Broken VIX Means “Markets Getting Scared”, Group One Says

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 12/16/2014 15:30

We noted earlier the “noise” in VIX. We are starting to get a picture of what’s happening… and it’s not good. As Bloomberg reports, Group One Trading’s Dominic Salvino warns, inputs to the calculation are going skewy on the VIX in the past couple days […]

VIX Spikes Over 16, Biggest 2-Day Surge In 2 Months As Credit Contagion Spreads

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 12/09/2014 11:41

VIX has been unable to make lower lows as stocks made higher highs in recent weeks as it appears managers protected these insane gains of the last few weeks rather than piled in – beta-chase-style – as financial media would have us believe. VIX has broken back […]

ECB Mutiny Sparks Late-Day Selling Scramble As QE Hopes Fade

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 12/04/2014 16:04

Once again the internals of the market (advancers vs decliners, new highs vs new lows and trends) triggered a Hindenburg Omen as today’s dump-and-pump on the European close and Draghi ‘mis-characterization and clarification’ headlines left stock green with an hour to go. Then came headlines from […]

Stocks Close At Recordest Highs Ensuring ‘Confident’ Black Friday, Despite Macro Massacre

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/26/2014 16:04

The S&P 500 closed at new record-er-est highs (a record 29th day above the 5DMA) providing just the right amount of confidence-inspiring ‘wealth creation’ to ensure you spend, spend, spend this weekend all those gas price savings (despite 9 of 9 macro data misses today). Dow […]

US Stocks Surge To ‘Best’ Streak In 86 years

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/24/2014 16:03

The last few weeks have been the strongest and most consistent rallies in US equity market history. US equity markets have traded above their 5-day moving average for 27 days – the longest such streak since March 1928 (h/t MKM’s John Krinsky) and all amid […]

Another Triple-Fat-Finger VIX Day Saves Stocks

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/20/2014 16:25

Ugly data in Asia, Europe, and US PMI meant US equities opened gap-down… that was unacceptable to ‘someone’ and so the “most shorted” names were squeezed. However, after 10 minutes the ramp started to fade… and so the big boys ‘fat-fingered’ VIX and that rescued […]

Fed Warning Sends Small Caps Red For 2014

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/19/2014 16:09

The word “volatile” comes to mind when reflecting on today’s cross-asset class action. US equities dumped into and beyond the US open, decoupling entirely from JPY carry, only to reverse perfectly at the European close and recover all the way back to USDJPY right as the […]

A Triple-“Fat-Finger” VIX Day

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/18/2014 16:23

Unrigged…

Just as stocks dipped after the opening squeeze and as the afternoon began.. and again into the close… VIX was rammed lower in an awkwardly-timed “well it must be a fat finger” trade that sparked a rebound in the all-time-high trending stock market.

Small Caps Slump For 3rd Day – Worst Streak Since “Bullard Lows”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/17/2014 16:03

Overnight weakness from Japan (NKY -3%) and USDJPY slowly leaked away as Europe was bid – bouncing higher on Draghi’s SovQE “whatever it takes” comments (and multiple broken markets), but once he stopped speaking stocks faded to the lows of the day at the European Close. […]

Confidence Guaranteed By A 3:58PM VIX-Slam

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/14/2014 16:28

The initial 330ET ramp took the S&P 500 green for a Friday close – the necessity for confident-spending of all that extra gas-price-cut cash this weekend. But it faded once the initial VIX slam slowed… have no fear… we’ll do it again… VIX was clubbed 0.35 […]

Dollar Dump Sparks Safety Scramble For Bonds & Bullion

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/14/2014 16:05

Stocks were somewhat of a sideshow to the moves in Bonds, commodities, and FX today.Trannies (Airlines) and Nasdaq (AAPL) led on the week with Small Caps the laggard and Dow/S&P not much better. A 6-7bps plunge in yields from around 10am ET today left Treasury yields […]

Oilpocalypse Now Sends Small Caps To Worst Day In 3 Weeks

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/13/2014 16:06

WTI Crude plunged another 3.75% to as low as $74.06 today – the lowest since Sept 2010 and dropping at the fastest rate of collapse since Lehman. Airlines popped and Energy stocks dropped 2.7% (now worst sector of the year) but Small Caps were the […]

Today’s 3:59 PM WTF Moment Of The Day

When you absolutely, completely, undoubtedly need the Dow and S&P 500 to close green at new record closing highs…

Unleash the last second VIX smasher algo…

The first push down with VIX (and thus up with stocks) stalled out ‘alarmingly’ at 1554ET.. and the S&P 500 […]

Trannies Trounce Small Caps As Bullion, Bonds, & Black Gold Get Battered

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/10/2014 16:06

Two words tell you all you need to know about today’s equity trading… no volume (lowest since Aug27th). The main theme of today – away from stock markets – was to unwind some or all of Friday’s moves on the dismal Italy/Greece data: Treasury yields jerked […]

Stocks Surge Back To “Prove” Friday’s Jobs Data Was “Good” After All

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/10/2014 11:48

No news, no catalyst… just a friendly VIX-crushing to lift stocks across the board back into the green from pre-non-fram-payrolls… which ‘proves’ the jobs data was great (despite the Fed’s LMCI saying otherwise). With Europe now closed, let’s see if it holds…

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/04/2014 16:09

It appears the excitment of US midterm election sparked a “sell-everything-American” strategytoday as stocks, bonds, WTI crude, the dollar, Treasuries, and credit all sold off to a lesser or greater amount. Trannies started off liking weak oil prices but faded as WTI could not bounce off […]

Stocks Pump (On ‘Bad’ Data) And Dump (On ‘Good’ Oil Price Cuts)

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/03/2014 16:09

As we noted earlier, something is seriously broken in these ‘markets’ and when the head of Blackrock appears on CNBC and uses the “cash on the sidelines” meme to justify stocks going higher (which is unbridled idiocy remember), we suspect even the big boys are getting […]
