Apologies For The Downtime

Tyler Durden's picture

As readers may have noticed Zero Hedge has been down for about an hour. We apologize for the downtime which was due to a surge in traffic unseen since the May 6 flash crash, resulting in one of our servers (located naturally offshore) to literally explode. We hope to have remedied the situation, at least for the time being. Readers may experience intermittent access but we hope to have everything running back up and normal shortly. And now we return you to your regularly scheduled melt down, which can be followed tick for tick with every single spike in HFT quite stuffing as seen on the below proprietary indicator from our friends at Nanex. Indeed, as we suspected yesterday, packet stuffing is just the weapon someone would use if they wanted to bring down the market enough to where QE3 was not only palatable but required.
