10/28/2011 - Why I keep hammering on the “hope vs. reality” theme!

Mike Larson | Friday, October 28, 2011 at 7:30 am
 
Mike Larson
We’ve had one heck of a party on Wall Street in the past few weeks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shot up from 10,404 on October 4 through 11,891 yesterday — a gain of 1,487 points in just 22 calendar days.
The reasons I hear most often cited?
Hope for the mega-bailout in Europe.
Hope for a mega-refinance plan that will help every beleaguered homeowner in the U.S.
Hope for a mega-compromise from the deficit “Super Committee.”
And hope that fund managers — who are hopelessly falling behind their benchmarks — will just throw money at any piece of you-know-what stock to try to make up their performance gaps so they don’t get fired come January 1.
That’s a big heaping of hope, as far as I’m concerned. And unfortunately for the bulls, hope is now colliding with reality — and not in a good way! That tells me we’re due for more losses … possibly very soon!

Hope vs. Reality, European Edition
Let’s start with the bailout talk from Europe. The latest market hopes, based on the European Union summit we had this week, are that European banks are going to take 50 percent haircuts on their Greek debt … that the 440-billion euro European Financial Stability Fund will be leveraged up to 1 trillion in a couple of different ways … and that banks will be backstopped with around 100 billion euros in additional capital.

That all sounds good on the surface. But when you look at the action in the European BOND market, you see that real-money investors just aren’t buying the happy talk! They apparently don’t believe European politicians can afford to do what they say they can do!

Italian 10-year yields have surged up toward 6 percent again, closing in on the highs they set several weeks back. Spanish and Portuguese yields are also climbing. And the difference between yields on French and German debt just exploded to an all-time high. This is all happening AFTER the European Central Bank started buying PIIGS bonds in a futile attempt to prop up their prices and AFTER the outlines of the latest bailout schemes were leaked to the market.

Do you want a brutal dose of reality? Do you want to know why European officials have met 20 times this year alone — and STILL failed to come up with a bailout that actually works?
Then here it is:

The peripheral European countries are virtually broke. The only way they can survive over the long term is if their debt burdens are slashed dramatically. At the same time, countries like Germany and France can’t afford to spend hundreds of billions of euros bailing out their neighbors without destroying their own balance sheets!

Plus, the circular nature of this bailout fund is downright ludicrous! You literally have countries like Italy and Spain borrowing money and putting those funds into the bailout fund … so it can turn around and spend that money buying up those countries’ bonds.
Does that make sense to you? Does that sound like a plan that can actually work over the long term? Bond investors sure don’t think so, because the yield on the EFSF’s OWN outstanding bonds are climbing, a sign that the fund’s AAA status is slowly coming into question.

Hope vs. Reality, Housing Edition
Here in the U.S., housing stocks and banks rallied sharply heading into this week amid rumors of a mass refinance program from the Obama administration. Many borrowers are upside down on their mortgages, owing more than their homes are worth. There was hope that essentially all of them would be permitted to refinance into new, cheaper mortgages as part of the new plan.
But the program rolled out on Monday looks like yet another “nothing sandwich” in a long line of them! The original Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) was supposed to help as many as 5 million borrowers. Only 900,000 have participated.

The HARP changes we just learned about will ease appraisal requirements and reduce fees associated with refinancing. But because of the nature of the changes, and restrictions and fees that still apply to home loans, the new, improved HARP will likely only allow a couple hundred thousand more borrowers to refinance over the next few years.

That’s nowhere near enough to make a dent in the broad economy or housing market, considering some 11 million homeowners are underwater, according to CoreLogic estimates. In fact, Royal Bank of Scotland estimated that only 17 percent of the outstanding, 30-year Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgages will qualify for a refi under the new plan.

Home prices just took another big drop, pushing  even more owners underwater.
Home prices just took another big drop, pushing even more owners underwater.
Meanwhile, the housing news isn’t getting any better. Existing homes lost almost 4 percent of their value versus a year ago in August, according to S&P/Case-Shiller. New home prices plunged 10.4 percent in September, the biggest decline in more than two years.
Applications for home purchase mortgages remain mired in the muck. And confidence is completely lacking — with American consumers more negative about their circumstances than at any time since March 2009!

Hope vs. Reality, Super Committee Edition
Finally, there’s the deadline Wall Street investors haven’t been talking about much recently because of all the European shenanigans. That would be the November 23 deadline for deficit-reduction recommendations from the so-called “Super Committee.”
The committee of 12 Republicans and Democrats is supposed to come up with proposals to reduce spending and raise revenue over the next several years. If the committee doesn’t come up with a plan, then $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts are supposed to kick in beginning in 2013.
All the reports I’m seeing suggest this will be the nothing sandwich to end all nothing sandwiches! Committee members are hopelessly deadlocked, with Republicans unwilling to raise substantial amounts of revenue and Democrats unwilling to cut spending and entitlement programs in any meaningful way.

Super Committee struggles to  make progress as clock ticks.
Super Committee struggles to make progress as clock ticks.
Why is this so important?
Because Standard & Poor’s has already cut its AAA rating on U.S. sovereign debt. Fitch and Moody’s punted, citing the creation of the Super Committee as a reason for optimism that some kind of deal would be reached to bring the deficit down. When (not if, in my opinion) the Super Committee bombs, they won’t have any more excuses. They’ll have to take action. S&P could even cut the rating further.

This is the next major crisis that Wall Street fund managers are trying to get you to ignore. After all, if they don’t manage to prop up the market through year-end, how can they collect their hefty bonuses and stake out a nice Hamptons homestead next summer?
My take is simple: Please don’t rely on hope when it comes to investing. Look at the cold, hard facts and reality on the ground. They suggest we haven’t seen the worst for stocks, despite the recent rally, and that caution remains your best investment bet!

10/28/2011 - Australian Exchange Operates Without a Glitch

October 28, 2011
Tom Steinert-Threlkeld

The Australian Securities Exchange operated normally on Friday, executing nearly twice as many trades as on Thursday.

The exchange, in its last day as the only marketplace down under for trading in shares listed in Australia, carried out 844,411 equity trades.

That compares to 436,077 carried out the day before – when trading was shut down for four hours due to a technical glitch that kept traders from connecting to the exchange.
Neither the ASX nor its technology provider, Nasdaq OMX Group, had further comment on the cause of Thursday’s outage. They continue to look for a root cause.

Eleven months ago, ASX moves its trading platform, ASX Trade, onto Nasdaq OMX’s Genium INET “next-generation” trading system that can handle orders in under 100 millionths of a second.
In the ASX case, the latency on executing orders was cut from 30 thousandths of a second in 2008 to 300 millionths, at the outset in December 2010.

The near-doubling of equities trading essentially made up for the drop on Thursday, which was expected to be buoyant upon the announcement of a deal to stem the European debt crisis.
And even with the four-hour outage, volume in options contracts on Thursday was near normal.

"When trading came back on, ASX was at pains to explain to me they did something close to the normal day's training in the remaining two hours - it was about $4.3 billion and a large volume of options was sorted," Financial Services Minister Bill Shorten said, according to The Australian.
Thursday’s outage was the second in the 11 months that ASX Trade has been operating on Genium INET technology.

The exchange experienced a 90-minute outage in February.

Chi-X Australia, part of Chi-X Global and backed by GETCO, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs, opens for trading on Monday. Chi-X operates all-electronic, high-speed alternative venues in Canada and Japan, as well.

Its Chi-Tech unit supplies technology services to its exchange operations. Nasdaq OMX took the INET technology it acquired in 2005 from Instinet and markets it to exchanges around the world, such as the ASX.

Instinet, now largely an agency-only broker serving institutional traders, is a pioneer in the off-exchange electronic trading of stocks, dating back to 1967. Its name is a contraction of Institutional Networks.

Instinet is the founder of Chi-X Global and its largest shareholder.
Chi-X uses technology developed after Instinet sold its original INET technology to Nasdaq.

Japanese University Detects Atmospheric Precursor To 2011 Megaquake

Most scientists believe that earthquakes are inherently unpredictable, and reports of various kinds of earthquake precursor signals have been difficult to verify. However, in a new study, a researcher from Hokkaido University ...

Analysing data from the Japanese GPS network the team, Kosuke Heki from the University’s Department of Natural History Sciences has detected an increase in the total electron content in the ionosphere above the focal region of the earthquake beginning about 40 minutes

Atmosphere Above Japan Heated Rapidly Before M9 Earthquake

Published in Geophysical Research Letters , findings about the Japan Mega Quake, Japanese scientists also found the same anomalies surrouding the 8.8 Chile Mega Quake, and possibly the Sumatra magnitude 9.2 earthquake, and possibly the 1994 magnitude 8.3 Hokkaido earthquake!

Furthermore, and what is really interesting is that although previous studies have shown that earthquakes can trigger atmospheric waves that travel upward and disturb the ionosphere afterwards the scientists find that it is unclear how an ionospheric disturbance could occur before an earthquake begins.



Hosuke Heki states that, unlike previously suggested earthquake precursors, the TEC enhancement before the Tohoku quake had obvious spatial and temporal correlation between the quake and precursor signal as well as clear magnitude dependence.










There is no greater teacher than experience itself.

Here are a couple of links to other papers that have established a link between the ionosphere and earthquakes in a field of science called seismicelectromagnitism.


Principle Component Analysis was able to discriminate clear ionospheric total electron content anomalies in the months when all 18 earthquakes occurred, and such anomalies existed earlier than this 5-day statistical window

The main and probably most important conclusion lies in the fact that the level of our present knowledge of ionospheric precursors of earthquake permits us to use them already in short term earthquake prediction

Something is going on and trust is in very short supply these days.

Yes, back before 1935...Tesla with a device that fit in his pocket was able to cause earthquakes.


E Sparling - NY World-Telegram, July, 1935


Tesla tells of "Quake" he induced:

He said, among other things, that he expects to have $100,000,000 within two years, and he revealed that an earthquake which drew police and ambulances to the region of his laboratory at 48 E. Houston St. in 188.7 or 1888 was the result of a little machine he was experimenting with at that time which "you could put in your overcoat pocket."

The bewildered newspapermen pounced upon this as at least one thing they could understand and "the father of modern electricity" told what had happened as follows: -

"I was experimenting with vibrations. I had one of my machines going and I wanted to see if I could get it in tune with the vibration of the building. I put it up notch after notch. There was a peculiar cracking sound.

"I asked my assistants where did the sound come from. They did not know. I put the machine up a few more notches. There was a louder cracking sound. I knew I was approaching the vibration of the steel building. I pushed the machine a little higher.

"Suddenly all the heavy machinery in the place was flying around. I grabbed a hammer and broke the machine. The building would have been down about our ears in another few minutes. Outside in the street there was pandemonium. The police and ambulances arrived. I told my assistants to say nothing. We told the police it must have been an earthquake. That's all they ever knew about it."

today is now october 26th and the past few weeks driving around in my work van i have seen numerous black military helicopters flying all over the Boston area from the north shore all the way to cape cod.
i have just done a Google search and this even came up.....

articles.boston.com...

does this not seem like a problem?? i feel like im the only person noticing this..... between fema doing their emergency broadcasting on nov 9th and obama bringing all the troops home before Christmas (which seems impossible) to me it seems like were gearing up for something MAJOR. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Hold on a damn minute, did anyone else catch the mayor saying the Navy Seals were part of it.....sorry, but last time I checked, the military was not to be unleashed into an american city.......What are the Seals doing training in Boston? FEMA, NG, SWAT.....there are a ton of tactical units that are authorized to function inside the US, the SEALS are not one of those units, except in defense of our borders.

eveyone i have tried to add these two videos but i keep getting a video error, ill just add the links. sorry.

Kind of similar to something in the news from florida earlier this year...

April 21, 2011

Miami-Dade County seems to have become a staging ground in preparation of a militarized police state.

The latest event was reported on by The Miami-Herald when a scene right out of the movie Conspiracy Theory led residents to start Tweeting about “pitch black” military helicopters dropping men onto buildings, including the Bank of America building, beginning around 9:15 p.m. as witnessed in the video below:





Miami-Dade County already has become infamous among lovers of freedom for being the first local police department to order surveillance drones.

Although the purpose of this latest drill was not immediately released, residents, local police, and the U.S. Coast Guard were kept in the dark about the arrival of the Southeast Regional Domestic Security Task Force.

"Police used tear gas, concussion bombs, direct sound weapons, and rubber bullets to break up peaceful protestors who are participating in a classic "sit in" protest. 

Message to mayors, city councils, police chiefs and street cops of America: it is NOT UP TO YOU whether or not Americans get to peacably gather, protest, discuss, play music, use megaphones, or wear masks. It's up to a document, ratified 224 years ago, called the US CONSTITUTION."

Today, there are protests all over America that are targeting "the one percent" and all of the wealth and power that they have accumulated.  Unfortunately, many of the solutions that these protesters are advocating simply will not work and will not lead to less wealth inequality.  To understand this, you have to understand how we got to this point.  Over the past several decades, our federal government has exploded in size and our large corporations have exploded in size.  In fact, we have seen this pattern happen pretty much all over the world.

10/24/2011 - Six Mega Drops of the Flash Crash; Sam Adams Goes Flat


Exelon Corp. is one of the largest, most powerful utilities in the world, typically worth some $30 billion. For a brief moment Thursday, the stock market said it was worthless.
Exelon was just one of a number of stocks that produced bizarre, and presumably garbled, market quotes during the “Flash Crash” of the afternoon.
Another was Boston Beer Company, producer of Samuel Adams. During that period, the company hit zero after opening at $59.44. It closed at $55.82.
Boston Beer and Exelon were hardly alone. Here’s a look at a few other companies that endured some of the most extreme swings in Wall Street history.
Accenture:
The consultancy opened at $41.94, hit zero at around 2:50 and then closed at $41.09.
ACN
Exelon:
The utility opened at $43.35, hit zero and then closed at $41.86.
EXC
CenterPoint Energy:
The utility opened at $14.39, hit zero and then closed at $13.88
CNP
TransMontaigne Partners:
The transportation company opened at $27.46, hit zero and then closed at $27.50.
TMP
Impax Laboratories:
Thespecialty pharmaceutical company opened at $18.48, hit zero and then closed at $17.78.
IPXL
Sothey’s:
While the other companies on this list hit zero briefly, Sotheby’s went in the other direction. After opening at $34.61, its shares briefly touched $100,000 before closing at $33.

10/24/2011 - Bank Of America Forces Depositors To Backstop Its $53 Trillion Derivative Book To Prevent A Few Clients From Departing The Bank


Bank of America, which today reported a big bottom line loss net of one-time beneficial items, did something quite tricky and extremely devious last month: it shifted anywhere up to the total of $53 trillion of the total derivatives it held as of June 30 (as Zero Hedge previously reported) on its books at Q2 from the Holding Company, which was downgraded last by Moody's from A2 to Baa1 (the third-lowest investment grade rating) to its retail bank, which was downgraded to the far more palatable A2 (from Aa3). The reason for the transfer? Bank customers who were uneasy with the fact that suddenly the collateral backstoping the operating entity handling their counterparty risk was downgraded to just above junk, demanded that said counterparty risk be mitigated by the bank's $1 trillon in deposits. In other words, as Bloomberg first reported when it broke this story, anywhere up to the full $53 trillion (we don't know for sure how much so we assume the worst case) is now fully and effectively backstopped explicitly by the bank's $1,041 trillion (as of September 30) deposits. Pardon, we meant the people's deposits: the same deposits which caused the bank's website to be inoperative for several days in a row after it was rumored that there was an electronic run on the bank. Why? Just so Bank of America can appears whatever remaining clients it has so they decide not to take their business to another derivative counterparty. And who is exposed to this latest idiocy? Why you. But that's not all: the FDIC, which is the entity backstopping the deposits in a worst-case scenario, is not happy with this move for obvious reasons. Yet even it is hopeless to override the Fed, which as Bloomberg reports, "has signaled that it favors moving the derivatives to give relief to the bank holding company." And so, once again, we see just how much more important to the Federal Reserve are interests of US taxpayers and savers, over those of the banks that effectively run the Fed.
Bank of America Corp. (BAC), hit by a credit downgrade last month, has moved derivatives from its Merrill Lynch unit to a subsidiary flush with insured deposits, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. disagree over the transfers, which are being requested by counterparties, said the people, who asked to remain anonymous because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. The Fed has signaled that it favors moving the derivatives to give relief to the bank holding company, while the FDIC, which would have to pay off depositors in the event of a bank failure, is objecting, said the people. The bank doesn’t believe regulatory approval is needed, said people with knowledge of its position.

Jerry Dubrowski, a spokesman for Charlotte, North Carolina- based Bank of America, declined to comment on the transfers or the firm’s discussions with regulators. The company “continues to accommodate the needs of our clients through each of our multiple trading entities, including Bank of America NA,” he said in an e-mailed statement, referring to the company’s deposit-taking unit.

Barbara Hagenbaugh, a Fed spokeswoman, said she couldn’t discuss supervision of specific institutions. Greg Hernandez, an FDIC spokesman, declined to comment.
The catalyst: the Moody's downgrade of the bank to a rating far more indicative of BAC's insolvent (aka D) status:
Moody’s Investors Service downgraded Bank of America’s long-term credit ratings Sept. 21, cutting both the holding company and the retail bank two notches apiece. The holding company fell to Baa1, the third-lowest investment-grade rank, from A2, while the retail bank declined to A2 from Aa3.

The Moody’s downgrade spurred some of Merrill’s partners to ask that contracts be moved to the retail unit, which has a higher credit rating, according to people familiar with the transactions. Transferring derivatives also can help the parent company minimize the collateral it must post on contracts and the potential costs to terminate trades after Moody’s decision, said a person familiar with the matter.
"All perfectly normal"
The moves by Bank of America are part of “the normal course of dealings that we’ve had with counterparties since Merrill Lynch and BofA came together,” Thompson said today.
Moving derivatives contracts between units of a bank holding company is limited under Section 23A of the Federal Reserve Act, which is designed to prevent a lender’s affiliates from benefiting from its federal subsidy and to protect the bank from excessive risk originating at the non-bank affiliate, said Saule T. Omarova, a law professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law.
With the Fed's blessing:
Moving derivatives contracts between units of a bank holding company is limited under Section 23A of the Federal Reserve Act, which is designed to prevent a lender’s affiliates from benefiting from its federal subsidy and to protect the bank from excessive risk originating at the non-bank affiliate, said Saule T. Omarova, a law professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law.

In 2009, the Fed granted Section 23A exemptions to the banking arms of Ally Financial Inc., HSBC Holdings Plc, Fifth Third Bancorp, ING Groep NV, General Electric Co., Northern Trust Corp., CIT Group Inc., Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., among others, according to letters posted on the Fed’s website.

The central bank terminated exemptions last year for retail-banking units of JPMorgan, Citigroup, Barclays Plc, Royal Bank of Scotland Plc and Deutsche Bank AG. The Fed also ended an exemption for Bank of America in March 2010 and in September of that year approved a new one.

Section 23A “is among the most important tools that U.S. bank regulators have to protect the safety and soundness of U.S. banks,” Scott Alvarez, the Fed’s general counsel, told Congress in March 2008.
In other words, while previously there had been a firewall between the bank's depository entity and the one that gambles, on either a flow or prop basis, with the abovementioned multi-trillion number, that firewall is now gone and all the money has been comminlged, explaining the FDIC's fear. And of course, in order to thank depositors for being explicit guarantors of the bank's derivative business, it is now forcing them to pay a $5/month fee.
Somehow we really doubt the 12/31 update will show a "total deposits" number over $1 trillion. Or anywhere remotely close.

10/24/2011 - America's Boomtown: North Dakota housing crunch


They're pulling in fat paychecks, but now they're also homeless.
In the town of Williston, N.D., America's newest oil boomtown, more than 6,000 job seekers have come from every corner of the country looking for work. Yet, oil companies and other developers haven't been able to build housing units fast enough.
In the past year, only about 2,000 new housing units have been built, leaving many workers out in the cold.
With dozens of job seekers arriving by the day and fewer and fewer spots for them live in, people are taking some desperate measures.
Newer arrivals who can't find vacant hotel rooms or apartments sleep in their cars or in sleeping bags on spare patches of grass along the highway. The luckier ones nab a spot in one of the dozens of dorm-like facilities, known as "man camps," that the oil companies have built to house their workers.
The living conditions are far from ideal, but to some of these workers the lure of doubling or tripling their salaries far outweighs the physical and mental toll it can take.
My street address is the Walmart parking lot
In July, Matt was transferred from a Walmart in Minnesota to Williston's only Walmart -- more than doubling his salary. After arriving in the town he bought an RV to live in and soon realized that the store's parking lot was going to be the closest thing to home he was going to have for some time.
Each day, he buys something from the 24-hour Supercenter so he has an excuse to stay there. At night, Matt (who asked that his last name not be used) and his neighbors break out their lawn chairs, a grill and some beers and tell stories into the wee hours about where they have come from and what they are doing -- or hope to do -- with the money they will make off of this black gold rush.
"Some people look at us like we're homeless," he said. "But anyone who needs to find us can find us -- we have a street address: it's 4001 2nd Ave., Walmart."
LaRae and Scott Miles have been living with their two kids and three dogs in an RV parked in a Williston campground since moving from Washington more than a year ago.
"It's crazy to go from having a home and a yard to living in an 8-by-10 trailer with no yard," said their daughter Kimberly, a sophomore in high school whose belongings are in a suitcase stowed at the end of her bed. "It's going to be a great day when we find a house."
Before the move, the Miles' were struggling to make ends meet. Now, Scott is making $20 an hour as a truck driver -- double his previous salary.
"I'm happy we moved out here, but I'm not happy about how we live," said LaRae. "We're looking for something more permanent to rent, but this is about all we can do."
Life in the "man camps"
Even those who have a place to live find the conditions tough. Many of the major oil companies that are cashing in on the oil discovered in the Bakken formation have been renting entire floors of hotels, spare apartments or building housing facilities -- called "lodges" by some and "man camps" by others -- in order to house their workers.
Halliburton, one of the major drilling and hydraulic fracturing companies in the region, even went so far as to have the Olympic Village housing units that were used for the security guards from the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics relocated to the town for its workers.
Benjamin Lukes, 31, has been living in Halliburton's "man camp" for almost a year now.
Lukes is bringing in roughly $100,000 a year (including overtime pay), nearly triple the amount he made back in Minnesota when he was manufacturing plastics. But it means being far from his family and living in quarters that he likens to a "prison cell."
The facility is wall-to-wall white, with long empty hallways and flourescent lighting. Lukes' room is about 160 square feet, the walls are bare -- except for a drawing from his daughter -- and there's a metal-framed twin bed.
The $400 a month he pays for rent includes housekeeping and three complimentary meals a day, making it the best deal around, he said. But he will never call it home.
"[My wife and I] talked about trying to find something in the area where I could bring them, he said. One of the local hotels said they would have an apartment suite available in February for $6,700 a month. "[Y]ou can imagine that wasn't a real good option... there's just nowhere to put them."
Lukes hates that he missed the birth of his son this year, but knows he can't support his growing family without this job.
"Each work cycle as I drive away seeing my two-year-old daughter's face in the window, I wonder how much longer I can keep this up," he said. "In the meantime, though, I keep getting promotions, and raises, and bonuses. It's a mixed blessing."
Cindy Marchello, who is 54 and from Logan, Utah, works for a trucking company and is the only woman living in her man camp. She pays $600 a month and has to share a bathroom with a man.
"I miss my family," she said, sitting near the frames full of family photos she keeps on her bureau. "When I leave [after going home to visit], I have to leave in the middle of the night. I can't tell everyone goodbye. And I cry all the way back."
Efforts are being made to build more housing in Williston and other oil boomtowns. Some even see it as an investment opportunity.
Former New England Patriots football player Jarvis Green and his company, First Millenium Construction, are building a 500-person man camp in Watford City, less than 50 miles south of Williston. Green said he expects to make a 200% to 300% return on the multi-million dollar investment, and he said the lodge should be completed by the end of the year.
"Out there they don't have a recession -- you say that word out there and somebody would probably slap you," said Green. "It's the place to be."
