Piles, your "You are an idiot" song never fails to crack me up. Unfortunately it also then gets stuck in a loop in my mental soundtrack.

RTEC is up .007 after hours. Oooh, I'm scared! :lol: Thanks again. Hopefully there will be another chance tomorrow to short one more POS.... but also hopefully, for the sake of all of our blood pressure, not as good a chance as today. It was a pleasant surprise to come home and see that my account wasn't looking as bad as I thought it would.

Congrats on catching two more piggies right at the top.

I miss Merciless's Bwa-ha-ha. Hope he's enjoying sailing around in his solid gold boat, or whatever he's doing.
Of course I'm caustic!

Richard Hoey Comment on Crapvision about Iraq War 20% Rally

:D

Maybe he thinks the price of oil will go down and help the market rally. Let see, Iraq is already producing oil at its highest level in a long time, so a war could only bring less not more oil (the opposite of first Gulf War where an oil embargo was in place).

Or maybe he is just ....

Hi Butt,
In case you do not know, although the WTC is gone, your favorite Century 21 has reopened. :)

QCOM looks like either a H&S neckline break or bearish wedge. Either way you cut the cheese - looks like it is going down to the mid-20's or lower.

Hi all. I was wondering if Doc or someone with a forum can do a poll with the question:

At what level will you most likely cover (+/- 10 points) in the next significant decline on the SPX?

Those fokkerz better take it easy on our gold. The action tonight is impeding my digestion somewhat.

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

Thank you for another great column Mark. You managed to change "Beating Expectations" into "Expectations of a Beating".

By the way, do you think Mrs. Green has shoes to match Al's new bag?

Damn funny stuff Mark and B,

Got this

http://biz.yahoo.com/cc/5/26475.html

off IDS today and listened to the call. Mark, you should hear it. Also funny but in a different way. Listen so you know you are not the only one seeing what is dead ahead.


Second your recommendation: good listening from an inside player. Some of it is hard to follow but the further you go into it the more clear the warnings are. He draws a parallel with 1978, when people said interest rates would not rise above 9?? percent or five?? percent. (couldn't hear it clearly but it's the conclusion that mattered.)

"Within five years I was trading interest rates at 17 percent." :blink:

His stuff on the efforts that will be required to support the dollar and where he expects the residential mortgage market to fail first are what many bears are saying. But this guy is an insider. Great stuff.

NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.

Anyone note the Investor's Intelligence numbers?

From Schaeffer's site:

http://www.schaeffer...s/inv_intel.asp

47.2% bulls
29.2% bears

These guys are almost comical. Does anyone even listen to them? The only reason I can think of is they're all counting on the big war really they're certain will happen. I just hope I can convince my relatives to get the hell out of the market before it collapses....

Here is certain proof that we are in a depression:

What grimmer portent could one imagine? Well, OK. Maybe a reunion of Iron Butterfly or The Captain and Tennille.
