Stocks Tumble To Red As "Good News Is Bad News"

Tyler Durden's picture

Having heard the great and good declare this morning's "beat" on the headline NFP data as indicative of 1) the recovery is awesome; 2) the reason why stocks have been rallying; and 3) the recovery is awesome... it appears between a rising unemployment rate, tumbling average hourly earnings, and Gazprom's threat in Europe, stocks are taking this "good news" as "bad news." Confirmed by Hilsenrath that the taper is on - which is what bonds, gold, and the dollar appeared to be saying - the S&P 500 having spiked 10 points is now 13 points off its highs and in the red for the day...

So we're going back to sound market principles? This can't be good.

Perhaps the fed will send dollar bills to Europe to be burnt in their fireplaces and stoves, now that Gazprom is threatening to cut off their gas? That way everybody wins.

ZH was right for just few minutes stocks back up defying any reasoning for them going down... So what is the half life of ZH being right? Don't get me wrong I agree with everything ZERO HEDGE says but that doesn't make them or me right on the markets

Bitcoin very stable and good at $630.00.

Hey Fonestar. Where in the USA can you buy Bitcoins? I mean where to buy without paying an outrageous fee and going through some really unscrupulous looking website where you don't know if your money will disappear the second you hit the send button?

Just wondering how to buy them for the going price inside the US.

fonestar's picture

You can get them at like fonestar does, but like gold and silver coins you're not going to get them at "spot" prices.

MillionDollarBoner_'s picture

Eeerrrr...just slightly longer than foney-star being right with Shitcoin being unstable and ungood at $620 ;o)

fonestar's picture

Nope... $625 now fuckhead.  If you want to try and spread fake bullshit, fonestar will be happy to interject reality for you.

-50 bucks for the day fuckhead

stellar performance once more

fonestar's picture

Except it is not down $50 for the day.  It was $643 yesterday.  Nice try loser.

frenzic's picture

Pick and choose your exchange. Sure.

It was 670 on stamp. We have gone up a few bucks since my comment but hey it's very stable isn't it.

It's doubleplusgood.

Downvote proof. Spread some more disinformation while you are at it. Your time is about up douchebag. Oh well you don't need me to go down in flames.

ZH doesn't call the direction of the markets as far as I can see. Most here have not been calling for the market to tank. They simply shed light on the real truths behind the economy. They are also guilty of overstating the negative case at times.

Unfortunately, no ... we're not.

BUY BUY BUY!!!.  ZH picks the bottom, again, with another "stocks selloff" article.

Ness.'s picture

Sorry my little red arrow friends - you were warned.  

gjp's picture

I'm with you Ness, the ZH bottom-calling post is almost 100% reliable.  So much so that Kevin Henry must be timing his interventions accordingly ... you would think a conspiracy theory like that would get more positive reception here.

soopy's picture'll give away the secret.

ZH is an excellent news outlet, but completely biased.   However, to go 'all in' on one asset group usually is a very bumpy ride....and ZH may not survive choosing that message.

The whole momo sector is going through a correction. This way Dick Fisher can declare in a few weeks that valuations have come back in line with reality...this with the S&P still sniffing 1900....

that's nothing like copper.

Interpol is already issuing out all the arrest warrants for these clowns. There might be a bunch of Americans on the list too.

"bad news is good news until good news is bad news."

I think I understand now. "Cash is King"...interest rates on savings should rise and rise quite nicely here. I still haven't pulled my bond bet yet because if the EU "massively counter attacks Mother Russia" that opens up the Gates of Muscovy.

The KGB Colonel has some explaining to do.

I suspect something is in the works, something unexpectedly bad. We were having a good time till the disturbance in the force.

I'm going to fade this article... total contrary indicator.  Almost like Cramer was during 2006 and 2007.  I made a fortune fading that idiot back then

Just light green. Did not you get the memo?

Huh ? Went to the bathroom for 5 minutes & the stock 'market' also took a dump ? Should really take the iPhone with me in there.

Remember when the media said we needed to add 350k jobs a month to be healthy. That 400k signals strong job growth. Remember when they used to say we need at least 225k just to keep up with population growth.

Now like earnings all that matters is that the number beats or misses the arbitrary prediction of investment banks.

Stocks cheer a number that is barely over half the number needed to keep up with population growth, and a number that is pure bullshit anyway. Every month last year the real number showed fewer people working during the month than the prior year. Real world job losses, not gains. People that did go to work did so because benefits were cut, taking any job at the lowest pay just to get money.

Aaaaaaaaand it's back up again.

You idiot!!   What crap!  Have you never heard of the Plunge Protection Team?  Just look at the graph now.  What the hell did you expect would happen.   Look at the price of the metals (except copper).   The manipulators are always at work.  I pray for the collapse.

Bitcoin founder denies to be the bitcoin founder.

Dorian S. Nakamoto, the man that Newsweek claims is the founder of Bitcoin, denies he had anything to do with it and says he had never even heard of the digital currency until his son told him he had been contacted by a reporter three weeks ago.
