GoldmanSachs666 Message Board

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".[1] In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain

Goldman Sachs Surprises Analysts, But is GS a Sell?

Now I remind dear reader here that 9 times out of 10, analysts are either wrong, stupid, or just slightly off. So this is presented for entertainment purposes only - however I might be inclined to agree. Now that Goldman has managed to break $150, it's all downhill from here.

Goldman Sachs Shares May Be ‘Exhausted’: Technical Analysis

Investors should consider selling Goldman Sachs Group Inc. shares even after the bank posted record earnings, according to Bollinger Bands analysis.

Analysts who look at charts to predict moves say the shares may be poised to drop after breaking the higher of two so-called Bollinger Bands, lines plotted two standard deviations above and below the 20-day moving average.

Goldman Sachs climbed as much as 1.1 percent to $151.15 in New York trading after reporting earnings that beat analysts’ estimates as revenue from trading and stock underwriting reached all-time highs, breaching the upper Bollinger Band at $151.07. The New York-based bank last closed above the upper band on June 4, a move that preceded two straight weeks of losses. The stock is up 78 percent this year.

“This stock’s move up is exhausted,” said Luis Benguerel, a trader at Interbrokers Espanola in Barcelona who looks at technical indicators such as Bollinger Bands. “Not even today’s earnings may keep the shares at these technically high levels.”

Yeah, that 151.15 was disappointing for me: I had an order in to short at 151.22.

It still could happen Wednesday, though -- after blowout earnings boosted the mood in after-hours trading.

I think there is much more than 2nd grade analysis stock analysis that points to the same conclusion.

And I think you meant "trash"? :)
