Swiss Stock Market Collapses Instantaneously On 5th Anniversary Of Flash-Crash

Tyler Durden's picture

It's deja vu all over again...who are 'they' going to blame for this one?

 

The "event" halted the entire Swiss Market for 3 minutes. And this was followed by an outage in Stoxx exchange data delivery this morning.

Fonestar did it.

I just know he did...

OK, that's one.  If you say it two more times he's going to appear again like Beetlejuice.  Knock it off.

NotApplicable's picture

So... whose bow is this a shot across?

Bananamerican's picture

no one's...it's just the Devil People giggling around the Big Coincidence Switches™...like the one that took us down to 666 in 2009

Damn kids in their parents basements are screwing up the market again.....

If one stares long into the abyss, the abyss will stare back into one.

You don't need liquidity when you have really good circuit breakers.

I'm so confident of this, I'm going to go stick a knife in my toaster.  Be right back.

You should be sitting in a tub of water while you do it...just to make sure....

Not sure how many people remember this, but Clif High of halfpasthuman.com had called this date and event precisely. Totally weird. 

He had even called the Betrayus scandal.

As for this blame canard, someone blessed with a reasonable amount melanin for sure.

And definitely not blue-eyed.

I'd say, look east for the scapegoats and west-centralish for Moloch and his minions ;-)

Meanwhile, Sequence 15...

Wish you could see how both domesticated & wild varmints react to 11.

Hateful felines turn loving & affectionate every time I play it. Resonates with me too.

Bluebirds & wren fly close to the back patio. They may want food, but there's a pattern.

Oh regional Indian's picture

So cool to hear mate, thanks for sharing that.

I'm saving this thread/page for posterity. :-)

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do... www.jobs-review.com

Do you cry a lot after each time? 

Does it get easier?

Is your favorite movie Pretty Woman?

Tyler doesn't (or does they?)

Cuckoo clocks aren't from Swissy.

I am just surprised that Navinder was able to set up his trading computers in the jail basement...

Osmium's picture

Unpossible.  They already arrested the evil doer of all market crashes.

"you keep using that word..."

 

gmak's picture

I do not think that that word means what you think it does.

But his allusion means what he intended: 

1. Never get involved in a land war in Asia, and

2. Never bet against the 'Sicilian'.

Time to frog march another Indian.

I give it even odds we are all stuck in some tub of goop with tubes coming out of us.

viahj's picture

is that why a lot of things taste like chicken?

NotApplicable's picture

Chicken just happens to taste like processed soy.

Crazy how nature do that.

BandGap's picture

Coincidence? Or is someone sending messages?

Seems almost Hollywood-like that this happens on the anniversary of the first.

Ghordius's picture

we also need a juicy counter-conspiracy theory: an evil organization that recruited Indians to be the evil organization's patsies in their manipulations of the financial markets

"I say, keep those foreign devils from manipulating our markets!" - applause, standing ovation

Brilliant quip, pod! Fortunately they will never run out of them - at least in Britain!

NoDebt's picture

If my old eyes are deading the number correctly, that was about an 8% move in couple minutes.

Osmium's picture

If it were an 8% move to the upside, it would not be news.

TeamDepends's picture

You are deading that right, m'friend.

NoDebt's picture

I couldn't fix it fast enough before he replied.

5 years later, even more broken.  and 100x more hollow.  luckily for bulls, the curbs are in.  so stocks will crash over a few days instead of a few hours.  rofl!!!
