END THE FED

According to the organizer of these rallies, they have now spread to up to 100 cities and have a combined attendee base of around 20,000. What is also interesting, is that the mainstream media in Germany is calling them Nazis. In Germany, if you don’t support Central Banking, this apparently means you are a Nazi. What a joke. Just more proof mainstream media everywhere is complete and total propaganda. It is also a good sign, since it shows the desperate lengths to which the power structure will go to keep their criminal ponzi alive.

Do these folks seem like Nazis to you?


Tesco Super Market Giant Fast Disappearing Down a Financial Black Hole

Tesco, Britain’s giant supermarket chain continues in its death spiral trend towards eventually becoming a mere fraction of its former size as barely a few weeks after its latest profit warning of a 25% collapse, today we find out that its financial controllers (bankers) and accountants can’t control or count anything as the management wakes up to find that £250 million of expected profits no longer exists the news of which wiped out £2 billion in market capitalisation as panicked stock holders belatedly start to jump ship as the mega-corp is literally disappearing down a financial black hole.

The Tesco board reacted to the vanishing £250million by suspending Tesco’s top management, so now one of Britain’s biggest companies does not have any one running it at the top, primed to collapse further into a black hole as we wait to see what next big financial accounting scam is taking place at Tesco.

I’ll tell you what I think really happened, the same thing that happened with the banks, top management in a state of denial that their company is in free fall to the extent that they would make up profits gambling that the company can be turned around before the SHTF.

Tesco stock Investors in a state of denial if not shock who have clung on in hopes for a recovery have now been dealt a further cold hard dose of reality as what was revealed today is a company that is managed by so called finance experts that can’t even count!

The Tesco stock price continues its death spiral towards becoming a penny stock that currently stands at £2.03, down near 50% from when I first warned of the dangers of holding Tesco stock in October last year when the Tesco stock price was just 3% shy of its 2013 peak of £3.86, warning that the Tesco management had become focused on club card gimmicks whilst ignoring what customers really wanted which was GOOD customer service and VALUE FOR MONEY, and similarly have warned several times since that the Stock was literally in a death spiral. Those who have not heeded my calls to date to exit this doomed suicidal stock need to realise that it is still a long way down to ZERO! Or more probably to a level with sparks a hostile takeover.

31 Aug 2014 – Tesco Supermarket Death Spiral Latest Profits Warning and Dividend Slashed

Tesco stock Investors in a state of denial if not shock who clung on in hopes for a recovery have now been dealt a cold hard reality as they see their dividend slashed by 75% to just 1.1p a share, so that Tesco can bolster its balance sheet by an extra £1 billion per annum that too ultimately will vanish down the expanding black hole that seeks to consume the super market giant.

Why Institutions Are So Desperate For The Retail Investor To Come Back

As the S&P 500 levitates ever higher on the back of what even JPM and Citigroup now both admit is nothing but a global central-bank reflated bubble which, hardly a spoiler alert here, will burst sooner or later leaving those who are holding the bag with unprecedented losses, one thing is clear: the retail investor is not coming back. Whether it is a complete lack of trust in a market that has been revealed to be more rigged than any casino, or because every risk asset is artificially propped up by a few Princeton economists, or simply because the “retail” investor does not have the disposable income to come back, is irrelevant: retail is done.

There is, however, a problem.

As the exuberant talking-heads proclaim, day after day, that “this is the moment of clarity for retail to come storming back off the sidelines”, the question arises who exactly would retail be buying from?

The answer: the same institutions whose proximity to the Fed has allowed them to lever up at near zero cost of debt rates, and who have bid up risk to unprecedented levels, pushing the S&P over 2000 in recent weeks. Of course, those are all paper gains, as institutions know all too well. Which is why the time to monetize paper profits is now, and why with every day that retail refuses to come back and buy what institutions are increasingly desperate to sell, is one day more in which the day of “paper profits into very real losses” reckoning approaches.

This epic divergence between institutions and retail is shown in the JPM chart below.

 

Needless to say, it won’t take much is for the rickety game theory equilibrium in which not one institution has dared to sell, over fears what would happen if every other institutions rushes in, finally breaks.

It is also why every media outlet, newspaper, ant TV channel has a simple message for you, dear retail investor: please come back already, and buy, buy, buy… what every bank, prop desk, hedge fund, mutual fund, pension fund, and central bank, is so desperate to sell.

Today, hundreds gathered in New York City’s financial district to protest climate change. Flood Wall Street demonstrators wore blue as a symbol of climate change-induced flooding, and marched in the financial district to “highlight the role of Wall Street in fueling the climate crisis,” organizers said.

Today’s march follows Sunday’s international day of action that drew more than 300,000 demonstrators to NYC streets in the largest single protest ever held over climate change.

NYPD won’t release official arrest numbers yet, but Twitter coverage indicates arrests are under way, as some participants engage in planned peaceful civil disobedience.

From the Guardian:

The demonstration comes a day ahead of the United Nations climate summit and follows Sunday’s People’s Climate March – which saw what organizers estimated was 310,000 people marching in New York City, and tens of thousands of others in 150 countries across the world, demonstrating in an effort to put pressure on world leaders to act now to slow the damaging effects of climate change.
