The Carnivore, the Boston Shuffler, the Knife…

are some of the names of the algorithms on Wall Street that make up 70% of the operating system of stocks formerly known as known as your pension fund, and portfolio.

What Kevin Slavin is talking about is High Frequency Trading/Black Boxes that dominate The Street. In reality these mathematic algorithms are shaping far more than Wall Street, they’re shaping our world.

Stocks



Last Tuesday many very smart technical analysts of stocks were using words of caution after Monday’s rally. They said things like -

Don’t get too excited, wait for more days like Monday’s, and volume was too weak.

Not Investors411 - This site was unabashedly vocal in a more  BULLISH outlook. Investor’s featured The Bullish Puppet Master editorial, an upgrade of stocks  and a New Your Stock List #7.

The rest, as they say is history -

Stocks exploded higher 24 hours later.


Tomorrow

  • Why Investors was out front with the upgrade.
  • Will the rally continue?
  • A new exciting Yankee Bob editorial

Mea Culpa - I mentioned the fact I’d be out of town to the folks on the mail list, but forgot to post it on the blog.  We had a very active comment section this week. Check it out. (Scroll Down)
