Most recent episode about shorting exhibits nutty stock market demands repair service

Buying and selling Spots, Jan. 29

As the hedge funders are owning to fulfill their shorts (current market positions, that is), it is hilarious to see them getting what they give some others.

The “market” is not rational and in no way has been. CNBC stated that 80 per cent of all trades are finished mechanically by personal computers, not people today. We know these personal computers do lights speedy “test” trades to see what a get or offer order does to inventory charges, then withdraws the trades if the course is incorrect.

Why are personal computers authorized to cheat the sector, rather of getting to fulfill a trade and put up the inventory or income as humans do?

The 2008 financial crisis did not final result in more regulation or enforcement.

Yesterday we awoke to a statement that global economical marketplaces have been decreased owing to COVID-19 fears. Genuinely?

Each individual trader, in each and every trade all over the world and each and every computer buying and selling program woke up and quickly feared COVID-19 and that simultaneous fear resulted in a selloff?

That is herd behaviour and completely irrational.

Did earnings and elementary values of stocks also wake up and drop?

Of program not. Obviously the “market” demands huge repairs to its schizophrenic and portfolio-destroying behaviour.

Economic analyst(Roaring) Kitty (Keith Gill) is a hero for generating hedge-fund pirates stroll their personal plank.
