Dax Future Triggers Stops, Goes Parablic, Launching Late Day Megaramp

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Presented with little comment because frankly everything is now full retard. That is the Dax; This is the Dax on low-volume, mega levitation drugs, at 9pm on a Friday in Germany, when out of nowhere someone goes on a mega buying spree in the Dax futures, and sends global risk assets, and FX pairs, surging. Is Bernanke LBOing Germany? Or is Spain due for junk downgrade and this is the ultimate bad is good trade which sends global risk assets, and FX pairs soaring to fresh record highs across the board.

 

 

DAX takes and blasts through all-time highs..

 

DAX is now up over 14% in the last 17 trading days... (an annualized 466% rate)

They are manipulating the technical traders to bring them all on the same side of the trade because they know that a lot of trader sheeps out there follow these signals. Once they will feel confortable enough they will just pull the plug and let them foot the bill for their next planned market collapse. Why? Because there is much more money to be made by luring the sheeples into the next pen and fleecing them altogether than running after one sheep.

I'm not saying it opens higher. I'm saying in the next hour after 10:00, with zero news, the market is ramped straight up multiple times, ridiculing the concept of random walk.

The entities responsible for the ramps have an interest in higher prices, and can move prices.

Trying to encourage net inflows in stocks from pension investors, and benefiting from inflated prices to sell to these suckers.

Divided check out the Yen right now. I truly believe that Ust's are being sold off hard as the JGB gets taken to the woodshed. That is sending scared fixed income money scrambling right now straight into stocks. This is real interesting. If those Japanese bonds keep getting slammed UST's will as well. Now tell me how in the hell Bernak can do anything other than print moar in that environment?

good read.  we have... for now stayed clear of crisis......no inflation, equities melting up, and stronger dollar. 

gotta focus in on those premodifiers.  now just wait until soros buys back triple the GLD holdings he cut... at sheeply discounts.  At that time, he will claim it a bargain too good to pass up.  Soros is boosting his gold mining stocks for a reason.

That's what I am getting at. I see some point very soon where Abe tries very hard to jawbone the yen into settling down. That calms down both bond markets. If it gets away from him and JGB's continue to selloff hard then everyone is finally going to take it in the ass in their bond funds.

The amazing thing is that stupid ass CNBC and their great rotation may end up actually being right since scared money seems to be running to stocks.

look at the u.s ponzi scheme today. we have a flat day yesterday, considered a ''down '' day, and now we are fucking up triple digits on fucking shit.

 

this market never pulls back, keeps going up, and its gotten to the point where we should just laugh because the more it goes up, the more enjoyable the ride down will be.

 

i hope the dow finishes up 170 today, why not, if its going to finish fucking green every day, let it inflate into a more massive bubble. ill be pissed if the dow finishes up 70 today, i want 200 today, just to inflate this gigantic size bubble more and more, and i will laugh my ass off when all these traders and hedge fund fucks lose their shirts when this thing crashes so fucking fast.

Good job, Bernank!  French bonds are a much better safe haven than ours:

 

french 10 and 30yr bond:  1.85%  and 2.87%

US 10 and 30yr bond:       1.95% and 3.17%

 

Italy's 30yr bond is at a record low 4.6%.  maybe it too will become a safe haven and yield less than our equivalent treasury.

 

What a bunch of retards we have in global power.  just like in the 1920s and 1930s.

FT says BIS warning about Qe (Yesterday) premised on diminshing returns?

Does the warning have something to do with the relentless gold selling?

"Central banks have had to "think outside the box" to address unprecedented financial instability and to provide monetary stimulus in trying times. Monetary accommodation has been critical to stabilise the financial system and the economy. But questions remain about the efficacy of such policies as long as balance sheets and structural headwinds are not more fully addressed. Monetary accommodation can only be as helpful as the balance sheet, fiscal and structural policies that accompany it. Looking ahead, central banks will continue to face daunting challenges as they navigate in uncharted waters, including how best to integrate new perspectives on the financial cycle and global spillovers into their monetary policy frameworks.

it might be too late to create one. How long does it take to round up all those fake actors?

Denuded femur guy is probably still available, and his partner, calmly relaxing in the sun with shades guy, is probably available as well.

Feifdom I mean Freedom Tower just put up the spire.  Maybe the NWO false flag of the eons gets raised there.

If market is ramping on fumes in tandem with a ramping DXY, what happens when dollar takes a dive like it usually does after these two weeks cycles? SPX 1800?

Still trying to get a clear answer.  Does the money from POMO enter the stock market on the day of the "operation" or on the "settlement day".  If anyone knows for certain I would be very grateful if you would let me know.  I wish Tyler would do more analysis on the correlation betweeen POMO and trading strategies.  It seems one of the only discernable data points that correlate in this illusion of a market!

The S&P going out at 1666 and a blow off in Europe are not at all a warning.

We're all going to die. Wait -- in the long run, we're all dead any way. I mean, we're all going to die prematurely, as we humans rush the automated machine-gun, death-dealing, dumb but lethal 'bots. It's the Western Front all over again.

Watching the 'bots trading this way is like watching a sports game played by a high speed, high volume, but not very smart team of desktop computers. They're easily fooled and manipulated -- but ZeroHedgers already knew that.

The one thing NOT mentioned here is that the DAX closed 4 1/2 houts earlier, it was NOT open....total insanity

@jubber: wrong. cash markets were closed but futures markets in europe are open till us cash markets close! check on eurex.com, it trades dax and euro stoxx futures (as well as bunds, etc)

so probably happened on just a few contracts traded with stops getting hit and volume briefly spiking. remember, this 9pm european time. cash markets are closed for some hours already and people are home, starting their weekend. nothing crazy here, just an illiquid market with stops getting triggered. happens often in fx between us close and asia open / asia close and european open...

so calm down u uninformed farmers from midland us. just stop trading financial markets if u dont understand them and do what u do best. watching tv, buying guns and hating ur government

 

stupid fucks

My point being exactly, while the US market was open the underlying GERMAN market was closed, I know the futures market was open obviously!

"HONG KONG, 18 May, 2013  – The Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange (HKMEx) announces today it has decided to voluntarily surrender the authorisation to provide automated trading services (“ATS”) granted by the Securities and Futures Commission (“the SFC”).

With immediate effect, no new orders may be placed and all open positions will be financially settled at the settlement price determined by HKMEx and its designated clearinghouse."

This is an outright default!! So someone is unwilling to make delivery?
