And The Alibi Is ... Dubai.

In an earlier post I wrote reporting Prechter's move to 200% Short, also including a very vain attempt at 'guessing the alibi'.  This is one of my favorite market pastimes, so naturally I wanted to share the experience with my friends here at CAPS.  I am pleased to report that we were all wrong in our guesses at the Alibi, but all exactly correct on our predicted outcomes.  It turns out the Alibi is ..... (drum roll, and hushed wisper, as if the moderator on 'Password') ..... Dubai. 

The English language is a supple gown and not only do the words Alibi and Dubai appear to be pronouced somewhat the same, the English phonetic meaning being the absolutely perfect choice of words, just the day before Black Friday, as if to suggest or imply....yes, by all means "do buy" on Black Friday; as our economy which produces nothing and consumes everything isn't really set up for anything else.  It is the full metal jacket approach and Encouragement which further undermines our efforts to emerge from that hideous strength, that is "Our Egghead Depression". 

An old friend of mine, who was on the Management Team at Nat West some years ago quipped smartly to me one day, "Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean that they're not out to get you."  Most wise words indeed.  Touche'.  We've been stumped into correct analysis with the utterance of a single word....Dubai.

I'm willing to buy one of those manmade islands, if they are willing to sell it to me as a soveriegn nation.

Tell their people to call my people.

Here's your chance to buy.  I plan to.  I buy on down days and sell on up days.

Don't buy!  The foundations of those homes are not sturdy and destined to crash to the ground.

A soverign nation island would be worth more than the distressed property built on it.  You can always build another building.

Only Dubai can build an island.

Just a clarification, I meant buy in the US stock market, not those silly man made Dubai islands.

It's ok, if the house crumbles as long as the island stays above sea level.

BTW, I don't really have any people, but Grandpa Payne will write down a message for me if you talk into his good ear.
