From the current PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) Newsletter:

When a Pennsylvania couple awoke to strange sounds in the night, they thought some pretty fierce winds were rattling their shutters. It was only a deer taking a bubble bath in their tub.

The deer burst through the fromt door, ran into the bathroom, managed to turn on the water in the tub, and knocked over a bottle of bubble bath. He then submerged himself in the frothy water.

State Game Commission officials arrived at the home with tranquilizers and a lot of laughter. The animal was taken outdoors and released. Except for a damaged front door, the only souvenir of the uninvited houseguest was a few hoof prints in the linoleum.

...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

Yesterday was painful for bears looking for some holiday cheer. The scam meisters were at it again. Oil, gold and the dollar are telling a different story.
In any case I'm sticking with the charts. I won't panick until the downtrend is broken. For me this will be when the red displaced moving average crosses above the blue sma. Could be painful but that's the line in the sand for me.

Careful with that Rich- The way Prophet calcs the displaced moving average is kind of arbitrary. They just pick of the last few days of the MA and repeat it. More traditional means of trend change recognition are more reliable.

Financial TV shows suffer hard times, too

The star power of Maria Bartiromo, Crapvision's best-known journalist, continues to fade. Ratings for Monday night's After Hours with Maria Bartiromo have sunk 42% since August, to just 117,000 viewers. That's 80% below what Rivera Live was pulling in for Crapvision in the time slot in November 2001, before Geraldo Rivera's departure to the Fox network. (Crapvision says ABC's Monday Night Football saps her audience.)

http://www.usatoday....-16-biztv_x.htm

What will they blame the declining ratings on when MNF ends?

Maybe they'll give Emma a show.

GC3G (Mar Gold) up 3 beans to $340.5 just off the morning high of $341
EU2H (Feb Euro) challenging $1.03 level.
January crude @ $30.10

This is causing much constipation on the street. I would not expect equities to rally for any length of time unless gold, euro and crude all reverse.

Did anyone see the interview on Crapvision this mawnin' w the economista entitled: "Soft Spot or Quagmire"?

aired about 8 am EST

what did he have to say? Only caught the lASSt few seconds, where he said "there's a lot of water that has yet to flow under the bridge between now and the end of the year".
Whereupon Mr "Underwear/I'm a NEWZ "Jockey" Haynes cut him off FUR a word FURom the sponsors.

HRFF hASS been sayin FUR yearz and yearz to "keep your eye on the DOLLAR" (and Japan).

One of Inger's themes in his hotline, which HRFF is debatin' about renewin', over the pASSt few months/weeks has been the "stability of the dollar" as a bedrock/foundation FUR/pillar of this rally, which Inger, at one point, labeled the advent of a new bull mkt.

Well, we'll c just how "stable" it is, WON'T we?
"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

"What about your replacements? the Children. What do we tell them when the whole thing caves in?" HyperTiger
