"I wonder about that "sell in May and go away", We are almost in middle of May and it seems to gathering strength. It is kind of odd market is continuing its momentum upward."
Like usual, everyone wants to ride the bull, even when they know it's only a Mechanical Bull with Bernanke at the controls. "Ride-em Bud!
Lots of things just don't add up these days. It seems as though everyone has taken their eyes off of the 85 Billion dollars a month the Federa Reserve is pumping into the economic balloon, not to mention the all time stockmarket high with Interest Rates holding at near zero. We can ride the bull while Bernanke has the "Bull Buck" setting on "City Boy" ......but I see a financial storm brewing in the distance. Hope it's not a category 6.
Why do you think they're building up their Military/Navy/etc.
Currency wars, trade wars, food wars, fuel wars, water wars......you name it. We are living in a dangerous world my friend....an it's going to get worse...faster.
50% of America's enemies are already in our country in the form of politicians. As far as the bomb goes, I think Chicago already got hit.
North Korea's leader (Mr. Potato Head) is too stupid and way too ugly to attempt to be a leader of any country. Of course the rest of the country's citizens are just as ugly. You just got to love a country that has a "hand-me-down" president like Korea. I can hear it now; Daddy, can I be President after you die? I've been practicing war games with my toy soldiers and bottle rockets.
Meanwhile NORAD is probably prepping Nutron silo doors..... No. 105 thru 125.
The government is preparing for the end game with bullets, FEMA camps, drones, black helicopters, etc.
The food lines (food stamps) are masked as a " look what your country is doing for you" prop. With trillions in debt, our budget deficit steadily banging on the front castle gates and a growing population of "you owe me" clones, we are headed downhill fast.
Our Government has shown their Trump Card (the state America really is in) when they started crying over the measly sequester cuts...which was tiny and a fraud in itself. Oh, did I mention the war drums steadily beating........to the tune of Bomb Bomb Bomb......Bomb Bomb Iran. We can't afford another war and I think the whole world knows it.
With a leader like ours that came from that part of town, many America cities will be forced to follow Chicago's lead.
In pre market the Euro is down 2% and oil is down 3%.......that isn't a very good sign for RDS-A.
Another Europe country bail-out and more Euro-phobia. I think our favorite stock will be beaten like a beardless Taliban.
Oldpro, if you look closely, there's a decimal point to the left of the 9%
I think I'd pick Peter's bonus over mcgrabb's bonus....... (joke).
P.S. My bonus was under 3.3M Euro's................Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy under.
No more dangerous than a 16.5 Trillion dollar national debt, a 1 Trillion dollar + budget deficit, a country representing the policemen of the world, a Federal Reserve buying 80 Billion a month of U.S. Sovereignty each month, a FED keeping the interest rates near ZERO for years and a bunch of socialist tea-drinkers that keep voting the same clueless #$%$ 'so-called leaders back in office.
Things are dangerous here too, you might say a different kind of dangerous.
The big game continues
With the stock market venues’
Politicians keep having their fun
For the common investor
And this looming sequester
Should we all take the money and run
I think it’s a shame
This political game
The side that you’re on all depends
But we all shut our eyes
To the political lies
And America will lose when it ends
