Is it just me or does this rally reek of insider trading. Let's see a few people make 2.2 million after buying Citi. TALF is picking up steam. Timmy the tax cheat reaffirms that they will spend us into oblivion to prop up insolvent financial institutions.

It smells of corruption and fraud.

Smells of something all right...better left unsaid...

I can't believe anyone at this point would trust their past/present/future to this "system" we have now...

We're being gamed at so many levels it's impossible to sort out nowdays...

Guess that's what we get for letting lawyers run the country...with their mightier than thou double talk principles...

Whenever inconvenient just change the law to what suits your needs best...

Agreed.

I liked the original 13th amendment that you started a thread on a while back.

No lawyers as politicians. That would be great and solve about 3/4 of our problems.

I wonder how Eastern Europe is going to fair this week. Along with the rest of Europe.

Citi? What about AIG???

In a Nutshell:

- Banks gave liar loans and insured those loans through AIG

- AIG gladly insured them thinking this is not our problem. AIG took the
premium and executives took big bonuses

- Those loans defaulted. Banks went to AIG asking for insurance money

- AIG said we never had the money.

- AIG told the US treasury Pay us or ....

- Treasury said here are the billions.

- AIG took the money, gave bonuses to themselves and paid the banks.
Now banks have the money and all the land and houses all over the country

.. is it that easy and simple to defraud the system ? Hope FBI grabs them.

opps it was the second one

The principles include giving the Federal Reserve new powers that include authority to monitor and address broad risks across the economy, say people familiar with the matter. The proposals are expected to include tougher capital requirements for big banks and authority for regulators to take over a large financial firm that is failing.

"We want to accelerate the pace of change on the reform agenda," Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said in an interview after a meeting of the Group of 20 finance ministers and central bankers over the weekend. Mr. Geithner was pressed for action on the regulatory front at the meeting, held just outside London. The administration's goal is to unveil its proposals before G-20 heads of state meet April 2, to wrest leadership of the thorny topic.

NOW we know why he elected that former central banker to his post!!!! How in the heck can a privately owned by Europeans central bank be in charge of our econ?
Ladies and Gents salute your new Queen...I mean president
This is going to ruffle alot of feathers!

Britain is showing signs of sliding towards a 1930s-style depression, the Bank of England says today for the first time.
www.telegraph.co.uk...

The country is displaying early symptoms of being trapped in a so-called “debt deflation trap” where families find themselves pushed further and further into the red every month, according to a Bank report published today.

The stark warning will cause serious concerns, since it was this combination of falling prices and soaring debt burdens that plagued the US in the 1930s.

The Bank is using its Quarterly Bulletin to highlight the threat posed to the economy by deflation – where prices fall each year rather than rise.

Although inflation is currently in positive territory, it is expected to become negative in the coming months.

The Bank is worried that this may combine with high levels of indebtedness to squeeze families further.

It says that families with high debts could fall prey to the debt deflation trap. This means that the cost of their debts, which are fixed, would rise compared to average prices throughout the economy. While inflation erodes debts, deflation makes them relatively higher.

The Bank’s paper suggests that Britain is particularly at risk because there is a high proportion of families with significant levels of debt, and many of them are on fixed mortgage rate, which means they will not benefit from rate cuts.

Britons’ total personal debt – the amount owed on mortgages, loans and credit cards – is, at £1.46 trillion, more than the value of what the country produces in a year.
This sounds bad also, with other majorly bad stories coming out of the UK as of late.

Lots of interesting news this weekend. Now it's just time to wait for the markets to open up later this morning.

Stocks will probably fall when G20 cant fix everything in one magical plan.

LONDON (MarketWatch) -- U.S. stock futures climbed on Monday, as hopes for the financial system continued to fuel markets with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke again pledging not to allow a repeat of Lehman Brothers.

little towards the end.....

Oil futures took a hit, down nearly 4% to $44.50 a barrel after the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries opted not to cut production quotas over the weekend. OPEC said they would focus instead on compliance with earlier cuts.
"We suspect that this downward move will linger for most of the week, as the markets will surely conclude that there is now less 'insurance' in the system should demand take a turn for the worst, or alternatively, if cartel members step up their cheating, which thus far, has been kept to a respectable minimum," said analysts from MF Global.

Got to love the British honesty there!

It would seem that perhaps the other side of the world has more trust for Bernake and his 60 minutes interview than we Americans do.
Maybe they will learn all to soon its all a smoke screen.

This can't be going over well.....
www.reuters.com...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Manufacturing production in New York State fell to yet another record low in March, extending its slump as gauges tracking new orders and investments deteriorated, according to a survey released on Monday.

The New York Federal Reserve said its Empire State factory index fell to minus 38.23 in March -- the lowest in the history of the index, which dates back to July 2001 and worse than February's minus 34.65.

"The Empire State Manufacturing Survey indicates that conditions for New York manufacturers deteriorated significantly in March," the report said.

Economists had expected a reading of minus 32.0, according to the median of their 50 forecasts, which ranged from minus 40.0 to negative 25.0.

Do you guys notice how WIDE these spreads are getting? No matter how bad they do people who buy into the it's not as bad as they thought it could get genre, are going to be screaming its all fine!
