Investors 411 begins it POSITION section with the same statement it had in 2009 – The problem in the financial sector is far far far far far bigger than first imagined. Mea Culpa – I was WRONG!

Fed Chair Ben Bernanke

The 2008 financial shadow bank crisis was far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far farfar far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far far worse than expected.

Bernie Sanders (D – Senator) & Ron Paul (R Congressmen) manage to put into the financial reform bill a section that called for a more transparent Fed. Well some of those transparencies have been reveled. Here Bernie Sanders editorial. Jaw Dropper At Federal Reserve

We all know about the $700 billion in TARP funds, almost all of which has been paid back That was chump change. Here’s some Secret “Jaw Droppers – Some of the near zero % interest loans with no strings attached the “Fed made to every major financial institution in the country.”

  • $600 billion to Goldman Sachs
  • $2 trillion to Morgan Stanley
  • $1.8 trillion to Citigroup
  • $1 trillion to Bear Sterns
  • $1.5 trillion to Merrill Lynch

But wait there’s more. Not only were big banks given loans, but the big companies were lavished massive near zero % loans too.

  • General Electric
  • Verizon
  • McDonalds
  • Caterpillar
  • Harley Davidson
  • Toyota
  • Verizon

Still more bailout dollars went to  - Foreign Banks

  • $290 billion to Deutsche Bank
  • $287 billion to Credit Suisse

Imagine getting $ 2 trillion for nothing and earning a ultra conservative  3% interest for a couple years – That’s $120 billion in your back pocket with no strings attached.. Life is good, bonuses big if your part of  big business oligarchy throughout the world. But How’s life going for the Average working American?

Imagine if, as a condition for those trillions, some money went to the taxpayer or working homeowners whose mortgage were foreclosed. If many of them stayed in their houses, property values for everyone would be far higher than they are now.

Imagine if some of that money went to reduce the cost of your mortgage as a condition for the loan.

Imagine the phenomenal profits bankers make off credit cards and all types of loans transactions and all the tinme they’re getting )% loans.

Imagine how catastrophically far in over leveraged debt our unfixed casino capitalist system was and is.

Yours truly is totally shell shocked by these revelation that were posted this weekend in the Huffington Post. Right now my brian is totally frozen by the size and scope of what happened - (the Fed even massively and secretly bailed out foreign companies and banks – yet dare extend unemployment for working Americans and you get toasted)

Bottom Line – This story will NOT reach major News outlets in any significant fashion – Far too damaging for those elite members of the  oligarchy that hide in the shadows and run the USA.

Here’s Senator Bernie Sanders on the War Against the collapsing working class by many billionaires (the oligarchy) in our country.  Many thanks to HG for sending in the Video. Too bad it isn’t a right winger making these accusations because it would be promoted by FOX and Headlines across the USA.

Technicals, Fundamentals & Analysis

Investors411 record – 5 years of beating benchmark S&P 500

Sorry, I have limited time this AM and have yet to really comprehend what has been revealed as the size and scope of the 2008 bailout.

100% stand by Fridays piece “The Fix Is In.”

Paul R has come up with a chart that shows the dates the The Fed will Print and Dump money into the market this week. Tuesday and Thursday are the biggest days and those are the days stocks should do better on those days. I expect the rally to continue because its being manipulated by the Fed, Treasury, Shadow Banks & HFT’s.

The working class is in shambles. However, from the Obama administration to the Federal Reserve system its important to keep investors feeling wealthy so they buy over the holiday season and beyond. Several other investment blogs have all come to this conclusion including HGSI (see comments section)

  • The benchmark S& P right at breakout to yearly high levels.
  • The MO is at +14.59 so there is still room to move higher before becoming oversold

Economically, the working class in America can be devastated and American stocks increase in valuation because millions of new middle class buyers are created in emerging markets each week.

Positions

The  Positions Section link to latest & former buys and sells  - These are positions I actually own

(I do manage 6 accounts that have other positions).

Current ETF Positions. These are, hopefully,  longer term positions

  • EEM - (Emerging Markets ETF)
  • UWM – (2x small cap stocks ETF)
  • UCO – (2X oil ETF)
  • UWM – small cap stocks – bought more Friday at 38.75 (see comments section for announcements on buying)

Still view any dip as a buying opportunity because of the Fed’s market manipulations. When the MO gets closer to overbought I’ll stop buying.

Longer Term Outlook - CAUTIOUSLY BULLISH

AS ALWAYS, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH BEFORE INVESTING!
