Dear Jon,

The daily chart of the Nasdaq looks ugly!  Jon, the daily chart of the Nasdaq looks ugly.  Ugly as in bearish.

Love,

Jon

P.S. this is a hint for you to find premium and let the market come to you, not to trade directionally just yet.

Rocks

Both of these men have rocks in their heads.

Krugman is just plain and simple, off the deep end stupid. Holy fuck! Who gave him a degree?

Ron Paul, you tout “Inflation is theft” yet, never do we hear about you stopping the debasement of our currency by private banks. End the fed, audit the fed, be the fed, fed this, fed that, competitive currency? How do you plan on doing this with private banks destroying it at the governments will? You have lost your mind. And shut up about gold already. Yes, it has been a good investment against the dollar since the crisis, but short of buying shares of Netflix, so has everything else commodity related. That inflation is partially YOUR fault. Shut the fuck up! All of you: Obama drama, Paul, Krugman, Romney, EVERYONE!

Make the left side of this image return. Then I’ll listen.

Passing On The Hopium

Sorry guys, you are gonna have to pass that pipe to someone else. I remember the D.A.R.E. commercials and this looks like it leads to ass rape.

The 1 hr chart shows the breakdown of a major support line. I wonder if KY jelly has gone up as much as the other lubrication products?

The daily chart shows aapl getting black fucked pretty hard on this one. Who know’s what happens from here, does Peter North join and make it a interracial slop fest? Perhaps magical fairies from Israel step in and buy it with all the profits they have made from gun sales this year?

Regardless, my inventory on AAPL has changed dramatically over the last two trading days and its anti hopium, high probability, tested vega positive.

Somehow this is relevant.

Push To Add Drama

Look at that, an up day in an up trending market, imagine that! Let see what happens when we get back to the 30 day SMA. Until then, lets let the scalpers have their fun until someone pushes the drama button.

Brilliant

This will actually give universities incentive to deliver marketable, workforce ready candidates without such a huge price burden as the more marketable their students, the more money they will bring in. Looking at some of the math 5% for 20 years is actually a lot cheaper than what a lot of American’s sign themselves up to pay for and theoretically its not such a burden in the younger years when you would typically be making less. I really like this preliminary idea, I would love to see the refined details. The overarching idea of this just seems like a fantastic way to help us 99% escape education debt serfdom.

Brilliant!

30 Year Mortgage Rates

If homes were affordable, the vast majority of the populations wouldn’t need 30 year loans to get one.

1960 – median income ~$6600
1960 – median home price ~$12000

Leverage and financialization of everything in this country is whats destroying it. 4% schmorepercent. It’s still to expensive!

Oh Shit Checklist #oh shit

From a Zerohedge comment here is your checklist for Oh SHIT the financial world is coming to an end!  Too Funny, unfortunately its pretty much all true.

Checklist of ‘Oh Shit’ –

Near Record or Record Margin
Near Record or Record Leverage
An Unregulated and Private Derivatives Market With a Notional Value Approximated at 600 Trillion USD, Which Will Ultimately Necessitate More Bailouts of ‘TBTF’ Entities Under Threat of “Martial Law” & “Tanks in the Streets” When Certain, Special Entities Lose Their Wagers:
Excessive Governmental Meddling That Distorts Supply/Demand Curve
Excessive Central Bankster Meddling Via Monetary Policy Distorting Supply/Demand Curve
Complete Lack of Transparency As To How, What, When & Where Central Banksters Are Doing Things
An Accumulated Debt Overhang Built Over 40 Years That Puts Interest Component On National Debt, Alone, At Several Multitudes of What The Entire National Debt Was Just 20 Years Prior
An Accumulated Debt Carried By the Federal Government So Large That Nearly 30 Cents of Every Dollar Borrowed by Federal Government in Form of Annual Deficit Spending Goes Toward Interest on the Debt
A Structural Change in Employment Base Whereby a True 20% of the Workforce (18 to 60 Year Olds – Not Disabled) Can Not Find Permanent Work
A Structural Change in Employment Base Whereby a True 30% of the Workforce Can Only Find Work that Puts Them In ‘Working Poor’ Status
A Structural Change in the Economy & Society Whereby a True 50% of the Population is Dependent on Direct Government Aid & Subsidization In Order to Meet the Basic Expenses of their Day-To-Day Subsistence
Having The ‘Financial Services’ Industry Constitute 40%+ of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product, While The ‘Manufacturing’ Sector Consitutes Roughly 16% (Exact Inverse of Where Things Stood in 1968)
The U.S. Government Spending 1.41 for Each Dollar of Revenue it Receives On An Annual Basis.
Having Property Taxes at the Local Level of Government Grow 480x Over In 80 Years in Real Dollar Terms
Having The Government Move From A Model Whereby It Is Able to Balance Its Budget Taking a Mere 6% of the Average Annual Income of Americans in 1913 to One Whereby It Is Running An Annual Deficit Equal to 16% of GDP and Has A Debt of 108% of GDP (It’s Actually Much Higher Than That) While Taking Nearly 20% of Average American’s Incomes (This Nearly 20% Doesn’t Include Sales Tax, Property Taxes, Use Taxes, Permit or License Taxes/Fees, License or Registration Taxes/Fees, State Income Taxes, Death Taxes, Personal Property Taxes, or a Myriad of other Taxes).
Having 3 Segment of the National Annual Budget Consume 80% of Spending: Medicare, Social Security & Defense
Having a Congress, Executive & Judicial Branch of Government in ‘Deep Capture,’ That Works For the Best Interests of the Military-Industrial-Financial Complex, Always
Having Sacrosanct Provisions of the Constitution Gutted, Shredded & Vaporized So Completely That The Constitution Becomes A Mere Reference Point & “Sometimes Persuasive,” Rather Than A Mandatory Roadmap

 

…One day this will all come tumbling down on us. Until then, protect yourself  now and keep laughing.
