Goldman's End Of Day Recap, Or Crossing Into The Twilight Rabbit Hole Zone

Tyler Durden's picture

When Goldman "explains" the intraday 150 point Dow Jones swing citing a "nouveau press" article, with the subsequent retraction of the same article (on Twitter, of all places) by its own author explaining the snapback, it is unclear if one must laugh, cry, or just lock the door on the way out.

From Goldman's S&T desk:

The power of the press (and the nouveau press)! Following a very solid open, stocks maintain their early gains until FT Harding hits the tape with an article suggesting a signal from Bernanke this Wednesday that the taper was drawing near – in contrast to the more dovish Hilsenrath last week. Stocks drop nearly a percent. Then via Twitter Harding casts doubt on his own predictions and more than half of those losses are reversed. The price action just reinforces how important the FOMC Wednesday will be.

Meanwhile, on the other side:

... the great rotation awaits:

But at least the exit is in sight:

If you only zoom in....

No one is turning off the money machine.  The correction will have to come from something else.

Poor souless HFT-bots, totally incapable of perceiving sarcasm.

The Onion might change the world after all.

And no one in finance world questions whether one man having so much influence over so much "wealth" is a good thing.

Until it all goes horribly wrong and then everyone in the finance world will be shocked that it is run by one man.

Those assholes will say and do anything to make sure their newly created out of thin air "wealth" stays legitimate.

This bit of truth should be all you need to understand why they would be motivated to deceive anyone.

Volume, Volume, Volume.  Anything to churn and create volume.  Volume is oxygen to the street.

"buy on the rumor...sell on the fact." again. that's what's coming Wednesday...same as the last my view. The only betting going on will be where the market closes. "stock traders and Very Large Investors/hedge funs" are/have been running this thing for many years now. i see nothing to alter that as of yet. Japan is in correction mode now...i would ignore it. "all eyes on the traders" and the battle between Hong Kong vs New York in the New Media wars that have suddenly erupted "with that NSA kid in the middle of it all." the President's poll numbers have tanked, the war thing is looking crazy, cat's and dogs living together. the end of the world as we know it. "it's popcorn time."

     Did you do your homework? I clearly stated on Friday that there would be a squeeze in usd/jpy.(thats over)

   I know that you are asking what my trade is. I'm mostly FLAT & Hedged. I think that most of the usd selling over the last 30 days has priced in a Fed. move.

   If. the Fed. keeps the juice flowing, I expect a move in commodites, and based currencies. if the Fed. (cold day in hell) tapers, I expect a sell off and {healthy rebalance}.

  Either scenario suggests a selloff.

Wow what beautiful graphics. Sure is a nice stable, sensible "market", alright. Whoever is running this thing needs an adult in the room with them.

There was NO correction. 

Skynet isn't that smart, you follow FX correlation that being EUR bids, YEN selling and major USD dumps for BTFD.  Japan's volatility was another country (China) messing with it's bond market an economic warfare hit.  Proof?  Sure.  JGB bonds, held mostly by Japan, start selling hard?  All you need is selling from 9% holdings and you get major yield spikes  - leads on to a stock sell off.  It was a precision hit and admirably done. 

But NYFed knows the FX correlation to a T, will maintain EUR supports and keep Wall street juiced on USD sell offs.  Also will assist Japan in Yen devaluation by dumping Yen onto it's books and swapping with USDs.  Anything to keep Wall Street and the pensions funds buying up stocks = the global Crony Capo trade. 

It's a chess game played by idiots.     A predicable pattern is emerging.

   Anyone trading the euro, should be shot in the head, and FUCKED in the bullet hole!

  The only reason cable is overbought, is because of GILT yields. (remember last week early morning(wednesday), I mentioned 10year GILT yields spiked)  Fast cash ran to gbp in front of G-8 and the Fed.

The EUR is owned by the ECB and the Fed.  So you can't trade against them, I seen so many shorts killed trying to short under 1.30 (central bank supports). Unless you have a HFT scalp program...otherwise forget it.  Yes cable and AUD, YEN on volatility.  The DXY has been a great trade, dip buys, on Asian/China/South American buying and then the CB cartel selling.  Fat range. 

I hope Scorsese mentions (subtext or something) in his new movie The Wolf of Wall Street, the ONLY reason why we have a market as we have now, is because we bailed out Wall Street and the Fed became a governing body sideswiping Obama lameness etc.  Lenin would be smiling from his rotten corpse at all this.  There is no free market anymore.
