Welcome to B4 the Bell. Where else can you fatten your wallet, discuss religion and politics without the sound of smashing glass and enjoy the purveyors of gloom from afar. It sure as hell ain't Thanksgiving at the inlaws after a quart of Wild Turkey. :lol:

Uncle Buck feeling a little better as the Yen drops some. Hmm Nikkei down 270 ,might have something to do with that not to mention the Japanese major miss on GDP. Who woulda thunk it? Well I thunk it. The global circle jerk is coming to a halt. The coming backup in China will be the real shocker to most. The shocked will likely be the commod longs (oil and PMs temporaraily excluded) once the funds, aka gaint rats, aim for a door suitable for one small rodent Not too hard to see it coming if you think outside the pundits and analcysts tiny little box they store the one shared brain cell in.

Uncle Earl still solidly above $45. Light up a few Mosques and we could be at $50 in a heartbeat.

The mighty Dell has seen a future so bright they gotta wear shades. Hey idiots - quit staring at the sun. Lets' see is Dell's dividend higher than GE? Must be all that future share appreciation you have to count on to own a boring appliance maker.

Watch the PPI.

A bad number could spook the bonds and send the HGX and the financials into a freefall............

Debt and Delusion

Sweet article from Robert Blumen on the alchemy of our current hedgehog 'financial economy'. Derivatives, carry trade, inflation containment to financial assets. Cool. B)

Yet, as the fire hose of government bond issuances has flooded international capital markets with debt issues, interest rates have not risen much, are now lower than in the 70s (a time of less borrowing), and for the last year have been at or near generational lows.  It is dubious to maintain that the gargantuan volumes of bond purchases in recent years could have been funded out of savings when the  US personal savings rate has also dropped to long-term lows.

This anomaly has not attracted much attention or investigation.  Instead, most anal cysts now find this state of affairs to be utterly normal. An alleged quote attributed to Vice President Dick Cheney that "deficits donít matter" perfectly summarizes the prevailing attitude.[8]  Notes Warburton, "the incongruity of the massive accumulation of government and corporate debt with a low inflation environment no longer provokes much curiosity, even among professionals."[9]; and, "a stratospheric stock market has become accepted as the normal state of affairs, requiring no special explanation."[

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Google Inc. on Friday said an interview with its founders in the latest Playboy magazine issue may violate U.S. securities rules governing the Internet company's $3.3 billion pending initial public offering.


Big mouths

Yet another amateurish cock-up, after the unregistered shares (i.e. stock watering) fiasco.

Google's ham-handed stock sale is about to dump a loaded bedpan onto the wounded NazTrash 'market.'

BUTT(_)_) ...

The trade gap widened by a surprising 19.1 percent to a record $55.8 billion, marking the largest one-month percentage worsening of the trade gap since February 1999. In dollar terms, the widening of the trade deficit was a record.

Wall Street had forecast the deficit would widen slightly to $46.9 billion from the initial May estimate of $46.0 billion.


Now we see how Crude Earl is gobbling a hole in the nation's finances.

They can jigger the PPI, but they can't hide the need to borrow close to $2 billion a day.

This ship is going down ...

PPI number is a lie. Gold up. Trade defecit at off-the-charts highs. US exports have crashed...and the dollar now needs to crash to kick start exports - which will raise the price of imports in real terms - causing inflationary pressure and locking us into STAGFLATION.

If there was ever a time for "event risk" going into a Friday...we've got Friday the 13th, with the Olympic terror risk - combined with a volatile situation in Iraq...who wants to be long equities going into the weekend?

Michigan Consumer Confidence lie will not be bought.

We shall see

You tell 'em, Plunger.

That's dead-on accurate.

And you won't hear it from the Clowns of Crapvision, either.

Perfect timing by King George to float the concept of a consumption tax to replace income taxes.

They're giving $5,000 rebates in Michigan if you buy a new Buick...which has got to cost GM at least $3000 to go through the motions of unloading inventory to keep the pension beast fed.

Taxing consumption would be the equivalent of slamming on the breaks at the end of the front straight heading into "turn-one" at the Indy 500.

Momentum meets brick wall.

Brick wall wins.

Film at eleven.
