Pre-open gold dump, USDJPY pump, check. Opening dump in USDJPY and stocks led by Momos and Biotechs, check. European close marks the bottom, check. EURJPY takes over and ramps stocks back up to highs, check. Fade into close, check. Today was an almost perfect echo [...]

Despite Late-Day Ramp, Stocks Slide As Yield Curve Flattens To 2009 Lows

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 03/24/2014 – 16:09

Despite dismal PMIs from China and USA, stocks managed a miraculous ‘pump’ into the US open only to be unceremoniously dumped very soon after as MoMos and Biotechs had the rug pulled out. Weakness continued down to Nasdaq’s 50DMA (and Biotech’s 100DMA) and stabilized into [...]

Shortly after 3pmET, the S&P 500 was starting to test the day’s lows with a heavy volume down-spike around 1508ET. That, as we know, will never do to maintain the illusion of vigor and excitement over the new Utopia we are living through and so, as [...]

Pump… And Dump, Day 3

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 02/26/2014 14:29 -0500

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 02/25/2014 17:00 -0500

Today’s pump-and-dump that failed to hold the S&P 500 in the green for 2014 was an almost perfect deja vu all over again of yesterday’s. However, today saw a very rapid after-hours 6 point melt-up in S&P 500 futures thanks to a WTF-inspiring collapse in [...]

What Does VIX Know That Stocks Don’t?

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 02/19/2014 12:49 -0500
