I'm glad some action has finally been taken. Equities drops are now officially illegal in America.

Nerdy libertarians need to deal with it.

 Rule 48 halts the requirement for market makers to send pre-opening indications, or bid and ask prices created in auctions used to determine a stock’s opening price. The regulation is used only when the “potential for extremely high market-wide volatility would likely impair floor-wide operations at the exchange,”

Do we get these sort of moves on the upside on a rally? No we do not! When authorities interfere they can make things worse and not better as uncertainty creates fear. Also there is this factor described here.

If we put such thoughts into the economic sphere I would like to look at again the theme that I have developed which is of central banks interfering ever more in world affairs. Apart from the problems I have suggested with this philosophy before we have yet a new example of “the unexpected” damaging their plans. I hope that they will realise that it is their philosophy which is wrong rather than try to intervene even more.

1) set up a tax-deferred retirement account!

2) buy these mutual funds which pay me!

3) there!  now you are "invested and diversified".  now, when you retire you just do this 'n that, see?  and, if you want to "change or adjust to changing conditions", you can change the "mix" of your investments and everything!

the bots are bots.  the sharks are sharks.  the blood is the blood of the financial faithful.  they still have uncle sugar for a partner and they are still "invested for the long term".  tyler may hafta take the pulitzer for this, from yest:  "...a clusterflock of black swans..."

i am personally fascinated by the idea that we seem to think there is still such a place and thing as the "NYSE".  who?  where?  oh yeah---behind Rule 48!  no, this is just the PPT, making sure da boyz don't get front-run, demselves, ain't it?  dey have now bought da fuking dip.  except for GE, of course...

as the statistical analyses of this healthy little chance for "the markets" to get ready for the next up-surge begin to shoot outa the asses of the unicorns like skittles into goldi's pretty mouth, perhaps we shall also be treated to the grand total of the weight and types of radioactive rods and waste that are being incinerated, reminding ourselves that, #5 comes after #4, and #6 after #5, and  that, except for some strange, new "seedings" this year, March Madness has yet to begin!!!

Sad truth is,Wall St. Whores don't give a rat's ass what happens to those people in Japan, all they care about is what their little pimp daddy Bernanke is going to do so they can get their money and blow. The whole world could fucking blow up and they would find a reason to ralley. So let's just show Japan how concerned we are by tanking their markets for the last 2 days and protecting ours. Isn't that what happened? They kicked them while they were down and robbed them blind and now rig our market so they don't take too big of loss here.. What a crock of shit. Why didn't they just steal the  money from the Japanese government? So go ahead tough guys, flex your muscles and show the world you don't give a shit about anything and ralley our market into the green on all the good economic news in the world right now.
