Lest We Forget, It's Tuesday

Tyler Durden's picture


With an hour left in the trading day and stocks surging impressively on absolutely no positive catalyst whatsoever (hawkish inflation, dismal housing data, Baghdad under attack, Ukraine terrorism) apart from higher bond yields, we thought a gentle reminder of what day of the week it is would help those looking for some sanity in the entirely rational "markets" that are not only unrigged by HFT but are also unrigged by massive insider trading...

These things probably become self-reinforcing (until they become self-destructive). I mean, if you knew it always goes up on Tuesday's, you'd go long too on Tuesdays.

It's THE LEVITATOR algo.  designed to stop short sellers from piling on.   traders get stopped out probably twice, decide the market is nuts, and stop trading, which is why the volume dies in the afternoon.

Besides the fact that today was guaranteed to be up what with it being Tuesday you also have the fact that Yellen will be goosing the market higher tomorrow with whatever she says.  Tomorrow its 100% that we go sharply higher so buy em now while its still a dip cause tomorrow you will be back to buying the fucking all time highs as we cruise past 1950 on our way to 2000.


Any idiot can see this market is going much higher.

How anyone could seriously try to defend or analyze a market that never sees any reason for a pullback as anything but manipulated is beyond me

The question remaining is how the Fed will explain themselves and what words they'll use to explain the market going higher still while the Fed controlled algos do their painting and papering
