Cliff-On; Risk-Off

Tyler Durden's picture


Headline GDP better than expected (but ugly underneath); claims weak (moar QE); pending home sales (beat - confirmation bias). All is well, right? Stocks surged up to their highs of the day and Pisani proclaimed a deal is close (apparently). And then, one politician uttered those terrifying words:


and stocks dive almost instantaneously on large volume (even as most clueless algos google the name and most get hits of a certain 1980s rock band)... happy trading until 1130ET when Boehner will host a press conference.



Retesting back up to VWAP now as we all await Boehner's speech at 1130ET

added to spx 1403

black friday shorts...RODE since then...was thinking about covering yesterday when spx @ 1385....but didn't, that's ok...i didn't know boehner was about to speak, until HOURS after he spoke...LOL !!! that's ok... that's what happens when you enjoy life, = you don't watch casino every second, or hour.

next week spx sub 1350 = cover then !!! OR IF your stupid cover now = AT THE TOP OF THE DEAD CAT BOUNCE !!

Technical signals point to this move as the top - especially if we end today lower than the close. That would set us up for some downside action tomorrow and next week. Gravestone doji's, shooting stars, up to 50 dma, overbought conditions... everything technical is pointing lower from here. But who knows - the market is rigged.....$INDU&p=D&yr=0&mn=3&dy=0&id=p44589035528

As we have often seen over the last few years neither technicals nor fundamentals matter until and unless "the hand" wants them to matter.

It doesn't matter who "boehners" it. These fuckers on both sides are already going to raise the debt ceiling, so what is the point of these "fiscal cliff" talks other than goose Twitter throughput and provide fodder for the algos.

Dirty Muppet Laundry



"Stocks" get their misdirection from the daily empty muse
Just give 'em something, something they can use
HFT-algobots love it when Muppets lose,
They love Reid-Boehner-Zedbama laundry


Limp Reid 'em when they're up
Boehner 'em when they're down
Limp Reid 'em when they're up
Boehner 'em when they're down
Then Zedbama them all around

Q: What does the "Fiscal Cliff" crisis have in common with 9/11 and the 2008 financial crisis?

A: There is a plan in place before the even occurs, and the politicians will have written/read NONE of it.

9/11=Patriot Act I & II

2008 financial crisis=TARP

"Fiscal Cliff"=???

As always, we, the sheeple, will be the last to know.
