What time today will Ben Bernanke announce his intentions today from Jackson Hole?
Meeting starts at 2pm eastern time!
Get ready for MAJOR, EXTREME VOLATILITY!
I hope many here are on the right side of the trade, Im still short this market with a few longs, shorted the VIX around these levels just in case the market decides to spring upwards late this afternoon.
Looks like the markets are getting a head start to the downside!
Thanks for the info.
Is there a web cast or any other live coverage on the web?
Yes agree about the volatility - VIX will break 50...
uhhh it started at 10 est guys
"Bernanke, who is scheduled to speak on Friday at 10 a.m. EDT, is most likely to outline gradualist measures, which would disappoint those looking for dramatic action, such as a fresh round of asset purchases."
10am Eastern? WTF???
Interesting that they chose not to televise the speech.
He has announced............no more stimulus. Dow futures tank 150 points .
WHEW talk about a turn around!!!!!!!!!
Shorting the VIX was the way to go!!!
LONG SDS at $24.75
Going to be an interesting day
Are you still awaiting the 2PM announcement? Yeah, way to go. VIX futures are unch to up a dime.
I went short the VIX when the DOW was down over 150 points!
