All US Equity Markets Closed Monday (And Maybe Tuesday) Due To Sandy

Tyler Durden's picture


Late Updates - after a day of consultation and realization that if the algos were left alone to play then things could go a little pear-shaped - NYSE and NASDAQ will now be totally closed tomorrow:



"In consultation with other exchanges and market participants, NYSE Euronext will close its markets on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 and pending confirmation on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012’’


"We support the consensus of the markets and the regulatory community that the dangerous  conditions developing as a result of Hurricane Sandy will make it extremely difficult to ensure the safety of our people and communities, and safety must be our first priority’’


"We will work with the industry to determine the next steps in restoring trading as soon as the situation permits’’


Add to this, SIFMA's recommendation that bond markets close at midday - which is all a little moot given MTA's closure and tomorrow looks like being a busy day for the European desks...

How about we just have the equity markets open 4 days a year, after the end of each quarterly earnings report period.


Ok not really, but it would be fantastic to watch the squid shit their pants at the suggestion.

What?!?! and watch 40% of the GDP disappear because all that sliceing, dicing, trading and repackaging wasn't going on.....   not saying it's actually a PRODUCTIVE part of the economy but it IS sill a huge part of 'economic activity' - albeit akin to a hampster on a wheel

I guess the SEC felt that with DC closed, they wouldn't be able to monitor the markets for illegal behavior as they normally do each day.... lol.

Exactly chuck, our regulators are on the job 24/7 to ensure there are no improprieties taking place. Never on Wall Street, or DC, or Congress, or the Fed, or the gold and silver markets, or the govt. numbers, or....Oh never mind.

Whats the big deal if only algos are allowed to play? How is that any different than any other day? I bet if we closed on the highs on Friday the market would be open hell or high-water.

I think they closed it because the algos would be battling each other. The algos are run by the big houses to hose the muppets and competing with each other isn't fair in the "fuck the muppets game".

Therefore, the big houses, which we know from an earlier post, wanted the shit shut down. What the big houses want, they get.

End of story. Imho
