They pushed the market pretty well considering, but frankly I'm surprised it isn't a lot stronger. Consider this... the Ten year has retreated AND the dollar has weakened. Both of those should have added jet fuel to the push higher, but it has only gotten us 55 DOW

Am I surprised they couldn't keep us green on the day? I wouldn't say surprised that's not the right word. I did think they'd keep us in the green although not by a lot, just "because" they can. But we're down about 30 heading into the final hour.

JPM "Corners" the Gold Market Bookmark

In the latest COT ( commitment of traders) report something interesting manifests itself if you compare the data there to the Banking data and the exchange data. It seems that JPM is now "long" about 25% of all the long side gold positions. Never before has one entity been that

Did China ask for Its Gold Back? Bookmark

There's been some rumors that along with Germany and several others asking the Federal Reserve to ship their gold back to the host country, maybe China has demanded that it too sees its gold reserves sent home. This would be quite an issue because I believe that a lot of

Another batty day, where the direction is totally random. That big drop out at around 1 that hit right around the time Fed head Bullard was yackin was pretty severe. Granted what he had to say about the taper was just as convoluted as most of their speeches

Federal Reserve President Lockhart says "not enough data to taper" Bookmark


As you can imagine that's all it took for the market to go from red to nice and bright green as all hopes that they never taper back the stimulus known as QE boosted their spirits. I find it interesting that for a week they've told us that tapering

What has "TV" told you about the taper for the last two weeks? They've told you it's coming and it won't have much effect. They say the economy doesn't need it any more the Treasury doesn't need it and you should just ignore it. This is how they
