"Someone" Desperately Intervened to Save Stocks Yesterday

Phoenix Capital Research's picture

The Central Banks are getting desperate. The interventions are so obvious now you’d have to be on drugs not so notice them.


On Monday afternoon, at 3PM “someone” stepped in to prop up stocks. They did it again yesterday at 10AM. These were obvious interventions.


How do we know this was intervention and not real buying?


Because no real buyer guns the markets 20+ points higher in a matter of minutes.


Real investors carefully try to buy stock without gunning the market higher. If the market explodes higher, you get a worse entry point.


Why are Central Banks desperately trying to “save” stocks?


Because the markets have lost faith in their abilities.


The Bank of Japan launched Negative Interest Rate Policy or NIRP two Fridays ago. Japanese stocks rolled over and crashed just one day later. They’ve since lost over 6%.



Consider that for a moment. The Bank of Japan, launched NIRP for the first time in history, and instead of exploding higher, stocks collapse.

Japan ALSO had to cancel a bond auction for the first time in history because investors didn’t want to buy bonds at negative rates.

The End Game has begun for Central Banks. Desperate interventions may push stocks higher temporarily, but the next Crisis has officially begun.

Smart investors are preparing now.

We just published a 21-page investment report titled Stock Market Crash Survival Guide.


In it, we outline precisely how the crash will unfold as well as which investments will perform best during a stock market crash.


We are giving away just 1,000 copies for FREE to the public.

Would everyone please quit bashing Phoenix Capital's promotion of their services. It's a paid advertisement-doesn't mean there isn't useful information. It supports ZH  -someone has to pay for their expenses. Every internet website has such sponsors/articles. I see Jim Rickards articles on Yahoo and I usually just ignore them as I know they are paid advertisements. Why don't we all just agree that Phoenix articles are to promote their investment business and quit all the constant commentary and bashing of this fact. Just my opinion.

So every market move that doesn't conform to your preconceptions is the result of "intervention"? What balderdash.

You can almost set your watch by the interventions.   Who?  Doesnt matter.  Why?  That is the question.  They are terrified by a 20% market correction.  But why?  Shit happens, bubbles deflate, so what.  There must be something we are just not seeing to all this.

It's too bad, and getting pretty obnoxious, that they always end their fairly informative articles with "article-fomercial" bullshit like this:

We just published a 21-page investment report titled . . . . We are giving away just 1,000 copies for FREE to the public.   To pick up yours, swing by . . . .

Doing that instantly reduces their apparent objectivity on any given subject . . . . IMHO.

I appreciate the "hurry because there are limited copies of my web page" line because it helps me determine the credibility of the rest of the article. Not that I would need a huge hint to be skeptical of claims presented with no evidence whatsoever.

"Because no real buyer guns the markets 20+ points higher in a matter of minutes."

They don't? How do we know that? I'd love to blame the central banks, but where is the evidence? This article is garbage, and the shameless huckster pitch at the end is a perfect match for the content.

Yeah right . . . one club member giving info to another club member/ex CIA consultant.  That's info I can do without, thank you.

Good lord... What kind of fucking "research" is this?

There are massive market moves done all the time now via algos. Maybe this chop shp has heard of them...

Just a nice oversold setups on Mon/Tues with trader's eyeing Yellen's talk today. Take a look at the 30+ minute/hourly SPY/Futures charts and the setup was pretty clear.   Obviously, traders bought puts or shorted the market this morning...

So stupid, they think they can control and intervene anything, markets, currency, gold, silver, the climate, they are idiots thinking they are doing gods work, instead they are just destroying everything including there own credibility.

What they should do is retreat, and stay the fuck out, and let "things" find there own way.

yep, everything the ubiquitous 'they' get involved in gets only worse or moar expensive.

These elitist sociopath cocksuckers aren't idiots.  They aren't doing god's work, and they know it.   They're lining their pockets and completely fucking the people by instituting INSANE fiscal/monetary policies.

Oh, they are doing god's work alright.  The only problem is their "god" is red and has horns . . . .

And be hanged or guillotined in the end

History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme, maybe this time they will be kicked to death or ran over slowly by some Caterpillar mining equipment

I honestly thought there was a chance of a big move down yesterday, I thought I was maybe watching the start of a quick crash -  SPX came so close to cracking the 1820 floor that it has to have been rescued.  Not because I must be right, but just momentum, sentiment & FUD at the time and very little volume (thankfully for the antiplunge guys I guess).   Wonder how long this can be kept up now, will be interesting with China back online.

Calling in the air strike on zero hedge likely helped as well

The stupidity of the actors in the central banks appears to be limitless.

50% (probably way more than that) of the executive and legislative branches and probably about 75% of the judiciary has failed to meet this obligation over the last two decades.  Why the FUCK aren't these assholes doing HARD TIME???  Wake the fuck up people!!!!

Glad I voted yesterday (15 % enough guys?, he can win).

20 points?  Hell we've seen +200 point ramps on nearly a daily basis at specific times of the day. 


I start the popcorn about the same time and check the comments on ZH looking for Kaiser Soze...

He's talking about the spx

"He's talking about the spx"

Yeah, but a +/-200 point move in the S&P would be a real eye opener too ya' know......

Not sure.  Shorts covering drives the market up as well.

Usually due to news. There was no news

. . . and yesterday, ZH was down through most of the market hours.  Not the first time. Overall, I'd have say their efforts are failing (flailing too).
