Excellent information throughout the past week with this nonsense of an explanation from the SEC, Tyler.
If anyone would be interested in collaborating on a scholarly article (would be published) regarding this May 6th issue, please get in touch.
I'll gladly contribute crayon drawings.
Perfect, felt markers are preferred but i will keep you in mind.
get cheeky and his chalk and blackboard, that is 28 feet long. i know he can do it.
I'm thinking rude images of Mary Schapiro...
(o )Y( o)
I wonder if on the other end it's a (__.__) ? or more of a (__o__) ?
That's what the ass-terisk is for!
I would be interested. I am a Physicist/Mathematician/Engineer and "can do math"
I'm an overextended consumer who "can spend money" I don't have. I'll be happy to dispose of any reward money paid for exposing this fraud. Call me. :>)
The SEC's report maintains that a large fundamental seller (Waddell) started an avalanche of selling by HFTs. Looking at the charts, Waddell unloaded size right before Nanex's tipping point around 14:44:20. From there, the SEC says HFTs began a frenzy of hot potato trading to blow off inventory after absorbing Waddell, driving prices down.
Vitally important to see Waddell wasn't there during the fall, and it underscores the whole point - HFTs drove the market down all by themselves after Waddell's sells hit the market. That's what we've been saying all along, isn't it? HFTs exacerbate price movements with aggressive trading. "Liquidity providers"? Sure, just don't hit the tipping point, whatever they say it is, because it's a long way down.
It's great to see these charts. Why weren't these charts in the Flash Crash report itself?
somebody with their pants on fire and hanging from a telephone wire over at the sec?
Combine that with pr0n and the mental picture is just sooo disturbing! :>D
hi y'all, your favorite cut of meat here again :) Why do i do / have done these playlists? I think music and ZH belong together, the beating heart of the revolution if you will. Plus there are so many great artists out there its not like you can hear it on the radio or hear about it in popular media. Hopefully I can introduce you to something you like but never would have heard of otherwise (that has certainly been the case with ZH readers sharing songs with me).
meh. (a playlist): http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=48CE3C94FAB01826
the next posting of this i'll throw in an extra playlist (mostly rap instrumentals) for those of y'all looking for a smooth wind down of the week :D
ps: bookmark this page to play some of RadioZero's classic sets whenever you have the urge http://radio.cl.zerohedge.com/
I'm going to see Emancipator and Bassnectar in a couple of weeks ... Bassnectar live is the soundtrack to revolt.
I'm based in Altanta and just found out Bassnectar is playing New Years at my favorite venue in the universe (the Tabernacle). I am eagerly awaiting.
Nice ... I'm in Chicago, we have Pretty Lights on NYE which should also be awesome. I saw Bassnectar 2 years ago at Lollapalooza, at that point didn't know much about that genre of music, it changed me though.
Check this Bassnectar clip out, especially from 2:40-3:12, your head will explode. Can we start a sub-group here at ZH that enjoys raging to this type of music, there have got to be more of us seeing as though it is the soundtrack to revolution.
oh to be one of those lucky souls dancing on stage. boom goes the dynamite!
there are indeed more of us, many more, who are all about raging to the sound of this revolution. i wish there was more to say, i don't have any inside scoop so atm this is more a hope than a promise, but i see tunes being more integrated into this site one day. keep pimpin, pimpin
Four Tet next week and Bonobo early Nov, good stuff coming up
oh steaky, your my most favorite. your so generous and kind to start posting your incredible taste in music. i can't tell you how much i love you. your kind and adorable. now can you get cheeky to come back and talk to you, like last winter and spring. maybe he would come back and be heard again. this is all good. kiss kiss, kath.
Edit: H A P P Y f r i d a y ALL
hi everybody! this individual was formerly known as Velobabe. its (not sure if its a him or her) modus operandi is to lure ZH contributors and readers with promises of naked pictures. it has tried SEVERAL times to "out" the identities of ZH members, so PLEASE be very careful if you find yourself in a dialogue with this person.
like cheeky or not, this individual is the reason why he is not here anymore. be vigilant, the internet can be a dangerous place and this person is a big reason why.
I would assume that this poster has been tracked to the same IP address?
I've been perplexed by the belief that this "individual" is velobabe because the writing and narative voice are distinctively different, imo. If the point of origin is the same as velobabe, I would argue that there are two possible explanations:
1) This is an extremely skilled conman/woman (moronic presentation notwithstanding)
2) It's more than one person playing this game.
The game, of course, is extremely transparent, in any case, just sayin' .
'distinctly different' for real? Seriously, it is totally obvious they are the same simply by the way it types.
Not to my eyes or ears. Not that it necessarily matters.
I always assumed she was drunk, sometime sober but lies alot or has multiple lives.
Once i realized i could be tracked by diverse comments made, and giving out too much info, i changed my lifestyle , own myself more, things less but trust NO ONE but myself. Is survival becoming a lost art?
Steak has no reason to lie. You need to answer this charge. I can check this out for myself, anyway, but I'd like to hear from you if it is true or not. I will not answer your posts anymore until this is cleared up. I ask our community to consider shunning her/it, until we have heard from her/it on this topic. Outing folks here is VILE, HATEFUL, and quite frankly, Borderline Personality Disorder behavior.
I actually tracked her down and perused her internet identity. It's not a full hold water type of thing you would expect from a person. I think she is piggy backing someone elses identity that has an actual working brain. She does do drugs. I can empath that and she's drunk and stoned alot. But hey we had coke snorting traders on wall street all during the 80's and prescription drugged ones during the 00's. So why not a drugged out troublemaker.
I know you must have figured out that it clearly has a personality disorder -- you seem pretty no nonsense so your gut must have told she's (it's) not right, right?
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheeple?
Thank God you're based outside the USA. I think the penalty for defacing an official "senior high school....er.....senior member of the white house fraud crew" photo is 10 years of water boarding in Guantanamo plus $100 Million Million fiat bucks.
Hope they take a check. Now, how many zeros in $100 Million Million?
Is this a ZH sign in dialogue?
The answer to all future CAPTCHA questions in the universe is "Floating Decimal Points".
Ah... I understand, now...
I think the picture would be a lot more believable if the circuitry on the head were a lot smaller.
yes, and maybe with a few burned out diodes and capacitors as well.
Surely you mean less components - perhaps some antiquated ones like a simple HV throw switch (for on/off), a vacuum tube valve and 2 lamps for yes and no - but no is burnt out.
As an alternative, you can create a toothless tiger caricature, perhaps a circus clown.
i know, out here in unwashed land, we're supposed to be dumb as dirt, and sitting around waiting for Shapiro to "enlighten" us......
Where they will be found "guilty" before ever being allowed to speak.
Like going to an IRS hearing but with the same end result.
Guilty before being "proved" innocent.
It's time for Mary to run to Lloyd for a little cry.
Give the SEC a break. It's hard to do real research when you're busy surfing porn and deciding what chinese take-out dish to order.
Scape goat excuse for regulatory capture.
upside down house, good one, sancho ponzi er ello.
I dunno - Bart Chilton said they slaved over the charts for days!
Concerned but powerless. No teeth...they dont want to get to the bottom of it, its probably in national interests that they dont.
NP. Buy Oct spx 200 calls
I would be fascinated to know the extent of W&R's cooperation on this- was it just giving permission, or more active? I am curious because I had assumed that someone from the SEC quietly told them "We're going to take you behind the woodshed on this publicly, and you aren't going to say shit because we need a scapegoat. Keep quiet and you'll be fine. Nice little business you have there... shame if something were to happen to it". Is W&R fighting this in the open?
It is hard to get one's head around all of the fraud and blatant deception going on right now. This, the market green on the foreclosure halt news and poor jobs data... they aren't even attempting to be subtle anymore.
It is hard to get one's head around all of the fraud and blatant deception going on right now.
Really? That's how governments keep power. Been this way since the first governing bodies were formed throughout history. Nothing new here. It's inherent in any governing system.
Perhaps, but my point was that it is the sheer volume, coupled with the lack of subtlety, that is unusual. So I would argue that the scope and scale ARE sort-of new here. And it reeks of desperation.
