HFT Packet Flinging Accelerating On The NYSE

Tyler Durden's picture

If the green line passes 200 for any extended period of time, we just may have conditions that are very to quite very reminiscent of the first flash crash. We will warn readers if we see any persistent quote stuffing/churning activity on the NYSE, whose poor Liquidity Replenishment Points just may not be able to take it.

They have been "quote stuffing" KKD non-stop during this correction.

$5 to $10 in 2 months with no pullbacks or selloffs allowed.

KKD? LOL, whatever you do dont look at the chart, down from what around $60? But youre all over the $5-$10 run....yea whatever Robo the cherry picker.

SheepDog...what are you getting on Robo for? Haven't you realized by now he is an arbitrage player? Successful too! Ok, sarc off now. Back to your reguarly scheduled meltup/down.

not that I understand, but the drop today didn.t go to the good buy point in the speed line. each time this hass happened we have had an afternoon sell off and opened much lower on thursday

I dare u guys go ahead and impress the hell out of me. Did anybody hear Citi get hacked for $2.5 mil the other day?

thank you.  i will enter my flash crash orders now.  random stocks at a 60% discount from current prices.  never know when you can get an AAPL for $140....



buzzsaw99's picture

Only JPM can buy during a flash crash. All other trades will be busted.

Mercury's picture

Sorry, but a round trip to $140 and back will almost certainly be busted after the fact when the SEC waves it's arms and declares a "do-over".

SheepDog-One's picture

'60% discount' from present bubble heights? I dont believe many of these paper stawks have any business being priced even 50% lower from here, its all a pumped up joke but hey buy whatever you want.

earlthepearl's picture

You need to set limit price 29% below current to catch it and to not get flagged for a do over

SheepDog-One's picture

Yep 29% is the key, more than that and the Maniacal Monetizers declare non trade.

SmoothCoolSmoke's picture

Does the 29% apply to a put you sell into the crash?

trentusa's picture

U R A FCKNG GENIUS GD THIS WEBSITE I ALREADY LIQUIDATED EVERYTHING & bought gold wait hold on never mind i got an account Random order @ 60%. OK SORRY SHOUTING I'M LOCKED & LOADED on Trademonster. Any particular stocks or indexes?

What ever happened to the prohibition against painting the tape?

Painting the B/O is at least within the spirit of that reg IMHO.

Sherlock Durden following this phenom has been pretty damn awesome. 

ZH post from last night about the forensic signature on Nanex might just go down as a recorded "pre-crime" event if this actually unfolds.
