Remember, It's Tuesday

Tyler Durden's picture

Dismal data from around the world's economies - irrelevant. More promises from Europe - unimportant. Earnings misses and weather forecasts - useless. Knowing it's a Tuesday - Priceless.

The VIX is for pussies.  FAZ me...

But last Tuesday was FAIL. Or was it fixed in the last minute?

LawsofPhysics's picture

It's casino, period.  Moving the goal posts and changing the metrics for success is what your corporate oligarchs do.  It's also known as tyranny.

The only way to "win" such a game is to 1) have inside information or 2) not play.

Yeah, last Tuesday sucked, but the Flux Empire has rebounded nicely. And today will rock.


It's such a gravy train, I don't know why you guys don't join the party. Actually, I do know. It's a Dr. Phil thing. You'd rather be right than happy.

Your choice.

Hey, I sympathize, we all want the world to conform to our little worldview. And it gets us angry when it doesn't. And then we seek comfort with all those others who are also angry. But a better response is to acknowledge that our beliefs are not matching reality, and then hang out with the winners.

Simple, really.

I've been shorting VXX via puts since 2011.  I can still bitch about it being a rigged casino.

You need to watch the POMO schedule.  Last Tuesday was a NO-POMO day, which overrode the Tuesday effect.  It's really easy if you track the right variables - 1) Is there a POMO?

2) Is it Tuesday?

3) Is there a FED speech?

LawsofPhysics's picture

Sorry folks, Monday is now Tuesday.  We are shortening the week by a day as well, Thursday is now Friday...

Same point I made yesterday.

Do i still get paid for that missing day?

I think it would be awesome if this wasn't a conspiracy. Is there some simple reason tons of people would always buy on a Tuesday?

Rainman's picture

People are not buyers. They are muppets. Machines are buyers.

Al Huxley's picture

Forecasting this market is easy if you just put aside all your preconceptions and go with the real indicators -

Monday - 3 Billion POMO = up

Tuesday - Tuesday = up

Thursday - No POMO = down


It's a real time saver.

Can't believe somebody junked that.

Probably a prop trader pissed that I've made the secret system public.

Panafrican Funktron Robot's picture

There are occasional down days on POMO's and Tuesdays.  Just to fuck with the little people.

Read some of thes articles and try and put this circus into perspective.  I dont think this country has ever seen such deception and fraud permitted by these banking whores!  The media makes up whatever the hell they want to corrdinate with the game plan for the day but valuations and earnings are out the window!
