The US is the cleanest shirt among all he dirty shirts and with rates staying around ZERO for as long as one can see, money will flock to US markets until of course companies really start to miss earnings and I mean miss, Bankers always have to show profits, does that answer your question
LOL do you know how many times I have heard that since 1999 and although there are times when I am out of the money as I currently am ,I always rebound to in the money and sell for a profit, nothing has changed, what happened this past month is what smart traders call an opportunity, an opportunity to buy low and sell much higher,
Thanks for the offer, ...lol ,,,,cheers
LOL I laugh too all the way to the bank, last year I locked in 17% this year I will too, a slow start which enabled me to average down and buy the Q's at price we will most likely not revisit again, let's talk again in several weeks and see who is buying drinks....cheers
No normally if we have a 3 day weekend and are on shaky grounds so to speak there would not be a rally, shorts might have covered a bit but there were buyers, many more buyers, this rally continues unless some HUGE surprises occur, Mark this post Friday was turn around Friday....cheers
My man Jamie put a floor in the market , Dudley confirmed it Friday watch markets continue to head north next week, and for your information Q's ended the week flat so last week was a non event
you got that right, remember what he said....I will do what ever it takes !!!!
Why you ask is because litigation would cost more than paying the fine and would take too much time, Again banks are about making money so they pay the fine which ends up actually saving rather than fighting. The stupid Government believes they won and make a few dollars ,meanwhile Banks continue to make even more, the reality is if there was illegal practices then someone would go to Jail, they play by the rules , paying a fine is part of the business, it is accepted and expected just like in a bar , an owner knows bartenders will take some off the top, if it's not cash then it's how much they pour and then get tipped, as long as it is limited then it is part of doing business ...you got that !
World War...LOL whatever happens in Syria is NOT A WORLD WAR. you are delusional !!!!!
They are not different but they are good at what they do, their job is to make money and the do and stay within the rules most of the time, The Fed ,CB are not here to make money but to provide stability but instead they are completely lost and enable banks-markets to prosper even more so to create an illusion that the economy is getting stronger or is healthy, bernanke is the one to Blame, he is the main Criminal, His quote " buy keeping rates close to Zero for a sustainable time investors will have no choice but to take on risk in markets, markets will advance and people will feel good about their investments and in return will create buying that will cause a domino effect, demand in companies will excel and they will hire, more jobs will be created, with more jobs there will be more money spent in the economy, more money is spent then even more jobs will continue to grow and so forth", according to Bernanke it was a simple fix, Yellen followed and so did the rest of the Fed, such an easy fix. And our current Government drank the koolaid, Bankers play the game to win ithin the rules as an athlete. The Fed, CB they are the ones that mislead, Yellen say anything negative news is transitory, her famous word , yes it is and when things are stable -better they are also transitory, life is transitory. lol don't blame the banks-messenger , blame the source............
Yes at the moment they are because of the market but all they have to do is buy more just as Jamie did Thurs and if the Government changes the rule and reduces the Tax on companies earnings abroad so they can bring it home then you know the funds are going to be used for more buybacks, markets are a vicious circle, the main goal is to make money and as we witness time after time they always find away, this time is no different, and some companies will write it off...the wash-sale and help their profits on paper
They were probed, that is all that happened, they play with in the rules , they play the game, they win most of the time and people like you and Sanders get all upset and jealous. The Fed is the one to blame, CB are the ones to blame, they convince all they have the Fix , they enable banks, banks take advantage. Bottom line a Banker's job is to make money !! if you find $100 on the sidewalk what would you do...you would pick it up and be excited. The reality is your gain is someone's loss, CB do the same....
They are all criminals in that case according to you, The Fed, Banks you and Sanders should hang out, they play a game and they are good at it, the markets are a game, anytime there is risk then it becomes a game, you don't have to play!

would you like that , would that turn you on......lol now we know what side of the fence you are on, not that there is anything wrong with it... whatever works for you, I say , 'Live and Let live.. personally I prefer Bikinis ......cheers
Just calling is as it happens, I am very flexible but to have the dream or belief that 2009 or2000 is upon us, is about to happen is an outright fantasy
yes time will tell but the fact that it's a 3 day weekend and markets were up big today is a positive for longs, why you might ask, there is still no fear, controlled selling in the past weeks and then you have a day such as today, if things were bad then there would be a sell off not wanting to be long over a 3 day weekend....enjoy your weekend too
The U.S. economy has the momentum to help weather stormy global financial markets and policy makers have many other options before they would consider driving borrowing costs below zero if they need to protect growth, Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William Dudley said.
“I just find that an extraordinarily premature conversation to be having,” Dudley said at a press briefing Friday in New York. “There are a lot of things that we would do long before we would really think about moving to negative interest rates.”
Financial markets have been routed in recent weeks by concerns over the global economic outlook. Dudley said the Fed was “definitely aware of what’s going on internationally” and would take that into account when the policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee meets on March 15-16.
In a remark that will probably reinforce views among investors that the Fed will not hike interest rates next month, Dudley said that the outlook for how quickly inflation would rise has been dimmed by recent financial-market developments.
“Inflation is probably going to take a little bit longer to get back to our 2 percent objective, everything equal, than maybe what you thought a few months ago,” he said.
