All is looking good this morning. Wonder how long it will last?

AIG is certainly biting the hand that feeds it by suing us ( the government ) for several paintings and other misc. charges going back as far as 2004.

One of the paintings is a Van Gough worth millions.

No good deed goes unpunished.

I was just cruising the blog-o-sphere, looking for expert opinions on Geithner's plan.

Brad Delong defends the plan. Paul Krugman thinks that Brad Delong is wrong, and that the plan is insane. In turn, Brad Delong thinks that Krugman is wrong, but starts his blog by stating that Krugman is always right. On the other hand, Mike "Mish" Shedlock thinks that Paul Krugman is almost always wrong, except in this case, where Mish has become a full-blown Krugman cheerleader. And, in what is becoming a Brad Delong smackdown, Robert Waldman also thinks that Brad Delong is wrong.

Regulators seek global approach to short selling
www.reuters.com...

LONDON (Reuters) - Short-selling should be regulated as some practices may create disorderly markets during extreme financial turmoil, a global body of supervisors said on Monday.

Short-selling has been blamed by critics for exacerbating the slide in bank shares during the credit crunch.

And the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) policymakers, who have put forward recommendations to deal with the issue, have pointed to hedge funds as they often use the tactic.

"We believe that short selling should operate in a well-structured regulatory framework in the interests of maintaining a fair, orderly and efficient market," said Martin Wheatley, chairman of IOSCO's task force on short selling and also chief executive of Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission.

Defaulting Commercial Properties Hit Banks as Lost Jobs Increase Vacancies
www.bloomberg.com...

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. banks, battered by record losses from the worst housing slump since the Great Depression, now must weather increasing loan delinquencies from owners of skyscrapers and shopping malls.

The country’s 10 biggest banks have $327.6 billion in commercial mortgages, which face a wave of defaults as office vacancies grow and retailers and casinos go bankrupt. A projected tripling in the default rate would result in losses of about 7 percent of total unpaid balances, according to estimates from analysts at research firm Reis Inc.

Commercial property prices are down almost 20 percent in the past year, and with the global recession worsening, there’s “significant stress” in the market, said William Schwartz, a credit analyst at DBRS Inc. in New York. Moody’s Investors Service is reviewing the financial strength ratings of 23 regional lenders, as “these losses are likely to meaningfully weaken the capital position of many banks in 2009,” said Managing Director Robert Young in New York.

Bank Bond Spreads Widest Since 1996 Tell Stock Market Rebound in Jeopardy
www.bloomberg.com...

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- This month’s record rally in U.S. financial companies is in jeopardy, according to the bond market, where concern about bank failures is growing.

While the Standard & Poor’s 500 Financials Index of banks, brokerages and insurers surged as much as 54 percent from a 17- year low on March 6, bonds of the companies yield 8.55 percentage points more than Treasuries, about the widest in 13 years, according to Merrill Lynch & Co. indexes. The gap between yields of financial institutions’ bonds and Treasuries widened even as their stocks jumped.

The divergence between the performance of banks’ stocks and bonds shows the struggle facing investors trying to determine if the S&P 500’s 14 percent gain in the past two weeks means the worst is over for equities following the steepest plunge since 1937. Financial companies led the past month’s gains.

“Equities are trading as a barometer of speculative appetite,” said Kevin Caron, the Florham Park, New Jersey-based market strategist at the private client group of Stifel Nicolaus & Co., which oversees about $50 billion. “The bond market is focusing more on the balance sheet and the bogeyman lives in the balance sheet.”

I think this is the first time since the threads inception that it has fallen to page 2 on recents. Are people that stunned by what the market is doing that they don't know what to post? This uptrend is good for some people right? Can someone explain this +300 points to me, it doesn't make sense. The markets are acting like all americans woke up to a million dollars in cash in their dressers. Tim's plan doesn't spell recovery, so why are the markets acting that way? I don't understand but it is good in the short term, I though the markets going up this much this fast was a bad thing.

Stock-Option Repricing Lets Employees Sidestep Crash (Update4)
www.bloomberg.com...

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- EBay Inc., Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and dozens of other companies are asking shareholders to do something for employees that investors can’t do for themselves: sidestep the worst market crash since the Great Depression.

Since the start of 2008, 114 companies have proposed or completed plans that would exchange underwater stock options, according to research firm Equilar Inc. The companies swap options for ones with lower prices, increasing employees’ chances of making a profit.

The trend creates a dilemma for investors. The option exchanges lift employee morale and help retain valuable workers. At the same time, the programs don’t seem fair to some investors, since regular shareholders don’t get the same deal. They can also dilute the stock’s value when employees exercise their options.

“I remain skeptical about these types of proposals for obvious reasons,” said Paul Wick, a fund manager at J&W Seligman & Co., part of Ameriprise Financial, which had $372 billion under management at the end of 2008. “There’s no way for public investors to reboot and reprice their entry when they bought shares.”

It still makes very little sense, people grabbing at straws means a +300 point gain? It looks more like market manipulation to me. Like the rumor mill has got people spending. Just seems like the eye of a hurricane to me and no one is paying attention to the storm on the backside.

The problem is that people are desperate! What do you think is going to happen when they see through the smoke and mirror's band-aid's that the gov is putting on this crisis?
There is going to be a COMPLETE loss of confidence in the economy as a whole not just wall street, main street, country road you name it. I have been mulling over all of the news from this past weekend until now and it really seems that people are setting themselves up for one heck of a fall once this fall's through. The markets are reacting like we have suddenly come into some huge inheritance yet the truth be told we just got handed our butt's with a side order of chaos to come.

Sometimes it is good to just join the mob rather than fight against the market. As the old saying goes, the market can remain irrational far longer than you can remain solvent. Though I am not in the markets right now. I refused to buy Friday, I knew it was too uncertain. And the gov. came out with this news right after AH closed.

Well think of it this way.... the gov come's out with their hail mary plan to save us all from sure destruction. How would it look if we tanked in the markets on the same day?
I have noticed that the markets have done an about face as far as the numbers go on the days that the gov speaks of their plans of salvation. Before when they spoke it was tanking numbers....now all of the sudden its huge rallies? Give me a break already

A common theme that's emerged is to put out bad news disguised as good news, and what do ya know? The market rockets on the good news then drops when proper dissection shows that it was actually bad news.

Today we had the news that the California housing market was "recovering." I think that partially explains this rally.

I also had to laugh - as I read this today. The foreclosures have been SO vast (especially in the more remote California areas - ) and the prices plummeted down so low - that folks that couldn't afford - can- sort of.
So there IS some movement in that way -
I check "reasonable" housing markets frequently.

But - "recovering" is a ridiculous word to use for the behavior of the California real estate market. I think we have just begun to see the true falling of it -
Allthough - it wouldn't be such a bad thing for parts of California
to get a little more real and in line with the rest of the world.
A little balance can be a good thing.

Yeah! More great news. Let's buy, buy, buy. The markets will keep going up, back to 14,000 maybe 15,000. How are people seeing the rainbow? Just announcing a plan doesn't make it so. Timmy made some statements, didn't actually do anything. His "satements" would take much time to put into effect and who knows what will happen between now and then. WTF?
