So what happens if you traded for a loss down 29.9%?

What happens if you short at 100 and then cover at 70, only to have your cover canceled. Are you still short? Or do both trades get cancelled. If the latter, then the seller at 100 is still long? What if he already spent the cash?

Who decides who eats the eventual loss? It sure as hell won't be the exchange.

That loss would be for Goldman Sachs. Can't have that now do we?

So those will be cancelled.

Only those who lost money besides GS are screwed.

They bust your buy at $70 and u r still short at $100.  What's fucked is the person who see the buy to cover  get filled and goes away for the day, stock goes back to $80+ and he finds out he's still short, if he placed orders using proceeds of the $70 cover and doesn't have margin buying power to cover he gets a margin call, better have add'l. cash

That's what I would think too, but have not been able to find a source or any information about it. With all these trade cancellations, it must have happened. Do you have a source?

An equally scary scenario is stop loss orders - you enter 10% below the market and get taken out at -29%.

I used to be a branch mgr and a large firm, this is what is done, trust me, I had many conversations with clients that were on the wrong side of a cancellation.  However the info will be on the website for the appropriate exchange, i.e. NYSE, NASDAQ, etc

This part has nothing to do with Bambi, it has to do with Goldman Shafts and the like.  Bambi sucks because he caved to the bankers as all the Good President Slaves Do. It is the US Banking Cartel mandate.

If you want to throw politics into it, it is more the fault that Republicans want the markets to go completly back to the old game.  For myself, I no longer care either way. We are Japan now.  I just want to know who controls the game.

Argentina is sounding a lot like the US. From the WSJ:

 

That would dovetail nicely with her domination of what was once an independent central bank. Since last year the bank has transferred more than $16 billion to her treasury in exchange for government bonds. Yet the government still generated a fiscal deficit of $1.3 billion in March, implying that no matter how much money it gets its hands on, it is never enough.

What is more, at the end of February the Argentine money supply was up 28.6% year over year. And in recent months independent analysts who put out inflation numbers that do not agree with the government estimate (now around 10%) have been fined."

8 shares were traded in the stock market today I think. The day that some unseen event come when everyone knows it is ballgame and the dash for cash begins this market is down 40% in a week. The moment the stock market dies this nation nears extinction.
70% of American work force must be govt jobs, state jobs and services shell passing. The man milking cows is yet to become king.
Everyone in America is about 8 months from waking up jobless for a decade..and they shall call it an unforseable cycle.

These are mostly ETFs, ill liquid notes, and the like.  There is a liquidity put being legislated into the markets by the exchanges and regulators that is dangerous.  If a large ill-liquidity event occurs, it's going to create more uncertainty than it avoids.

And they ask why is the volume so low... when are the retail traders gonna come back.

 

I am surprise that there are still morons around trading this market!! Be real!! The Fed is own by private bankers! Private bankers only mission in life is to extract maximum profit. Whatever decisions made by the Fed are theirs. See the picture? They will always trade ahead of you suckers. Your only hope is for a greater fool to come along so that you can unload onto him.

Are they just a bucket shop?

"the third-largest US securities exchange, capturing 10% US equities market share in just four years"

And they decided to screw their own clients?

Why?

Did someone have their hand in the cookie jar?

"In 2010, BATS continued its growth by launching two new platforms: BATS Options for US equity options and the BATS Y-Exchange (BYX), a second US equities exchange.

BATS … Making Markets Better."

Apparently not.

Randy Williams was named vice president, communications, for BATS in March 2008. He joined BATS in October 2006 as communications specialist.

Mr. Williams is responsible for much of BATS' interaction with external audiences, including journalists and analysts, and his work has led to coverage from Bloomberg, BusinessWeek, CNBC, Dow Jones Newswires, Forbes, Reuters, The Economist, The Financial Times, NEWSWEEK and The Wall Street Journal, among others. "

"and his work has led to coverage"

In the FT no less. And The Economist.

Will Randy be communication with the FT and Teh Economist?

That's what Joe says.

Who could not trust Joe?

A quick look at the 4 r's in the list:

RXI Range $55.88-$56.15 volume 9,954 AH: $59.09

RVP: $1.40-$1.78 12,903 $1.75

RPI: $1.91-$2.40 2,319 n/a

RIH: $14.72-$28.86 4,300 n/a

Oh the perils of trying to make a market with NO volume but lots of conditional orders and lots of HFT's scanning the spectrum for any weakness!

If this is the same thing, the WSJ reported on it tody, albeit 2 days later.  "NEW YORK—Nasdaq OMX Group is negotiating with top executives of major market-making firms to resolve whether the exchange should repay trading firms for losses incurred by a software glitch earlier this week, according to people familiar with the situation. Trading in more than 80 securities was halted early Monday after one of Nasdaq's algorithms fed incorrect quotes to market makers. On Wednesday, Nasdaq acknowledged the halts were "caused solely by a Nasdaq malfunction," which resulted in the release of "invalid and stale market data" in the first half hour of trading. "
