Very tempting to take up a position today... but I am sorry folks the macro environment is just awful and we are showing weakness across the board with the Qs looking awful toppy... NOK likely to go along for the ride.
Joaquin Almunia, whose term ends on Oct. 31, is determined to punish the two banks
“He will want to end on a high note,”
One possible stumbling block for Almunia is that some of the four holdouts may raise confidentiality issues similar to those that dogged a probe into credit derivatives trading by 13 of the world’s biggest banks, said two of the people.
The CDS case, which also targets JPMorgan and HSBC, was stalled after company lawyers demanded, and won, the right to see business secrets compiled by investigators.
Worldwide fines for rigging interest rate benchmarks reached $6 billion after the EU’s December settlements. Those fines may be the tip of the iceberg as global regulators added probes into manipulation of currency and commodities markets.
Too much taboo out there in the USA market, for now and for some small time to come. The market for topical pain management and other positive effects from hemp oil could possibly grow faster than the THC edibles market. Just look in your wife's medicine cabinet.
Anderson Cooper doing a pre-nterview with Gupta and 2 gems came out:
1 - THC is primarily an anti-inflammatory!!!
2 - Cannabis oil for treatment!!!
The show at 10pm will be geared towards "this is screwed up why can't I legally buy his stuff"
Harley we saw this happen the day before Q3 earnings report also if you remember, all sorts of thumbs down for anything mildly positive, and also lots of new bashing posts. Something is in the works!
Either MSFT closed or something happened in one of the patent trials is my guess. Should know by 2pm.
Much of the common folk in the world are confused how this escalated in the first place and whether these events are being driven, deliberate provocation of Russia forcing Putin's hand. Unity government is a nice Monday morning QB call from the armchair but not practical. Let's call puppet regimes what they are. The people of Ukraine will either need to submit or fight for their country.
Well and here we have it, the bearish reversal has been dismissed and we have confirmed bullish continuation. On no news. 5% increase of JPM market cap on no news after a disappointing investor's day.
While bankers jump off roofs and BoE testimony next week, soon the Fed will get called out. This has got to be the final master stroke of fraud before it all comes crashing down.
Notice as more and more FX details escape, Russia is provoked more and more. They are preparing a major distraction to the imminent disastrous FX news coming.
Could have opted for integrated Garmin. Nope. Will use available maps on my smart device for free. This is a real threat to be dealt with by the way, if revenues are too tied to automobile sales.
Took the rebate on a Dart GT. Poor folks don't see this check coming. Brought to you by NOK $7 January 2014 call performance. NOK at $9 and it was going to be at least a 3-series.
Yeah yeah it's a compact. But I'll challenge even most Accords and M6's and have a little fun for a bargain.
Dear market, please let me buy a v6 manual without getting a car that needs a v8 like a mustang, etc. Even Accord v6 is auto only. Cherokee trailhawk was a slam dunk with that 3.2L v6 until I saw it was auto only. Then I saw it had push-button 4-wheel drive and I ran far away.
The ink may have been dry for months.
Of course, wouldn't AAPL be fundamentally opposed to purchasing *until* the MSFT deal closes? In this way, AAPL will coolect HERE payments from MSFT, a sweet victory for AAPL. HERE is less valuable to AAPL if the MSFT deal were to collapse.
$30B is defensible. $35B+ maybe when deal closes comined with any visibility into future plans.
