But....but.....the HFT guys bring liquidity to the market.
Too much liquidity. That stock just succumbed to alcohol poisoning, like a fraternity pledge on a bender.
SCORECARD OF TRUTH:
Actual Unemployment Rate = 22% (see John Williams SGS *Shadow Government Statistics* alternative unemployment rate reflecting methodology that includes "long-term discouraged workers" that the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 1994 under the Clinton Administration redefined away from those considered "unemployed." http://www.shadowstats.com)
Real Inflation Rate = 8.8% Annualized (with a head of steam baked into the cake to possibly accelerate this significantly by Q3)
Government Net Transfer Payments = 51% of U.S. Population
1 out of 7 Americans on SNAP (aka Food Stamps)
U.S. Deficit (Annual Revenues - Expenditures) = -1.9 Trillion
U.S. Debt = Officially stated as 15 Trillion as of 2011 (actual is 56 Trillion to 202 Trillion; reference David M. Walker & Laurence Kotlikoff) - U.S. Is Bankrupt
U.S. Government Spending as % Component of U.S. GDP at Present = Approx. 1.6% (so if GDP is stated as 3.2%, U.S. 'Organic' GDP is only rising at 1.6%)
Approximate % of GDP Growth that is Nominal & Attributable to Inflation = 1.1% (so that 'Organic' 1.6% Growth in GDP is closer to 0.5% - not enough to stop further job losses and close to the point whereby we could start contracting again very soon)
You're Doing A Heckuva' Job, Bernank! (crushing consumption and organic economic & job growth while ratcheting inflation higher, all in one fell swoop)
In times like these I remember, "Stocks trade like real money, until they don't". LMFAO
As one of you guys said, we need to start making decks of cards with Wall Streeters' faces on them.
I would fold evey hand just to not look at them. Of course that would increase my chances of winning as well with that deck...

Oh, you mean like those card decks they issue to troops in Iraq/Afghanistan that have enemy pictures on them. They call 'em HVT's --- High Value Targets.
already been done...
Good stats and links. I think the impending QE3 rules out -ve growth in the short term - that's why Bersnakey is doing it after all - to keep USS Titanic afloat until the SS Californian, PRC Carpathia or even IMF Samson pop along to pick up the load.
the HFT guys bring liquidity to the backside of your midsection.

HFT liquidity to the market is as Peter North's liquidity to girls faces.
You've been peeking at Bin Laden's porn stash again...
SEC on the case ?
GS just sent a reminder shot across SEC's bow. They've now been pulled off the case. Message: we own you, so don't mess with us!
Who needs nuclear weapons anymore anyways....
Looks like the SPX near the end of June
From minutes to seconds, I'd say that is progress.
Didn't happen. You're seeing things. (Get the Matrix police out here, NOW!!)
unless you have subsecond charting, this never happened, it's not shown on my charts anywhere.
Also, for fuck's sake tyler, having resolve stain fighter ads blast out my speaker at work is not helping my drive towards partner. if your going to autospam us with ads at least have them muted...
Sound Blasted, Bitchezzz!
+1, neither does S---bucks shooting out my nose from reading your posts.
It showed up on TOS on a 15" chart.

Benjamin Graham's "Mr. Market" is clearly off of his meds
Patience my fellow buzzards. There will be thousands of cigar butt stocks soon enough.
Looks like Uncle Gorilla is testing the "Flash Crash Simulator" on some obscure stocks.
Later, they will used it at the COMEX and NYMEX and AMEX to deliberately crash commodity prices and send "Anti-Dollar" and "Inflation Theme" macro funds into the poorhouse.
Hope so. I'd be able to default the Comex myself. That would be fun. :)
'Obscure stock'...OH you mean its not a retail assless jeans or $75 hand towel stock.
++ I guess some things will just never go out of style.
Goddamnit Sheep, I about choked on my bagel from that and shot coffee out of my nose unto my brand new friggin' LCD monitor you bastard!
Is uncle gorilla being a fuck up pretending he knows what he's doing?
Tyler, some of the ads on ZH now are the self-launching videos that include audio with the volume of course all the way up. Lose them or lose traffic. Choose.
Yea I just got one too.
use firefox with no-script extention, no commercials at all...
How fucking annoying is that
Another answer to your "problem:" http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts2.htm
Adblock plus with Firefox will fix that; you can use pre-defined filter lists or create your own.
Why wait for someone else to do something for you? Use Firefox with Ad Block Plus (ABP) - no ads.
I got one too, but as soon as I heard the audio and figured out what was happening, I simply closed the entire window (which means I didn't read the article or comments).
I'll seriously consider donating to this site, as I've been here for a while now and find it worthwhile to stay. But PLEEEZ ditch the audio ads!
You won't lose me as a reader, but you will (as Richmond said above) lose my traffic on those pages.
Give first, suggestions second. This site deserves much support.
Just click on some adds now and again.
Make it so that donators can turn off ads. That will likely bring in more revenue than the ads ever would.
Regardless of this, audio ads are about the most disgusting thing ever done in web advertizing... its even worse than layered popups that cover the entire window (which is disgusting too).... i doubt that tyler actually wants those ads (the advertizer just sneaked them in).... still, now that it is known, they should go away for everyone... no website admin who knowingly allows this stuff, deserves the ad income... and this is also what will happen: Either this type of ads go away, or the people make them go away themselves, or the people go away - none of those outcomes involve ad income, so there is no point in keeping such ads.
Get IE9, and install the TPL from https://easylist.adblockplus.org/en/
Progress is good.....right?
At least that's what my minders keeping telling me.
There is no point in increasing the speed, when you're driving in the wrong direction.
So much for "progress" which nowadays is just a fancy term for "change". See obama.... he certainly brought you "change", right?
How in the hell do you find these things?
