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.

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.

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

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

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.

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides. (Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump. One possibility that Biden´s longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats

Indictment: Russians also tried to help

WASHINGTON – It turns out Donald Trump wasn’t the only candidate the Russians allegedly tried to help during the 2016 presidential campaign. A 37-page indictment resulting from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation shows that Russian nationals and businesses also worked to boost the campaigns of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Green party nominee Jill Stein in an effort to damage Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Russians “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump,” according to the

A regional supermarket chain is reportedly planning to close up to 200 shops as its parent company prepares to file for bankruptcy. Bi-Lo LLC, the parent company of Winn-Dixie, is preparing a potential bankruptcy filing as soon as next month, people with knowledge of the situation told Bloomberg. Winn-Dixie will shutter close to 200 locations either before or after the filing, one person with knowledge of the situation told Bloomberg. There are currently roughly 500 Winn-Dixie locations in the Southeastern part of the US, primarily in Florida. Amazon´s acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017 has served as a major shake-up

Lisa Marie Presley claims she’s in the red — to the tune of $16.7 million. In court documents relating to Presley’s ongoing divorce from Michael Lockwood, it was revealed that Elvis’ daughter owes debts in a number of areas, including income taxes, a defaulted mortgage and credit card bills. According to the documents, which were filed on Wednesday and obtained by PEOPLE Friday, Justin Stiegemeyer, Presley’s current business manager who is responsible for “day-to-day finances and paying all of her bills,” disclosed that the 50-year-old had first learned of her debt while her old business manager Provident Financial Management was

Lindsey Vonn didn´t have to make any excuses for her sixth-place finish in Saturday´s super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics. TV analysts, newspaper writers, Twitter users and fans were already making them for her: Since Vonn happened to be the first skier out of the gate, she was at a tremendous disadvantage, one that proved fatal when she slipped near the end of the course, costing her precious time that would have easily won her gold.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — The miserable, biting cold and wind whipping through the Taebaek Mountains has subsided, giving way to sun-splashed mornings and pleasantly brisk temperatures. The norovirus outbreak that sent dozens into violent stomach illness has seemingly been contained. The agenda-wielding political figures have vacated the premises, yielding the Olympic stage to the athletes. (Snip) Thank goodness for figure skater Adam Rippon, whose feud with Vice President Pence has at least provided a cultural flashpoint for Team USA. But even his celebrity turn here masks a sad truth: In a sport where the Americans have put forward exceptional Olympic

The FBI admitted Friday that it received a detailed tip about accused Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz in January, but failed to follow up and investigate. Within hours of the revelation, Florida Gov. Rick Scott demanded FBI Director Christopher Wray’s resignation – despite Wray offering an apology to the family of victims. (Snip) In a statement, the FBI said that a person close to Cruz, who has allegedly confessed to killing 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., called the FBI tip line with concerns on Jan. 5.

With the Lunar New Year round the corner, Chinese around the world are preparing to welcome the Year of the Dog. But in Malaysia, where people of ethnic Chinese descent make up almost a quarter of the population, images of the dog have been omitted fromLunar New Year decorations and merchandise for fear of offending the country´s Muslim majority. The omission has raised hackles in the Chinese community and caused concern among Malaysians of all faiths, who see it as yet another symptom of the country´s growing Islamic conservatism, driven by the government´s flirtation with hardline Islamist policies and a

U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon did not medal in his final event at the 2018 Winter Olympics, but he remains an Olympic star nonetheless. Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson. At the time of the party, Trump had been married to the Slovenian model Melania Knauss for less than two years; their son, Barron, was a few

Mitt Romney said Friday that the nation must act swiftly to address the scourge of gun violence, stating that he was open to tougher measures like "enhanced background checks" if they would help keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. "What happened is unthinkable and unimaginable," he said after offering prayers for the victims of the Florida shooting. "We must take action to prevent tragedies like this from happening again."

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.
