Because when you have infinite toner cartridge, who needs to trade?
Just practicing for The Big Day ?;o)
Rumor has it, they think the market may be manipulated.
Not by them...that's what's pissing them off.
I think this has to do with Iranian rials and the hoover action going on. Won't know until the dust settles later today.
Executive Order 12631--Working Group on Financial Markets:
Or perhaps they are concerned that the markets are becoming un-manipulated.
Better yet: Executive Order 11110
There are no markets, there are only interventions.
Silver is going bananas with it's big brother gold.
In the hall it was whisphered....margin call and delivery now.
They've done a great job of cramming silver & gold back down while allowing stocks to go up today. Congratulations, assholes.
I love those guys (for now). I thought I'd missed the cheap seats for the ride up when I got online this morning. But thanks to them, I bought a few more tickets an hour ago.
Yup, I noticed last week 1785 is the "red line," every time it's crossed that in the past couple weeks it's triggered an aggressive beat-down.
Pretty clear TPTB don't want AU leading with 18XX. They won't be able to stop it forever, though.
Who writes the print again? Oh.. LBMA. No price discovery, just slavery.
It's the green line on my chart
And $35 for silver is a biggie too...
dec oi is ~90,000 for ag. this could be the time
What? Both are getting hammered lower now.
And I am sure this has nothing to do with paper trading being suspended [cough].
But the hedge funds are trading higher today, with GS +5, JPM +1, BAC +.30
the new trick will be suspending trading then margin hike. Followed by an ear piercing "AAAND ITS GONE BITCH!"
It's 21st century confiscation. If the price is trading too high, we shut the market mechansisms off. The price will be what we say it is OR ELSE.
Oh shit! you took the words right out of my mouth!
Most inopportune halt with Bernanke on the podium in an hour.
Accch! Not again. The best chairsatan is one you never hear from. Silver bugs need to don their helmets and flak jackets. *wink*
Drive to the ATM as fast as possible. It may be about to "malfunction."
My scuba gear is ready to rock.
I guess all that fresh fiat from Santa Ben will just have to go into stocks to preserve people's wealth.
Due to the terrorist networks disruption of the financial markets I am issuing executive order number 139.. The shut down any site I deem threatening act....the abiltily to shut down web sites at my discretion will provide for free and safe financial markets.
Barak H. Obama
"Cry havoc, and let slip the cyber-dogs of war."
Because it's the right thing to do.
He wouldn't shut down my free phone, would he?
If you're part of the bottom 90%, you'll be fine. If you're part of the top 1%, you'll be super-fine. If you're in that narrow 9% band that's left, you're going to get fucked six ways to Sunday.
It's Bush's fault. Heckuva job, browneye.
Of course not. Not a Nobel Peace Prize like him.
By the way, heard that the next Nobel Peace Prize is going to go to Nathanyahu for his work in promoting peace in the Middle East.
when the totalitarian facist state takes control we'll know cause zerohedge will be gone
Fear, rumours, manipulation and greed can do incredible things to a market in both directions within minutes.
God Save the Queen! Better hide the Silver....
Single file please...
Askless! Except for jpms school of whales traders.
Technical trading halt. So which trading desk "technically" went TU?
Technical difficulties= we are losing control of precious metals.
Oops, sorry, I thought it was the light switch.
Ah, Molson Coors Brewing was down 3.3%. It was the silver bullet wot done it.
Quite a day so far. One doesn't need to have on a tin foil hat to sense the concerted effort to suppress PM prices.
Just the 3 month maintenance on the algorithm. Must make sure the public loses
Don't check your wallets while there are no software generated graphs to let you know how well the economy is doing. Consumer confidence may go down.
Blythe had to go the red phone, apparently.
None of this matters. I got me an Obama phone!
the correct grammar...I just got me a Obama phone...
Me ann all mah naughty here in Cleavland got us Obama Fone bitches!! And he gunna do moe!
Yall feel me? (as I recoil from my computer screen in shock)
Elektick bill, gas bill, automobills and all!
Fox News no less:
“The free Obama phone is an important program, especially for low income families that would otherwise not have access to basic communications,” the homepage of obamaphone.net reads.
The site does, however, clarify that Obama did not start the program and that there's no such thing as an "Obama phone."
"It’s true that government provides free cellphones to the poor and disabled people," the site reads. "But the Obama part is not true as Obama didn’t initiate this program. It’s on the run [sic] since the administration of Reagan."
............because access to basic communications is a human right since, ...since...........ah fuckit, it's FREE! GIBSME!
None of this matters. I got me an Obama phone
as if anyone who has an OBarry phone would actually be aware of "this".
He didn't make that phone.
Correct! Reagan did.
What's that? Over there! By the stage! Is that a FIRE?
Look, it's a monkey!
And a flying one at that!
Just for one brief moment, it would be SO cool to know what the fuck was going on. Seems to be a pretty elusive moment these last few years. Does not appear to be one government official or ranking banker in the known world who will tell anything close to the truth (except maybe the Czech pres), and 'official data' is manipulated garbage, to be revised closer to sort-of reality next week or next month.
I think even the algos are getting confused. (Horrors!)
Some single handed, rogue I.T. guy akin to that single handed trader post the other day perhaps, again drunken at his post no doubt... CTRL-P???
Luv this thread...!!
Turn those machines back on!!!
Bullish if I ever seen!
So, this is bullish for tungsten, right?!?
The roadrunner is suspended in midair after failing to stop at the edge of the fiscal cliff.
Read this chart and weep, codgers:
Bitcoin is utterly dependent upon both a functioning Internet and power grid. Ask anyone in India how they liked having their funds locked up in cyberspace.
...if you can't use or convert BitCoins because the infrastructure is unavailable then your money has been essentially stolen anyway (if you can't hold it you don't own it).
Bitcoin is great as a currency, but it does have some SERIOUS risks.
"Bitcoin is utterly dependent upon both a functioning Internet and power grid. "
Nowadays, so is the banking system. Vesting in bitcoin just means that I'm making a bet that the net will be up next year.
But the Dow was up 150 points on bullish, no wait bearish - let's call it WTF news.
So everything is ok.
So, at the end of the day, what was the explanation?
