Afternoon Delight 11/07/11

It is only a matter of time. Can the bears remain solvent?

Worst Case Scenario - 

I was hoping they would be putting a worst case scenario together - looks like they got one. OK, now if they have gone to these lengths what does that tell you? And now I ask, do you have a worst case scenario plan in place?

The EU is just a total mess -

""If you look at the troubles which happened in European countries, this is purely because of the accumulated troubles of the worn out welfare society. I think the labour laws are outdated. The labour laws induce sloth, indolence, rather than hardworking. The incentive system, is totally out of whack." Jin Liqun: Europe induces 'sloth, indolence' - Talk to Al Jazeera - Al Jazeera English

More Lies from the Broker Dealers -

Move your Money a Huge Success - 

Just add all the issues from the BD's as documented above to the MF Global scandal (investors lost over $600 million) to the already discontent populace. This is awesome.

 "With November 5 being hailed as Bank Transfer Day, the final day in a month-long demonstration to move money from out of the big banks and into smaller, localized credit unions, the tally of those that took up the cause has come through and it shows that the movement was more than just a fluke. Leading up to November 5, $4.5 billion was taken out of major financial institutions." Billions of dollars moved in bank transfer demonstrations — RT

Daily Obummer Bashing (cause it is so easy to do) - 

Sorry, but this ain't right at all - Why don't they just say it is an election year (and even if it was not) so we don't have to give you jack.

Chart of the Day - 

SPX 60m - at resistance with some divergences possibly setting here - that does not look good at all. On the other hand maybe that wedge still needs a run up for the E touch or overthrow before we get a major move south.

Remember the reason for the season!
