Or should I say Putin needs cash to keep his job and the Russian economy from a continuing death spiral. Gold selling will now be the standard going forward in Russia, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and even Japan. Everyone will falling currencies needs cash to say alive so Gold Drops Like A Brick going forward.
Not sure but overseas news (tonight) will be ugly causing the Bull to run cover tomorrow and hide his fat behind.
Well I've thought that many times over the last year or so, but I agree with your thinking. Even if the U.S. economy is improving - Uncle Sam won't be able to sell good overseas with China, Japan and now Europe all going down the toilet. And if you think Greece is in bad shape just look at Portugal and Italy. Their debt load is to the moon and Spain is not far behind. Thinking the market dives again tomorrow and this time doesn't recover.
U.S. economy improving,, more people working, more drivers driving - oil headed higher. So buy UCO first and maybe USO second.
Many think Putin all in now for upcoming invasion into Ukraine, Poland, Baltic States and then Europe. World leaders look weak in a mounting Russian attack on the Euro zone. Watch out Spy - it could come sooner then you think.
Time for Israel to lower the hammer on Iran's underground nuclear threat. If we let Kerry have his way he will continue to extend Iran negotiations into the decade, thus insuring that Iran will have the "bomb" sometime in the near future. Kerry can't handle Putin or ISIS, but he sure can make a bad deal with Iran or far worse keep extending further talks with Iranian terrorists to the benefit of whom? The U.S. or the Iranians?
It is a complete Joke - but Kerry loves the spotlight as a " worldwide wheeler and dealer". The "State" department is also a joke thinking it can may a deal with the Devil (Iran), when in reality there never was a deal to made in the first place.
Headline treading now - US tells Iran to consider nuclear talks extension - The move marks the first formal recognition by Washington that a deal won't be reached by the target date of midnight Monday, creating the need for additional talks.
Think about it. Putin back is against the wall. Pretty much my his own doing, but he didn't foreseen falling oil prices. Russian economy is a disaster and getting worse. With the Ruble in a free fall Russian has been increasing their gold reserves. Buying as much as they can. So what is Putin up to?
Well if he can't increase oil (which is heading South) then starting World War III is the next best thing for Putin since gold will jump through the roof and Russian gold holding's could double over night. Of course the Stock market would drop 50% if such a event took place, but Putin is a "crazy" guy with little to lose. He's 61, 62 years old, has a gymnast girlfriend in her 20"s and lives and breath KGB dream every night. You think Hitler was crazy - then just watch Putin going forward.
So Putin (little Hitler) invades Ukraine and send Russians bombers over Europe. He cut off all gas and oil to Europe and tells China "You take out Japan and I'll take out Europe". We both win. U.S. can't stop us from taking over our neighbors, with a weak President in charge. Yes its going to get ugly yet Putin would rather take down the word if Russia is going up in smoke. And believe me "Russia is in pure melt down mode" as we write. Its only a question now when little Putin pushes the "Button" to start World War III.
which surely means "Volatility Means Nothing Anymore" as Spy pushes into the $210 to $220 range. With China, Europe and Japan's respective economies falling month to month as Ukraine and Middle East go into "Major Crisis Mode" the American Bull gets stronger and heads for new highs. Bad news is now good news and threats of Nuclear war with Russia are ample reason to go long the Stock market. The Fed is now God and Yellen is the Messiah. 2015 will be better then 2014 as Volatility runs rampant, pushing world stock markets to new highs, the like we've never seen before. Let it Be
possibly heading for $4 come Friday if U.S. Senate majority is up in the air while after Tuesday's election. Throw in Russian troops and convoys back inside Ukraine and China looking more and more like Japan and Tvix might just be the place to be as world markets sink.
Putin will accept the Ukraine rebel vote as legit, just like his "so called legit take over of Crimea". When Putin gives his blessings to the rebel vote, world stock markets drop since the crazy Russian leader is saying "war and direct intervention into Ukraine and surrounding countries are coming by year end". Look for Russian soldiers moving back into Eastern Ukraine with the intent now to take over the whole country by early next year.
Agree - anyone buying in under $3 or ever $3.50 should do well going forward. Volatility reared its ugly head two weeks ago and it will do so again in November and December. Russia now on a daily basis invading Europe air space while still threatening to freeze have of Europe. A few state elections on Tuesday could be end in a "dead heat" for Senator positions. Election run offs could take months which will also increase volatility. China now having a difficult time hiding behind fake GDP numbers as Japan throws the Yen to the wind and says "We Give Up". Market will correct again sometime this year but I doubt we see a Santa rally in December with Europe, China and Japan are all sinking further into the mud.
So how does Japan printing play money prevent World War III starting in Europe, with Russian take over of Ukraine and Eastern Europe?
As Vladimir Putin’s Russia continues to threaten Ukraine after stealing Crimea in the spring and exerting de facto Kremlin control over much of the Donbas this summer, war worries are mounting on NATO’s eastern frontier. New reports of Russian troop movements on the Ukrainian border this week are not reassuring to those Atlantic Alliance members who suffered Soviet occupation for decades, and still live in Moscow’s neighborhood. Neither are Russian air force incursions into Western airspace calming nerves with their reborn Cold War antics: yesterday, NATO fighters intercepted no less than nineteen Russian combat aircraft, including several heavy bombers. No NATO countries are more worried about Kremlin aggression than the Baltic states, with their small militaries and lack of strategic depth — countries that are frankly indefensible in any conventional sense without significant and timely Alliance assistance.
But Poland is the real issue when it comes to defending NATO’s exposed Eastern frontier from Russian aggression.
it realizes Japan is in such bad shape then can print all the money they want and their weak economy will still keep falling as world economies crater.
and if it does just watch the stock explode over $36 a share (maybe higher).
COMPANY THINKING ON SPLIT: After shedding its animal-health and nutrition businesses in recent years, Pfizer said it would entertain splitting up the company. Starting this year, Pfizer began breaking out the financials for its three units, a requirement for any split. “What we do eventually will really depend upon how those businesses perform--how our shareholders value those businesses,” Pfizer Chief Executive Ian Read said during a second-quarter earnings call in July. How did those businesses perform in the third quarter?
as futures drop. Apple news will fade as day goes buy and traders will concentrate on future earnings which appear weak going forward due to geopolitical problems, China slowdown and Europe collapse. Timing is everything with Tvix so here we go.
