As Traders Leave The Building, RISK-ES Spread Comes Galloping Back

Tyler Durden's picture


Now that every carbon-based trading life form has long since left the building, and only the robots and Brian Sack's NYU interns are left loading up bags, the good old ES-RISK divergence has once again opened up to the same 10 point spread which prompted us to advise for a compression trade yesterday. Sure enough, like clockwork, the vacuum tubes come crawling with limited dry powder, and can only bid up ES while leaving everything else in the dust. A compression bet here will likely close the same way it always closes once some rationality returns and the PPT steps back.

I am a proud bag holder in my retirement account( long Fidelity Growth Equity stock, long Gold miners since a month).

Yep they offer Gold miners in  401a retirement account, though I know they will nationalize miners in the not so distant future - hope to be quick enough to do a "penis withdrawal" technique before the nationalization happens with the miner stocks.


Anyone took my advice to buy physical Gold when it hit $1475 last week ?

With only 40-min left into the ES close a total NET 1,420 aggressive traders had lifted the offer for the entire day.  That final "stick save" of sorts on MASSIVE BUYING had the ES close out with with 33,520 NET aggressive buyers over aggr. sellers.  Quite a rapid change, eh? 

Without the aggressive sellers into the bid, the NET buyers would'a been ~65,000.

I'm guessing a lot of small traders phoned their brokers and said buy all at once.

Yeah, right!

What I believe really happened late in the trading day is buy stops were hit on the way up. Basically short covering into the weekend. Happens all the time. This little rally didn't mean didley. It hit the 50% retracement.

Alcoa kicks off earnings season and we should see if the bears will have the upper hand. Remember, option expiration is next week, so when both options expiration and earnings are in the same week, you should see at least one nice down day between Monday through Wednesday. Some bullshit story will bring down the market sometime during those 3 days, then come Thursday around 2:30 EST the big boys on the floor will see where the dumb money is betting on with options and will bet against the heard and make a killing.

Google reports on Thursday I believe so a Google strangle with some out of the money put/call options would be a nice trade

We get an 800+ point rally on the Dow Jones over the past two weeks prior to the release of the NFP data, and data that was far worse than anyone's expectations only shaves 60+ points from the Dow Jones.  It must be nice for Wall Street to know that the market can ignore every bit of lousy macroeconomic data.

The money to pump equities must be coming from somewhere.  It is obvious that the only trick the Fed has up its sleeve is to pump the equity markets.  Too bad that food and energy prices share the ride higher as Joe Sixpack takes it on the chin.

Exactly, must keep ETF's up (401K's), that way no one will get the funny idea to sell and mess up the whole plan of rading said 401K's for all theyre worth real soon. People dont get this SIMPLE obvious scenario? Then good luck to em, theyll need it big time.
In case anyone forgot the Treasury news about this and Zerohedge threads
The endgame is wiping out your 401K's, enjoy, sleepy US sheeple.

how many times are you gonna post the same bullshit idea.  they will not take 401k's, they very well may make early withdrawal illgeal/even more highly taxed, they might give you only the option of investing in treasuries, they might tell you only brian sacks can allocate your 401k but they will not tell everyone that they're 401k's have been rolled into ssn. and based on the article you link to the obvious choice will be to reduce your contribution to as little as possible as the link makes it sound like it will go from defined contribution to defined benefit.

This is a leaked photo of one of the new algo-bots, collocated underneath the exchanges:


Let's just hope that this new system is better than the past systems, for the sake of pensioners with equity exposure, 401(k)ers, and others dependent on the back to 1987 level indexes (in real terms) in order to retire.

Let's hope that Nikkei 40k to 10k from about 1990 to present is a myth and/or one-off type deal, and that because we're doing exactly what Japan's government and central bank did back then, we'll prove that they just didn't do it hard enough, or with enough feeling.

Let's hope...

You are getting hit from all sides Sheep.

Here's a quick tip: you know there is a world gov't, cashless society coming.  Yet you find yourself at this stage in life in life where you are writing on the internet:

Come on Vanilla Ice....describe your bike and its race setup.

Listen to some Randy Newman dude.  It's good for the soul!

It's an FZ-1. Black and silver like the Oakland Raiders. She'll do 148 at the top end with a power band that just screams more. I never wanted to buy her but when I road her for the first it was like the money just appeared. Wanna talk trucks too? My last one had a bed in the back. U know what the girls say: "business up front, party in the back."

I bet the professionals drove the market up the last couple of weeks so they can get a higher price and exit before earnings season. I'll bet my left nut on it! Strike the last part. Bastards are doing it on my dime.

I'm not greedy Robo.  As the old cowboy philosopher Will Rogers said when asked in 1936 or thereabouts...what kind of return are you getting on your money will?  He answered that he wasn't so much interested in the return on his money but "The Return OF His Money!  I picked up two more maple leaves from an individual last week at spot.  The fed is forcing the suckers and widows out there to reach for day they will get their arms chopped off.  Go for it Robo...reminds me of early 2000.

Bagholders of U.S. equities have lost money for 24 years now.

Look at the charts.

The Dow and spooz are back to early 2000 levels, while the Nasdaq is back to 50% of early 2000 levels - in NOMINAL terms.

Adjusted for inflation, the Dow and S&P are back to approximately 1985 levels.

But of course, RoboMomoFader has traded all the pivots correctly (all 500 trillion of them intraday, every day, on tens of thousands of stocks), and he's also managed to avoid the many roadkill/extinct/hero-to-zero stocks that wiped out many an investor (think dot.coms in 2000 or financials in 2008), while minimizing the incredibly inefficient tax consequences of trading in mass volume (even when losing principal).

He's the bestest trader ever.

so I se these posts a lot of times, but I don't know what esu basket or the intiials on the other line stand for. Look the powers that be love hft, instead of buying one big block they can move the market up or down much easier by continual small blocks. easier manipulation. the same amount sopent gets you a burst with one big block, but a continual wave of manipulation with hft. have a tobin tax and it's gone. not based on amount ?dollar of trade? but per trade for professionals. since they trade for free, why shouldn't they have to pay like the rest of us.
