Lehman concluded as Fraud

There ought to be prosecution coming.  Demand it.   This is not idle ranting, this is called re-instilling contract law, SEC regulation and enforcement, and an investing environment that propels the best and brightest to higher grounds.

POST (Primary Over Simplication Theory)

I have posted a new POST

You could study this for a lifetime, read many books, or you can get it here in 30 seconds.

The eggheads have no idea what is going on, especially when it comes to the most important thing in our solar system, the Sun.
The sun is the source of all energy, without it, there will be no life.   With too much of it, same effect.

Sunspots are important, they are massive releases of energy.   Lots of sunspots does not make the earth warmer, it makes it cooler because it produces more clouds, which then reject heat from the planet.  There are more effects than just this though.

There is a pretty good chance that what we are really facing IS NOT global warming, but global cooling, ushered in by a potential new era of lots of sunspots.   However, that may not be in the near future.  And there might be some BIG changes in the meantime, waiting for the next cooling/motivating cycle.

A large sunspot storm could cause massive damage to Human's infrastructure.  Hundreds of billions in damage, maybe more.  But we can't spend our time and emotional energy worrying about such things.

Hot drought times (like recently) tends to head humanity toward socialism, communism, decadence, and fanaticism, as it has done in 26 previous time in the last 26  100 year cycles.  Sharp turns to the left, in and effort to "help" the economic situation pushed forward by various forms of regimentation.   Social insurance of many forms comes into being.  My main source for this information was written in 1983.  It is out of print, but contact me if you want to try to get a copy and I will help if I can.

The cycles go like this:

Hot Dry
Cold Dry
Cold Wet
Warm Wet

Each has distinct characteristics that repeat themselves again and again.

But my 30 seconds are up, and in keeping with the hot dry that we are transitioning from, I am going to party at "Fight Night".

Chart of Charts IS BACK!!

Not much to say, the world is bullish, until it isn't.  Black Swans don't float in, they are delivered on a cruise missile on the weekends or holiday.  

Fear Factor, Candles are setting up for a drop, bond article

And in another sign of things to come....
Governments sell off their infrastructure to hedge funds in order to pay their bills. How will you like your sewer rates being set, manipulated, bribed, and rampaged by a hedge fund? They will get you coming and going.....

Blow off top? Maybe thats enough, awooooo, Werewolves of London

Check the LME warehouse levels of various commodities (metals)

Gold Silver, Platinum down WHILST Dollar is UP!

The broken clock continues but with a new twist.

"Gold and Oil are both down despite the dollar being down"

Same for Silver and Platinum

I did not bet silver short last night (well only once and got stopped between the 50 and 61 Fib), did not re-bet based on expected strength in the Euro after busting out of its PRS133 Channel.

Very Interesting

Charts and rants

Charts and rants...a great Friday morn' to ya!

There have been house fires occuring 1 or 3 a week in Oahu.   No one has expressed a theory on this yet.....hmmmm.   Overcrowding perchance?  Overburdened perchance? Sign of things to come.

In China, 11 rare Tigers, only 300 left in the world die of starvation--no money to buy food. Shouldn't they have donated these tigers to somewhere else? They were feeding them only chicken bones (not meat). What is the extent of human pride in keeping these a zookeeper, being willing to kill a rare and endangered species rather than saying....sorry we can't afford them, can you take care of the tigers for us.

The animals are going "animal"

Lifted from GMAK lifted from SOH lifted from......

EURO, bearish USD, Bullish US equities, Bullish PM

Silly Talk --"Bear must get going"

I have ranted on this several times.

Bears cannot "get going".   It is an absurd concept.   Does anyone in their right mind think that you can make the market drop by shorting it?    EXACTLY the opposite.   

Bears need to act like Aikidoists. Hands down. 

Comment below is from a favorite blog, but I disagree.

Over 50% of the rise from March lows (saying this without substantiation since at one point it was 80% and recent rally was 63% futures) was futures induced gap ups.

A Rant, and long overdue

DavidDT did a nice rant tonight on his fine blog, check the blog roll.  And it inspired mine.

Shenanigans will continue

Just like the "outlawing" of short sales on some financial stocks (like 400 if remember right) occurred during the 2008 shenanigans, similar things will occur again. It's not just that shorts were outlawed, it is the deceptive nature in which the true rules regarding the "outlaw" were complicity disguised and opaqued (that's now a verb if it wasn't before). I can explain more if anyone interested, but for now lets just make that statement.

US Gov does not want people converting to other currencies and putting money offshore where it takes more effort for them to slice off a chunk for themselves.

This story is one of the effects/results/foreboding ideas.

Interesting Charts and a New Bond Fund to Follow

I like the Earthquake Gadget i found for my google desktop. However, now that CNN is pimping out the Earthquake conspiracy theory...I think I will leave that line of thought. They are stating how a recent 4.4 quake in Big Island Hawaii is another Bizarre quake.

Banks and IYT rocketing up today

FF and original thoughts

The DWC is definitely breaking to new highs.

At the same time Fear Factor is repelling by it's upper channel line. This is very bearish.

This ain't going to be easy....we are going to breakout or breakdown.

I am thinking large bearish bets, extremely liquid, and ready to cover.

Picture Your Stop as a German Shepherd

Stops  can really suck when the market makers are whipping the market around, ramping futures overnight like a son-a-gun doing God's work.  

But those things happen.   I just read a guy's blog who blew up 90% of his account with an option position that went against him, not using a stop.  I have certainly lost 100% on some options my March puts on SPY--but also not betting the farm....somehow I think those 80's just ain't gonna pay off....its not actually even worth the trade cost to cash them in.

I keep hearing from people that dogs will not guard property, only people (their pack).   Some people don't know jack, every time you hear a cliche, especially a financial one, think about it as deception.

Check the video

Think about your stop as the object this German Shepherd Dog is protecting, and right behind that is your money.   Visualize this -- the GSD is not easily deceived, just as your stop...picked before you entered the trade, was based on sound judgment...well at least based on a real reason, not the heat of the moment, will also not be deceived.   You can also enter the same trade again, don't sweat it.

Did you make it this far?  That dog's name is Bear, he has earned a Schutzhund 3 ranking, that's like a blackbelt.  He is the father dog of my two German Shepherds.  Pretty cool, eh? 

Futures overnight moves accounting for 63% of the recent move up

The G-Team is perhaps trying to be a little more discreet in this ramp job. On the run from March, I read that 80% of the increases were ramped on the weekends. This last little bear crushing run up was created 63% by futures and gaps up. Gaps are way more prevalent than they used to be. Blame it on the G-Team or on Globalization?

See table below and convince yourself

Silver short, how many times can I short this and get stopped?

The Squid now sucking blood from your State Pension Fund

Comments please.

The Squid goes after any blood that is still warm.

We all know that Governmental Pension funds are in trouble of their own.   After all the S&P has gone nowhere for a decade.   Their planning is usually based on 7% to 10% growth using a blend of 80% equities and 20% bonds, or something similar.

But when I see newspaper articles how some of the large schools like Princeton or Kamehameha Schools, for instance, dropped the value of their entire portfolio (measured in many Billions), by 30% or 40%, you know there is trouble.   They were already "behind", now it is worse. 

Now States are started to use leverage to try to get back on track, and investment advisers are recommending leverage as a "free lunch" that States ought to take advantage of.
We all know there is no prosecution coming.  Making statements like "leverage is a free lunch" should be punished just for absurdity.  Check out:
Which is reference from a blurb I did--

After the brokers and banks lent like drunken sailors, pocketing fees and then giving away the spoils to the executives, now they want to have State Pension funds back the banks.

This would probably be another way for the Banksters, and let me coin, Brokesters (cause they broke everyone else) to suck more money from honest working people.

And it would be a good ring through the nose of the States, allowing the Federally controlled banking system to lengthen their whip, should any impetuous states like Texas start talking about
seceding from the union

If any State starts acting out, the Feds could pull some tricks like raising their banks reserve requirements or some other trick to force them into bankruptcy, destroying 90% of the wealth, and taking down the State retirement fund with it.   This would enrage the population, but they would also be really hurt, enough so that they may crawl back so they have at least enough to live, it would make the population mad at their State government for bringing this demise on them.

And the bank could be sold to some completely independent bank like Goldman, for 10% on the dollar.

I rest my case.

Fear Factor and dejavu Matrix style

Notes on the chart

PRS-133 Plays out AGAIN!

The semi-famous PRS 133% channel lines have played out again, almost to a pip.

Amazing.   The PRS-133 is now my default channel line in thinkorswim trading/charting program.

Fear Factor update and Chart of Charts Commentary

Friday was a strong breadth day.   The FF factor jumped up (which is actually bullish for stock prices).
I have long futures on ES, but ready to throw them under the bus at the drop of a hat.

CHART of CHARTS---suffice it to say, it's fully bullish. The 5, 10, 20 DMA all bullish, and strongly so. Bullish for an unusually long time period now.

Maybe I can produce the chart during the week, no time tonight. But keep in mind, over half of all the charts are "ready to do something", ready to breakout into bullish or bearish patterns. That's alot of volatility potential!

Good resource for visualizations of data, extensive!

 Thebelow is one of the links....if you see some snazzy looking data charted up in the near future, that might be the ticket that made it possible.  HTML code for custom charts.

Earthquakes and Moons, Keep an Eye Out for March 15, and April 1

Like this eclectic mix of perspectives?   Sign up as follower, its free, and then new posts will automatically show up in your reader (Google reader, blogger aggregator, etc)

This earthquake stuff is interesting.
Haiti happened on the Eclipse
Chile on the full moon.

Full or no moon means the sun, moon, and earth are all in aline.   That changes the gravitational forces.  

The average number of 4+ earthquakes since around 1980 is 240 per week.  

We are in a quiet zone right now.

Mass human hysteria can be a kicker to the Global mass psychosis that Daneric has so aptly named.  And don't even get me going on sunspots.....the experts have no idea what they are doing, or at least if they do, they are good at keeping secrets.  

Total market knocking it's head against the 161 Fib

The 161 Fib Stopped this market before, maybe this will be a double top.  However, market breadth (percent of issues advancing was like 11 to 13 Adv/Dec) That is scary strong if you are a bear.

Fear Factor - flyaway gap

VIX directly affects my "Fear Factor".  Vix did a gap down, and FF did a gap up.  

Went short into the weekend, Euro is up, meaning dollar is down, and maybe that "one way street correlation" means equities up.   Futures will tell us something shortly.

However, I do anticipate at least a temporary 1 to 3 days down.  But ready to exit positions quickly also. 

Bears have thrown in the towel (and bonus AUD FX Chart)

Bears have thrown in the towel.

Only 36,000 Us citizens lost their jobs, and that was represented as "reeeeeally good".

This is a broken clock.   Bad means good, High debts mean stimulate more to encourage growth so debt can be absorbed.

All fiat currency is at risk, timing is the only decision.

But their are two sides to every trade. I haven't really followed the AUD pairs much, so i don't know how they react to classic patterns like HS IHS. I do know that EUR/USD frequently throws the HS and IHS under the just ignores them 90% of the time.

If you are short AUD, as always you should keep that tightly reined in with a stop.
