Not if you got your short in there.
Think of the potential for bribery after this becomes a "normal" occurrence. We have a standard news cycle: error reported, stock halted, error corrected, all is back to normal. People get used to it, it becomes no big deal.
Now, think of how easy it would be to transfer huge sums of money in this manner, if you also controlled the so-called regulatory bodies and so-called exchanges that were allegedly unwinding these "erroneous" trades.
I just threw up in my mouth a little.
I wish I could find a flaw in what you are suggesting.
The NEW NORMAL -- 100x MORE SURREAL than the OLD NORMAL.
Talk about Tim Geithner's forced squeeze wet dream.
Now that's fucking funny.
Oh yeah, baby.
Confucius say..."Timmy who go to bed with sex problem wake up with solution in hand"
Whadya mean? Timmay was named one of People Magazine's Most Beautiful Men in April 2009!!!
The fact that Timmay looks like Beavis to ordinary folks like us is meaningless -- this should be left up to trained folk with PHDs in fashion and beauty, such as the editors of peer-reviewed PEOPLE magazine.
I think those 200 shares were mine...I'M RICH!!!!
the trend is your friend...
Turn those OTHER MACHINES back off!!!@
If you liked it at $100,000, you'll love it at $250,000.
Buy, buy, buy! ..........Ops, sorry..............Bye, bye, bye!
Youre right, this is getting fucking ridiculous. They should track which ECN these bad trades are routed to, i wonder if its the same one that keeps giving bad prints.
They shouldn't cancel the trades. All of a sudden you'd see this issue go away real quick.
+1 bad hft trade.
EscapeKey for SEC commish!
HAHAHAHA Christ I love it!!
Better than the 'flash crash' even...let's see if we can get a 'souffle' market going and all you 'nimble' traders can retire fat & happy. Maybe I should be trading equities after all.
Let's call this - flash blast.
The woosh goose? The strike spike?
Where's a good ad man when you need one!
Hey. Let's do some heroine and trade stocks. We get it cheap from afghanistan operations.
Give it a try with heroin.
Afghanistan being the sexist country that it is it would be hard to find enough marketable heroines.
They just called him.. Fat Fingers
When you need that special job done, give him a call.
As reported earlier The Goldman Fat Finger Boy.
Let's see, just put my little market order in there for couple hundred shares of APC and look, I just bought stock. See that was easy. What the, MOMMMMMMMMM
i am loving this.....i mean, the manipulation in the gold shares is so blatant it is breathtaking.....
bids are bombarding the stocks....AND THEY ARE FALLING!!!!!!!!
AUY, UXG, even some of the big boys...RGLD, GG...
Interesting that the old ES ran right up to 1038 and hit the wall.
Let's just see what the afternoon holds. The PPT will have to work very hard to avoid a major reversal day.
No real surprise to see resitance tested on the daily chart. SPY likely to close below 103 on this fail.
It would be seriously fucking funny if equities reversed today. Serve the fuckers right.
Tough to say they will close in the red, but below 103 is no stretch.
check out IYR - (w.t.)fugly
Andarko? 25% stake in the Macondo site? this is just too much today.
i'd lik to draw the class' attention to AUY...earlier this morning, this stock fell as the bids outnumbered the asks five to one!!!
now that, .....that is Timmy's real wet dream.
MM do that all the time, its called a trap on the bid. They stack the bid, limit
the ask and the price keeps going down. Nothing new, been going on for years.
$100000 yes your eyes are not deceiving you.
C'mon, gather around,gather around folks and take the HYPNO-TEST........only 2 cent$......go ahead and take closer look and see your eyes are not deceiving you....gather around folks.
Now what did you see?
maybe they plugged the hole
+2 (subtle -- but very very funny)
now we are at 23 bid to 1 ask...HOW LOW CAN WE GO????
This is why I am now putting a crazy good-till-canceled order on my positions. Just waiting for a glitch to make me rich! -hey, I just created a new rallying cry for the modern day investor!!
Come on Lady Luck gltich and make me rich...oh and also don't let them bust my trades!
I'M RICH, GLITCH!!!
this is not an accident - the quants are hacking other quant programs and forcing competitors to fuck up.
AUY...bids now 30 to 1 ask as the stock falls another 2 cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
can i get a witness or what????
go Timmy go....you have the most super duper computers in the world...that is fo' sure...
This would be like a hockey stick on the charts, right ?
any fool could see that $100,000.25 was huge long-term resistance. i still think my $100,000.10 offer has a chance.
That really made me laugh...
