[09:06] {ese} watched Wall Street 2...Money never sleeps on the weekend.......Gecko is back
[09:06] {Les} any good?
[09:07] {strider} cover X .79 +.26
[09:07] {Les} nice one st. thought u were about to get trapped there.
[09:07] {ese} hmmmmmmm was ok......it was basically a mock up of the real estate crash
[09:07] {Les} market plays nice
[09:08] {dino} gj strider
[09:08] {Les} yeh I figured the fiction of this film can't be more incredible then what the banksters have really done
[09:08] {ese} references to the banks ineptitude......
[09:08] {ese} yup you got it
[09:08] {Threei}  funny how everything and everyone focused on banks...
[09:09] {Threei}  and the role of the goverment that inspired whole debacle is totally ignored
[09:09] {Les} well of course
[09:09] {Les} govt. is there to help us
[09:09] {ese} good point
[09:09] {Threei}  simple question:
[09:09] {Threei}  why canadian n=banks didn't do anything of kind?
[09:09] {Les} http://miburl.com/a7gGa2
[09:09] {Threei}  what, greed ends at 40th parallel?
[09:10] {Les} cause they're Canadian Vad!
[09:10] {Les} above link is Mauldin newsletter. Quoting book written by insider in lending industry at height of the scam
[09:10] {Threei}  goverment created a framework in USA that opened this door and mtivated this behavior
[09:10] {ese} canadian banking structure is a whole lot more solid in terms of reserves to be kept to back loans etc etc...
[09:11] {Threei}  right, and on top of that,
[09:11] {Threei}  there was no push for lending money to those who had no means of repaying
[09:11] {Threei}  no goverment guarantees for such loans
[09:12] {Threei}  thus no subprime
[09:12] {Les} well shame on the canadian govt.
[09:12] {ese} someone might know this answer but i don't believe we've ever had a bank failure in Canada
[09:12] {Threei}  so, if banks are guilty - they are guilty of playing the game goverment has created
[09:13] {Threei}  so how come it's banks all the way now that blame assigning time came?
[09:13] {Les} cause govt is here to help!!!!
[09:13] {Threei}  yep
[09:13] {Les} how many times I gotta say it
[09:14] {Threei}  let's give houses to those who can't afford them, let's buy their votes, let's be kind and merciful
[09:14] {Threei}  never mind that this kindness will kill those same we claim to take care of
[09:14] {Threei}  good intentions, you know...
[09:14] {ese} hmmmmmm
[09:16] {Threei}  don't believe it ese? look up the role of Clinton administration that started this push, stood behand FNM/FRE guaranteeing those sybprime mortgages
[09:17] {Threei}  creating "riskless" money for banks
[09:17] {ese} was just about to say....wasn't it that admin that set this all in motion
[09:17] {Threei}  sure
[09:17] {Threei}  Barney...
[09:18] {Threei}  and look at it from bank point of view
[09:18] {Threei}  grab a homeless off the street,
[09:18] {Threei}  give him a mortgage,
[09:18] {ese} ya....i remember that......plus deregulating hedge funds....or something like that
[09:18] {Threei}  get guarantee from FNM
[09:18] {Threei}  insure via AIG,
[09:19] {Threei}  goverment stands behind both,
[09:19] {Threei}  what's banks risk?
[09:19] {davd} then sell it to the third market 3i
[09:19] {Threei}  zero, and it has a good deed on its balance - more people are housed
[09:19] {Les} damn Vad that sounds just like story of Stalin
[09:19] {Threei}  why on Earth wouldn't bank do it?
[09:19] {ese} well we know what that risk is now........people sell the stock off if theres no profits
[09:20] {Threei}  that risk lied in gioverment not being able to sustain the pyramid,
[09:20] {Threei}  but who thought of that at the time?
[09:20] {Les} maybe the odd congressman who understood that money doesn't grow on trees
[09:21] {strider} no.  It comes from cash cows.
[09:23] {strider} VLTR theflyonthewall.com:  Volterra downgraded to Accumulate from Buy at Craig-Hallum :theflyonthewall.com
[09:23] {strider} so how doyou accumulate without buying?
[09:24] {ese} downgraded to "accumulate".......holy flippin........what the hell kinda contradiction in terms is that
[09:25] {strider} yeah, but you shouldn't buy.
[09:25] {ese} man.....the double speak in this industry gets stupid beyond stupid
[09:25] {strider} maybe steal?
[09:25] {Threei}  well
[09:26] {Threei}  "buy" means just hit the offers
[09:26] {Threei}  buy all you can at any price available
[09:26] {khaln} g morning

[11:47] {Les} beginning to fail support
[11:51] {Les} no if only the market would play ball
[11:51] {Les} now if
[11:53] {Threei}  Only 14% Prefer Government-Regulated Economy Over Free Market
[11:53] {Threei}  1% prefers market, 85% answer "huh?"
[11:55] {Les} huh?
[11:55] {Threei}  right
[11:55] {Les} they don't wanna be disturbed from their sitcoms hey?
[11:55] {Les} glued to the tv
[11:55] {Threei}  why sitcoms... there are plenty other valuable things to do not to be distracted from
[11:55] {Threei}  football
[11:55] {Threei}  hockey
[11:56] {Threei}  amrican idol
[11:56] {Les} all the same crap
[11:56] {Threei}  reality shows
[11:56] {Threei}  so, don't underestimate how busy we are
[11:58] {RonS} ...the real problem is that very few understand what "government regulated" and "free market" even mean...or what the current state is now, and what iit has been in the past, or may be in the future...
[12:00] {RonS} ...it is now those on the inside (of governmen), vs. those on the outside.  The municipal unions are killing the country, similar to what the industrial unions did in the '70's
[12:00] {RonS} ...and then those koolaid drinking teachers...
[12:01] {RonS} ...and govt contractors who love big govt...and big business who love regulation to stifle competition.
[12:02] {RonS} Adam Smith detailed the dynamic 235 yrs ago.
[12:03] {RonS} ...sorry, guess i had to vent.  :/
[12:05] {RonS} meantime, look at the picture i posted...they are fantastic
[12:05] {RonS} pictures

[12:11] {Threei}  wtg
[12:11] {dino} gj
[12:11] {Threei}  how about this:
[12:11] {Threei}  - Raising interest rates in an open economy can fuel asset bubbles by attracting capital inflows.
[12:12] {dino} brb
[12:14] {dino} seems backwards
[12:15] {RonS} i sure miss Milton Freidman...the idiocy of the current regime is staggering
[12:15] {Threei}  oh good... I am not the only one feeling I suddenly moved to parallel universe
[12:15] {RonS} ...actually dino that cna occur, but not in this environment
[12:15] {Threei}  which turned out to be perpendicular

[12:45] {Threei}  CH) China Minister: US' dollar issuance is 'out of control', US is attacking China with inflation
[12:45] {Threei}  - NOTE: earlier today Chinese press cited a Chinese minister as saying China has been impacted by imported inflation, due to higher commodity prices.
[12:45] {Threei}  imported inflation - I knew we did export something to China
[12:46] {Threei}  in the morning:
[12:46] {Threei}  07:59:20
[12:46] {Threei}  (CH) China Minister: China has been impacted by imported inflation, due to higher commodity prices - Xinhua
[12:46] {Threei}  - 2011 exports will likely stabilize while imports will likely increase.
[12:51] {RonS} Bernanke to China:  "but it is not "core" inflation so it does not matter."
[12:51] {dino} roflol
[12:52] {Threei}  hehe
[12:52] {RonS} ...the highly intelligent US population understands this. What is wrong with you?

[13:07] {RonS} GS 50 yr bond: hey, if the Mexican government can do a 100 yr, why not?
[13:08] {larisa} Ron is bored to death :)

[13:14] {Threei}  you got a bet
[13:15] {larisa} just trying to stay awake :)
[13:15] {Threei}  38.3% allotted at the high
[13:15] {Threei}  - Indirect bidders take 40% of competitive bids, direct bidders take 15.9%, primary dealers take 44.1%.
06[13:16] * Threei puts bird seeds at 55.01 for RIMM's consumption
06[13:16] * Threei puts a carrot at 55.02
[13:16] {RonS} ...something is messing w/ my mibbet...

[14:57] {jfjf64} sle
[14:58] {Les} don't worry, I'm sure Chavez is on a contigency security plan somewhere in the pentagon
[14:58] {Les} if ever needed by white house diversionary team

[15:06] {Les} u hunt for us a reversal setup on LVS vad?
[15:06] {Threei}  I don't see it
[15:07] {Threei}  overall, I have to say, either this is weord day or I am out of tune today a bit
[15:07] {Threei}  slightly positive for the day, but so many invalidations
[15:08] {Threei}  it usually happens when I structure setups well but go against the grain
[15:08] {Threei}  so they do not trigger, no harm,
[15:08] {Les} interesting that russell 2k much lower than SPY. looking read to fall
[15:08] {Threei}  but invalidations are so numerous, we would be beter off goling other way around
[15:10] {RonS} pomo pump is keeping underlying bid in market. weak pullbacks...grinds higher...chinese water torure shorts.
[15:10] {Les} I'm an idiot SPY lower than IWM
