    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Google Trading Resumes At $687

Tyler Durden's picture


After a 2.5 hours halt, GOOG just reopened at $687 from its pre-halt close at $687.30 (from $755.40 close yesterday). QQQs implied an open around $650! Please note that $711 is VWAP - the algos will be looking for that...


and the chaos of algos looking to lift us back to VWAP - Via NANEX - the first minute of GOOG rading resumption: 10,135 quotes; 3,169 trades!!

PPT is on the scene, nothing to see here, move along.  These aren't the earnings you're looking for.

It was only a 23% miss on operating income from one of the largest market cap tickers in the world. Let's not blow it out of proportion.

Popping up.  Google and their accounting firm must be buying like crazy.  As with what we saw with FB, some shit just doesn't float.

Word is that goog will begin making snowmobiles like Polaris Industries that saw record sales during the most snowless winter in modern memory

All day long on different threads here at ZH. Polaris. Polaris. We get it. But this is not the forum for corporate shills. Try Bizwire.

I'll bite.  So what exactly compelled consumers to spend money on snowmobiles when there was no snow?  Were they afraid they would sell out next year?

They took the halt time to rustle up buyers to keep it afloat.

No doubt the red phone at the NY Fed was ringing.

It wasn't like there was a mistake or anything, just an early release.

Halting the stock makes the market look more rigged, not less.

Do they think halting inspires confidence?

It means you can't get out.
