And over at FoxNews, market analysts are fighting over the cause of the stock market drops. Half say it's abortion, and the other half say it's gay marriage.

First update shows .5% on the shanghai composite, second 1%. It's a good start.





Nikkei mirrors this.



It seems time may have been bought. Hope it holds the remainder of the trading day.

Or maybe...

UPDATE:



Sweet volatility.

I'm guessing 2k would be the end result, but how long to get there?

With Corps having less money for stock buybacks and the end of QE maybe the stock market will settle to reflect the real economy.

Indeed.

The Shemitah is only getting warmed up.

I'm waiting to buy up stock in Silver Wheaton while it's low and has a bullish looking future, but they're dealing with a class-action lawsuit in Canada, so waiting for the verdict on that before jumping on what's otherwise a steal.

This is a bad time for some, but it can also be a great time to get some long-term investments secured.

Paul Singer (the vulture) and Soros must be wringing their claws.

Starring at the asian markets... everything went to sh*t today, but then slowly recovered. Then it seems like all trading was paused for an hour, and then it suddenly began to rise in points sharply.

I guess they halted trading for a brief moment huh.

That's how they do it with their market. There's an inter-day break. It tripped me up as well the first time I saw it.

It's settled just over 3k for now.

China (Shanghai) down 1.3%. I guess slashing rates didn't help.

What are you talking about? The Shanghai rose up 5% on Thursday and gained another 4.8% just today. Couple that with a 10% increase in oil from yesterday with another 369 point rise in the DOW after Wednesday's massive 619 point rise.

GDP was came back higher than forecasted along with positive news on durable goods.

Sorry guys, I'm not seeing a downward trend/collapse/crash/whatever else you want to call it.

Turns out it probably was just nothing more then a simple correction.

It must suck for all the doom and gloomers. Maybe next time.

This is the price of oil over the last 5 years with the red line showing break even for US shale:



I think China has been bought some time, so the world economy as well, but a reckoning will come in the future, maybe this fall.

Shale oil production could be halved within the 2020-2023 time period.





Though I would expect this effect to be felt later in the coming years not this year.

China has slashed its interest rates 5 times in the last 9 months. This jump is only temporary. I think they need to figure something else out to save themselves.

By no means can this be seen as a correction, such ridiculous moves would be expected in the market of a banana republic.
Nobody in their right mind would buy the falling knife or buy the halt as we have seen this week.
This week just strengthens my view that there is no market, it is rigged and goes where wall street wants it to go.
The moves are simply insane and have more resemblance to a flash crash.

Seems everything is down in Asia 362 for Nikkei. I hope for investors and not the big cats but the average this isn't a repeat of last week.

Shanghai composite finished less than 1% down, now showing greater than 2% this following nite. Futures for US markets are down around the same rate. Might be starting back down sooner than later.





15min UPDATE:

Decline has doubled, not a good sign, but the ridiculous swings lately have got my lips sealed... we'll see.



Futures down another tick stateside.
