The rate on the 1 year Treasury has dropped 37 bps in a week. That's a bit absurd. Is it a reviersal, or just a violent bear market reaction to the previous increase of 140 bps?

I think yields go sideways to down for a few weeks. (long term bonds).
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.

TE,

I would like someone like you to look after my money, you have integrity and your "peeps" welfare at heart...very rare in this day and age.


Kudos to you.

Infact I am, seriously considering getting someone to manage my money...someone with a bearish perspective of course..lol

Or I might just put it all into Gold and Silver and leave it in the bottom drawer.

Tanks BB. I appreciate you stating that. I live for my peeps. They feed my family and I work hard for them. Find someone who is open minded to the point that they are willing to tell you that the market could go down BEFORE you ask his opinion. Only then will you have found someone who can help you.

You Sir, are smarter then the average broker, as most here are. Not all ,but most.

Prince/ When you were mine lyrics. Great song stoolies.

When you were mine
I gave you all of my money
Time after time
You done me wrong
It was just like a dream
You let all my friends come over and meet
And you were so strange
You didnít have the decency to change the sheets

Oh girl, when you were mine
I used to let you wear all my clothes
You were so fine (so fine)
Maybe thatís the reason
That it hurt me so

I know (I know)
That youíre going with another guy
I donít care (donít care)
Cuz I love u, baby, thatís no lie
I love you more than I did
When you were mine

When you were mine
You were kinda sorta my best friend
So I was blind (so blind)
I let you fool around
I never cared (didnít care)
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleeping inbetween the two of us

I know (I know)
That youíre going with another guy
I donít care (donít care)
Cuz I love you, baby, thatís no lie
I love you more than I did
When you were mine

When you were mine
U were all I ever wanted to do
Now I spend my time
Following him whenever heís with you

I know (I know)
That youíre going with another guy
I donít care (donít care)
Cuz I love you, baby, thatís no lie
I love you more than I did
When you were mine

When you were mine, yeah, oh no
Love you, baby
Love you, baby
When you were mine

For those who don't poke around much at Asia Times, their roving reporter Pepe Escobar has been on a trek around the US for awhile filing reports and observations..... man-on-the-street stuff mixed with politics, polls and statistics.

The American Dream
(mucking about on Route 66)

A cool car, wide-open spaces and a road that goes on forever: that's the quintessential American experience, the preeminent American symbol of freedom. Great conversations, a sense of adventure, the constant zooming in and out of the naturally majestic to the wonderfully tacky: this is the way to feel real America's pulse - certainly much more fulfilling than listening to think-tanks, those institutions where a handful of ideologues pose as "thinkers" and, through corporate donations, acquire the kind of respectability that allows corporate media to quote them as somewhat knowledgeable about something.

The House Always Wins
(mucking about in Vegas)

Dan the Fat Cat, never a man to spurn a first-growth Bordeaux at a four-digit price at the Renoir restaurant in the Mirage, is nevertheless worried: "Last year we had to borrow something like $540 billion from Europe, Japan and China. We became a debtor nation in the late 1980s. Now our debt abroad is something like $3 trillion. It will be double before 2010. Some people say that when the dollar hits new lows, Americans will buy less and less imports. That's bull. The way I see it, we are indebted to the house. And the house one day will come to collect. The house is now a bunch of countries. They hold our debt paper, they collect interest on our Treasury bonds and private bank loans. We may be a very wealthy nation, but we can't keep spending what we don't have and borrowing money forever. One of these days America will lose control of its destiny."

Looks like 990 must have been jet-lagged from his long weekend vacation trip -- but he's back, and wide awake, and in action, right now. Early. :o
Of course I'm caustic!

Aussiebear,

Hello, or I guess G'day.

You said: ...large digital readout.... You'd think with an ageing population a manufacturer would have seen an opportunity...

Yep! Couldn't agree more. Where is Casio or Timex when you need them?

Opened a bank account at Wells Fargo today:

Big signs in the Lobby advertising "Smart Loans".
"What could that mean," I wondered. . .
The smaller print said 3.75% interest and "interest only, OR, pay more to reduce your principle more!"

"reduce your principle MORE" :o

Then when the "clerk" was filling out our paperwork, she asked if we wanted credit cards "No annual fee!"

"No" we said, spurning any more additional credit.

"How much balance do you carry?" she asked sympathetically, totally misreading our reluctance.

"None." and her jaw literally dropped, "None?!?!?"
