Since she will think the market is very comfortable with interest rate hikes sooner versus later. Of course we all know different but Yellen will see the market as accepting her forward guidance as far as raising rates early next year. Best not wish for another green day (longs) or Yellen might just raise interest rates this year. Scary stuff for the bull.
Not sure I'd want to push anything right now that sticks to the NFL. I mean the three letter title is "radio active" and only going to get worse and Goodell resigns and female fans leave the game in droves. Znga's new NFL games has to be the worst time of any new on line roll out game in the history or "roll outs". Think we test $2.50 Wednesday on Fed rate hike warning and more investors dumping Znga.
Know one wants to be "long" Spy heading into Wednesday's Fed warning on rate increases and Friday results of Scottish Yes vote win. Its going to be a double punch to the Bull's gut.
A two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting ends Wednesday and economists said they are expecting the Federal Reserve will announce some sort of change on forward guidance as it prepares to end its asset-purchase program. Look out Bulls - The Fed no longer likes you and is extremely tired feeding you. Get ready to lose your horns come Wednesday afternoon.
It’s a simple question, but it has enormous implications: should Scotland be an independent country? This week, the people of Scotland will have a chance to vote “yes” or “no,” thus determining whether to remain part of the United Kingdom. Recent polls suggest that the vote could go either way, with consequences that extend from the Royal Bank of Scotland to the royal residence at Buckingham Palace
The optimistic view is that after a “yes” vote Scotland and the remaining UK members would work together to ensure a smooth transition to independence. The pessimistic view is that all hell will break loose. Either way volatility is back and that sucks the air out of SPY.
China in major trouble since government's phony numbers can't hide the fact China Economy in Major Slow Down. Pop goes the weasel.

Fed taking the free money punch bowl away from the stock market on Wednesday - 350 point market drop?
Scots want their freedom but don't tell the Brits that. Market could care less about Alibaba IPO on Friday, when news hits that Scotland is leaving Britain and the market correcting 200 points to the down side.
Bulls might not make it to Friday next week, but if they do they will only be standing on three legs and missing both horns.

The Federal Reserve will drop its promise to keep rates near zero for a "considerable time" after it ends its bond-buying program, paving the way for a first Fed rate hike in June 2015, a top Wall Street economist predicted on Friday.
Looks like September get real interesting next week as "correction time" inches closer.
Maybe she can hide in Scotland like the little lass she is. Of course after Friday's vote to succeed.
No lorenavedon - you don't get it. A break away region in Spain means Spain defaults on billions in debt. And we all know what little Greece did to world markets a few years back, when they threatened default. Europe about ready to go the way of the dodo bird, but don't tell lorenavedon that,
So do you really, really want to go long Spy heading into a major train wreck?
On September 18th Scotland will vote on whether or not to leave the United Kingdom and break a union that has lasted over 300 years. While it long seemed as though an independent Scotland was only a pipedream, recent polls have shown that a ‘yes’ vote is actually very likely.
The implications could go beyond Scotland and the UK and have drastic effects on the eurozone as a whole, particularly Spain. “The most obvious parallel is with Catalonia,” says Wolf, referring to the autonomous region in Spain that has often protested for recognition as an independent state. Around 55% of Catalans support independence from Spain and the Scotland referendum has fueled new protests throughout Barcelona.
On Thursday, an estimated 1.8 million protesters marched through the streets of Barcelona waving independence flags and wearing yellow-and-red shirts with the phrase "Now is the time" and shouting "Independencia!,"
xtgeminiman - you are dead wrong. Market will run scared next week as in down, down, down. Bull doesn't like what it see in Britain. Mad cow disease will raise it head with Scotland about to break free and send world markets crashing. Then Putin ramps up invasion into Ukraine helping Rebels destroy what ever is in their path. Then throw in Middle East unrest, a weak U.S. President at the helm and a very overbought U.S. stock market and you have the perfect recipe for a "Major Correction". But lets get back together next Friday and see where things are - especially if Scotland wins with a "YES" vote.
Just curious what the see's for tomorrow. My thinking is market might sell off a little due to to much uncertainty on Scotland status, Europe slowdown and Russia's reaction to more sanctions. Of course U.S. market seem to ignore Geo-policital stuff so maybe we just follow our own song.
Give Me A Break - Justice is Blind
but I think there are several other factors at play that might cause Tvix to spike higher. Apple looks weak going forward, Russia starting to cut off gas supplies to Poland and possibly Europe and housing looks dismal going into 2015. Tbis might just see a lot more up days then down days now - as investors sell out and sit on the sidelines.
