[14:11] {Threei} by the way, remember Les saying recently that he tried to combine dino's and my strategies?
[14:11] {Threei} I had a frightening thought that his end result would be a T-Rex with three eyes
[14:11] {nemo} that would confuse Einstein

[14:12] {nemo} yeah..hard to believe someone gave birth to Les

[14:41] {Threei} VXX new low... lol
[14:42] {nemo} that could launch the market, remember what happened last month
[14:42] {Threei} true, but I am not sure I understand this p[articular report
[14:42] {Threei} last time around reaction was against common sense
[14:42] {Threei} if I remember correct
[14:43] {Threei} ly
[14:43] {nemo} well, the contraction was much smaller than the expected contraction
[14:43] {Threei} memory fails me then
[14:44] {dino} fade the faders fade
[14:44] {Threei} well, we will know in 16 minutes
[14:44] {Threei} dino started happy hour early or what, lol

[14:46] {dino} lol
[14:46] {RonS} man, that is one smart device...
[14:46] {nemo} now you just have to program it to say "Piss off"
[14:47] {Threei} not really Ron... I said "bring me some beer"... non communicado
[14:47] {RonS} ...Gordon Ramsey-style
[14:48] {Threei} this is something to be careful about nemo... each phone number has a voice-tag to it... I may use that opne for your phone number... or jf.. haven't decided yet

[14:50] {nemo} no not with that report coming
[14:51] {Threei} let's keep VXX on the screen
[14:52] {Threei} if report sends market down, VXX will jump like anthelope that got a good squirt of turpentine up its butt
[14:53] {dino} wow
[14:53] {Threei} to refresh:
[14:53] {Threei} **consensus expectation: -$4.5Be v -$1.7B prior
[14:54] {Threei} hmmm
[14:54] {dino} market stays like this in afternoons i will need to stock up on 5 hour energy
[14:54] {nemo} take a nap at lunch
[14:55] {Threei} expectations are so stretched... hard to imagine number coming in even lower
[14:55] {Threei} as if it were pre-designed to push market up
[14:55] {nemo} funny...fas showing it wants to drop
[14:56] {Threei} after 11 straight months of contraction, is it realistic to expect -4.5B vs last reading of -1.7?
[14:56] {dino} tnh stopped -.24
[14:56] {nemo} they expected like 12 last month maybe 13
[14:57] {Threei} yes, but almost three times bigger drop vs lat month?
[14:57] {Threei} I don't remember what the Nov read was
[14:57] {Threei} so don't know how expctations compared to that
[14:58] {nemo} if credit actually expanded look out above
[14:58] {Threei} or not
[14:58] {Threei} I mean... we did rally for something, right?
[14:58] {nemo} yeah unemployment
[14:59] {Threei} getting finally credit flowing, and reversing to the downside on that would be so oefectly evilish
[14:59] {Threei} perfectly
[14:59] {nemo} not today
[14:59] {nemo} fas already taking off
[14:59] {Threei} OK... be that way

[15:44] {jfjf64} dino wtg
[15:44] {nemo} piss off jf
[15:45] {Threei} Congressional Budget Office (CBO): Obama proposed budget would incur $9.76T in deficits and publicly held debt would grow to 90% of GDP by 2020
[15:45] {Threei} - revises 2010 budget deficit to $1.5T from $1.3T on 1/26; 2011 budget deficit revised to $1.3T from $980B forecasted on 1/26
[15:45] {Threei} - deficit under the Presidents proposals would fall to about 4% of GDP by 2014 but would rise steadily thereafter
[15:45] {dino} ty jf
[15:45] {Threei} - cumulative deficit over the 2011-2020 period would equal $9.8T (5.2% of GDP), $3.8T more than the cumulative deficit projected in the baseline. Of that difference, roughly $3.0T stems directly from proposed changes in policy and another $0.8T results from additional interest on the public debt.
[15:45] {Threei} - largest budgetary impact would stem from the Presidents proposals to index the alternative minimum tax (AMT) for inflation and to extend various tax provisions contained in the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA) and the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 (JGTRRA). Over the next 10 years, those policies would reduce revenues and boost outlays for refundable tax credits by a total of $3.0T
