Market Breaks Again As Stocks R Through Y Unavailable For Trading

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Someone must have sold at least one share of a stock between R and Y. Ergo: market breaks. Luckily, all is well with stocks A through Q (and Z of course) - zombified ponzi participants can just keep on buying those full bore.

CNBC spin: "pent up money on the sidelines demand for stocks R through Y"

All the bots went to the next available letter, hence Zillow (Z) is up 10% today.

What;’s the big deal?

Back in the day, guys on the floor with names starting in the letters R-Y simultaneously got laryngitis all the time.

PRLB: Proto Labs Inc. -- UP 23.69%

PRO:  PROS Holdings, Inc. -- UP 19.79%

AAPL: Crapple -- UP 0.47%

If AAPL is up, everything in the kingdom is good (except my grammar).

Actually. It's true.

 

There's not much left to trade because primary dealers and other major banks own everything.

 

That's the death bed for HFT. QEs are the curse for HFT.

QE's are the death knell for the whole industry.

They will settle in at some numbers....call it 2.25% on the 10yr. $1,500 gold....1.33 Euro/USD etc....

They will leave them there. They will gently ping the indexes up and up with a small correction here an there to try to make it look like an actual market. Grab yourselves some index etf's and go to sleep. The only enjoyment people on here will get will be watching banks shedding their commodities/equities desks.

Yet another reason why the market is horrible broke. A 'market' with 10 billionaires trading amongst themselves is really more a betting game among friends than a real market. It takes more than lots of fiat money to make a market. It takes MANY REAL PLAYERS.

Now you get it; the CBS are now out to CHILL the PD market; fasten the arrival to the aysmptote, and then control the whole shooting match from central bank plays.

Today the PDs like Jamie hold the financial WMD; tomorrow it'll ONLY be the CBs.

Banks will be obliged to do what CBs say. State oligarchs now have upper hand. And the Squid is on BOTH teams.

Lol, now ain't that just cute????
