(ed. This, and the following new flash just below the dotted line, portend something big is in the works.
Let's remember just before 9/11 there was unusual options activity, which by the eay has never become public eventhough the SEC knows who placed them.
There were also some signs top government officials knew not to fly in commercial planes in early september, as well.
And, let's not forget the FEMA "drill" in NYC on 9/11 along with Cheney's role in scheduling and officiating airforce "drills" concerning the possible hijacking of planes, etc on 9/11.
Read these two news articles and make up your own mind.)
FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD OF GOVERNORS MEETING TO TAKE PLACE AT "C.O.G." FACILITY
IN JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING ON AUGUST 31 !
C.O.G. STANDS FOR "CONTINUITY OF GOVERNMENT" AND IS A SUPER-HIGH-SECURITY, UNDERGROUND MILITARY INSTALLATION DESIGNED AS A SANCTUARY FOR GOVERNMENT IF THE U.S. IS HIT WITH NUKES OR SUFFERS OTHER CATASTROPHIC DISASTER
Why would the Fed Board of Governors decide to meet in such a place unless they KNOW something terribly huge is going to happen to the United States next
month? This information on top of the stories below are unmistakable signals
to us that something terrible is going to happen and the big shots already
know it. . . . . .
Please spread the information on this web page along to every American so as
many as possible know in advance that any "disaster" or "terrorist attack" or
"economic collapse" was no suprise to our government. They clearly know
something is going to happen and they are apparently going to let it happen.
We may be forced to grab-up members of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors
BEFORE they get into the COG so they can be properly "dealt with" when
whatever happens, happens. The only reason they would head into the COG is to
hide from angry Americans.
My advice to the government and to the Bankers is simple: Come clean now. Tell
us the truth, the whole truth and nothng but the truth right now, BEFORE
disaster strikes so we can make rational decisions, make rational plans and
get through it as smoothly as possible - even if there's no way to avoid it.
HOWEVER, if you conceal what seems to be coming and you allow it to blind-side
us, there won't be any place for any of you to hide. We will hunt you down and
deal with you for concealing the truth and thus harming us worse.

$4.5b bet on another 9/11 within 4 weeks
Mystery trader bets market will crash by a third
$4.5 billion options bet on catastrophe within four weeks
Anybody have a clue as to what these 'investors' are expecting?
The two 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.
There are 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 700 points 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 seen before.
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 financial revolution. 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 September Anonymous Stock Trader Sells 10K Contracts on EVERY S&P/Y "Strike" Shorts Stocks "in the money" effectively selling all his SPY holdings 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."
