SHORT SELLERS: Don't Read This!

The VIX spikes HUGE above $42 ... closes at $33ish


CAN YOU SAY ... "REVERSAL" ?  .... SHORT SELLING BANNED!!! 

The DOW loves 12,000! 

p.s.  The day after the BIGGEST one day Money Market redemption ... talk about selling at the bottom. 

p.s.s
The Baltic Dry Index, a measure of commodity-shipping rates, gained 2.1 percent yesterday in London, the most since Aug14. 



with some calls on EEM (the world is round!)

This government is trash. Banning short selling will only yield temporary relief. I will not be actively trading any more.

I will keep some gold stocks, agriculture and commodities, the rest goes into physical gold/silver and my business. I will not re-enter the market aggressively until after the economy collapses. I am quite sure that it will.
