How this news for starters,

Senate Approves Stopgap to Keep Federal Government Running

The government has been very adamant to raise the debt ceiling, but is going to be at a cost.

After all what message will that send to our debt holders oversea, that our economy is not what it seems?

But we know better, rigth?

LOL. The financial media have a hard time to convince the small but populous investors that opening and keeping investment accounts with various funds is a smart thing to do and that all investments are made according to the best judgement. But the truth is that the markets are becoming more detached from the realities and taken over by a few investment giants setting their own criteria. The strategy is simple: get more and more small investors into the game and take their money.

The oil prices kind of dipped hitting $66 for a reason stated by the financial media. Within a couple of days, oil regained its footing and went up again. This time, the financial media just couldn't comment, coz the markets were descending due to worries about the economy. Of course, the oil traders had a different opinion. LOL.

What is that Dow Jones "worth" based on the economy performance?
What kind of dumb question is that? There is no formula that can tell you that, and even if there was, it wouldn't be used. Just hit the little greedy folks with better-than-expected news and when the piggy bank has a desirable weight, it's time to turn it upside down.
For how long?
Oh, there is a very sophisticated formula for that. Mr. Goldman keeps it in his safe.

Dow down over 200 now,

Well I guess Bernanke glim outlook for the economy didn't bore well with investors.

So, I guess the green shoots were never green at all but in the imagination of those cheerleaders in the financial.

But hey we knew about this all along

Common Bernanke the markets needs its weekly infusion of cash, but I think this time it needs is yearly bailout again.

The financial are screaming "Where is our fall bailout", after all Obama is getting ready to get the financial one more boost.

WE are in deep do-do people but how deep I will no dare to even imagine.

That is the first 200+ point down day we have seen in the Dow in a long time.
My bottom target for the Dow was 9550 and we broke through that on the Bernanke statement. Might be a good time for the FAZy bears to take some profits since they are up over 20% if they shorted the 9900.

That is ok, Bernanke wants to turn the fed into the regulators of the world

I wonder what China will have to say about that.

They fed crashed the markets and they want to take care of the world.

I called Mr. Goldman regarding Dow's trip from 9.7k to 9.5k. The reason was that there is 9.6k in between and the Dow skipped this mark. The orderly descend goes 7, 6, 5 and not 7, 5.

Mr. Goldman said that 6 doesn't exists anymore, so that's why the Dow went down from 9.7k to 9.5k today.

6 doesn't exist anymore? What kind of nonsense is that?

So I carefully asked Mr. Goldman about that, but he called me "ignorant monkey" who doesn't read the financial news.

Will anyone mourn Saturn?

It transpired that Mr. Goldman only read the headlines regarding the demise of Saturn. He thought that the 6th planet was gone, and since there is no 6, Mr. Goldman decided to manipulate the Dow's descend accordingly: from 9.7k to 9.5. It was just a misunderstanding, and he said that he puts the Dow back to 9.6k ASAP.

Like I said yesterday, somebody in CNBC dared to said that we are to fall more and more before the year is over, yes this analyst said that in the news.

I guess he knows what he is talking about, today the guess in CNBC are trying to figure out where in the government reports about the economy they may have made a mistake give me a freaking brake.

But that is OK, the cheerleaders came back to make things better and tell everybody that we are going to get better.

But when asked when they see the growth or from where it was coming they all gaged on their on words

Got to love CNBC.

JP morgan is not looking so hot today.

FDIC FOIA Discloses Pandit Future Could Promptly Converge With That Of Ken Lewis

It was immensely refreshing to find an actual probing piece of investigative journalism coming out of Reuters, instead of the traditional regurgitated, opinion-based, fluff-filled, secondary source monologues (we prefer the British spelling) we have become accustomed to seeing out of the Thomson Reuters behemoth.

In a rare example of how even the MSM gets it right sometimes, Matt Goldstein has done an admirable job of connecting the dots based on a FOIA request he had submitted to the FDIC, in which the insolvent (as of Be today) Deposit Insurer has provided Goldstein with a unique glimpse into the daily travails and activities of its boss, Sheila Bair, and how they may have a direct bearing on the future of none other, than a very troubled Chief Executive Officer.

From Goldstein's "Bair's summer in the Citi"

And just fer's Nikkei last night...

So despicable, what is going on and people still doesn't have a clue about the crap coming from the financial and the government.

BofA will be bailed from their toxic assets out I bet the Obama administration with its own senator and now vice president for the BofA will get that tax payer and private investors bailout.

I don't know, you think the bad news about the unemployment will make the markets green?

yes is always somebody betting on bad news.

A lot has been hanging on Friday's jobs report, expected to show a decline in September of about 200,000 non-farm payrolls and an unemployment rate of 9.8 percent. However, prominent Goldman Sachs economist Jan Hatzius now thinks that number may be worse than previous expected and he revised his forecast Thursday, rattling an already jumpy stock market.

"What's happening is the economic data is turning weak again, and people are saying, 'here's the W,' said Art Cashin, director of floor operations at UBS.

But that is ok, is just a correction again.
