we in for a World Crisis in a Few Weeks?
I received the following email from
a friend in the Word, Ron.
Note: I have been getting
information from many quarters that there is an impending disaster on the US,
within days. Further, in a short time we can expect that they will be
bombing Iran. I feel that we must be at much prayer in these
times. It isn't going to be long before our world undergoes the
realities of the changes that have already taken place since 9-11. KS
Interesting read. There is a
whole nomenclature in the world of stock markets. From the discussion,
other possibilities were raised, such as a large hedge fund trying to raise
some liquidity to stall off another crash, China trying to recoup its $10B
loss in the subprime
market, the Fed trying to
stabilize the market, and, yes, someone trying to make a killing off a
collapse of the stock market. It should be interesting to see which way
the wind blows.
IS EVERYONE PREPARED FOR THE WORST
YET? If the market does indeed collapse, we are all in for some rough
times. Makes you think the passage of PX will be anticlimatic.

what? Just as no one caught the criminal accomplices who short-sold
airlines just before 9-11-01, so the financiers have kept their privacy walls
despite all "anti-terrorism" legislation. Only
those who plan and profit from such terrorism would be in favor of keeping
such transactions untraceable. Only the Zionist merchant bankers
have the power to prevent that logical anti-terrorism regulatory measure from

HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHAT THESE 'INVESTORS' ARE EXPECTING?
sales are being referred to by market traders as "bin Laden
trades" because only an event on the scale of 9-11 could make these
short-sell options valuable.
65,000 contracts @ $750.00 for the SPX 700 calls for open
interest. That controls 6.5 million shares at $750 = $4.5 Billion. Not a
single trade. But quite a bit of $$ on a contract that is
away from current value. No one would buy that deep
"in the money"
calls. No reason to. So if they were sold looks like someone betting on
massive dislocation. Lots of very strange option activity that I haven't
The entity or individual offering these sales can only make money if the
market drops 30%-50% within the next four weeks. If the market does not
drop, the entity or individual involved stands to lose over $1 billion
just for engaging in these contracts!
Clearly, someone knows something big is going to happen BEFORE the options
expire on Sept. 21.
The following theories are being discussed widely within the stock and
options markets today regarding the enormous and very unusual activity
reported above and two stories below. Those theories are:
1) A massive terrorist attack is going to take place before Sept. 21 to
tank the markets, OR;
2) China, reeling over losing $10 Billion in bad loans to the sub-prime
mortgage collapse presently taking place, is going to dump US currency
and tank all of Capitalism with a Communist
Either scenario is bad and
the clock is ticking. The drop-dead date of
these contracts is September 21. Whatever is going to happen MUST take
place between now and then or the folks involved in these contracts will
lose over $1 billion for having engaged in this activity.
"$1.78 Billion Bet that Stock Markets will crash by third week in
Anonymous Stock Trader Sells 10K Contracts on EVERY S&P/Y
Shorts Stocks "in the money" effectively selling all his SPY
for cash up front without pressuring the market downward
This is an enormous and dangerous stock option activity. If it goes
right, the guy makes about $2 Billion. If he's wrong, his out of pocket
costs for buying these options will exceed $700 Million!!!
The entity who sold these contracts can only make money if the stock
market totally crashes by the third week in September.
Bear in mind that the last time anyone conducted such large and unusual
stock option trades (like this one) was in the weeks before the attacks
of September 11.
Back then, they bought huge numbers of PUTS on airline stocks in the
same airlines whose planes were involved in the September 11 attacks.
Despite knowing who made these trades, the Securities and Exchange
Commission NEVER revealed who made the unusual trades and no one was
ever publicly identified as being responsible for the trades which made
upwards of $50 million when the attacks happened.
The fact that this latest activity by a single entity gambles on a
complete collapse of the entire market by the third week in September,
seems to indicate someone knows something really huge is in the works
and they intend to profit almost $2 Billion within the next four weeks
from whatever happens! This is really worrisome."
