Yeah, pud about that...
That chinese dude called and left a message for you. He said that "sum yung gai" you like is going up in price next week.....he says take advantage now while you can, whatever that means.
Oh look, the NSA appointed SPY board thumber hit my post!
I'm so upset I could just #$%$ kittens!
Ok, so that's the "one reason.....yadda yadda", and now the ten things to do while waiting....."
1. Put pud on ignore
2. Have a beer
3. Smoke it if you have it
4. Watch more porn. No need to waste time watching the markets, they only go up, so get long and watch porn.
5. Paint the inside of your house.
6. Paint the outside of your house.
7. Get a new hobby.
8. Write a letter to Cramer.
9. Take MK's trading education program. (chortle).
10. Put pud on ignore again, and have another beer.
Yes, it seems the powers that be want you to have faith in the talking heads for some reason, and given everything I've seen over the past few months, I think there's definitely a hint, clue, dead giveaway for anyone trading.
The Central planners seem to think they are quite successful in creating the illusion that we are in a downright Clintonesque 90's type economy / market.
Something happened in 2008-2009 about the same time the bottom was being shaped up in the stock indices. The central planners were devising their master plan to lift and levitate the markets, and put systems in place that would never let it happen again.....including collusion and NON-TRANSPARENCY with major financial institutions. It also includes HFT, order stuffing, and something akin to money laundering.
As of Feb. 2014, the apex of the master plan has been in play. This market will not go down big until THEY desire it too.
Like the 90's, this market will only climb higher and higher, but unlike the 90's, there won't be a rational justification for it.
I've done some research recently that revealed to me, that there have been some major cover ups involving out-sized losses in no less than three major financial institutions, (US based) with five more implied.
The take away? We've had a recent pull back, and once again, it's time to go long.
I think if we could idiotize the sterilzation process, the climate change situation would reverse automatically.
There, fixed it for you.
When does it ever seem to matter?
We get our five minutes of bear market, and then back up we go.
Earnings have been poor for three quarters, imho. It don't matter.
They're all the same.
When Clinton signed NAFTA, it marked the beginning of the catastrophic era.
The effects of that legislation slowly eroded the economy, and slowly destroyed an entire sector of the economy, namely manufacturing.
The major corporations and big banks control everything. They want things produced by slave labor and only think about profit margin.
The central banks are in on it, and will create the conditions needed to convince the working class of the world that a one world system would be better.
The Clinton years were awesome, but we had a naturally occurring strong cycle for business and employment, and american corporations were still building their goods in america.
One of the important things any administration must do if there is to be any hope of the return of prosperity in the U.S.A. is to REPEAL NAFTA.
The other thing, the central bank needs to be dealt with. The constitution provides that the treasury may print currency when needed, and not as a debt to the tax payers. The central bank is a scam.
No, gave up on trying to post my TA here without you pestering me.
I shared my insight for years, then you showed up.
Lately you've been giving me migraines, so I don't post as much.
You will see more and more credit card, auto loans, student loans, etc. going delinquent, and a rise in foreclosures.
Too many price increase "taxes" on a population that has an oversupply of underpaying jobs.
pud, have you heard anything about fukushima lately?
Seems they're doing a good job of keeping all eyes off the situation.
I've heard estimates that as much as 1/3 of the sea life of the Pacific is lying at the ocean floor dead.
I take my records to H&R block and let them deal with it.
It's well worth the couple hundred bucks to not have the headaches.
Lavrov's comments would support what you're saying.
However, the number of Russian tanks rolling out, which has been observed, seems to contradict what's being stated.
It's a very good observation.
Also, i might add, that not only will the bots throw you a head fake, but will often throw a double head fake at you.
Trading has become increasingly difficult over the past few years, and early this year the bot owners took it to a new level with some improved technology.
2013 was a so so year for me. Started out great and profits started getting watered down as I began accumulating crash insurance, most of which expires worthless while waiting for a big sell off, that may never materialize in this manipulated market.
The funny thing I realized, is that I could have made just as much with Goog leaps purchased in Feb. last year and not even looked at the market for months on end, let alone the daily work I put in.
