that thing widened big time before compressing. ouch.
Yeap, need balls that big to be trading in this kind of wind...
This one was worth it just for the sake that ZH called so many times before.
Having fun playing along, but I don't know if my blood pressure can keep taking this especially since I have to keep asking what the various indices mean, just glad I bought more gold and silver in the recent dip. Should I stop hedging at this point and just be playing risk indices? It seems like a by-product of the algo trading is a "free-inductive-decay-like" patterns showing up in many indices (similar to the mathmatical model for decay that you get when you pluck a guitar string). So remind me, what do these indices represent again?
Organic balls taking the other side of the trade against Skynet ? Hasta la vista, baby. Kiss them good-bye. Fight algo with algo. Nanomorph "balls" of mimetic poly-alloy will ensure the trading edge.
If I'm reading the chart right, they put the trade on at +15 and it widened to over 60 before coming all the way back in to parity. Nice trade, but ouch is right on the intermediate pain.
I'm reminded of the John Maynard Keynes classic that "Markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent."
it is called a short squeeze. then rebuy shorts!!!!!!
Don't get your ding-a-ling caught in that!!
can we hope europe will abandon the useless Euro and go back to reality or do we seriously have to relinquish all hope for a better society rid of banksters and corrupt politicians, no pensions, no real currencies, only debt and crying babies!!!
No ... We have about 3 talking heads promoting closer integration, United states of Europe etc. etc and they have the nerve to suggest that the citizens will understand ..lol
Yeah, anyone stuck with that one probably needs a bucket of Regain...and a course of hormone replacement therapy.
zero hedge is like porn for the bears
they just can't get enuff
In this giant shit storm of an economy coupled with a completely rigged market, I don't think it's porn...it's reality.
Only people who've bought the Ponzi could view ZH as bear porn. ZH is an expose of the central banker Ponzi scheme mixed with the best elements of "Saturday Night Live" and "Jackass". ZH is a voice of Reality mocking our collective Ignorance and Supplication to pathological Greed.
It looks like the term "bear porn" set off a few sensitive people. Zero Hedge is the only place the public can find "bad news", and lots of it, when it is happening. I find all the rainbows and unicorn news on CNBC absolutely criminal/reprehensible. That bank apologist Cramer is a real manipulative tool.
And gay porn is like ZH for bulls.
zh might have a bearish lilt......but if would b so kind as 2 demonstrate in bullet points all the good news circling the globe i will be happy to push in lost of euro/dollar/assorted peso's into global equities......p.s. central bank market humping will not be an acceptable bullish indicator....ty
That money you gave me when I sold you the triple-levered Russell @ 860 a couple months ago wanted me to tell you hi
good thing zh operates accrual accounting. the running mtm on this baby would have been a tad scary
No country for small children... or old men who answer to risk "supervisors"
Anyone without balls clanging around their ankles should definitely stay on the sidelines. My only concern with being short here is the counterparty risk. It's predetermined that this bitch is going down (interspersed with some huge short covering rallies between here and the bottom), but will anyone be there to pay for closing the borrow?
You guys obviously should charge for this. I get it that you clearly run this site for a higher purpose than fiat accumulation, and at the same time my inner capitalist feels badly that so much value is provided at no cost.
Ah well, you have become a market mover now and alas no doubt do profit.
Fine work. Very fine work.
(thanks for the retard enabling spell check too).
Zero Hedge a market mover? I think not.
This site is a WEALTH of information and keeps the true market(s) reality in focus.
The info and commentary are VERY MUCH appreciated.
Thank you Tyler.
Spot gold back over $1,900
time to buy stocks?
Uh-Oh, PPT just bought futures. Look at 'em run!
Italy 10 yr spread is only about 20 points away from previous financial crisis high.
Just cover. It's going down. September will be epic. The swans are tired.
I may have missed a few lessons here.
what is the .context custom index made of? thx

Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.
I'm calling shenanigans on this one. While technically it did finially compress. Anyone who trades the ES and has any disicpline would never hold a short and let it go 50 points against them. This risk spread is usually spot on, but I'm calling BS this time.
Options dude. Options.
Should we expect the risk spread to stay diverged for longer periods in the future?
100%? thats a little strong isnt it?
how about 99%.
All of these risk spread trades have been winners, so yeah, 100%.
Who is the dude with 1000 TZA shares? Nice!
ZH Tylers have more brains and balls than those f**king elitists and bedmate banksters on the Street.
Now let's see how the SEC buffons handle their new HFT homework assignment, and what they plan to meaningfullly do about it. (if anything).
The US Fed, all their institutions together with their EU cronies won't be able to put Humpty together again.
TG for gold and silver. Keep it physical. Every lit bit helps squeeze the bastards/
