Rumor Ramp Reverses Rout

Tyler Durden's picture

We saw what happened yesterday when the unknowable vote went exactly as everyone expected - the supposedly totally-priced-in equity market dumped. Today, the rumor is that a deal is on the cards and sure enough S&P 500 futures ramp almost 20 points. Interestingly, this ramp has stopped just as Gold and stocks have recoupled relative to each other on the week. Of course, once the rumor is flatly denied or rejected, we would expect little to no selling pressure in this broken market because there is always hope...

The last 3 times the S&P got back to even with gold, it sold off relatively...


as is clear here...

I wonder if algos could be influenced by prnewswire releases.

Fucking monkeys.

Long live fraud and the corrupt Obama Aministration.

We're past the point of no return and algos and momo still acting as though any action could save it.

Trading algos react to headlines and headline-writing algos react to trading.  Nice and convenient, internally coherent and reality does not have to be factored in.

whens the rumor that bernake and bullard were killed and obama has been impeached? im waiting for that rumor

therover's picture

Yeah, who ( better word is what) codes that algo ?

Maybe there is a coding algo, that writes the 'headline' , which in turn sparks the 'trading' algo, which then tanks the market based on Big Ben's demise and Barry's impeachment headline.

Oh man, my head hurts.

Ben needs to print a lot more if he ever wants to push through S&P 1565......if he does gold will lead the way.

Tsar Pointless's picture

Ben has not yet begun to print.

Eventually, helicopters will be put into use.

Boundless bullshit baffles, bitchez.

The 'deal' news is for the HFTs to war against each other until only few are left.


Real traders are gone by now. Primary Dealers own everything.

Re-couple, you say ?   Like Bernanky's small, rubbery penis up our "collective" asses !      Dennis Rodman pleads with Norkoms to send Norkom tutors to inner city black schools .... to teach disciplne !

Everybody knows....

'A 'deal' is in the cards'....well you know what that means, lube up and bend over america!

I wonder how much payroll taxes will be increased to make this 'deal', another 3% at least? Nevermind the added trillions in debt, that's nothing as long as stawks are up.

Spot if a "deal" can fix the mess! 


Most western nations are completely bankrupt AND continue to spend with borrowed money from their friendly central bankers....AND we continue to believe that these same governments can keep all the promises for social welfare for all, guarantee all new debts to buy houses, cars, student loans etc etc etc.


The only deal that will work is a big reset (revolution) led by enlightened men.  Fat chance of that.

If you ain't got no job, you ain't be carin' bout no payroll tax! 

Now if there was to be implemented a Parolee Tax, that's a different story.....the Baryy O's supporters would be up in arms over that. They might have to vote 6 times (again) to knock that down.

Do not be fooled.

A person drowing in a river will try to hang on to anything, even his own friend. Just today news here in Toronto that a canadian drowned in Cuba along with a cuban trying to save him.


Do not be fooled.

They managed to bring gold back to $1,575/oz, thanks to the 10am slam down... I chuckled at Gartman when he wrote today that the margin clerks are growing weary of their (i.e. gold bugs) excuses....Margin clerks on gold bugs???? Gold bugs hold physical, unlevered gold! What a motherfucker this guy is!

SheepDog-One's picture

Can't have clerks growing weary now, can we!

I still like my " Unicorns blowing rainbows out their ass" headline better. "while snorting Brahms and whinnying Thaichovsky" as well apparently. Listen "deflations are marked by GENERALIZED price declines." we've had probably the biggest asset inflation in history burst by the Fed (for a second time in lest than five years i might add--both times with the same guy in charge) should not come as a surprise that gold is struggling here. "this time is different" in that it may be impossible to have an asset inflation under QE. I'm still sticking by my view that we may get a "print" of "1 dollar chickens already cooked"...and that's a hard way to pay down trillion dollar deficits.

Mark123's picture

Tell me more of this plan "1 dollar chickens already cooked".....Maxine W should be briefed.

My comment that got voted down this am:

"We're so use to seeing green that now we consider a -60pt down on the DOW futures a bad morning when it's at 14K?

Based on the past several years and this is friday the day remains low volume and closes flat or a throwing stone on either side of zero.

One day that will change id laugh my ass off if it came out of the blue like today but im just calling it like it's been."

I do more than just run my mouth around here.

Operation German Gold: Next few years, gold price will be Up&Down very quickly in very short period of time. Only this way, fed can get enough physical golds to return to German.
