"Dead Cat Bounce... 24 Aug. market move"

the 531 point decline on Friday will not be followed immediately by further declines... attributed to the emerging markets contraction & China's economy and Yuan crisis...As the new reserve currency added to the IMF basket of fiat monies problem that has been delayed until 2016...because it has a Gold component not yet required by the existing system


the PPT will go into overdrive so that a half-way stable equity market results... so that the mid Sept. rate hike can be implemented by the Fed-Treasury partnership

beware my friends

the silence on it is kind of disconcerting???

oh well, those who have no money can't really lose much money I guess...


What can they say?

"I knew it was coming, but I don't know what to do, so I will just have to hope I will be able to weather the storm".

Many Americans are not individually invested in the stock market. They know a drop is bad, but they don't really know how that translates in their lives.

A shopper knows a dozen eggs that used to cost 99 cents, now costs over three dollars.

Two days ago I bought a dozen eggs for 99 cents.

It's true that any big drop is an excellent buying opportunity.

Question is, what happens Monday?

....Why Raise Rates Now?

The US Federal Reserve is playing with the idea of raising interest rates, possibly as early as September this year. After a six-year period of virtually zero interest rates...


 



because... being in the USAs world-reserve-currency role. AND being the first to raise rates...
will automatically cause Trillion$ of regulated, sovereign Bond & Treasury Issues to be snapped up by regulations of the Corporations or Municipalities governing their treasury holdings....
by laws, mutual funds, cities/towns/ governments/ corporations must procure the best rate possible of the best rated bond available ... (fiduciary duties are explicit, not like the vague allowances of hedge fund managers)


with the whole G-20/Industrialized world switching to USA Treasuries from the degraded EU paper,
(and any other paper from Germany-India-Russia or whatever)
that will be a SUPER massive swap of money...

can we think in terms of ~ 10 Trillion in wealth being deposited into the USA treasury with the FED immediately presenting the $4Trillion they have on their balance sheet for payment

ONLY the first and most prominent fiscal-financial powerhouse central bank could or will pull this off...
as other nations step up to deliver the increased interest rate, only then will there be any movement out of the best-of-best paper,,, it might take 6 months or more for all these entities to swap-out their present Aaa rated bonds for AAA required bonds & Treasuries from the USA


This scheme is another reason for the 'de-dollarization' policies of China+Russia & the BRICS in general ... because they figured it out years ago too.... currency wars are escalating now, huh




Why now?

The POTUS election?

The BRIC getting ahead?

I'm glad someone else besides me was watching the stock market on Friday! I'm usually one of the first to post about the stock market on ATS but I've been too busy with work lately to get on here!

I am not too concerned with this really. I put what little money I had into DNO which shorts oil. Basically as oil has gone down, this has gone up, perfectly.

Once oil bottoms out, sell everything I have in DNO and put it into USO the United States Oil fund which tracks crude after expenses. Oil cannot stay low forever. With the new deal with Iraq and all of the craziness in the middle east, now china, and possibly Russia, who DOESNT see world conflict somewhere on the horizon? And if Oil doesnt go back up when everything crashes (people will still need gas to get around and cheap plastic goods, maybe more now than ever), then Silver (SLV) will probably be a good tool to make some money in.

Things like Oil dont go down forever and time has told us repeatedly it is the first thing to increase when there is panic and conflict. Gas lines in the 70s, under a dollar gas in the 90s, and now about to be under $2 after being almost at $4 a few years ago. It will go back up again, and even with all of the advancements in renewables, it will still be awhile before we ever completely make that transition away from fossil fuels.

If the other scenario is true that OPEC countries are trying to kill of competition, then once they do rid the world of our producers, they will try to recover profits, and up goes Oil. I just dont see too many ways that you can go wrong with oil.

Does anyone else see any major flaws with my thinking?

I got a chance to meet Harry Dent back in the late 90's, and I got an autographed copy of The Roaring 2000's. Most of what he said came true, except the hiccup that happened post 911, which no one could have predicted. I think he has some sobering insight that should be considered.

There will be a crisis and the first phase of a Bear market started a year ago in the commodities. But that doesn't mean that everything will fall from now on (as you saw in the last 12 months). Correction and even crisis is healthy for the markets and shows that it follows the market laws. The last correction came because of the slowdown in emerging economies (Brasil, China, Russia, Turkey). And EU doesn't look as good as it should either. And Fed uncertainty whether the rates will rise in September or December was just oil on the fire (EM currencies were hit the hardest because of that).

From this point on I see major central banks in EM and ECB + BoJ to put more liqquidity into the markets. Fed will wait at least until December. The markets will bounce back some 15% but after that go into the money or inverse ETFs.

You Ask....



Why now?

The BRIC getting ahead?


 



Last weeks 5 day drama with the 1,000 point drop is not the 'whole ball of wax'... there is a lot more to come, probably in the September window

your question 'Why Now' is Premature... the symbolic timing on a particular target date is sure to make more sense than this August 17-21st stock market drop so far... there is the Agenda 30 announcement, the Pope addressing Congress, the Jewish 7th year thing (schemata?) wrap up of jade helm, blood-moon over middle east....

all of these are trigger dates
which will offer a better opportunity to ask 'why now?'

Makes sense.

A Fed rate hike is saying that the economy is recovered, so Agenda 30 is just the next thing to take care of us, like the Fed does.

And if the economy crashes that will be proof that we need to be more sustainable, hence Agenda 30 is even better.

Looks like a crash is in the works.

Unless the Pope, A30, and the Schemata are intended to be subliminal for the greater population, and to be associated with good news.

In that case the economy will be "saved" by the Fed.

Why is anyone surprised by this? We abandoned our gold standard, and the minute we did that our money became imaginary. And now for years, a bunch of sociopaths called financiers and bankers, have manipulated that imaginary money until the manipulation is on a global scale and has become so convoluted, they can no longer control it. So it will certainly come crashing down at some point. Good, it's a rotten corrupt system that impoverishes millions while it favors a miniscule group of individuals, most people are already so bad off they will hardly notice it. When it happens, we should reset the debt, jail ALL the financial criminals who put us here and start over. Iceland did exactly that, and they are doing better than all of the rest of Europe.

Well said and possible. I don't know why anyone is surprised either.

Looks like the last market affected is going down!

It's a clean sweep, guys. Hope y'all are holding some gold/silver to offset paper fiat losses.

THE FOLLOWING IS MY OPINION:
Based on the comments I am seeing, the bottom is in. Looks like i'll be a buyer this afternoon when futures open. and it's 8% not 10%. 10% would be SPX at 1920. if we do go there i'm a buyer as well. This "correction" was overdue. And what I like about these prices, is I saw buying into the yearly low that was made in Jan. Or feb? damn don't have my charts opened at the moment. But as soon as this settles I'll look to go back in on a short since institutions have been selling since Jan 2015. Been selling for the past 8 months. As for the fed raising rates, I doubt that'll happen now since we've declined 8% from ATHs. Another reason why I believe the bottom is in, apart from people on here looking for shelter lmao, is volume. Look at that volume on the daily chart for SPY on friday. Well over 300 million shares. Capitulation people! Some pros are considering this the start of a bear market. We'll find out soon enough.

2015 is the year of the Shemitah and it ends in September 11. It's doesn't matter if you don't believe in this religious stuff when other people do and make a run on the bank and the stock market. All jews will take thier money out of investment vehicles (including bitcoin) and put it back in on September 23. Watch the market rise as the US government tries to buoy the market but it's not going to be enough and stocks will hit their all time low by Sept 11.

I know I will be watching how China opens tonight on the hour until bedtime. I also think I will meet with my retirement specialist to move it to something safer for now (not that I have a lot invested, but its mine, damnit!). Once the bottom is reached I plan to invest heavily anticipating the next rise.
I've made enough plans for SHTF scenarios, so I'm not too worried about it (excluding EMP, that's a toughie).
