Halting the program trading is primarily for psychological value. It did not have too much of an effect today on the Dow, but it is designed to prevent big sell off panics that are not based on fundamental problems. Over in India the market can drop 50% in one night on just a rumor. Computer trading does exaggerate the trend and volatility scares away the dividend seeking crowd that have invested for their retirements. If it was just us techies trading on price than I would totally agree with you.

September is going to end up.

I just don't see how September can be a down month.

The bull rally is still in effect and current prices are offered as a discount to the future!!!

Generally I am bearish on stocks but the markets pulled back to pretty good support levels so as you say this could be a buying opportunity.

Well there's some rumors going around that a BIG BANK will die within 2 weeks maximum...

The three names:

- PNC
- Regions
or Wells Fargo.


Wells Fargo going down would be nice, but it very unlikely...and if it were to go down...
That would be total doom, aka fun, for me at least. (im a doom addict)

I vote for Regions.

The Nikkei only broke above 10,700 one day so 10,200 may be a similar support level to the Dow 9300. The Dow broke 9600 three times.

According to Harry Dent, the oil prices will continue to rise until the end of the year or maybe even into 2010.


Today oil fell from $71 a barrel back to $68. A new tropical storm named Erika was named this morning and the forecast has it moving towards the US coastline.

Hopefully God will spare the continental US, but Erika is headed west north west which could take her into the Carolinas like Hugo causing a shutdown in oil platforms off the southeast coast. She could also chase Florida motorists up and down their state as they attempt to evacuate. (This kind of scenario caused Texas gas stations to run out of gasoline evacuating from one hurricane in recent years). Erika could even travel through the Florida straits and cause the oil companies to shut down their oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

Not to blow the horn like Gabriel, but one might think investors would not be shorting oil with a possible hurricane threatening? Just goes to show the markets are not responding to any fundamentals. It is hard to believe that oil prices will rise to over $148 a barrel unless the US dollar drops to half its value by the end of next year.

Wells fargo is "to big to fail" and PNC was in ... relative good health, good enough to eat National City anyways lol.. my bet would have to be regions.. not sure if it will impact the markets, hell colonial didn't even dent the advance..

Markets will pull back in Sept.. they almost always do.. and augusts super low volume imo lead to over pricing.

It was definitely fun when crises were in the air. Now all we got is a rumor that some lousy regional bank may fail. What the hell happened to when merrill lynch, washington mutual, aig, lehman brothers, bear stearns, wachovia all failed and citi, bank of america, wells fargo were next? This is B-O-R-I-N-G

China to renege on commodity contracts

A report that Chinese state-owned companies will be allowed to walk away from loss-making commodity derivative trades provoked anger and dismay among investment bankers on Monday as they feared it may set a damaging precedent.
~
While the details of the report could not be confirmed, it was Monday's hot topic in financial circles from Shanghai to Singapore as commodity marketers feared that companies holding underwater price hedges could simply renege on the deals, costing banks millions of dollars in profit.
~
Head of Chinese government owned businesses sends letter to SIX FOREIGN BANKS stating that derivatives contracts will not be honored due to fraud.

This opens a 700 trillion dollar abyss.

Wall Street falls 2 percent on anxiety over banks' health
finance.yahoo.com...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks fell for a third straight day on Tuesday, spooked by uncertainty over the health of financials and concerns that the explosive rally since March may have run ahead of economic reality.

September began living up to its reputation as the worst month for stocks as elevated anxiety pushed the three major indexes down 2 percent for the day, their worst percentage losses since Aug 17.

Skepticism that stocks can add to a nearly 50 percent rally over the last six months prevailed in the market, sending the S&P 500 below the psychologically important threshold of 1,000.

"The wall of worry that the market is trying to climb has gotten higher" into September, said Michael James, senior trader at Wedbush Morgan in Los Angeles.

"People started selling into good macro news since a few days ago, and that was accelerated today by a couple banks today," he said, adding that growing anxiety was creating major weakness in the market.

Sooo, banks dropped around 2-5% today,....wow.

Looking at the 100+% gains in capitalization value I have achieved in banking stocks since March, a little gas needs to be let out of that balloon anyway, before it continues to hike up.

Hey,... if YTD started at March, I know and expect a little correction to the downside to let off some steam,... but my long-haul numbers say, up.

I have bets out for a 12k DIA by end of year.

Now do you understand my comments about the "double dip" before the downfall? You don't run around the world buying up all kinds of commodities for no reason.
I will admit at first when I was following it I thought they where setting themselves up for a crash scenario. But the things they where buying up made no sense till right now.

China has set up everyone who could have gone against them in their bid to take over! The news of them allowing this coming out at this time is also NO MISTAKE!
It is September normally the worst month for any index as a whole. They chose to have it come out on Aug 31,2009 for a reason people. Most investors are sitting on the fence as far as the upcoming months business goes and guess what CHINA just pushed them off the fence. They are now running for the hills and there is no looking back.

I WILL guarantee you that if China follows thru with allowing their people to just walk away from all of the commodity crap bills they owe/OWN; WE WILL GO TO WAR.
In case you have been under a rock China was tramping around buying up all of the commodities they could get their hands on while the rest of the world was handing out bail outs hand over fist.
Now that it looks like the time is right they are going to allow MOST ALL of those purchases that have gone sour to be walked away from; they have the upper hand.
China is now the one holding the whole world hostage; WHEN they walk away and believe me they will! It will be all out war like we have never seen. (You honestly think it is a fluke that China has lost so much on their stock market in the preceding days? Someone had foreknowledge and tried to stop them.)

Oh yeah...I caught this a long time ago, doing the depression thread...

What better time to get the most value for all the dollars they hold, than in a depression, when prices are depressed...

You see how they are practically demanding Australia sell them commodities at a 30-60 percent discount?

...Of course the Banks are still up to their toupees in debt still...


Uh yep...

Ahh yes BUT it it really about getting the biggest bang for all those bucks they have?
Getting the BEST price for all of those companies and commodities they now own?
Or simply crashing all the companies they can; as fast as they can; before anyone has a chance to stand up?
If people look they will see that the companies they have bought into heavily are ones owned in countries where they are the staple of the economy. These some countries are the ones that have gone agaisnt China and Russia for that matter; on them being the ones in control.( This all do to the banks fudging up everything mind you. Those same banks that caused the upheaval in the economy.)
NOW they themselves are the ones who are going to be bringing down everyone who goes up against them. They have placed themselves very well in this little game they are playing! They have the world by the sack and well I am not looking forward to seeing where this goes in the days to come. The BRIC better be careful or they are going to get a handful of fist from a large amount of countries that they have bought into in an effort to gain control.
You know as well as I do that is the law of the land when it comes to things like this. What they are saying they are going to do is nothing short of declaring an all out war against the world.

I'd love to believe you, but I don't see much evidence supporting that. Are you going by spidey-cents like me, or do you have some info supporting that?

Stocks poised to tumble
Futures sink ahead of batch of economic readings, including existing home, auto sales.



U.S. stocks were poised to extend their previous session losses Tuesday, ahead of a slew of economic reports and amid worries about how quickly markets have risen in recent months.

At 8:12 a.m. ET, Dow Jones industrial average, Nasdaq 100 and Standard & Poor's 500 futures were modestly lower.

Futures measure current index values against their perceived future performance and offer an indication of how markets may open when trading begins.

Stocks tumbled Monday after another rout in Chinese stocks triggered a flight to safety worldwide. The Dow lost 0.5%, the S&P 500 fell 0.8%, while the Nasdaq composite shed about 0.9%.


So a pull back is expected, regarless of the "good news" during the summer.
