This is what happens when the system is run for those who destroy value rather than those who create it. Everything is hyperlevered against fundamentals and these are desperate attempts to unload fraudulently priced financial assets via the UpperDeck (unloading into call interest). The Growth Cartel gas strategically restricted shorts IMHO while predatory institutional shorts pump the bid to squeeze retail shorts and put buyers. If INVESTORS outside of the cartel don't liquidate, the Collusive Cartel unloads even more into index tracking funds via the rebalancing (the reverse process happens by tanking real investments like INTC or MSFT, where passive funds are forced to sell at the lows).
Value is only destroyed through these glorified theft operations.
Sell LT OOM put options, fully covered by liquidating Protection Rackets and selling bonds which are certain to lose value in real terms. They feed themselves via the synthetic finance profit stream at everyone else's expense. Time for judo.
And rotate from public markets subject to HFT/MM glorified theft to private transactions where not subject to their tax... Do it each and every day, $ for $, without leverage and those whose nearly infinite abuse of what is actually finite real asset leverage will be their undoing as the disconnect between value creation and value capture unwinds and the American Dream is restored.
Eventually, all in the REAL economy will realize that even those who gain in the short term from these games lose in the long term, as it is skimming from ALL producers, savers and investors. Any system run for those who extract or destroy value at the expense of those who create it is certain to collapse in real terms and eventually fail.
Of course, they could not perpetuate the financial asset ponzi without the complicity of those who've been essentially bought off using the fraudulent financial assets. Sometime soon it will dawn on those complicit that what they've been paid and "own" is worth little. And they will be the ones thrown under the bus when it falls apart should they not choose to be part of the solution first.
Of the effective control of the money supply (credit). Fractional reserve banking is inherently a financial asset ponzi where phantom AND SENIOR financial claims on real flows of value have concentrated "wealth" and control in the banking sector over time by frontrunning boom/bust cycles.
Now, all of us can turn the institutional abuse against those few people and institutions who've systematically stolen from the rest of society. Convert their financial assets (especially the consumption ponzis / Protection Rackets) to gold and investment into ourselves via private domestic producers who will rebuild our self sufficiency and resiliency. In the process, you will be restoring integrity and investment signal to the market while restoring the connection between value creation and value capture that is the essence if the American Dream.
INTC slammed past few days pre-market, MSFT own 7% after earnings while those that generate no cash flow and require new funding from WS surge 35%... They are trying to run the rebalancing (ETF stuffing and gutting) cycle again. Sell deep OOM puts on INTC and MSFT once oversold, liquidate these rackets to reserve cash for it and buy gold. Each and every day. $ for $ without leverage.
Not on the Selling on Strength list yet again. I mean, who would take profits on the underlying after gaining 35% on declining Operating Cash Flow and an announcement that another billion would be required to perpetuate the ponzi? Huge surge in $440 calls after open... More algo in the $450 range later in the day....
INVESTORS who have a stake in markets with integrity who are tired of HFT/MM effectively stealing from them via option manipulation and ETF/MF frontrunning (both stuffing and gutting) need only convert these Protection Rackets to cash and gold each and every day to end it all forever.... The option manipulation has turned everything upside down, almost perfectly positioned against fundamentals.
ONLY the endgame matters Sybs.
Bump. Each and every day, $ for $, without leverage. They are hyperlevered against fundamentals and will implode if INVESTORS patiently convert the glorified theft operations they've used to stuff/gut/frontrun into cash and gold (which are real options without expiration and all one needs to protect against the true tail risks).
Nothing gibberish about it. The markets have been run for the benefit of HFT/MM who effectively rob asset owners and investors. It has destroyed so much trust that secular decline is certain. The boomers who control the majority of the wealth will continue rotating to bonds from stocks... The public is slowly converting the float scams to cash and bonds. Once portfolios start increasing gold allocation (since ALL financial assets are overextended), it's over.
I'll be posting for as long as it takes to end the glorified theft that has destroyed the value add of our financial markets.
Flows will balance... Right now, the infinite leverage boys are trying to make their phantom AND SENIOR (fraudulent) claims wipeout the equity of those owning real assets and real options. All A Few Good Men (SMS Women) need to do to end the financial asset ponzi forever is convert ALL financial assets (and that includes bonds which are mathematically certain to lose value in real terms) to cash and gold in whatever proportion they choose (50/50 is a nice start). Those who've run the financial asset ponzi and systematically stolen from producers, savers and investors will eventually be exposed. The sooner the better for 99.9% of the world.
Cash, it is the mechanism through which integrity and investment signal will return to the financial sector, short of guillotines for those who've run the financial asset ponzi for decades (in some cases centuries).
Bump. Use their distortions against them. Each and every day. $ for $. Without leverage. They are hyperlevered against fundamentals and will eventually implode.
But, I encourage your crew and Trendy's to sell as much gold as you can and buy as much of these glorified theft operations as possible so the MF/ETFs that have been stuffed via the manipulation can exit their positions at these fraudulent prices.
And all the institutions will be unloading onto retail having priced in the global expansion predicated upon Protection Racket financing...
NFLX is quite a pre market outlier right now. Gotta scalp that premium you know. For now, synthetic finance leverage ratio is extraordinarily high, so as long as someone keeps buying calls, they'll keep pumping the bid to unload via the Upper Deck. But, just as it failed at around 480 before, it will fail again. And, with the global expansion already priced in, all the MOMO players will exit. Value won't buy this before it's cut in half.
