Look, a bright shiny object!
Constant economic predation. Ever more reckless military acts from ever more-desperate regimes. This is the New World Order – the real one.
Subreddit in question plans to host AMA with senior Al-Qaeda propaganda figure on April 29th
From the highs this morning as European markets closed, S&P 500 futures have plunged 11.5 points. Doesn't sound like much - but this is in fact the largest intraday swing of 2013...Keep calm and BTFD.

I wonder if there is a keystroke sniffer on my computer.Everytime I place a bid on VXX, someone improves the bid by 0.0001 - and it happenes a split second before my order.
Di-Fi is still an asshole.
Diane Feinstein rubber masks for sale.
Fuck that Mao looking shemale.
NO! Yuck! :-)
Looks like the algo are pushing ES up to its VWAP.
What happens after that should reveal their bias.
You can imagine the fun we have trading in illiquid markets. Anyone want some rice futures?
It's late in the day.
Should I cover my shorts and go long?
S&P popped just enough above the multiyear trend line to sucker even more long positioins into play. It's time for the banks to shear the sheep. Stay short. we'll see 1460 soon enough but it will likely catch fore it drops though the monster gap-up from earlier this month. Just my opinion, it's your money.
Technical analysis is voodoo, yo!
TA works to the extent that other's beliefs in it cause it to be self fulfilling. If all the TA's in the world see a sell signal, they all sell - and down we go. Simple in its stupidity, but still true.
Sadly they havn't given me access to the code but with the way the algos work I would be drop dead surprised if the majority of their decision making is not based on TA. Their world is a mass of lines and trends, the nanosecond over the microsecond all the way to the level someone like me can see using a screen and a wooden ruler.
Mainly oscillator crossovers. And reading other charts, too.
Like If VIX, then...
That's absolutely false. I know people don't like to admit it but they're really just not that clever.
Technical analysis works because people do the same thing over and over and over again. We are creatures of habit and if you charted the habits, there would emerge a pattern.
Simple as that.
I need a badass mothafucka to call this bullish for me.
Are you GetZeeGold in disguise?
Just some crazy cat who posts early in the day.
since 666 this rally has rolled on and on-- unbelieved, refuted and denied. even a 30% correction would leave the dooms-dayers well underwater as equity players. luckily zirp also pushes up pm's, because the rationale of a stock crash to the benefit of pm's has not materialized. companies are doing well.....the average joe is struggling......the new normal.
Derek, the soon-to-be-way-underwater "stacker" took a nice bath today, to the tune of minus one-percent.
Keep stacking! It's still shiny!
"the rationale of a stock crash to the benefit of pm's has not materialized"
You don't say...
Derek, I know you've been conditioned by your environment - But, could you please read what you wrote, again.
See, Companies CAN'T do "really well" while the "average joe" isn't! For the record, unless you agree don't bother responding.
Everything that is doing really well, is either being subsidized by the Govt. or the Fed...Period! You are the ponzi stool living in the matrix.
"S&P 500 Futures Suffer Biggest Down Swing Of 2013"
Soon to be followed by the close today by the biggest up swing of 2013?
Algotards are shitting liquid.
Fuck you Getco.
Not to worry. Bernanke has gone all out and is sitting on the print button.
<Faster damn you, faster.>
So that's why silver is down.
Ask Blythe.,,I'm sure she has an answer for you.
Well as far as I'm concerned he can shove all those Federal reserve notes right up his fat ass.
Ouch! Those are NOT where you want paper cuts. :)
Or it's stuck...( the control p button..)
No sweat, they have algos
Last chance. All aboard.
Do the algos work as well in reverse?
Of course. You just instruct it that 2=1 and 1=2.
The Dip has been purchased.
S & P 2,500 here we come, bitchez
Higher volume without follow through suggests we're going down now. JMHO though.
Technical analysis is so yesterday.
The only thing you need to know is BTFD!
Must have bounced back, it's only down 2.59 currently. Dow over 13,800.
So, contrary to BTFD theeorists, what if AAPL actually "did" crash today, since 12% is not enough.
'the mercedes rotates about pollinating but another genus in the land of amazon-- where evolution parlays extinction with progress?'
Everyone remembered all of a sudden that VIX is cheap. Too cheap to pass up. AAPL is expensive and there's a glut of it on the market. Sell high and buy low. Market 101 explained in 2 sentences. Who is Ben and why does it matter what he does or if we know of him?
I'm gonna call a couple of hard, pipe-hitting niggas to go to work on the homes here with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. [to Zed] You hear me talking, hillbilly boy? I ain't through with you by a damn sight. I'm gonna get medieval on your ass.
Must keep the market going up - market downturns are reserved for forcing Republicans to pass legislation they don't want to. Market MUST move up until the debt ceiling crisis in March, THEN it can be allowed to "mini-crash" lower to force a debt ceiling increase.... This stuff is EASY to see through.
They decided to kick the can till May 19th. We're gonna sound like the EU on this topic. Check back in 2015 for an update.
OK - that must give the Dow sufficient time to hit the magic 18,000 between now and then....
we are now living a fairytale life that traders of old (pre 2007) would not recognize....they would think they were trippin'
Ivan Pavlov didn't have shit on Ben and his printing press.
Wow ALL of 2013 so far?? The whole 24 days? Looks like all is well, every past such drop only resulted in a further new high.
Anyway, DOW is charging ahead now only a few hundred points from all time record bubble-top highs!
North Korea said it would carry out further rocket launches and a nuclear test that would target the United States, dramatically stepping up its threats against a country it called its "sworn enemy."
They might try Davos.
Right, what's N Korea mad at us for? Aren't we the ones sending them free food all the time?
They want moar...
