Stock Market Crash is Heading Our Way !!!


Posted on September 3, 2007
Filed Under Weird Facts, Current Facts, Main |
This
is the speculation and buzz all over the trading floors, around the
world and now on the internet, after a mysterious trader placed a huge
bet, by buying $1 Billion Dollars worth of stock option puts. The puts
that were purchased is a forecast or a bet that the market will drop in
a massive way or in anyway, for that matter. Expiration for the puts
that were purchased is on the third week of September. The speculation
is that a 911 style of attack will precede the crashing of the [color:3c7c=blue ! important][color:3c7c=blue ! important]stock [color:3c7c=blue ! important]market.
If this individual is wrong, he will lose around $1 Billion Dollars,
maybe… the buzz on the net, and among traders, is that this individual
or someone, knows something. Amazingly, prior to the horrific actions
of 911, two of the largest trading firms, had an enormous spike on put
buying, on [color:3c7c=blue ! important][color:3c7c=blue ! important]airline [color:3c7c=blue ! important]stocks.
Conspiracy or Pure Luck ? Now let me explain why I said maybe, about
the mystery trader. Picture this; he purchased the puts, pays for a
major advertising campaign with press releases and a huge buzz on the
net, people and traders start buying up a ton of puts, the market
starts to go down, because of the amazing downward pressure, and guess
what, the mystery trader sells all his puts on the way down to pocket a
few million dollars…not bad for a few days of work, huh !!! These are
the type of animals on Wall Street…they don’t play for fun, they play
for money… So be careful who you believe….which should be no one…stick
to the fundamentals !!! Wall Street is a Game… Regardless what happens,
the stock market and it’s traders live on fear and greed, and this is
the best way, they know how to make millions of dollars. So, what to do
if your an [color:3c7c=blue ! important][color:3c7c=blue ! important]investor
? Go with your gut…and don’t trade on the buzz or chatter… if you have
to sit on the sidelines, by all means, do it…there’s always tomorrow.
Wall Street is a Big Boys Game, and all you need to know, is how to
play it…

Carry trade unwinds as yen hits one-year high

An
anonymous investor has placed a bet on an index of Europe's top 50
stocks falling by a third by the end of September, as world equity
markets plunged for a third day and volatility hit a three-year high.

Traders miss out on dollar slide
30 Nov 2006


The mystery investor has bought put option contracts on the DJ Eurostoxx 50
index that will result in a profit if it plunges to 2,800 or below by
the end of September. Based on the 2,800 strike price, the position
covers a notional €6.9bn, and potentially even more using a market
price of about 4,100 when the trades were done on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The identity of the investor is unknown but market sources
speculated it was either a large hedge fund hedging itself against
deepening losses, or a long-only fund manager pressing the panic button
to protect its gains.
The investor has bought a total of 245,000 put options on the index.
The September put option with a 2,800 strike was the most popular DJ
Eurostoxx 50 contract yesterday, according to data from Bloomberg.
Volatility in European equity markets has risen sharply this week as
investors cut back on the amount of risk they are taking. The VSTOXX
index, which measures the volatility of the DJ Eurostoxx 50 index, hit
34 this morning, which is more than double its three-year average.
Similarly the volatility of the US stock market was trading at almost three times its three-year average, hitting 30 yesterday.
However, both indices continue to trade below their 2002 highs.
European stock markets were trading down almost 3% at by 13:00 GMT
today, after large drops in Asia and Australia overnight. The
Australian market fell 300 points at one stage when futures trading was
suspended for over an hour and traders were forced to hedge positions
by selling physical stocks rather than futures.
An analyst at Goldman Sachs JB Were
in Australia wrote: "I think I shall remember this day as the day that
I saw the market go to hell, look into the abyss - didn't like what it
looked like and then came screaming back up as far away from there as
it could get. ... It was a truly spooky day and I’ve seen a lot over
the last 20 years but today will be one that anyone who saw it will
never forget. But this is what market bottoms are made out of."
The rise in volatility and risk aversion has also contributed to a
sharp appreciation in the Japanese yen, which has been used to finance
the so-called carry trade, where investors borrow in a low-yielding
currency to invest in one with a higher-yield.
Analysts' belief that the yen carry trade is set for a major
unwinding has intensified today as the Japanese currency continued to
rally in morning trade.
The yen strengthened today as it broke through several psychological
barriers. The yen hit 113.60 against the dollar by 12:35 GMT, the first
time in more than a year it has dropped below 114. The yen was
substantially up against the dollar from yesterday, when it traded at
above 116.
Simon Derrick, head of currency research at Bank of New York Mellon,
said: "With any hope of even a brief bounce emerging in the yen crosses
evaporating in the fierce glare of another horrible close in New York,
it is clear that the vicious, self-reinforcing, downward spiral we were
worrying about is already firmly established."
