What goes up must come down. China economy is in a free fall. Russia about to invade all of Ukraine, the Baltic's. U.S. deficit heading for 17 trillion plus. And you "longs" think everything is 'hunky-dory". HA
and you certainly don't want to get caught in a wrong way trade with Russia about to invade Ukraine and everyone slapping "nasty" sanctions on each other. Market looks ripe for a "major correction" and if that happen Zynga nose dives possibly to low $4's or high $3's.
Don't fight Putin. He could care less if world stock markets free fall for days, week or months. He wants Ukraine lock, stock and barrel and no one is going to stop him. Spy unfortunately will suffer going forward and one has to wonder if at some points there are no buyers (long position) since who wants to try to catch a very big fat falling knife?
Putin is all in on invading Ukraine but stock market doesn't realize the crisis. Come Monday we could see the DOW down big time and Spy open Sub $175. Its going to be a bad week for world stock markets next week so who knows where SPY bottoms next week. $160 something or lower???
and "uvxy longs" know Uvxy could jump 30% come Monday next week. Its not going to be a hand to hand battle over Ukraine. Nope its going to be a sanction battle the likes the world has never seen. Best buy Uvxy for the fire works next week. Its going to light up the sky for miles around.
Hope all you longs have your stop in place. OH, sorry now I realize your stop positions are way above $165 and you will have to decide to sell at a lower price or hope for some miracle up trend. Unfortunately market will trade lower and lower as we go through the day on Monday. Sorry longs but you are now "Dead Man Walking".
Very Cool -
The popular drag-racing game CSR Racing has just been updated with new features and improvements.
Introduced at Apple's WWDC and released on iOS in June 2012, CSR Racing is a game that dares you to take over the city by taking on the drag-racing crews that are said to rule it. The game features multiplayer competition, licensed car models, and impressively rendered graphics, among others.
So does FB dive 5% or more on Monday on this news???
WhatsApp, which is to be acquired for $19 billion, says on its website that “communication between your phone and our server is fully encrypted.” The company warns users need to be aware that when they send messages, the recipient’s device may not be secure. But it says it does not store any chat history and that messages are wiped off its system after delivery.
Yet security researchers and others point out that there are vulnerabilities in the system used by some 450 million people globally. Paul Jauregui at the security firm Praetorian said in a blog post Thursday that WhatsApp security and encryption are not ideal, citing vulnerabilities in the way it handles SSL, the secure socket layer protocol for communications. The group’s mobile security test “picked up on several SSL-related security issues affecting the confidentiality of WhatsApp user data that passes in transit to back-end servers,” Jauregui said. “This is the kind of stuff the NSA (National Security Agency) would love. It basically allows them — or an attacker — to man-in-the-middle the connection and then downgrade the encryption so they can break it and sniff the traffic.
These security issues put WhatsApp user information and communications at major risk.”
Not me since company just leverage its bleak future with 19 Billion dollar buying fiasco and market in general is ripe for a major correction. Best to sell out at $68 then wake up Monday and see $58 staring you in the face.
and better yet Monday close at $59 a share. You can see it coming a mile away.
Yep the fed is going to taper until QE is all gone. That scares the hell out of the market. Then tomorrow morning before the market opens, we have the "big" Walmart miss. And my friends - Walmart will miss by a mile. Lastly, you know things are getting worse then better in Ukraine. Look for either more blood shed, Russian intervention or all out civil war. And don't forget Ukraine will default later this year on its debt. Market looks ripe for a Major Sell Off.
The severe weather that has hit much of the country this winter has cost the economy nearly $50 billion in lost productivity and 76,000 jobs, according to a new survey.
Snow, ice and bitter cold will shave about 0.3 percentage point from economic growth, according to Wall Street economists, fund managers and strategists polled by CNBC. In an economy with about $15.7 trillion in total output, or gross domestic product, that comes to about $47 billion. The weather that has made much of the country at times look like it could host the Winter Olympics also hindered labor market growth, partly causing the disappointing government jobs reports in December and January.
Look for volatility to come next week in spades.
and the worst is yet to come since February is not factored into winter damage figures. Oh, and more snow in mid-Atlantic and Northwest foretasted for Monday night into Tuesday. Wonder if Tvix hits $8 or a share next week, as U.S. economy comes to a crawl.
Don't think stock market will like this news when it opens Tuesday morning. And when they estimate 50 billion, they really mean 100 billion (plus) in losses
"The January freeze and crippling storms gripping the eastern United States and upper Midwest are having significant impacts on normal life and commerce," Morici said. "The country braces for cold and storms each winter, but this year's conditions are more severe than cities and counties customarily prepare to address," he said.
The bad weather was blamed for a 0.4% drop in retail sales in January compared with December. “Following a solid holiday sales season, it seems that many consumers decided to take a break from the stores and shopping malls this January in an attempt to avoid winter weather,” Mathew Shay, president of the National Retail Federation, said Thursday after the Commerce Department reported the disappointing sales figures.
And all this does not factor in a very nasty February that further damages U.S. economy.
Good move buying Dust. Once Yellen starts talking in a few minutes gold will sell off. Republican's will hit hard to speed up tapering and Yellen will re-enforce that she plans to taper throughout the year. Furthermore, we all know cold weather impacted jobs in December, January (and possibly February) but the U.S. economy is improving. Fed has no choice now but to taper on a regular basis or look like fools. Dust to me looks like a steal at $23.80 a share.
