The banks are gambling playing investing in the stock market with our debt derivatives hedge funds money.

Weeeeeee !


Did you know that the entire stock market is a gamble? Kinda neat huh?

This is kind of how you get a higher return on your money.



Or crash and burn ?
Kinda neat huh ?

Did you know that the stock market is just numbers on a piece of paper and holds no physical monetary value ?
Kinda neat huh ?

Did you know that the banks hold the entire economic monetary marketing system in their hands ?
Kinda neat huh ?

Did you know that banks used to just be oversized piggy banks where people entrusted their hard earned monies ?
Kinda neat huh ?


Not true at all...Go ahead and purchase a couple oil futures and not sell it and wait for the delivery to your doorstep.

My husband heard on the radio that not only is oil treated as a commodity, but so is gasoline.

So, sometimes when gas prices go up for no apparent reason, it could be gas commodities creating a shortage.
They're in it for the money and would rather sell and ship to another country for a better price, than keep the gas refined in the US in the US for use in the US.

I believe that when gas commodities go up heating oil goes down. The trick is to sell one short while buying the other long when the prices are close than do the reverse when prices get further apart.

That is day trading 101

No ?

Go ahead and purchase a couple of oil "futures", wait for an economic breakdown and then try to sell it and see what gets "delivered to your door". Or any other commodity for that matter.

There's a reason why big business boys were jumping out of 20 story windows when they learned that their "assets" weren't worth the paper it was written on at the end of the day.

It's a numbers game and only a numbers game.

When the system decides it's time for another crash in order to give the game a new facelift in hoping that it can continue to scratch its way through another 50 years of continued numbers exchanging, anyone caught in it is up a creek without a paddle.

The banks are attempting a big cash grab in the hopes of procuring what little is left before it all comes tumbling down in the very near future. The "banks" meaning it's shareholders... cashing in on their dividends just in the knick of time. They'll know exactly when it's time to pull, but you won't. The shareholders will then sit back smoking their stogies and sipping their scotch while they allow their banking corporations (aka: you) to take the fall and suck up the liability.

It's corporate game play at its best.

The "banks" (shareholders) know it and those of us working in the finance industry know it.

The USA is bankrupt (or haven't you heard ?)... but that's not the word they prefer to use, you know, because it sounds all harshlike. The fallacious price of oil is not going to save its butt. It's "the banks" driving an "investment" market... draw in everyone thinking "Oh looky ! The banks are investing in oil ! That's what we need to jump in on !"
