Tyler Durden's picture





 

Today's intraday bizarro market: bonds and dollar ticking higher, as stocks pretend to climb, with VIX sinking all day.

It's not trading, it's whack-a-mole. Whomever is going against what policy dictates gets a whack on the head! Watch this thing jump in the last fifteen minutes.

no, JPM and GS won't blow up. All they need to do in that scenario is call up turbotaxcheater and Benzimbwe and say this:  "We need another blank check and we need it now."

the response would be "done"

Good day ladies and gentlemen.  We have now entered a part of the markets known as the twilight (*cough* Donnie Darko *cough*) zone, where correlations count for horse manure of the most concentrated kind.

Washington DC only predictable market there is, where re-election is the fixed price for any favor.

i think, you can't predict any market when the yield curve is plateauing.

your reason will be defied.

do we have any yield curve experts out here?

does any such thing exist in this universe?

Kinda... well not really in this current universe. John Galt was throwing down some yield curve ideas yesterday.  Unfortunately, the only curves most want to look at are the RoboTrader hot-plate special of the day.

I figure if people have issue with Tyler's call on it, he set up a special number for you: (288) 555-1534

In case the Fed, Goldman Sachs, China, or Japan reads this posting... Can someone push FAZ down to $5 or lower?  Come on, give it a try.

Looks like a double top head fake shoulder slide cup between leg forming elliot leg shift handle resitant parabolic support noise which is evidence of predictable outcome.

TD, for those w/t BlomyLP, can we see who started buying SPX at around 2:44 (Semptember daylight time savings, 1 hr back?); it's kind of earlier than usual must be another green shot release after hours...

No worries, Mercury goes retrograde next week with congress in session, next thursday we have Saturn and Uranus in opposition for a full week. Look for the sell off to last until the options expiration, but we'll probably pop tomorrow first.

if it pops in the a.m., my anus is adding to my short position.
