Aye, Aye Aye, you know things are bad when John Stewart is giving a real interview. He interviewed Jim Cramer and they are playing it now. Of course it has some funny comments from John, but for the most part it is a serious interview.

I just started watching the markets, but is it normal for the futures to be going down while the foreign markets are going up?

Citigroup Inc: Insider Trading
moneycentral.msn.com...

03/02/09 HERNANDEZ RAMIREZ ROBERTO Purchase 6.00 Mil $1.25 7.50 Mil

Roberto Hernández Ramírez

Roberto Hernández Ramírez (b. 1942 in Tuxpan, Veracruz) is a Mexican businessman. He is a former CEO of Banco Nacional de México (Banamex), Mexico's second largest bank, just after BBVA Bancomer, from Spain. He is currently a member of the administration board of Citigroup, as well as the owner of El Tamarindo Beach and Golf Resort, a hotel where French President Nicolas Sarkozy was hosted during his stay in Mexico in March 2009 [1].

:snip:

Roberto Hernández is widely known to be one of the greatest philanthropist in Mexico [citation needed]. Beside hosting Nicolas Sarkozy in March 2009, he also hosted a meeting in Mérida between US President Bill Clinton and Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo in 1999, which was about the "war on drugs" [2]. At the same time of that meeting, in 1999, a Mexican local newspaper, Por Esto!, published by Mario Menéndez Rodríguez, published a story alleging that Ramírez had been involved in drug dealing and money laundering [2]. According to the newspaper, "coastal marshlands purchased by Hernández in the late '80s and early '90s were the port of entry for massive volumes of coc aine delivered in small Colombian speedboats." [2]. In 2007, Ramirez against hosted, in Merida, a meeting concerning US and Mexico drug policies between George W. Bush and his counterpart Felipe Calderón [3].

Trial:
Por Esto! also filed federal criminal complaints against Hernández for drug trafficking, for the robbery of national archeological treasures (his properties include the ancient Mayan ruins of Chac Mool), and for the environmental destruction caused by the drug-dealing operations to the Sian Ka'an nature preserve [2]. Following several articles, Ramirez and his bank, the Banco Nacional de Mexico, deposed a courtsuit against Por Esto! and Al Giordano, a drug expert who had published a story concerning these allegations in Narco News. Both Mexico and the Supreme Court of the State of New York disavowed Ramirez [4].

Citigroup Executives Score $2.2 Million Betting on Own Stock
www.bloomberg.com...

The executives, including director Roberto Hernandez, benefited as the company’s stock climbed 47 percent from March 10 through yesterday’s close of markets, after Chief Executive Officer Vikram Pandit said in a memo that the bank is having the best quarter since 2007. Their buying spree was the first by bank insiders since Jan. 14, filings show.

“You’re supposed to buy when everyone else is selling,” said Bruce Foerster, a former Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. managing director who now runs South Beach Capital Markets in Miami. Banks have internal systems to monitor executive trades and prevent abuses, he said.
Right.....

futures dont mean anything unless you are see triple digits

if we see the m-t-m drop or get adjusted we are going to see BIG TIME GAINS in financials..

Not taking bailout money??? HELLO???
If someone can clarify I will owe you one...

I read and I read...I am just beginning to barely see the "layers" that are involved in this mess.
My lil' red head has been spinning for days trying to grasp the magnitude and potential consequences.
I guess if I could ask ONE question of someone who knows MUCH more than I do, it would be why didn't anyone who saw this coming do anything to stop it?
Not only did they see it coming I am realizing,it was encouraged and nurtured.
I know it was all hinted at but I feel like I just woke up one morning not too long ago and WHAM,that flying-carpet left without me,leaving me hanging on to threads.
Now I wonder where the hell do we go from here:will there ever really BE another time to invest such as many of us have been "used to?"
I'm pissed off to think that I worked hard and saved so I'd "have something" and now it pretty much is sitting idle mocking me to do anything with it.


Editing here: guess I can buy Citigroup.

Uh...not exactly...

You mean no more for now...besides the 10's of billions they're parking in Treasury right now, double dipping on interest?

It's all a shell game...get money for nothing...park it...suck up interest from us...sad...that's profit???

Guess I don't get it...please explain why I should run to my Broker...

I guess you could get in now and jump if it goes higher...profit taking but scares me...the bottom could drop out as fast as they built it...not sustainable in any kind of long run...

Obama declares crisis not as bad as we think:

www.foxnews.com...

The daily pep talk.

I no longer know how I got this "old" being so stupid as these people would believe.

I am simply not buying it and although I do agree that there might be something to be "made",it will be a stressful and hard job to pull it off.

Agree with Hx3 as to the bottom-drop possibility.

Would have to have a helluva' fast 'puter or an on call broker.

I did check the quote you posted...agree that based on that it might go up.
They are "taking no more bailout money because?"

Because they used the first chunk so efficiently they're already making money on the infusion?

citi accounts for what like .01% of DJIA?

Not only that but since when are futures up after a huge % gain rally???

Never..

Looks like they are coming back anyways, but futures dont mean anything (ex. this morning) so that post you made was pretty irrelevant
