Examine my most recent posts and contemplate:

Then waddaya know, this well-known poster showed up and voila, he said
"Mr. Spy, you are using recent past to predict immediate future. In my limited experience, that method does not work well in the financial markets. You might as well find out the positions of moon and Venus over the last few weeks, and identify some pattern."

Moon and Venus eh? Check it out, it's still very recent, and the blog is just right under the previous one.

Today I pull out the AUD chart and it looks like this, wow, and this is NOT good enough to some????!

Additionally, in the personal blog of that-poster-who-shan't-be-named, I wrote:
" MTGSPY said... I sensed it too, and it's because Ob-timis-bama-ism.Dont you dare short the market here, What are you thinking? The first black man to be ;resident and y'all wanna shit in the carpet? Bama Market Patrol will be in full force for a week - think Zimbabwean stock market for a while now.November 2, 2008 1:44 PM"

Well? OK, last words:

Nice call, Mr. Spy.

I started shorting ES and will add more tomorrow. Change is coming :)

MTGSPY said...

You are welcome Greenie. Change is indeed coming.

Greenie said...

Good trading.

If Obama is a smart guy, would he want the market to crash before he take over the WH?

It does not any sense at all for obama to come out and say anything to pump up the market.

Greenie said...

Wow, what a change in sentiment. From 'Obama brigade buying every stock indices for a week' to 'Obama crashing the market now to make him look good' :)

If Obama is so smart, he wouldn't be president here. There is nothing that can prevent him to look like Hoover or Boris Yeltsin four years down the road.

You got a point there. But he is not stupid either. LOL

I guess he will spend one or two weeks to take a look what he is really got into. It is not time to trying to become a president. it is time to take a peak what the mess this really is.
GM, Ford, AIG on his plate right now. No time to take a breather. He can't feel good about it. Why should he even want to do anything right now? All he should do is to shut up and wait for his term.
Or maybe beef up his own security first.

Obama is a nice guy. I really like the direction he's gonna take this country, especially when it comes to Green energy. In fact, if I could make 1/5th what I make in right now I'd go glue a few solar panels together for a living. But I can't. I am not as good or fast as a robot.

MTGSPY said...

By the way, would you mind referring to Barry Soetoro or Imam Soetoro whenever we discuss the President elect please? It's kinda hard to relate back and forth in my small cranium who's who.

Imam Barry rolls off easy on the tongue

ARAK said...

if you want it sound muslim enough use Imam Bari.

I hope he will do what he said.
But I am scard shitless now.

I learned not to trust any politicians. Rahm Emanuel isn't my favorite guy.

MTGSPY said...

I hope he will do what he said.


I am counting on it [evilsmile]

Young Chuck moved to Texas and bought a Donkey from a farmer for $100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the Donkey the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.’

Chuck replied, ‘Well, then just give me my money back.’

The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.’

Chuck said, ‘Ok, then, just bring me the dead donkey.’

The farmer asked, ‘What ya gonna do with him?’

Chuck said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’

The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!’

Chuck said, ’sure I can - watch me - I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.’

A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, ‘What happened with that dead donkey?’

Chuck said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $ 2.00 a piece and made a profit of $898.’

The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’

Chuck said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.’

Chuck now works on Wall Street, selling Credit Default Swaps.

There is more -

The IRS decides to audit Chuck, and summons him to the IRS office.
The IRS auditor is not surprised when Chuck shows up with his
attorney. The auditor says, "Well, sir, you have an extravagant
lifestyle and no full-time employment, which you explain by saying
that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable."

"I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it," says Chuck. "How about a

The auditor thinks for a moment and said, "Okay. Go ahead."

Chuck says, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye."

The auditor thinks a moment and says, "No way! It's a bet."

Chuck removes his glass eye and bites it.

The auditor's jaw drops. Chuck says, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand
dollars that I can bite my other eye."

The auditor can tell Chuck isn't blind, so he takes the bet.

Chuck removes his dentures and bites his good eye. The stunned
auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with
Chuck's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

"Want to go double or nothing?" Chuck asks. "I'll bet you six
thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee
into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop
anywhere in between."

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully
and decides there's no way this guy can manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

Chuck stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he
strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on
other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the desk.

The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major
loss into a huge win.

But Chuck's attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.

"Are you okay?" the auditor asks.

"Not really," says the attorney. "This morning, when Chuck told me
he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty thousand dollars
that he could come in here and piss all over an IRS official's desk
and that you'd be happy about it.
