Global stock markets fell on Thursday amid continued concerns over Europe's efforts to stem its debt crisis. In Frankfurt the Dax index fell by 2.9%, while in Paris the Cac 40 index was down nearly 3.5%. Investors in London also suffered a fall in confidence with the FTSE 100 about 2.6% lower, while in New York the Dow Jones index opened 2.5% down.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel sparked investor fears on Wednesday by warning that the euro was "in danger". Germany also moved to ban a type of short-selling blamed for creating market instability.

But investors were unimpressed, with some expressing concerns that the persistent debt problems, sparked earlier this year by Greece, could push the global economy into another recession.

Sentiment among US investors was not helped by the news that new claims for unemployment benefits in the US rose to a three-month high of 471,000 last week. A fall in claimant numbers had been widely anticipated.

Ameritrade is down right now? I just got off the phone with them and they told me they are in "red alert right now." They don't know why they are down, and the guy I spoke with said he has never seen this happen before!

The DOW is going down, down, down.

The internet is working slow today, and my computers at work have gone down several times as well?

Where is ATS on this thing? Are we missing something?

Yeah. Because the market knows that the worldwide economy is screwed.

Less people will go on vacation this summer. No money. Less oil used.

For once speculation isn't screwing the prices on the upside artificially.

Examiner is not exactly a blog...???

Florida Gulf oil spill: Plans to evacuate Tampa Bay area expected to be announced

If this is true, then... America is truly besieged from south, oil spill (Brits) and alien immigrants (Mexicans). Evacuation next step?

This is more than serious situation.

Ouch...



WMR has been informed by sources in the US Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Florida Department of Environmental Protection that the Obama White House and British Petroleum (BP), which pumped $71,000 into Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign -- more than John McCain or Hillary Clinton, are covering up the magnitude of the volcanic-level oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and working together to limit BP's liability for damage caused by what can be called a "mega-disaster."

Obama and his senior White House staff, as well as Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, are working with BP's chief executive officer Tony Hayward on legislation that would raise the cap on liability for damage claims from those affected by the oil disaster from $75 million to $10 billion.


"volcanic-level oil disaster"

Interesting new thread on ATS

www.abovetopsecret.com...

www.truthout.org...

"A new earthquake" is what peasant farmer leader Chavannes Jean-Baptiste of the Peasant Movement of Papay (MPP) called the news that Monsanto will be donating 60,000 seed sacks (475 tons) of hybrid corn seeds and vegetable seeds, some of them treated with highly toxic pesticides. The MPP has committed to burning Monsanto's seeds, and has called for a march to protest the corporation's presence in Haiti on June 4, for World Environment Day.

Never follow the masses into a panic. Go opposite. In calm markets Tech. An is fine, fundamentals are fine.

Right now, fifteen before the close. Sell any long VIX ETF position you have. Take the gains. Buy long in any notable stock that went down significantly. Its a phschological oversold situation. Granted I would avoid RIG or BP but just about any other well known stock will bounce tomorrow or Monday.

Never risk more than you can afford to lose, this is a gamble, but the there is bond to be a rally if you can stomach the ride

LOL.

Yes it is.

And now the Canadian dollar is at 1.06! Nice. Time to go buy houses in Florida... kidding.

If only I lived near the border...
I would go buy gas there and food...

Obama is supposed to speak in about 20 minutes... The Senate will vote on the ``financial reform bill``... Goldman Sachs and Citigroup are for this bill, so you know how bad the bill is.

Maybe Obama will say that the senate must vote for the bill or that he's ordering the evacuation of the southern coast because of the oil spill, or declaring war with North Korea... who knows.


Or more awesome... Ban on NAKED SHORTING in the US...


Tomorrow is probably the most important day for the EU since it's creation.

IF GERMANY REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BAILOUT, IT'S OVER.
