StockTwits: Jul. 05 at 10:02 PM
A special shout out tonight to all who join us for MacroTwits and especially those who share. Quite a bunch now congregating here!
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 10:01 PM
Heard about tent cities popping up in Sacramento, LA – different from existing homeless comm., in that the occupants are middle class $$
pdenlinger: Jul. 05 at 10:01 PM
I think the whole Chinese government will retire to CA. Think that running CN is too much trouble with 1.3B ppl $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
@alienone Good point on the pessimism. Should be tradable opp. somewhere in all of this doom and gloom. :) $$
alienone: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
@Brodieville – if you have no contingency plans – then yes – threshold to economic feasibility of relocating becomes problematic $$
cuccaa: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
$SPY Senario’s for playing the H & S on SPY, on a 60 min. time frame, , good luck!!
Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
@mp7124 very likely/possible, but the frenzy of negativity is relentless. I have no quibbles with the tone, things seem disintegrating $$
Twigins: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
CA still not willing to pay for what they want, if they can’t pay, they then need to decide what they can live without. Like a household $$
traderpsyches: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
$ES_F oops 884 1st – then 875. #mkt
mp7124: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
What would cause Mutual/Pension/Insurance/Hedge funds to all dump? A run on the dollar? $$
diver2anne: Jul. 05 at 10:00 PM
@nancefinance It also lacks WATER! $$
anthonybrown: Jul. 05 at 9:59 PM
@GregorMacdonald I think Bernanke prefers helicopters.. I’d expect Chinooks carrying pallets to Sacramento :) $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:59 PM
What I see coming in the US is alot of people trying to get to cities of 500K or less. That way, you can get stuff done. DC, Sacto: mess. $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:59 PM
@ryamada NREL just got 200 million new money, NIST hiring like mad, Commerce Dept, etc etc etc Boulder is THRIVING $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:59 PM
For those who missed it, WSJ piece on struct. reasons why CA has problems: “How California Became France” $$
nancefinance: Jul. 05 at 9:59 PM
@mp7124 @GregorMacdonald The delivery addresses a symptom, not the underlying problems. CA still too earthquake, wildfire prone. $$
mp7124: Jul. 05 at 9:58 PM
Perhaps StockTwits is realistic and are seeking likely outcomes. $$
alienone: Jul. 05 at 9:58 PM
@ some point within the scope of the economic game of life the buck has got to stop somewhere – else everyone IOU`s everyone else $$
Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 9:58 PM
@alienone but it takes a lot of resources & planning to move out of state, agree? $$
NoDoji: Jul. 05 at 9:58 PM
@magikmsu can’t find your “Crash scenario” post. could you explain? $ES_F
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:58 PM
Scale is now a major issue. If you are huge like California, you can’t get stuff done. In Boulder, you can. In Austin, you can. And so on $$
alienone: Jul. 05 at 9:57 PM
reasons to leave CA – IOU`s, taxation, Mexico/immigration issues, criminal activity, unemployment $$
Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 9:57 PM
just a comment, we on StockTwits seem resolutely pessimistic & sky is falling, it gets worse as the hour continues…. $$
mp7124: Jul. 05 at 9:57 PM
Would the FED be willing to send a C130 to every state in trouble? What do you get in exchange? $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:57 PM
China has NO NIMBY’s nor any BANANAS to interfere with WIND FARMS development in China 20GW of new wind by end of 2012 $$
Twigins: Jul. 05 at 9:57 PM
CA could not even agree on what could be cut, never mind what cuts to make … giving them money let’ the continue on the path = bad $$
magikmsu: Jul. 05 at 9:56 PM
Still looking to buy a gap down open on $ES_F…i hope this weakness continues until the morning.
mp7124: Jul. 05 at 9:56 PM
The Calif. numbers are relatively small. They can be patched short term. $$
pdenlinger: Jul. 05 at 9:55 PM
@mbusigin In today’s world, you reform yourself, or you get reformed from outside the system. Violently. $$
FinanceTrends: Jul. 05 at 9:55 PM
“In Krugman’s world, prosperity is created by spending…” $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:54 PM
@gregormacDonald ask yourself one simple question, would “”YOU”” move to Arnolds IOU world if U had a choice ?? alot will move out of CA $$
traderpsyches: Jul. 05 at 9:54 PM
$ES_F lookin at 875 – last swing low #mkt
diver2anne: Jul. 05 at 9:54 PM
@GregorMacdonald How will this happen? I do know that Smith, for one, is going broke–countless emails. $$
mike9958: Jul. 05 at 9:53 PM
good old Joe $$
Good_Trade: Jul. 05 at 9:53 PM
In case you don’t know one main problem is for anything budget or laws to pass the state assembly in CA you need a super majority GET IT $$
magikmsu: Jul. 05 at 9:53 PM
$ES_F just made a big move down, hopefully that “Crash Scenario” i mentioned last week does not come into play…now down 8 points
alienone: Jul. 05 at 9:52 PM
Joe Biden Acknowledges Administration ‘Misread’ The Economy – Freudian slip – what else have they misread economically $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:52 PM
Per @mikestiller ‘s question, I wonder that US university towns will increasingly catch money managment firms. Decentralization? $$
diver2anne: Jul. 05 at 9:52 PM
RT @pdenlinger:I think things will turn from mediocre to ugly soon because the systems in place are incapable of internal reform $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:52 PM
So for the next week: 4 debt auctions, continuing emer. mkt instability -> surprising strength in dollar? $$
Twigins: Jul. 05 at 9:52 PM
@pdenlinger I concur, no one has taken appropriate action yet and we are STILL not on the streets demanding it $$
mbusigin: Jul. 05 at 9:51 PM
@pdenlinger That’s a perfect articulation of what’s wrong. $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:51 PM
@ZipperTheory everyone knows I dont like Solars, too much cap ex 4 ROI 4 megawatts in solar, I like WIND and BIOMASS elec plants $$ $APWR
FinanceTrends: Jul. 05 at 9:51 PM

mp7124: Jul. 05 at 9:51 PM
If debt were cancelled who would smell if first? Bond market? $$
alienone: Jul. 05 at 9:51 PM
down trend on the data – short frenzy in the wings $$
pdenlinger: Jul. 05 at 9:51 PM
@mbusigin I think things will turn from mediocre to ugly soon because the systems in place are incapable of internal reform $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:50 PM
$$ only invest in profitable cash rich companies making ALOT of money in China 4 Green Energy $$ @GregorMacDonald there is never a rush
mbusigin: Jul. 05 at 9:50 PM
@diver2anne Same way as always: monetisation, which is why their appetite for it is shrinking. $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:49 PM
I follow Setser too to track UST market via foreign bid. Shift to short end has been huge amidst sold demand. @ryamada @ZipperTheory $$
Twigins: Jul. 05 at 9:49 PM
more & more prof’s are saying debt must be cancelled … lol, we’ll know we’ve hit bottom when that happens $$
mbusigin: Jul. 05 at 9:49 PM
@pdenlinger You sound like you’re tweeting out of the movie The Postman tonight. $$
diver2anne: Jul. 05 at 9:48 PM
@mbusigin How else does China get paid back its debt? $$
stockaddict: Jul. 05 at 9:48 PM
Samsung posts ~$2B in 2Q profits.. Korean mrkt not US. international friends can get a piece of the pie.. $$
mp7124: Jul. 05 at 9:48 PM
For the healing to begin, debt must be cancelled or converted. Will we see massive personal and corporate bankruptcys? $$
pdenlinger: Jul. 05 at 9:48 PM
Next scenario for US cities: Cities start issuing residency permits for basic services to keep out other city residents. Then city walls? $$
KiddJones: Jul. 05 at 9:48 PM
$GS someone stole their secret sauce
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:47 PM
Forex quiet tonight save for some JPY strength. SPX futures off 4.50 point. Gold flat (AUG futures). Oil very weak just above 65.00. $$
Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 9:47 PM
@mbusigin dunno, but they seem to love the Treasury debt, still. they mainly want commodity resources these days. $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:46 PM
@darnoc only buy the PROFITABLE China companies, why buy trash when you can have filet mignon with $APWR ?? $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:46 PM
@GregorMacdonald I haven’t checked Setser’s site lately, but I assume things haven’t changed in last couple weeks $$
diver2anne: Jul. 05 at 9:46 PM
@Brodieville as Pdenlinger has often said: the Chines are PATIENT, Americans not. $$
Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 9:46 PM
@GregorMacdonald article in WSJ a few wks ago about Seattle & Portland experiencing growing pains. still magnets, but jobs a problem. $$
mbusigin: Jul. 05 at 9:45 PM
@Brodieville Why would they want to? $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:45 PM
My road-map for US RE recovery was a final bottom 2010. Now I suspect many asking your same question: why buy? No urgency indeed @Twigins $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:45 PM
@GregorMacdonald Re: China and CA – I’d expect to see an increase in China purchases of Agencies/US corp bonds before CA warrants… $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:45 PM
Companies in Boulder HIRING , lots of new jobs and new folks in town for 2nd and 3rd interviews or being hired $$

Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 9:44 PM
@GregorMacdonald so when will China own us? hmmm… $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:44 PM
This is the key condition in Portland, yes. Smart Gov. Smart populace. And high unemployment among young people. @ericjackson $$

Brodieville: Jul. 05 at 9:43 PM
@snoopyjc all true, we do it cause we CAN. even in recession, some havbits die hard. i’ve given up $sbux but other things, no. $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:43 PM
If China bought CA IOU’s (warrants) it would be very close to a sovereign monetization/bailout of CA outside of DC. Symbolic impact huge. $$
wind4me: Jul. 05 at 9:43 PM
@ryamada Portland just landed Vestas World HQ for wind 4 USA, would NOT take an Arnold CA IOU…….me dont play those games $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:42 PM
I think most Gen. Ob. CA bonds held by private indiv. These high-worth indiv. may consider relocating. Somewhat diff from T-bonds. $$
Twigins: Jul. 05 at 9:41 PM
who would buy a house today, unsure of income, unsure of expenses, unsure to safe water supply – who’s gonna buy? $$
ericjackson: Jul. 05 at 9:41 PM
@GregorMacdonald portland may be smart but OR unemployment is brutal. must be good convo at local starbucks $$
GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:41 PM
My concern too. And here is my social take on cascading foreclosures: Somebody finally says “Make me move. We ain’t leaving. ” @mp7124 $$

pdenlinger: Jul. 05 at 9:40 PM
@GregorMacdonald So why can’t China buy the warrants and exercise them later? $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:40 PM
@GregorMacdonald Not sure about Portland, given OR ‘s high persistent unemployment. I’d add DC to the list; VA and MD pretty solvent. $$

GregorMacdonald: Jul. 05 at 9:39 PM
Fascinating and not unexpected that CA IOUs are getting scalpers/bidders. I think CA is printing warrants, essentially. @dvolatility $$
pdenlinger: Jul. 05 at 9:38 PM
My guess is that approx. 95% of global population has useless commodity skills $$

Yes it just seems to me that exodus from NY and CA is coming. Smart cities like Portland, Boulder-DEN, Austin to catch them? @ryamada $$
ryamada: Jul. 05 at 9:36 PM
Perhaps all of this means that a strengthening dollar over next few months not completely absurd, despite massive Treasury issuance. $$
