I just tune in and what a fall, what in the world happen!!!!!! BTW I don't believe in the error I think like some said somebody came running for damage control.

I believe that been our markets rig and manipulated the control team will fix anything.

Still it was a fall and is matching the real global economy.

1) How does the DJIA drop 500 points in 5 minutes


Two ways:

1. MSM's excuse is that everyone in Wall Street "canceled bids" at the same time.... this was on Bloomberg I heard this.
What a horrific coincidence I say.

2. A single, very large bank either sold off a crap ton of equities to sink the market, to buy it back again at instantly cheaper prices? Or it actually could be a bank going bankrupt, as what happened to Lehman Brothers, which resulted in a massive sell off almost instantaneously (though not as big as this)..



2) How does the DJIA jump 500 points in 2 minutes after that


Well this throws the MSM's excuse under the bridge so to speak.. if it was accidental human error, as they are claiming, how did it rebound?

It could have been one mega player taking the entire indices for a ride, or my personal opinion, the PTP .. the second the markets tanked, someone somewhere started spending billion to inflate the markets..... personally, If one second I see -200 and the next -989 I wouldn't be like "Ooo sweet deals!" .. hell no, I'd try to sell off all I could as fast as I could... then crawl into a corner in the fetal position and cry for a few hours.

There was no error

This was god damn HF's pulling the cords when they knew the most were vulnerable.

NASDAQ is having "conversations".

NYSE is a straight faced liar IMO.

I do not trust NYSE's book and specialists anymore. This is also why many will only daytrade NASDAQ.

This was a TRUE BLACK SWAN EVENT.

But there is something good to come of all this. Everyone is now that much smarter for the future. Which can be priceless in days like today.

A continuing education indeed.

Yeah..

The more I see this play out the more I know that a true syndicate made this happen when the most amount of stops were in play.

I used to respect these guys until I was a victim. Now I just hate them and they owe me a bailout. That or I could gain 15% tomorrow. That would subdue my hate.

My hands are shaking and I honestly felt like someone punched me in the stomach.

My data feed also "coincidentally" collapsed during this time. Yeah right, someone in the NYSE that allowed this syndicate to make this move should be hung outside wall street.

I love your optimism, but in my case I see a big shadow now that will prevail over our US markets for some time.

I been saying for all along we are living in an economy that is nothing but an illusion. . . the biggest ponzi scheme played against the populations of the nations involved . . .

I think somebody wanted for just a second show the rest of the world what US markets truly look like. . .

But then again it just my conspiracy working here.

Citi is the one that they are investigating for the "error"

The Black Swan Theory is used by Nassim Nicholas Taleb to explain the existence and occurrence of high-impact, hard-to-predict, and rare events that are beyond the realm of normal expectations. Unlike the philosophical "black swan problem", the "Black Swan Theory" (capitalized) refers only to unexpected events of large magnitude and consequence and their dominant role in history. Such events are considered extreme outliers.


True true, today was indeed a Black Swan event.
Never heard that saying before lol.

hahah

CITI = US GOVERNMENT

Yeah, I am guessing that is true. I bet we did make that happen.

Talk about a gain on investment in 10 seconds from -1000 to - 400

ES (SP 500 futures) took on 16 billion dollars in less than a handful of minutes.

I now do not blame anyone for thinking this is rigged. This is really a black eye for financial markets IMO.

I am hoping to be proved wrong by regulators in the near future.

Meanwhile, interest rates on Treasurys soared as traders sought the safety of U.S. government debt.

I have to say WOW!

I mean, I knew something was coming, and I was expecting bombs or snipers or something, but this seems to have happened with ''nothing'' to cause it. I am starting to think now that the week of June 20-25 is going to be the BOTTOM of the cycle. It will have to get below 6400 by then. That would be a very fast fall of never before seen proportions.

I don't see how this type of rug-pulling event can not be followed by a wave of massive selling for days and days and days. Do you honestly think people see this type of event, and hear the scary talk on television and radio and internet, and then rush right in to buy? I don't think so. In order to hit bottom in 7 weeks we are going to have to see something extraordinary. We may see bombs or snipers.

We may see Nancy Pelosi remove her facemask!

I agree

I wouldn't have been surprised to watch it go positive

Can you imagine the outcry from all the stopped out whores like me?

I mean I only lost a small percentage..

Think about the people that got stopped out $20/share under their entry in equities

That must REALLY burn right now
