lately we quite often come across articles that explain why the market cannot go down, no matter what (here is a recent example that reminds us a bit of the “keiretsu argument of stock market invulnerability” that was popular in Japan in the late 1980s). [PT]

1987—Too many investors tried to obtain “insurance” by selling index futures at the same time, which pushed S&P futures to a vast discount vs. the spot market. This in turn triggered selling of stocks and concurrent buying of futures by program trading operations – which put more pressure on spot prices and in turn triggered more selling of futures for insurance purposes, and so on. The vicious spiral produced a one-day loss of 22.6% – today this would be equivalent to a DJIA decline of almost 5,000 points. Due to circuit breakers introduced after 1987, very big declines will lead to temporary trading halts nowadays (since 2013 the staggered threshold levels are declines of 7%, 13% and 20%; after 3:25 pm EST the market is allowed to misbehave as it sees fit). Interestingly, program trading curbs were scrapped again. We mention the case of 1987 because we believe today’s markets will eventually be faced with a “positive feedback loop” problem as well. 

Many new trading strategies and products that have become popular during the Bernanke/Yellen echo bubble era have yet to be truly stress tested.

THIS PART IS OF INTERESTI LIKE HOW HE LINKS IT TO THE PORTFOLIO INSURANCE OF 1987===There are numerous new systematic strategies (almost all of which use leverage in some shape or form), there are now more listed ETFs and ETNs than listed stocks, high frequency trading is responsible for a very large share of trading volume, and open derivatives positions have grown extraordinarily large relative to trading volume in the underlying cash instruments. Market volatility has all but disappeared over the past 18 months or so, but this is reminiscent of a pressure cooker. It seems highly likely that lot of “pent-up volatility” will eventually be unleashed (there is a very good reason to expect this to happen; extended periods of low volatility tend to go hand in hand with the gradual buildup of ever larger speculative positions which depend on its continuation; and this is usually accompanied by a steady increase in leverage with the aim of boosting returns. As an aside, lately we quite often come across articles that explain why the market cannot go down, no matter what (here is a recent example that reminds us a bit of the “keiretsu argument of stock market invulnerability” that was popular in Japan in the late 1980s).

Remember McCully Chop Sui on King Street?  Eating there one cool and rainy evening.  Full house.   The door swung open a crack in the wind and a determined cat pushed in and made a beeline under the tables across the floor to the kitchen.  The whole place went silent for a moment as everyone saw it.  Then someone muttered in a low voice,  “That’s the last we’ll see of that one.”

Everyone continued eating.

The place closed several years back when the owner retired… tired of cooking.  But it was the best Chinese food around.  Sen. Dan Inouye would frequent the place when he was home.  Met him there once, greeting everyone in the restaurant.  Class act.

Let’s Have Chinese

I’m having trouble with the site. Keep having to log in or get some not and have to add numbers.
Yes they are a waist of tax payers money. You can use them apparently but their still loud. No matter people aren’t usually going to react expect maybe police and vets until they know their being shot at. They probably would heat up and can get jammed anyways. Even semis. I bet their after semis next because they can be changed to automatic rhetoric. In the meantime teaching people how to do it.
I blame the Demos and the sub group anarchists for this. I blame their mouths filled with hate lies and propaganda for causing this. They even admitted it although one got fired saying they were glad because probably Trump supporters.
They won’t tell the Truth because they don’t want to be blamed for being part of it. Even when they start preaching their anti gun rehtoric it gives the left something to react to. They and the likes of people like Hillary is causing it.
I doubt those freaked out kids in that taxi video were Trump supporters wanting to be driven around ” for free” like it was her fault or supposed to be there for them. I would of dropped their asses off and told that guy with the fake broken leg to get out and went back to get the injured and not cared which party. So not all were and even if there were what does that say about them? They want more than half the legal population to be murdered? Yes they are responsible.

I WAS picking on those who have quit and left, because I cannot hurt their feelings. They’re gone!! As far as getting no response to your posts I am probably the “winner of the forum” in that regard too. Very seldom do I get a response, probably because many of my posts are kinda off topic (if there can be such a thing). IMO EVERYTHING is on topic since virtually everything has an influence on PM’s and other markets, both positive and negative…… So as I have time and inclination I keep posting what I believe is important…..and those who disagree with what I post can either speak up or just walk on by. :o)  I hope to see more from you and many of the other lurking posters. All the best from Silverngold!!

Just to show you how Stupid Hillary is about SILENCERS  is you cant use them on automatic Weapons because the heat up SO much THEY JAM ..

So connecting Silencers with any of this is patently Stupid …What does passing Laws on Silencers have to do with this Political massacre  ….    NOTHING !

Why is the Media

Posted by Ororeef @ 16:22 on October 3, 2017  

so quick to get the Public envolved in the Emotional Issues of this conspiracy …..Is it because that provides a diversion from the real investigation .?

WE know all this planning with 40 0r 50 outlawed AUTO MATIC WEAPONS set up on tri pods  with scopes and positioning which rooms to fire from was not done by one man along with scheduling hotel Rooms and hiding that many weapons from Hotel Employees and choosing a Venue of “Country Western Music Festival” the Arch Enemy of Communists in America ..all this was not Coincidence !     The Media wants to emphasize the Emotional aspects of this since it gets the most attention ..the Prayers,the Flowers,the lighted Candles,singing  and diverts the attention at first but as soon as everyone’s personal security is secured WE need to FOCUS on the “WHO” was behind this dastardly attack on young innocents.  Follow the Money..Follow the “girl Friend”,   follow the Brother because “he doth Protest too much “.

Examine the Bank Accounts ,Examine the LOCAL Political Protests against Trumps election,

Where were these automatic weapons sold from  “?   The Public need to be brought in and kept apprised of the TRUTH  of everything ! in a very public way !

Maybe the holders of ANV stock will receive some benefit …

I saw on Fox News yesterday a reporter talking to another said the shooter converted to Islam and was in contacted with name can’t remember but a terrorist. Then they quickly changed the subject but not denying it and never brought it up again. Too bad the guy couldn’t beg the question and get a answer.
These Demos don’t get that these radical Muslims and criminals coming out of these countries don’t care what ” party” your affiliated with. Nor do nut cases.
Probably was a attack on Repubs and Demo MSM encouraging it and defending violent anarchists like Antifa. So their probably trying to distance themselves from Blame.

Hillary spared no time talking about silencers and how it would of been worse. Then some demo goes on TV on Tucker defending it and saying how both party’s. Need to get together to talk about it. Talking about useless tax absorbers.
For one their illegal anyways so probably gonna try to use it to bring something else up. Two the people didn’t recognize the sounds anyways. They didn’t realize they were being shot at till people around them were getting shot and even then they didn’t know where it was coming from or how many were shooting. The coward was hiding in a building.
Because they didn’t know how many they elected to run and getting shot instead of taking cover if they had any barrier to those bulets.
The video I last posted shows the taxi driver seeing the people running and some panicked kids climbing in her car screaming at her to go that their shooting thousands of people hundreds are probably dead. All they knew is they were being shot at but didn’t know from where or how many.

I think it kinda already happened. After giving away our manufacturing businesses? After 1971? Interest rates to 21% in ’79. Then after the Dot Com bust, ’00, rates down to 2% in and no doc. liar loans.

Joe Sixpack stopped making mortgage payments, and sent millions of Bond investors, FANNY, FREEDY, etc investors to the poor house. Taxpayer bailouts too. Other countries also went down after 2008.


Have you voted in the Poll?

Most posts here don’t get a comment so that’s no surprise. Don’t be a stranger.

I think the amount of posts is correlated to the price of gold …

Yeah that was a bad idea trying to stop the referendum. Not so good for the world and the rest of the Catalans to see grandmothers with bloody, beaten heads.

I wonder how this plays out next. If Spain needs to use violence then they are already losers and the situation will escalate.

Re Catalonia

They are right to be nervous, as what Madrid/EU has done is turn a possibility into a certainty . There were lots of pissed off Catalans before, due to paying a very disproportionate amount into Madrids coffers and getting little back, now Madrid has pissed off them all.

The Euro has created nothing but misery for the Club Med countries and the Catalans have had the double wammy of having their economy wrecked and watching Madrid piss away their wealth and now they find that as far as Madrid/EU is concerned that is just fine.

Plus the Basques are equally unhappy…Spain/EU has got huge problems and morons to sort it out, what could go wrong…..Yet again only the Rig is keeping this pig afloat.

about the housing thing-it seems government programs (sec 8) is really screwing up the housing market . builders/investors are only interested in exclusive or sec 8. what is someone supposed to do who is trying to work but is far behind those on welfare? housing and health care are so far skewed from the norm that the middle and lower middle class are on borrowed time. throw in all those old student loans and credit card debt and a lot of people are broke and hanging on by a thread. now toss into the mix illegal immigration, vastly overcrowded prisons, all government debt, and the illegal drug trade. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

The showdown in Catalonia is far more serious for markets than you realize

Top global banks and bond funds are increasingly alarmed by the secessionist showdown in Spain, fearing that Catalan leaders will declare unilateral independence within days and set off a dangerous chain-reaction.

Events on the ground are moving with lightning speed. Rafael Catala, the Spanish justice minister, warned that Madrid is preparing to strip the rebel region of its autonomy and police powers by triggering Article 155 of the Spanish constitution, the “nuclear option.”

Investors are no longer so certain that the crisis will be defused before it reaches the point of outright rupture, a calamitous outcome that would lead to Catalonia’s ejection from the euro and engulf Spain’s economy in the process.
