NYSE Reviewing Trades In 148 Symbols Between 9:30 And 10:15

Tyler Durden's picture


At least the market was broken for at most only 148 stocks. If it was all of them, we would have Flash Crash part Mon Dieu which would confirm that the "market" is nothing but a programmed, or "fixed" to use the parlance of our times, vehicle with which to conduct monetary and fiscal policy, now that the actual underlying economy is just as broken. Of course, good of the NYSE to be on top of its own busted mess. Perhaps this means they will not be able to blame the Nasdaq for this particular epic humiliation?

All they are going to do is reverse the trades which hurt their favourite algos.

  "from 9:30:00 to 10:15:00"

So, 45 minutes?

That's 2,700,000,000 micro-seconds in algo-land.  By the time you've review those trades, the machines have turned your portfolio, lunch, and offspring into gray goo.

GLWT -- kthxbi.

They have changed the rules on phsyical delivery of your stock certificate.  you will have to pay a ridiculous fee to have the shares delivered versus maintained in your brokerage account.  They can't hypothicate your stock and make even greater sums.  Call them up and find out what the fee is

That figures.  It's all part of the dream that the "market" can be securitized completely electronically.  This has been the goal all along, eliminate physical ownership so that the whole system can be "controlled."  Pretty soon it will just be illegal to take physical ownership of anything.

I'm interested in learning how to grow weed year round without modern hydroponics. I hope I don't have to spend any time sober after the collapse.

With or without modern hydroponics?  Cause if you meant with...  I'll be releasing a series of videos on modern hydroponics and my two backyard hydroponic greenhouses in the coming weeks.  An interesting topic indeed.

Their goal is to not have it blow up.  In doing so, they will convert it into nothing more than a display for red and mostly green numbers they want you to see.  Dark pools will be the real market.  HFT's skim the difference between the display numbers and the real numbers.


Oh wait, we're already there.  Never mind.  Move along.  And never forget, the SEC is looking out for the little guy.  The little guy will be the one's wearing the target.

We will talk about gold and how nice everyones stack looks.  The nice thing is, the Algo's can't touch the gold that we have in possession.

If they cancel the trades again it will send a perfectly clear message to the markets:  let your algos run wild and don't bother to test them or fix bugs in them, because if they go crazy, the exchanges will be waiting there to make good on your losses.

Cancel the trades...that is IF there were losses to the wrong people involved! If they were up 5%, there would be nothing to even look at.

1) sell off in casino stock "market"

2) sell of in treasury toilet paper = higher rates

3) sell-off in physicals and commodities

Constant growth is not sustainable. Cycles, up and down are natural. Don't fuck with mother nature, let down happen or there will be a price all of us have to pay. This instability is an echo of what is to come. It will get worse and worse more often because they won't allow failure to clear out the underbrush.

IF QE3 today (99% probability = NO)


2) higher oil -> $100 in a week, just in time for "election" = $120

3) higher commodity prices

i would think the QEorganizer would tell brankrupt-bQE to hold off.  QEorganizer told him to print QE1 and QE2.
