Quants only trade where the vol is. Nobody has been trading equities for months (which means volume will get less and less as HFT strats become unpractical, especially if rebates are adjusted and that shuts the door for risk free parasitic HFT churning). Everyone is in FX and commodities.

Nobody has been trading equities for months? WHAT? According to RoboTrader thats all anyone is doing, piling into spandex and boutique coffee stocks...somethings wrong here.

Usually Wall Street Layoffs indicate revenue misses and the beginning of a resession. Or at least it has in the past. What do you think this time around? Revenue misses and  Resession? Perhaps the ISM numbers will tell us over the next few days.

I wouldn't count on the ISM's telling us anything other than what we are suppose to "know."

ISM numbers all collapsing already, what more do you want to see?

In the Australian financial press (Financial Review) this was described as being a result of expected M&A, IPOs and a general increase in banking business predicted post GFC (Global Financial Crisis) not materialising.

It certainly seems like PIMCO, although still a gorilla,  no longer influences the Treasury market like it once did a few short years ago and that PDs are that much more powerful in this regard.  For a Master of the Universe, Bill Gross gets saltier and more grumpy every month.

you know I am awful, but keep an eye out for the fake breakout, a but above the buy signal to sucker in the masses ad then a sell off. I can't predict, but it's a feeling I have.
