Not at all messed up.  Jim Cramer says that if it were not for Europe, US Stocks would be at all time highs.

He says USA is in fantastic shape, based on the number of people he sees eating at Chipoltes.

The pattern of the last few weeks looks like a miniature version of what happened last August. Like the algos are using that as a template.

Usually no one writes in the RAN squawk section. I guess everyone was waiting for Tyler to post a blurb on the afternoon ramp.

WTF : If the market opens up dow + 100 pts  it slowly melts up till close.

             If the market opens down -100, it has a 60 % chance of reversing by end of day.


Its fucked up.  Greece , euro implosion and dow 5k cant come soon enough for me- end this fucking game now

It's not a "market" as we used to know it.

Now it's just Hedge Funds and HFT algos pushing each other around.

The "tell" is that the stock of the most "Valuable Company in the World" routinely moves 3%-5% intraday. That is not normal and something that was never seen in the past when it was a "real" market.

Which doesn't mean jack shit if the Germans aren't on board.

The algos don't care about Germans.

the only way to play this market is with tight stops -- but there is money to be made

Oh yes, there is definitely money to be made - but not by you, me or anyone else commenting here.

I've managed to put together a couple of good days in a row ... sold my EUO yesterday, and SKF today before the market melt up (thanks to a tight stop).  I'm not setting the world on fire, but I'm holding my own.

DOW closes down 6.66

Half the people that read this site have just grabbed their 'buggout' bag and headed to an undisclosed location ...

Pissant Pisani going nuts! ..."What a day for the bulls!" - yada yada yada.

I'm glad I do not trade this market.  It drives me nuts just watching it.

Today's action proves that the Magic Market Fairy can fix anything.  If you just close your eyes really tight and  believe with all your might.  Throw those stupid charts, fundamentals and analyses away, Magic Market Fairy has it all under control.

Its amazing that on a big up day- It never ever ever ever ever REVERSES-BUT SLOWLY CREEPS UP.  On a big down day-  go fucking long at lunch time and you could be a hero. It doesnt make sense.

GrinandBearit's picture

Now all you gotta do is trade what doesn't make sense and you'll be rich.

Yep, that noonish decoupling when europe fades along with that 3ish trader blow break works wonders

Pisani is a stupid dick

Rick Santelli for president!

No offense, but this has to be the slowest, most laggy vid stream I've seen in a very long time. Weird.
