Our Brave New ‘Markets’ – How HFT Algos Risk A Sudden Massive Sell-Off

Authored by Chris Martenson via, One thing is clear: These aren’t your daddy’s markets anymore.

Just moments after we tweeted the following: almost time for today’s gamma rebal freak out — zerohedge (@zerohedge) December 8, 2016 … stocks surged again on a sudden heavy volume spike, as today’s latest gamma rebalance kicked in again.

Globalists Are Now Openly Demanding New World Order Centralization

Gold & Silver Surge On Heavy Volume

Overnight weakness in global stock markets has prompted safety bids in Treasuries and precious metals but the last few minutes has seen a heavy volume spike in both gold and silver (above $1075 and $14 respectively)…     $1088 is perhaps the next target (50DMA) for gold and $14.46 (50DMA) for Silver.

With Crude ramping, dragging stocks with it (as USDJPY is dead now) but not really gaining much ground, it was only a matter of time before the manipulators turned to their oldest-trick-in-the-book: 1249ET – *NASDAQ, NYSE EXCHANGES DECLARE SELF-HELP AGAINST CBOE *NYSE AMEX OPTIONS SUSPENDED ROUTING TO CBOE *CBOE SAYS ALL PREVIOUSLY HALTED CLASSES NOW […]

ZeroHedge: Futures Rebound, Crude “Flash Smashes” Higher As Dollar Strengthens

Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food.

ZeroHedge: What Rout? Stocks Have Best Day In A Year

Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food. Since 13 minutes after the US equity market opened, the NYSE was broken for 150 symbols from AAPL to XIV (inverse VIX). KO, MCD, & IBM all fell notably on earnings.
