Interesting ‘financial ecosystem’ graphic

The Incredibly Shrinking Market Liquidity, Or The Upcoming Black Swan Of Black Swans

"Anyone who is doing anything sensible right now is either losing money or is out of the market entirely." These are the words of a quant trader, who is seeing something scary in the capital markets. Scary enough to merit a warning that we could be on the verge of another October 87, August 2007, or January 2008.

  • A wonderful exercise in Geek Speak..

    Fact: The markets are, in most respects, navigating uncharted waters. That goes against almost everything that the quants hold dear.

    Myopic theorising such as this, is of very little use..

  • August 2007 and January 2008 both had little effect on the stock markets.

  • I’m pretty sure there’s an HPC rule that all blog posts must be in English. Could anybody translate this one for us?

  • Will, post 2

    Did you bother to click on the charts in the article before you posted? Even checking the FTSE 100 Charts there was a 1200 point drop in the first 2 weeks of January 2008.

    January 2nd is nearly always good for a SHORT bet on FTSE and Dow Jones (11 years out of last 13, it has paid for my summer holiday – no not the crappy Sun £9.50 Hi-De-Hi type)
