Not sure what I will do for Friday. There will be a post, but it will be limited.
Sorry to bring you all this crappy news, but you must see it and feel it. No longer can we live in denial. This shit is real and it is an enormous problem. As STB pointed out many months ago - it is all about liquidity - show me the money! Sadly there isn't any to show as they burned (stole) it all.
I've been telling you literally for years the math does not work and global default is the only answer. I've been telling you to have plenty of cash at home (with many other things). So what happens when the banks all freeze up? Well, the O-MFG event has been going on for over a month now with no resolution or return of the stolen investor capital. Think about that long and hard.
Time to start considering the worst case scenarios and have a TOTAL DISASTER PLAN in place. I still think they are coming for ALL the retirement assets of the nation (401k, IRA, pensions et al) and will confiscate them and force them into treasuries as a last resort to keep things afloat. This will supplement SS and bind all the retirement plans in the nation under one government controlled distribution system where all are treated equally. That will suck won't it. Think about the market devastation when that happens? Hey, we all either keep eating or we keep the market, you decide.
"So if you want to stabilize that $30 trillion and in my view it's not that you want to, it's that you have to, you do not have a choice, you're going to have to be at least at 2.1 trillion and I suspect it may need to be more."

"The amount of funds that European banks sought from the European Central Bank (ECB) climbed on Tuesday to the highest level since April 2009.
The European Central Bank reported that 178 European banks requested 247 billion euros ($333 billion) in one-week loans on Tuesday. The increased demand for funding rose considerably from the previous week when 161 banks borrowed 230 billion euros ($310 billion) from the ECB."

And to complete that all over warm and fuzzy holiday season feeling -

"Russia will deploy new missiles aimed at U.S. missile defense sites in Europe if Washington goes ahead with the planned shield despite Russia's concerns, President Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday." Medvedev: Russia may target missile defense sites - Yahoo! News

A chart from the private stock - Yes, believe it or not I know what this chart says. See the red diagonal from top left to bottom right (Uz this is the one I have been telling you about for months now). When that goes it is all over and we're sitting on it right now. This will be a good diagonal for a backtest corrective short entry in the future. Those of you looking for a corrective - this point may be your only shot.
SPX Daily -
SPX Yearly - Just for perspective and cause you rarely get to see a yearly chart. Lower BB is 353 and that MACD bear crossed at the top in '07. It has some steam to work off I'd say. RSI just now at 50 line with plenty of room to fall.
And in an effort to continue to prove that NO ONE has mastered chart drawing like I have - (that's a hen and not a gobbler)
Let the Christmas Season begin!
Remember the Reason for the season!
