Midday Market Commentary For 07-19-2013
The averages moved off their morning lows like it usually does, but remains in a narrow band of trading on low volume. $VIX has dropped to 13.14 and is probably meaningless in the overall picture today.
By noon the averages had settled into a sideways movement and not apparent direction as we prepare to close out the week.
The worries investors have is not totally unwarranted as pointed out in the following article.
Last year, Senator Schumer (Democrat, N.Y.) famously told Fed chairman Ben Bernanke "You are the only game in town."
Really, Senator? What about the real economy?
Bernanke and the Fed's machinations are indeed the only game in town for the parasitic financiers, but unnoticed by the Senator, America's real economy is innovating away from the dead hand of the Fed and its toxic spew of free money to the predatory class.
There's actually three games in town: the financier game the Fed is playing that will end in collapse, the Federal government's borrow-and-blow trillions of dollars game that will also end badly
. . . and the real economy, where millions of people don't give a rat's rear-end about Bernanke's latest attempt to placate the financial Monster Id he has created.
