Need Dramamine?

The cats over at #ZeroHedge (thx guys!) relay what #Art Cashin of #UBS had to say (need Dramamine?) regarding this market. Via UBS, here is how trader, #Gary Kaltbaum described the market recently.
  1. Crash into early August, then hit a low where market rallied up 10% in six days.
  2. We then dropped about 7% in 3 days.
  3. We then rallied up about 9% in 7 days.
  4. And then in 2 days we dropped about 8%.
  5. In 2 days we rallied up 5.5%.
  6. And then next 2 days we dropped 6%.
  7. And the next 5 days we rallied up 7%.
  8. And the next 3 days we dropped about 9%.
  9. Next, we rallied up about 7%.
  10. The next 4 days we dropped about 10%.Culminating with the wash out on Oct 4.
  11. And then in 5 days we rallied up 11%.
  12. Sat around.had two big gaps into the highs of late August and then we did two big gaps down.
  13. A little rally up.
  14. Another big day down.
  15. Within a day, a gap up. Then another big drop.
  16. Went down about 9% in seven days.
  17. And this week on two days that gapped up, a total of about 640 points.
  18. We finished with a rally this week of 8% and this one was for the books. You couldn't get in because they were gaps.

Wow.

Can you spell high frequency trading robots?

Can you spell a market that only someone trading with someone elses' capital (either investors or taxpayers) could stomach?

Can you spell a broken market?

This is all the fruit we bear from a cronycapitalist, lawless, free for all. Enjoy it while it lasts - and make sure like the elite in charge you get yours while you can - because it can't and it won't.
