You are right and no forget that it makes American debt more attractive to our debt holders and buyers, I wonder when the auction block is going to be in effect for the sell of our debt.

Now has anybody heard anything about China and what they are thinking about the mess that is going on with the Euro?

I can not find anything coming from China

Did they lost so much money that they are speechless . . .

Bloomberg was down for a few minutes there, looks like it's back up.

You'd think the PPT would be keeping their porn in the background this morning after yesterdays sell off. They'll be along any time now.

P.S. You should have taken that bet the other day HX, it was easy money.

My conspirator mind immediately thought (MANIPULATION) as soon as i found out the dow dropped 1000 points and then picked back up...

then i just read a thread (front page now) that there was a vote to split the banks up.....

Guess DC is being held hostage.... again!

this is scary..

I dont know if i should throw on my shades and watch the fireworks, or... not pay attention to it at all.

A littler more on the inconsistent numbers between job growth and job loses This sound like an oxymoron

But then again our government thinks most Americans are morons to Begin with and easily manipulated.

Lost in the media mess of the oil spill and stock drop is news that American employment grew yet again in April. According to Bloomberg News, the economy added 290,000 jobs in April 2010. This is by far the best monthly job performance in the U.S. in almost four years.

Unfortunately, as the president’s Republican opposition is sure to point out, the 290,000 new jobs also coincided with a slight increase in unemployment from 9.7 to 9.9 percent.

Surprises, surprised . . .Is the government using the same tactics that Wall street uses for futures trading in Job employment calculations?

The reason that unemployment can grow while the economy also creates jobs has everything to do with how our statistics are calculated. First off, the percentage rate of unemployment is “seasonally adjusted”; meaning the government makes estimates about the number of jobs that should be available. With summer fast approaching the number of jobs available will increase, and the number of theoretically available positions slightly outpaced the 290,000 actual jobs being added.

Somebody is working hard to make the government look good for the coming midterm elections.

You can prop up numbers all you want. They will always fluff up the market by ignoring the bad, and post only good news (Or state that the bad is really good, and say nice things.... while its in the red...)

Uh... ignoring negatives doesn't make them go away!

So it looks like 1090 is where the big players are sitting

I am guessing it will be very tough to crack this again

Notice where my computer couldn't even handle the volume and the real time chart just jumped..

Volume spike there.. will be hard to break

Actually contrary to popular belief HX stepped in at Dow -950 and put his foot down and lifted every offer on the book.

Hopefully I will be able to unload before he drops the hammer in the pits

DJIA +19.58

How funny, after yesterday CBS has decided to dedicate a live satellite feed to the board on the NYSE. I'm currently watching "Ticker TV"

I guess they wanted to be able to use their computer screens for more personal things after all.

Hey, maybe I'll be able to TIVO the end of the world.

VIX Explodes As Attempts To Fix Broken Market Fail

The market is now irreparably broken - if you are trading your own money today, or in the near-future you will lose it, and you can thank the SEC, the NYSE, dark pools, Goldman and all the other "liquidity providers" and market makers. The damage control by the mainstream media has failed. The European bailout has failed. The Nonfarm number was a failure, despite Obama's attempt to spin it favorably. The entire bear market rally is finally being seen for the sham scam we have said it was from the very algo-manipulated beginning. So is it any surprise that the VIX is now double where it was a few days ago. All those who sold calls on the VIX are getting carried away in bodybags, the only question is whether the decimation there is worse than among the ranks of the carry traders. At this rate the market is likely going to close near the stop limit positions in the 1,050 range, which will push traders over the weekend to take weapons grade doses of Xanax. Alternatively, mutual and pension fund idiot money will simply sell.

Actually this month was the strongest monthly gain for manufacturing since... 1998 I believe.

213,000 of the jobs came directly from the private sector (according to these stats anyways) ..

All around, it actually looked like a good report.. I can't really make sense of how when we loose jobs unemployment declines, we gain jobs and unemployment goes up. But that's the logical thinking our Government employs. The rise in unemployment had more to do with "discouraged job seekers heading back into the market to look for jobs" .... love to know how they count that.

U6 remains near 20%.
