Please excuse the title ATS. I just post them as I find them.

Lookout for the next couple of weeks if you have any stock or bond investments. The artificial Fed QE driven bloated markets are going to get (more) volatile in the days to come.

Raging Boehner Punctures Rally


It was all going so well... restating the same old news that Boehner would not end the world was working for a few more points every time and managed to get the S&P up to "shutdown" levels to run the stops. But then, reality hit...

    *BOEHNER SAID TO TELL MEMBERS HE WON'T PUT CLEAN CR ON FLOOR
    *BOEHNER SAYS 'THIS ISN'T SOME DAMN GAME'
    *BOEHNER SAYS HE HAS NO INTENTION OF `ROLLING OVER' ON SPENDING

And sure enough stocks start to tumble...


The Washington DC rhetoric game does more than make bad theater. It affects every person who has a 401K and retirement plan in the US. Not to mention international investors.

"Quick guys, I am about to say that the deadlock will continue into the new year, sell,sell, sell."

I bet politicians have excellent portfolios as they are keenly aware, dare i say, the direct cause of these types of fluctuations you have pointed out.

Yawn....Maybe buy up some stocks for end of the world preppers.

Stocks falling and Wall Street is po'd at the Republicans right now because they were prepared to cash in on Obamacare. Boehner and Cantor had better listen to the people whose money they have been taking over the years or they will be looking for new jobs after the election.

All due respect, but I do not pity those that still have money in this market.

After 2007-08, the housing bubble, the bank bailouts, the bonus payments, the derivitive time-bomb and the realization of massive trading done by automated algorythimic computer programs.....it is absolutely insane to even think about putting one single penny into this market.

As you highlighted, the market it as the whim of political shenannigans and posturing. I wouldn't want my money held hostage by any computer trading program or a corrupt politicain.

Tis madness I say......complete madness to invest anything right now.

The real victims of this political game of "let's shut down the government" are the employees of thousands of small businesses who rely on government contracts to supply goods or services. Welcome to FY14 Quarter 1, where none of these businesses are making the sales they had anticipated. These are the places who will be laying off employees based on not getting that projected income.

The bottom line is that the U.S. government is a major contributor to the national economy, and every day it's shut down, that economy hurts more. It doesn't hurt from the top, but Joe Blow who works for the company which expected to sell 30,000 units of gizmoratizmo in October, might just be in danger of being laid off.

That's understandable sentiment. Still many of the unsuspecting folks out there simply have no idea what's going on. I've tried to explain this to my eldest (in her 30's) and she could barely get her head around the financials of the US. Actually she didn't quite get it at all and diverting her 401K to herself in order to invest in hard assets was beyond her. *Sigh.

How exactly were they going to "cash in"??

Is anybody on this thread even looking at the market? Seems to me to be trending up for the day.

Yes, I keep up a bit on the market and finances.

The question you should be asking is WHY its up, considering the state of the economy and the dollar.

The markets are going to trend upwards until either 1) the Fed threatens to stop QE again or 2) someone does something or says something that causes a cascade failure that can't be stopped. Personally I think it will be the QE stoppage but never underestimate the stupidity of the herd mind. If someone says or does something bad enough (like a sovereign default) the markets are not going to be a place you want to be.

Just as Obamacare A.K.A. the ACA was forced upon the citizens through their "legislators", the govt. shutdown is being forced on us the same way. Tired of being held political hostage by these idiots???

Break away from the two party system and look at some people who can do some good rather than stalemate the legislative process. To be honest the very few (strong emphasis on few) decent people left in our government are found in the House. They're not all millionaires who are out of touch with the common man.

Now the Senate, that's a different story, those guys could give a rat's ass about the common citizen even when campaigning for reelection - it's nothing but broken promises, half-truths at best, and more commonly, just outright lies to appease their constituents. American politics have become nothing more than a farce.

When a company is expected to make money it's stock goes up. Obamacare makes everyone in the nation by medical insurance. This is a capitalist wet dream.

Obamacare was debated, voted and went through the Supreme court and made into law this shutdown was not. So the ones holding us as political hostages are the Tea Party because other members of the GOP want to end this shutdown.

Show me some politicians that are still in touch with the common man.

What makes me smile in this regard is that this is a forced financial event, but people still aren't buying.. I know I'm not regardless of everything, and if I get a penalty, they will have a tough time collecting when I no longer even file any taxes and claim exempt on my withholding.
I know quite a few that are doing exactly the same.

This is why they want everyone in the system with bank accounts and credit cards and such. This way the government can track your income and then finally ask you why aren't you paying taxes?

They are listening to their people, not listening to progressives is why they were voted in the first place.

For the first time in their career, I actually am satisfied with their job.

I always thought Boehner was the president's lap dog in disguise, now I'm happy he has grown a set.

Politicians throw rhetoric bombs around all the time. It's practically the only thing they do on a consistent basis. However with the Fed's QE pumping extravaganza, Wall Street over inflated to a ridiculous degree and US debt anything that effects T-Bill yields directly effects our debt repayments.

When looking at the possibility of a sovereign default within the US it is not the best idea to be throwing rhetorical firebombs around an entity (wall street) propped up by hope, prayer and fiat money.

It's not just Boehner who's guilty of this. The pres has been tossing a few around as well.

As far as not negotiating, well your list shows how many times the republicans have been hammered in the last few years. That makes them desperate and we know what happens when people get really desperate.
