Market Breaks Again

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with no comment - but come on!!!


BATS has declared self-help against another market center, or is actively investigating an issue. AAPL, GOOG, etc. all dead...



BATS System Status Update - UTP SIP Issues January 03, 2013 13:39:57

Please be advised that BATS is currently investigating issues sending and receiving quotes to and from the UTP SIP. BATS is communicating with the UTP SIP as they work to resolve the issue. Will advise once UTP SIP issues are resolved.

And via Nanex:

The stunning charts below show the gradual fading of exchanges (the difering colors from left to right as we entered the 14 minute outage)...

and then the surges of trades from each exchange as they opened...

Maybe they pulled a CME and had some test systems cross to production?

Good times, good times.

This is a no sale market, only BUY.

If you spot a seller, Please report him/her to your nearest Homeland security agent so they can be processed and shipped to there local FEMA camp for reeducation

As usual, I missed something in translation, Tyler...

Why is a BAT SHIT quote suddenly a problem?

Fuck you Bernanke!

The Bernank won't be very pleased.

Another bearish call by ZH - I will be adding more calls on all my longs this market is about to explode into all time highs on Obama's black voodoo magic.

"Stale Data"???  How many more freakin' euphisims can we make up here in the financial/bankster/criminal enterprise?  "Vaporized Revenues"?

MsCreant's picture

HFT = High Freakout Trading

All data is bad data on the NYSE, bitches.

kaiserhoff's picture

In the old days, they called market manipulation "painting a picture," and people went to prison for that shit.  Can you imagine?   Rule of law..., what a concept.

Matt's picture

Fortunately, an algorithm is not yet legally a person, so they cannot be prosecuted.

kaiserhoff's picture

All too true Matt, but what if a junk yard dog auditor just did what would first occur to him..., follow the money?

Matt's picture

Well, that depends on if the dog is owned by one person (a private citizen) or another person (a corporation).

Also, depending on jurisdiction, the dog may be euthanized, taken in to the SPCA, or nothing. Same with an algorithm. Oops. bad algo, you are getting turned off and debugged before you get let back outside.

All your data are belong to us.

The market is broken. Only my plan will fix it.

Man is sinful. Only my plan will fix him.

Say amen!

Do you think Fidel is either a liberarian or christian?

Vampyroteuthis infernalis's picture

"liberarian" I doubt Fidel reads too much.

LFMayor's picture

I bet he has a subscription to Jugs.

Huh?  Silver is down...everything should be just fine.

Must be all the algos rotating into the anti-Tilson HLF play.

It just keeps getting better for Bats. Skynet is weeding out the weak links.

So are they saying someone was trying to sell?


MsCreant's picture

We will call the movie "Escape from Manhattan."

There’s a FEMA camp for you terrorist trying to sell stock

"Daddy, why are we in this cell? And, what's an ask? Is that a bad thing?"

STALE..... Pretty much sums it up

Say What Again's picture

Look at the the Tick data from NASD ($TIKQ)

On my data feed, it went flatline from 13:36 to 13:51

Unprepared's picture

Everytime I talk myself into re-entering this market for few plays I'm reminded by these stories that my money would constantly be few code lines aways from being quaranteened and then corzined.

Say What Again's picture

How do I embed a jpg file in a post?

Dr. Engali's picture

You can't. There are only a select few who have that capability.

NotApplicable's picture

Hey! We're all equal here. Just some more than others.

Say What Again's picture

I noticed that there is a "link" icon in the editing tools, but its grayed out for me.

I wanted to post a chart showing tick data (in seconds), but oh well...

Disenchanted's picture

Put it on a photo sharing site and post the link.

about the best you can do here...unless you become one of the 'special ones'

Sorry, off topic, but here we go again.

Remember the argument that Switzerland doesn't have any gun control and everyone has a gun and they have the lowest gun crime rate? 

It seems TPTB are reading the blogs.  Course of action:  same M.O.: The suspect was unemployed and had been receiving psychiatric care since at least 2005, when he was first admitted to a psychiatric hospital, and was under the care of the cantonal agency for the disabled, Seppey said.

This is really getting too predictable.

At least the Swiss citizens get it: 

Many in Switzerland believe that distributing guns to households helped dissuade a Nazi invasion during World War II.

"This is part of Switzerland's self-defense, where the entire army can be mobilized in 24 hours, said Daniel Warner of the Geneva Center for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces. "I don't think (the latest shooting) is going to cause a change in attitude here."

U4 eee aaa's picture


Mexico has gun control right? That usually ends the argument for me

The Joker's picture

I mean really.  Public shootings by psychotic "lone" gunmen are becoming more predictable than the market.  Too bad you can't go long on them, you'd make a killing.

Hey, I'll bet if you know the right people, goldman will set up a contract for you.

If there is money to be made.......

Theosebes Goodfellow's picture

Ouch. OUCH!!!! Stop it, that hurt.

Freddie's picture

Target shooting is also a national past time and the Swiss make good and very accurate guns.  SIGs are about as accurate as you can get.

Trying to invade Switzerland would be like invading a country filled with sharpshooters.  Bad move.

On the flip side - America has about 5 million licensed hunters in just 5 states.  How many have scoped .308 rifles? 


Aurora Ex Machina's picture

Always pay attention to their ages; A lot of transitionals [1978-1982] getting the crazy-time-jag in the last couple of years, in the European model.


Just sayin'

Market Breaks Again


which I interpret as:


Rigged Casino Loses the Plot Again

Shell Game's picture

'Market Breaks Again'


My interpretation is silver and gold get taken to the woodshed {again}.  Everything else.....BTMFD you idiots {again}.

Mad Mohel's picture

That MOTHAFAKA!  This is a sick fucking joke now, except it's not.

Doomer's picture

APPL really went batty about 2:08.  Will be interesting to see if NANEX takes a look.


Edit:  Once again, somebody really wants to pay $2-$3 above the best offer.  Weird.
