Watch Those Murder Holes

We’re back into crash mode. The Obama rally is over and The PPT is spitting out a strong sell rating on market technicals.

With my money, I’ve bulked the fuck up on a variety of downside plays. Howsoever, I did not sell BE Aerospace, Inc. [[BEAV]] , much to your chagrin. The inherent point of having a hedge is to be both long and short. So, as I bank coin in [[EEV]] , [[FXP]] , [[REW]] and [[SDS]] , I lose a little in BE Aerospace, Inc. [[BEAV]] , [[UYG]] , [[M]] , [[AYG]] —just to name a few.

See fuckers, the markets fate is not decided in one afternoon. Who knows, maybe the market goose steps higher tomorrow, amidst some really bad news.

My point is: do not get caught up in the emotions of the market. You must have iced cold ice flowing through your heart, in order to do bodily harm to trader/servant and make buckets of coin in this market.

Thus far, my only disappointment is the absurd strength in Petrohawk Energy Corporation [[HK]] . It’s sort of poetic, actually.

On the souls of all of my ancestors and the very foundation of what the coal industry was based on, “The Fly” will have his way with Petrohawk Energy Corporation [[HK]] , much to you oil/gas lovers egregious, and erroneous, chagrin.

    NY Fed hires former Bear Stearns chief risk officer

    NEW YORK, Nov 4 (Reuters) – The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has hired the former chief risk officer of Bear Stearns Cos, Michael Alix, to advise on bank supervision, according to a release in the Fed’s Web site.

    Alix will serve as a senior advisor to William Rutledge in the Bank Supervision Group and his appointment is effective Nov. 3, according to the release dated Oct. 31

    At Bear Stearns, an investment bank that collapsed in March and has become hallmark of the global credit crisis, Alix served as chief risk officer from 2006 to 2008 and global head of credit risk management from 1996 to 2006.

    Before that, he spent eight years at Merrill Lynch & Company (MER.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz).

    You traderboys are all a bunch of hacks. HK has a ton of the best new natural gas acreage in USA. THey are the no. takeover pick in the biz.

    You’re 60% up. Keep fucking around with these bets and you’re end up flat for the year. You’re best bet is to go home and let your wife slap your pussy ass around until january.

    Some big bulldozer buying S.O.B. porked on MOS after the open, and ran the thing up in a -150 down market from $40 to $43.16 this morning, in about 30 minutes time.

    Why would somebody buy all their shares like that, and step into a position? The stock went nearly straight up, and was quite harrowing to watch being short.

    Anyway, it’s back down in the $39’s, working it’s way back up.

    This must be a definite “Obama Bull Play)…..big boys buying in.

    Ok the only reason I can think for the Index charts being the exact same is the large amount of ETF’s being traded. It may pay to look for the worst stock in a good ETF or at least dont’t short the worst stock in a good ETF.

    As the new leader of the free world, I declare that my rally is not over. Not by any stretch of your cracka-ass imagination.

    I have summoned my inherent spiritual and natural powers to cause the markets to melt up. Just so that I may “spread the wealth”.

    Prepare to be debanked by my egregious tax policy. I also claim “egregious” as my own device now. You are herewith put on notice.

    “Change” is good.

    Michael Crichton: R.I.P.

    Many of his future history novels have medical or scientific underpinnings, reflecting his medical training and science background. He was the author of The Andromeda Strain, Congo, Disclosure, Timeline, State of Fear, Prey, and Next. He was also the creator of ER, but most famous for being the author of Jurassic Park, and its sequel The Lost World, both adapted into high grossing films and leading to the very successful franchise.

    Why does this feel like we might go re-test the lows on the Dow?

    What is going be the catalyst to take it higher?

    It feels rather negative to me.

    There are no jobs in the U.S. to pay back all this money through taxes, I know that.

    Politically, Crichton made you look like a cap-wearing ChiCom, Ginty. The closest he and Gore ever got were awkward moments on the tarmac waiting for their private jets to be refueled.

    But Al is about one beignet away from generating his own gravity.

    I know 40 is too cheap but the premium is the key to them on the offer. 65% premium is pretty good though. Personally I think we see 20 again before 40 but hey what do I know. Its a long term hold for me either way.

    FLY:
    I loved the EEV ultra long – I bought it yesterday after it closed down 17%…

    it hadn’t been that low since JULY 2008…

    it had been at these levels in 2007 before financials really blew up.

    WHAT A GREAT ENTRY POINT… This morning I sold some EEV to buy some FXP because FXP was only up 2% while EEV was up 11%.

    I made egregious profits by double dipping. It’d be silly to sell these ultra shorts over the mid-term.
