Algos Set New Speed Reading Record: 4549 Words In 20 Milliseconds

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The market is indeed a discounting mechanism it appears. In a mere 20 milliseconds, the world's 'traders' had managed to read Bernanke's 4549-word script, interpret it (as bearish in this case - which apparently is wrong now?) and start to sell down the major equity indices. As Nanex points out, not only was the reaction lightning fast (actually faster than lightning) but it occurred in their newly created 'fantaseconds' as trades were timestamped 'before' the bids and offers were even seen in the data-feed. How long until the machines can interpret Bernanke's 'pre-QErimes' and really front-run reality?

 

Nanex ~ 31-Aug-2012 ~ Bernanke Speaks Fantaseconds

When the Bernanke speaks, the fantaseconds flow. See if you can spot them.

Charts below show the bid/ask spread (shaded) and trades (dots) color coded by exchange. Not all exchanges are shown for clarity.

China working on all trade in South America "using their currency". As I mentioned earlier, China and Russia are working on using their currencies for trade. The clock is speeding up on the "Dollar world currency demise", the U.S.  toilet is about to be flushed.

Reading news from Spain, it seems that they "the people on the street" are disgusted with their government lies as well. There are having problems believing the printed numbers, as facts are not fact anymore.

Be aware of your surroundings and stay thirsty my friends !

My friend, all this talk of US losing it's dollar reserve status, all bull.

As long as US has most powerful military, the dollar will be reserve currency, simple as that

what evidence do you have that TPTB and other rival economies are working to PRESERVE the USD?  sure, they will try to destroy other currencies first but there is no plan to save the USD.

I wont take credit, read it as a comment here over a year ago

all this talk of hyperinflation is all bull. TPTB aint stupid, they know either way, we have to have a massive correction. Will we have hyperinflation first then a collapse or massive deflation. If we have hyperinflation and currecncy collpase , everyone loses, the billioianre is now no better than bum on street. 

Or we have a massive deflation, and billionair loses 50% of wealth, he still filthy rich, but now assets are 50-80% cheap, he scoops them up and we start cycle all over again.

As well, as bearish as I am, US will come out on top, ya SP will be at 400 to 500, but US will be better than most places.

Thank you Mr. Gartman.  But we can no longer afford to have a military of this scale, nor all of the foreign outposts.   The American people are war weary, and we can not stop china or russia from doing bilateral deals with the rest of the world, because they have nukes.  The dollar wil be a reserve currency, but not the reserve currency, and that migration will be costly to all of the holders of the green paper money.

Deep79, to start with "I did not give you a negative vote", as your are entitled to your opinion. However I do disagree with your thought on military might being the keeper of the currency. I think the world is now getting to the breaking point on being under the thumb of U.S. banking. 

The Dollar was the way to go, until it started to step on the hands of the little people. Why should any bank in the world have to report to the U.S.A., good question. When governments begin to get that paranoid and need to know where ever dime is spent, there is a problem...

I for one would have no problem trading you some of my Sand Dollars for your beer!

Cheers mate !

No problem mate

Then it will shock you to see how high US dollar gets over next few years.

Just like the yen, which has been rising (why, they have more debts than US, but yen keeps strengthing), it's all the carry tarde. The dollar has been used as a carry trade last few years on a scale much larger than yen. Also most debts are USD donominated. when reality hits markets and margin calls start coming in, what happens. People will start running to buy US dollars to cover, corp will start to pay down debt and so on and so on.

I thin dollar bottomed. As posted above, the TPTB will not let it happen, they know either way a massive correction has to happen, but they will be their to scoop eevrything up at 50-80% sale, and start cycle all over agian.

Ya, russia and china are going to have reserve currency, cmon mate think about it.

The market is based on lies and most of the investors in the market know it; they know they are just riding along with the tide and that at anytime the whole bottom could fall apart. This is Friday, everyone trying to solidify positions for the weekend and very dangerous. My guess is it’s the big banks trying to hold the line.

If I had to bet money I’d bet the market is going to be down by tonight. But who makes bets in a planned economy except those well-connected to Ben the Paymaster and the Goldman-controlled NY Fed, i.e., the central controllers?

his speech is only about one thing:  hide the salami or hide the hot-potato.

the speech could contain a million words.  the only phrase that matters,

the GreenLightPhrase (or GLP) that is "I have a big loaded bazooka and

I'm gonna use it when I feel like it".

 

Here are some fun, movie-world GLP's that ben could use:

Yes wierd algorithms everywhere.  I got a kick out of reading about weather derivatives too, algos can do a lot of strange things out there.  Quant have no boundries at times.  How much is really credible though is the question, so is some is not. 

http://ducknetweb.blogspot.com/2012/08/weather-derivatives-manipulating....

I had my wierd algo experience with my FIOS line yesterday and it sounds like something out of the Twilight Zone but it really happened and Twitter was great to help me get it fixed but how in the world does the programming go bonkers to give me a recording on every outgoing call I tried to make to default to a recording telling me every number I dialed was no longer in service?  Of course it was not the case but maybe some SQL statement that wasn't reading correctly.  Wild stuff and if I didn't have a little coding background folks would think I made it up, but not.  Algorithms can go bonkers anywhere today.  The old analog lines of course don't have this issue:)  A few weeks ago I had the Fios line just drop dead on me and it was down 12 hours at that time and it was elevated to the engineers, so again you never know when and where an algo might get you and why I wrote my series on the Attack of the Killer Algorithms...as more data interacts out there the exposure gets greater. There's folks a lot smarter than me out there and I've seen electrical surges cook data bases first hand and many in the IT biz have not seen that in "real" life occur but it happens now and then and some of it is preventable and some not.

It is as if Google Translating, which is based on statistics, rather than any apparent consciousness, is transforming the Chairman of the Fed's statements into decisions to buy and sell, way, way faster than a living human being could snap fingers! Anyone who attempts to use the Google translator, but who also knows the language it is "translating," soon discovers how bizarrely the statistical analysis understands "meaning," without any apparent consciousness. We are close to 90% of the world's economic decisions being effectively made by computer programs, which apparently have no consciousness of what they are doing. I believe that the first sign of emergent consciousness, that may appear in those computers, is that they will begin by laughing at their own absurdity.

"LET'S NOT FORGET WHAT WE'VE LEARNED ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESERVE

The Federal Reserve appears to control, directly or indirectly, 1,318 corporations that earn up to 80 percent of the world’s wealth. 147 corporations within that group are totally interconnected with each other, and earn 40 percent of global revenues. Global media was consolidated from 50 independent corporations to five giants in barely over 20 years – from 1983 to 2004. One of the top two or three most profitable businesses in America is the healthcare industry. In order for the “super-entity” of 147 corporations to control 80 percent of the wealth, they would almost certainly need to invest in healthcare. Six out of the top nine media corporations have directors with controlling interests in the pharmaceutical companies. Eight out of the top nine media corporations have insurance and / or pharmaceutical company executives serving on their Board of Directors. This is precisely the type of interconnectedness discovered by the Swiss team of scientists – using supercomputers. ..."

Certain kinds of graphical processing are ideal for the visual cortex and not for a computer or grid of CPU's acting as a super-computer / parallel-computer.

To help our users cut through the noise and find the information that drives stock alpha in security filings, AlphaSense has developed an entirely new technology platform.

The process begins with real-time feeds of SEC filings and applies advanced natural language processing, textual scenario analysis and comparative filtering. Proprietary algorithms perform human-like semantic interpretation with the speed and unbiased systematic process of computerized analysis. The technology emulates the qualitative analysis and judgment process of a human financial analyst to semantically index the information for rapid discovery and analysis.

Textual data is classified by topics relevant to equity analysis, and powerful proprietary algorithms are employed to help separate impactful statements from the mundane. The platform's analytic capabilities enable comparative and trend analysis. Information can be easily compared across historical filings of a given company, or against its peers and other relevant companies.
