Media Blackout of stock market crashing (500 points in 3 days)

Reading the headline stories on the MSM outlets, one would not know about the fall in the stock market.

Cnn:
Economy adds 209,000 jobs
Poll: More people say Economy "good"

Fox:
Consumer sentiment hits lowest level since March

ABC:
Unemployment rate creeps up - but with silver lining

NBC news
No economic news

Wall Street Journal:
Stock market steady (as market dips another 30 points 10 minutes into trading)

Nothing to see here people, move along, the recovery is going fine!

Stocks are not tied to the economy right now. I don't see a crash without a cataclysm. There is just too much money floating out there looking for a profit. The current fall is just profit-taking, when the market falls far enough buyers will return again, the faith is there. Stocks have little to do with corporate earnings. Most daily movements are thousands of pros moving billions to try to make a quick buck. And as a CFP in my company says, "where else is money going to flow? Temporarily to other sources yes, but always back to stocks."

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

Market down again Tuesday Afternoon

Could it be. Some already know upsets in states primaries? Or currencies? Juan $ Petro

Yawn

Wake me up when we are at DOW 10,000 again, then I will start to be an interested buyer.

Do you think even 10,000 is fair value

Stocks are higher not an increase in sales but because of sovereign fund buying and companies buying back their own shares at a record pace.
Indeed S&P companies themselves are the biggest purchasers of shares.

If the market crashes the economy will be even weaker with people becoming "poor" and having less money to spend.

Think the fed will rush to the rescue?

Not much of a crash and it

Not much of a crash and it hasnt been blacked out either. There was actually a short segment on CNN about market gains being whiped out.(someone stuck it on at work during lunch)
To be fair, it wasnt about the last couple days, but it was only a week or two ago.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

A slow train wreck...

The numbers mean NOTHING and never have. Especially, since QE Infinity.

We should all care.

It's kinda like the first step of AA, you have to admit that there is a problem, before you start to fix it. The inflated Stock market perpetuates the myth that the country is doing fine economically. It isn't until it crashes that the masses will realize the truth.

In order to move forward, there needs to be an awakening, Pain (even financial) can provide that catalyst.

As Ron Paul said 3 years ago...

They (the Federal Reserve) could ride this out 10-15 more years.

If that's the case, beware the 4k-6k drop in the stock market as the panic will only be artificial and seek to be a distraction from something looming larger.

Beware the Ebola panic. The jury is still out on the Ebola panic as it could be REAL (it would be just like those BASTARDS to do that) and it COULD break loose and kill tens of millions (except the globalists who have the antidote).

Or, it too, could seek to be a distraction from something looming larger.

Looming larger?

Marshal Law. The problem? You can't sustain Marshal Law in this country without killing 100 million of us (one way or the other) and keeping the rest in the "dark".

Think about it. This seems so unreal.

While stocks crash, gold has been neutral over the last 2 days.

At $1,296, be happy about that.

I'd be very happy to see gold shoot past $1500/oz!

But...

Believe me, I am not bullish long-term on U.S. stocks. However, two days of a down market is not a big deal. As the saying goes, "One day does not a market make."

The fact is that every single opportunity like this one has led to the "buy the dip" strategy. This very well could be the beginning of a large correction. Either way I do not get my financial advice from the mainstream financial media cheerleaders.

I am seeking to learn the way things ACTUALLY are, not the way someone tells me they are

This means nothing

... the stock market is nothing more then a fancy game of roulette
