Chinese Frauds Account For 80% Of Nasdaq Permanent Trading Halts

Tyler Durden's picture

In light of another fraud allegation against China Biotics which will likely soon join the Nasdaq trading halt page, we decided to take a quick look at the Nasdaq trading halts page. To our complete lack of surprise, Chinese fraud dominates with an iron fist: of 19 halted stocks (GFC has three classes of securities halted), 15 of the name are Chinese. Of these 15 Chinese names, none were on this list when we first warned of the imminent surge in reverse merger fraud back in November. Luckily, judging by the horrendous performance in recent Chinese IPOs, even with the criminal abdication of enforcement duty by the regulators, it appears that the gambling frenzy is over. Below we present the complete list of Nasdaq trading halts with Chinese names highlighted in red. No further commentary is necessary. And to all those who bought puts on these stocks, correctly predicting the names are nothing but mini ponzi schemes, please send your complaints to the SEC and the Nasdaq, which is more focused on raising HY debt to LBO any and every exchange still for sale, than actually monitoring what crap it floats.

Incidentally, the Zero Hedge short China basket just hit an all time low.

The heat from that paper bonfire just warms your heart, doesn't it?

this guy on his "header" spelled capital wrong and solutions wrong. Strike 1 and 2. I can see spelling them wrong in the body of the text but his header/sign the one he is supposed to pull off his website and just copy and paste? Come on man!

I'd cut Martin some slack, he probably outsourced it to Japan, as he has bigger things to worry about now, and still doesn't charge for his opinion.  I'm just glad he has access to something more than a pen & typewriter.

Zerohedge spent the best part of a year telling us to buy silver. How come silver hardly gets a mention on this site now that it has collapsed?

Tyler Durden's picture

Zerohedge advised to shift away from paper assets on March 18, 2009. What is the return since then?

We can help you:

Incidentally, total COMEX silver just dropped to its lowest silver holding ever, as another 250k ounces of silver got reclassified from Registered to Eligible, and a total of 444k ounces withdrawn. Must be all that aversion to holding actual silver.

'ZH saying to buy silver for over a year, now its 'collapsed'....anyone who bought silver a year ago is up over 200% at least? Numbnutz.

HelluvaEngineer's picture

Think it's getting plenty of coverage.  If you feel like you've been duped, then sell it all now.

Trillax's picture

Indeed.  Sell it to me if your convinced it's 'collapsing'. ;)

Collapsed?  It was under $30 last year.  Moreover, are we talking about paper or physical?  I need physical because we use it in our products.  Guess what, the price for physical has not changed.  What you are seeing in paper manipulation because of margin hikes.  Been there done that, market fundamental remain unchanged.

What you are witnessing is a collapse of non-stop, naked short selling of paper silver contracts. I took a peek at my stacks of silver coin just now, and from what I can see, none of those coins have collapsed.

Hopefully you are hedging against falls...

You know with protective cases for physical falls and bumps.

Life Alert™ can help you if you've fallen and can't get up! :>D

Are you actually reading all the articles?  There have been several that mention silver everyday.

Anyone have a source for info on settlement of options on Chinese reverse mergers that were halted? Puts sound good, I'm just curious as to what kind of execution investors actually got.

Nice drama on this issue.

However, I don't really think any major mutual fund even messes around with these stocks.

They are more inclined to be buying names like FXI and not taking specific stock risk.

OH no one even paid attention to any of these CNBC Wall St whore media darling Chinese IPO's they were all gushing torrents of jizz over when they came out, yea Im sure no one actually BOUGHT them! RainbowTrader as long as you have plenty of Windex and paper towels for those rear-view mirrors attached to your monitor, youre a true market guru!

"Torrents of Jizz" - sounds like a garage band from South Dakota...

The Chinese are just recycling the worthless green paper we send them

Tic tock's picture have to admire the irony... the world's major creditor-nation holds the record for the mos number of misleading account filings, in the most corrupt and dishonest company accounting regime in the world (my opinion)...that, or the SEC is just exercising US -I mean, Banker Foreign policy.

GS now down more than PSLV, LOVE IT. that 14.76 low was not breached today, might have seen the low on Sprotts fund for now.

SheepDog-One's picture

When the banksters start feeling the big pinch, thats when the bad times come. 

Altan311's picture

I'm getting worried for Blythe of the best raid she can mount in silver lasts 2 hours max. Watch, PSLV will close green for the day.

What's odd is that ZSL (ultra-short silver) just went negative on the day despite silver being down 2%.

There is no market, only manipulation now.
