Interesting thought

We just might need time to "absorb" rather than to purge though..

true ... if you can buy low and resell at a profit... of course to you could turn that 90210 prop into a fourplex and take section 8 vouchers... maybe make some of that back... but I dont see that market coming back even after ten years time

If you are referring to take-overs, they potentially just spread the rot - not to mention a move towards monopolization. More & more in the hands of fewer & fewer.

I suppose if you have the right connections you get your hands on as many failed institutions as possible, then just wait for the government hand-outs. Are you really comfortable if that is what is happening? We're talking cronyism & kick-backs on a hitherto unforeseen scale!

That is one mantra that like Brown said the media has used to gain favoritism toward the psychology of making people think that ever thing is turning around.

If I just looked at stochastics for a living, I would be living in the past.

It is one piece of the puzzle, but not the whole thing.

Although, one of my favorite indicators (SKF vs. DJIA) it is not pretty and SKF is breaking technical levels and holding..

Remember though, markets are set up to hurt THE MOST AMT OF PEOPLE AT ONE TIME and it looks like they were successful at stopping out everyone again and that might just be what we needed to pull this turnaround

Remember what people were saying about the dollar 3 weeks ago.. how we were absolutely headed to destruction.. well when the public knows something so readily IT WILL NOT HAPPEN..

So there are many things to think about


Exactly, it does hurt the most amount of people...and most people have not been participating, so how can it hurt the most amount of people?

What i am saying I guess is basically this.

Yes, we prob should have let them all fail, but that would cause global chaos.

So we take a hit that is going to hurt us for quite a while.. let the guys in the board room find a way to funnel all this money around to bring us back to an "equilibrium" somewhat.. then we can go back up again...

Kind of like going broke.. then going to Amscot to get a payday advance and then slowly paying them back along with "slick eddy" the loanshark etc...

It will end where it started. Lunch hour belching . . .

They shouldn't have let the banks fail. They should have taken them over and sold them to smaller, healthier banks.

Yes It was a media review of how things are going in California with the bankruptcies.

Still the price you pay for property just to because the name "Beverly hills" is going to kill you at the end.

Also, when the news media went inside some of the homes, it look like they were back still in the 60s, meaning that some houses are in need of upgrading and repairs so you will have to add more money just to bring some of this homes up to day.

Now drug money will do wonders with some of this mansions.

People are still invested - just not like before

That is why I like my theory of holding contrary long and short positions at the same time and executing at different prices (well at least my program does that) but that is another story

At the same time just because some people aren't monetarily invested, their psyche is still hurt, which I think hurts as much as getting the money pulled out of your pocket

Always better to just find another source of income than to 'rebuild' on the back of borrowed money, don't you think?

I know it is not as simple as all that. But if you have a basic philosophy and stick to it, it does make a big difference. So what do you prefer? A state & crony-run economy - or dynamic capitalism?

That's the way to make some real money. Buy 1 gram of coc aine in Columbia---10 dollars. Sell 1 gram of coc aine in New Zealand---180 dollars.

Making 1800% profit.....

Priceless.

Well seeing that the .gov really only has their hand in AIG,GM,FM,FM,42% of Citi.. although it really shouldnt be like that, it really isnt that bad IMO that is

But Id rather have that 100x over than see everything just totally drop and the USA is no longer the USA but part of the NAU or something - or in a lesser scenario just chaos in the streets, no electricity etc..

Hopefully the ends justify the means

Or you could sell it at $60/g in Tampa, but it is going to contain 60% salt, so your profit margin keeps on growing lol

Or you could move 19 Billion ten year notes at 3.365% hahahaha

On a more interesting note, you should all take a look at this statistic I will share with you all that runs at a TREMENDOUS CLIP

Someone turns on the "program" at 3:00am in the DJ Futures.. Fade that move - IMO (and I havent statistically analyzed this) but from what I ususally see 75% of the time, when you fade that move you will be filling your pockets full of a fools money - although you will need special software to analyze this because its not just like you find this info for free, but I am giving it to you for free

So dont say I have never given you all anything lol (just dont spend it all in one place!)
