Authorities probe insider trading at SEC


Two U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission employees are under investigation by federal criminal authorities for allegedly using insider information to trade stocks, a source familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

A report by the SEC's internal watchdog alleges that the two SEC lawyers traded in stock of a large financial services company despite being told by another SEC employee of ongoing investigations of that company, CBS News reported.

The SEC inspector general report said one SEC attorney under investigation works in the Office of the SEC's Chief Counsel and has access to a tremendous amount of nonpublic information, CBS News said.

I would like to believe that SOMEONE somewhere is looking for the real crooks, but I have yet to see even one of the 535 complicit criminals have to face any tough questioning yet.

True that, you will never ever ever ever ever hear the backroom story

In a more recent note pertaining to this, you should check out dendrion when they ran up 20 some points, then a bear raid took it down to 8 dollars and then it got halted, then opened back up to 25

NASDAQ determined all trades stood.

Im surprised no one has commented on this yet.


To top that, some on the yahoo message board called it, at the EXACT TIME, 20 MINUTES BEFORE IT HAPPENED

I was watching that too, because CNBC was pumping it all day (BEFORE THE DROP) and I just watched the whole thing unfold..

I went back and looked at the ticker at NASDAQ.COM and they were all round lots, ALL RETAIL GOT STOPPED OUT

I do envy though the group that took that out, and then bought it all back, pretty genius, and must have had a great insight on that stocks liquidity levels.. there is MUCH MORE to this story of course.. but you should check it out

marg, I'm shocked beyond any conceivable recovery.
What?
Yes, it's about Bernanke -- what else?

www.house.gov...

www.instafinance.org...

I don't know what it takes to flirt with the Speaker of the House during a Congressional hearing -- I don't think Ben would ever tell me. But if Ben got the guts for it, I would expect that he would pass a wink, maybe two. But how, in the world, could Bernanke be so outrageously descriptive to spark an interest?

You know, he lives in the world of big money . . . maybe that's why.

Aah, where did all the flowery romance go, marg?

The system now that has taken over our nation, is to benefit only one class, making the division of classes wider and wider specially during the this recession and at the end the tax payer will be sacrificed for the ones holding the power.

You know, the system "now" has always been like that. The sole purpose of state is distribution.
First states were made forcefully, by forcing people to come into one center - town. And people were forcefully made to believe a lie. And I repeat: by force. And it has always been like that and still is. And they have all been distributed a duty, a position in society. And they have never been paid the equivalent for their work, they only get allowances. And in present situation, we have a re designation of allowances, that's all that's happening. Who "gets" and who doesn't "get" bonuses.

And all the thieves are very visible, only people are "made" to believe they are not. It all hangs on a single straw, which is called: cowardice.

Yes, what people really need now is the "Magnificent Seven"

It's not that easy to backtrack and pinpoint the time frame when the market lost its coherency. The market was always the function of the economy, not the way around. The volume is low, an indicative of gamblers peering into their buy/sell algorithm-filled computer screens. The present market is an impotent and misleading indicator where things may be heading. It's an inferior junk not to go by. The reason why is it watched is that it is easy to follow, as opposed to the economic indicators that may be obscured by the language the economists and statisticians speak.

Have a nice end-of-week gain, Dow.

We must find some other index that is easy to follow but is based on "real money" changing hands. Looky, looky, looky . . .

numbrary.com...

Today, the Dow gamblers will learn at 8:30 am (they already know it) that the index is -12, which is 2.65 points better than in April.
Then, in 9:55 am the Consumer Sentiment will be released (it's 67)
. That's not an obstacle to climb.

Marlon P7D, this is tower. You have a permission to climb to 8,400 feet.

Tower, this is Marlon P7D. Roger.

Rockpuck, go to sleep.

Hmmm...it's down...no...it's up...is it? Really? DOH

U.S. April CPI flat as tobacco prices jump
www.marketwatch.com...

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Led by a large decline in energy prices, U.S. consumer prices were unchanged in April after seasonal adjustments and have fallen 0.7% in the past 12 months, the largest decline in 54 years, the Labor Department reported Friday. The decline in the consumer price index has sparked concerns about deflation in the United States. However, core inflation - which excludes volatile food and energy prices - has not declined. In the past year, the core CPI is up 1.9%. In April, the seasonally adjusted core CPI rose 0.3%, boosted by a 9.3% increase in tobacco prices. Excluding tobacco, the CPI fell 0.1% and the core CPI rose 0.1%.

Benchmark 10-yr yield up 0.5% at 3.105% after CPI

Nice, more pretty charts.. looking over it I got to wonder.. WTF happened two months prior to June 2003?

Ohhh .. that's right.. we attacked an innocent country.. I forgot, silly me.


News on the European front:

Euro-Zone suffers from EconoFlu!!

Of course, individual countries are suffering in relation to their actual economies, however like the US it's much better to focus on the whole, not individual. It's easier to hide bad numbers, don'cha know. Germany suffers single worse GDP contraction since the Wall fell!

Ireland's sollution to vanishing jobs: Create jobs that have no purpose!

Lost your job? Afraid you might loose your job? Afraid when you do loose your job the Government won't help? Well in Ireland they have a solution .. The State will work with Unions to create jobs .. doing .. well that doesn't matter, so long as they pay. Considering Ireland's Debt to GDP is the highest in the entire World.. this is essentially akin to pulling a donkey out of a top hat with the wave of a wand!

Europeans angry that they lost or might loose their job protest across Europe!

OK ok .. before the morons across the Board start screaming "Why doesn't America do this! Zomg, we are soo lazy!"

These people are protesting because they believe the Government should Make it impossible to loose a job... These are Socialist, Communist, the people that are against Capitalism, and would prefer to have the State feed them into contentment. Disgusting.

Why are American Unions not protesting? Well for instance, when Chrysler Idled the tax payers are still paying the Union workers their 60-80-100k+ year salaries.

I don't agree that market is in function of economy. It is the other way around. Look what has been done with the bailout money - it is used to manipulate market in order to outsource economy. That is a fact.

Small time traders are happy with their hobby. Big manipulators play global catastrophe, because they are by all means incompetent and irresponsible.

WTF?? Country Club America?

Lawmakers Seek Geithner Help in Saving Obama Tailor


U.S. lawmakers are seeking Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s help in persuading Wells Fargo & Co. not to liquidate Hartmarx Corp., the 122-year-old clothing company that has made suits for President Barack Obama.

Representative Phil Hare said yesterday that more than 30 members of Congress, including House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, will join him in asking Geithner to pressure Wells Fargo to entertain bids for the bankrupt company instead of closing it down. The lawmakers are drafting a letter with the request.

“We’re asking him to call Wells Fargo and tell them not to liquidate,” said Hare, an Illinois Democrat and a Hartmarx employee for 13 years before his election to Congress.


Is Ayn Rand Laughing or crying about now?

I remember being on that board when a guy predicted about an hour before the stock's trading was halted that the stock would suffer a bear raid and fall 50%. Soon enough the stock's trading was suspended and it was down 50%. AH it climed 130%.
