Aha, finally I understand what is happening on Wall St

Human behavior and greed.

This rally is simply here to relieve investors' pent-up urge to buy and recreate an environment that will drag the maximum amount of money back into the losing vortex.

The desire to relive the "glory days" is so strong it overshadows the indeniable truth that the market can no longer ignore the reality of the poor economic outlook.

Doh! It is so clear now.

I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that investors are so out of sync with the real economy until I read this article.

The market has been climbing higher and higher while more jobs are lost, consumer sentiment is tanking and banks aren't lending. Despite companies not reaching forecasts for earnings ( almost 40% haven't met forecasts) investors keep buy more stock. HUH !!!

As the discrepancy between the stock market bull and the economy bear is becoming more pronounced, it won't be long before the market's action validates a Trend Change Alert. The bull and bear will not be able to peacefully cohabitate. The roar of continued economic deterioration will at last be heard, shaking stock prices and the market, like a bear shakes an apple tree.

then again....
maybe that's where that bailout money is going to...
one thing is for sure, it isn't going to the small businesses that need it to keep running.

See.. now Dawnstar understands what's happening on Wall Street.

Doesn't have anything to do with your average "investor" .. more so to do with hundreds of billions of Government funds being used to make a quick buck on the market. Just another economic Bubble that will, eventually, pop.

It has been confirmed by other news sources now that the
$134 billion in US bonds were likely real, and the japanese
men sneaking them around were likely japanese ministry of finance.

If that is true and they are trying to quietly dump them on the
market and other countries start doing it, we don't have long and
it is likely the trigger event for the Wall street journals mentioned
upcoming nationwide bank shutdown.

*** The two below say that the two japanese men stopped
with supposedly fake bonds were released...And if they
had been fake they would have broken the law and be
held on counterfeiting charges.
This says the japanese are dumping US bonds secretly
to get off the ship before it goes beneath the waves...

We saw a failure of the 5 year bond sale.

*** Below says US foreign Embassys are being told to horde
1 years worth of non-US currency due to a possible
lengthy banking shutdown.

Speaking of shutdown, 7 banks in one day went poof...

FDIC top level official says bank closures to increase 10 fold.

I can see why should would say that with near 2,700 banks being
rated D+ or lower.

Over 1,000 Trillion in derivatives are set to implode.

It all adds up to a messy situation where any one of these could trigger
one of the others, if you get two or more of these falling on us,
it could likely snowball and make it all come falling down.
