This is going to be huge, and my gut says Goldman Sachs, based on Assange’s comments inside.  This will not make Dr. Bernanke and Tim Geithner very happy, as they have worked tirelessly to cover-up Wall Street fraud since the Bear Stearns bailout.  And if you thought the Pentagon was pushing hard to shut down Wikileaks, wait until the Federal Reserve gets involved. 

It’s not inconceivable that the Fed itself could one day be a Wikileaks target, and so better to destroy the enemy now.

First WikiLeaks spilled the guts of government.  Next up: The private sector, starting with one major American bank.  In an exclusive interview, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Forbes that his whistleblower site will release tens of thousands of documents from a major U.S. financial firm in early 2011.  Assange said the documents could "take down a bank or two."

Assange mentioned Goldman Sachs by name in the interview, but did not confirm the Wall Street giant will be the target of the leak.  Assange wouldn’t say exactly what date, what bank, or what documents, but he compared the coming release to the emails that emerged in the Enron trial, a comprehensive look at a corporation’s bad behavior.

  • "We have one related to a bank coming up, that’s a megaleak. It’s not as big a scale as the Iraq material, but it’s either tens or hundreds of thousands of documents depending on how you define it."
  • "It will give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms, I presume."
  • "Yes, there will be some flagrant violations, unethical practices that will be revealed, but it will also be all the supporting decision-making structures and the internal executive ethos … and that’s tremendously valuable."
  • "You could call it the ecosystem of corruption,” Assange added. “But it’s also all the regular decision making that turns a blind eye to and supports unethical practices: the oversight that’s not done, the priorities of executives, how they think they’re fulfilling their own self-interest."

Assange also told the magazine that his group has material on many businesses and…

S&P Faces $2 Billion "Gamma Gravity" Trap At 3,650

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

With emini futures trading just shy of all time highs, and the cash S&P hitting record highs, the question is will momentum accelerate to the upside or will the infamous gamma gravity kick in? According to our friends at SpotGamma, along with the move higher in the S&P, gamma levels in the index have built to over $2bn notional (between both the SPX+SPY) "which typically indicates mean reverting market action in the context of upward – trending prices."

Additionally the climbing such "walls of gamma" also often leads to a reduction in volatility: according...

The Vaccine Rally Could Be Running Out Of Steam

The Vaccine Rally Is Fading Away

Despite today’s new all-time highs the late-day weakness among cyclicals could mean that the first leg of the vaccine rally could be running out of steam. While stocks started the session in a positive fashion, the leaders of the vaccine rally faded towards the end of the session in the face of the mostly positive news flow, and that warrants caution for bulls, at least from a short-term perspective....

Salesforce Confirms Deal To Buy Slack

Courtesy of ZeroHedge

It's official. After reportedly entering high-level, late-stage talks, Salesforce, one of the newest members of the Dow 30, has agreed to buy Slack, a former Silicon Valley "unicorn" that IPO'd last year.

Shares of the Slack have surged in after-hours trade on the news, as if the massive surge seen following the initial reports that the two companies were in talks wasn't enough.

Here are the juicy details: $27.7 billion in cash and stock, giving the corporate software giant a popular workplace-communications platform in one of the biggest technology deals...

Five Reasons Why Bitcoin is Going Up

Call it the “Respectability Rally”…

A few reasons for Bitcoin’s return to the record highs. It’s about $18,500 as of this writing, matching the previous highs from 2017’s original explosion.

Reason one: It’s going up because it’s going up. Don’t scoff, this is the reason most things in the markets happen and then the explanations are called for afterwards. I’m in financial television, I have literally watched this process occur in real-time. The more something moves in a given direction, the more peop...

Will Silver Price Reversal Bring Another Historic Decline?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Precious metals caught lightning in a bottle for the first 7 months of the year, with Gold notching new all-time highs and Silver making to multi-year highs in August. But both have reversed lower since peaking in August and investors should pay attention.

It might be nothing… or it might be something! Especially for Silver, which didn’t follow Gold’s lead in making all-time highs.

Today’s chart is a long-term “monthly” chart of Silver. As you can see, it was hi-yo Silver for the first 7 months ...

COVID-19 Forces More Than Half of Asset Management Firms to Accelerate Adoption of Digital Marketing Technology

By Jacob Wolinsky. Originally published at ValueWalk.

There is no doubt that the use of technology to support client engagement initiatives brings both opportunities and threats but this has been brought into sharp focus this year with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The crisis has brought to the fore the need for firms to enable flexibility in client engagement – the expectation that providers will communicate to clients on their terms, at their speed and frequency and on their preferred channels, is now a given. This is even more critical when clients are experiencing unparalleled anxiety from both market conditions and their own personal circumstances.

Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System Suggests Market Peak May Be Near

Courtesy of Technical Traders

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...

Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia – The Branch COVIDIANS Are Still Burning Down the House

Courtesy of Lee Adler, WallStreetExaminer 

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
