Rush just reported about the hack.
hack caused this kind of market move
lots of people lost and made money on this
traders sold first and asked questions later
The Muslims would never attack one of their own.
He’s their spokesman
These damn geeks are probably on the public dole and sitting home figuring out how to get into these accounts.
UPDATE: Associated Press twitter reportedly hacked by ‘Syrian Electronic Army’
I’m reminded of the scene in Airplane when the goofball unplugs the runway lights.... “Just kidding.”
Syria..people we are arming?????
It boggles my mind how much money was made and lost running those stops?
I wonder if the trades will get busted
Argh, beaten by a girl! :-D
Note to AP: change password from “WeLuvBarack”. It’s too obvious.
Did CNN run with it?
now the terrorists know how much damage they can do just by hacking a news source.
Millions made and lost in seconds.
Do those hands have blood on them lol
do you know how much time went by before it was removed
Just an admonition to the media, the ‘powers that be’ and the White House, “when you mess with the truth, you open yourself up to unintended consequences.
BTW, if you have your money in a mechanism that is so volatile and so fickle as to be instantly and significantly affected by something such as this, a prudent person would re-evaluate their position and where they have their assets....
This is why I don’t invest in the market, I just don’t get it, had I been in the market, I would have expected it to sharply spike up on this news.
CNBC screen message was that it was up 4 minutes.
About 2-3 minutes total
It’s called ‘Mehndi’. :-)
Say it ain’t so!
The headline should have been
“Workplace violence” at the white house lol
LOL at the fools who believed it..if there had been an explosion at the White House we wouldn’t have needed a tweet from the AP to prove it
I was watching the Fox biz channel when this was going on, and I need to go change my underwear. It dropped 100 points so fast that the talking heads didn’t even notice what was going on.
As Hillary would say: What difference does it make?
I bet CNN’s White House Correspondent sitting in the White House Press Room called Jay Carney to confirm whether or not there had been an explosion in the White House.
Huh? I would think that an explosion at the WH would be interpreted as good news for the markets. A world free of that marxist POS would be a lot more prosperous. Even Biden would be an improvement over our evil commie.
I had an order in to sell some RIG calls for 1.43 and it was sitting at 1.41 and moving my way. Within 1 second it was 1.15 and moving down. It has recovered now to 1.25, but that’s a long way from 1.40’s. This is my income money for the month. I hope I get another chance today.
i would have the opposite would happen...an immediate peak to a new record and then once in sunk in that the liar thief bernaccccky might have to stop ruinning the dollar and forcing a false run to stocks, that it would start tanking to the bottem!!!!!!! just a thought!?
Whether a senile evil commie is preferred to a non-senile evil commie is, IMHO, not clear.
I don't think it took a dive over Obama supposedly being injuried. It probably took a dive because it meant Uncle Joe would be taking over.
That would have been a mind-bender.
And I bet Brian Ross was quick to get online to find out if a tea party member did it..gotta love these fake tweets though, like the one that says “Obama says I have no f*ckin clue what Im doing” If Obama did say that it would be the first time I ever agreed with him
Why was he Just injured?
“Whether a senile evil commie is preferred to a non-senile evil commie is, IMHO, not clear.”
The best historical example is Mao. When he first assumed power, Mao was a genocidal maniac. However as he grew older and out of the picture, his subodinates did moderate China to some degree.
I would have thought the market would have gone up...
Everyone knows 0baMao is never home.
Because you’re an evil capitalist versus those good capitalists at the TBTF banks.
With Biden as the VP? lol
we are lucky it didn’t go to zero!
Some “kid”, hacking out of his Mom’s basement, is about to have a very, very bad day.
