Volume Surges, 63% Above Average, On Way To Hit 1 Year High, 3 Days Away From All Time Longest Consecutive Down Day Record

Tyler Durden's picture

For all those lamenting the disappearance of stock trading volume in 2011, that would be Goldman Sachs first and foremost if only one of the stocks sold off the most wasn't GS, today you get a reprieve. In anticipation of a 9-th consecutive down day, which will be the longest losing streak since 1978, composite trading volume through 1:00 pm is about 63% above the 30 day moving average, and 30% higher through this time yesterday. Run-rating today's volume over the remaining three hours of trading would imply a whopping 12 billion shares, which would be the highest since June 25, 2010, when 13.9 billion shares traded (the catalyst being the Congressional watering down of the financial reform bill; this time the catalyst is the ending of the Ponzi). Incidentally, the longest losing streak in US markets history is 12 days, recorded in both 1941 and 1968. This means we are just three more days of Eurocontagion from making history.

Meanwhile, in the land of yellow metal...


(Reuters) - Investors who were nervous about the looming debt ceiling showdown poured $3.5 billion in July into exchange-traded funds that own gold, according to fund tracking website IndexUniverse.com.



International Monetary Fund data for June on Wednesday showed Thailand bought gold for the second time this year, raising its reserves by nearly 19 tonnes to over 127 tonnes, while Russia bought another 5.85 tonnes, bringing its reserves to 836.7 tonnes, the world's eighth largest official stash of the metal. So far in 2011, emerging market central banks have bought nearly 180 tonnes of gold, more than double the roughly 73 tonnes purchased by central banks globally in the whole of 2010.

And that would be why the bubble talk is bullshit. Although that may just be my confirmation bias showing.

Left and Right? There's no left and right. There's a left and right illusion. A lot of arm waving and finger pointing, but that's about it.

The two parties differ in, what, 1% of their policies, at best. The 99% is focused on keeping the banker elite on top of the hierarchy.

Both Murray Rothbard and Carroll Quigley have documented this.

BINGO.  it's an illusion to keep the pea brains focus detered from what's really happening.  Just like..911..Norway....JFK....MLK...... and just about everything in between.   Create the Problem, Offer the Solution.  Try it in your own life and you will become your own Genni in a bottle.   You just have to use your brain and think for a bit, most people chose not to do that, it's easier for me too.  Hence we live in a country overrun by a group of people who virtually control what we see, eat, and thus think.  Look at these endless wars I mean come on.

Yes, long potatoes. Good call. Maybe diversify in some other non-cash crops.

Closed my SDS short and bought TBT & GDX.  Just sayin.

Does TBT move up when yields move down or treasury prices?

Mactheknife's picture

TBT moves up when long bond yields move up (price down).

Educate me as to why you bought TBT as opposed to TLT ina risk-off environment?

Am I seeing the beginnings of a parabolic arch being traced out on the 10 day hourly SPY chart ?  Strap in bitches the flush is just a few hours out... or so I'm thinking


Edit: Actually the 15 minute bars show the slow but building arch better.

Reversals, while they can be only temporary, typically occur on high volume...

MoneyWise's picture

This move down based on nothing new, Stocks oversold
Bears will probably try again tomorrow. Nothing extraordinary on the charts as well. Copy of the 2010
drop still more room to move down to around 11370 or so
on the DJI and 11770 on SPY, that's worse case scenario.
To talk about recession, wake me up when OIL hit below $50 and Silver around $20/oz, not going to happened? That's why stocks won't drop too much. Buy the F DEEP.

"Incidentally, the longest losing streak in US markets history is 12 days, recorded in both 1941 and 1968. This means we are just three more days of Eurocontagion from making history."

I just read an article on MarketWatch that said the longest number of down days was 14, that ended on August 13, 1941.

In fact, the all-time record for number of days in a row in which the Dow fell appears to be 14 — a streak that ended on Aug. 13, 1941, as the rumblings of World War II were reverberating through Wall Street.


Stocks headed for the moon in 5,4,3,2,1........

Dow has already gone from -163.4 to -3.94. Green Shoots are asproutin! I don't think we'll make ten days.

Big volume on down days. Little volume on up days.

Sounds like the stock market is getting concentrated into the hands of only major players. The suckers are heading for the exits.

It also sounds like Spring 2008 all over again.

MoneyWise's picture

Excuse me where did you see big volume?
In 2008 Market trading VOL was 3x today volume.
Volume is low. If you think Bernank will watch how
his previous 1T$ QE 1-2 goes down in flames, think
again. I know you guys love to see Market crash, so
your neighbors and friend lose all their money, because
they don't give a jack A$$ about Silver or Gold. :)))
