They need the off-line time to orient all those newly employed (8% electability) exchange employees.

Agreed. Propping the global markets with fake money and false promises on razor thin volume has got to be stressful. Lets hope the central planners take a little R&R - you know,  so they'll be well rested before they have to start running from the blood thirsty mobs with torches and pitchforks.

The COMEX is getting quite a history here between Corzine and allowing the continual flash crashes of gold and silver.

The algos failed in the test environment, so they need to reprogram them ahead of the pre-determined trigger flash-crash words that are coming out this afternoon.  (It's in the manual.)

I just flipped over to CNBC from Bloomberg to see what those idiots were saying, was only to stay tuned for 28 seconds before Cramer did his dick face and everyone else laughed, had to tune away.

we must have watched the same 28 seconds. Cramer reminds me that as a goldman alum....wall street desperately wants Obama back in there.

+1+  I sometimes watch the roundtable prior to 8AM central.  Once 8am rolls around and they get cramer on there I just turn the channel for the rest of the day.  they must have some research that says he is good for ratings somehow.  i dont see it.

Here NYSE.  I can help out here, and I dont charge a million dolloar fee for it.  My considerable years of strategic placements, and invaluable experience in the fields of finance leave me unequally placed to offer a finding that is deep sighted and full of rational exuberance.  The situation you find yourself in here is a mixture of stratagies as such.

Its fucking fraud you filthy criminals, top to bottom cuntish fraud.

Selling your filthy soul for a fist full of dollars.  May you all burn in damnation you scheming bastard shysters

How else they going to get those guys to trade STOCKS other than shutting down commodity trading?


Think it through...open trade of COMMODITIES might actually allow for real PRICE discovery...we can't be having that can we?

Not sure if the tech people for NYSE LIFFE are the same as those for NYSE/AMEX but it isnt that remarkable to me.  I have long complained that something as simple as their billing system is so fing antiquated it is a farce.  try paying your monthly fee for NYSE data for instance.  They helpfully provide the wire instructions and swift code and an address for checks if you are so lowly as to use that.  Any way to pay online?  To quote the luminous Nancy Pelosi "Are you serious?".  And if you go in arrears you will literally be talking to a guy named Johnson Floriani or something like that.  I have actually talked to him on the phone.  Very New York.  Give me the West Coast any day.  Minus Nancy Pelosi preferably.
