Something just looks fishy about this move.  Boyz will close it green with a giant shank.

So be careful out there!.

do you mean crank
shank is to take it lower

Using the term (albeit) a bit too loosely, only from the perspective of golf, as in a veer at a severe angle (from our present trajectory).

Averaged in about 1534 now :mellow: Ready for the woodshed just in case.

From the rate cuts are not always bullish department.

The old saying "Don't fight the Fed" is not backed by facts. Periods of rising rates combined with background of modest inflationary expectations when rates are rising from low levels, are more bullish for stocks than periods when rates are deeply cut from higher interest levels combined with background of higher inflationary expectations.

When rates are cut to pump more liquidity(debt) into the system, prices of stocks decline. In fact, inflationary expectations appear to be just as important.

So let me get this straight.
The rate cut actually will help CRUSH housing instead of save?
Lower rates = lower dollar.
Lower dollar = selling in bonds.
Selling in bonds = Higher Rates
Higher Rates = Crush the housing Market. :o
Stop the Madness

Just like the worst case scenario: Lower s/t and higher l/t rates. And then foreigners sell ing off US$ holdings leaving the Fed to prop the markets all by themselves creating even more debt on debt.

I am waiting on higher long term rates to lock in some more CD's.I think I got a lucky break on some I already bought.I locked in 2 CD's at 6% for 5 years a few weeks back....

The good thing is that if yields rocket up,the CD's I bought only have a 3 month interest penalty if I dont hold till maturity.If I had to,I could take the small hit and relock in much higher if yields permit. :)

As for the market,want in on some QID.But afraid to hit the buy button :mellow: (which means we are about to drop like a rock :o )

Nothing

The market is dead. It suffers from very low pressure, no volume, that will prove to be fatal to patient already suffering from sclerosis.

So here is my CRASH CALL.

I've been saying for a very long time that a weaker US economy would lead to higher bond yields as the FCBs flee US paper. Looks like they aren't waiting for the economy to weaken all that much. They're front running.
