Beware the "Tower of Babble"

Today the "Tower of Babble" isn't located in Babylon but rather on Wall Street. That's where economists and analysts put on a serious air and explain to us plebs what's about to happen with the economy, currencies, interest rapes, commodity jargons, and the stock market...that stands as a solid foundation on a layer of Quicksand.

There's an almost perfect correlation between the specificity of an analyst's forecasts and the chances that he's giving useless and dangerous advice to make you jump into the River for a swim with the Crocodiles.

If he says something like, "The market has broken through its 50-day moving average and will begin testing new lows this week." Translation: Here's what I get when I read my tea leaves, deal my tarot cards, and gaze into my missing balls.

But if he says, "Expect the S&P to hit 1,210 before rebounding to 1,350 and then finding support at 1,970," run. Translation: I am wearing a sandwich board that says, "I haven't the foggiest notion what I'm talking about."

The Signs are there for a Market Crash

The Great Stock Market Crash of 1929 marks its 75th anniversary with the usual questions of could it happen again, yes.....The Signposts are there, you just have to observe them.

Watch the Signs : The worst day in market history didn’t occur in the 1929 crash, but in more modern times on October 19, 1987 when the Dow dropped over 500 points, as the buying panic rose, complex computer programs kicked in and began issuing more sell orders. Known as programmed trading, these automated systems added fuel to the fire. When the dust had settled, over $1 trillion in value had disappeared from the market and this February, investors witnessed a drop of $583 billion in U.S. market wealth.

On Feb. 27 of this year, a 9 percent market sell-off in China sent ripples of fear through stocks markets across the world. In the United States, the Dow's one-day plunge of 416 points was the steepest decline since the market opened after Sept. 11, 2001.

So the question is: Should stock investors be worried? As you might expect, some say yes and some say no....What do You SAY ? Fact : the stock market has been experiencing a long, slow crash for years now and the time has approached for the Bell to Ring !!!

"You need to understand value more than Price. Just because the Price of something goes up doesn't necessarily mean the value has gone up."

"If Prices go up without a corresponding increase in value, it means the value of the asset has actually gone Down."

When the purchasing power of gold is compared to the purchasing power of the Dow, the Dow appears to be crashing.That means the average investor will need at least a 15 percent annual return on their stocks or mutual funds just to stay ahead of the U.S. dollar's purchasing power erosion -- that is, just to break even.

Beware the "Tower of Babble"

Just when you thought big Con-Job Corporations might be content with looting tens of billions of yearly profits, they surprise you by grasping for pennies.

The Great Depression was caused by a deflationary spiral and in the end that's what caused the 1929 crash...and the crash did not actually cause the Great Depression as many who have no clue what they are talking about claim. Privatized social security was the only thing the Bush administration put forth that I actually agreed with. Anyhow, we are no where near the level we were in 1929, it is more like the early 1990s. The stock market has been going up since 2002, I hardly see that as a "slow crash" the only crash we have seen is the crash in the American dollar, why would someone sell stocks so much and rush to the dollar when it's been losing it's value so precipitously. A crash is very unlikely, a large down day is possible...but a crash, the only way that could happen is if the U.S. debt was downgraded to AA instead of AAA.

Yeah I do not think they will Drop it to AA, as they would be shooting themselves in the foot by doing it.

Unless...if you are blinded to reality or maybe a relative or cousin to Conmaster Greenscam.....we are already into a deep recession and our Debt Situation is below Ground Zero, the only thing that is keeping this big wounded ship afloat, is the band-aid type.....looted oil revenues from Iraq via the Israeli port of Haifa, but even there....there are so many vultures to feed to silence this huge deception, that it just cannot sustain and keep this huge wounded ship afloat, anymore.....it's time to jump ship, the Neocons have long jumped ship, what are you waiting for !!!

A stock market 'crash' may not unfold as you/we envision it...
you know, the value of all traded stocks dropping to .02 cents apiece scenario.


the 'crAsh' may come as something like the individual investor no longer being able to participate.
with only the preferred Fund managers and Investment Banks being allowed to buy-sell-or-trade -futures inthe system.
And, the whole process being 'overseen' by the newest entry of corporate-fascism juggernaut... i.e. The Federal Reserve who will have both the Treasury and the SEC as their 'enforcers'.
and the IRS as their torturers of last resort.


in recent days, I have seen the process of Entropy unfold... only to have the ecomomic-financial powerhouse impose 'new' rules which is the only
possible remedy for the decay within a closed system which Entropy is the result.
No, corporate fascism is the new order-of-the-day... and most will embrace it (the fascist model)
and many will willingly accept this 'mark' on their hand or forehead....
for the stability and assurance it brings to their world of survival

Do not expect a significant change in the markets until after the elections.

Right just like the oil prices the markets are been manipulated to avoid mass hysteria before the elections.

It looks like oil is going down, and the Dow is going up...where's the crash? It looks like things are getting better...

a typical stockbrokers type speech.....they always talk this way, in terms of 'don't worry...be sorry' wait till the next chop on your head, and then...you will know for certain, that you are dead......ready to be buried.

Dow is a Casino that entertains those who like to see their money grow on a tomato tree, but does not tell them the number of tomatoes that will be declared as rotton.....and oil is a commodity, that the real stockbrokers will never tell you about, because it has a 'don't touch' tag on it.

to play this poker game with these shaisthas, you have to be a ghost

After all said and done, by whomever concerned, for whatever or whichever reasons, the fact will always remain the same......The US is Bankrupt, it has been Bankrupt since 6 years, but supported on Life Support and it's now time to face reality and abandon the Sick Baby. The Joker is gone Home to Cry
