Machines Raise Worries Amid Market Rout
Barron´s, by Avi Salzman

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/6/2018 12:49:13 PM

Algorithmic trading, exchange-traded funds, robo-advisors. Monday´s stock market plunge, which sent the S&P 500 tumbling 4.1%, is unlike most previous crashes because individual stocks and individual traders are less important than they used to be. But while it might be comfortable to blame the machines or passive group-think for this one, humans bear some of the blame. It´s not apparent that a technical glitch or enormous forced selling caused today´s market rout. Still, machines likely made the highs and lows more dramatic. "It doesn´t feel as if this was qualitative active asset managers significantly reducing their equity exposure,"

Comments:
Robo-trading didn´t cause the downturn but amplified it, causing a cascade of selling. Some financial websites also crashed, adding to the melee.

There is no sense posting an article linked to a pay-for site, because it can´t be read by those of us who do not have a subscription.

I recall the same sort of worries in 1987 and every time since, whenever there is a correction. If you sell in the dips you lose and miss the rebound. The time to buy is at hand.

No paywall here, I got the entire article. It is highly unlikely that there were any software glitches but everybody uses different formulas to control their assets. A mild selloff on one computer might parallel a panic-mode dump on another. Much of it has been adjusted today and will probably resume normal levels by the end of the week.

I have rules on my bank account which have to be adjusted from time to time based on volume, similar to stocks. This system is far more reliable than human emotion.

Russian bots sow social upheaval across
US using Facebook, Twitter, experts say
Fox News, by Chris Ciaccia    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 2/20/2018 9:36:57 PM     Post Reply
Russian bots aren´t pro-Republican or pro-Democrat: they´re simply anti-American. That´s the conclusion many are reaching in the wake of the indictments recently handed out by Special Counsel Robert Mueller against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities who allegedly enacted a sophisticated plot to wage “information warfare” against the United States. Marat Mindiyarov, a former commenter at the Internet Research Agency, says the organization´s Facebook department hired people with excellent English skills to sway U.S. public opinion through an elaborate social media campaign. His own experience at the agency makes him trust the U.S. indictment, Mindiyarov told The Associated Press.

Dems ponder gender politics of 2020 nominee

At a birthday party for Hillary Clinton in October, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) delivered a toast — and a sobering thought — for the evening’s attendees: “If Hillary couldn’t win the White House, I don’t know which woman can.” (Snip) More pointedly, the rise of the #MeToo movement and Trump’s own controversies with women make it feel incongruous for Democrats to name a white male as their candidate in the next presidential race. “The MeToo movement is a powerful force that could lead to Democratic midterm wins in 2018 and victory in the 2020 presidential race,” said Democratic strategist Brad

Selfishness Is Killing Liberalism

The death of liberalism constitutes the publishing world’s biggest mass funeral since the death of God half a century ago. Some authors, like conservative philosopher Patrick Deneen, of Why Liberalism Failed, have come to bury yesterday’s dogma. Others, like Edward Luce (The Retreat of Western Liberalism), Mark Lilla (The Once and Future Liberal), and Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt (How Democracies Die) come rather to praise. I’m in the latter group; the title-in-my-head of the book I’m now writing is What Was Liberalism. But perhaps, like God, liberalism has been buried prematurely. Maybe the question that we should be asking

Sunny days for the
economy can´t last forever

1. It´s getting late: The recovery from the Great Recession is already one of the longest economic expansions in American history. And recently the economic cycle has gone from humming along to booming. Unemployment is down to a 17-year low, small business sentiment is roaring, and economic growth hit the 3% mark twice last year. But economic expansions don´t last forever. A recession comes along eventually and ruins the party. Wall Street is already pondering the demise of this recovery, which in May would become the second-longest in history. Most economists and investors believe the U.S. economy is either in

For the LGBT Community, Gus
Kenworthy´s Olympics Loss Is Still a Big Win

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

Trump slams FBI over ´missed signals´ on
Florida shooting, asserts Russia was distraction

President Donald Trump urged the FBI to “get back to the basics” Saturday night after an embarrassing series of mistakes in connection with the Parkland, Fla., massacre. “Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter,” the president tweeted late Saturday. “This is not acceptable.” The president then asserted that the agency was perhaps distracted by the investigation into possible Trump administration ties to Russia. “They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign,” the president wrote. “There is no collusion.

Adam Rippon, the openly gay figure skater who helped the United States win a bronze medal in team competition and became one of the biggest breakout stars of the PyeongChang Olympics, has gotten his first big break before the Winter Games have even concluded. Rippon, a darling of the competition for saying things that have been at turns smart, creative, and refreshing for viewers, has been hired by NBC as a correspondent for the rest of the Games. NBC confirmed the news, first reported by USA Today, with Rippon expected to work on TV as well as the digital and

Florida Student Activists Want to ´Dismantle´

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence said she is taking a year-long break from acting to focus on activism and helping to “fix our democracy.” The Hollywood A-lister revealed her grand future plans on Thursday while promoting her new movie “Red Sparrow.” “I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m going to be working with this organization I’m a part of: Represent. Us. It’s just trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Jill Abramson Reboots Her ´High-Tech
Lynching´ of Clarence Thomas

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:
