[10:45] {nemo} can you say "1998"
[10:51] {cosmo} it was a good year to trade...
[10:52] {nemo} bad year for markets when Russia defaulted...may be repeating that if oil goes much lower
[10:54] {cosmo} that's up to Saudi, no?
[10:55] {cosmo} has been so far...

[11:54] {dptl} ok its about time twtr
01[11:54] {@Threei}  US equity indices are shooting higher this morning and European markets have regained losses to close at their highs. Crude prices are up on the session and the Russians seemed to have arrested the plunge in the ruble for the moment. Now all eyes are on the Fed decision later today.
01[11:55] {@Threei}  Attention shifts from Russia and crude today over to the Fed decision and Chair Yellen's post-decision press conference. Many analysts think today will be the day the Fed drops the considerable time language from its policy statement. And even if it does not, it will likely indicate the key phrase is on its way out by introducing an alternative.
01[11:56] {@Threei}  The ruble has regained some strength this morning after two days of nightmarish moves. USD/RUB has declined to around 60 after topping out yesterday at 78.60 on reports that the Russian government and the Russian Central Bank have worked out a strategy for girding the currency, although it remains unclear exactly what Moscow is planning.

01[12:10] {@Threei}  after two very strong days in a row
[12:10] {dptl} i am not having good day again today
01[12:10] {@Threei}  you have some kind of "set frustration mode upon awakening"
01[12:11] {@Threei}  well, then this is what you better focus ohn - why on earth are you not having good day when calls are profitable
01[12:11] {@Threei}  what about yesterday?

01[11:53] {Threei}  The dramatic collapse of the Russian Ruble is in sharp focus this morning. The ruble had gained around 8% after the Russian Central Bank raised rates by 650 basis points to 17% from 10.5% on Monday afternoon (early Tuesday morning local time), but those gains vaporized as USD/RUB shot up to 79 and then settled around 72.80 in mid-morning trade. The ruble is now down by more than 20% against the dollar on the week and down by 56% YTD.
01[11:54] {Threei}  rare case in history when aggression is being punished this quickly and severely
[11:55] {dino} nice to ser

[11:57] {dino} yes, unfortunately, that too
01[11:58] {Threei}  I think Saudis had no choice
01[11:58] {Threei}  they tried to cut production back in 80s
01[11:59] {Threei}  it didn't help the price but they lost sales and markets to those who were continue selling
01[11:59] {Threei}  so this time around they simply decided to keep the markets
[12:00] {dino} big question is, for how long? been looking at jan 2015 calls uso, oco

01[12:02] {Threei}  don't know dino... as pure trading maybe, but long term oil doesn't look good to me

[12:38] {nemo} Hey Padawan, I'd be careful shorting the oil complex today, you're likely better off finding a place to get long
[12:39] {nemo} after so many days down, the odds are beginning to work against a short play
[12:39] {nemo} notice uso just bounced at vwap
[12:39] {cosmo} the oil drop, like others in the past, is just a conspiracy to kill solar and such...

Market Week Wrap-up Weekly Market Update: Risk Off Resurfaces

Volatility made a big comeback this week as the S&P500 index saw its first weekly loss in two months and the crude meltdown showed no signs of letting up. After two solid months of declining oil prices, the more than 10% drop in WTI futures this week, from $65 to below $58/barrel, finally triggered some significant risk-off behavior over deflation concerns. Most market watchers continue to tout the economic benefits of lower oil prices, but the speed of the decline has become unsettling. The jittery market largely ignored more strong US economic data, including excellent November retail sales and a 7-year high in the University of Michigan confidence reading, and gave more weight to ugly European industrial production and CPI data. In China, the November CPI and PPI inflation readings were concerning, with CPI hitting a five-year low, while additional economic and political reports cemented the expectation that China will reduce its official growth target for 2015. The DJIA had its worst week since late 2011, dropping 3.7%, while the S&P500 fell 3.5% and the Nasdaq lost 2.7%.

US Treasury yields have seen a notable contraction this week. On Friday, the 30-year UST ended around 2.74%, the lowest weekly close since the end of 2012. The yield on the 10-year UST fell as low as 2.09% (Recall that during the height of the Ebola angst in mid-October, the 10-year and 30-year yields briefly dipped as low as 1.86% and 2.67%, respectively). Spreads have narrowed as short-dated yields climbed in preparation for Fed tightening, further flattening out the yield curve.

The oil shock is rippling throughout global markets. Investors pulled nearly $1.9 billion from high-yield debt funds this week as lower oil prices exacerbated fears that smaller oil names could run into financing trouble. Energy debt currently accounts for around 16% of the US junk bond market. Russia continues to suffer from the oil swoon - the ruble lost another 10% against the dollar this week and not even another rate hike by the Russian Central Bank (the one-week auction rate was raised 11 bps to 10.5%) was able to arrest the slide. Meanwhile, major airlines should end up as a major beneficiary of lower oil prices. Industry group IATA forecasted 2015 airline industry profits of $25B v $19.9B y/y thanks to lower oil prices and higher worldwide GDP growth.

In Europe, deflation is looming. Core inflation rates, excluding the downward pressure of slumping energy prices, has gone negative in some euro zone peripheral nations. In the largest euro economies, France's headline November m/m CPI was -0.2% while Germany was at 0.0%. The data intensifies pressure on the ECB to launch its planned sovereign QE program as soon as possible, especially after this week's disappointing second TLTRO allotment, in which banks took only €130B, less than half the available credit on offer. The euro recovered from last week's 28-month lows, rising to 1.2500 from lows around 1.2250.

Comments from banking executives this week put some shade on the outlook for big US banks. At an investor conference, Bank of America's CEO warned that Q4 sales and trading revenue would be lower y/y and q/q. At the same conference, Citigroup's CEO warned that the bank would take a $3.5B charge in Q4 for legal investigations and would be marginally profitable after the charge. In addition, the Fed proposed a larger capital surcharge on the eight largest SIFI banks, and called out JP Morgan as the only large bank that might need to boost capital (by as much as $22B) to satisfy new capital rules.

On the merger front, Merck said it would buy Cubist Pharmaceuticals for $9.5 billion including debt, expanding its footprint in the market for drugs that target antibiotic resistant superbugs. The all-cash deal is valued around $102 per share, a 35% premium. Merck got a rude surprise just hours after announcing the deal: a US court curtailed all but one of the patents covering Cubist's top seller, Cubicin, which delivered most of the $1 billion in 2015 revenue Merck expected from the acquisition. Generics could launch as soon as mid-2016.

Japan Q3 final GDP confirmed a technical recession with a 2nd consecutive quarter of negative growth. Despite expectations of a shallower contraction via an upward revision in the CapEx component, corporate spending actually fell by a steeper 0.4% margin than the 0.2% initially reported. Since the release of the GDP report, questions over the efficacy of Abenomics policies have become more prevalent going into this Sunday's parliamentary elections, even though the initial polls suggest the opposition remains too disorganized to muster a successful government challenge. Meanwhile, general risk-off market sentiment and more vocal public opposition to excessive Yen weakness has sent USD/JPY lower on a weekly basis for the first time in 8 weeks, with the pair falling over 3 big figures, below ¥119.

A broad range of November data out of China continued to point to a gradual slowdown coupled with policymakers' attempts to manage the soft landing and also acknowledge the changing nature of the economy. The headline trade surplus topped expectations, but imports fell for the first time in 3 months amid lower shipments of hard commodities and exports were also below expectations. The further decline in oil prices has also helped to bring CPI down to a 5-year low of 1.4% - below consensus. Industrial output fell to a 3-month low and also its 2nd worst level in 5 years, while fixed asset investment hit a 13-year low and property investment a 5 1/2 year low. Only November lending figures were notably better than expected at CNY852.7B vs CNY655B consensus amid speculation that policymakers are endorsing a higher lending ceiling of CNY10T in 2014, up from CNY8.9T in 2013. On Friday, a Chinese press report citing cabinet sources indicated the concluded Economic Work Council meeting will recommend lowering the official 2015 GDP target from the 7.5% rate in 2014 for the first time in 3 years.

[13:57] {nemo} Qs above
01[13:57] {@Threei}  .46 is too close
01[13:57] {@Threei}  .40 will give room for partial there

[14:21] {nemo} think this is it
[14:22] {RonS} said the guy channeling Kenny Loggins...
[14:22] {nemo} yeah, and your mutha don't dance
[14:22] {dptl} not complaining but but dont understand if i have a pending order  bid at .10 let say to get fill at .08? happens quite offten
[14:22] {RonS} saw them back in the day...
[14:23] {nemo} me 2
[14:23] {RonS} ucsb...messina still lives in SB
[14:24] {dptl} how is that possible?
01[14:24] {@Threei}  you'll have to ask logix guys dp
[14:24] {RonS} can you spell ... o l d?
[14:24] {dptl} and seeing prints at .10 going
01[14:24] {@Threei}  ot has to do with logic of rouging algorithm
01[14:24] {@Threei}  routing
[14:24] {RonS} oh, sorry...
[14:24] {dino} dp, slippage, it happens
01[14:25] {@Threei}  dino... he is getting orice improvement
01[14:25] {@Threei}  on limit order
[14:25] {dptl} no its not about slippage ..its somethingelse
[14:26] {dptl} pending limit yes
01[14:27] {@Threei}  I have my suspicion
01[14:27] {@Threei}  but I'd rather they answered it
[14:27] {dptl} ok, what is it
01[14:27] {@Threei}  let me put it this way:
[14:27] {dino} hmmm, i get fills all around my pendings, sometimes better, most times pemmy or three worse
01[14:28] {@Threei}  as long as you don't encounter situation where .10 prints go through and level is pierced, you don't get your fill and price bounces, be happy :)
[14:28] {JoebiWan} i had one .12 cents worse than a sell limit order today
[14:28] {dptl} when you punch the price you want yes..but i am talking pending orders
[14:28] {JoebiWan} out wfm
[14:29] {dptl} 2/3 out
[14:30] {dptl} some time i see level gone, but i still not filled until next level appers
[14:30] {nemo} logix does not get the best fills, probably not collocated
01[14:31] {@Threei}  that crap is gone
01[14:31] {@Threei}  forget colocation thingy, it's dead
[14:31] {nemo} what crap
[14:31] {nemo} really, how do you figure?
01[14:31] {@Threei}  one more year, no one will even remember what HFT was
01[14:31] {@Threei}  easy
01[14:32] {@Threei}  profits dropped significatnly, HFT war for milliseconds doesn't pay for itself anymore
01[14:32] {@Threei}  number of firms decreased greatly
01[14:32] {@Threei}  remaining ones fight for the share of decreasing pie
[14:32] {nemo} as long as their advantage is not enforceably regulated out, they'll be around...they have a physics infrastructure advantage
01[14:33] {@Threei}  expense of colocation and endless war for speed is not compensated for anymore
01[14:33] {@Threei}  they will be around, sure
[14:33] {dptl} even now my order to buy at 48(pending), was filled at 47.99
01[14:33] {@Threei}  in smaller numbers, with way lower volume
[14:33] {nemo} I've watched on stocks I was playing that had a .02-.03 cent spread.  I'd send an order, and an order would pop up right in front of me before I got their
[14:34] {nemo} there
[14:34] {nemo} bounce time?
01[14:34] {@Threei}  so what? This kinf of things was always happening
[14:35] {dptl} out wfm 1:3
01[14:35] {@Threei}  you cxan't confidently sttirbute it to HFT algorithms
[14:35] {nemo} not like this
[14:35] {JoebiWan} gj dp
[14:35] {dptl} ty
[14:35] {nemo} Look, there's a documented difference in time stamping between the SIP and collocated system...that's a physical advantage
01[14:35] {@Threei}  gosh... who argues with that
01[14:35] {@Threei}  you don't listen to what I say
[14:36] {dptl} and agai .90 bid filled at .89 lol
[14:36] {nemo} o.k. so the species population will reduce, but they will still be there
01[14:36] {@Threei}  [14:33] {@Threei} they will be around, sure
[14:36] {jfjf64} anything going on
01[14:36] {@Threei}  yes... dp makes money
[14:37] {nemo} and they will feed on those who don't have their advantage
[14:37] {jfjf64} nice
01[14:37] {@Threei}  nemo argues with himself
[14:37] {jfjf64} nice
[14:37] {nemo} so we will continue to get sub par fills
[14:37] {dptl} hmm..more like recovering again. with small sh. still down
[14:37] {nemo} I can't read today
01[14:38] {@Threei}  2013:
01[14:38] {@Threei}  Whether high-frequency trading is good for investors or bad, one fact that no one disputes is the drastic drop in HFT profits.
01[14:38] {@Threei}  2104 was even more pronounced
[14:38] {nemo} sure, less room in the ecosystem
01[14:39] {@Threei}  no, it's worxse than that
01[14:39] {@Threei}  look:
01[14:39] {@Threei}  Just how much smaller are the profits? Well, for GETCO, the largest HFT player in the U.S. markets, profits from HFT shrank 82% last year, down $110.2 million from 2011. That's staggering.
[14:39] {dino} 2104, i must have fallen asleep
01[14:39] {@Threei}  hehe
01[14:39] {@Threei}  Profits from all market participants using high-frequency trading strategies dropped to $1 billion last year, reportedly down from $5 billion just four years ago.
01[14:39] {@Threei}  Does this mean HFT will disappear? No, certainly not. However, the game has shifted. No longer can anyone with a server, an algo and some capital enter the high-frequency trading space and expect to compete.
