Given the ability of the government to prolong the inevitable, I'm hereby copyrighting the above dates in CAPS.

This will hopefully give me 5 years of peace from repetitive, incessent alstry posts.


Not saying that he's wrong, in fact I'm quite sure that he's right. It just gets too annoying after a while.

Imagine how annoying it is knowing that you know Alstry is right and you are just annoyed;)

Interesting times isn't it.

FORT LEE -- Motorists along state Route 36 just outside Fort Lee slowed down yesterday morning to take a peek at the soldiers in full gear guarding the main gate.

About a dozen protesters held posters and chanted, "No more hate! No more hate!"

The base's law enforcement made sure the demonstrators stayed calm and outside Fort Lee's perimeters.

It was a peaceful and short demonstration, but such an unusual scene that a traffic backup seemed inevitable.

"What's going on?" asked a passing driver.

Fort Lee law-enforcement, civilian and military personnel were simulating a protest as part of a three-day anti-terrorism and force-protection exercise at the Army base.

"It is really important to do training like this," said Garrison Commander Col. Mike Morrow, noting the Army's dedication to protect its soldiers and their families.

Throughout the year, Fort Lee officials conduct emergency training, analyze local crime trends and national threats to prepare for different scenarios, from protests to shootings to more violent attacks, Morrow said.

Training today consists of a more violent scenario, base officials said.

Chris, I don't think you will get any mileage on 13-13-13 or 14-14-14  unless Obama splits the calendar and adds more months with his name on one of them for 13.  (Like Caesar)?   Who gets 14? Maybe his dog??? Darn, I just learned the rules for how to tell if a month has 28, 30, or 31 I have to start all over again with 26 or 27.......

Then again, the question, just like in the RenTec case, is who is on the other side of the trade that recurs like clockwork each and every day and where just 60 minutes of trading accounts for over 70% of the entire intraday stock market movement over the past 6 months. Another key question to consider as more and more momos pile into the momentum trade is what happens when it fails and all the previously natural buyers become very unnatural sellers. Will be a sight to behold when the momentum flips. But for now, someone is very happy to keep feeding the momos, who, with Pavlovian regularity, keep coming back, until one day the Skinner box fails.

Hmmmm.  Most of market trading is bankrupt finanicials and colocated computers traderbating back and forth to each other....FDIC is out of money....Pension Guarantee Fund in deficit.....financials loaded with CRE and insolvent......unemployment approaching 20%.....Autos bankrupt....homebuilders bankrupt......retailers shutting down......and Government spending $2 trillion that doesn't exist......

The matrix can be a grand illusion....until you turn the computers off.

starfirenv- since you requested it, I made a post to update my situation. click on my blog link to see it.

alstry - Question #1 - I think we've always agreed, and I don't think I've ever denied that fact, but you're more concerned face time and recs than fixing the problem. If you really want to be the legend that is in your own mind, instead of saying "prepare" you might want to give some suggestions on how to do it.

Question #2 - see checklist34's comment about your support article, but to your initial question, it depends what you mean by "make it" I think that we are already seeing the negative effects of fiscal policy. I think we will get another big drop in the market this month, but I also think that inflation will lesson that drop to a degree that the perma-bulls will keep pumping money into the system. I think that we are in for 5 solid years of stagflation as long as we have patsies buying our debt. I think we are in for hyper-inflation once everyone feels that our debt is worthless. I plan on the patsies figuring it out, but given the time of our fiscal reign and our political alliances, even when they figure it out, it will take a while to respond.The next drop down won't be the last.

TSIF - I was seriously thinking of going to 20-20-20!

LLCX - I believe we are going to hit an uptrend the next couple of days as well. I think it will be due more to traders taking advantage of inflation than anything, and I beilieve that it will be short lived. I don't know if I've said stagflation enough, but I believe that instead of very slow growth in this stagflation, we are going to see a slow market decline.
