Dow Jones Industrial Average Celebrates "Four More Years" With Biggest Drop In A Year

Tyler Durden's picture


It seems like only last night everyone was celebrating more hope, if not much change. Now comes the hangover. The Dow Jones intraday drop is now 2.23% (and rising), greater than the biggest drop so far in 2012 record on June 1. The last time the market plunged as much: literally one year ago, or November 9, 2011. Sadly, it appears that one can't have their Dow Jones Industrial Average and redistribute it too.

And if the surge in vol the last time we had moves of this magnitude is any indication, we can solmenly say that the world's most overrated job for the next 2 months (and 4 years) will be the Chief Redemption Officer, at any hedge fund.


and the S&P futures are at a critical level...below Draghi's Elbow...

Seeing this as a special message of "fuck you" to Obama, I can't help but feel it's my patriotic duty to participate.  Don't get me wrong, I'd do the same for Romney, but Obama's just that much douchier which makes it even more satisfying.  What a great day in the (fake) market!

... special message of "fuck you" to Obama ...

I thought it was long expected that the market was being artificially propped up to help Obama get re-elected.  And, equally expected, if Obama was re-elected, the market would be allowed to seek true price discoverey beginning the day after the election.  To the extent that such analysis was/is true, how can the market being allowed to seek its true level be a "fuck you" to Obama?

I agree with your logic sir.  but let me have my fucking moment, okay?  The occassional indulgence in delusion greatly abets the effort of maintaining sanity.

The usual pundits can get back to Obama bashing, Congress gridlock, and liberal hyping.  The status quo has been maintained.  I'm doing as I did previous to the election: stacking the metal.

Most folks don't actually read comments; they just look for key words.  Then they cast a "vote" on the comment.   All I said was that the world (especially the media) can kiss my fuzzy coon butt -- I'm doing what I always did.

Seeing this as a special message to Obama:

You may be right.  Or it could just be some profit taking after the big Market runup for several months prior to the election.

The Banker Boys are happy regardless.  Guaranteed 4 more years of tweaking the ponzi and scamming what is left of the middle class.

Look for a big runup at the end of this week or the start of next week when the algos mysteriously change moods and find something to be happy about.

Wait! What happened to gold rising to $5000 if Obama wins? Did I miss something? Oh, that's right. All the markets are rigged but somehow you all believe the gold market will act on natural forces. Silly bastards! If gold is ever valued at >$10,000 an ounce, there won't be any organized market to trade it. You will be buying beans from a guy by candlelight and settling up with a small scale. Be careful what you wish for!
