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.

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.

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.

EscapeKey's picture

They shouldn't cancel the trades. All of a sudden you'd see this issue go away real quick.

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.

King_of_simpletons's picture

Let's call this - flash blast.

hehehe

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.

Cpl Hicks's picture

Give it a try with heroin.

Afghanistan being the sexist country that it is it would be hard to find enough marketable heroines.

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.

TWORIVER's picture

No real surprise to see resitance tested on the daily chart. SPY likely to close below 103 on this fail.

Turd Ferguson's picture

It would be seriously fucking funny if equities reversed today. Serve the fuckers right.

TWORIVER's picture

Tough to say they will close in the red, but below 103 is no stretch.

papaswamp's picture

Andarko? 25% stake in the Macondo site? this is just too much today.

unwashedmass's picture

 

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.

1fortheroad's picture

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.

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!!

This would be like a hockey stick on the charts, right ?

oscar t. grouch's picture

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...
