The markets are finally beginning to realize that the debt ceiling debacle, economic contraction in the US, housing bubble 2.0 bursting, China slowdown, Japan stagflation and European banking crisis are not good for stocks. With that in mind, the S&P 500 has briefly taken out the trendline that has supported it since QE 4 was announced. Remember, the Fed is printing $2 billion per day and funneling it into the system. So if the markets begin to break down NOW, the only thing the Fed can do is print more money. However, this combined with the debt ceiling debacle could make a REAL mess. Yesterday the US issued a 4-week Treasury bill that came darn close to outright failure. With investors beginning to question whether the US might indeed have a debt crisis on its hands, investors are beginning to shun some US Treasuries and T-Bills for others based on priority of payments. Remember, every single Treasury and T-bill out there is utilized as collateral for millions of Dollars worth of trades. So if the big financial institutions begin to refuse to accept some US debt as collateral based on the perceived risk of a deb ceiling debacle there could quickly be capital call in the market similar to what happened when Lehman failed. This is not to say that the US will default on its debt. Rather this is to say that the mess the Government created is affecting things behind the scenes in the financial system. And this is where the next crisis could emerg. With that in mind, investors should be prepping now for a potential run of systemic risk.

There really is no stopping Audi right now. Although there has been some bumps in the road for a few markets worldwide, overall the company remains strong. One country that stands in the sales chart below is China, recording a commanding 28.2% increase in sales from last year. That's largely due to sales of the Q3, Q5, and A4L. Through the end of the third quarter, 2013 already ranked as the third best year of total Audi sales in the U.S. market. With all the marketing of diesel models in the U.S., I believe that sales will only continue to grow.

Comedian Hannibal Buress just keeps getting busier and busier. This year, he returns as co-host on Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show (which just started airing its second season), while voice acting on China, IL and going on tour with Funny or Die's recent Dave Chappelle/Flight of the Conchords-fronted Oddball Fest and The Eric Andre Show Live next month. Next year will see the debut of Comedy Central's Broad City (on which he has a big recurring role), his new Comedy Central hour special, and FXX's Chozen, another animated series he's lending his unique voice too. On top of all that, he's creating and starring in his own Comedy Central pilot. I recently had the chance to chat with Hannibal Buress about the new season of Eric Andre Show, his role on Broad City, and why he likes to goof off and make things weird whenever he does a local morning show. Read the rest at Splitsider. The post Talking to Hannibal Buress appeared first on The Awl.
