Quote Stuffing Surges As If On Demand As Market Touches Intraday Lows

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As the market dips to intraday lows, quote stuffing spikes as if on demand. Now the only question is did the market drop because of the spike in empty packets, or vice versa... We have an idea or two. So does Nanex. But not the SEC. Definitely not the SEC.

Update: another huge spike as we take out the bottom decisively:

Boom goes the dynamite, bitches!!!

(First time I've seen the USD near parity with the CAD in A LONG TIME, too).

A special treat for ZH - young The Bernank as a blossoming sportscaster:

Boom Goes the Dynamite

 

Bonus, just for all the Mr. Margins out there:

The SEC is like BigFoot. There have been sightings but no proof of existence.

Really dumb question, but what is quote stuffing?  How does it work?

That is absolutely not a dumb question.

I come to ZH because it's the only place in my life where I don't get blank stares when I mention things like 'quote stuffing'.

If there is anybody here who moves in circles where so many as 10% of their friends have ever heard of quote stuffing....I wish I could move there. 

Galt's Gulch, maybe.

Ummm, there are legions of lurkers who are acquainted with said terminology but dont feel comfortable using it as it makes them feel like they are posturing as broker pros, etc.

You are not so alone as you seem to think.

Seeing C scroll across the ticker at $28 and change makes me realize something. 

Instead of QE3, they should just wait until the market drops about 35% more and then 1/100 reverse split all stocks.  Presto!  Brand new highs! 

Honestly that's incredible that C is down below $30 even after a 1/10 reverse split.  How pathetic can this get?

down over 400 points isn't it about time for zh's resident genius world's worst trader to post something along the lines of the tick is down a kajillion, and it's the buying opportunity of a lifetime, which of course, he has no intention of taking advantage of since he's still too busy processing the same 1099 he processed last week for the bank.

If a penny saved is a penny earned, I earned big bucks today.  Bright spot.

the "bright spots in the day" were just the migraine-induced visual hallunications of people invested in equities.

Call me crazy, but I recall that market manipulation was illegal.  Do they just not care about that anymore?  Is that legal so therefore everyone can now engage in market manipulation?
