The mother of all CPI reports. How will you trade?

  1. Will we have an inflation blow-out?
    Will the numbers be moderate?
    Will inflation come in under expectations?

    You can pretty much give 33 1/3% chance to each option above because it's gone from beyond manipulation to flat out lies. CPI is actually forcasted to decline from the previous month. LMAO :D :D :D

    I still think Bernanke does a 1% rate cut or more on March 18th, regadless of inflation numbers. All you fools buying dollars are gonna get a slap in the face.
  2. ?...........unchanged on the day!

    If I have my dates right The Chimp is giving a speech on the economy on Wednesday so the Fed will cut on Tuesday regardless of CPI or anything else.
  4. If Beeks gave me the right report, sppoz should be down 15-20 handles at time of report. Cover the rip down and position long on the rip down in Fed pump and dump next week?
  5. add to all this, the quad witching that's going on, between all the various futures contracts, not just the equity contracts too...

    or at least their distinctive trading patterns

  7. Damn, you Beeks.....cover!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Haha...what a sham this government data is... farce...
    or maybe it's slapstick...

    Back in the day, if a goldsmith was caught clipping or shaving coins, the punishment was to have his hand cut off...

    Someone hold Bernanke down while I sharpen the knife...
