MUST HEAR: Panic And Loathing From The S&P 500 Pits

Tyler Durden's picture





 

"Guys this is probably the craziest I have seen it down here ever." Here it is, memorialized for the generations and away from the now openly ridiculous disinformation propaganda of the mainstream media, just what a full market meltdown panic sounds like: straight from the epicenter, the S&P 500 pits. Luckily open ouctry still exists, if at least for shock value. Click here for a first hand account of the most shocking 15 minutes in recent market history. Fat finger my ass.

Yup. Which means Uncle Sam has an "agency problem." Unlike the Japanese, whose price-keeping operation was faithfully executed by its broker/banker sock-puppets, the Treasury's primary dealers have "gone rogue" on their masters. Bad, bad, bad. My solution: make the Marine Corps a PD. "Marines follow orders, or people die." Semper fi, baby -- you better believe it.

Look, we're all adults here. It's fun to snark about DOW 36,000, but the reality is that the only possible way out of the ponzi trap is to keep it going. For that to happen, it's critical for the public sector to increasingly assume responsibility for credit demand, even if it has to take over 100% of the market.

And guess what? The Keynesiens who got us into this mess even have a theoretical justification. No, not for the underlying credit-money system itself, but intellectual support for government's resistance to private sector de-leveraging: Functional Finance.

You see, in their world, debts are assets & interest is income. Since government controls currency, there's no limit to how many "assets" they can create by incurring debt. Pretty sweet rationale, no?

So yes, look for DOW 36,000. Also gold $36,000 and so on down the line for anything priced in $USD.

"the only possible way out of the ponzi trap is to keep it going."

I must differ. If you believe the above sentence, then you are really saying is that we need to keep drafting more suckers into the game so that you may cash yourself out ahead.

Or, worse, you're one of those traders who prefers a "double up and throw up" methadology when you find yourself in a bad trade. Either way, it ends up in tears.

I don't think there are any more suckers around, to tap.  But, your brief holds up mathematically, and on paper, so long as supply remains.  However, at some point, it ends.  I think the end is near, because someone or something will simply "pull the plug".  Quick, easy, awesome to watch.  But sure as hell better than the incremental drowning we have now.

If the DOW does make it to 36,000, I think that volatility will be nearly unendurable....risk-on, risk-off inter and intra-day swings of biblical proportions.  As the game grinds on (assuming there is liquidity), there will be tens-hundreds-thousands-millions of broken pieces of the ponzi machine scattered over thousands of square miles.

You can hear the absolute incredulity in his voice as this plays off. Particularly at the beginning, when you hear him announcing the incoming wave of paper for sale. "Here they come to sell them again."

"We made it within a handle of limit offer here guys" @ 4:50 sounds veryinteresting. So the intense pressure petered off just before limit down? Then there was one final wave that took it to what seemed limit down (69 @ 5:50) before it started back up.

Then just as crazy, it ramps up with just bids, no offers (6:28) "no offers in the pit here" followed by the exclamation "Tell them we made it down to 1060" @ 7:08 and then "86 even bid and 95 even offer, we're 10 handles wide" @ 7:19 which is just insane. The rising pressure was more intense then the selling.

Fat finger my ass. This was a panic and I would suggest it was engineered.

That may be what happened in the pits , but there was definitely an aglo gone wild that caused that large basket of stocks to absolutely crater over the one to 2 minutes.   Now that all those trades are being cancelled you can be sure that it was to save a certain firm from possibly bankruptcy due to the error.  You can also bet it was one of the big boy firms such as GS, JPM, Blackrock, or C that was the big loser , and therefore that put heavy pressure on exchange officials to get those cancels.

The speed at which the stock market operates nowadays has turned it into a scam/casino. The purpose of the market is to raise capital for business ventures; this doesn't need to occur at high speed. We might be better off if all transactions were forced to take one year minimum to complete. Such rules might force people to become investors again.

I was curious about that to.  I think he's talking about the circuit breakers on the Dow which would have gone off after 10% down.

Yea he was talking about limit down prices in dow and ES, a little after he mentions 'we still have 60 handles of room'. Pandemonium wouldn't have ensude if the market hit limit down...that's what it's there for - everything would have calmed down and it would have been back to 'normal'. If you listen to the clip you can hear the big buyers coming in near the limit price.

I find it fascinating that no matter how good the computers are, during a storm with an angine out, the flying public demands a human pilot at the controls. Because there is no way of knowing when this will happen, the human pilot is in the cockpit at all times. Yet there is nothing wrong with taking the humans out of the loop when it comes to trading $Billions (that's B, not M) of dollars of stock in seconds? 

When I studied for my Series 6 twenty five years ago, the book repeatedly told me that the human market makers were there to act with reason and forethought to prevent panics from getting out of hand and to make the right and legally binding choice between making a buck and making a liquid market.

Looks like the almighty dollar displaced reason and forethought. And the humans.

The fucked up thing I was long the May 120 SPY puts going into yesterday.  When Dow was off about 900 I tried to sell and 1) IB wasnt taking orders and 2) the bid on the options was 6 and the offer was 12.  Whoever was making a market in those was RAPING anyone not focused and using market orders.  How does the CBOE allow that kind of spread?  So they would let you buy puts at 12 but they'd let you sell them at 6.  Total fail and rape of the retail investor.

If you looked at the option quotes in individual stocks they completely disappeared. bid 0.10 ask 1000.00 etc.

This is nothing new. Option pricing formulas imply a perfectly liquid, gap-free market in the underlying. Once that condition is removed in a panic only an idiot will make you a market in options.

Even for big indexes like the SP500 I'd stick with the outright underlying like SPY/ES instead of the options if you want to make sure you can exit your short/put bet before expiration date with decent liquidity.

I was on TDAmeritrade the whole time.  Sold my SPY puts (limit) at 1140, bought some more (limit again) at 1130 and change, and re-sold those same SPY puts a few minutes later at $SPX 1095.  In between I sold my XRT puts.  Bid/ask spreads on SPY puts were reasonable until the break below 1080, then something went haywire.

 

On the rebound I got an execution on a 119 put.  The bid-ask spread on some SPY puts was as large as 6, but some were as little as half a point.  Let's hear it for Black/Scholes.

You can't enforce a spread, this is how any market works. If you were a market maker you would have done no differen (if you had any sense). As far as retail investors go, if they are ignorant of this fact they deserve to be 'raped', it's the only way they'll learn.

   I do not want to sound conspiratorial but a market that has been an unending low volume ramp job does not just crash in moments without coordination. All of this on a day that the Fed was the nearest they have ever been to a true audit and a potential bank breakup amendment? The news about Fed audit passing intact hit with Reid now backing a bank breakup hit about 11. Soon after and before the crash the White House released a "White House Opposes Fed Audit" and we know Bernanke was making rounds to Senators this week. For the market to have dropped like that the market making algos which just churn away all day to keep liquidity readily available vanished and what we discovered is that without them trading amongst one another nobody is left to buy. One of the many wonderful after affects of 2008 was Bear and Lehman vanished further placing market control in the hands of GS & JPM.

Somebody on here said it best yesterday that,"They paraded out the digital nukes". I also find it a bit coincidental that the selling time frame coincides with Jim Cramers brief 15 minutes on CNBC. I also found it odd that the most negative I ever heard CNBC was in those 5 minutes prior it was as if they were attempting to drum up fear with El-Arian was talking about how European banks are looking at each now with mistrust, they were talking about this being similar in terms of indicators to Lehman and they also had streaming video of the riots as bombs were going off and screaming was occurring. And in the middle of the sell off the bring on Roubini? If you wanted to crash markets for 20 minutes and bring it right back that is exactly how you would do it with all the visual and audio stimulants needed to affect psychology.  Go watch that whole 25 minutes.So either of the following events could have occurred IMO:

1) The errand boys for the big banks CEOs who are the stealth secret messengers for when they wish to coordinate a naked short attack or NFLX squeeze meet in whatever secret location like a Starbucks line and pass information on a napkin like 2:45. I would believe they all have employees who's sole job is to pass information to one another.

2) The computers puked because everyone with a brain said, "Hey this could really begin to occur not just in Greece but elsewhere and in states so if were gonna retest 10k I better get out now instead of waiting.

3) This was a tester. If it becoming evident to anyone in the markets over this time frame that all that is required is large volume to send the computers running. Perhaps some hedge fund bear or collection of hedge fund bears that have become pretty sick to their stomach of being squeezed out of positions by bully banks over the past year and wanted to see how to best to crack the computers. So they learned that just putting pressure on the pivots was not enough because when the volume left the algos returned. So they hit every pivot at once a few consecutive times in a short time frame to make the comps see red alert and they all pissed all over themselves. 

4) Maiden Lane unplugged to send a message to Senators.

OR

5) At 2:47 May 6th 2010 SkyNet became self aware.

Logic tells me that since the odds of an event like this occurring are about 1 in 23 million considering how the markets have moved so this had to have been intentional considering the coincidence of the negative bank legislation on the floor. The fact that it was bought up with impunity as if whoever caused it knew that everything would ok is even more indicative. Finally when you consider the prefabricated cover story about Citi this begins to look very much like an intelligence operation akin to TARP fear tactics.

good stuff...

I agree, this smells ENGINEERED

...in addition to your points some other things stand out, Jim Cramer says buy PnG at practically the precise moment market turns PnG climbs enormously, market recovers just before shut down point....

and also, is it normal for such a wild dip and recovery to be so freaking symmetrical...we had wild swings in fall 2008 and market would recover a great loss the next day etc but it never seemed so symmetrical, I mean the slope down and up the same market down 3 percent going in and coming out etc..Is that a normal, natural pattern?

although I think HFT is a real problem and could cause such mess without anyone intending, although many algos probably are more complex than their creators can understand, I still find it hard to believe there aren't some big ones out there with buy orders at low values for particular companies.. that should have stopped this madness quickly...and even if it was illiquid, why the symmetrical rise, we not a bumpy ride back up in a 30 min, not 5?

I'm also surprised Bernie caved, not compromised, caved...I think it was for something more than his political survival....

Echoes of 10-19-87.  I was in the pit then, and we had a 5 to 10-handle spread, albeit at much lower levels.

This is not over.  Sure they'll try to ramp it today and maybe even drum up a scapegoat, but this is the end result of a low volume, one year melt-up.  Everybody who wants in is in, thus no real bids below the market.  If there is a reason to get out (other than the obvious overvaluation in a dead economy), there will be no bid unless Bernanke prints it.

A thousand points is nothing.  We could have a forty percent week.  Guaranteed the PTB are petrified, and will effuse the usual pablum about how we'll get through this just fine.

A bad employment number (unlikely unless honesty suddenly takes root in government), or a bad German election this weekend, and it'll be deja vu all over again.

I spent 20 years on a futures exchange trading floor, and this tape is a joke (i.e. it is not a tape of a professional clerk quoting the market to traders).  Professional clerks maintain an even tone, and quote both sides (or "no bid" etc if there is only a 1-sided market).  Professional clerks never, ever tell a broker "that's too much!" (it is not a clerk's place in life to critique the bid/ask spread).  Most interestingly, 'noise' (the volume of sound) rachets up with selling, yet the background noise does not match the hysteria in the voice of the amateur quoting the prices.

This tape may be some product produced for a website, or for a brokerage firm, to 'make believe' retails clients can hear the floor.  Whatever it is, the voices are not professional clerks or traders.

At one time it was invaluable for listeners (and a huge money maker), until some of the big guns told him not to mention them and their trades.

As for amateur, his broadcast is his profession, but he also got his fancy coat about ten years ago.

I imagine traders at the big banks running to ZH to see what is occurring in the markets. Perhaps Bernanke checking ZH on his Blackberry.

Hey bernanke just invented another perpetual motion machine - tell the machines to remove all bidsand drop the thing 10%, then buy them cheap; sell the next day on no volume ramp up; a trillion wiped out, all in the Fed and cronies pockets, all in under 2 hours. And you guys are complaining about the Fed's 2 trillion balance sheet? No need for any further treasuries auctions for the rest of the year. Was that why the Treasury Department was cutting back debt issuance despite lower tax receipts ?  :) :)

Like I said: ON MAY 6TH 2010, THE MARKET CRASHED. THEY DECLARED MARTIAL LAW AND TRIED TO CANCEL THE CRASH. 

There never was any evidence of a "fat finger". Even so that should never crash the entire market. THe market volume was low and computers are not model 1987. They work on nanosecond time frames when it favors them. 

The circuit breaker was tripped: They locked people out of the options market for 25 minutes. Few trades executed in options. Today they're denying that published bids and asks were "real". They can make it up as they're going along. 

Another near death experience for the market and the US economy. Unfortunately for them today they are finger pointing, not proposing solutions, cheating customers and spooking market participants.

"89 evens" are 1089.00. When he says something like "82 half trades" he means 1082.50.

"70 even bid on 75" is 1070.00 bid for 75 contracts. Another way to say it is "70 bid for 75." That's shorthand for "I will pay 1070.00 for 75 contracts of June S&P 500 futures."

What you MIGHT have heard was "70 even bid at 75," which would be quoting a two-sided market, 1070.00 bid and 1075.00 offer.

As for what he's selling, nothing. He's just a guy quoting the S&P 500 futures pit for a service.

TRANSCRIPT: CEO of the NYSE explains what caused the drop in the market on 6 May 2010 on CNN

Q: Duncan first I think the big question is what happened today with the sell off

Duncan: Well that's a pretty broad question but I think you saw is asturbated volatility largely due to the Market structure

I think there was a lot of selling around the Greece issue But I think the market went down a lot more than it otherwise would have If it were not for some of the market structure and efficiencies.

Q: Talk about the market structure and efficiencies because as we spoke before you talked about SLOWED TRADES on this exchange and NOT OTHERS. It's complex but it's important to this.

Duncan: It's gonna sound very technical but we have a different market model than everybody else. We trade as fast as they do WHEN WE THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE.

But when there is very high volatility like there is today we have it in our market model to basically slow the market down and take 40 or 60 seconds sometimes to find the right price for a stock.

And today was, because of the volatility today THAT TRIGGER KICKED IN IN A LOT OF STOCKS so what happened ......

Q: Is that automatic or is that a decision made by the people here?

Duncan: It depends on the movement, it's stock by stock, you know how many, it's basically tied to the stock-price in every stock and if a stock moves down X amount at one time we say "wait Oh Minute lets find the right price", so we SLOW DOWN ....

Q: What happened we're talking about Procter & Gamble 3AM a centre major stock here that we're SLOWED?

Duncan: Right  .....so those are three examples and ITS PART OF OUR MODEL.. So, so please don't say SLOWED like that is a bad thing.

We actually think it's good for the issuers and investors. We think people are nervous. We decimate to the rest of the markets that the next trade in these stocks is not gonna be a milli second from now, it's gonna be 40 or 60 seconds from now.

The rest of the markets are free to trade around us, through us, with us anywhere they want and that's what they did today.

It turns out that we opened Procter and gamble a minute later at roughly the same price we traded it at the last time, the other markets have sold us down in that case 20% or 30% at the interim.

Q: The NASDAQ issue a statement saying that there was a faulty trade, there was an error made. Was does that mean for the average person?

Duncan: I think what happens is, I donnow that it's a faulty trade the way everyone would think about it. I think that everyone looking for the smoking gun saying what, what trader made a mistake, who had a fat finger and sold something it didn't mean to sell. My view is that is not what happened. What happens in these periods is, in a day like today, it may just take a few offers of people selling the put in a market sell order, the think they are gonna get filled near the price and because of THE OTHER ELECTRONIC MARKETS are thinly trade the next price maybe down 5, 10, 15 dollars and that 's how THINGS trade. So I think you'll see NASDAQ and other electronic markets, including Archipelago take trades off the tape later as erroneous.

Q: What was it like on the way up cause the market was off nearly a 1000 points. It closed down just 347, I say just because that was quiet a phenomenal recovery.

Duncan: Right, but if you think about it the market was down about 400 before WE WENT INTO THE SLOW MODE on Triple-M and P&G and Excenter and others and I think a lot of that move from 500 and than down a 1000 was people seeing these stocks trading strange prices getting a little nervous and you saw it snap back right away. There was not a lot of volume on the way down or frankly on the way back up and it doesn't surprise me that the market ended up closing down about 400 that's kinda where we were before we had the KNOCK OUT EFFECTS OF US saying: "Hee! we gonna slow down for a minute". We recommend to the other markets don't trade trough us during that time and they did.

Q: I was just gonna ask you that should that teach us that maybe all of the markets place should be connected in order to all slow their trades at the same time because you said we halted our trades for a while and others traded trough us?

Duncan: Right, and remember a while, I don't like to use the word halt cause halt means something else technically in the market OK. Halt means you may not open for an hour. THIS IS PART OF OUR MARKET MODEL. WE INTERVENE HUMAN JUDGEMENT. we do price discovery. It takes 40 to 60 seconds, it doesn't take forever and we think the market should wait. They obviously think  for competitive reasons they shouldn't have to wait and they are gonna trade at whatever prices they wonna trade at any interim

Q: Big question is how much money was lost as result of this trade? The market closed down near the lows of were it was before the sell off. But what kind of damage could this do to investors?

Duncan: Well, it's hard to know because we don't know how many trades, a lot of times what happens is these trades will be cancelled. People will say ; "Oh we didn't realize what was going on". The fact is that these electronic markets realize full well what is going on. They have policies to deal with these kind of things. The last time this happened frequently was during the crises where there were thousands of trades cancelled on a daily basis at the electronic venues because it's a different market model, so.

Q: Who or what if anything should or can be held liable. you said it's a different market model that's what the traders told me: "This is the new market place"

Duncan: Right, and in our view we think we've got the best market model no surprise we gonna say that right others think they have a better market model I think in periods in volatility like this our model shows it's value. A computer just looks for the next price that it can fill it's order at. So if you put a market sell order in and I am the only bidder on that electronic system your orders getting filled whatever my bid is. It could be 10, 20 40 dollars below the market price and I think we just have to say in periods of extreme volatility people should trade their orders more carefully. Now the SCC could come out and say; "He guys wait a minute" if it's a trading halt we get that you're not gonna wait. When it's one of these situations were it's a half a minute or a minute why don't we all wait and let cooler heads prevail.

Q: Yeah, the volatility will maybe over for the day, Asians markets will open shortly, European markets, this market place will open on Friday morning and heading into the weekend the big question is will traders want to hold their positions, with the volatility, with the crises in Greece and Europe. Question is Duncan what are you do going into tomorrow.

Duncan: I am not a trader any more I am just a guy running a business but I think the view is coming into a Friday after the week of volatility we've had, it's hard to believe people will come in with bids tomorrow but the market is sold off quiet a bit here and I think people are just trying to digest; " How big a issue is Greece? What is the contagion effect? You had a couple of people say today there's gonna be knock on effects were the credit market seems to be ceasing up. That's gonna make people really really nervous especially on a Friday in front of a weekend.

Q: It's a big question again as I've been saying all of doom what happens going into tomorrow.

Duncan: Yeah, yeah hard to predict I, It's, we'll find out tomorrow. I mean that makes the market right, so OK.

May Trix, a fitting foreshadowing of the denouement of the trusted, a reminder that the 'I Can't Believe it's not Capitalism' plan has not completely resolved the 'What Just Happened' Crisis; verily, some quarters, including this one, think our 'solution' has worsened the problem.

May Trix... A V-shaped 'Discovery': the shape of things to come.

The pablum narrative will probably focus on : (NY Times) In Washington, Treasury officials began combing market tapes for answers. By the evening they still had not gotten to the bottom of it, but they discovered some aberrations — market blips — in trading coming out of Chicago… As of about 6 p.m., all the officials knew was that there had been what one called “a huge, anomalous, unexplained surge in selling, it looks like in Chicago, at about 2:45.” The source remained unknown, but it had apparently set off algorithmic trading strategies, which in turn rippled across everything, pushing trading out of whack and feeding on itself — until it started to reverse...

And yet...

Fil Zucchi at Minyanville:

'Since everyone has an opinion on yesterday's 5 minute plunge, let me offer this:

•We've oft discussed that a tell-tale sign of risk withdrawal is a rising JPY/USD
•Currency movements are measured in 1/100 of a cent
•Between 10:50 and 14:00 yesterday, the JPY/USD rose 307 bps.; that's the kind of move people usually position for over a year period, not 3 hours
•Between 14:00 and 14:10 the JPY/USD gained another 100 bps. ; the S&P 500 (SPX) fell a modest 6 points in that time frame
•The plunge in the equity markets began in earnest at 14:10, after traders were already disorderly buying JPY/USD
• After 14:10 the JPY/USD gained another 150 bps. And that's when the SPX went into a tail-spin

Interpret the data as you wish, but the JPY/USD signaled crash-like risk aversion before the SPX went off the cliff. Maybe panic caused a "fat finger", but to these tired eyes, the selling was no mistake.'

Oh ye crazed randomwalkers, no doubt some revisionist rationale will be provided as to why the models don't, can't, and won't explain this latest 'reality' show.

The initial mongering (PHD and the like) crowd will hold up as a sticks-and-glue proof, that the bubbles in your soda pop do in fact explain the bubbles in your portfolio, something called the Generalized Auto-Regressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity Model and its variations. Seriously, you can look it up!

My retort? Got fractals?

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

The Band of the Hand can only create a Potemkin demand...

As in, the Atlanta Fed confirming that the major contributor to income growth during the past several months has been transfer payments.

As in, that birth death model... it ain't payin' no taxes!

Bread and Circuses divert folks from staring at the 'chickenless' pot...

As in , no Fed audit, no breakin' up the banks, but hey we might limit ATM fees to 50 cents!

And soon coming to the cineplex near you, the horror film, 99 Weeks Later.

They will inflate until they can’t. Inflation rewards those that have their wealth first. All roads lead to deflation. The stock market will bottom when no one cares. Much like the aristocracy when the barbarians are at the gates… you save the silver (banks) first. They will destroy the village (dollar and markets) in order to save it. After the deflation is overwhelmed, the West will never be the same.

In 1982 S&P bottomed at 6.6 P/E, a 15% earnings yield...

In 1974 S&P bottomed at 7.9 P/E, a 12.66% earnings yield...

In 1932 S&P bottomed at 5.6 P/E, a 17.86% earnings yield...

And 2012 is 40 days and 40 nights from 1932 dontchaknow...

History ingeminates and the truths you hold to be most dear are lies told to you by liars.

Posted May 1st - a week before the crash.

 '11,250 / 300 is an area of significant resistance and if this level can’t be breached it should signal the end of the March 2009 bear market rally - the weekly DOW chart shows an expanding wedge indicating a significant move is probable - this remains an overbought bear market rally and the uptrend could falter at any time - the VIX index continues to give bullish warnings which is bearish for equities - long term charts of key equity indexes continue to give bearish warnings and the March 2009 lows will be breached in my opinion - USD Index bullish warnings since 2009 on the weekly and monthly chart have not changed and further USD strength and thus EURO weakness is still expected '

Why the hell would he want to know the limit down before the price has even started moving rapidly? Just breaking through daily support isn't enough reason.

I meant right at the beginning where he says something is too big (not his finger).

Where he says "stop right here at 45, what is it, is it 75 then, 1050 something. 1053, so 90 handles, that's too much."

Thank you ZH!  This is the sound of a REAL market in action and what makes this country great.  There should be NOTHING changed in our markets.  The technology has merely sped up the action to match the pace of our data and technology driven society. 

 

There was nothing "disorderly" in Thursdays action as price discovery, and the natural ebbs and flows of the markets were displayed in all their vulgarity and magnitude for the eye to see.  Change nothing and let the natural market forces discover things for themselves.

 

The CBOT is the worlds oldest futures and commodities trading exchange and we practically invented this shit.  Let it ride baby, and bring on the volatility.  This is what makes this country great!

Yes, and I have also been sighted with Ron Levin in Greece vacationing during the Athens riots last week.  I guess, in your view the markets are pre-disposed to go up all the time and any disconerting drops that affect your 401k plan that you expect to grow to a $million dolllars should be outlawed.

You are right, it is not possible for a market to decline so much in one day and it is due to blueblood whitecollar sociopaths leaching money off of the working class, to feed their gambling addiction.  Or better yet, it was a computer glitch that erased one trillion dollars of market cap in 30 minutes.  

Everything is a scam to take away the "high life" and throw us out of our homes.  In fact, I want some more free money from the fed, so I can live in my home with no mortage payment.  Crack me open a cold one my friend, for the markets will rise again and all will be well.

Everything is a scam to take away the "high life" and throw us out of our homes. In fact, I want some more free money from the fed, so I can live in my home with no mortage payment. Crack me open a cold one my friend, for the markets will rise again and all will be well.brooklyn real estate - baltimore mortgage loans - las vegas mortgage loans - mortgage - homes for sale - travel insurance - mortgage calculator

I wish my article helps. Comparing with searchingcustomized jerseys, I think finding a good way of keep your bag new is a better way. You do not need to pay much. Whatever, no matter how cheap the airmax is, you will pay over $150. Of course, if you want to buy fake coach purses, it will be another thing.You have been provided with an option to have a look on the different product types independently or you can select an option to view all of the product types together. You can buy some nike air trainers there.

Many trendy and fashion nike shop are getting much cheaper than 7 years ago. And almot all the women can spot fake bags from

serial number. All the original old football shirts have been known for their outstanding quality. There are many coach bags

which are made of geunine leather. These series of coach bags are very difficult to copy. So there are very little fake coach handbags made of leather. Once you saved up enough

money, invest in quality and real soccer shirts. You will find them fashionable and trendy. If you budget allows, I strongly

suggest you buying original coach products.

If you want to re-style or dye your remy hair extensions, always go to your hair extensions stylist. Never dye your extensions or use chemical processes--like perms--at home. At home, chemical processes run the risk of damaging the hair extensions. Let your clip in hair extensions specialist handle any dye jobs.

David Hohnen is the man behind Cape Mentelle. He planted the first vineyards in 1970, which makes him one of the Margaret River pioneers. The dyed fabric success of this venture led him to found Cloudy Bay in New Zealand’s Marlborough region in 1985. In 1990 textile industry Veuve Clicquot acquired 50% of best bath towels the business, and then in 2000 they took 100% ownership.
