Who has more power to destroy the markets? Putin or Bernanke

Discussion in 'Wall St. News' started by michaelscott, Jun 5, 2007.

  1. I find this *hilarious*. Putin comes out yesterday and declares his intention of aiming nuclear missiles at Europe. Then the market rallies.

    Bernanke comes out and *implies* that he *might* just hike the rates. Market then shows a lot of weakness.

    Bernanke is more of a threat to the US markets with just a few words then Putin is with a dozen nuclear missiles.

    So they aim missiles at Europe then what??? NOTHING.
    Easy call for this bluff.
  3. What the fuck are you talking about?
    If you think the market rallies on Putin then you are off your rocker..
    The markets don't care...they move to their own beat of their own drum.
    People who trade off news are fucking morons..
  4. You *might* be a clinical nutcase.

    Putin's threat should be taken seriously by the Europeans. He obviously is a Soviet throwback (ex-KGB even) and he probably longs for the days of the USSR.

    Americans also should realize that he will work to make our lives as difficult as possible in regards to the Middle East, etc.

    With that said, I really don't worry too much about the Russians lobbing missiles. Mutually assured destruction actually works very well with the Russians.
  6. wwIII, justification, you silly ass. putin, bush and bernanke are all in bed together. playing you like a fiddle I think chavez is in on this dumbshit too. something like war is good or holy war, armageddon jihad or some other dumb shit their clever little minds put together. ceynesian caca and filosophical marxist materialism. Greed is good? how much does a greedy person make in the markets? a fearful person? wishful? Can you see the fear in bens face? the face of defeat. of deceit? 50 bid at even SOLD! long 50 and blue in the face.
  7. how did Bernanke imply he might raise rates? Did you hear that on CNBC?
  8. The above insane poster aside, the market doesn't care what Putin says in regards to aiming missles. We all know he's not about to launch anything. A war with Russia is one of the most unlikely events to happen in the next ten years, ranked right under the probability of NASA finding a planet that is inhabited entirely by double D breasted cheerleaders.

    So why should the market give a damn about the news?
  9. This is the part that is both hilarious and utterly ridiculous.

    He used the words "ebbing" and "somewhat elevated" in regards to inflation according to the article.

    It only takes a few words from Bernanke to erase billions of dollars in market capitalization.


    What I was saying about Putin was an ironic comparison...here you have the Russian leader making specific threats during a press conference and here is what he said:

    "If a part of the strategic nuclear potential of the United States appears in Europe and, in the opinion of our military specialists, will threaten us, then we will have to take appropriate steps in response. What kind of steps? We will have to have new targets in Europe," Putin said, according to a transcript released by the Kremlin. These could be targeted with "ballistic or cruise missiles or maybe a completely new system" he said.

    Then you have Bernanke use the words "ebbing" and "somewhat elevated".


  10. Someone should lock up Putin inside Club Metro in St. Petersburg and make him a part of their show.
