  1. i saw this on another board its great and true


    GM chapter 11 = PRICED IN
    125K+ jobs lost from GM chapter 11 = PRICED IN
    unemployment @ 9% = BETTER THAN EXPECTED
    unemployment @ 10% = DOW SOARS
    unemployment @ 11% = GREEN SHOOT RALLY
    unemployment @ 12% = ALREADY FACTORED IN
    unemployment = 35% = DOW DROPS 100 POINTS
    housing price =1% = RECESSION ENDING
    housing collapses = GREEN SHOOT
    Housing falls 20% = STABILIZATION
    Government spends 1 trillion of OUR dollars = STIMULUS
    North Korea fires nuke = RALLY
    Israel bombs Iran = 30 MINUTE END OF DAY RALLY
    world explodes = ASIA RALLIES
    PMI crashes = HUGE RALLY
    No jobs are created = RECESSION ALMOST OVER
    U.S. debt overwhelming = TOO BUSY RALLYING TO CARE
    Consumer stops spending = RETAIL RALLY
    Banks are insolvent = SIGNS OF STABILIZATION
    American auto industry BK = GOOD THING
    Banks pass scam stress tests = HUUUUUUUUGE RALLY
    Banks "only need 75 billion = OUT OF THE WOODS
    Banks pass a real stress test = NEVER WOULD HAPPEN
    Banks pay back tarp = LATE DAY SURGE
    Banksw can't pay back TARP = EARLY MORNING SURGE
    12% mortgage delinquency = GOOD FOR STOCKS
    Hundreds of thousands of mortgages underwater = HOUSING BOTTOMED

    And the one we should all interpret corrcectly:

  2. Uncle Sam goes belly up = One less super power = RALLY!
     
  3. I think that someone stole this from Kudlow's desk. I'm pretty sure this is his (and all of CNBC's) "explanation sheet". I hear that it's based off a very sophisticated algorithm created by Jeff Macke.
     
  4. That is quality!

    So true, needs nothing added.
     
  5. plan

    plan

    Instant classic
     
  6. I am going long...
     
  7. SWEET! I just started trading 1 yr ago & I found i like trading from the short side..... I am just glad to go very light cause when the fix is in you don't have a chance. It is like making money when you cut your size and lose only a little.
     
  8. This list seems to be missing a few items...

    unexplained market rally = "short covering"
    unexplained market rally = "insiders going long"
    unexplained market rally = cost averaging into the market by the all elusive "dark pools"

    -gastropod

    UP/DOWN....whatever!....

    Somebody get the market off this plateau !!
