More of the same:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2012-12-13/broken-market-chronicles-part-x1-mornings-multi-symbolic-flash-crash

there were numerous algo-inspired flash-crashes this morning right before the open... HPQ (traded down to $3 from $14 in about 100ms), S (from $5.50 to $2.75 in 150ms), GS (from $117 to $94 in 45ms) and C (from $36.00 to $20.00 in 90ms) are among the NOT fat-finger moves we saw as the charts below show.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2012-12-14/momentum-ignition-markets-parasitic-stop-hunt-phenomenon-explained

Credit Suisse ...released a report titled "High Frequency Trading - Measurement, Detection and Response" in which the firm - one of the biggest flow and prop traders by equity volume in both light and dark venues - ... [stated] that  high frequency trading [HFT] is a predatory system which abuses market structure and topology, which virtually constantly engages in such abusive trading practices as the Nanex-branded quote stuffing, as well as layering, spoofing, order book fading, and, last but not least, momentum ignition.

But 70% of the bots control 99% of the quotes, what could go wrong?

Putting everything else aside...

That the markets rely so heavily on the action of jackass politicians who can't blanace a budget (or even make one), can't stop spending and can't raise taxes fast enough...ought to augment the deep concern everybody should have in even participating in these rigged circuses!

Crap, I just reread this, this is the move,
they are going to own us.  This move illustrates
the difference between a third world shark sucker
and a shark.  Way to go slick, save us again.

All competition to and hinderences of orchestrated activity is to be destroyed.

The puppetmasters know their efforts must end in nothing but total control over all information, all resources, all prices, all demand...everything.

We are witnessing the prelude to the big finale.

Good God, CO, that made my stomach turn! I mean, literally, like a shot in the gut. These people are serious about their power-play.

And when that wave crashes...

[blockquote] (Reuters) - The New York Stock Exchange is readying plans to be able to operate without human traders in case another disaster, such as Superstorm Sandy, forces the shutdown of its historic trading floor in downtown Manhattan, The Wall Street Journal reported.
[/blockquote]

Getting those pesky people out of the way and taking
more direct control of the market would suit his
highness just fine.  A weather event would provide
a perfect scenario for an intervention.

You like numbers?  Yeah, I do, and these kind of breakdowns always put a good perspective on how truly fvcked we are!  Too many of us allowed them to get away with it too, but that bill will be paid in due course.

The following is the global financial pyramid scheme by the numbers...

-$9,283,000,000,000 - The total amount of all bank deposits in the United States.  The FDIC has just 25 billion dollars in the deposit insurance fund that is supposed to "guarantee" those deposits.  In other words, the ratio of total bank deposits to insurance fund money is more than 371 to 1.

-$10,012,800,000,000 - The total amount of mortgage debt in the United States.  As you can see, you could take every penny out of every bank account in America and it still would not cover it.

-$10,409,500,000,000 - The M2 money supply in the United States.  This is probably the most commonly used measure of the total amount of money in the U.S. economy.

-$15,094,000,000,000 - U.S. GDP.  It is a measure of all economic activity in the United States for a single year.

-$16,749,269,587,407.53 - The size of the U.S. national debt.  It has grown by more than 10 trillion dollars over the past ten years.

-$32,000,000,000,000 - The total amount of money that the global elite have stashed in offshore banks (that we know about).

-$50,230,844,000,000 - The total amount of government debt in the world.

-$56,280,790,000,000 - The total amount of debt (government, corporate, consumer, etc.) in the U.S. financial system.

-$61,000,000,000,000 - The combined total assets of the 50 largest banks in the world.

-$70,000,000,000,000 - The approximate size of total world GDP.

-$190,000,000,000,000 - The approximate size of the total amount of debt in the entire world.  It has nearly doubled in size over the past decade.

-$212,525,587,000,000 - According to the U.S. government, this is the notional value of the derivatives that are being held by the top 25 banks in the United States.  But those banks only have total assets of about 8.9 trillion dollars combined.  In other words, the exposure of our largest banks to derivatives outweighs their total assets by a ratio of about 24 to 1.

-$600,000,000,000,000 to $1,500,000,000,000,000 - The estimates of the total notional value of all global derivatives generally fall within this range.  At the high end of the range, the ratio of derivatives to global GDP is more than 21 to 1.

Are you starting to get the picture?

There is no way that the global financial pyramid scheme is going to be able to hold up for too much longer.  At some point it is going to totally collapse.  When that happens, will you be ready?

Maybe the reason they haven't used the WMD is because they realize that even the rich will be affected, and you might as well squeeze out as much high times good fun as you can before the end.

YOUR SCARY ASS CHART OF THE DAY, plus a question:



Quote
“If consumers, who account for 71% of the economy, aren’t spending, and small business owners, who do 65% of all the hiring in the country, are petrified with insecurity, why is the stock market hitting all-time highs and the corporate media proclaiming happy days are here again?”

Inflation hedge.  WalMart survives inflation.  Grandma's $25,000 nest egg doesn't.

Why is the market hitting highs?

The Fed, of course!  Ctrl-P to infinity, and beyond!
