Diane Garnick--she schooled them hard--said there are far more shorting opportunities because we are headed for a really bad recession.

Garnick said that we are experiencing the first bank run that is happening electronically. because cp is so tight and libor so high companies are taking their credit lines and holding it on their balance sheets. they are not saying my stock is cheap--let's buy back stock.

You can make the same argument that the bears have 2 shots to take this down, but they couldn't.

When the cycles say up, and the market goes down, that's bad. Real bad. It's what I call by the technical term- FAILURE

Doc,
Are you still sticking with this?

Well, I probably should have said "could" not "would". I don't know what WILL happen, only what I think will happen. The two aren't necessarily the same. :P

But that chart says we should have gotten a 30% rally.

Pattern looks pretty darn close to me. Chillingly so.

OK, dogsie, my man! I rigged it. Question 3 and the number of responses is the joke.

A little obscure, I know. :lol:

RBC buying back 20 million shares announced today, the same day the Canuck banks are now allowed, as of today, to Mark to Make Believe instead of Mark to Market... :blink:
Anthony caused pearls to be dissolved in wine to drink the health of Cleopatra; Sir Richard Whittington was as foolishly magnificent in an entertainment to King Henry V; and Sir Thomas Gresham drank a diamond, dissolved in wine, to the health of Queen Elizabeth, when she opened the Royal Exchange; but the breakfast of this roguish Dutchman was as splendid as either. He had an advantage, too, over his wasteful predecessors: their gems did not improve the taste or the wholesomeness of their wine, while his tulip was quite delicious with his red herring.here

Wasn't she the first woman floor trader on nyse?  She was the first woman something on fraud street.

First woman to buy a seat on the NYSE. Yup, she's been dere and done dat, recently a bank examiner somewhere in New York.

She's advocating sending Treasury teams thru each banks books and taking pre-emptive measures against the exposive turds on the books and making law the netting out of all derivatives that can be and introducing regulation on any new ones. Protection only if there is an underlying position to protect.
