Google Implodes But Dow Ramps To Unchanged To Preserve Confidence

Tyler Durden's picture

ICYMI - GOOG -8.1% weighed heavy on the entire tech sector which really needed little help after IBM and INTC's earlier disappointments. But while there was a caTECHstrophe there, when GOOG re-opened, algos ran wild and ramped S&P futures all the way back up to VWAP and GOOG made a valiant attempt to reach that mystical level also. But we should not fear, for reading too much into the fact that three of the world's largest tech companies are doing poorly is no reason to not BTFD and so it is that the Dow Industrials and S&P closed only marginally lower and Dow Transports had a green day (never seeing red). USD strength in the afternoon - as GOOG scared - pushed commodities down with silver doing worst and gold -0.77% on the week. Despite general equity weakness, Treasury yields limped higher in the afternoon now up around 17bps on the week. Oil round-tripped after dumping into the US open as weak macro data hit and then resurging on news that the Keystone pipeline would be closed to a few days due to 'anomaly'. VIX ended unch at around 15%. S&P futures are fading off VWAP after-hours.


On the week, NDX is the worst performer and Trannies the best...


S&P futures ramped to VWAP in the last hour or so as GOOG reopened...

Tech is the worst of the week (AAPL -1.9% today and GOOG -8.1%) - but still green as Materials are up over 4%...


Commodities dropped as USD strengthened in the afternoon - and Oil roundtripped on demand and then supply concerns...


and here is GOOG - with the after-hours target marked in bright red!

CNBC News today: "A study from American Express Publishing and Harrison Group shows that holiday spending will grow 33.5 percent among the top one percent of earners this Christmas, to $3.4 billion. The average family in the top 10 percent of Americans will spend more than $1,600 on gifts this season."

So you got that.  You WILL Spend more and the 1% is spending as much more as they can...

As you were sheeple.

Over 12 million shares traded today in Google, ten day average is a little over 2 million per day.

It's just a small crack and leak in the dam.  I'm fairly certain a team of Chernobyl technicians will be all over this.

Chernobyl technicians maybe, but Reggie Middleton, not a chance

in fact when it comes to bad news about GOOfball, Reggies rose tinted specs are so rosey you'd swear he was seeing red

The life of hard knocks Reggie, better get used to them being a GOO shill

Just sold all my gold. These tech earnings misses are not bullish for PMs. I did buy the dip in GOOG. And IBM. And INTC. And MSFT.

I put all my maples and eagles on Craigslist for $1,000 an ounce. I did hedge some of the proceeds and bought GLD puts.

What the masses will start thinking:

Must preserve 401K by withdrawing funds while they are still there. Then purchase PMs for retirement.

I can't wait to see what form the 'bad news' comes in one of these mornings where we head down -15% for the day.

More layoffs coming from tech companies. Right after the election. Obama has to win so no layoffs until then.

DXY put in a buy signal on the H-4  chart. It's currently @ the 38.2% fibi of this recent move down from 80.2-78.92. There may some slight variances from chart to chart in those numbers.

Apparently it really is different this time.

Think of how much crap the FED has to buy to keep Obama in office. It will be a blood bath after the elections.
