Another Market Breaks - Tokyo Stock Exchange Halts Derivative Trades

Tyler Durden's picture


Earlier today the Spanish stock exchange was down for nearly 5 hours - the reason is unclear: perhaps as a form of precrime punishment to all those felons who would even consider selling stocks in the future. Now, the SkyNet self-awareness wave goes East just as Japan opens and takes down all Tokyo derivative trading:

  • Tokyo Stock Exchange Stops Derivative Trades, Cites System Error - BBG
  • Tokyo Stock Exchange Group stopped trading of Topix futures, JGB futures and options from around
    9:20 a.m. because of a systems error.
  • Co. spokesman Naoya Takahashi spoke in phone interview

In the aftermath a series of events such as the FaceBook IPO collapse, Knight, IBEX, this was only logical and expected. Tomorrow, any stock market that even thinks of a red candle will be halted indefinitely.

The central banks of the world, namely the Federal Reserve, as it has control of the world's reserve currency, print too much money, and by doing so, fool the world into squandering savings and investment, as well as blowing money on spending and consumption because interest are are too low making it easier to consume and and not as rewarding to produce.

Short squeeze on Friday as Knight breaks down. Spain's market problem on Monday. Japan's market problems Monday night. Market shoots up today only to reverse right before close. Tomorrow might be the beginning of the last deflationary scare. Then they print print print and markets rise rise rise through election. The only problem is that markets will keep on rising as inflation sweeps over the world. This may be the real deal here. Endgame.

 Like to know what's behind these "glitches," but one thing I know for certain is there are big problems behind the scenes being covered up. Anyone else dying to see what's being covered up continually? 'Bout time something broke and broke good.

There is no question about it.

What lies behind the curtain is nothing good. Nothing good at all.


Best guess is basically what Churchill said last week;


"Or does it mean the shadow banking system no longer trusts the

banks collateral in the repo market , and will not lend into it.

That would be the same as 2008/9.

Happy days are here again."


This basically is in line with the latest Fed Survey today out that US banks have tightened credit lines with Euro banks and one going on to say considerably tightened.

Of course had they never broke Libor......

I hear ya loud and clear.  It would literally "end the BS and PONZI" tomorrow, I would bet.  The house of cards would not simply fall, would not simply "burst into flames", but I believe it is so bad it would DETONATE!

There is simply NO EXCUSE in the world for "glitches" to appear in these markets, and that the HFT's could and would be allowed to muck up the machines for fuck's sake.

Look at it this way:  When all we had was slide rules and abaci, we did not have these kind of "glitches"!!!  Simply put nobody is "accounting" anymore, and with computers to do the work it shines a light on the simple fact, things are FUCKED UP so the CRIMINALS can SCREW YOU AND ME and call it "Investing" instead of "confidence game" (illegal) or simply stealing or theft (also illegal).

With high speed computers, we should be catching the glitches.  Simply put: this is the old conundrum of cops and "bringing a knife to a gun fight".  "We have pistols, they gt rifles, we get rifles, they get mM-16s, we get M-16s, they get armor piercing rounds".  Same for the SEC, the "fastest computing speed" should be that of the "cops" watching the whole GOD DAMN mess to make sure it is "fair".  For all you assholes that think we need "no regulations" in the market place, you do GOD DAMMIT, NEED, TO KEEP IT FUCKING FAIR!!!!



I WANT MY GOD DAMN MARKET BACK so I can INVEST in BUSINESSES, and so I don't have to deal with a criminal cabal to do fuckin' business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

There is no business or invest that will make money in this system.

What part of that do you not understand?  Cost of money and the depreciating value in "money".


You are telling me to start a business in "this" shitstorm and economy of a market, and political environment?  Taxes, Med Insurance, overhead that is currently "unknown".  You need to understand that you are not as "all knowing" about somebody's life experience by one stupid post, and an overused witicism.


Get real, this will take a revolt, and you had better be ready to "stand".

You're working under the assumption we ever had real markets in the first place. In an arena where winners and losers can be picked by the regulators and those in power there is not now, nor has there ever been a market. And as far as more regulation goes , they were always meant for people like you and me. They were never meant for the true criminals , those closest to the reigns of power. More regulation keeps out the competition and maintains the status quo. Were you paying attention to the Jamie Dimon hearings? The questioners were asking his opinion on the regulations. So the more regulation that you are begging for will just bring more of this nonsense not less. Out of the thousands pages of regulations there is only one we really need... bankruptcy.

Now go ahead use your extremely high IQ above 60 and your capital letters to berate me. I'm a big boy I can take it.

maybe we had something "more real"?

well, there was a time when we had specialists at their posts:  people with capital taking personal and corporate respensibility for orderly markets

no, it wasn't perfect;  it was periodic insanity (like it is s'posed to be, btw...?)

and people recorded their mortgages and trust deeds where they were s'posed to and when they were s'posed to and didn't "do what everybody else was doing" like a buncha fuking jr. H.S. children smoking in the boys' room

the blogger you're answering didn't repeal glass-stgl, nor replace it in an umitigated (still) disaster w/ the multi-000-page dodd/frankster for the bankster, which it seems you don't care for either (?)  gonna vote 4 mittens? 

sure things were gamey and gamed but not by fuking robots, ok, doc?

and people went to the slammer;  even banksters!  and by the fuking busload too!

so maybe there is a problem that we have "evolved" to a place where humans no longer matter, except rhetorically or for theatric or propwash MSM purposes;  so when an 'everyman' wants something "back" which he can relate as an individual, not a corpo-fascist debt cog to pay the vig to vinny some can hear him, others apparently can't hear his voice

why not?  it is not "really" unclear

b/c they want that corpo-fascist control & vig right vinnie, er... doc...  ?

Quote from Rick Rule

"The idea that the Fed can pump liquidity through the banks to get the corporations to start spending again isn’t going to work.  The reason for this is because the very set of circumstances that the Fed exacerbates, by adding more debt, is keeping the corporations from understanding.  It’s the opposite of a virtuous circle. So these are very, very scary times.  What they are able to do by adding this liquidity to the system is foment a series of small, but spectacular bubbles.  Of course the other thing they are doing is furthering this war on savers.  These are truly strange times."

I think that says it all

"Samurai Stock Exchange!"

No wonder the Japs can rack up debt exceeding 200+ % of GDP and enjoy 1% interest rates forever.

Basically, everyone there hates stocks, and the elders have enough saved in the Postal system to retire without earning a dime on their next egg.

Therefore, "Animal Spirits" will never wake up over there, regardless of how low rates go.

Japan needs to open up its immigration and allow some F12-punching speculative monkeys from Taiwan, China, Vietnam, etc. into that country to get the gambling spirit fired up among the sheep over there,

Maybe, then maybe Japan has a chance to emerge from its "superbear" stock market.

Good! Leave it that way. The only good derivative trade is no derivative trade. Let them starve to death.

Is this the "horrible problems" Wozniak was talking about with cloud computing?

The funny thing about derivatives is that a lot of them will blow up the market if there is a big move up or down.  It just doesn't matter what happens with so much leverage on both sides of the trade.  The market has to maintain stasis in a growing pressure cooker.  So one day you wake up and gold is at 20k an ounce or the DOW is at 1500.  If someone loses, it all comes apart.

"The yuan has probably become the weakest currency in Asia and I'm not sure whether it will stay at that level today as dollar buying from corporates could set in at any time," says a Shanghai-based foreign bank trader. Offshore, one-year USD/CNY NDFs are down at 6.4245/6.4275 from 6.4260/6.4290 late Monday."

China USD bids are in

*Macro fund USD buys seen almost across board.

Cue volatality and capped equity markets, we got our July meltup, now it's topped and ready to sell off.  August is going to be a nasty month

"In the aftermath a series of events such as the FaceBook IPO collapse, Knight, IBEX, this was only logical and expected. Tomorrow, any stock market that even thinks of a red candle will be halted indefinitely."


A form of price flooring. We know what eventually happens to price caps and floors. They get demolished when market forces (being temporary delayed and manipulated) eventually take force.
