More than 24 hours and I have a 1 thumb rating, none down. 1 person that expresses a meaningful opinion. That's bleak IMO. Everyone else has nothing to say. That sure appears to be silent compliance for a president who IMHO, is one of the worst ever.
Not that you have better things to do, you took time out........Obama on Friday tweeted links to a pair of summer playlists — one for daytime, another for after the sun sets — as the White House launched a channel on Spotify. ------ No need to examine why Lerner took the fifth. No point into getting to the Sec of State Clinton botch job in Benghazi, so what that the national debt is skyrocketing, no big deal that so many of your pet green projects went belly-up, The VA thing, no big thing. So glad too that the White House was lit up in rainbow colors the same day the Supreme Court ruled on same-sex marriages; like you said, "Pretty cool." Almost as 'cool' as waiting 5 days to order lowering the flag to honor the military men killed in Chattanooga.
Oh, excerpt of your Nov 20, 2014 speech --- All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America. And undocumented immigrants who desperately want to embrace those responsibilities see little option but to remain in the shadows, or risk their families being torn apart. It’s been this way for decades. And for decades we haven’t done much about it. When I took office, I committed to fixing this broken immigration system. And I began by doing what I could to secure our borders. -----also this that day ----- Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. ------ You do talk a good game, Barack. How about a tweet or two of your favorite movies? Top 5 places you traveled? Your most requested dinner when at the White House?
Your reply hints of failing to understand my message. I was not referring to Trump specifically. Obama was talking about Trump in terms of Obama wanting "to make sure I'm turning over the keys to somebody who is serious about the serious problems the country." You do realize no president decides who gets the keys to the White House. The obvious election cycle, voting and the electoral college votes determine the next president. To my point, Obama has revealed his narcissistic mindset in the most glaring way to date. He has more than a year to make it more obvious. Therefore, I could be wrong about Obama's narcissism peaking. BTW: a partial list of neglected problems that are serious. IRS partiality from the top and Lerner taking the fifth, Bergdahl and five Taliban terrorist swap, VA debacle, former Sec. of State Clinton unsecured server (form OF 109 nowhere to be found) and her noncompliance of records release, 911 Part 2 (Benghazi raid), billions spent, given to green start-ups that went BK, insensitive to the military (the Chattanooga shootings) whereby it took days to order flags lowered but it took relatively no time to order rainbow lighting at the White House. There's so much more to show Obama's distorted vision and warped priorities.
Obama expressing his disdain of presidential hopeful Trump.
"In 18 months, I'm turning over the keys -- I want to make sure I'm turning over the keys to somebody who is serious about the serious problems the country faces and the world faces." How self-centered is Obama even hinting that he has nothing more than 1 vote?
That is the 3 month average volume according to TVIX summary page. Approx. 3.5 million now. Has the motivation to sell decreased significantly? Seemingly we have the first indication of that. Friday after all trading is complete, add all 5 days of volume to get an average.
You've posted, "The short position has no effect on the price this trades." No doubt you are free to believe that. I think holding that as true is completely erroneous. If weeks of buying off the ask have 'no effect' then you'd have credibility. Weeks of buying off the ask hasn't happened yet. I see it as probable. Selling pressure or shorting into the bid and that said selling is evidenced in a 20% increase in shares short most recently. I maintain that said selling helped to drive the price down. Shorts supposedly could short and hold and hold forever, NOT! To close their position rather than have their funds locked in TVIX shares short will IMO, create buying pressure and have TVIX move over a dollar. Certainly you do not share that view. CS has been buying shares so, your second point is a non sequitur. I'd say it's more credible to watch CS (Credit Suisse) foment a short squeeze. Surely you don't agree. Time will prove one of us correct in our overall directional move forthcoming. For many of us out there, we know what a swing trade is and this one could see surprising upside with the shorts covering for a profit; a booked profit, not a paper one.
The script popular for bashers now is delisting because the share price is under $1. And in the context of time, 6 months is a near eternity for almost any equity. And any NYSE delisting notice allows a 6 month window for an equity to get back over a dollar. Any delist scare mongering now is meant to scare a new or recent holder that is unaware of the procedure to delist, to sell for shorts' cover. Shorts from mid April to the end of the month boosted their short position to 62,813,706 or nearly a 20% increase from the prior report; IMO a very bold move on their part. Some of us that have been around for an extended period using and reading message boards see that move as a short raid. Shorts systematically sell into the bid over several days or weeks. Their objective is to fuel momentum to the downside. Those that are buying see the bid get hit repeatedly and some of the new holders feel it's best to exit ASAP. They sell into the bid as well and accept a small loss. The website bigcharts has a quick-to-configure two week chart that shows the TVIX decline from over $1.80. But there is no strategy that works 100% of the time, not even for shorts. Relative to the boost in shares sold short, institutional holdings are showing an increase on their part. The biggest increase from Credit Suisse, upping their stake by 29,192,157 or by more than 250%. I am not here to encourage you to buy. However, if you are fearful based on what you read from those who truly do need shares, hopefully now at least, you are better informed.
