Pump & Dump

by The MoleMay 6, 2009

UPDATE 10:40am EDT: Damn disqus seems to be down again, so I’m not sure when you rats will actually see this post:

Say hello to Mr. Pump and Mr. Dump – they are an evil twin duo genetically engineered by a team of mad scientists to cluster fuck anyone left and crazy enough trading equities. Usually they keep them chained up in an electrified metal cage but they were let loose this morning to leverage the less-horrible-than-anticipated ADP numbers. How much you bet those numbers are going to be revised in a matter of two weeks?

So many small specs to screw but so little time – what to do – what to do…

BTW, except for my GLD butterfly (@*^%!$) I’m completely in cash, folks – and have been for a while. Disclosure: I ignored an evil.rat/NQ and an resident.evil/NQ long alert this morning as this tape look like a healthy serving of daily blue plate mockery to me. I am not taking sides and I’m staying out. The drive by shooting trading style spearheaded by GS prop desk XBox monkeys continues uncontested and in full daylight.

UPDATE 11:17am EDT: I just donated a few bucks to ZeroHedge as those guys are cranking out great material on a daily basis. Maybe if our mainstream media would produce material of that caliber they wouldn’t have to constantly complain about the death of the media industry.

However, even more importantly Tyler is starting to seriously piss off Morgan Stanley which is worth every penny I donated and then some. Alright rats – this is a code red activiation – head over there and donate – even if it’s just five bucks or so. You can click right here to go directly to ZeroHedge’s PayPal page.

    GREAT QUESTIONS!!

  • BalaB

    hmmm….Conflicting Internals data shoing 90% down vol.
    Its suspect. I don't see deep enough selling to equal 90% down.

  • http://tradingsigns.blogspot.com/ T. Waffle

    Covered other half ES @ 902.75.

    First round +7 points other half +9 points. Done for now. I will trade after 3:45 PM now.

    Cheers!! everyone.

    PP is 900.50 so expect market to be choppy now till last 15 min and expect to trade between 905-901 range.

    I am done for now.

  • BigHouse(Aka Mr Vix)

    Now its chop time……

  • lilme

    GRMN reported bad results and the stock went down! Amazing!

  • BigHouse(Aka Mr Vix)

    I see XLF testing those highs today.Will see if its a double top or we break out.

  • Squidman

    Yeah, zero lite shows the fuckery zone. Were past the window so I'm done. Going for a run in the mountains, where the bears are actually out. Thanks BalaB. And thanks for the alert email Mole. I may check out Fujisan's butterflys EOD.

  • molecool

    So true. Which is why I'm so hesitant to take positions lately.

  • BalaB

    Squidy….3min NQs are setting up for a Long but I'm not gonna take it. Don't trust it.

  • Squidman

    I thought trollop hunting was worthy?

  • holdctrp

    Mole, by what stage are you going to take heavy dose of PUTS for the possible extended selloff? Granted this market is sickly being manipulated, but it can't go on forever, or can it?

  • katzo7

    Squiddy is smoking HOT today.
    +1

  • annamall

    wish I had puts on that beast! 🙂

  • katzo7

    This IMO is classic topping action. I am not saying this IS the top, but the divergence, huge runs up and down, etc. is classic. Mole's ATR.

  • Squidman

    I'm still getting a feel for the NQM9, but I think you are right. Back to VWAP and boing. It's almost been a reliable trading range intraday. Not even the Waffle meister is playing it, and lately he's been like Mikey–will eat anything.

  • molecool

    The market can stay irrational a lot longer than we can stay solvent. I will start scaling into puts once I see some supporting evidence that the top of this consolidation is near – e.g. bulls/bears ratio should be over 90%. Or in other words – when you see headlines everywhere that the bear market is dead and that the bull is back THAT is when I go short like a mad monkey.

  • Squidman

    Thanks 07 but I'm really just a follower here of you better beings. I agree 100% about the topping action. Wouldn't it be nice if this a.m. turned out to be the final blow off. Still think the Sachson's will push through EOD tomorrow though. Why waste a good 10 hours of fuckery?

  • EDC

    how through TOS can one see the indicator when there 90% bulls? or is that stockcharts only?

  • http://www.mikevadon.blogspot.com mikevadon

    It looks like the small caps are starting to break down. Could be a turning point.

    http://www.mikevadon.blogspot.com

  • Squidman

    If the Nas is leading then the bullish numbers of Monday already hit equal to last primary A in 2007. So now I wait for the Dow to catch up.

  • katzo7

    Squiddy,
    I would be interested to know what you based your AAPL short call on.

  • TomOfTheNorth

    That just isn't done!!!

    LOL

  • Count_de_Monee

    I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I covered my NQ shorts on the dump down earlier to lock in some profits and I actually went long (OK, 1 lousy contract, but it's the principle that counts) at 1405, with a stop at breakeven.

    Now that's a sure sign that we've seen the top and the plunge may now commence.

    I'm going to take a shower now as I feel dirty.

  • Flatlander

    Which website?

    Thanks.

  • Keirsten

    Come to the dark side Count. The profits are all that matter now. You'll be stashing cash to short the living daylights out of this pig when it's ripe. LOL

    * To reiterate an observation that I've found to be a truism: You don't find traders who are making money talking about “manipulated” markets. Markets may or may not be manipulated, but many traders feel manipulated by markets when they're losing money.

    * I've never seen a trader sustain success who blames markets for their losses. It's tough to work on yourself and your trading when you're casting blame (and assigning responsibility) elsewhere.

  • Flatlander

    Read somewhere that Prechter felt the March lows were the end of Wave 5 and should be followed by and A-B-C wave to the 200 day MA.

    I see the “A” wave and we are near (in some cases above) the 200 day MA. Either Wave “B” was real small or today is the start of a Wave “B” or the 200 day MA target was too pessimistic.

    Either way, Prechter indicated after the Wave C has completed, the market will then reward the bears big time.

  • Squidman

    Nice Fujisan. I got distracted by AAPL and should have kept an eye on the bigger picture.

    I went short yesterday on apple because I saw the momentum roll over. 🙂

    Pretty funny. I was caught out earlier this morning with the /ES pump ona few ES contracts. Got it all back on the dump back down.

    Got out of my WYNN puts for a nice gain, SRS for a nice gain. Now, sitting on a whopping 2% of my holdings in the market (BAC short). Somehow or another I'm at 98% cash and enjoying the feeling. . . Didn't make anything but happy as a clam nonetheless. . . . Capitulation in a happy sort of way in today's market.

    I am not losing money – I am smart enough to sit markets like this out, swordvish.

  • http://tradingsigns.blogspot.com/ T. Waffle

    Where is my share of love???

    🙁

  • anthem

    I agree. It was down 9% premarket before the jobs number and then went up 10%. It's still hanging very tough and I have no idea why as that 34B number is a lot worse than what everybody was expecting ( around 10B).

    Not sure whats propping it up but since so many people/funds/(and now govt) have it, there are probably a lot of people who are just holding it.

  • molecool

    The NDX already is above the 200 MA – just FYI.

  • molecool

    I don't think you ever caught on to this one, Waffle…

  • molecool

    There are only a handful of sites I follow and ZeroHedge has quickly risen to the top.

  • salvadorveiga

    just donated a few bucks as well… it's really impressive, the amount of articles they're doing everyday… I can't keep up the reading of all articles but it's such a great site…

    How about that site goldmansacks666.com , they have been publishing good stuff about gS as well

  • http://tradingsigns.blogspot.com/ T. Waffle

    What do you mean? I am the only one shared the love lol!

  • swordvish

    I hear ya. Gotta give you props on you're decisions to enter/sit out the market. Monday was a prime example & your systems worked like a charm! I guess it makes it easier to sit out days like this when you think back to Monday. Best to wait for those oppurtunities which give us better odds.

    Just thought I'd post (my previous post) as I do think many get carried away with the 'manipulated' markets line.

    Just adding a bit of balance for people to think about. Hope that's cool…

    Speaking of bullish headlines, this could be the headline du jour :

    Barclays Strategist Predicts a ‘Surprising Rebound’ in 2009

    This was on SeekingAlpha from CNBC. The text in essence says, “if the economy improves the market could go up”.

    And they pay these guys shitpots of money for these laser-like insights…….

  • DoubleNaughtSpy

    “David Viniar, the company’s chief financial officer, said on April 14 that the trading success was due to “FAVORABLE COMPETITIVE DYNAMICS,” wider margins and higher volatility.”

    Does that mean controlling the market by brute force and government collusion or what?

  • Lori

    I shared by clicking on “Turn $5,000 into $1,057,887.”

    But I clicked by mistake. I thought it said “Turn $5,000 into $1,000” and I thought..well, I'm already doing that, might as well see if their system resembles mine.

    Love how in Zerohedge he discusses their role in stablizing the markets, the SLP program (acronym for slip it to the public) but GS seems to be doing the opposite exaccerbating wild swings. Hummmmmm.

    Why here?
    Why would FAZ take off here? Simply because it is low TODAY?
    It was low EOD Monday.

    Before that it was low last Thursday morning.
    Before that it was low EOD two Fridays ago.

    I rarely trade options- just straight equities, but both of my feeds give me most actives on the NYSE, NAZ and puts/calls. CTIC is cheap enough to just buy shares as a lottery ticket methinks. At this rate I can just quit doing mega research at night and trade the game. It's nuts. I'll trade ERY again on the short oil play. That sucker is a gem, but a 3X, so only for quick trading.

  • Fujisan

    I'm not dumping. 34.12 is 100% price extension of the 1st impulsive wave (10 min chart) and that's where the reversal often comes in. I will place a tight stop once it hits my target. If it says lower or a selloff toward the close, I will hang on to my position.

    hasn't this been the case.. good news .. bad news.. no news.. we have all moved up.. The only decent sized move down was 2-3 weeks ago when some blog published something about stress test results.. which turned out to be a rumor only…

    The energy sector has just gone crazy.. coal … double crazy.. coal stocks have more than doubled in past 5 weeks.. This is starting to seem like last summer…

    However this is not going to end nicely.. The prices of gas are going up which will in turn start driving inflation… Falling income, rising unemployment when collide with rising inflation – is what is going to lead to a mother of all dumps come late summer / early fall.

    The investor letter from Greenlight Capital (via Zero Hedge) quotes JFK:

    “A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”

    so true

    Just used this page @ the IRS's website — let's you know when you'll get your tax refund. Still a few weeks for me, but at least I know they have my stuff…

    God help me to make sense of these markets, not only bonds rallying, but AUDUSD is making new highs for the year, oil's attempting to break the neckline and the SPX is triangulating, with the most likely outcome to the upside. I can only think of one explanation: more cheap money to come, something in the announcement about the stresstest.

    It may sound totally dumb but I find great benefit in visualization techniques when trading. I need to “see” the bid/ask and the “human” behind the orders. Thankfully, the E-Minis reveal so much of their character, it makes trading them a lot easier provided you're only playing intra-day and (the current spike aside, btw, just grabbed +4 ES pts ) mostly within the first hour. After that, the odds are really not in your favor (as of late).

    Smoothed by losses
    Such as ocean side rock
    softened by crushing waves

    A torrent of water
    covers and flips the blue whale
    Will this market make me bale?
