    Anyone know why the Spoos just started moving like crazy at 3:15pm? Its moving up/down 5 points at a time.
  2. I was just gonna post that same thing. Unbelievable.
  3. My Jasper program went CRAZY! ES covered 6 points in a second! Man I bet people got burned on that one. I've never seen it that volatile. That was NASTY.

    F*cking assholes in the pit that jerk it around to make some $$$, I guess, the NQ hardly did move. This bullshit is one of the reasons I don't trade ES any more.
  5. must have been a typo error
  6. That was just totally disorderly movement. Looks like a program went off and triggered another program -- or some type of computer FU.

    I've never seen it like that. I'm glad I didn't pick today to start trading.

    Ps: You can look at the graph and tell something went haywire -- they play dirty games but this reeks of something more. It looks like pure static.

    there was also HUGE vol on the ES almost 40k contracts in a 5 minute span. could mark a short term top? .:confused:
  8. :confused:
  9. no typo. squawk was calling out 2-3 handle spreads..4X6 5X8 3X5 in that order that fast.
  10. Seth,

    Jasper is a program I am writing to help me with order managment via IB. I don't like their interface or software too much so I came up with my own autotrader. Its coming along slowly but surely ...
