Bought F today on the weakness. Sold most of the puts and shorts I had on.
Is there a link for that?
It's from a BofA/Merril research blurb.
UA sets 2 for 1 split, record date June 25 pay date approximately July 9.
Shocker more bailouts don't heal the market. This dead cat bounce has just about run it's course.
Not to mention the expense ratios. Their investments are Fidelity mutual funds and you're paying expenses on all of those.
I've been flipping between VIXY and XIV and have been doing relatively well timing the market. Got in at Vixy at 39 the other day, debating how long I'm going to hold it. It's been pinging between 36-49 pretty consistently. I get worried though I'm going to sell out of it just before there's a real prolonged drop.

Huge move up ahead of Fed meeting tomorrow. We're essentially baking in QE3 at this point. If Uncle Ben doesn't deliver could get ugly really quick.
Glad I will not have to pay the butcher's bill on these printing press fiascoes. You folks under 65 are fucked!
You're not kidding. This is beyond pathetic. It isn't anything close to a free market anymore. Everyone wants "liquidity" (read: a bailout) at every hint of trouble. Like we won't even consider the natural economic and business cycles to take place. When the bell finally tolls it's going to be one magnificent shit show.
when we teach our kids that everyone wins and failure is not acceptable it shows itself in our markets.
Not the smart ones who are buying hard assets....
P&G lowered their forecast today and is getting hammered. Below $60 it has 3.5% yield and would seem to be a good "buy on the news" type of situation.
Dumb question for the smart guys...how long will mortgage rates be this low? (ballpark)
We're looking at houses that I never thought we'd be able to afford and want to know how long we have to pull the trigger.
Based on the action of the central bank its possible they stay in this range through 2014. Of course their promises to keep rates low for the long term won't mean jack if conditions change.
If you're in a position to do it I think shooting for by the election would be a good goal to get locked in.
Also, please buy less house than you can afford...Dont buy the filet mignon that costs $50 bucks when you have $51 dollars in your pocket. Buy the NY Strip that costs $20, so you can buy the broad some ice cream later on.
not sure whether to buy today after Fed announcement or not

We don't make much but we don't spend much, either and have saved quite a bit.
We have a good bit of equity in our current house. If we sold it we'd have more than enough for 20% down but would rather not as we can make a killing by renting it out.
So we only have about 15% to put down on the next one.
Fed extends operation twist to the end of the year. No QE3.
Surprised the market hasn't reacted more negatively.
Goofy market today for those of us playing volitility. I picked up UVXY at $11.75 - no way it doesnt spike in the next few days, right?.
NYCTerp05: i guarantee you my child won't turn out gay
Anddd there is the negative reaction
Some things you just can't make up.
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged that a former broker in Orlando, Fla., defrauded investors in an astrology-based Ponzi scheme.
The SEC alleges that Gurudeo “Buddy” Persaud lured family, friends, and others into investing in his firm, White Elephant Trading Company LLC, by falsely guaranteeing their money would be safe and yield lofty returns ranging from 6 to 18 percent. Persaud told investors he would invest in the debt, stock, futures, and real estate markets, but did not reveal that his trading strategy was based on his belief that markets are affected by gravitational forces.
The SEC alleges that in making trading decisions, Persaud chiefly relied on an Internet service that provided directional market forecasts based on lunar cycles and gravitational pull. Persaud’s strategy was premised on the idea that gravitational forces affect mass human behavior, and in turn, the stock market. For example, Persaud believed that when the moon exerts greater gravitational pull on the Earth, people feel dejected and are more inclined to sell securities.

Where do you guys see the market going between now and August, or whenever the next Fed meeting is?

Well, Moody's is coming out with some overall downgrade of global capital markets firms after the close, so that won't help.
I don't think August or Fed meeting is the measuring point, it's the day after election day. There haven't been very many positive economic reports on anything recently. We've had PG and MO cut their forecasts over the last couple of days, Spain is said to be worse shape than Greece, existing home sales came in down today, etc. etc. etc. I'm probably going to keep my taxable money pretty stable until November and just dollar cost average in my 401(k). Contribute to the IRA on down days/weeks.
