The Important Matter of Mother Market

“The Fly” started off his day waking up to the music of the Gods. He jumped out of bed and dove head first into his shower.

Following his rinse, he went for breakfast, which consisted of 5 pancakes, 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns and three cups of hot hot coffee. Immediately following his morning snack, he went to his office to watch the employment data results on CNBC.

Much to his delight, almost everyone lost their job in November! The futures tanked and his positions increased greatly in value.

Dressed in an all white robe, leather sandals, holding a blue can of Monster Energy Soda, he sat down at his desk and blogged like the wind. He told stories of tragedy, while chuckling, but by no means was he ever laughing. He threatened complete strangers, exclaiming with fury: “fuck a ham sandwich goat lover. I will punch your mustache off.” His day was off to a glorious start, indeed.

He even made it onto Twitter, in order to inform the 600+ idiots “following” him that their money would be his, very, very shortly. By no means was he kidding.

All was going according to plan, his plan, until noon.

As noon approached, his short positions, in banks and Chinese things, started to work against him. Earlier that morning, he sort of hedged a little, buying some stocks; but he quickly sold them—betting the market would, as it always does, “shit the shower.”

Time passed on and soon enough his trader/servant began to annoy him, making noises at his desk, drinking soda pop or snorting cocaine. Quickly, “The Fly” threw an orange at him and yelled “fuck you asshole.”

In a rage, he went to the internets, where he made some more idle threats to complete strangers. Much to his chagrin, he kept getting interrupted by pesky business acquaintances, via telephone calls, wanting to know what the market might do in the final hours of trade.

“The Fly” was annoyed by these questions, as his positions started to work against him. Luckily, he had a few hedges, from a few days prior. But it was becoming obvious, as well as evident, Mother Market had it in for him, on this day, Friday, December the 5th, 2008.

The comments on his blog quickly became deranged and idiotic, authored by anonymous goat lovers and/or fish face fuckers.

His heart began to race. His palms became sweaty. For fucks sake, he saw the market reversing right in front of his face, starting with banks/Chinese things, then eventually infecting his oil shorts.

By 2pm, “The Fly” was in full fledged retreat.

From 2pm to 3pm, wild and disturbing things occurred at “The Fly’s” office. These events were so heinous, so egregious, they cannot be repeated to anyone, without penalty of death and/or torture. Just know this, as the losses started to pile up, his mood changed from joyously jubilant to demonically dangerous.

By 3pm, it was clear to “The Fly” that his position was an outrageous losing one, not so much different than how Napoleon must have felt at Waterloo, or for that matter, any Southern army watching their homes being torched by Union patriots, back in the good old Civil War days.

He threw a ham sandwich at his trader servant and said “sell those fucking bastards now!!!”

The bellicose nature of his voice made the office plants die and the mirrors shatter. Quickly, the trader/servant started to book losses, and restructured to eliminate risk.

The market was about to close when the lights went out. “The Fly’s” office was as dark and cold as the sunless side of the moon. Suddenly, the marble paperweights on his desk began to tremble, amidst thunderous noise just outside of his office. Afraid like a little bitch, “The Fly’s” trader/servant ran for cover, hiding behind a filthy, disgusting trash can.

“The Fly” stood up, sword in hand, lightening in his eyes and yelled: “who goes there”? Without pause, he darted for the door, opened it up, ready for confrontation. Within seconds, a hideous gray haired woman, at least 9 feet tall, wearing a black robe, approached “The Fly” and said: “Guess who, fuck face”?

Shocked and amazed at the sight of this monstrous creature, “The Fly” became stunned, in a very “deer in headlight” sort of way. Things began to move in slow motion, as he saw this woman pull something from her robe. It was shiny and gold, and it fit around her bony knuckles.

For the love of little babies and currency, they were brass knuckles!

The next thing he saw was her clenched, brass knuckled, fist touch the ceiling, just prior to it quickly making its way for his nose.

Bloodied and semi-conscious, the last thing he heard was some bitch of a whore on CNBC celebrate the markets glorious green close, as Mother Market left “The Fly’s” office— drinking one of his Monster Energy Soda’s, she said: “See you monday, asshole (burpp).”

    In the hours since my own de-balling, it has occurred to my pea brain that the breakdown on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning was a monster (soda) headfake lower. The direction, at least through expiration in 2 weeks, is up. Santa Claus is here, motherfuckers, and he going to kick ass and take names in order to spread Yuletide cheer and other related fuckery.
    Going all in long before the open Monday. I just hope this low volume rally today isn’t another headfake…

    Damn. She punched your mustache off.

    The only thing working for me in this crazy market is my gut. If something feels comfortable in this market, it is time to get out of the position.

    Gio’s really saying the same thing with his VIX-watching, but he does it with cool thunderbolts instead of gas-filled intestines.

    I do think that SRS is at silly levels here, possibly on the way to even sillier levels. I’m buying. It is damn volatile for somebody who can’t watch screens all day, so I tend to hold for lengthy periods and sell calls on the shares. I miss out on the parabolic moves to $300, but manage to collect a nice premium from those anticipating the next parabolic rise. I probably pulled in $80-100/share in premiums on the SRS and SKF I finally let go of at November expiration.

    If anyone can please forget about those declining MA’s, remember that when this bullshit rally started, the S&P was shooting towards 1,176. 1,176 is still a bullshit possibility.

    Had The Fly not taken his beating today, he would have been drip drop Chinese things Water Tortured into losing all of his proceeds.

    The Fly said “Your Accounts Will Go to Zero, Soon”. His did not and lots of idiots will have by mid-January.

    Bit on the head-fake but didn’t foul the fucker on the way up. Nice play, The Fly.

    ———

    DevilDog .. the long sought after and oft-called ‘intermediate’ bottom is IN. We may hit your targets, but before we do, we also may stage one of the most egregious anal/skull-fucking rallies any bear has experienced, ever.

    Seriously, and I mean this with all sincerity; be prepared to die the most undignified death; an abu ghraib sendoff, if you will.

    Really dude, fuck your convictions, you may get fucked holding on to them, like you never have before.

    As Tim the Enemy, Knight said yesterday: (and he was talking about you, the DeviledDog)

    “But the cold fact is this………and those heavily “committed”, take heed………just about the worse imaginable economic news was issued this morning, and the market has flipped from down hard to up big.

    Anyone who has studied the markets at all knows this is a powerful indicator of higher prices to come.

    A bear could not have wished for “better” news this morning, but it looks like the markets are going to end in the green today (I am typing this 70 minutes before the close). Take heed and respect the facts before you.”

    Short-Term Geocosmics

    The principles associated with Uranus will be in full display during the next 1-2 weeks. On Friday, December 5, the Sun formed a conjunction to Mars in the potentially explosive sign of Sagittarius. From December 10 through December 15, both the Sun and Mars will form a square to the Saturn-Uranus opposition (T-square). This is known as a “translation” of the faster moving bodies (Sun and Mars) to the longer-term planetary cycle (Saturn in opposition to Uranus). If the last year is any guide, we should expect a sudden downturn in the equity markets, either going into the aspect, or right as it begins. How long the downturn will last is anyone’s guess. The last time we had such a translation was when Venus translated by square to the Saturn-Uranus opposition, the day before the U.S.A. Presidential Election (November 3). That was a high in the stock market that has not been seen since. In fact, many equities markets plummeted to new multi-year lows from November 4 through November 21. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, for instance, fell from 9654 to 7449 in those two weeks. It could happen again, especially if there is some sudden surprise event that rocks the world. With Uranus, you never know what the event will be, but only that it is sudden and perhaps shocking. Uranus rules earthquakes, but in these aspects, it also rules terrorist attacks, accidents, and maybe fires. Do not expect things to unfold according to plan these days. It is a not a time to achieve consensus with world leaders. It is a time that suggests disputes and disagreements, so maybe it is a good idea that lawmakers take off for the holidays. Otherwise they may say and do things they regret almost immediately. On the positive side (yes, there is also a positive antidote), it can enhance brilliant, innovative thought.

    My sides split laughing at that piece, but:

    At least Fly has some kind of Stop Loss procedure and he lives to fight another day. But reading these threads Im stunned at the lack of discipline and structure of the trading of many.

    Commitment is great. But useless without money management.

    I wonder if most people are simply doing this as some kinda expensive hobby, rather than actually banking coin.

    That’s absolutely one of Fly’s best, ever. Kindofa Night Before Christmas tone, staged in hell, produced by Marvel Comics. I think this was the episode where cosmic tragic accident instills curious superpowers on the unwitting hero-to-be. Time-machine goggles, super-rubber twist-o-logic, golden-knuckle-whammo-trading powers, etc.

    The sage economists at Northern Trust have another, albeit rather more dry, tale of adventure discussing the BoE’s rate cut last week:

    “The last time rates were this low was back in 1951; at 2.0%, the policy rate is now effectively equal to its lowest since the BoE was founded in 1694”

    …pause, while you read that again.

    How’s that for historical feel? TBT+patience keeps looking better to me. Economy trashed-> bailouts-> quantitative easing -> inflation -> interest rates++

    It looks increasingly inexorable to me. Long or short along the way? A couple quarters of deflation? another 1% off 30yrs for a month or two? Only Mother Market knows. But who cares about her? I’ll side with Father Time.

    No one with a brain is short anymore. The breakout is commencing and the new bull market is here. It’s very obvious that the worst news is behind us. The market has been great at pricing in the future news and all bad news, whatever it may be, is priced in. The market right now is the buy of our lifetimes. I would especially buy banks, auto companies, plastic and furry boot shoe companies, and airlines. In six months:

    -there will be no cars on the car lots
    -there will be new car dealerships sprouting up across the country
    -your local Coach store will be out of purses
    -there’ll be a 2 year wait to get a builder to build you a new house
    -oil will be $200/bbl
    -FXI and EEM will be over $100/share
    -people will laugh about the days when DevilDog would proclaim gloom and doom

    Hey there Fly.

    I’m shocked that you haven’t figured out that Friday will have an upward bias until the taxpayer-funded blowjob for the car industry is announced.

    Every piece of Congressional fellatio for your financial overlords, has taken place on a SUNDAY… for maximum effect on financial markets: that way CNBC and Bloomberg cockgobblers can start their Monday babble with “Asian markets rose strongly as omnipotent US regulators took steps to create Rainbow Unicorns that shit Mars Bars and piss Mountain Dew”.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but your trader/slave should be forced to wear the Gimp suit for six weeks as punishment for failing to point out that shorts cover on Fridays because they fear the Sunday Surprise.

    Madame Market is “Mr Hanky” Paulson’s Sunday Slut… it’s as simple as that.

    Next week – we are all fucking doomed; the car bailout will go up another $10billion or so, and GM etc will rally once Congress applies the chap-stik and drops to its knees … but it will be sold. (I took the same view of the $700billion bailout when it was ‘rejected’… (a) that the political parasites would drop to their knees, and (b) it would be 5-6 trilion in final cost.

    Bonds ought to break down as well. Of courser I WOULD say that, since my sphincter is smarting at the moment due to bonds – ZB is trying to give me the GBDUV… GatorAde Bottle of Doom Up the Vord.

    its funny how everyone got bullish.
    im not going to say that monday is going to be bearish day, ..i dont know.
    but think of it, what happened yesterday was kind of odd.

    what if we get and odd monday?

    in my humble and unexpirienced opinion,
    the data for next week is going to be somehow benevolent,this may go higuer.
    and even tough the s&p its on the verge of a breakout, we will see some profit taking at the beggining of the session and then tough resistance to get past friday´s levels.

    opinions? insights?

    Why thank you Sir Fly for the fine compliment.

    And Damon – wow – those both come as shockers to us all – long or short. I hadn’t heard a thing about a big stimulus plan – that’s a great idea! And the automakers are going to get their cash, I can’t believe it! The bad news is all priced in, but none of this good news is. The only question is how high we gap up – 500 or 1000 dow pts. Oh, I’ll take 750 – you want the over or under?

    When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .

    The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

    It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.

    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    ‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’

    Secondly, rallies are not born in December. We may follow through on monday. But, in my opinion, these rallies should be sold into.

    Upside target for the Dow is 9200-9500. But, and you will mark my words, January will be an abysmal month for the exchanges.

    I posted on Ragins latest gas missive but it got erased for some odd reason.

    Basically, there are now articles predicting one dollar gas. The decline is over, but for a few pennies, a nickel or a dime. Buy UGA.

People that think worst news is best news will change their opinion this coming week once they ponder over the weekend and realize that this bad news – unemployment – is bad news and bad news only. No money to buy cars, homes or even inexpensive coffee. And no one is going to rush back next month and hire this same 530K people back on their payrolls. Enjoy the rally while you can…

    To Thomas Jefferson:

    re: that quote about inflation and deflation… as I understand it, that quotation is apocryphal – there is no evidence that Jefferson ever said it or wrote it.

    He said the bit about central banks being more dangerous to liberty that standing armies – that’s true. But the last two-thirds of the paragraph – while perfectly reflecting Jefferson’s views – apparently dates from much later.

    If I am wrong on this, please met me know. I would be very glad to be wrong, because it encapsulates everything I believe about the central banks and political parasites that infest the global economy.

    It’s a bit like the Voltaire quote that goes something like “I may disagree with every word you say, but would give my life to defend your right to say it”… Voltaire never said or wrote that.

    I just read it. Three points.

    1. You shouldn’t be reading anyone’s blog who goes by the name of Tim. Tim is a gay name.

    2. I don’t know who he is, but I’ll take Fly’s word for it that he’s basically a moron primarily because of point one. I used to beat up people in the school yard that went by that name. Only Donny is worse as a name especially if they refer to themselves in the third person. Even if innocent such people should be put up and convicted on rape/incest charges.

    3. His comment isn’t bad for someone called Tim. It’s a little gay, but not badly thought out.

    The Pakistani High Commissioner in London, Wajid Shamsul Hassan, says India was ready to launch a military strike on Pakistan in retaliation for the Mumbai terror attacks, Sky News reported.

    Hassan said British and American officials had to intervene to prevent India from carrying out an attack.

    “On the day of the Mumbai attacks, I got some information in London that India was going to act very drastically against Pakistan in retaliation to what happened,” Hassan told Sky News.

    The senior diplomat alerted the Pakistani government and President Asif Ali Zardari to the threat.

    Why stocks have been gyrating and gold weak:

    http://seekingalpha.com/article/109210-the-manipulation-of-gold-prices?source=article_sb_popular

    “Gold buying enthusiasm, everywhere but at the COMEX, is at record levels, whereas stock market investing appetite is low. For this reason, when the Fed tried to constrict the money supply on Monday, it caused more damage to the stock market than to the price of gold. Gold declined by over 5%, but the S&P 500 collapsed by over 9%. The next day, the Fed eased up on the money supply spigot, allowing the dollar to fall and the stock market to reflate.

    If the Fed repeats this performance over and over again, stock investor psychology will be seriously harmed. Withdrawals from mutual and hedge funds will accelerate. The stock market will sink at an uncontrollable rate, and the world will surge onward toward Great Depression II, much worse than the first.

    At some point, there will be nothing the Fed can do about it, no matter what manipulations it attempts. Hopefully Ben Bernanke is aware of the dangerous nature of the game he is playing.”

    What a miserable week I had. My oil trust sank to unbelievable lows, I bought FAZ mid week only to see it crash and I lost 1800 on that trade. Thursday 5 minutes before closing I bought TNA and BGU only to panic with the horrible unemployment news as I watched these two stocks go down early morning…and sold both at a loss totaling 600.00 Then only to buy the shorts (TZA) as there was no FRACKIN WAY the market would rally on 5000 + job losses ….only to see the shorts tank..and lose another 800.00. Then to add salt to my wounds watch my original TNA(that I sold early) blast out to the moon in a rally end of the day.

    Pisser…..Crapola, those x3 will be the death of me yet. WHO rallies on the most horrible news? I guess if the market rallies on this news…the TURN HAS COME. Some ‘ old wise person’ I read in a trading book said,’when markets rally on the worse news it means a bull run”. OK So Monday I am going for the Bull….I did buy about 3 minutes before closing my TNA back that I originally had for 7 dollars cheaper -now have at 29.09 including fees. If that sucker goes down instead of up, I will be manic…the way this bull ran on Friday I think things will continue to go up on Monday morning and take out new highs before possibly having a pull back later during the day. I think the momentum is there for some new highs to continue. I am so glad to see that MR FLY had as much of a depressing day as I did. I’ve lost 45% of my portfolio since summer…God do I need help….but I dont feel so totally stupid after reading this blog. Mr Fly gives me comfort. 🙂

    More than 160 US, NATO vehicles burned in Pakistan

    By RIAZ KHAN, Associated Press Writer Riaz Khan, Associated Press Writer 3 hrs 5 mins ago
    PESHAWAR, Pakistan – Militants torched 160 vehicles, including dozens of Humvees destined for U.S. and allied forces fighting in Afghanistan, in the boldest attack so far on the critical military supply line through Pakistan.

    The American military said Sunday’s raid on two transport terminals near the beleaguered Pakistani city of Peshawar would have “minimal” impact on anti-Taliban operations set to expand with the arrival of thousands more troops next year.

    However, the attack feeds concern that insurgents are trying to choke the route through the famed Khyber Pass, which carries up to 70 percent of the supplies for Western forces in landlocked Afghanistan, and drive up the cost of the war

    I stand corrected. – it was Saturday (rather than Sunday as I surmised) when the Congress started to lube up the taxpayer anus for another session of reaming.

    And the cunning fucks are trying to jawbone by pretending they’re only giving the ‘Big Three’ (losers) half of what they asked for. The next $50 billion will come after Jan 20th – again, with the claim that they’ll be profitable by the end of next week, and will produce hybrid rainbow unicorns that shit mars bars and piss Mountain Dew.

    Asian markets will open with a ‘pop’, but as I often say, fade that shit. Any nuffie orgasm will be temporary… all the dyed-blonde-autocue-reading in the world can’t save this market.

    The question everyone should be asking is WHO IS NEXT (for bailouts). Homebuilders? Airlines? Luxury handbag makers? Child prostitute vendors perhaps. After all, child-whore pimps are VITAL for the weekend antics of politicians; Washington would melt in a frenzy of unsatisfied deviant libido if the US political class were unable to get their wild on with kiddies on a regular basis (killing them by remote control is almost as satisfying, but they really prefer to anally rape them first).

    Cheerio

    Anyone here an SnP futes basis trader? Just had a quick question if anyone is.

    Also, anyone know what type of cigarettes our next President smokes? Just wondering if other “Hypnotized Obama Manics” will start a trend?

    Finally fuck FXP, I am out of this whore. After doing more work this weekend it looks like its a losing trade no matter which way you look at it. I will not be using that vehicle again. I will use the 3x direction ETFs though, if you watch them closely there is a spread to be captured 😉

    Top Pick: 6 month play on DXO long right here right now. Set it and forget it.

    psdt.

    Columbia.. wiht a u , its a place somewhere in the u.s.
    Colombia wiht an “o”. its a country in south america where i live .

    bankcoin related.
    -the crisis its coming here but not soon, (very healthy financial sector, but at risk because 10% of the population got into ponzi schemes with bank loans )

    -stock market down 25% this year, but was the second in growth in 2006. (volume is so low it will scare you)
    -interest rates are really high , 30% a year for a loan and you get 7% after a year on your deposit.

    -hot women everywhere.(that off course includes my girlfriend)
    -75% of the country is safe. you have more chances of being killed in washington dc than in any of the important cities of colombia.

    -only .003% of the 44 million population works on the cocaine business

    -20% of the population its below poverty line
    -juan valdez wants to buy starbucks now that it is cheap.

    Hey Colombia Guy- You play any golf? I have watched Julieta Granada (from your country) play as a junior and my son played with Manuel Villegas (Camilo’s brother) in a tournament awhile back.

    Fuck Rally…. We have states running out of money ? Market Rallies ? Fine GM saved from bancruptcy for 10 billion… Now California is getting a loan, that sounds like things are getting much better.

    no paychecks = no fed/state/RE or if you want go further much less now being paid into social security.. I can only but laugh. When our country cant get a bid on bonds to generated money than who will we get a loan from ? China hahaha

    Ever hear of PRINTING money? That makes stocks and gold and house prices and the dollar value of pension plans go UP, and the real value of our DEBT fo down.

    of course like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I will surely come again again.
