1. I couldn't think of a generic title. This one sure works for the casinos.
2. I was evidently quoted in an article that is heavily syndicated on the interwebs as a financial industry "insider" regarding the coming impact of the lower G.I tract effluvium hitting the rapidly spinning rotors. Shhhh. Open the window. Listen. Do you hear that sound of distant, cacophonous laughter? Coming from the general direction of the Chicago metropolitan area? Yep. That's the entire futures industry howling with laughter. Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Although, all of my 9/11 Truther stalkers have informed me that I am, in fact, an undercover Joooooo, CIA, Mossad and Bilderberger agent. Because, you know, it is SO OBVIOUS that I am on someone's payroll. BWA-HA-HA-HA! Oh my gosh. Stop. You're killing me, Smalls. Seriously. I did exactly 37 half-turns today. I used to do five times that pretty consistently. But, I've spent the last year telling my cattle clients NOT to put on any short hedges. And, considering the cattle prices hit new all-time history-of-the-universe highs today, I'm feeling pretty darn good about that. But a financial industry "insider" I am not. My business is cattle, and I am OUTSIDE. Way, way outside.
3. Which leads to point 3. Seriously, if you guys are looking for someone to quote on the financial industry, specifically the mechanics of what is happening and why, you need to go over to Market-Ticker.org and contact Karl Denninger. He is at forefront of all of this, and has been for years. I've forgotten more about cattle than K.D. will ever know (aside from that unfortunate drunken incident when K.D. was in college - no charges were filed), but K.D. has forgotten more than I'll ever know about the broad financial markets.

Heck, in the past two years I've sen about 30 "set" dates for the collapse of the global financial system come and go.
Same old song and dance.
