Twitter Enters Bear Market

Tyler Durden's picture




 

To the algo that bought TWTR at $71.92 2 hours ago, and 34% higher - 01000110 01010101 01000011 01001011 01011001 01001111 01010101 00100001

 

 

For the 4th time in its brief existence, the social media must-have stock has entered a bear market (greater than 20% correction from a high).

 

However, the plunge from the after-hours peak (at $71.92) this time is the largest peak-to-trough drop (to $53.82 for now) since the IPO at 25%...

SKYNET went online 1997, funny GOOGLE went online 1997,

GOOGLE was first round funded by PERKINS/ZELL back in the early 1990's by NSA/CIA.

Last month GOOGLE bought "BOSTON ROBOTICS", the makers of TERMINATOR Life-Size POLICE robots, just like on Elysium.

*

SKYNET employees work in the BAY-AHREA but like to sleep in San Franciso, where they can wine and dine, and enjoy their $500k salarys in style. Funny if the 'resistance' sent somebody in the future to come back and take out those GOOGLE BUSES?

Apple has been doing shuttles for a while now, from SF and Santa Cruz. One of my homies lived in SC for a while and shuttled in. Never heard a peep from the SF crowd about Apple, but I can definitely see the iEnamored peoples opposing Googlestan.

I say let them fight it out and we wait in the bushes to take out whatever* is left.

 

* I won't dignify them as people, so whatever is appropriate.

Would I be wrong in saying "Who really cares?"  For other than the MSM's fixation on this and other i&e-Crap stocks, there's nothing left to talk about but "Uh oh?"
Or is this just me being jaded on a late Wednesday afternoon preceding the incoming rain showers?

I love the smell of fried HFT's in the morning. Smells like victory.

A good thought study would be to figure out which set of words or phrases trigger ignition rallies. Then simply load a press release with those trigger phrases along with some really negative EPS numbers. Algo speed reads the press release and buys the entire stack, only for the switch operators to realize his aim-bot just sent him under 18% by the morning bell. An ECCM for HFT's so to speak.

Onwards to the gas numbers and then the mark to magic Friday tape. NOAA talking back the gas tape today does not fit with the cold-front sattelite images going into the weekend.

You must understand that Zerohedge is to the right of Rush Limbaugh,

I despise Obama as much as the rest of you, but this story is a non-story from the wall street journal. Then ZH takes the story, and makes it sound like Obama is going to NULL&VOID the constitution. He cannot. That will be done by HILLARY-2016, for now Obama is a lame-duck. He will only blame Congress ( republicans ) for standing in is way, but he's finished. Move along and focus on HILLARY-2016. * ZH is owned by ABC-MEDIA a right-wing marketing firm for Nazi ideology in Europe. They target 'doom&gloom' idiots to sell them russian brides, and bitcoin mining hardware.

DNA is binary. There are only two pairing types: A-T and C-G.

True, but you are thinking in two dimensions.

Differentiate A-T and C-G pairing with different voltage thresholds, encode information within a differential helix, and the code geometrically expands in its storage and processing efficiency.

But yeah, this would just help the Matrix and Skynet so forget it.

No buyers. Volumeless and soon even vaporless. Anyone still long in this shit show of a market is either playing with OPMs or needs to check into a gambling rehab.

There is somethign to "Twitter"...I mean I just got a recorded message from our High School letting us know that "Confession" (gossip) accounts on Twitter are interrupting the classes and causing problems at the school.

What happend to the days of fist fights, smoking and getting stinky pinkies?

A major survey of social media users revealed that Twitter users considered themselves "sexier" and "better in bed" than user of FaceBook and other social media sites.

 

Twitter just shit the bed and doesn't look very sexy now... does it?

To the algo that bought TWTR at $71.92 2 hours ago

Send it a binary code email that says "Smart Technology = The greatest of all greater fools."

Q: What’s dumber than an algo that thinks it can purchase a $40.00 stock for $0.01?

A: An algo that manages to purchase a $40.00 stock for $0.01, then turns around a microsecond later and sells it for $0.02

This bear market stuff is all new to me.

in the 1970's & '80's-----20 % was a normal expected pullback after a good run or a surge

I was even cheaper----waiting for 30%

it seems that a bear market entry was much lower than this

I don't think I've seen an 'instant bear market' chart like that since I-bubble days.

So does this mean we are going to see the algo jumping out a window tonight or will we just see it down at the bar drowning its sorrows (or maybe it will be buying up an excess of beer stocks tomorrow)?

What does the binary expression "01000110 01010101 01000011 01001011 01011001 01001111 01010101 00100001" mean?

Pretty funny.
