Did Today's "Satan Signal" In S&P Futures Give The 'All-Clear' For Selling To Begin?

Tyler Durden's picture

Even Bob Pisani knows by now that the European Close seems to create a trend-reversal moment intraday that few machines (and even fewer humans) are willing to fight. Whether this is remnants of short-term cycles found due to POMO or just a drop in liquidity is unclear; but what is clear, it happens, and all too regularly... except today. After a notably weak start to the day, the machines were just getting revved up for the 1130ET reversal to kick in and lift the market back to VWAP when a curious thing happened... "someone" canceled-and-replaced orders for 666 contracts 26 times in the 1130ET to 1200ET period... and selling accelerated lower, no reversal, to close at the lows on heavy volume.



Thanks to the incredibly detailed work of Nanex's Eric Hunsader, we can see the 'secret' signal that only the HFTs would have been capable of seeing...

For a sense of how out of place this was, here is the quote size histogram for that period:


We are sure this is nothing... just pure coincidence that on the 4th most active trading day in history and on following a huge surge day in stocks not trusted by any other asset class, someone would send 26 separate times in a few minutes orders for 666 contracts.

Only a tin-foil-hat-wearing digital dickweed would see anything odd about that: for everyone else this is merely yet another market anomaly that is best left unmentioned.

Oh, one more thing, this all happened just after VIX 'fat-fingered' spike down and VXX volume surged, launching today's selloff.

Does it not stand to reason that if Jesus, the Christ was a Jew, so then would Satan not be a Jew?  Jus' sayin'

We live in a dualistic world. There is hot and cold, life and death, democrat and republican, etc. etc. etc. Most important, there is good (good=God) and evil. Which side are you on?

By the way, democrat and republican are NOT opposites.

Agreed on D and R.  In other news, there can only be one creator so, the God.

old naughty's picture

only one, you say...hummmmm.

There was one who wiped out all living things on the planet and decreed that humans must worshipped him and wait, until some time far into the "future", for his glorious "kingdom" to return !!!

I'd settle for J with light in his heart.

I just created a "reality", no?

Though made in God's "image," humans are imperfect. God is perfect, infinite, eternal, living, present, ineffable, invisible, holy, righteous, and unique...and used Moses to destroy pedophile, homosexual Egypt.

The Bible is an imperfect effort to "reveal" God, and America is the long awaited fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy of "Zion."

Pedophiles and the homosexuals they create, whether by a "cult of male prostitues" papal priest or Talmudic "mezizah," yet object to submission to the Creator, America's named Sovereign, in Truth and Justice alone.

N.B. The "Flood" was just the Black Sea's inundation by the Med's breaking the natural dam at the Bosphorus. Key point is the Noahic male/female lesson vs. the other side of the pond's male/male Gilgamesh (Arabic Islam) image.

What the fuck? It seems when talking theism you can string any comination of words together, sort of like the bible.

Also very curious why god botherers are so adamant that there can be only one creator of the universe. How do you know there aren't two? Maybe divinity is dualistic, like photons.

Do you people ever get sick of pulling complete and utter bullshit right out your bung holes?

new game's picture

hey, sheeple need something greater than themselve to feel whole. true leaders and artists create thoughts that don't replicate, a very few have that ability, hence the perfect flock to control. break out of the matrix of bullshit and tink for yourself, and thats why i call "its all bullshit", ha, fun, fun, fun just observing it all. lighten the fuck up, bitcheez!

Good points, iAmerican.  His infinite nature is difficult to understand with a finite mind, though tantalizing as philosophers and theologians have always demonstrated.

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

How do you know god is infinite?

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

Theists are like those dolls that repeat a set of phrases when you pull the string.

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

If god is infinite then why is there room for the earth or the sun or the solar system or the stars or the vast, vast emptiness of space. Infinite is infinte you doofuses. Inside this universe and outside this universe.

I want one of you god nuts to answer this. If the animals lined up by twos on the ark what happened to all the fucking plants. I've never know a plant to survive under water for 40 days.

I asked my 10 year old niece this question. She is trained well in the art of christianity and she said "well it must have been a miracle they survived". So I said, "So why didn't god just use a miracle to save the animals making Noah's ark redundant".

She stared blankly at me. So I said "You should have said because god works in mysterious ways".

"If god is infinite then why is there room for the earth or the sun or the solar system or the stars or the vast, vast emptiness of space. Infinite is infinte you doofuses."

Infinite means "not finite." That's what the "in" prefix means. Finite basically means countable or measurable. Why then is it so difficult for your type to understand what "God is infinite" means?

"I want one of you god nuts to answer this."

Will you also accept answers a genius who has studied the subject of religion for most of his life, and who knows and understands things you definitely do not? Or are you only accepting answers from the "God nuts"--people whom you are oh-so-certain are below your level, so that your ego can feel safe and secure in criticizing their ideas?

"If the animals lined up by twos on the ark what happened to all the fucking plants."

They died.

Thankfully, as the flood did not occur across the entire world, but only in a large region, there were plants elsewhere which were able to spread their seed and replace those which were drowned. Also, Noah brought plenty of seed on the boat with him as well.

"I asked my 10 year old niece this question. "

Maybe you should try debating with someone who is actually knowledgeable and mature enough to put you in your place. Why are you debating with 10 year olds--trying in vain to make yourself feel smarter?

dontgoforit's picture

He told me.  Our universe is infinite, too.  And there's an infinite number of infinite universes all created by an infinite God.  His power is more than we can envision.  And, it makes him, necessarily holy.  Don't be on the wrong side of eternity, BOTA.  We're all just one heartbeat away from finding out.

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

You live in fear, this is a terrible way to spend your life. Of course you understand no other reality so in that sense it's probably not that bad.

If your God is truly infinite then to God you are truly infinitesimal. So why bother.

"You live in fear, this is a terrible way to spend your life."

You are a fool, who makes foolish assumptions.

No room for a committee when a point one-trillionth the diameter of a proton MIRACULOUSLY became the "present" universe in 10^-36 seconds.

Only the Creator of the universe is the named Sovereign of America, Isaiah's actual prophesied "Israel," "Zion," in Truth, Justice, Reason, and Honor.

The false Jew Talmuds' Synagogue of Satan, and pedophile papists have been a satanic "engine for enslaving mankind" for thousands of years: Read America's Founder and Prophet on the subject.

That's whose Organized Crime is running the Fed Scam and Capitol Hill.

It amazes me why all you so called followers of God are so focused on hating the Jews (good bad or indifferent).  If you were a true Christian, i.e. follower of Christ, the Savior, God in the flesh you would quit focusing on any human or groups of humans as the enemy.  The Apostle Paul said:

Ephesians 6:12New King James Version (NKJV)

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.


Satan's one goal is to kill steal and destroy your soul.  He is your true enemy.  Quit sweating the synagogue of satan, NWO, illuminate, etc.

iAmerican's picture

Cosmic difference between true Jews who love God and seek only holiness and righteousness: Isaiah's foretold "righteous remnant" we Zion-founding Gentiles are to shelter here in God's actual "Promised Land," America, and the Synagogue of Satan/atheist Herzl "Zionism"/Rabbinical Talmudism's Organized Crime, Gentile-execrating, phony "Jews."

Erudite Redneck's picture

true, but my point remains, our struggle is not with humans, no matter how corrupt or evil the group might be.  Why spend so much time focusing on those who commit wrong instead of focusing on proclaiming life and truth through Jesus Christ.  People generally respond to messages of hope and joy versus those of criticism and negativity.

old naughty's picture

an excellent point, Red.

Focussing on those who committed wrong help strengthen the vortex of negative energy that "gravitate" us here, downward.

iAmerican's picture

Red could be just another of the many gaslighting Talmuds seeking to protect Satan's "interests."

All true God-fearing Americans can agree Bush and Cheney must hang for their Mossad/JFK-assassinating Roman Catholic CIA/FBI 9/11 treason, with full expropriation and justice for their Hitler-financing false-elite.

Those who disagree support the Organized Crime Rothschild/Rockfeller faction running the unconstitutional Fed Scam all know killed John and Martin, did 9/11, staged Sandy Hook, and are now spreading Ebola.

 I'll be crucified again for agreeing with you but I don't care. It was ironically following the money from this site to finding another site that has many of ZH's articles a day before ZH that led me to a source that validates everything in your post. All backed up with multiple sources so that YOU can draw your own conclusions. I only had bits & pieces & had a larger picture presented with such cohesion I could not ignore it after a lifetime of being stiff necked. I won't mention names here, but one in which there's particular man love here was presented undeniably within the fold. Now Jim Willie is pounding the table regarding the same thing, "Satanists". 

2009 low 666

26 contracts of 666

There's no such thing as a coincidence. 

I see a battle between good & evil, not have's & have nots.

Everyone takes their own path. Some get there, some don't. All I can say is that I'm glad I gave it a listen. Much was framed around the majority of the enlightened opinions here, which is what piqued my interest to begin with.

Take it a bit further. Just as I gave this to Tony Wilson, this expands the scope tremendously. He expands on your view drastically. I doubt you'll listen to it, but if you go no further than 20 min in you'll see all of the things you profess, plus many said here.

No. This is what you were taught. It isnt just a black and white world. They set this up so they can control you much easier.  If they want you to choose hot this time (for instance), they make cold look bad. 

There are other choices out there. Why do you think people are so confused all the time? Think for yourself. Things are not as cut and dry as they told you. (Dont mean to frighten you. )
