Market Volume Explodes To Third Highest Since Flash Crash As FNSR Implodes For Second Time In A Row

Tyler Durden's picture


Stock volume, hiding for so long, finally made an appearance. The all dominating ES, which determines the stock price for virtually every other security in the stock market, surged to 3.7 million shares, the 3rd highest in 2011, with only the post-Fukushima nuclear explosion panic from March, when the Nikkei briefly went bidless, higher, and also the third highest since the Flash Crash days of last May. As reported earilier, now that all support lines have been breached, the next bounce can be expected at around 1,244 or the 200 DMA. Should that be taken out and it will be to make way for Operation Twist 2, we will promptly see the 1,150s once again. After that, we are straight down to Jackson Hole levels.

There was, however, one stock that was not determined by the ES, especially in After Hours trading: FNSR. Just like back in March when it tumbled by 15% on weak guidance, and the warning that "the Company will be impacted by...a slowdown in business in China overall" which prompted us to warn back in March that this is the "beginning of the end for the tech bubble" so the firm just defecated the bed once again, once again preannouncing that " the Company indicated that it currently expects revenues

to be in the range of $215 to $230 million; GAAP operating margin to be in

the range of approximately 4% to 6%; non-GAAP operating margin to be in

the range of 8% to 10% and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in the

range of approximately $0.17 to $0.21." This compares with street estimats of $253 million and EPS consensus of $0.37.

This is what happened once the stock was reopened at 4:30.


Bottom line: another Cramer momo stock up in flames.

Getting back to even isn't as easy as it looks.....BOOYAH.

From March 15, 2011:

Mad Money" host Jim Cramer may have sparked communications chip maker Finisar (NASDAQ: FNSR - News) to a gain of 4% when he mentioned the stock as a possible winner due to increased Japanese demand as part of an anticipated rebuilding effort. Cramer said coming increased demand for products that Finisar makes could cure sales and inventory concerns surrounding the company.

I'm still unsure whether this is all a pre-planned rout in order to give the excuse for QE whatever, (i.e. print more money) or whether they are losing control.  Given how much further oil fell than stocks, I have a hunch it's the former, but precious metals were pretty resilient, which is what I'd expect with the latter...

Volume is back, and he is pissed off...


If I'm correct, the VIX broke the downtrend made up of the three declining spikes? (I'm not next to a terminal right now)

Now, a spike + volume is good right?

So can we possibly have two strong selling days in a row? Is that allowed?

Futures going green say NO!

Look for more doctored gdp data tomorrow which will, of course, be revised downward at a later, and less volatile, date.

Almost every major stock index around the world is flat or down for the year, including most emerging markets.  Kinda has the feel of a trend, to me.

1 step forward, 2 steps backward.

The current market dance.

Pull the plug as QE2 fades.

Get the sheep participant players back onto the Dollar train.

Prop up the garbage US paper and therefore the fading empire, one more decade.

Doubtful but might just work.

What should have longs a bit nervous is that so far the decline has been far too quiet and orderly.  A VIX in the 30's might be required for a reversal.  That of course would mean a swift and major swoon for the indices.  Like -300 to -400 points, not this sub -200 manipulated bullshit.

That said, LDK Solar looking good with good RS.

What FNSR has to do with overall Market?

Market Cap just over 1.5B. What is the point?

Should everything crash just because some crappy

financial stock is down on heavy volume? They

all been down for quite sometime now.. But somewhat

stable anyways.. Don't search for 2008 event :)))

Ain't there..
