SP 500 Head and shoulders pattern
http://niftychartsandpatterns.blogspot.com/2010/06/sp-500-head-and-shoulders-pattern.html

David

If the market is getting ready to rally to new highs why would the bond market, expecially long bonds, be rallying?

I put more faith in bond market than the stock market for telling me were things are going.

According to Cramer, everyone hates this market.

http://www.zerohedge.com/article/cramer-calls-market-stupid-rapacious-arbitrary-capricious-and-downright-ridiculous-tells-vie

When everyone hates a market it tends to be more near a low than a high. When everyone LOVES a market, watch out. We may not see a top in this market until SP500 hits 1300 and everyone falls in love with it again.

Bond rally means lower rates. Lower rates are good for the economy right?

When rates are low, stocks will grow.

What about all the methane that comes from Gainesville, GA?

Posted by: Neo | Friday, June 18, 2010 at 10:00 AM

The Georgian Methane will combine with the Gulfian Methane and together will form Super-Poo which Prechter will see as a sign of an alien attack and the DOW30 going to well below zero.

Everyone will then scurry into underground bunkers and will only come out at night for fear of the terminator drones lurking about

No action today! Short term, very over stretched. But it's been that way since late Tuesday. Best guess, quick burst Monday morning then the correction starts.

Chabazite

Hock - you seem to forget that this is NOT British Petroleum but BP. 39% of the ownership are US citizens and instutions. The board of 12 directors is split evenly between British and American nationals. But almost 23,000 of its other employees are American, compared to only 10,000 Brits. BP has 7,000 staff in Houston alone. So presumably the 'fucking arseholes' that you so eloquently refer to are largely US citizens. THAT IS YOUR OWN PEOPLE. This is an educated blog and generally the standard of comment and analysis is high; I had somehow expected a more insightful response in this debate.

I like that quick burst thing, but don't know if I can wait...

Chabazite

David - 'So does this mean that you don't believe that 60,000 barrels per day of crude oil being dumped into the Gulf of Mexico will do any long-term harm to the environment, let alone the $3 billion dollar per year fishing industry?

And by the way, that 60,000 per barrel figure is one that BP's very own CEO has recently used as an estimate on how much oil can be captured by July. That figure isn't coming from any propoganda machine.'
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know and accept that this is a terrible tragedy. But the question at stake was 'how is BP not already guilty'? Yesterdays proceedings were not designed to get to a better understanding of 'how' this disaster happened. And surely that question must be answered before anyone points the finger of blame. My guess is that it is a complex matter with a number of key parties have meddled and it will take time to unravel the precise sequence of events and background to the matter. No, yesterdays proceedings were designed to give a bunch of jumped up politicians a once-in-a-lifetime chance to very publicly humiliate the Chief Executive of a major corporation for their own glorification. Did they succeed? Well, maybe. But there again a lot of people will be looking at the way justice is dispensed in 'land of the free' and thinking that Hayward would more likely have got a fairer 'hearing' from a right-wing military style junta in a bananna republic.

Try 800,000 barrels +. I am hanging on until next friday to the drop begins. I believe we will see intraday break of 1150 for spx first.

"No, yesterdays proceedings were designed to give a bunch of jumped up politicians a once-in-a-lifetime chance to very publicly humiliate the Chief Executive of a major corporation for their own glorification." - Chabazite

Understood and Agreed on 100%
But I really think that you are being overly dramatic when it comes to characterizing these proceedings in "the Land of the Free."

Moreover, this is nothing new here in the USA. Politicians love to "grandstand" in front of the cameras, especially in an election year. Did you not see all of the absurd hearings of oil execs when crude traded up to $147 per barrel in 2008? Or did you not see the ridiculous grilling of one bank CEO after another last year? Where have you been all this time?

This is nothing new.

Furthermore, I can assure you that no American here mistakes it as "justice" or judge, jury, and executionary. It's all done for show . . . and no one really expects any new or significant information to come forward, especially when people like CEO Tony Hayward are "lawyered-up" to the gills.

As for BP being guilty, I think that the investigations will most likely come to that conclusion. But I'm sure that most of us that don't live in the Gulf or have to make our livelihood in the Gulf can be patient enough to wait for whatever the investigations conclude. But with civil fines of $4,300.00 per barrel, it's gonna get extremely expensive for BP and anyone else held responsible.

Anyone remember the Union Carbide / Bhopal disaster back in 1984?

I do.

Good points Michael. Thanks for the mature debate.

Chabazite: "No, yesterdays proceedings were designed to give a bunch of jumped up politicians a once-in-a-lifetime chance to very publicly humiliate the Chief Executive of a major corporation for their own glorification."

I absolutely agree. The politicians only exhibited their own shallowness and inability to provide good government. I don't defend BP. But what was the point of those hearings and what did they expect from Hayward? It was embarrassing.

This is a failure of government. It's up to the government to look out for the common welfare and prevent a tragedy of the commons. What happened to congressional oversight of MMS? Why wasn't there any preparation for such a disaster with available equipment and personnel? Where are the adults who were supposed to be providing oversight?

BP is no doubt culpable. But so are those driving suvs and trucks , mostly alone, who demand cheap gasoline and who don't want to pay the true cost, including the premium of effectively mitigating the risk of damage to the environment.

So the Theorist came out. Anyone subscribe to it? Not much in the way of charts.
The next Financial Forecast will update the markets. I am sure us guys here at yelnick's blog can figure things out for 'em. lol

The chart of the dollar in this month's Theorist (Figure 2 page 2) has the dollar in a move down, but I think that their (5) counts better as a B of (4), so now the dollar is in C of (4) down. The dollar index could work its way down to 83 or 84 before a Wave 5 begins.

However, their count has the wave (1) as an extension, so their (2) might count better as the wave (4) so the current C wave could take the dollar down to the 80-82 level.

Either way, the C wave down in the dollar should end when this current 'v' of 5 of B in gold ends.

Thanks, Popeye. Time to buy gold 'n silver, I suppose.

Chabazite

rc - $20 billion of culpable (so far). Having bought into BP over the past few days my gamble is that the company won't end up obliged to write blank cheques to fund the Obama stimulus. I anticipate that BP will remain battered but in tact and recover over a three or four year period. That is my gamble and having considered the downside (100% if the company is bankrupted), its one I am prepared to take. Best. Chab.

Nero

I'm shorting BP to zero...she's toast. I now see why gold has been (and will continue) spiking that past few days...china dropping the dollar-peg is a game changer...a BIG game changer.

I'll be putting shorts on the greenback sunday night...my new target for the DX index is 25-30 over the next ten years...it'll take a LONG time to play out. Dow 25,000 and Gold 18,000 within the same ten year time frame.

I have two names for you.
George Bush and Dick Cheney.

The "Energy Act of 2005" which was spearheaded by Cheney and his "leutenants" Gayle Norton and Ms. Johnnie Burton, also of Wyoming.

Why even bother investing in a company that has had safety violations at a rate that is 100 TIMES the industry average???

There are plenty of good, solid, and well-managed companies out there to invest in. BP is not one of them.

DG

"I have two names for you.

Obama's been in office for over a year. If the "Energy Act of 2005" was so egregious, why didn't he sign an Executive Order to overturn its provisions?

Only the Obama dead-enders believe that this is somehow Bush's fault. I was going to say only "morons and Obama dead-enders" but then realized the two groups overlap to such an extent it's not worth differentiating between them.

Chabazite

MichaeL ... with respect, just over a year ago you might have said 'why bother investing in the likes of Barclays, when there are plenty of good, solid and well-managed companies out there to invest in. Like BP!

Michael

Quite frankly, I am at a loss as to why you believe that BP is such an attractive investment at the price level where you purchased it?

As for Barclay's ... it's trading at the same price "level" that it was trading at one year ago. No one cares.

If someone is looking for exposure in international offshore drilling with minimal risk in the Gulf of Mexico ( one rig ) I would suggest SDRL. It also happens to be paying an 8% dividend.

The stock got unfairly dragged down by the BP mess.

Sorry Darrin, but you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to Gayle Norton and the Department of Interior, let alone the previous director of MMS, Johnnie Burton of Wyoming. You've already proven that in a previous post that you made regarding the topic a week ago.

Given your twisted sense of logic, I guess that George Bush is also to blame for 9/11 given that he had already been in office for one year and he and his campaign had severely criticized the Clinton Administration and democrats in general for a lack of committment to the defense and security of our Nation.

Yet, he was unable to protect our country from harm.

My "previous post" was that ultimately all government bureaucrats are the same, so I'm not sure you've "proven" jack shit about Norton or Burton that makes me question that. It's fucking moronic losers like you who romanticize government bureaucrats into all-powerful Nietzschean supermen who've turned this country into a fucking sewer to make up for your own personal inadequacies in taking care of your own life.

No, dumbfuck, because George Bush couldn't have signed an Executive Order forbidding terrorists to attack the US like Obama could have signed an Executive Order overturning provisions of the allegedly egregious Energy Act of 2005 you cited.

Can you see the difference, retard?

And yes, I originally voted for George Bush the first time around and admit that I made a terrible mistake. The man was the WORST US PRESIDENT in a generation. Period.

"Next thing we will hear from DG is how Dick Cheney had nothing to do with Halliburton and Texas Senate Republican Phil Gramm had nothing to do with Enron."

Yeah, way to change the topic. I guess that's the only response the three brain cells you've got could come up with.

I'm not "arguing for the sake of arguing", I'm telling you (not arguing it, stating it as a fact) that you're licking Obama's ass now in 2010, regardless of who you did or didn't vote for in 2008. As if I'd believe you, anyway. I don't believe a word you and your dozen sockpuppet usernames say. Any man who hides behind a bunch of fake usernames trying to make it seem as though there are a bunch of people posting here who agree with him will lie about other things as well. Once a liar, always a liar.

I must say, that I always find it rather humurous that you have to resort to using expletives in order to get your point across. YOUR PROBLEM is that you think that you have a complete understanding of the facts, when you clearly do not.

I suggest that you do some homework to comprehend just what an "Executive Order" can and cannot do. Otherwise, you make yourself look like a FOOL which is so often the case here with you.

You clearly have a faulty understanding of the act, which merely seeks to clarify existing legislation and law; not make new law.

Excuse me?
Change the topic?

I'm sorry, but I think that most people here can clearly see that the Bush Administration had everything to do with
the Department of the Interior ( which oversaw the Minerals Management Services agency that regulates offshore drilling ) becoming so pro-oil and allowing for all sorts of safety and environmental exemptions when it came to drilling.

And you are arguing to the contrary?
Good luck with that.

I resort to expletives because you are a retard and I figure that's the easiest way to get things through to you. And, I think you're a fucking idiot and that only the modifier "fucking" captures the true depths of your idiocy. There are literally no non-expletive adjectives that can do the job of "fucking" in the description.

I didn't say anything about having a "complete understanding of the facts", although, if past is prologue, I doubt you do, either. You made some ridiculous point that Obama basically was faultless here because of some Bush-era regulations. Well, if the regulation stood out so egregiously as "pro-oil" why didn't Obama's people alert him to that fact and undo it, whether by Executive Order or by regulatory fiat?

"I'm sorry, but I think that most people here can clearly see that the Bush Administration had everything to do with
the Department of the Interior ( which oversaw the Minerals Management Services agency that regulates offshore drilling ) becoming so pro-oil and allowing for all sorts of safety and environmental exemptions when it came to drilling."

OK, so as soon as you connect this back to your moronic off-topic post about Cheney/Halliburton and Gramm/Enron in a way that makes that relevant to the BP spill, it might matter. Not relevant in some generic way, but specifically relevant.

DG

One last thing is that I find the presumptuousness of addressing me as something other than "DG", my chosen forum name and chose to preserve anonymity, highly grating and, in a face-to-face situation, cause for me punching you in your fucking face.

Did my expletives get that point across, motherfucker?
