CBs will try to sell dollars and yen again on the weekend.

BUCKY will take a breather, I think, and so will TLT and the VIX.
But the KRAKEN has been awakened.

You know, LB, your avatar seems to be showing mostly your "good" side...

B in T: This avatar definitely catches my best asset.

CV said...

Some may want to "pin a tail" on that thing...

bob said...

I can't see the icon well enough, but is that doctor phil behind LB's rear end? It might be why he looks nervous.

I-Man said...

Is it sad that some of the "realest" people I know, I dont even "know", because they are on the internet?

Or is everyone else experiencing a similar phenomenon?

I-Man said...

That's my thought of the day...

Profound, I know.

TJIF!

Leftback said...

You will force LB to lose the ass and mule over a new icon..

Leftback said...

"Is it sad that some of the "realest" people I know.."

No, the issue is most people are Dumb as Rocks.

Leftback said...

ZH has a few stories out of Europe.

Basically they are going to do a TALF. There will be a rally.
Wonder if ECB will eventually go to ZIRP?

Nic said...

QE PART II
on the wires tonight:
French sources expect ECB to set up credit facilities over weekend. BoJ, Fed, BoE expected to set up FX swaps on Monday.

Have a great weekend all!

Wes said...

...more holes in the dike

...gotta plug 'em up...

hurry, hurry, create more debt...

Nic said...

Anyone wonder what happened to Gold and Silver today?

KD has the story

Nic said...

A EUR rally is good news LB.
We can sell some more :)

call me ahab said...

WOW-

found some local "super-premium" Virginia made Vodka at the ABC store- and made traditional- from potatoes-

pretty damn good- and I was near an ethnic grocery store- Korean I think-

popped in and found some Tiger beer-haven't had that since the last time I was in Singapore about 20 years ago- but-

lo and behold- at the back of the store- live Tilapia- in huge tanks- as well as live Catfish and Fluke and some other fish I don't remember-

a bit of a coincidence considering CV's indoor Tilapia farm was just mentioned this morning

call me ahab said...

this is a must watch video- compliments of ZH-

Tim Backshall Of CDR Summarizies The Greek Predicament In 3 Quick Minutes

no doubt- I mean really- can we expect "clear heads" to prevail?

more debt is not a solution- but it is the "GOAL" of of all advanced nations-

because if it is not achieved- the ship goes down!!!!

Wes said...

nic@7:28 -

i was thinking the same thing in essence,

i was wondering if jpm was starting to unwind their massive silver short today...

i doubt it, they have the wink and the nod, probably just the lesser players, but...if that is the case, what could be the impact of a jpm unwind - massive i would spec

DL said...

I-Man @ 5:40

What one finds at a site like this is a high level of honesty among contributors. No pretensions, no fancy cars, no fancy degrees, no fancy titles (a few weird avatars, maybe).

karen said...

DL, hahaha! but definitely a few weird "avatars" as you call them. AR, thanks for the recap.. i don't want your contribution go thankless even tho it pays exceptionally well.

(ps. i'll try for a new "avatar" by Monday!)

Bruce in Tennessee said...

I-man:

You know the polling wizards have come to the conclusion that the majority of investors now get most of their information from blog sites. And as you guys already stated, even if you are anonymous, there is no reason to lie, unless you are wired like F 111 or Harry Wanger. Or maybe the Wall Streeter who blogs.

Found a new place for oysters last night. Great band. Great time.

CV said...

@DL

The reason for the high level at this site is because of the extraordinary high salaries I pay AmenRa & Andy T...

They draw all the top quality commentators...

If it was just me by myself, this place would disintegrate to "The Fishin' Hole" in about 3 seconds...

However, I still think Bruce, IMan, and maybe ahab would buzz by by from time to time if that were the case...

karen - you keep your AVATAR as it is... If CV can figure out a way to "monetize" that, I will... Soon I may need to if AmenRa & Andy ask for a raise :-)...

call me ahab said...

Wes-

here's something I posted the other day you may find interesting from Jesse's cafe-

Why Silver?

"Quite a few think that it is a trade gone out of hand, where the shorts are effectively trapped, and cannot manage their way out of it gracefully."

Wes said...

...no conspiracy, just trapped on the wrong side of the trade, maybe so - pure COLD STEEL

call me ahab said...

. . .and it's amazing that I still woke up about 6:30-

a bit "out of practice" on vodka martini's- so alas- my head was spinning by the time I went to bed-

but this morning- I feel great- now that is tolerance- lol

call me ahab said...

. . .and CV-

dude- you're pretty sharp- and eclectic- so your site is informative and interesting and if you remember- when you set up this site-

I said I was with you win or tie- lol

WASHINGTON - Following last-minute adjustments, a proposal to audit the Federal Reserve that the Obama administration once opposed was on the verge of passing the Senate as it attracted broad support from conservatives and liberals alike.

The administration withdrew its objections to the proposal Thursday, saying it was satisfied that the audit would not interfere with the Fed's authority to set monetary policy.
