GS is on the other side of that trade. Guaranteed! Their last trading quarter was swell because NITE fell.

It's not their fault, their judgement is Harvard MBA-compromised.  Amazing how much money people will pay just to be taught to be a fucking lemming.

Epic rise in yields yesterday while the rest of the market basically flatlined. Normally when wealth flow out of bonds, it flows into stocks and commodities, but yesterday...nothing. I've never seen that type of movement before.

It's almost like this report was released early to try and crash the market and keep yields from continuing to spike.

Take a look at that chart again:   The third most-held stock is... MSFT.    If you think GOOG hurts, just wait until the unmitigated failure that is "Surface" lands with a thud.   We haven't even begun to see tankage yet.

I have an idea.  Click the ads for all the politicians on every website in America.  Simultaneously we can save google and bankrupt every politician.

Now that's a stimulous idea I can get behind.

All you're doing is generating further revenue for Google which will be recycled back into political contributions to be spent on advertising, generating further revenue for Google...

The idea that one can bankrupt a bottomless pit? Needs work.

The press release was a fat-fingered mistaken release, based on the boilerplate and template holders still in the item. It wasn't supposed to come out until after market close.

The hedge funds and retail will be getting massive margin calls tomorrow and forced to liquidate other momo bubble stocks. The selling is just starting.

This is how the internet bubble popped – one huge miss by a momo-driven domino pricked the internet bubble.

Strange thing is the EURUSD and AUDUSD, both darlings of the QEtc pump-and-dump, went absolutely nowhere.  Just sitting there, eating a moon pie.
