Ftse Nearing The Magic 5000 Mark


Recommended Posts

The FTSE is approaching that magic 5000 mark....on the way down.

Once that psychological level is breached will there be any stopping it ?

Has someone finally worked out it only went up before the election to make us all feel good, make us feel better off and make us vote for our labour saviors ?

It's amaxing what you can do with a couple of billion quid.

P.S. The dow is closing in on 10000 too !!!

European markets gave up early rises after the Dow Jones opened down 2.1pc following a jump in US jobless claims to 471,000. Economists were expecting them to fall to 440,000.

The poor news on the US economy added to jitters about a tightening of financial regulation, pushing London's FTSE 100 down 2pc. Germany's DAX skidded 2.3pc, France's CAC 2.8pc and Spain's Ibex 1.7pc. Earlier, Asian markets fell for a second day with the Nikkei sliding 1.5pc and Australia's ASX 1.6pc.

Seems yet more unexpected news.

Plenty of black days to come over the next few years, no need to waste them this early in the game, the US and Asian markets probably havent even topped their bear market rallies yet.

Credit bubble = 90% asset price spanking, i dont see why this time should be any different :D

10 yr bond yields are falling quite sharply too. The world is obviously needing more free money, this debt stuff we have isn't working out.

Clearly not enough new debt has been created to wipe out the leverage of the existing debt.

We need more people to borrow money so the existing borrowers can pay back the money.

The Yanks have put rule 48 back into play:

Timber!

So if the markets crashes they can step in and stop the crash before it is too big... and then blame it all on fat fingers?

What about Korea chaps & gals - the North & South are waving fists at one another again?
