Re: Something big in the making?!

I am disappointed that this is going in no clear direction. I have my iPhone stocks apps loaded and my finger ready to invest all my savings in canned soup or CDS on Greek bonds. Please be straightforward and specific. There is no time to be Wasted.

So it IS true. When husband told me about this I thought it was the plot for the next James Bond movie!

Addind that to something big mysteriously happening in 2 weeks? I have to get me the telephone number of Holywood!

IF I had some credible piece of information which could result in financial benefit, you really think I would share it with you and everyone else?

Unless I have already invested in something and want to create a demand for it so I can sell it off at a higher price?!

Heard you are a Psychiatrist? Given your understanding of financial markets and human psychology, if I were you I would stay off investing and if I was NOT you, I would be concerned to get any kind of medical advise from you.

I heard you are a sheep shagger.

Is that pertinent to this discussion?

Argh, y'all are killin' me over here as there's bad news on every front, even a volcano ready to blow in Iceland and being taunted with something big in 48 hours is just an addition to the overall suspense.

Yes, cos you're lonely. But it doesn't matter, as you haven't.

DB... are we talking about smoking sheep? Isn't that illegal? The poor animals? Do you actuallly roll them on a carpet and set it on fire, or use the roasting lamb smoke?

Why? The German BND has a track record of complete failure. Not in the pig's bay scale that people really get hurt but in the "I make a complete idiot of myself and my country" way...

My personal favourite took place in the 90s: The BND wants to prove that there is a global market for nuclear weapon technology since the iron curtain came down and Russia was in a crisis. Fair enough.

Hiring some Columbian to buy weapon grade enriched Plutonium 239 and enough Lithium 6 for a hydrogene bomb is quite questionable. Putting him on a Lufthansa passenger plane with the stuff is outright idiotic - and having news reporter finding out about it... (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium-Affäre)

P.S: The CIA has it's senior analyst who managed to locate Bin Laden exposed - based on an official white house press photo... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_896529.html

Like I said, they are rumours and if I had some confirmation then I wouldnt be asking the intelligent EF members. (usual EF responses, as I initially thought)

Its either a major default, not just Greece or PIIS but could even be US or oil or commodity prices will take an unexpected turn, in favour of some Geneva based Hedge funds at the cost of other investors and interest holders.

Yes WE ALL KNOW.. something big is going to happen, for more than a decade ago, but point of my post is its within net 48 hours or week!

I would'nt buy into anything, maybe shares of Security companies or Armament and associated industries. Maybe short some commodities.



You can just short sell Switzerland, even if you dont make money, it will give you some pleasure I think
Half your information is right and i won't elaborate, expected time is last week in July / first week of August

Well, I have been somewhat constipated over the last couple of days, so something enormous is definitely in the making

Finally an interesting comment! rofl

I have a question pertaining to the Mayan calendar. How could they possibly foresee the end of the world....but completely failed to acknowledge their own demise.
Alternatively who cares what they forecast thousands of years ago; most of the good & the great today cannot even accurately forecast what will happen tomorrow.
