Replaying The Flash Crash

Tyler Durden's picture


Just because it was less than half a year ago, and just because it is certain to occur again, and just because so many have already forgotten what that "end of the world" feeling was like and are back to collecting pennies in front of an out of control rollercoaster, here is, once again, the historic CNBC footage from May 6, in the minutes leading to the 1,000 point drop on the Dow Jones, when the Fed lost all control. Hopefully this will remind all those who are supposed to fix the market, yet continue to merely enforce the interests of those who brought the market to this pathetic state, just how many tens of trillions of dollars are at stake.

oh yeah, great audio! but after watching and listening to that talking dumbass Airhead Burnett for 8:48, I think I lost a significant portion of my brain cells

How is it possible for anyone that fucking stupid, oh wait, I get it, she helps make Cramer look smart.

Notice the difference in his voice when he says "that move through the figure was nuts" ...he meant it, he felt it in his bones and thats why humans make better traders than machines. Humans might make the occasional fuck up, but atleast we know when something has gone horribly wrong.

Yes Sir, but we need to, must, start connecting to people around us… many are not ready for the undoing… I agree it will be in full daylight… but it happens in an instant… 1 or 2 days and all things change.  Tyler, and few others have posted scenarios… all are probable… but some version is very close at hand.

I've been working on my brother for two FUCKING years! Should I just give up?! He is my flesh and blood, but dang I gave him some silver, but he has a great resume complete with a Princeton edu-MA-fucking-cation and a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University! All I got is a bunch of shiny things in my basement! I gave him one ounce for each family member. And dang I ain't gonna give him no mo.

ponder that his education has trained his mind to think in certain patterns, and any things outside those patterns are not thought.

while, perhaps, you have more room to. . . think.

maybe it will be you who saves your family - stock up your basement (foods, water, etc.) as if your lives depended on it, don't waste your energy trying to convert the minds, direct experience will be the best teacher. . . just have the basics, and your lack of surprise when it finally happens.

Ask him to read Aftershock… too many first bought this book and expected to reap profits… they missed what was stated. Prediction is like throwing copper into a fire, you know it burns in vibrant color…but which color… and for how long.


They (the authors) had a full year of lead time before print, the essence of what they saw was systematic debt default, followed by currency default. On debt default, it’s hard to argue this is not major issue, on currency default; the race to bottom is in the charts.


Remember this, you’re brother is…and will always be… and it will be difficult on even the prepared… Love him and help him…


One thing about Aftershock, it ends right for all… in that we do change into something that works. IN many way’s it’s the American approach and it is the conviction that exists nowhere else.

Yes Sir... there was a time a short position made money, and a long position did not... when a bear roamed.. A few here have traded a short position that was spot on.. knowing it was right... then watched, and covered. I know the short numbers are huge, but something is very wrong. Not when we see 1400 to 1.

The current run up is just that... this all breaks soon. Not becuase I say it does, but because it no longer makes any sence... I buy bars... each month, and ammo.

Oracle and FED, I believe you are both completely correct.

With the correlations so tight now, I think it is imperative to act in a similar way to smart Oracle: bought productive land in Peru with water onsite.  Now THAT is diversification (babiez)!

Can't do that?  If you do not own gold, that is Step 1.

Diversification.  Flexibility.  Alertness.  The three keys to getting through this.

I guess my take home reminder from the replay of this moment is the speed with which change can come.

The meltdown might just as well have been anything, not just the Dow. It could have been the value of the dollar. It could have been bonds melting down or soveriegn defaults. It could have been another leg down in housing. It could have been an oil shock or a sudden war breaking out. It could have been gold mines being nationalized by the government.

Preserve what you have. Be prepared and self sufficient.

Many often wonder how "they" live with themselves.  Shearing sheeple is a lot easier if it is according to a moral code: [a fool and his money are soon parted].   They sleep quite well knowing they have given you 3 clear warnings:

1.  Bear Sterns, vaporized from 30 to 2 over the weekend.  No shares traded.

2.  GM senior bond holders stiffed.  Hundreds of years of legal precedent flushed.

3.  The flash crash:  "WE CAN TAKE THIS TO ZERO IN MINUTES"


If you still own ANY form of paper wealth, you are an absolute and complete moron over whom no one will shed a tear when you get VAPORIZED.  You have been warned many times.....


P.S.  If you can't quit your job right now, borrow half the 401k and buy physical silver.  Worst case scenario you default on yourself :-)

a simple portfolio of 50% bonds and 50% stocks would have done some 8% per year, compound annually, in both Japan and in the USA during both periods mentioned.  progress is understanding that diversification wins the game.  gold should be in portfolios too. for those who can deal with no yield, they should own a little more of it.  back in 1995 I opined the "superior nature" of japanese stocks selling for 40X earnings relative to the USA at 14X earnings, wondered why Japanese stocks were somehow "better" in the premium paid.  you can finally buy japan.  bubble all gone.  price to earnings now looks good.  earnings actually rose over the last 20 years, too.  earnings drives price, ultimately.  10 years ago the s&p was 35X earnings.  now the bubble is all gone.  go find a bubble and don't buy it.  sort of pathetic but it's really that easy.

There is so much BS there I can't even filter it.  What about the stocks that disappeared?  Oh that's right, they removed Enron, Worldcom, Bear and Lehman from the indexes.  And you never had anyone in those? BS.  Yields were at 6% in 2000 on the ten year and are crashing to zero and then default or double digits ala the FED.  Even if your phony 8% number is correct, which it isn't.  That still only matches shadow inflation over the same period, so your investors STILL HAVE ZERO.  Go back to fleecing suckers in mutual funds, your wasting your breath here ;-)

Rule #1


The McSheeple only see daisies in the rear view mirror. If I hold on to my 401K tech funds for a long enough time period, they'll come back!


Intel will trade at $120, I know it!
And my 5 bedroom plastic and styrofoam mcMansion with a view of my neighbor's bathroom will once again be worth $750,000.

I know it!

Silver at $17.46 - those were the days!

Perhaps worth mentioning is that Silver was trading at $18.80 on Monday May 4, down to $17.35 when Cramer appears - that's almost an 8% drop.

Since then the Dow has bounced back 9.4%, while Silver is up 22.7%.

Just saying, bitchez.

In reality, the market did crash.  We've been living in the 'matrix economy' ever since.

The market won't get fixed until it is truly broken.  That's how the USA works, and that is why the USA won't get fixed until it is truly broken as well...

The CNBS monkeyz should be made to watch this over and over. What a bunch of hacks. I bet they all went a little poo when the market was down over 900 pts.
