Tech Wreck 2.0? FANG Stocks Suddenly Slammed, Nasdaq Dives, VIX Spikes Above 10

Tyler Durden's picture

VIX is suddenly spiking higher (back above 10) and stocks lower - amid no obvious catalyst...


Nasdaq is tumbling...


As Dow Transports suffer their second biggest drop in 10 months...


And FANG Stocks dive...

NFLX and GOOGL are the big laggards today/this week...

We note that Bloomberg reported earlier that gains for Facebook and account for about two-thirds of the S&P 500’s 5 point gain.

Do Algos read Howard Marks?

Prepare to buy the Dip.  Probably somewhere in the ES mid 50's.

Probably Draghi or Yellen or Kuroda making fun of ZH readers with fake fiats!

Well yeah, they aren't allowed in the military anymore.

Well, the "trannies" can no longer serve in the military, so what did you expect...?

Hmm, I detect a Civ player

Overleveraged_and_Impatient's picture

Omg WTF!!

I am hereby calling on the Presdient's Working Group on Financial Markets to fix this IMMEDIATELY! Meanwhile, buying this dip with more 3x Long Leveraged S&P 500. If must be, we can have Yellen call for an emergency microphone session.

I think there's a new 4X ETF.  You should use that instead.  Because 4X.

NugginFuts's picture

4X is for amateurs. Real pros use 100X.

Lookout! Its a trap!!!  ;-)

My guess: Yellen to lay out balance sheet drawdown at Jackson Hole...leaving Sept meeting open for a rate hike

The JooBuck is almost back to even from yesterday 159pm.

2480.25 is the top extreme on the weekly ES_F chart value bracket. Key level for bank desks. Always going to get sellers there on first tap.

oh the vix spiked. Very important information, not.

"Tech Wreck"=stocks a tiny fraction of a percent from highest prices in history.

Cut if off and we're good as new

Holy hell! The DOW drops to +50. What ever shall we do?

Alchemedes's picture

"Nasdaq dives"??  Bah! NDX has.t even closed the gap from yesterday's close!

Where are the BTFD bears?

Turin Turambar's picture

Simple explanation.  Stocks all ramped up into FANG earnings.  Now that they've pretty much all reported and been driven to record highs, it's time for the manipulators to cash out at the top and screw everybody else.  SMH

Hikikomori's picture

OMG!  OMG!  OMG!  - some stocks PLUNGE 1.6% - truly, the End Times are here!

TrainReck's picture

BTFD...What Train Reck? Responsive buyers shaking out those foolish shorts.

Zeej's picture

Clearly these markets are total bullshit

Days like today you can ease into a nice sized friday expiration OTM call position on these trash tech stocks and pay for a nice trip somehwere if the trade works in your favor.

Take away Janet's printer and watch those FANG stocks swoon

Grandad Grumps's picture

Just remember that the banks manage/control price. If price drops, then they made it drop.

just clearing out my shorts.  had an issue earlier, too many tacos, thought it was a fart.

Oh wait, you meant the stock market.  errr, sorry....kind of gross...

Banker Buster's picture

Oh god plunge protection team, where are you, please come into the market.  /s  please keep the .gov idiots out of the markets.

Tyler, please stop asking CNN to make up your headlines.

abbottmd's picture

I am guessing AMZN's earnings for tonight leaked, one of the last FAANGs to report

onthedeschutes's picture

Just got off the phone with the Swiss.  Turns out someone kicked the ethernet cable for the trading desk for the Swiss National Bank.  It's plugged back in now.  Upward rampfest on FANG stocks should resume any moment.  ECB, Bank of England, Bank of Japan all set to pick up any slack.

Big buyers collude and agree not to buy for a few hours, stop loss orders get hit and shares are bought on the cheap. Then ramp up continues.
