A very noisy gappy day with much larger volume than in recent days (which all dried up in the afternoon session until the close – for the heaviest volume day in a month) in US equities. European comments lifted us early in a correlated-risk-on manner until Bernanke’s speech which hit markets like a meteor – stops were run up and down – but by the close equities and the USD ended fractionally lower from pre-Ben (notably up on the day to save the month for the Dow), Gold considerably up from pre-Ben, Treasury yields down notably from pre-Ben. Near six-month highs in Gold and five-month highs in Silver were the real movers today – with their largest gains in two months. VIX ended marginally lower at 17.5% (-0.3vols); credit was very thin today and tracked stocks in general (though less volatile); USD ended the week -0.5% which matches Oil’s +0.5% on the week as Copper underperformed. Silver has overtaken Stocks as the Year-to-date winner once again…

Stocks were a mess all day post-Ben – especially the afternoon noise…but closed at VWAP – amid very heavy volume (month-end and all) but seemed to echo the last Friday buying. We closed at the low volume node (left hand distribution) of the recent range – having auctioned up early on, suspect we test back down by Sunday night…

It’s month-end and the need to exit sizable positions was clear above but the last few minutes were quite fascinating in terms of the Algos In Action. Someone needed to dump a lot so they emplyed the ‘tickle’ algo to lift on low volume but higher block size, gradually wiping out the stack of orders encouraging a trend, getting followers to buy-in (as the crowd sees rising block size into and above VWAP – though not massive volume we should note), then flush their big block well above the start of the startegy – with any luck somewhere around VWAP…
