  1. not much fun being a bear right now.

  2. It is all good until it isn’t and the isn’t will we epic. The people party as Rome burns. The markets don’t care if the dollar flops, or bonds flatten and dive? Sooner rather than later the piper will be paid and the real value of everything will knock you upside the head.

    • Like the real value of fiat currency?

    • indeed. despite what H puts up as the scariest chart in the world, the truly scariest one is of margin debt levels (and dont forget to add all the “Portfolio Loan products). the amount of selling, or paying down of margin debt that will need to take place to look remotely like 2001 or 2008 is extraordinary. that, imo, is the selling fuel. in the uptrend shorts are the fuel to move up, debt is the fuel to move down.

      • i watch margin debt closely as well.
        but i/we only get that data every 3 months (that’s when i get it anyway).
        IF our markets go down as fast as they went up, a 3 month time frame is probably useless. when the 3rd to last chair is unavailable that’s when the exit door close and panic price discovery begins.
        shorting is difficult. i am sure Mr. H and his hedge fund buddies can attest.
        filled a few more shorts today an 1 long option. long positions are 1/2 years out.
        good luck all.

  3. I remember back in 2007 when oil was at $145 Goldman said it was going to $200.
    That’s when I shorted oil.

  4. NA
    a very valid point. i also think the same. the reality is the really really big boys cant move billions without moving the market. maybe we will see a slow drift down before the plug is pulled. one my subscription explained this very well.
    have fun
    sb
