Manic-Buying Turns To Panic-Selling As 'Illiquid' Stocks Plunge To 5-Month Lows

Manic-Buying Turns To Panic-Selling As 'Illiquid' Stocks Plunge To 5-Month Lows

Tyler Durden's picture



Just as we warned, liquidity was incomprehensibly low today (below normal pre-market levels during the peak of the trading day) and the intraday whipsaws were meteoric as a closed cash bond market enabled the slightest twitch in USDJPY to send S&P algos into conniptions. Biotech crashed. Trannies were ripped ridiculously higher at the open - then collapsed into correction (-11% from highs); US Airlines have fallen for 6 straight days, crashing 17%(with today's 7% plunge - driven by chatter over airborne Ebola - its biggest in over years). Tresury futures implied a notable drop in yields across the curve (10Y -7bps at 2.21%, 30Y 2.97%, and 5Y 1.45%). The USdollar closed -0.33% led by EUR and JPY strength (but AUD surged 1% extending gains after China data).  Gold ($1234), Silver, and copper all gained on the day as WTI fell once again (despite some intraday strength in the middle of the day). Stocks "flash-crashed" on very heavy volume in the last 30 mins with VIX breaking above 24 (highest in 16 months). All major equity indices are now below their 200DMA with the worst 3-day loss since late 2011.


Liquidity was simply not there - but but but HFTs?
Which meant - just as we warned - epic whipsaws in stocks...

This Is What Happens When Someone Is Desperate To Sell $750 Million Of Stocks

This Is What Happens When Someone Is Desperate To Sell $750 Million Of Stocks

Tyler Durden's picture

 
At 1532ET today (Columbus Day - with half the market absent), someone - apparently having waited to see if the almost 'ubiquitous' 330pm Ramp would occur - decided it was time to dump three-quarters of a billion dollars notional of US equity market exposure in 1 second. The results of this forced liquidation (or utter disregard for fiduciary duty) were as follows...

A complete collapse of all liquidity in the S&P 500 e-mini futures contract - the world's most liquid equity exposure vehicle...


An instantaneous 9 point plunge in the S&P 500...

And total chaos in the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) which saw offers below bids for what is hours to liquidity-providing HFTs (who appeared to step away for coffee)...
This chart shows just 1 second of SPY trading (corresponding to the volume spike above)

As Nasdaq quotes fell dramatically behind reality...

Given that NYSE margin debt at record highs and investor net worth at record lows...

The vicious cycle feedback from any extended push lower on liquidations is more than a little concerning (and may well explain the aggressive VIX buying today - and massive inversion of the VIX term structure)

Benjamin Fulford – 10/13/2014. Do top Western leaders work for hostile aliens or are they just evil?


The views below are solely Benjamin Fulford's.  There's a lot of data in this one but like with any post use your own inner discernment.  This blog does not advocate killing anyone, Source is doing quite a nice job enforcing the energetic changeover from the current systems and is actively retiring many of the elite family leaders from this planet.  But you probably won't hear much about that until they no longer control the news media.  We also know there are children of the elite families working to end the current systems.  You can make no blanket statements about any group of humans. -AK


Do top Western leaders work for hostile aliens or are they just evil?

What passes as the leadership of the Western world, especially the United States, is acting in such a stupid and downright evil manner that we have to ask the question of who they really work for. As this article is being written, the secret government of the West is continuing to spread bio-weapons, yet again threatening nuclear terror, trying to start World War 3 in the Middle East or Europe and otherwise behaving like a bunch of psychopaths.

Then there is what appears to be some sort of secret weather warfare going on. As this story goes to press, supposed super typhoon Vongfong

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/japan-braced-for-super-typhoon-vongfong-as-pictures-taken-from-space-show-strength-of-hurricane-9788074.html

is directly over Tokyo and yet it is hardly even raining and there is no wind. A look at the Japanese infrared and visual weather satellite photographs of this typhoon over the past 48 hours show some very unnatural goings on. On the one hand the typhoon seems to be hit with pockets of cold dry air, causing it to break up, then, there are unnatural pulses of ultra-hot plasma appearing in the infrared photographs causing the storm to gather strength. In the end, though, whatever forces were turning the super-typhoon into ordinary rain clouds have prevailed and Tokyo is just fine.

Whoever or whatever was responsible for these goings on were clearly not connected with our visible governments. Nor do we appear to be dealing with normal weather patterns. Certainly the forecasters have been dead wrong for all the recent typhoons despite a very good historical track record.

It is also clear from other goings on that the official governments of the world have little real power or clue to what is really going on. This was shown at the G20 finance ministers meeting held last week in Australia. The representatives of a group of countries that account for 85% of world GDP called for $1 trillion a year in infrastructure funding

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/world/2014-10/12/c_133709780.htm

but apparently did not have the authority to make such funding available. Neither does the IMF, the supposed pinnacle of the world financial system. It has been reduced to begging.

So What is Agape? Join the Quest, Day 1



This Quest, in the strictest definition, is not really a Quest at all. For a “Quest” is defined as “a search or pursuit in order to find or obtain something”. You don't have to “find” agape as much as allow it to be seen. You don't need to “obtain” agape either – it is not “obtainable”.

Agape is the physical manifestation of truth. Agape is Source personified. Agape resides in the deepest, truest part of you. It is your beginning. It is something you already have, and therefore not “gettable”.

So, we are technically on a Quest for something we own; something we are. Maybe what's going on here is merely semantics. Perhaps we need a re-definition of Agape.

Agape feels like acceptance. It looks like peace. It is a recognition of your heart. Agape is comforting, inclusive and allowing. It gives permission. Agape unconditionally adores. Agape loves every nook and cranny of you.

Agape sees a mountain ahead and envisions only the wild trip downhill; feeling joy and anticipation. Agape notices the absence of a person or thing and wishes him, her or it a fond farewell; knowing that energy of any kind is not ever “gone” on this eternal ride. Then, Agape wonders who or what will show up next to fill the void. Life is like that always.

Agape greets you with a smile every time. There is no circumstance that will change Agape's joy at seeing you again. Harsh words, time or distance do not alter Agape. It is a force, and as such, unshakable.

We are so very much human. Our days are spent dealing with how we feel and look, what we “have to do”, who we are with and what they said or might say. Beneath all of that, we are the force of Agape – albeit unrecognized.

Agape doesn't take away the argument you just had or the hurt you may feel – it puts it in perspective. We are sourced from love, and clothed in ego.

For this coming week/Quest, we'll look at how to recognize Agape. It is everywhere. We've spent our lifetime looking at everything else, as if it was all that mattered. Billboards, apps and social media shout constantly. “Do you have this disease?” “Is he cheating on you?” “Do you want the perfect body?” “Are you happy/angry/active/beautiful enough?”

Your ego self can answer these questions yet none of these will ultimately satisfy you. The answers will not bring happiness, satisfaction or fulfillment that is lasting. Your ego self is not offended by these assumptions about you – but your sovereign self is. You are so much more than you know. Your sovereign self knows the core of you; recognizing that therein dwells all things of relevance.

We are on this Quest to draw out our Sovereign Self. He/she is found in the recognition of Agape in every facet of life. There is a great deal of NOISE we'll have to ignore to hear him or her. Yet she is there and he is waiting with open arms and giant grins. It is you.

You are the One you've been waiting for.
See you tomorrow.




Aisha North: A short update on the energies - October 13, 2014


A short update on the energies
October 13, 2014
by Aisha North

The adjustments that have been undertaken recently will help to bring you all up to par as it were with the continuation of incoming energetic fluctuations, and so, even if some of you will still feel some temporary physical setbacks as the full scope of these energetic encodings enter your being, you will soon find yourself emerging from the fog as it were in every sense of the word. You see, as the ongoing inoculation if you will will continue to increase not only in magnitude but also in velocity, you will also continue to increase your abilities to incorporate them at an ever increasing speed. For now there is no holding back this flow of endless illumination, and so, as you continue to take in more of these energized particles with literally every breath you take, you are also in a continuous flow of expansion and eviction. In other words, as you continue to grow with this flow, you also continue to exhale whatever it is that your body has been holding on to, the detritus to use a familiar word of your former existence, and this will continue to exit your physical vehicle.

This process in itself is not without its interesting side effects as some of you may be able to testify to, for it will at times feel as if you have been running a marathon or moving a mountain during your sleep. And in many ways, this is actually what you have been doing, as you are all doing a formidable work of lightening your load in this way. And so, as day follows night and in the blink of an eye seems to be followed by a new day, this process continues to speed up exponentially, and you can almost be likened to shooting stars now by the amount of debris that glitters in your wake. For if you could see this from our perspective, you would see yourself as a shining pinprick of light gathering speed, while a trail of glimmering stardust shimmers in your wake as you continue to separate yourself fully from your old being.

Again, this process is something that has not been done before, for unlike others going through a similar process of upscaling their energetic vibrational field, you are doing so while fully immersed within a physical body. And so, you are truly the brightest stars on the firmament in every sense of the word, and you are also the ones who have been chosen for this very task by your abilities to fly as high as you are doing. For this is not something that is taken on by chance, but by a divine design, a design that you yourselves have been instrumental in putting together.

So again we say know that all is well, and you are fanning the flames of your booster rockets even as we speak, the better to accelerate your speed even more as this week continues to supply you with even more fuel for your engines, and so, all you have to do, is to allow that old field of dust that is still trailing in your wake to finally let go completely from your field. For even if this evacuation process of the old is beautiful to behold, and the detritus from it can be mesmerizing to observe, it is also of the greatest importance that you do not let yourself fall for the temptation to crane your neck and look behind you too much. For what you need to do, is to focus on the horizon ahead, and the more you continue to look backwards, the more tempestuous your journey will be.

In other words, let yourself fly away from the old and focus your inner vision on what lies ahead, not on those shimmering and alluring glimpses of your past. For they will only serve to slow you down, and remember the incoming shower of sparks will only serve to push you that much harder if you are facing in the wrong direction. So give yourself the leeway you need in order to let bygones be bygones, and set your sight on the uncharted territory that awaits ahead, ready for you to come and reclaim it. For it may seem unfamiliar to you at the moment, but the space that awaits you is more familiar to you than what you can envisage at this time, for it is indeed the primordial sea of energetic potential that beckons ahead, a place you used to know like the back of your hand, and a place that is so eager to welcome you back home into it.

And so, the more you let yourself forget what is trailing in your wake, the sooner it will let go completely from your sphere of influence, and the faster and lighter your journey forwards and upwards will be. So let go, and let the flow of incoming light continue to push you in the back so you can get reunited with that former version of you, the pure one, the all-encompassing one, the one that is devoid of inhibitions, limitations and lies, the ones that is pure and simple light and potential, but this time, it will be all this and it will be held within this familiar container you call your body. And that dear ones, is the goal you are aiming for, and it is within reach for every single one of you, and it is far, far closer than you perhaps think.

 States and corporations grab for reins of the Internet

ICANN President Fadi Chehadé speaks at the Hudson Institute on April 4, 2014. The group has moved to center stage
AFP

SAN FRANCISCO —
As the U.S. steps back from overseeing the group entrusted to essentially run the Internet, states and corporations are grabbing for the reins.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has gone from being behind the scenes tending to the task of managing website addresses to being center stage in a play for power on the Internet.

Governments want to exert control over the sweeping trans-national power of the Internet that is effecting their policies, politics, social fabric and/or their economic conditions,” ICANN chief executive Fadi Chehade told AFP just days before the group gathers in Los Angeles beginning Sunday to tackle an array of hot issues.

“The other groups are large corporations concerned about security issues,” he continued while discussing forces striving for influence over the organization.

“Therefore, they are stepping in with force to figure out how to reduce potential harm to customers and to their businesses.”

Governance of the Internet will be a high-profile topic at the ICANN 51 meeting that will continue through October 16 in Los Angeles.

The World Economic Forum recently unveiled a project aimed at connecting governments, businesses, academia, technicians and civil society worldwide to brainstorm the best ways to govern the Internet. [it was designed to not be governed, it was designed for freedom... -AK]

WEF launched its NETmundial Initiative in a bid to build on the outcome of a large conference in Brazil in April that called for a transparent, multi-stakeholder approach to running the Web.

“Anyone who wants to come in and build a coalition of stakeholders and address issues, more power to them,” Chehade said of the crowd-sourcing move.

“The way we put it in ICANN is getting the free will of the people to bottom-up coalesce, work together and come up with solutions.”

Participants at the conference in Brazil balked at a push by some countries, including China and Russia, for governments to move into a leading role in overseeing the Internet, amid fears of the impact this could have on the unity of the Web and on online dissent and freedom of expression. [...what those bastions of free-speech want control? Nah... LOL!!! -AK]
