[08:36] {Threei}  (EU) IMF Strauss-Kaun: Does not see economic reovery in Europe next year
[08:36] {nemo} lol

[08:36] {Threei}  a year ago he did I guess
[08:37] {davd} kind of like the sign, "free beer tomorrow"
[08:37] {Threei}  :)
[08:59] {ese} gm
[08:59] {RonS} gm ese, all

[09:00] {ese} see ya there friday
[09:00] {RonS} such a debilitating desease
[09:00] {ese} how so ron
[09:00] {ese} ahh
[09:00] {RonS} seems to me that those afflicted would try anything
[09:01] {RonS} those people cannot move a muscle without aching
[09:01] {Threei}  from earlier:
[09:01] {Threei}  *(US) OCT HOUSING STARTS: 519K V 598KE (lowest since April 2009); BUILDING PERMITS: 550K V 568KE
[09:01] {Threei}  - Prior Housing Starts revised lower from 610K to 588K
[09:01] {Threei}  - Note: Housing starts -11.7% m/m is approximately double the lowest street estimate
[09:01] {Threei}  *(US) OCT CONSUMER PRICE INDEX M/M: 0.2% V 0.3%E; CPI EX FOOD&ENERGY M/M: 0.0% V 0.1%E; CPI NSA: 218.7 V 218.8E
[09:01] {Threei}  - CPI Y/Y: 1.2% v 1.3%e
[09:01] {Threei}  - CPI Ex-food & Energy Y/Y: 0.6% v 0.7%e (Core Y/Y CPI at 0.6% is lowest reading on record)
[09:01] {Threei}  - CPI core index SA: 221.8 v 221.8 prior
[09:02] {Threei}  IR) Ireland opposition spokesperson: The EU is not distinguishing between the govt and the banks
[09:02] {Threei}  ***Note: During yesterday's session - The Irish Fin Min Lenihan stated any assistance to Irish banking system would be welcome, and reiterated a bailout for Ireland is NOT inevitable.
[09:02] {Threei}  - The govt has not made commitments to enter any facility.
[09:02] {Threei}  this sounds like mantra he repeats every day before going to sleep:
[09:02] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Rosengren: Bond buying is fully consistent with the Fed's mandate, not concerned by bond market volitility
[09:02] {Threei}  - Believes the Fed will be able to manage the various risks inherent in the new policy.
[09:02] {Threei}  - Fed is not trying to weaken the dollar.
[09:02] {Threei}  - Believes new policy can help add more than 700K jobs.
[09:03] {RonS} no costco bought columbian coffee went from 7.99 pre crisis to 5.99 during, back to 7.99, then 9.99 1 mo ago and now 11.99
[09:03] {Threei}  ...not concerned by bond market volitility...not concerned by bond market volitility...
[09:03] {nemo} harvest was sub par this year, there is also greater demand from China
[09:03] {Threei}  rthat's nothing Ron, look at the bag of pine nuts
[09:04] {nemo} Prices up are not inflation by themselves
[09:04] {RonS} what is inflation if not price
[09:04] {Threei}  Human Genome Sciences Inc FDA advisory panel votes 10-5 that Benlysta lupus drug is effective and safe; votes 13-2 to recommend approval
[09:04] {Threei}  - Panel votes 14-1 that the drug is safe.
[09:04] {Threei}  - NOTE: HGSI and GSK are partners on the drug. According to HGSI, no new drug for lupus has been approved by regulatory authorities in more than 50 years.
[09:05] {nemo} Inflation is more $ chasing the same amount of good given the same supply/demand parameters
[09:05] {RonS} ...and the stock is whacked over concerns about label warnings...
[09:05] {nemo} If you have less of something and the same demand, prices will go up
[09:06] {Threei}  it opened yesterday after thew halt at 29
[09:06] {nemo} If you have more of something, and less demand, prices will go down

[09:14] {Threei}  oh the irony
[09:15] {Threei}  Fed is astonished by goverment meddling
[09:15] {RonS} can you be astonished for 60 years...
[09:15] {Threei}  I am astonished by their astonishment
[09:15] {RonS} been going on since the end of wwii
[09:15] {davd} when i was consulting we used to say "it's a very common exception"
[09:15] {Threei}  lol davd, that's a good one
[09:16] {RonS} it's kinda like these market commentors who constantly say "today is different"
[09:16] {Threei}  larisa :)

[09:24] {davd} as did the depression...
[09:25] {ese} also forgot to mention ron that patience lives on a private golf course here......
[09:25] {RonS} nah...widespread death is much different...
[09:25] {RonS} and by starvation to boot...
[09:26] {davd} yes, that's true.
[09:26] {dino} that famine brought my relatives to usa, why i,m here
