All i can say is, i tend to prefer risky shares, and it's a total bloodbath. Worse today than ever :(

kind of shows that retail & daytraders are out.. And only robots are moving markets.  Algos are bidding/selling against each other.  Skynet is in full control.

And next week will be more deleveraging from hedgefunds  liquidating to meet redemptions, or close shop.

 gold & silver bugs better hope busted hedgefunds don't sell off SLV & GLD all at once.

slingshot trade on ES  240 minute chart. I took it using TNA and road it out. This trade gets it's name when you have a leg down, X to A, then retraces between 50% - 6.18% (A to B), then drops to the 6.18% (B to C) and then buyers load up. At this point the slingshot has been streched back and released. Usually see an explosion up. Of course this trade works the other way around, which btw was in play to the down side on the 60 minute chart earlier in the day. 

 Of course on the leg down (X to A) you have to be below 20 on the RSI to make it a valid trade. Hope to take profit around 1210-1213.

Who the fuck knows, i many never see that target tomorrow lol!

all that slingshot strategy and execution, it's OK when you're young, ---  but watch out, sounds like a set up pattern for future suffering from rapid cycling manic depression later in life.

Like jerking off too much, it can drive you insane.

Not kidding., Anyway, glad to hear you made money and good luck.

chinese stocks got a fair treatment: BIDU, SINA: -10%.

They will soon drop down to the earth.

Buy some protection these days. People are getting insane.

Banks are acting the best.

GNW, MS, KEY, HIG, etc. all up 6% - 7%, well off their lows from last week.

Bears need to slam this group ASAP, otherwise, the bottom might be in.

Just in Hedge fund Blow up

With the massive downdraft in momentum stocks today there has been speculation of a hedge fund blow-up. Those rumors now appear to be centered on John Thaler's JAT Capital. While we cannot verity if these rumors are true, the fund owns many of today's worst performers.

Some of his biggest positions includes:

Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU) down 10%
Wynn Resorts (Nasdaq: WYNN) down 10%

Molycorp, Inc. (NYSE: MCP) down 5%.

litt le disappointed that they didn;t have the good sense to round this out with some (CRM) and LinkedIn (LNKD).


Nice to see that they caught some RIG though. They paid a dividend, you know.

Well, he must have been done selling @ 12.30 (pacitic time) because all those stocks ripped higher starting a half hour before the close.

Those all look like "safe" names. 

This guy must read IBD each day and loads up.  If he had any leverage (all hedgies do) then he is toast.

If you haven't registered at, which allows you to look at the recent activity of firms like JAT, then you're missing a great opportunity to see just what went wrong. 

For example, holding 2 million shares of SINA, they added 700k while selling all of their position in Schlumberger.

ok, just chart the deescendig channell we are in. three days  lower lows and lower highs. very bearish. but until the channel breaks just trade it as a computer, I refer to the s and p

so your top tomm should be about 1665, I'd expect a drop and then late afternoon rebound so we close in the green, but hey you never know, go long when breaking the pior days high. I find I make my best trades doing this if I have in fact programmed the computer before it happens.

I also like to set the stop for the day before. meaning my stop loss tomm would be about 1150

when you hig the stop (if it was todays low, it will usually drop below and close above. make it very hard to get a good trade. It's the freaking algo's, and they could do this for months.

in contrast the ddaily macd is going up from the downside, (so we are a bit oversold on the daily side. I expect another run at 1200, or a bit above before another real short

made some horrible trades to start today, beautiful trades in the middle, ass raped at the close.


up 200 dollars (with over 3 million going through the cages). 


I only wish I had caught the fancy to spank to some first class ukrainian porn in that last hour rather than blow my freaking load all over my (what had been substantial) trading gains for the day.

But, but, Freddie Mac announced historic low mortgage rates? How can that NOT stimulate homeownership?

"Freddie Mac announces 4% mortgage rates, doesn’t announce that spreads between 30 yr mtg and 10 yr Treasuries rising to recession levels. Look at the VIX!"

Announce it, but they are not the ones who ORIGINATE the loans, the Cartel does, and as I heard, they do not want to part with their income stream of higher rate mortgages. And no refi's either. What makes matters worse is , people got suckered in once before by low interest rate mortgages- gotta make the points 1) FIXED RATE 2) NO TEASERS 3) PAYMENT FIXED for life of loan. Otherwise, nobody interested.
