Today is a harmonic number day and the music of the markets is distinctly more like a Schoenberg 12 tone tune. Chaos. We go around the world today to visit a number of markets trying to deal with inflation. We examine how this is impacting gold markets in Asia. And the price of oil and gold continues to climb while the dollar continues to drop against the euro and even the yen. China is continuing to slam the doors shut on everyone's fingers as I fully expected. While Gross of PIMCO thinks we are playing 'Old Maid', he is really playing 'Hot Potato' with fellow investment banks anxious to pass along trashy pieces of paper that are losing value. And Fannie Mae may be the Old Maid but these guys want her to also be the sucker here. To sop up all the stupid mortgages they made during the bubble.
