Euronext Breaks, Again

Tyler Durden's picture

Ealier today, around the time the US market opened sharply lower despite the attempt to send it soaring with the traditional and well-expected USDJPY ramp, the Euronext exchange... broke.


Shortly thereafter this initial "issue" was fixed... Only for the Euronext to break again moments ago.


We find it somewhat odd how these market "breaks" seem to only happen on sharp downdays.

must be the "weather".  Did it snow somewhere on the planet at some time?

Fucking MS-DOS 5.1 machines - Euronext needs to upgrade to MS-DOS 5.2 and get some spray cleaner to clean the dinosaur shit off their system cabinets.

It's stable as hell! The same few people make money every single day. When things take a turn, they "break" the system.

"need more time to sort out why the aglo's aren't going as planned."

Should be interesting to see if there really is a full fledged Russian invasion of Ukraine "to defend the interests of the Moldovans." On the good side no one can claim surprise. On the bad side we're probably looking at a huge flight to safety (in the form of say....the default of the State of Illinois) should the policy be one of simply "doing nothing."

"Warrants and Certificates" have been experiencing difficulties since 2008 at least, not to mention:  Bondholder Rights, Deeds, Contracts, Corzinable Assets, and Amendments to the Constitution.

Statistically, the breaks are not randomly distributed between up and down days.

Well, if this is their last tool, we will see market breaks lasting several days during 2014.
