I think it would be hilarious if they let the buys stand. LOL
Here HFT.. enjoy your Adobe stock you bought for 800K a share.
The algo must've had a misplaced ">" symbol in there somewhere. Dang logic inversion.
It was me. I was at their web site downloading adobe to update my web porn viewing browser (to be current with SEC content) when it went crazy and triggered Waddle & Reed to sell 3.5 e-minis of the state of Sub Conscious which caused the sudden spike.
"U.S. households have $70 trillion in assets," Sumerlin explained during a live interview. "And the Fed essentially needs to buy enough Treasurys and mortgages that you can get a bid on all those other assets. And when you have leakage in the international system it takes a pretty big amount to be successful. To me, it starts to get interesting at six to seven trillion dollars."
The Fed could outbid Microsoft for Adobe too.
Looks like I didn't just press "any" key...
So do they set the DK line at 10% above the average price in the hour before? Or because people "made" money, is everything AOK?
BTW Tyler it's "Flash Dash". Feel free to use it royalty free. :>)
Haha, "Flash Dash". Brilliant.
its scary how you read my mind. :)
Don't forget the flash crash that never recovered.....
UNG and GAZ
ETFs are for losers.
ADBE (Adobe Systems) trading up 9% on chatter the MSFT might take over ADBE
Nice short here.
Since when does Apple control the mobile phone market? They aren't even number 1.
Here is an intraday chart of dollar vs "everything that moves on earth". The STOOPID market in pictures. If your IQ exceeds 25, please exit the market
"I am an algo program, and I invented Windows7"
"And unlike Apple, I promote Adobe Flash."
Oh Lord! The Brazilians intervened in dollars alright, but not dollars for rial.
So let me get this straight... Each Adobe share was worth a Brazilian for like 8 seconds???
Why edit out the week at $35? Because it makes the bullish chart look not so bullish.
As Suzy asked Ms. Smyth: "how do you make it last eight seconds?"
Looks like more insider trading, except with the TurboBoost Profit-o-maximus robotrader option enabled. Don't these guys ever give it a rest?
Yet another Waddell Event
Do not forget to include POZN on "The ZH Complete List of Flash Crashes"--took place just a few days before the market flash crash. POZN was the practice run...
Given how often Adobe flash has crashed my browser .... no one deserves it more
Microsoft hosts Adobe meeting? Misery loves company.
In the old days it would have gone up 30%.
MSFT + ADBE = a virus that eats itself
Those involved in the meeting, from its logistical set up to the discussion that took place between the two companies, were instructed to stay very quiet about the two companies holding council.
Right, stay very quiet. Thats a good thought. Which genius thought of that one?
We'ol huntin' Wabbiths!
You think that's bad, that's nothing. I got a real nasty flash rash after I had sex with Bernanke's mother.
Whoops! Alaska Air (ALK) -- $49.2 to $44.8 in a nanosecond. Albeit news.
Meh, just some minor turbulence.
Possible microsoft acquisition.
ADBE down 15 percent in last 3 weeks
Possible Waddle Event
This is getting nuts!
Uncertified programmers writing code without checking for any typos compiling crap administered by recent quant school grads saying lets try this and see what happens.
All algorithms should be registered with the SEC.
Just like all doctors and architects and engineers and lawyers are registered, so should all who write code and plug into the mainframe at any exchange.
The code can be kept proprietary but it should be registered like any other instrument being trader or in this case doing the trade.
Code and their writers should be registered and copies of the code presented to the SEC for a determination of eligibility.
The CFO of the trading company should sign off on it everyday to say he is responsible for any damages incurred to any traders due to their software malfunction.
All algorithms should be registered with the SEC.
Why, so Goldman can front run them all?
The FlashSmash(TM) algo is my IP, you must pay me royalties to use it. The FlashSmash(TM) algo in collaboration with the FlashCrash(TM), also part of my IP portfolio, can cause great fun in the market for you and your fellow tradercriminals!
It is that bad. I'm on LinkedIn and because I'm a perl hack (self taught), because I know a little bit about data mining, because I have rudimentary knowledge of Java and because I list financial as a hobby, I have been approached by recruiters looking to fill positions in companies developing HFTs. I would love to do it as a research project but know that I do not have the programming skills to make it production ready. It does seem to be a bit of the wild west in HFT these days.
Do it, then just backdoor their settlements to funnel fractions of the trade to your own personal swiss bank account. A million pennies equals $10,000 - spread it around some of the more hyper-trading methods or up your take. Sounds like financial justice to me.
Wait. Isn't that Office Space? And Superman 3?
It'll be the Office Space sequel: Lumbergh's Billions
