Tyler Durden's picture




 

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

Yes, this is the Russian stock market.

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.

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....

Russian truckers in America? You'd find more American truckers in Russia than the other way round.

Try Russian mobsters in America. Up and down the coast on both sides of the country. Drugs, whores and weapons.

Ever wonder how the Russkis could buy up Florida, Beverly Hills and Monaco in just 10 years time? Yuck.

Hope this means Russian sluts and their pimps will stop buying up Florida beach front condos.

Let's see here, who was the first country to recognize the new Sudan (look what is happening there) and get new agricultural and various other deals, then move along to the Balkans, Georgia and a few other places...

Maybe if you have something planned and are wondering what would happen if the market collapses as a result, if when you do it, you might want to see what happens if the market is gone for a while. Is something more interesting going to happen in Russia? No market for a time being a test run?

Maybe Putin is doing something about what I suspect is going on.
