Don't look now but the Russell 2000 is close to taking out the February high...

Then Bernanke will think to himself "job well done".

CV said...

Speaking of the Bernank...

Is this "melt down" an indication of CORE inflation being low?

Guardian Reports Core At Reactor 2 May Have Melted To Concrete Floor, Radioactive Lava Next?

Or is it just another case of fear mongering?

AmenRa said...

I was just reading that guardian article and I wouldn't want to be anywhere near Japan at this time. It's not good.

AmenRa said...

You get downgrades of Portugal and Greece, a bad Case-Shiller report, a WTE consumer sentiment reading and get a no/low volume meltup in the markets. No mas.

from what I've seen/heard, serious people think that that TEPCO/Fukushima Plant is a serious problem (not 'contained', at all)

"...and get a no/low volume meltup in the markets.."


that Vol. # is, really, amazing, no?

esp. w/ Volume 246,495,152

good thing there 'ancient' G*rbage, like this:

DENVER—A fight brewing in the Colorado legislature has lawmakers bitterly divided over beer.

The state House of Representatives is expected to begin debate soon on a bill that would dismantle Colorado's great beer divide, which since 1933 has limited the sale of beer with higher alcohol content to liquor stores, restaurants and bars.

Supermarkets and convenience stores, meanwhile, have had a monopoly on beer with less than 3.2% alcohol by weight, which is equivalent to 4% by volume. Now, they want the opportunity to cash in on sales of the stronger stuff.

In 2010, Coloradans purchased nearly six million gallons of lower-alcohol beer, compared with 104 million gallons of higher-alcohol brews.

Colorado's beer laws, enacted after Prohibition to keep the most intoxicating brews away from teens, have created unusual situations. The Coors Light sold in supermarkets is made with a shorter fermentation period, which produces a lower alcohol content, than the Coors Light sold in liquor stores—though the brewer says there is no difference in taste, and the packaging is nearly identical.

Only four other states—Utah, Oklahoma, Indiana and Kansas—have similar rules...

to keep peep distracted/occupied..

S&P 500 closes right at that first resistance level discussed on Sunday night, but showing ZERO signs of peaking action.

Bears going to be "tested" next few days....

Andy T said...


Good thing they had those laws enacted...

Lord only knows what those teens would have done if there had been higher alcohol content brew in the Supermarket...

Are we ever going to learn?

There's a law here in TX that you cannot buy beer before 12PM on Sunday. Pfft.... What's the point?

Liquor stores are shutdown on Sunday here. I'm sort of "for" that law just because I feel bad for my Vietnamese liquor store guy who works everyday of his life that the store is open.

AmenRa said...


Damn. That's what they're keeping from the public. Mass panic is coming.

Andy T said...

Thinking about the way the S&P500 is acting from the top...the idea that "markets don't peak on bearish news" is still ringing true.

Let's face's NUTS that the market as 'shrugged off' everything here. But, THAT IS the way it goes.

Markets don't peak until every single bullish factor has been fully discounted. Ditto in reverse. Remember, the stock market didn't bottom at 667 in March '09 until it seemed like BofA and Citi were going to be nationalized that weekend--basically..."the end."

I suppose one of the "cool" things about youtube and technology is the way it "ushers in" democratic outcomes....

So, this dude from Illinois College wanted to get into the NCAA "dunk contest." Coming from a DivIII school, that was a "non-starter."

So, naturally this fellow creates a video of himself doing insane dunks.

Guess what? He gets the invite.

G'Night and Good Luck to this young fellow.

He's got mad hops! Nice.

Anyone use Skew? Any hints on best way to use it? What is it saying or at what level does it say watch out?
