    the rally- my head still spinning-

    fabricated non-sense- reality will prevail-

    and the market will again show us the ugliness that is this economy for many years to come

    @ahab — check this out — you head will spin so fast it will helicopter right off your shoulders …


    … and this …


    If there isn’t a sign of Impending DOOM in those two links, then I really have taken the wrong color pill.

    Ditts that R. Griess has the dope charts.

    When I look at the mild correction (9%) sandwiched between two bad ass rally’s (42 and 20%) it screams to me that the tape is overbought… or that we’re about to sky rocket even higher.

    I find the latter a bit lacking in technical justification at the moment, for whatever reason fundamentally.

    As per our discussion on Singer’s dow chart from earlier this week, I cant but help see the March lows as a likely Left Shoulder on a much larger Inverse Head and Shoulders pattern… foretelling potential equity doom… and incidentally, the greatest potential buy entry for a long ever there was.

    Crazy the permeation of the H&S, replicated to infinity… in a fractal sense… across the weekly, daily, hourly, and 15 min charts. Just crazy shit.

    Oh well, back to Humboldt County’s Reggae JamDown internet radio stream from Big Up Radio… and making the most insane pico de gallo this side of the Rio Grande. My hands are burning from prepping the “Hot” batch earlier. Gotta love the habanero/ thai hot combo. With some Milagro Reposado margaritas later… Labor Day irieness.

    thx for the charts-

    looks to me like a huge sell signal-

    if that doesn’t clue someone in- they deserve to lose their money-

    much akin to Brokaw saying on NBC evening news- how high can the Nasdaq go- when the index was sitting around 5000-

    that was a clue to sell right then, right there

    Yikes look out here it comes trouble for bubble US economy….

    China alarmed by US money printing
    The US Federal Reserve’s policy of printing money to buy Treasury debt threatens to set off a serious decline of the dollar and compel China to redesign its foreign reserve policy

    Top Chinese official signals move away from dollar

    That ‘hot batch’ sounds fine…

    Brah, whatever you do, don’t casually wipe your eye…

  8. Pat G. says:

    Quite frankly, since I don’t own a single stock I don’t worry about swings in the markets that list them.

    @ km4

    China has been doing some saber rattling over the dollar for some time now. Then they buy Treasuries, albeit not as many as they used to. It’s time for them to shit or get off the pot. Actually, I hope it is the former. It may be our only hope of saving our currency from those miscreants in D.C. Now, before you all start posting about how that would be like China cutting their own throat, remember this; investors eventually sell their losers too. They take those losses when they 1) perceive that their investment will never be worth what they originally paid for it and 2) perceive that holding onto it could be substantially more painful in the future. In other words, take your hit and cut your losses
