Japan's factory output rose by 1.9 percent in July from June, marking a fifth straight monthly gain, AFP reported.



AFP: Japanese stocks open up 0.7 pct after opposition landslide that ends more than half a century of conservative rule.


Still... the japan economy is in depression, and the opposition winning might mean doom for the japanese US bonds purchase...we'll see at the next auction how much Japan buys.

You know why the Nikkei is doing bad? Because the yen is too strong!

For once, the news are ``too good``...making the yen stronger, because of the winning election of the opposition, meaning it's bad for the Nikkei since the japanese economy is an exporting economy.

Also, investors think that the economic policies of the opposition will be succesful : no more US puppet, closer with China, hints at a regional currency, cut in spending... and with the failure of the last party to revive the economy from the 90s depression, it would be hard to do worse.

Barney Frank says he supports a full audit of the Fed and is working with Ron Paul to get the bill passed by October.

www.cnbc.com...

I wonder if the Federal Reserve will crash the equity markets in October to demonstrate that 'secrecy is needed'.

It is worth a try.

Sorry, that was wrong. The medias are reporting BS.

Misinformation Alert: Barney Frank Never Said That HR 1207 Will Pass In October


With “This will probably pass in October”, Frank is referring not to HR 1207, but to his own financial regulation bill, which might or might not include some aspects of Ron Paul’s HR 1207. The preceding sentence, “That will be part of the overall federal regulation that we are redacting,” is for some reason missing from the widely distributed transcript, and has therefore been completely ignored by bloggers and commentators.


So Frank don't want to pass HR1207, but ``similar`` legislation...likely to be weak...very weak.

Frank is very corrupt, it really surprised me when the medias reported that...the medias were wrong.

The drop in the Asian markets overnight is still about China tightening their monetary policy. The US stock futures went back down to the bottom of the recent trading range again but the US loose money policy does not put equities here under the same pressure.

The US dollar index is back up near the middle of its range, which was a little unexpected given the recent strengthening of the Yen. Its still early in the day who knows?

The markets to open about 50 down, that is not so bad.

Now the big story

Only 5 billions have been recovered in the way of investments from the mammoth bailout money that is up to the trillions if we count the cash injections that the fed invested when the market and the financial were having trouble up to the official crash when they were called bailout.

Well at this pace we may be able to recuperate some of the billions by 2050.


More tax payer money wasted while the nations population keep falling into desperation.

Chinese Stocks Plunge 6.7%; Japan Ends Down

I wonder what China is planning, are they showing that they have as much power in the Markets ups and downs as the US monopoly?



China's key stock index dived 6.74 percent on Monday to a three-month closing low and recorded its second-biggest monthly loss in 15 years, after surging stock valuations overwhelmed improvements in corporate earnings while new share supplies compounded a drop in liquidity.


I think this a very planned and executed trick by China, but hey you don't have to listen to me, I am just a conspirator by trade


www.cnbc.com...


Continuing a stream of fresh shares flowing into the market, Metallurgical Corp of China's Shanghai A-share initial public offering, which aims to raise about 16.85 billion yuan ($2.47 billion), will start book-building on Tuesday and take subscriptions next week.


Humm. . .

That's an old news which aired before the Feds raided Rockpuck's condo in Beaverton this morning. After the raid, the figure has changed . . .

The before-noon development doesn't indicate any suprising afternoon selling.



But it doesn't indicate any gains leading to the Previous Close line either.

I just sold my 5 SPY 104 puts that I bought like a week ago for 3 dollars. Sold them for 4 today so I made around 500 dollars in profit. Which isn't a lot but it will pay for like half this month's rent that is due

Well is going to take another 2 years to make 28 billions for the bail out so if we do the math we will be using this money to bail out another crisis before all the money is recuperated.

and...

Dow 9,454.19 -90.01 (-0.94%)

Nasdaq 2,001.83 -26.94 (-1.33%)

How did the banks manage to pay back + interest in the midst of a severe recession? I don't think that those hicked up overdraft fees, no more free checking accounts and so on did the job. They did it usual way; they borrowed the money from the government to pay back the government following the way the Treasury joggles its bonds: it pays back by borrowing again according to the Ponzi scheme, or Madoff scheme to update the name.

I never liked that guy Gabriel -- I mean the Archangel -- and his silly tirades: Heavenly Father, I strongly urge you to reconsider your next action. The market shouldn't dance the way that spoiled brat Stander whistles . . .

Sounds like you are the board money winner. I bought into an oil fund when it broke $70 a barrel this morning thinking oil would rally before stocks so I'm still down $100.


Marg picked the Dow close today down about 50 points. Maybe things will turn around in Asia over night.
