The time-lines below highlight the four recessions in the US economy since 1980…..While the NBER was only a little late in its recognition of the recession that began in Summer 1981, they were late to the game in the remaining three. In fact, during the last two recessions, the NBER did not officially declare the start to a recession until the recession had already ended. The u.s. is already in recession, beyond the fake data/reports, with much higher than reported inflation, etc..

Economic Expert Says Global Crash Imminent
Echoes former world bank leader with prediction of global recession Steve Watson
A leading economic expert has warned that a global crash and recession is imminent on the back of record highs in real estate, stocks and energy, combined with a devaluation of the dollar and continued speculative bubble thinking. Robert Shiller, the Stanley B. Resor Professor of Economics at Yale University told an audience at the annual Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Week that a sharp downward correction is due in the global markets. Shiller stated: Perhaps we have gotten a little too confident in the global economic growth, said Shiller. The problem is high oil, stock and real estate prices. I believe that a substantial part is speculative bubble thinking. We have gotten too confident of the prices in these markets.

Andrew Jackson: "There are no necessary evils in government. Its evils exist only in its abuses."

Congressman McFadden (1934) on the Fed: "This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government."

Recession in the US 'has arrived': Merrill Lynch

Morgan Stanley issues full US recession alert   Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
Tuesday December 11, 2007 Morgan Stanley has issued a full recession alert for the US economy, warning of a sharp slowdown in business investment and a "perfect storm" for consumers as the housing slump spreads. In a report "Recession Coming" released today, the bank's US team said the credit crunch had started to inflict serious damage on US companies…..

Reuters House prices seen falling 30 pct 12- 6-07 By Julie Haviv NEW YORK (Reuters) - Housing markets from Punta Gorda, Florida, to Stockton, California, will crash and suffer price drops of more than 30 percent before the housing crisis is over, a report from Moody's Economy.com said on Thursday. On a national level, the housing market recession will continue through early 2009, said the report, co-authored by Mark Zandi, chief economist, and Celia Chen, director of housing economics. The report paints a worsening picture of the hard-hit housing sector, which is in the midst of its worst downturn since World War II. While activity will stabilize in 2009, it will not be until 2010 before a measurable improvement in sales, construction and pricing will emerge, the report said…..

Earnings Recession Has Arrived U.S. corporate profits are in a recession, and the entire economy can not be far behind. Slower sales and higher energy and labor costs are forcing companies from Bear Stearns Cos. to Pitney Bowes Inc. to reduce spending and hiring. Their efforts to keep earnings from eroding even further raise the risk that the economy, already weakened by the steepest housing slide since 1991, may shrink sometime next year. ‘The earnings recession has already arrived, says David Rosenberg, North America economist for Merrill Lynch & Co. in New York. We are going to see an economic recession in '08.…..’

CHEER: Ambrose Evans-Pritchard: Bank Crisis may make '29 look 'walk in park'... As central banks continue to splash their cash over the system, so far to little effect, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard argues things are rapidly spiralling out of their control Twenty billion dollars here, $20bn there, and a lush half-trillion from the European Central Bank at give-away rates for Christmas. Buckets of liquidity are being splashed over the North Atlantic banking system, so far with meagre or fleeting effects. "Liquidity doesn't do anything in this situation," says Anna Schwartz, the doyenne of US monetarism and life-time student (with Milton Friedman) of the Great Depression."It cannot deal with ….. that lots of firms are going bankrupt. The banks and the hedge funds have not fully acknowledged who is in trouble. That is the critical issue," she adds…..

The global economy is going through a "profound shift" as it deals with the unwinding of debt leverage, which Todd Harrison, CEO of Minyanville.com calls "the mother of all bubbles."
As with the tech bubble before them, bubbles in housing, commodities and hedge funds were all made bigger because of the unfettered use of leverage. The unwinding process is going to result in a "prolonged period of socioeconomic malaise," he says, predicting unemployment will rise will into double-digits before the cycle turns.

It should also be noted that despite the rhetoric, the wall street bailout will NOT solve the crisis or eliminate the economic pain except to make permanent the fraudulent wealth transfer to the most well healed heals/frauds/criminals in the nation who caused the so-called crisis by their greed/corruption/fraud.   All news decisively negative as WaMu becomes biggest bank to fail in US history (AP), GDP revised downward to 2.8% in second quarter (the market previously rallied on the false news and rallies again on the true bad news), only 30% at most support the taxpayer bailout of the wall street frauds so count on tax revolts as predicted by experts if the same passes , Sell into any rallies/take profits as all problems remain and will be exacerbated by the fact that the vast majority of taxpayers rationally and correctly opposed the bailout of the wall street criminals who benefited from the fraud.

One democrat said that with 3 months remaining in war criminal (remember the lies) bush’s lamentable failed presidency the grab based on fear that bailout of the criminals who caused the problem and made huge sums from their heavily commissioned fraud will avoid what already is can only be deemed another fraudulent wealth transfer akin to the war crimes in Iraq, which budget-busting conflict is also part of america’s problem, is preposterous on it’s face.A republican said that the so-called over-sight provision utilizes a standard of judicial review that would render impossible any purported review/abrogation (and after the fact at that) of paulson’s largesse to his bro’s on wall street and bush buddies.  Mike Stathis The Market Oracle September 22, 2008… As far as I’m concerned, anyone who doesn’t conduct a full investigation of this charade leading to several CEOs and other executives in prison with all of their assets being shuttled into America’s bailout fund doesn’t have what it takes to lead America anywhere except on its current course – downward.

Suckers’ bear market/short-covering rally based on bull s**t alone, this time by wall street shill paulson whose bailout rhetoric brings ‘irrational exuberance’ since wall street frauds should be prosecuted, required to disgorge ill-gotten gains, and jailed since they’re the ones who benefited and are escaping accountability by the bailout.

The Dow Priced in Ounces of Gold: Secular Bear Market Since '99 by Lindstrom from Seeking Alpha  AP Business Highlights A private research group says that Americans remain the most pessimistic about the economy since the tail end of the last prolonged recession 16 years ago. But economists warn that the slight uptick, which reverses a six-month slide since January, is likely to be only temporary and doesn't signal the beginning of a rally…Yahoo… the survey only has weak correlation with actual spending, so Briefing.com does not put too much stock in the report.] Quantifying Inflation by Zigler from Seeking Alpha, Housing report bruises frauds on wall street with reality but false report from corrupt, scandal-scarred, criminal commerce department (contrary to all expectations and contrary to all regional fed manufacturing indices which declined) provides fake report and fraudulent lift .

El-Erian: Buy more foreign stocksEven in this century's darkest days of recession and war, U.S. households kept on spending. But one of the smartest investors on the planet says the American consumer is finally out of steam. Even if, and it is not, oil were the only problem, the same is just a disruption away from a spike. Suckers’ bear market/short-covering rally based on bull s**t alone, this time by wall street shill paulson whose bailout rhetoric brings ‘irrational exuberance’ since wall street frauds should be prosecuted, required to disgorge ill-gotten gains, and jailed since they’re the ones who benefited and are escaping accountability by the bailout. Except for multi-nationals and corporate welfare recipients (ie., Lockheed, etc.), greater than expected losses in not millions but billions rallied the stocks. Remember, these are huge financial institutions unlike the tiny S&Ls of the last banking fraud/wealth transfer (to frauds at expense of taxpayers). Leading indicators revised down (after ‘election year keep the incumbents’ fake report). What do you expect the wall street frauds/criminals who should be held accountable and the failed (and illegal- constitution would have to be amended to enable Fed to print those worthless Weimar dollars with now even failed Fannie and Freddie getting some with taxpayer bailout) Fed to say; admit they royally f**ked up, etc.,  better than expected very bad news, ie., Citibank loses only $2.5 billion, hyperinflation, over 200%  more (suuuuure!) than expected oil inventories, GM cuts dividend, Intel monopoly eliminates AMD, economy so bad less oil use/demand, riiiiight!

Specifically, the S&P 500 plunged 9.0%, settling near session lows.Consumers continue to curtail spending in the face of economic headwinds. Retail sales in September tumbled 1.2% month-over-month, the third consecutive monthly drop and largest decline in three years. The decrease was larger than the expected drop of 0.7%. Sales are down 1.0% compared to last year, marking the first year-over-year decline since October 2002.Separately, the Producer Price Index, an inflation reading, fell 0.4% in September due to a decrease in commodity prices.  Excluding food and energy, PPI rose 0.4%, which was more than the expected increase of 0.2%.Although credit markets are showing signs of improvement, there are concerns that a recovery will take longer than hoped for. Dollar Libor, which is the rate banks charge each other for short-term dollar loans, slightly declined across all terms for the second straight session, but remain at highly elevated states. This indicates banks are more willing to lend to each other, but are still showing extreme caution. In addition, there was a high demand for Treasuries as investors seek safety.An afternoon speech from Fed Chairman Bernanke and the release of the Fed's Beige Book did not give the market any real surprises, but painted a sobering economic picture and indicated that a recovery will take time.Economic concerns sparked broad-based selling, with 99% of the S&P 500 posting a loss and all ten of the economic sectors ending the day deep in the red.The energy sector (-15.5%) was hit the hardest, falling in conjunction with energy commodities. Crude prices tumbled 5.9% to $74.03 per barrel on global slowdown concerns and a cut in OPEC's demand forecast. On a similar note, commodity prices as a whole fell 4.5%, resulting in a 12.1% decline in the materials sector.Defensive oriented sectors consumer staples (-6.0%) and healthcare (-6.7%) outperformed on a relative basis, but still posted steep declines.In earnings news, quarterly results were mostly better-than-expected, although several companies that posted upside results still came under selling pressure.Some of the more notable names that topped expectations include Abbott Labs (ABT 53.40, -1.38) Coca-Cola (KO 44.19. +0.46), Intel (INTC 15.05, +0.88), JPMorgan Chase (JPM 38.34, -2.37) and Wells Fargo (WFC 32.76, -0.76).The S&P 500 is now up only 1.0% this week after giving up the majority of Monday's massive 11.6% gain.

Write Offs to Top $1.3 Trillion.Who didn’t see this coming?  The Next Crisis: 'Credit Default Swaps'-- Subprime is a Just a 'Vorspeise' U.S. faces global funding crisis, warns Merrill Lynch  More doom for global economy  Visualizing Dow 6,000   ] Yahoo: The stock market saw some swings on Tuesday, eventually settling with a modest loss, after the government's latest financial relief efforts were offset over fears that the broader economy will still face challenges.  Some investors decided to take some money off the table following the previous session's massive gains, which added to the selling pressure.The S&P 500 opened at its highs with a 4.1% gain, fell to a loss of 3.1% in the final hour of trade and then recovered to finish with a modest loss of 0.5%.Eight of the ten economic sectors posted a gain. A strong 6.4% advance in financials, aided by the government's relief plan, helped offset weakness in tech (-3.9%), materials (-3.0%) and small-cap stocks (-2.9%).  The weakness in tech caused the Nasdaq to underperform with a loss of 3.5%.With regard to the governments efforts, the Treasury will buy up to $250 billion in preferred stock from qualifying U.S. financial institutions, with the funds and authority coming from the $700 billion plan authorized by Congress earlier this month. To participate in the program, financial institutions will have to agree to executive compensation limits, including the elimination of golden parachutes. Participation in the program is voluntary, although it appears that firms will be taking the Treasury up on its offer. Nine of the largest financial institutions in the world will receive $125 billion, including Bank of America (BAC 26.42, +3.63), Citigroup (C 18.70, +2.95), JPMorgan Chase (JPM 40.80, -1.19), Morgan Stanley (MS 21.96, +3.86) and Wells Fargo (WFC 33.25, +2.85).In addition, the FDIC will guarantee the newly issued unsecured debt from banks through June 30, 2012. Meaning that if a bank fails, holders of newly issued debt will be paid by the FDIC. This includes interbank lending, which had seized up as banks hoarded cash. Separately, noninterest bearing deposit accounts will now be fully guaranteed, up from the current limit of $250,000, until the end of 2009.The U.S. government's plans are similar to action taken in Europe yesterday.Credit markets showed some signs of improvement, although they remain tight. Dollar Libor -- the rate that banks charge each for short-term loans -- fell across all terms. The Ted Spread fell 21 basis points to 4.36%. The TED spread measures the difference between what banks charge each other for three month loans (three month Libor) and what the Treasury pays (3-month T-bill).Earnings were mixed. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ 64.97, +2.29) posted third quarter earnings growth that topped estimates and raised its full year outlook. Conversely, PepsiCo (PEP 53.90, -7.87) reported smaller-than-expected earnings per share growth, excluding nonrecurring items, gave a downside full-year earnings outlook and announced job cuts.In commodity trading, oil prices came under selling pressure in conjunction with the pullback stocks, settling with a 2.3% loss at $79.35 per barrel after being up as much as 4.5%.  Commodities as a whole fell 0.8%.Treasury prices declined as the government's plan helped calm financial markets. The 10 year note fell 24 ticks, sending its yield above 4% for the first time since August.DJ30 -76.62 NASDAQ -65.24 NQ100 -4.5% R2K -2.8% SP400 -2.3% SP500 -5.34 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 908/2.74 bln/1751 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 1715/1.64 bln/1475 ..…    AP Business Highlights …       U.S. Economy: The Worst is Yet to Come , U.S. Bank Failures Loom ,   New reports give bleak outlook on housing, economy, Foreclosures hit a record high — and more coming,  Ford readies white-collar layoffs as sales tumble While GM Shutters 4 North american Factories/Lays off Workers (Reuters),  April insured mortgage defaults rise (Reuters)

Suckers’ bear market/short-covering rally based on bull s**t alone, this time by wall street shill paulson whose bailout rhetoric brings ‘irrational exuberance’ since wall street frauds should be prosecuted, required to disgorge ill-gotten gains, and jailed since they’re the ones who benefited and are escaping accountability by the bailout. Except for multi-nationals and corporate welfare recipients (ie., Lockheed, etc.), greater than expected losses in not millions but billions rallied the stocks. Remember, these are huge financial institutions unlike the tiny S&Ls of the last banking fraud/wealth transfer (to frauds at expense of taxpayers).

The S&P 500 settled with a loss of 1.2%, which was actually a pretty decent result considering how far it was down at session lows.The S&P 500 plunged 7.7% on the open with global economic fears driving the selling interest. The index then quickly bounced back into positive territory, only to retreat toward session lows in afternoon trade. Then, in the final hour of the session, the S&P 500 rebounded from a loss of 7.3% to a gain of 2.9%, and eventually ended the day with a loss of 1.2%.  Trading volume on the NYSE was one the third heaviest on record, with 2.95 billion shares exchanging hands.Eight of the ten economic sectors posted a loss.  Small-cap stocks outperformed, with the Russell 2000 surging 4.7%.Continued tightness of credit markets and uncertainty regarding the economic outlook fueled the volatility. The TED spread, which is the difference between what banks charge each other for three-month dollar loans (three-month Libor) and what the government pays (three-month T-Bill) rose 40 basis points to 4.64%. For comparison, the TED spread averaged 0.36% in 2006. The volatility index, which is considered to reflect market fear, spiked to its highest level on record.Overseas stock markets, which closed before the U.S. stock market rebounded, saw some of their worst sessions in decades. In Asian trading, Japan's Nikkei fell 9.6% and Hong Kong's Hang Seng dropped 7.2%. In Europe, London's FTSE fell 8.9%, Germany's DAX dropped 7.0% and France's CAC declined 7.7%.In corporate news, Lehman Brothers bonds were priced at 8.63 cents on the dollar during an auction by credit default swap (CDS) sellers, according to Creditfixings.com. In other words, firms that sold protection against Lehman defaulting on its debt, known as CDS, will be forced to pay 91.37 cents on the dollar to reimburse those who bought the protection -- resulting in steep losses for the firms that sold CDS.Separately, Morgan Stanley (MS 9.68, -2.77) and Goldman Sachs (GS 88.80, -12.55) tumbled 22.3% and 12.4%, respectively, after the long-term credit ratings of both companies were put on review for a downgrade at Moody's.Still, the financial sector (7.0%) outperformed, as traders scooped up the recently beaten up shares of real estate investment trusts, regional banks (+9.5%) and large diversified firms (+10.2%), such as JPMorgan Chase (JPM 41.64, +4.96) and Citigroup (C 14.11, +1.18).In earnings news, General Electric (GE 21.50, +2.49) posted a 10% year-over-year drop in third quarter earnings per share to $0.45, which met estimates. The company also said it is on track to meet its full year guidance and will maintain its dividend for the full year.  Shares of GE rallied 13%, helping the industrial sector outperform with a gain of 1.8%.Commodities plunged 6.7% and oil prices fell 6.9% to $80.61 per barrel as traders speculated a global economic slowdown will crimp consumption. The dollar advanced 1.6%, which also played a role in some of the decline in commodities.The drop in oil prices weighed on energy stocks, which fell 8.1%.For the week, the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 declined 18.2%, 15.3% and 18.2%, respectively. For the year, the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 are down 36.3%, 37.8% and 38.8%, respectively.

It should also be noted that despite the rhetoric, the wall street bailout will NOT solve the crisis or eliminate the economic pain except to make permanent the fraudulent wealth transfer to the most well healed heals/frauds/criminals in the nation who caused the so-called crisis by their greed/corruption/fraud.   All news decisively negative as WaMu becomes biggest bank to fail in US history (AP), GDP revised downward to 2.8% in second quarter (the market previously rallied on the false news and rallies again on the true bad news), only 30% at most support the taxpayer bailout of the wall street frauds so count on tax revolts as predicted by experts if the same passes , Sell into any rallies/take profits as all problems remain and will be exacerbated by the fact that the vast majority of taxpayers rationally and correctly opposed the bailout of the wall street criminals who benefited from the fraud.

Sell into any strength/take profits because with bank failures and raids on taxpayer funds and reckless printing like mad of worthless Weimar dollars and fake data/reports and lies this is worse than recession/bear market,  New Home Sales Plunged 11.5% to 17-Year Low and home inventories up, jobless claims up and durable goods orders down far more than expected, home prices drop by record 9.5%, existing home sales down 2.2% as they continue to foist the wall street criminal/fraud bailout on taxpayers which Bloomberg now pegs at a cost of $5 trillion while other economists/experts say hundreds of trillions [which means $700 billion down the tubes into the pockets of the wall street criminals (make them pay) who created the mess through their greed/fraud/scams and who’ve already reaped huge financial sums in the many billions through compensation/bonuses (mortgages, subprime and otherwise, are only a relatively small portion of the fraud/scam providing “cover/collateral” for the worthless but heavily commissioned paper over and over again in a multiplicity of different forms of worthless paper]; Motek’s financial expert, Financial Times Business Editor cites thoroughly gloomy economic picture globally and u.s. particularly, record levels of borrowing from fed, even with passage of bailout dire economic/financial scenario will remain, and axiomatic ‘buy on the rumor, sell on the news’ picture for stocks while his expert/economist/investor/entertainer (Ben Stein) says outrageous to bail out wall street criminals who should be in prison [and who should pay back/disgorge the hundreds of billions they’ve been scamming by repackaging/recollateralizing commissioning and reselling of which fraud/bubble I’ve been warning for over 5 years on this site-indeed they even have been exempted by congress for RICO liability and meaningfully lawless application of other laws as I reiterate in my RICO Summary under penalty of perjury to the FBI at their request including RICO violations by Sam Alito, former u.s. attorney (District of new jersey) who parlayed obstruction of justice (I’ve sworn to this regarding drug-money laundering) into judicial appointments to the 3rd circuit court of appeals with maryanne trump (Barry) and now the so-called supreme court (he should have gone to jail) justice; how could anyone even listen to bush (WMD’s in Iraq-I also warned against that debacle/fraud/war crimes/profiteering) ] and he further says let the ceo’s go and some of the failed institutions fail condemning the outrageousness of the lack of oversight in this huge fraud/wealth transfer; and hanky panky paulson the wall street shill whose $50 million in blind trust and $20 million in vanguard benefits from this bailout by the taxpayers, The Fed is Making a Killing on Banking Crisis , so  great opportunity to sell/take profits while you still can. One democrat said that with 3 months remaining in war criminal (remember the lies) bush’s lamentable failed presidency the grab based on fear that bailout of the criminals who caused the problem and made huge sums from their heavily commissioned fraud will avoid what already is can only be deemed another fraudulent wealth transfer akin to the war crimes in Iraq, which budget-busting conflict is also part of america’s problem, is preposterous on it’s face.A republican said that the so-called over-sight provision utilizes a standard of judicial review that would render impossible any purported review/abrogation (and after the fact at that) of paulson’s largesse to his bro’s on wall street and bush buddies.  Mike Stathis The Market Oracle September 22, 2008… As far as I’m concerned, anyone who doesn’t conduct a full investigation of this charade leading to several CEOs and other executives in prison with all of their assets being shuttled into America’s bailout fund doesn’t have what it takes to lead America anywhere except on its current course – downward. But it doesn’t really matter at this point anyway.

Suckers’ bear market/short-covering rally based on bull s**t alone, this time by wall street shill paulson whose bailout rhetoric brings ‘irrational exuberance’ since wall street frauds should be prosecuted, required to disgorge ill-gotten gains, and jailed since they’re the ones who benefited and are escaping accountability by the bailout. Except for multi-nationals and corporate welfare recipients (ie., Lockheed, etc.), greater than expected losses in not millions but billions rallied the stocks. Remember, these are huge financial institutions unlike the tiny S&Ls of the last banking fraud/wealth transfer (to frauds at expense of taxpayers).

A late-session sell-off took the Dow to its lowest level in more than five years and a long-time Dow component to its worst point since 1950. Trading was upbeat early on when tech bellwether IBM (IBM 89.00, -1.55) preannounced a third quarter earnings surprise, central banks in the Far East cut interest rates, and investors assessed comments from the Treasury that indicated it may inject capital directly into banks. Dow component IBM gave investors some temporary reassurance that the tech sector hasn't turned over. IBM said that third quarter earnings would total $2.05 per share, which is more than analysts were expecting. On the downside, the company did fall short of the consensus revenue forecast, but stated it remains confident it will hit its full-year earnings forecast of $8.75 per share. Tech posted a gain for much of the session, but finished 3.4% lower. Central banks in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan all moved to cut target interest rates, according to Financial Times. The move came just one day after the Federal Reserve and several other major central banks slashed interest rates in a coordinated effort to mitigate economic risks. Investors reacted to a speech made yesterday by Treasury Secretary Paulson that the recently approved $700 billion emergency financial rescue plan would permit direct capital infusions into banks. Reuters reported injections could start as soon as the end of the month. Despite the plan's intent to help shore up balance sheets at financial companies, the sector was hit with heavy selling pressure. It was up 3.6% early on, but closed 11.7% lower as every one of its industry groups floundered. Losses were most significant among regional banks (-15.2%), investment banks and brokers (-15.7%), and insurance companies (-16.8%). Part of the ongoing efforts to shore up the financial system have the New York Fed entering into an agreement with subsidiaries of AIG (AIG 2.39, -0.80). Their agreement calls for the subsidiaries to exchange investment grade fixed income securities for up to $37.8 billion in cash. The energy sector (-11.4%) also posted deep losses. The downturn is generally owed to fear of demand destruction for oil amid slower economic activity. In turn, oil futures were recently indicated below $85 per barrel, down nearly 12% year-to-date. That has OPEC calling for an emergency meeting Nov. 18. It is being presumed that OPEC will agree to cut production. Thursday marked the first session after the ban on short-selling certain financial stocks expired. The ban was originally limited to 799 financial stocks, but was later expanded to include some nonfinancial companies, such as Dow component General Motors (GM 4.76 -2.15). Shares of GM have been consistently listed on the Dow since 1925, but slumped to their lowest level since 1950 as participants assess the challenges facing the company. GM was placed on CreditWatch Negative at Standard & Poor's as the firm assessed the weakening state of global automotive markets, along with capital market conditions that remain challenging. Heavy selling pressure pushed the Dow well below 9000. The index has not been that low since mid-2003. The session's action also had the volatility index, VIX, above 60 for the first time ever. The latest initial claims report was generally relegated to the back burner since it didn't bring any surprises. Claims for the week ended Oct. 4 fell 20,000 to 478,000, which is generally in-line with the consensus estimate of 475,000.

One democrat said that with 3 months remaining in war criminal (remember the lies) bush’s lamentable failed presidency the grab based on fear that bailout of the criminals who caused the problem and made huge sums from their heavily commissioned fraud will avoid what already is can only be deemed another fraudulent wealth transfer akin to the war crimes in Iraq, which budget-busting conflict is also part of america’s problem, is preposterous on it’s face.A republican said that the so-called over-sight provision utilizes a standard of judicial review that would render impossible any purported review/abrogation (and after the fact at that) of paulson’s largesse to his bro’s on wall street and bush buddies.  Mike Stathis The Market Oracle September 22, 2008… As far as I’m concerned, anyone who doesn’t conduct a full investigation of this charade leading to several CEOs and other executives in prison with all of their assets being shuttled into America’s bailout fund doesn’t have what it takes to lead America anywhere except on its current course – downward.

The S&P 500 settled with a loss of 1.1% after a surge in selling interest in the final half-hour of trade sank stocks from a 2% gain. The S&P 500 traded as high as 2.5% and down as much as 2.5%. Eight of the ten economic sectors posted a loss in heavy trading volume.The Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, Bank of England, Swiss National Bank, Bank of Canada, and Sveriges Riksbank (Sweden) made an emergency intermeeting coordinated 50 basis point rate cut. Increased economic risks and moderating inflation pressures warranted the move in an effort to improve liquidity and reduce strains in the financial market, the Fed said. The fed funds rate is now at 1.50%, and the discount rate is at 1.75%.The move to cut interest rates came as global equities tumbled due to tight credit markets and economic worries. Japan's Nikkei plummeted 9.4% and Hong Kong's Hang Seng dropped 8.2%. Europe fell 6.0% as its financial institutions remain troubled -- Britain announced a plan to bailout its banking system, which included a pledge for $87 billion in direct support for eight major banks, according to reports.In corporate news, Bank of America (BAC 21.97, -1.80) fell 7.6% after its $10 billion common stock offering was priced at a 7.5% discount to yesterday's closing level and a 31.7% discount to BofA's closing level on Monday. BofA plunged more than 25% on Tuesday after announcing disappointing third quarter earnings, giving a dour outlook, cutting its dividend by 50% and announcing the $10 billion common stock offering.The financial sector (-3.0%) ended the session as a laggard after giving up a 3.9% gain in late-session selling pressure as investors were aware that the SEC short-selling ban is scheduled to expire at midnight tonight.Dow component Alcoa (AA 14.60, -2.11) marked the start of the third quarter earnings season on a negative note after the aluminum maker's results fell well short of expectations. Third quarter earnings per share dropped 40% year-over-year due to falling aluminum prices, softening demand and higher costs.Despite the weakness in Alcoa, the material sector outperformed with a gain of 2.6%. Agriculture chemical company Monsanto (MON 81.63, +7.45) pleased investors with its quarterly earnings report.Several retailers reported a decline in September same-store sales and cut their third quarter earnings outlook. Wal-Mart (WMT 54.57, -0.27) and Costco (COST 56.89, -0.91) both posted solid growth, however, benefiting from bargain-hunting consumers.In commodity trading, oil prices saw large swings, moving largely in tandem with stocks, as traders speculated how the global economic turmoil will impact demand. The government's weekly energy inventory data showed larger-than-expected increases in crude and gasoline stockpiles. Oil prices fell 1.6% to $88.64 per barrel.Despite the economic turmoil and uncertainty, Treasuries came under selling pressure after the government sold additional debt to meet high investor demand, according to reports.  The 10-year note dropped 46 ticks to send its yield up to 3.67%.The S&P 500 has posted six consecutive losses -- the longest losing streak since 2002.DJ30 -189.01 NASDAQ -14.55 NQ100 +0.1% R2K -2.2% SP400 -1.2% SP500 -11.29 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 728/3.52 bln/2054 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 749/2.1 bln/2451   ..…    AP Business Highlights …       U.S. Economy: The Worst is Yet to Come , U.S. Bank Failures Loom ,   New reports give bleak outlook on housing, economy, Foreclosures hit a record high — and more coming,  Ford readies white-collar layoffs as sales tumble While GM Shutters 4 North american Factories/Lays off Workers (Reuters),  April insured mortgage defaults rise (Reuters)

It should also be noted that despite the rhetoric, the wall street bailout will NOT solve the crisis or eliminate the economic pain except to make permanent the fraudulent wealth transfer to the most well healed heals/frauds/criminals in the nation who caused the so-called crisis by their greed/corruption/fraud.   All news decisively negative as WaMu becomes biggest bank to fail in US history (AP), GDP revised downward to 2.8% in second quarter (the market previously rallied on the false news and rallies again on the true bad news), only 30% at most support the taxpayer bailout of the wall street frauds so count on tax revolts as predicted by experts if the same passes , Sell into any rallies/take profits as all problems remain and will be exacerbated by the fact that the vast majority of taxpayers rationally and correctly opposed the bailout of the wall street criminals who benefited from the fraud.

One democrat said that with 3 months remaining in war criminal (remember the lies) bush’s lamentable failed presidency the grab based on fear that bailout of the criminals who caused the problem and made huge sums from their heavily commissioned fraud will avoid what already is can only be deemed another fraudulent wealth transfer akin to the war crimes in Iraq, which budget-busting conflict is also part of america’s problem, is preposterous on it’s face.A republican said that the so-called over-sight provision utilizes a standard of judicial review that would render impossible any purported review/abrogation (and after the fact at that) of paulson’s largesse to his bro’s on wall street and bush buddies.  Mike Stathis The Market Oracle September 22, 2008… As far as I’m concerned, anyone who doesn’t conduct a full investigation of this charade leading to several CEOs and other executives in prison with all of their assets being shuttled into America’s bailout fund doesn’t have what it takes to lead America anywhere except on its current course – downward.

Suckers’ bear market/short-covering rally based on bull s**t alone, this time by wall street shill paulson whose bailout rhetoric brings ‘irrational exuberance’ since wall street frauds should be prosecuted, required to disgorge ill-gotten gains, and jailed since they’re the ones who benefited and are escaping accountability by the bailout.

He said that economic activity is likely to be subdued through this year and into 2009 and increases in financial market turmoil may extend the period of weak economic performance.He did leave the door open for a FOMC rate cut on Oct. 29, although fed funds futures had already priced in a cut of at least 50 basis points.Bank of America, the second largest U.S. financial firm by market cap after JPMorgan Chase (JPM 39.86, -4.14), fell 26% after preannouncing disappointing third quarter earnings and giving a dour outlook regarding the state of the economy. In an attempt to shore up capital in the face of current economic conditions, BofA is cutting its quarterly dividend by 50% to $0.32 and plans to raise $10 billion in a common stock offering.CNBC reported the common stock offering was seeing weak demand, with an expected pricing of less than $25 per share. The notion that BofA would have to sell stock at a more than 22% discount added to overall investor unease, especially in the financial sector.The commercial paper market, which many U.S. companies rely on for short-term borrowing, has been under pressure as investors flocked to the safety of Treasuries and away from money market funds. As a result, many companies found it difficult to issue commercial paper, or had to pay a high cost.In an attempt to bring down the cost of commercial paper costs and improve liquidity, the Fed announced this morning that it created a Commercial Paper Funding Facility, which will provide a liquidity backstop for the strained commercial paper market. The Fed will purchase three-month unsecured and asset-backed commercial paper from eligible issuers. The Fed said it has no limit to how much commercial paper it can buy. Separately, commodities (+1.0%) staged a modest recovery effort from Monday's 5.0% drop, aided by a 0.8% decline in the dollar. Crude prices rose 2.3% to $89.80 per barrel.The S&P 500's loss marked its fifth consecutive decline -- its longest losing streak since January. The index has fallen 14.5% over the past five sessions and is down 32.2% this year.DJ30 -508.39 NASDAQ -108.08 NQ100 -5.8% R2K -6.2% SP400 -5.4% SP500 -60.66 NASDAQ Dec/Adv/Vol 2370/434/2.82 bln NYSE Dec/Adv/Vol 2815/386/1.73 bln ..…    AP Business Highlights …       U.S. Economy: The Worst is Yet to Come , U.S. Bank Failures Loom ,   New reports give bleak outlook on housing, economy, Foreclosures hit a record high — and more coming,  Ford readies white-collar layoffs as sales tumble While GM Shutters 4 North american Factories/Lays off Workers (Reuters),  April insured mortgage defaults rise (Reuters)

It should also be noted that despite the rhetoric, the wall street bailout will NOT solve the crisis or eliminate the economic pain except to make permanent the fraudulent wealth transfer to the most well healed heals/frauds/criminals in the nation who caused the so-called crisis by their greed/corruption/fraud.   All news decisively negative as WaMu becomes biggest bank to fail in US history (AP), GDP revised downward to 2.8% in second quarter (the market previously rallied on the false news and rallies again on the true bad news), only 30% at most support the taxpayer bailout of the wall street frauds so count on tax revolts as predicted by experts if the same passes , Sell into any rallies/take profits as all problems remain and will be exacerbated by the fact that the vast majority of taxpayers rationally and correctly opposed the bailout of the wall street criminals who benefited from the fraud.

One democrat said that with 3 months remaining in war criminal (remember the lies) bush’s lamentable failed presidency the grab based on fear that bailout of the criminals who caused the problem and made huge sums from their heavily commissioned fraud will avoid what already is can only be deemed another fraudulent wealth transfer akin to the war crimes in Iraq, which budget-busting conflict is also part of america’s problem, is preposterous on it’s face.A republican said that the so-called over-sight provision utilizes a standard of judicial review that would render impossible any purported review/abrogation (and after the fact at that) of paulson’s largesse to his bro’s on wall street and bush buddies.  Mike Stathis The Market Oracle September 22, 2008… As far as I’m concerned, anyone who doesn’t conduct a full investigation of this charade leading to several CEOs and other executives in prison with all of their assets being shuttled into America’s bailout fund doesn’t have what it takes to lead America anywhere except on its current course – downward.
