US stocks ended lower on Thursday after the head of the country's largest mortgage lender warned that the housing market slump could spark a recession.

  • True, but it was really just a nothing day. Sometimes the indices go up , sometimes they go down. This was well within a “hang about day”.

    The really telling pieces of information here are the way everybody “leapt” into the market thinking they were saved on even the rumour of a Fed action, even though it has been shown that most people in the debt markets couldn’t price an apple, let alone a complex multi-tranched , multi-graded, multi-risk faceted, multi-colored debt instrument.

    How Countrywide rallied when BoA started to step in (can you explain to me why BoA didn’t go down instead) is bizarre. Wouldn’t you have thought – hang on a minute – that looks like a pile. Not – that looks like a good investment.

    The reality of the situation might be that BoA is so exposed to Countrywide it merely decided this was as good an option. ( i really couldn’t say on that one – i dont have the real correlation maps infront of me – but wait….. neither does anybody else either … thats why its all screwed).

    Its real virtual private world of equities stuff.

    To be rudely awakened… watch this space.

  • There were extreme rallies in 1929, even though, obviously, the net direction was only one way. If that’s the way it’s going, expect many more ups and downs.
