CNBC Covers High Frequency Trading, Misses The Ball While Maintaining Their Streak of Mis-Information

October 9, 2011 by CalConfidence   Comments (0)

Source: NANEX - "Equity Quote Saturation"
CNBC mentions nothing about the money being lost to HFT or the manipulation that is costing investors purchasing power or Net Asset Value depreciation, only the loss of "confidence" and "fairness", two things that went out the window once I first saw Nanex rebuke the SEC claims.  Good thing their are fines to those who manauplate the prices but who is receiving the money?  The SEC for their increased Brazzers subscription?  I didn't receive a check for compensation because of losses incurred in my 401 (k) from the manipulation from HFT (side note: No one else would ever mange my money, I do it all myself and if you this read this post, you'll see I've found away to work around HFT).  See, we have inept regulators.  These guys can't get their heads out of their asses and finally CNBC release some information that Zero Hedge, Themis Trading, & Nanex have addressed months ago and it is this, "Perhaps regulators’ biggest worry is over the unknown dynamics of the computerized stock market world that the firms are part of — and the risk that at any moment it could spin out of control".  And there you have it.  The regulators have no idea of the dynamics of computerized stock market trading, good thing they decided to permit it in markets before having an understanding of the dynamics it would create, f__king morons.  You'll see a mention on what happened during the market close a few days ago and you can gleam some insight here.  I should warn you too, you are about to here the same horse shit excuse that liquidity is added, spreads are closer and costs for trading are lower.  OH REALLY!!  It is this type of reporting and misinformation that makes viewers of CNBC total f__king idiots.  For the most part, this network has no idea what it speaks of, except for the off chance they decided to act as the Warren Buffett PR team or in the case of Steve Liesman, the Ben Bernanke PR Team.

Everyone Should Have A Magic 8-Ball

October 9, 2011 by CalConfidence   Comments (0)

This afternoon heavy sellers entered into the market.  Using HFT Alert Pro and HFT Alert charting we can observe the spike in the HFT Algo sequences, per second, across 15 exchanges, in real-time.  The predominate spike came on the NASDAQ which #NanexLLC twittered was delayed by nearly a second.  These are the benefits of HFT Alert Pro and HFT Alert.  Using both platforms at once allows me to zoom on a 10 minute time frame and also have a visual for the entire day so I can keep the movements in perspective (think of a Daily stock chart along with a intra-day chart).

Take Shelter

October 9, 2011 by CalConfidence   Comments (0)

You better prepare your shelter.  This storm is about to get heavy.  We all knew this was going to come upon at some point.  If an asset is toxic enough to poison a bank, then a whole group of them is enough to poison a country.  World governments have willfully bought terrible assets (basically pissed away other peoples money) and now they are stuck with no way of getting help.  The game of "hide-the-debt" is coming to a head.  You better prepare yourself.  Those who are caught off guard will have trouble trying to dump bad assets and buy goods ones.  Most alert players began this process years ago.  The greed of small investors will be their downfall.  The desire to make 40% on basic equity investments will blind them to negative news that should be given a premium.  Financial markets are uncertain, jittery, rigged, and drying up.  With each passing week it becomes harder and harder to trade/use paper currency, especially when many of us expect its value to literally disappear overnight.  Anyone with money in the game stands to be like Dick Fuld in the sense that he watched his paper wealth disappear.  Investors need to pick up real assets.  Turn the fake paper into something real.  I'm convinced that we are in a recession.  Speaking with investors yesterday at the office led to this conclusion as I reviewed charts in the morning and prepared.  Zero Hedge posted some sobering charts and here an extension to that list:

Nothing To See Here, Move Along

October 9, 2011 by CalConfidence   Comments (0)

I'm not even going to waste time with humorous sentences or a big intro.  I just want you to pull a Yahoo chart for today and look at the price movement.  Does the chart make you think that it was traders, worldwide, pilling into Yahoo?  Or could it be something perhaps a little more sinister?

Basically, HFT Alert is the most incredbile platform I've dealt with.  Here is what happened to Yahoo today from 14:45:00 to 14:54:00.  Everything started to go berserk on HFT Alert Pro, the flashing caught my eye and I followed this one closely, trying to understand how everyone and their mother stands to be a buyer of Yahoo's firm
