Tyler Durden's picture




 

One temporary halt and three delay attempts later, and we get.... this.

Yes, this is the Russian stock market.

Defcon 1?  Are the missles airborne?

Just a technical glitch.  The well-educated Russian IT engineers will have it fixed in no time.

Looks like The Russian MICEX Exchange has been hacked by someone.

What does this mean?  Is this the result of a hack, technical issue or is their market really just having a bad day enough for them to close trading to prevent a collapse?  Nothing in the MSM about any of this yet.

MSM not talking about this?  Should rule out the technical glitch.  How can we rule out the possibility of this being a hack job ?

if the Exchange is running on Microshite servers you can't rule out a hack job as the software is insecure ...you can't rule out viruses, bugs and anything with this garbage monopoly software giant

....Boris is downloading some free avg and spybot software on his 14.4 bps modem to clean the exchange servers.

Seriously, the guys at VTB expect more downtime because of integration problems - remember MICEX recently merged with Moscow rival RTS.

This isn't a hack job, and for the MSM (CNBC didn't make any comment about it) not to say anything about it tells me bundles.  It says that things are starting to fall apart and it's not happening in a controlled fashion anymore.

We can't speak badly of our Russian friends ... they are just having some "teething problems". It's only been 23 years since the [mock] fall of the Soviet Socialist Central Planning Union and a few "misfits" haven't got with the program yet. Putin will sort them out....

Art Ridzik: Captain Danko, congratulations. You are now the proud owner of the most powerful handgun in the world.
Ivan Danko: Soviet Patparine, nine-point-two milimeter, is world's most powerful handgun.
Art Ridzik: Oh, come on, everybody knows the .44 Magnum is the big boy on the block. Why do you think Dirty Harry uses it?
Ivan Danko: Who is Dirty Harry?

I think a country full of sober Russians would bear far more drastic action than a trading halt - The invasion of Ireland would have already begun.

Have you seen the well-to-do, up and down Park Avenue

On that famous thoroughfare, with their noses in the air

High hats and Arrowed collars, white spats and lots of dollars

Spending every dime, for a wonderful time

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to

Why don't you go where fashion sits,

Putin on the ritz.
