Today's Historic Market Open, Caught On Tape

Tyler Durden's picture

During the flash crash of May 6, 2010, the 1000 plunge in the Dow Jones seems historic, unprecedented and surely unrepeatable - after all the regulators had "learned their lesson" and would never allow a move like this ever again, right? Wrong.

How come gold and silver aren't to the moon?

The green close today will be just as historic and, of course, totally normal.

Tylers are posting up articles faster than I can read them between panicked client phone calls.

Been buying shit all morning, at the rate they are bouncing thanks to the PPT, I may be selling them later today for a decent profit.

It's the last line be defense.....everything else goes first.


It's the PPT....working for you.

This would be the terminal humiliation for the owners of the casino, sometimes falsely referrred to as financial "markets". Anything must and will be done to prevent Gold and Silver to rise during a paper asset melt down.

Gold an Silver wil be allowed to rise only with QE4.

It's always been about Black Tuesday, this morning was just a warm up. The crash will be tomorrow. The sheep have been spooked and we will never return to the old ways now.

I'm just surprised they couldn't get it down 6.66%.

Good luck Doc, I hope you don't wind up selling apples on a street corner......

Dr. Engali's picture

When the shit show finally does fall apart, we'll be lucky if there are any apples to sell.

Good luck cashing in those chips once they lock the casino doors.

I read the last part of your sentence as "...selling apples to a street Cramer..."

The real story is who with proof is the buyer that was able to turn the market around.  There must be some type of paper trail.

You can have all the paper trail you want, this is sanctioned.

the SNB ?

Among this list of the Swiss central bank’s holdings are stocks which are responsible for more than 100% of the year-to-date rise in the S&P 500 prior to the latest sell-off.

the Swiss central bank could be operating as an agent of the Federal Reserve.

If they're bankers, I hope you're giving them proper "advice".

The politically correct term is "vertical insertion", as in "go to the roof and vertically insert yourself into the pavement"....

In medical terms, they'd end up suffering from sudden deceleration trauma. And, for the sake of the banksters, I hope it really hurts. A lot.

It's pretty funny to see how Japan and Merika criticized China for propping up their market .

I guess you don't realize that you can't artificially prop up the value of an asset that can be conjured up out of thin air.
