Asia caught a bid???

Looks like yesterday did become the "catch a breather day" - tried to be a rally, but when you have Bernanke, Geithner and Obama all on the tube, there's no way the markets are gonna be happy


So let's see that oversold rally come on, because the end of the 5th wave is gonna be FUGLY!

I'm out now - all out.

I am only watching for *entertainment* purposes.

I'm fairly sure we are past the point of no return, even though there will still be some beer money to be made in this.

See what we look like in a year, then maybe, idk... maybe 2 yrs...

It's not fun anymore and I am not willing to participate in funding the fall.

Yep doom and gloom
But, more time with the kids and dog coming up, some fishing and probably some traveling - time to find a nice chunk of fertile ground and set up the defensive perimeter

Good man...back to simple life!
I've head/read all day the 3500-4500 "bottom" is what some/most are looking for with 20%-25% failure rates?


Arbitrage indeed...

ROFL Bottom with 25% fails, and that 25% leads to another 25% and so on and so forth until the only business that survive are Government owned.

Bah - not my cup of tea

And now for the lighter side of life



Great blog post on the Strengthening Dollar

Sorry back to Oh Crap


Treasuries Fall as U.S. May Announce $60 Billion of Debt Sales
March 4 (Bloomberg) -- Treasuries fell, extending the worst losses in five years, on speculation the U.S. will announce plans tomorrow to sell $60 billion of debt next week as it borrows record amounts to spur the economy.

The “steady drumbeat of Treasury auctions” will send yields higher this year, said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd. in New York. Treasuries dropped even as global stock markets declined, raising concern that increasing supply is overwhelming demand for the relative safety of government debt.

“Supply is pushing yields higher,” said Peter Jolly, head of market research at National Australia Bank Ltd.’s investment- banking unit in Sydney. “As stock markets are making lows, you would have thought that would send Treasury yields lower. I fear the supply concerns are gaining the upper hand.”

The yield on the 10-year note rose six basis points to 2.94 percent as of 1:48 p.m. in Tokyo, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The price of the 2.75 percent security due in February 2019 dropped 15/32, or $4.69 per $1,000 face amount, to 98 13/32. A basis point is 0.01 percentage point.

Ten-year yields will be between 2.75 percent and 3.25 percent for the next few months, Jolly said, increasing his target range by a quarter percentage point from last week.

Yields, which dropped to a record 2.04 percent on Dec. 18, have averaged 4.64 percent for the past decade.

The U.S. will probably sell a record $33 billion of three- year notes on March 10, $17 billion of 10-year debt on March 11 and $10 billion of 30-year bonds on March 12, according to Wrightson, a research unit of the world’s largest inter-dealer broker. The auctions follow $94 billion of note sales last week.

I'm no expert, but when I look at the inflation-adjusted S&P and inflation-adjusted Dow, I don't see any reason to hope that we don't "bottom out" below the critical threshold of S&P 500=500 (unless they reinflate the bubble, somehow).

If I weren't already insolvent myself, I'd be stocking up on ramen noodles right now.

I liken the current situation in the market like the Manchurian Candidate. People (traders) have been brainwashed by Obama to "buy stocks" while holding each other hands and singing "up up and away".

Good luck with that though. Just makes for a more resounding crash a few days later.

Fee Rate Advisory #3 for Fiscal Year 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2009-41

Washington, D.C., March 4, 2009 — Effective on April 1, 2009, or 30 days after the date of enactment of the Commission's regular appropriation for FY 2009, whichever is later, the Section 31 fee rate applicable to securities transactions on the exchanges and over-the-counter markets will increase to $25.70 per million dollars. Until that date, the current rate of $5.60 per million dollars will remain in effect. The Section 31 assessment on security futures transactions will remain unchanged at $0.0042 per round turn transaction.

A copy of the Commission's Feb. 27, 2009, order regarding the mid-year fee adjustment for fiscal year 2009 is available at www.sec.gov... As explained more fully in the order, the Commission is required to adjust the Section 31 fee rate based on the estimated dollar volume of securities sales for FY 2009. The Commission consulted with the Congressional Budget Office and the Office of Management and Budget regarding the calculation of the mid-year adjustment, as required by Section 31(j)(2) of the Act. The Commission's calculation methodology is described in the order.

Section 31(k) of the Act requires the Commission to continue to collect transaction fees at the previous year's rate until 30 days after the date of enactment of the Commission's regular appropriation for FY 2009. The Commission will publish the effective date of the new rate announced today once the Commission's regular appropriation for FY 2009 is enacted.

The Office of Interpretation and Guidance in the Commission's Division of Trading and Markets is also available for questions on Section 31 fees at (202) 551-5777, or by e-mail at tradingandmarkets@sec.gov.

The Commission will announce the FY 2010 rates for fees paid under Section 6(b) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Sections 13(e), 14(g), and 31 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 no later than April 30, 2009. Those rates will become effective on Oct. 1, 2009, or after the date of enactment of the Commission's regular appropriation for FY 2010, whichever comes later.

hattip to TBear for this wonderful summary


Guys, YOU need to take this issue VERY seriously.

Just do the math.

Add 1/2% to every trade in terms of cost, or less profit. Think about it from a market makers perspective: Instead of offering a penny spread in the market, the dealer will have to offer at a price which allows him to pay TWO taxes on every round trip. We're very quickly back to the world of eigth's and quater's..... You will not be able to buy things at a penny spread and then, if you are wrong, get out for a few cents. You're hooked on bad longs; and need to have an extended run to make money on 'good' longs. Ditto for shorts!

If you are a day trader, or even a swing trader, you are out of business with this new tax plan!

Sometimes, I wonder if the Administration is trying to get to rock-bottom as soon as possible, so that they can claim that things have been "improving" during the next election. If they think we're inevitably getting there anyway, sooner is better than later, from a political standpoint.

reuters edited it out of the update I can't find it now. They weren't talking resources, they where talking actually taking over companies via stock buy up control.

to add:
going to go and see if I can find another article that has the buy up information in it.


GOT IT:

China hunts for Europe takeovers as stocks jump

LONDON (AFP) – Chinese businesses hunted for takeover targets in Europe and bargain hunters pushed up flagging stock markets on Wednesday, as the economic crisis dealt more heavy blows to firms and nations in the West.
skip some dribble;;;;;

Chinese state media meanwhile reported that a high-level business delegation will visit Europe this weekend to look for companies to buy up after a visit last month netted more than 13 billion dollars (10.4 billion euros) in deals.
