DJIA @ close:

10520.32 -347.80 (-3.20%)

Some may call it a recovery. But it's still a bloodbath.


I say we send GBM the forms & just waive the fee...

I don't use stops anymore. Not even for a profit target. I just let it blow with the wind. You know how the FX will jump up 100 pips and then down 200 pips and then turn and go back up 300 pips when they make some interest rate announcement? Stops are for suckers.

And check out Marketwatch Bigcharts Dow chart. Between 2:45 and 3:00 there is just a dotted line like they lost all data or something. This was an awesome market breakdown!

You seem to have fancier programs than I, I only use my brokers site .. is there any way of actually seeing who sold off that big dip, and then who bought in?

Yes

I will have this information when I can find it.. it is going to take a while for me to get it

It will NOT have WHO, but it will show volume (and time)

Just heard some NYSE stocks traded prints at 0.

SP 500 Futures were DOWN OVER 100 POINTS for 1 second

____________________________

When I can find the T&S I will post


WE WERE VERY CLOSE TO HITTING THE LIMIT LOCK IN THE DOW OF -1100

Can you imagine where we would open back up?

Could have been 8-9000 even..

FX is crazy right now.. Im thinking about closing everything but am salivating at a whipsaw to profit on

NYSE Euronext Says There Were ’A Number of Erroneous Trades’



By Elizabeth Stanton

May 6 (Bloomberg) -- NYSE Euronext said “there were a number of erroneous trades” during an almost 1,000-point plunge in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

“There were a number of erroneous trades,” said NYSE spokesman Rich Adamonis. “Our guys just told me Nasdaq is investigating the erroneous trades. What happened today in P&G for instance, the bad print was on Nasdaq, not here,” he said, referring to a 37 percent plunge in Procter & Gamble Co.

The Nasdaq said it is investigating the plunge.

hummm.....

Fact or Fiction?


just reported sources are telling it that a trading error, a human error, at a major firm, (the trader typed in "b" instead of "m") caused the Dow Jones to fall through the 10,000 floor. A CNBC reporter said that it appears it was a financial derivatives trade. If this turns out to true, there will be a lot of gnashing of teeth over this one

I agree

Although unfortunately my programs are quasi high frequency and I don't have that luxury.

Try getting ripped for 40 pip spreads 4x in a row before you can turn your head..

You could have easily gotten liquidated as well if you were highly leveraged in seconds.. so double edged sword

I do have the luxury though of getting clipped like hell apparently haha

I understand, GMB. I know you want to make the automatic ATM so you have to be ready to trade every second. I hope you do make it. I hope you create your iMoney.

About the ''mistake'' trade that caused people to lose billions.... LOL!! Good luck getting the money back. It is going to be a nasty show of finger pointing and anti-capitalism for days.

It's not every second, but it is tick charts so I really don't have a true linear time luxury. That is how it can go from good to bad in under seconds..

Also..


FAX on the AMEX went to 0.01 at 2:47
RDN on the NYSE went to 0.01 at 2:46

I only lost 3 weeks of profits.. jeez

haha

But like I said earlier this is a priceless learning opportunity and nothing like this will happen again to my programs thankfully.

So I guess a cheap lesson in some forms.

I bought 4500 shares of SIRI at .88 and will sell at 1.15 and make a cool $$ amount.

I was watching market while this was going on and watched my MOT and a few other stocks I have go down...and went right to SIRI and bought at a long time low.

You just got to play the hedge game.
