And Now Market Tumbles, As News Of Ukraine Deaths Spook Algos

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Despite the best efforts of the straight-line panic buying algos on a Tuesday, it seems flashing red headlines of dreadful escalations in Ukraine (more deaths), from Bloomberg:

  • 11 REPORTED DEAD DURING UKRAINIAN OPERATION IN KRAMATORSK: RT
  • UKRAINE GOVT: RUSSIAN 45TH AIRBORNE IN SLOVYANSK, KRAMATORSK

...and USDJPY tagging 102 again (of course) were enough to spark the manic idiocy of markets from buy-buy-buy to sell-it-all-Mortimer... So much for yesterday's "see it's all good now" ripfest... The Russell 2000 is back at yesterday's lows and NASDAQ is back under 4000.

 

 

Wondering why?

 

"Fun-durr-mentals"

However, there is still hope:  

  • RUSSIAN PM MEDVEDEV SAYS HE HOPES UKRAINE AUTHORITIES HAVE "ENOUGH BRAINS" TO PREVENT ESCALATION OF CONFLICT

If by Ukraine authorities he means the CIA, he is out of luck.

"Ukraine Authorities"

There's an oxymoron if I ever saw one! lol

The hapless muppets in Kiev have no authority.

The whole show is being run from the Pentagon.

That's why the warmongering puppetmaster-in-chief, John Brennan, paid a visit to Kiev recently: -to pull some strings.

So with friday being a holiday, it's not 'actually' Tuesday. Algos may think it's Wednesday?

I'm so confused.

I'm half way expecting a release of a Brennan phone call with Brennan saying some very candid/stupid things.

Reminds of 2009 when the DOW would open up 500 and close down 700 on the same day.  Then it would repeat variations of that every day for a week.

Gold slammed lower before civil war started and is now climbing as civil war commences... sounds about like what they would do.

Since 2009, HFT technology has advanced rapidly.  So the Fed is able to levitate markets far more effectively than in 2009. And slam gold down when needed in a microsecond.  No buoyant stock market in the US means not enough money to sustain the empire of 900 US military bases in 130 countries:

No more A-10s. Therefore, a good ground attack plane.

The A-10 was a comparatively simple aircraft.  When they started designing it, they said, "Hmmm, we have this big-ass gun, and we want an aircraft that can take a beating and still get the pilot back home alive.  Get to it!"
