Ftse Taking A Bashing--- merged

Jackson Hole this weekend isn't it?

We need to make sure the correct decisions are taken.

The strong rally this week has because everyone thinks Ben will save us with his printing press. Maybe now everyone has realised that he is actually going to destroy us with his printing press.

Maybe it's a ying yang thing. At the start of the week it's he'll save us, end of week he'll destroy us, Monday it will be back to he'll save us.... etc...

Nearly 2% down. No real indicator of why this is yet

when the BOFE bod talked in Doncaster today we were doing quite well , then as he spoke things turned for the worse Pound down against The euro /dollar and stocks are down around 110 on the ftse atm, strange it usually works the other way when the printing presses are warming up maybe a touch of reality is breaking out.

Germany's DAX down almost 3% too. This all seems to be related to Buffet's announcement of a $5billion investment into the insolvent Bank of America - essentially it's a bailout of one of the US's largest banks, and has spooked the markets who are looking nervously at Socgen, Unicredit etc who will be the next to need a handout, which seems like it's not going to materialize.

That's according to ZH anyway

OH YES HE...

Too many QE3 bets out there.

A few people are starting to realize it might not happen tomorrow.

I think you might be right - certainly looking very jumpy. Have a few big players been dumping stocks, making the rest of the herd think they've got wind of no QE3?

Please Ben, can we have some more money Ben?

No.

The stock market is cratering Ben, it's going down Ben, can we have some more money to prevent it Ben?

OK here you go then, crisis averted, bonuses all round.

I made that bet (or more think he can't) last thursday and went all cash, since then I've been a bit pig sick to see the markets bouyed (although the shares I had are only fair to middling). So I'm quite happy if the rest of the market takes up my view and my limits trigger :)

What great news for the bank holiday weekend

What time does the FTSE close? I have no clue at all about stocks, I just read the threads and try to get an idea of what's going on by aggregating the posts. :lol:

That's compicated! Better off to think of it as 8am to 4:30pm then takes around 30mins to settle.

I said early in the week or last week buy, if you're a trader, to 5500/5700 then sell the hell out. Sell at this level in your pension.

Of course HPC deleted my post.

I don't think they deleted it? I read it and enquired if you are expecting "good" news from Jackson Hole?
