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

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

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....

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

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".

'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.

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

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

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.
