If you haven't visited Yobob's turf in a while, there's an interesting thread going there. http://www.capitalst...=10&t=155&st=0

Since it seems to be a slow night in Stoolville, I've posted something about the McDonald's case that you might find will NOT restore your faith in the way the media present things.
Of course I'm caustic!

Wyndysrf:

HRFF was BORED this nite, having just finished dinner (he had home fries, which, together w mac and cheese is, allegedly, what fueled NAPOLEON FUR many of his yearz) and picked up the Modern Library's GREAT CLASSICAL MYTHS. The book fell open at the marker to:

"Mercury Again Warns Aneas" from Vergil's Aeneid, Book 4. 554-570 (Humphries)

How does the pASSage "end"? You'd be amuzed? in light of your chosen theme this evening:

"Shove off, be gone! A shifty, fickle object
"Is woman, always."
"The sphinx set riddles for people which they could not solve and the sphinx devoured them." Russian poet Ilia Ehrenberg reflecting years later upon the debacle of the Bolshevik Revolution and civil war

"In any case, experience shows people are unlikely to change their ways without a cataclysm of existential proportions" Meinhard Meigel, German economist and demography expert on his prophecy of a Wagnerian abyss of social and economic chaos

"We believe that here is no easy way out of this mess, and that the chance of a benign outcome, while hopefully possible, is quite low." Comstock Partners 3-17-2005

"Not without a shudder may the human hand reach into the mysterious urn of destiny." Junk email promoting the sale of Valium, Viagra, Soma and Cialis. Of course, we AMERICANS need not WORRY about such CLAPTRAP!!!

"The trouble about myths, or lies, is that those who foster them are stuck with them." Edward Crankshaw

"I don't buy the idea that a crash will come without warning. There are always warnings. All crashes have certain common technical preconditions." Doc (snorjt)

"YOU look IMPORTANT. Are you important, or just....WEIRD?"
"Bob I am" at a political gathering, to HRFF, 9-29-04

"Are YOU C.I.A.???"
"No, I'm not "CIA"."
"Well, you sure LOOK LIKE you're C.I.A.!!!"

Lead singer of the rock band KISS to HRFF at a luggage carousel at SeaTac airport circa 1996

"Unlike you, I use words people can understand." Doc

"America at the moment, with its faith-based currency, faith-based economy and faith-based government, might be a heaven for those who love faith, but it's a hell for those of us that respect evidence." The Daily (W?)Reckoning, circa 9-17-04

"What should be clear at this point is that even huge fiscal stimulus and unprecedented financial excess are incapable of fostering a sound and self-sustaining economic expansion. The paramount issue, today and going forward, is the deeply maladjusted U.S. economy and its increasing unresponsiveness to even enormous yet misdirected financial stimulus. Both the Financial Sphere and Economic Sphere are severely maladjusted." Doug Noland's Credit Bubble Bulletin, Aug 24 '04

"U.S. dollar purchasing power relies almost entirely on the difference between interest rates in Japan and the higher rates in the United States." Warren Pollock, Prudent Bear essay circa 9-04

Haven't much time to go over any numbers. A rumor today in the Chicago future pits that Al Green was getting set to resign. Can you beleive it? It would be too sweet so therefore it is more than likely just a rumor. The heat is on however so come Wednesday I'm expecting the FEED to reassert itself. The 3rd leg down would also be very sweet but I'll beleive it when I see it and I wouldn't make much of anything today. I still think money is just sloshing around and to read much more into it than that is sometimes a waste. I seriously doubt we see any grand movement during this season of patriotic consumption and unrelenting narcissicism. Incidentally it was rumored for quite a while in this tinsel town that Billy Boob and Angelina were heroin dopers in love. Just one more parallel to Wall Struck. Great column tonight Marky. One might consider just how much of the really hard stuff these big gamers are doing afterhours. Coke,speed,Jack Daniels and heroin are all contributing influences I'm sure. And lots of pot to take the edge off. Wherever there are degenerates posing as responsibles these stimulants are sure to be close behind. The Emperor rarely wears Clothes anymore and is hiding that dime bag of bad toot half way up his rectum so none of the courtiers can snatch it.

fokker
have no fear about getting your schmekel juice collected by some earinged pirced masccarrad scorceress who looks like a distant neice of Count Dreckula-- by her placing hands on you and you surviving iyou become the virological beneficiary insuring you of great fuuture health--permit me to explain
when i lived in Chicago years ago i used to frequent a downtown restaurant chain by the name of pixley & ehlers--the place was attended by charecters who all looked like they were recent escapees from a philipino leprosarium--(in those days they werent referred to as hansen's diseased)--
the stools had heights paralleling those of a small mountain range,making eating lunch or breakfast there almost unbearably painful involuntary circus act, the reason being that they didnt want loiterers. why?

Ill tell you--a typical breakfast was comprised of a dozen eggs ,17 slices of toast a half a bushel of cottage fries all washe ddown with many refills of coffee and all for a farhting or two--or so it seemed--so if you were to vegetate there parking your toches for longer than was commercially viable they would go broke--the uncomfortable stools were augmented with the above mentioned personnel--everyone seemed to have sores freshly opened ,scabrous tissue peeling from evry exposed portion of skin--shmorkat hung dribbling from every nostril glistening in the artificial light ,not a handkerchief in sight ;sniffling ,choking and soft poetic romantic tubercular coughing,all in chorus handling the food with an aplomb that a sanitation worker could envy--
i could go on and on with this portrait of urban pastoral but its getting late so, to make the point--by having the guts to stay and eat at that place i must have developed antibodies against every known earthly disease, and am now so immunologically well equipped, that paying a visit to fort dietrich clasped in chains wouldnt frighten me--and the same should go for you--she is a blessing in disguise a ,walking two legged vaccination ;a human prophylactic,a gothic clara barton--
and remember the adage'' that which doesnt kill me will make me stronger?????? BEARDRECH :ph34r: GIF

The churn and burn till Christmas game is not looking good. Neither is the Airline industry, auto industry, house industry, health care, or the state budget industry. The propaganda industry will soon start to suffer... Once the Psychology which is dependant on the "prop"agenda industry suffers, it'll be over... Sometime next year... Or Friday?

Now "over" is yucky thought. but tears of joy for others...

% chance that wall street will be finished when it's "over" = 40%

% chance that "over" will be worse than Hypertiger's worst nightmare = 10%

The FED won't be over though, The Fractional reserve principal is used to make everyone a "sucker".
"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money (at the request of the consumer) we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." --Robert H. Hemphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank,1938...

Maybe today signified nothing. Maybe Inger is correct in saying the market is positioning itself well for FURther advance.
Why would they let it come unstuck NOW after all that efFURt of the pASSt six weeks? RIGHT beFUR their war is about to get going - the nitely newz is now treating it like a done deal, even reporting on a nascent anti-war movement and noting it took "five years of body bags" from the lASSt one beFUR it amounted to anything, politically.
Of course, we don't have to worry about years of body bags THIS time - we're going to WIN and PDQ, too, by cracky!
Why there's even talk they may wait until MARCH to launch it. Everything's positioned FUR it, already. SadDAMned already encircled by a ring of steel.
If they wait until March they have time to bring it back if it tanks, here, wot?
But SNOT if they go in January!
SowhatzitgonnaBEE?
It's (the war's) goin' down....FURshurrrrrrre. Stocks, too!
They want that BUFFER against a sharp selloff when the cannons roar.

Tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands THERE won't be alive a year from now. It's all so crazy.
But men won't, above all else, be deterred from waging war.
If history teaches anything it teaches THAT.

Beardrech, you kill me! You should write for Readers Digest.

I'll lay any one of the New Jersey Transit trains from Trenton to NYC against your Chicago restaurant any day for title of Germ Heaven. Sat in my seat with my feet up the entire way one trip because urine was flowing down both side edges of the car. I'd wait hours just to take Amtrak instead of NJT.

for torah man, from yesterday:

core positions:
BEARX 25%
EPP
EWH
GBGLF

long hedges:
CPHD
NWN
HD
AMAT

It is quite possible that the last minute drop into the close was designed to make people cough up their longs before a run-up. On the other hand, there is always the gap and crap into the abyss to look out for.

I'm trying to think of my accounts as mini-hedge funds, but it's a lot of work. :blink:

Warning: I have no idea what I'm doing. :grin:

The Nasdaq 5-day ARMS is at a record high of 13.50.

Just an illustration of what Mark means. I can't get a chart of Bretz TRIN-5 for the NASDAQ directly, but keep in mind that it is simply equal to 5 times the 5-day MA:

I would like to emphasize, though, that this is a short-term trading indicator. Large values imply a short-term bounce - but not necessarily a huge rally. Just look at the above charts.

From optioninvestor.com: We saw some impressively high TRIN and TRINQ readings, with the TRINQ (Nasdaq Short term trading or "Arms" index) in particular going... nuts at 2:30 in the afternoon. By nuts, I mean printing successive candles 1 point long for longer than an hour, leading some to conclude that the data was bad, while others attributed the strange breadth to excessive volume in a small number of stocks. In any event, I had never before seen the tick- by-tick swings that the TRINQ printed today. This volatility aside, traders should be asking whether these huge TRIN and TRINQ readings are calling for at least a short term bounce. The quick answer is "yes", and predicting these bounces tends to be what the Arms Index does best. However, it's a very sensitive indicator, and as we saw at the beginning of the October rally, back when it was still a "bounce", the TRINQ got down to below . 20 and stayed there for days. As I pointed out then, it was telling us that a reversal was on its way shortly, or that it was signally a monster move. Well, we got the latter. If you're measuring little wavelets and a tsunami is building, you'll see aberrant data that violates the average range for an aberrant period of time- the extreme readings just seem to go on and on. Such is the case with extreme Arms readings. Today's action tells me to stay close on the stops- trailing stops on bearish positions will work best here. If price continues to decline, fine. If it reverses, hasta la vista.


Beardrech- I'd call it Dickensian imagery for its brilliance and detail, but I could never stand Dickens, and your writing I love. Indeed, plunging one into a microbiological bouillabaise is a longer term gift, shorter term recoil. I was hoping for a nubile Nurse Nelly to take her samples and leave me more interesting stories to share with the Stoolies, but alas, they sent a pierced and dyed marauder from the apocalypse. With any luck, I'll pass the test and get the policy. If not, well, maybe it'll win the Icelandic Lager competition. Dr. B., got an entry form for me?

...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
