The general consensus of FOMC Members toward a rate increase will largely be based upon each member having seen at least a $5 million gain since March 2009.
or less, historic fact.
there is NO RISK.
even if VOLATILITY SOARS, it does not matter, nothing actually can drive this scam higher, nothing whatsoever, period. If you can 'short' it, you'll make a lot of money, 100% guaranteed.
and a 100 share holder will end up with 10 shares!
I am unable to post/comment a reply, although I agree with you, because Yahoo police are censoring my postings.
Oh, I agree 100%, the VIX is manipulated, but a 40% drop in 5 trading days is comparable to a fundamental crash, as in 2008. While manipulation is apparent, 40% is a meltdown in my book.
I noticed several headlines about IBM's miss and I was wondering, why in the world would that matter? The other day, Google missed 'revenue' numbers for a 5th consecutive time, the stock rose more than the entire Bond default of Puerto Rico in 6.5 hours. Over the last 72 months and 108 days, actually ending last Friday, July 17th, the Dow is up 176.3%, the Nasdaq up 310.7%, printing a new record high today which is the second this year. The S&P is up 214.3% and booked 53 new record highs in 2014, essentially one per/week. Of the entire Market-Cap of the NASDAQ, just four companies ... Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon represent over 30% (31.2% actual), $1.7 trillion in Market-Cap value. so, IBM missed ... so what? Any thoughts as why ANY COMPANY MISS matters whatsoever in this market? I should note, the VIX last week fell the most in 5 days than it ever has since the Index was created, in other words, 'volatility' or what some might call 'risk', is entirely NON-EXISTENT in this so-called stock market.
and rest assured, single digits soon thereafter.
The prospectus clearly states the Issuer can 'decouple' from the tracking index whenever 'negative' or otherwise destructive events cause negative net-worth exposure. I do wonder however, if the price action is just being managed by the managers or if it has been tied to the NASDAQ or Google.
5th time they missed, but you would need to actually read what the last 4 numbers were and that would require that you need to be able to read more than a headline.
Missing numbers is now the new BUY theme, sorry, remains the BUY theme for 6 straight years, along with failure too!
within a few minutes if not 2,300's.
as you consider the headline news around the world, from China's meltdown to Greece and everything in between, "volatility" has entirely collapsed setting a near historic low and falling in the last five days more than it ever has, as in since it was created. Make sense?
After learning that China's market fell more than the equivalent of 15 Greece's in 2 days, Greece borrowing another $100 billion it cannot repay to pay interest on two previous loans it cannot repay, that the U.S debt will exceed $20 trillion in 2016, that BLS reports 1/3rd of the American population is unemployed, that the number of American's receiving food stamps are five times the population of Greece. that 281,000 people applied for unemployment benefits last week, that two private equity firms are the largest landlords of single family homes, that OMB reports Wage Growth is officially at the 1971 level, and that 10 days after Janet Yellen proclaimed the Bio-sector is over-valued it rose 30%. Yep, VOLATILITY IS NOW OFFICIALLY DEAD.
after all, when you look at the world today, particularly this so-called stock market, it makes perfect sense.
will be the first 100 point daily rise in the S&P guaranteed.
