Goldman FX Desk Back To Its Old Value-Destructive Ways After Stop Out In Latest FX Reco In Just Two Weeks

Tyler Durden's picture


It is good to see that Thomas Stolper has not lost his value destroying touch. In just the latest iteration of the company's FX team costing clients oodles of money (and making lots of money for its prop traders), we remind readers that on June 19, a full two weeks ago, Goldman advised clients to "Go long AUD/JPY for a target of 90 with a stop at 84." Our jaded Goldman translator kicked in and provided the following interpretation of Stolper's words: "As of tonight Goldman is advising clients that its prop desk has a lot of AUDJPY to sell up until 90, and will buy everything below 84, in other words Thomas Stolper says to go tactically long the AUDJPY until 90, with an 84 stop. Of course, this makes all the sense in the world if China is slowing down." Well, it seems that Goldman is now done offloading it AUDJPY exposure. As for any remaining Goldman clients who bought into the recommendation: Sorry. As of yesterday, AUDJPY traded below 84 on at least two occasions, droppoing as low as sub 83.10, thereby stopping everyone out.

Goldman reminds me of a kid i knew in high school.

He would sneak money out of your wallet, and raid your refrigerator when you werent looking. All while pretending to be your friend.

 He was a hell of a shop lifter too; right in front of the checker, stuffing lighters and cigarettes and beef jerky in his pants with the precision and 'lack of hesitancy' of a skilled thief.

But unlike Goldman's "clients" (host organisms may be more apropos), you didn't keep inviting the dipshit back into your home.

I would really like to get to know somebody, who trades according to GS advice. This species is obviously capable of reading and doing trading operations with less brains than a protozoon... a scientific sensation.

blindly, or via application of game theory?

They still are the biggest trader in the Street. So what the salesperson tells the client is: "We are seeing a lot of trading action. If you don't give me 2 million in revenues, I will give you zero color. So what's it going to be?" Very hard for a client to say no to this.

I'll do what Goldman's prop desk does before I would listen to their client advisement group.

GS should be shut down right away. Nothing but a crack house for unsuspecting traders.

Close but no cigar, they should really consider positioning updates, its very unprofessional to let those kind of gains turn into losers. Maybe they got bigger fish to fry.

If Stolper "owned a funeral parlor no-one would die!"

GS and their retard analysts can go fuck themselves, no self-respecting trader would listen to these idiots.
