Market Volume Snapshot During The Quake

Tyler Durden's picture

Who knew: all it takes to get some semblance of volume in the market is for a quake shaking the entire Eastern seaboard and pervasive evacuations of New York skyscrapers (incidentally, the NYMEX was evacuated).

That sounds rather unpleasant.  How about just 200k pink slips in the financial services industry?

AldousHuxley's picture

How about let them get paid 100% in bank stocks with 4 year vesting period to make them work insane hours living in squalor in Jew York shitty, then in 2-3 years let the banks go bankrupted. Start with the top execs.


Worse than ending their misery with a pink slip is to continue it.

I Wonder wonder who is watching the nuclear reactor under the White House if the evacuated?

Some poor, TS-cleared building custodian with a wife and 2 kids.

Just long enough for Blythe & Co. to send gold by 4%. You gotta hand it to the woman to man the bridge while every one else abandoned ship.

That was just Skynet awakening.

The dead rising yet there?  Come on zombie apocalypse!

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Sadly the walking dead already populate DC. Or at least the halls of power. I was hoping the earthquake would get that liquefaction thingy going and the entire stinking mess would be swallowed by the swamp it was built on.

<sigh> Dream on CD.

Cdad's picture

Yeah, but minus the actual craving for human flesh, the walking dead there are boring.

I was really hoping for flesh eaters on the streets of NY, NY.  Talk about great TV!

Cdad's picture

Oops...upping the ante...nuke plants shutting down...and we all know that radiation quite possibly animates the walking dead.  Come on zombie apocalypse!

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

The DC lobbyist's eat human flesh. Since there is......what...... around 20,000 of them, what more do you want?

Cdad's picture

what more do you want?

Criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers being eaten alive in the streets.  I'm not really asking for all that much.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Your request seems totally reasonable to me.

Margin Call - The Movie coming fall of 2011. That's just around the earthquake shattered corner.

Cdad, did you hit the bourbon a bit early today?

Cdad's picture

Brother engineer,

Nope...this is Cdad in normal mode...and I drink martinis, thank you.

You'll know it is happy hour here when I start cussing out all the new Hong Kong based ZH clutter monkeys.

Ned Zeppelin's picture

Ah, a fellow martini drinker.  Given the times, I salute you for upholding one of the last bastions of civilization.

Oooh, I'd forgotten all about that combination, given the lack of seismic activity there. The dandelions may have some help overtaking the place after all.

malikai's picture

Looks like an earthquake to me, only on a fancy bloomberg terminal.

The algos are programmed to dump on seismic disturbances.

pissy little americans getting all worked up over a little 5.8 EQ. It's because they hate our freedoms. I wonder who you'll invade for this one?

SheepDog-One's picture

WTF are you muttering about? How did a rejected Yahoo! Finance poster get in here?

malikai's picture

Isn't this where they all come to troll?

InconvenientCounterParty's picture

"pissy little americans"

get out much? If not, I recommend an American football game. You should wear that little gem on your chest. It will be life changing.

junkacc's picture

No seriously, check out every fucking blogsite to see pages upon pages of earthquake discussion and hysteria. It's as if a 9.0 hit and the survivors are in a group hug... cue MSM interviews of people sobbing on TV wailing how terrified they were. Typical overreacting americans playing the victim.

HelluvaEngineer's picture

Careful or we will invade you.  Have any oil?

macholatte's picture

Typical Typical overreacting americans playing the victim.

I'm confused. Does that overreacting and playing the victim still count if the folks are illegal immigrants? 

NotApplicable's picture

No, it's not as if a 9.0 hit. I'd say you're the one overreacting here.

junkacc's picture

At least now the enonomists can blame the great Virginia Earthquake of 2011 for bad economic data.

FunkyMonkeyBoy's picture

At least no one innocent will perish.

SheepDog-One's picture

I hope the whole f'n easter seaboard plunges suddenly into the Atlantic.

Sudden Debt's picture

Every has dream like that.

Me for example: I hope global warming happens real fast. If the sea level risses 3 to 4 meters, my house will very close to the sea, meaning my real estate value would go up BIG TIME. And also the Holland people would try to relocate so that should also make my real estate rise in price.

Yeah... still dreams....

I'd better burn a bit more platic in my back yard and let my car run stationairy this evening to support the rising water levels...

I will support you by switching on all of the remaining decandescent lightbulbs in my house - since Germany switched off most nuclear powerplants, it comes from yummie co2 producing ones.

I'm in VA south of Richmond, that was a big quake.

Alexandria, Virginia here... Rubberbanded our building.

Ready to hear how the libertarians were to blame and the ass kissers to praise them for their "honesty"

now you know why they call it jellystone park. hope you pic-a-nic baskets are safe 

Vinny's picture

This site rocks! No place else has such up to date information. I tried Googling first and only got some clerk's personal experience on the screen. Nada from the MSM. I guess they're busy evacuating all the buildings. Zerohedge has the most acurate and most up to date info anywhere.
