I have three consoles running here.  WTF is going on at the markets right now.  Is it halted?  Numbers from all three subscription feeds are fucked up.

I think they just halted the markets.  Can't pull any quotes now.

I think it was just a data feed error/obfuscation.

it's always a good idea to have data feeds from at least 3 different providers, ideally each located on a different continent; i did notice a 5 seconds glitch on my US feed but my european and asian ones were completely unaffected

Something is going on.  Can't find anything though.  network problems again between point A and B maybe


TNA would have been a good play today with the big drop on open though.  Oh well.

Great day for TZA, though: Pushing +8% right now.  Strange, with oil falling on a stronger $; it doesn't appear that the correlations are holding.

Agreed, considering what TZA represents, the market is hardly a bastion of sanity anymore.

Weird, even Forex isn't updating.  Usually the morning open and the USD/CDN is jumping around like a six year old after drinking a redbull.


It's like everything is out of sync...if that makes sense.

The Fed will just double down on the POMO over the next few weeks. Remember that we're expecting the new schedule later today. Let's see if it's front loaded.

Exactly.  Technical, schmecnical.  Benny gots this.  We all need to go buy some C, BAC, AMP, AMZN, and AAPL.  This is a great Fucking Dip to Buy.

No, they're going to "exit" soon, remember?  Can't you get your story straight?

Remember, we have a strong dollar policy.  We give it lip service everytime we need to or think we can get away with it.

Maybe I should just close my eyes and randomly hit stock symbols and the "buy" and "sell" buttons. Or get the monkey suited up to play "Stock market shoots and ladders" like back in the 90's.

Why is the 55 so important, when it appears the same is true for the 50 DMA?

Because the double nickel was institutionalized back during the OPEC oil embargo and gas shortages of the 70's. This is why the young traders are ultimately gonna get monkey hammered. They don't know about CB radios and "breaker breaker one nine", critical info to have in today's market.

Looks like it hung up at 1299 for a while and recovered. Trading day is over now, but not too late to BTFD.

Don't hold anything longer than a couple of hours these days.  All my positions are closed as of yesterday at around 1:30.  Holding anything longer than a couple of hours is a good way to get killed trading.

They're buying up the whole country.  They have to go somewhere when they see the torches and pitchforks coming down the road.   New heli-pad installed on the roof of the Fed building to get them outta Dodge in a hurry.  Russia will welcome them as liberators, Cheney says so.

I can't get over this. Our TBTF bankers teaching a former communist country how to centrally plan the economy. We are through the looking glass... This is how deep the rabbit hole goes.
