Tyler Durden's picture

For the 3rd day in a row VXX (the VIX ETF) has been crushed lower (nearing its 10% circuit-breaker limit-down). This is the biggest 3-day drop in VXX on record...



This is VXX's biggest 3-day drop since inception..


as it is testing back to its 50- and 100-day moving-average...

This is the same etf Zero hedge insisted it will rocket because of short covering!

I'm getting tired of dragging my 'Dow 20,000' hats in and out of storage.

Just got me a new DOW 50,000 one printed up! Got a free 'Team Yellin, Fuck Yeah!' T shirt too!

As I've posted before, if there's anything that is more manipulated and fixed than gold or silver its the VIX.  The VIX is controlled like a puppet on strings. 

Somehow they have their algo's set to always push down the VIX.

What are these 'markets' you speak of?

HardlyZero's picture

Risk is a devo(lved) concept and no longer exists (/).

That 3rd chart would seem to indicate that the VIX did rocket upwards. Perhaps you need to reference the date of the articles you mention against the chart above?!

cut the crap mr bill



are you a zh staff- probably 90% that you are ,,,

Your posts reek of stupidity!

Anyone who goes to a site like ZH for investment ideas, knowledge or advice gets exactly what they deserve.

If on the otherhand you want to build a city, then ZH is absolutely a must stop for advice...

If your investment advice is buy everything all the time, and you end up being aren't an investor. You're a lucky moron.

Exactly.  Where is the ZH track record?

This site is pure entertainment.  You blast people for being wrong and yet you have zero accountability yourself.

Why do you care so much about being "right" all the time?  It's about making money.  If you're short stocks during QE Infinity you're not being a hero you're being an asshole.

At least Gartman admits when he's wrong.

@ we built this city

Most of us here use the information presented by ZH to INVEST, not trade. Big fucking difference.

None of us are crazy enough to trade against machines that can react in milliseconds to insider information they were handed......YESTERDAY !!!

In short, we keep stacking and wait.

You should probably tune into Cramer and Gartman on Bubblevision instead.

lincolnsteffens's picture

You should have kept your mouth shut until the closing. Now that was a bit of short covering. Who knows what tomorrow will bring but that was a pretty wild reversal day after the algo pump and dump.

Dude they point things out.  Most of this is contributed anyway.  They are ideas.  You can take them or leave them.  I didn't agree with any of the VIX backwardation observation article a couple days ago.  But it was still an interesting observation.  And I don't think it came from the site itself, like most of the actual ideas.  Data and observations are not wrong.  So no.  They have not been wrong for years.  They have presented tons of information from every point of view.  Some of the contributors are wrong.  But I still want to hear their ideas.  You think Gartman works here just becasue they quote him?

And yeah.  The market is broken as shit, as they keep pointing out. That is probably the only thing they repeat as a theme.

But, but .. Tepper told me to buy VXX just last week.  

we built this city's picture

the difference is that Tepper made alot of money since 2011 and was wrong now

Zh is wrong since 2011 - said markets will collapse! ang again was wrong now about VXX

If this was an actual market with real price discovery, and not a manipulated mess being held up by a bunch of idiot politicians and corrupt bankers it would have corrected years ago.  Instead, we have what we have, something nobody trusts at all anymore...

No problems everyone! FREE MONEY comin again!! yay.

That Escalated Quickly...and it's gone.


Now there will be deflationary spiral (first).

Then will the EM now be getting on every plane and train for the Developed Market ? 

Everyone will just move to new digs...and then finally hyperinflation as all markets collapse and there will be no Oil or fresh water.

If there's no volatility to be found, why not hike?

Get ready for LIMIT UP!

VXX buying opportunity gifted to nimble traders.

HardlyZero's picture

Volatility and Escalation for the wild ride, followed by deflationary spiral, then hyper-loop-inflation.

xrxs's picture

I am not gifted. I was run over by UVXY and left some $$$ on the table.

as someone short enough VIX products right now to choke a mule I can tell you it is not down..  least not the front month expiring tomorrow.


was a few minutes ago, it was down a lot but you dont know gamma till you hold last day ATM VIX options positions on a FED day the day before tripple witching after a big selloff. 


shit moves man, it moves fast.


on a side note, remember when the market was dictated by the movement and wellness of Apple stock alone?  Well the tops clearly in; Apple is finished.  What does that say for the market now? 

HardlyZero's picture

Apple like Disney.  Noticed yesterday the market was up and Disney down.  Wild.

Is this the new China last 15 minute sinularity crash now ?  Every market is rigged for the last 15 minutes before close.

Needs some Nanex analysis...and a instantaneous Swirl-O-Gram to show the cavity vortex forming in the economies.


Sure looks like a singularity in the markets (now), which can open up at any time.
