The Volume Speaks Volumes... Again

Tyler Durden's picture

The levitation resumes. And as expected, the second this happens the volume divergence from average goes red. Good to see that no matter how big of a beating they experience, the robots will always be here, apocalypse or shine. In the meantime, the carbon-based whales are sitting on the sidelines until 2:15 pm. Anything less than the expected from the gospel of St. Chairsatan will promptly push the volume bar from red to green, and the direction of stocks (inversely) appropriately.

It's all on the Chairsatan this afternoon. The wrong statement and it's DOW 10k here we come. There may be a sell the news event anyway at 2:15. I'm sure the boyz have already been tipped off as to what is coming.

I wonder what GS did to anger the Fed?  Everybody is posting perfect trading quarters, then boom, GS has a nasty Q2 trading quarter.  Now, with lots of funny money coming in to hold up the markets, and especially the Financials, GS doesn't get any sugar.

Either they played to fast and loose with futures, thereby creating too much inflation and endangering the can kicking.  Or, more likely, they bought way more than their allotted amount of gold and pushed up the price on everyone else.  Since gold just ramped strongly, my guess would be the later.

Its all theatre meant to divert attention/anger.

which raises an interesting question.  what exactly does the chairsatan and his overlords seek to accomplish?  recovery, or destruction?  if the goal is for the banker cabal to acquire assets on the cheap, no real mystery what type of announcement we will get this afternoon.

Long-John-Silver's picture

A resumption of money printing which will be QE3 but they will have created another name for it.

hedgeless_horseman's picture

what exactly does the chairsatan and his overlords seek to accomplish?

Keep sovereign debt and associated interest payments flowing and growing; aka privatize gains and socialize losses; aka debt slavery for the proles; aka situation normal. 

Who is going to stop their EHM and their invincible goliath The Federal Reserve? 

No man can, so we wait on Mother Nature and live off of a few scraps.

john39's picture

probably right, but, at some point they will close the noose.   and at that point, a market crash allows them to buy or acquire on the cheap.  are we there yet?

NotApplicable's picture

Controlled/Selective destruction in areas where the overlords can scoop up the scraps. Kinda like making lemonade out of other people's lemons.

Because in 1913 evil men began to work in secret to change the way the world trades and how money and credit moves. Then they stirred the pot with two world wars and then began to feed the educated western world a slow, measured anesthesia of false wealth. They turned us away from everything good, and helped us to focus on materialism as our god. They created a false, Ponzi "heaven on earth" called "the American Dream". Then they usurped the US Constitution and wrote countless crooked regulations, and stuck countless corrupt deals to enrich themselves. We failed to protest some things because they were hidden, and we failed to protest the visible things because we didn't want to endanger the small measure of "prosperity" we were allowed to have.

And thus, a few gained too much power. Thus, we are completely jacked.

I don't recall being given the option. (In the US you can vote for your preference of elephant-with-buck-teeth-&-donkey-ears or donkey-with-tusks-anna-trunk; here in the UK we get to pick our favourite colour of Thatcherite: red, blue or yellow.)

Actually that's probably a little unfair.

It's really more of a yellowey-orange.

Bernanke would have to deliver spectacular news that blows the pants off everyone watching and leaves them floored by the stupendous grandeur of Bens announcement....and the way these things have been going lately up to Obama total faceplant yesterday, Im not holding my breath for the star studded gala event of Bens little talk this afternoon.

Probably be a bunch of Glodilocks bullcrap.

Cleanclog's picture

Think the Bernank might intone that there will be no "saving" of TBTF shareholders and bondholders this time.  Deposits safe, banking services and real estate to be moved to other names, but will not "save" the owners.  That would inspire confidence in me!

Really dont see how QE3 or somethign similar can happen today! Really! :)))

SheepDog-One's picture

It wont. Get out the DOW 8K hats, we're nowhere near any fear and panic time. All this bulltard talk about how we lost 1,000 DOW points so here comes the free money train again is pure BS.

dark pools of soros's picture

nah - they want to keep propping it up to show how central planning 'works' (at least for them) so this will be a quick panic and back to petting the sheep


when it really falls there won't be this much theater...  


SheepDog-One's picture

But everyone knows it does not work, QE deemed 'failures' by everyone...who exactly are they fooling? This is called 'denial' plain and simple.

dbach's picture

I'm with you SheepDog, maybe this will a be carbon copy of the (at first) failed TARP bailout bill. Everyone just sitting around, mouth agape. Awesome!

tmosley's picture

Maybe it will, maybe it won't.  There is no way to accurately predict the future actions of a small number of irrational people.

Greater Fool's picture

Zero chance that the Fed takes this opportunity to remind everyone that they will let the devil take the hindmost. Expecting lukewarm language today, nothing like what the market hopes for, and a selloff similar to the one after the Intoner-in-Chief's remarks yesterday. But of course anything can happen at this point.

NotApplicable's picture

Well, he certainly will choose a different name, but I'm sure he will try to provide reassurance with certain loaded phrases. *know what I mean, wink wink, nudge, nudge*

slaughterer's picture

There will be perhaps one phrase in the FOMC announcement today that will suggest that QE3 will possibly be implemented if some economic condition is satisfied.    Then Wall Street will push the markets to satisfy that condition.  Until then, bear market.

Yes, I cannot remember seeing real lasting bottoms ever form in the over night session. My guess is a day or two maybe before it slams down on (or through) your number. Any meaningful turn should involve a complete reversal in the same day (say 500 down, 1000 up) for rally to last more than a few weeks. jmho.

DING-DING-DING: gold reached parity with platinum earlier today.

Dunno what it means. But 'overbought' is one theory that comes to mind. 

SheepDog-One's picture

But it wont look overbought at all when gold is $2,500 in a couple months.

Ive been hearing 'Uh oh, looks like gold is extremely overbought' since $500.

Greater Fool's picture

From the standpoint of intrinsic value, gold has never made much sense to me. But as a hedge against long-term equity losses, it performs par excellence and I will not be reducing my position at this point, that's for sure.

Hugh_Jorgan's picture

It seems to me that you have no understanding of "why" gold is where it is...

What are you talking about? NYSE total volume is a high as it was yesterday at this time.

DUH -- the chart is for the ES futures, not the NYSE.
