parallel markets probably have little effect on each other
cross-markets however... are another story
Soon it will be time to consider and formulate 2015 trading market's themes.

Price Linkages
From my very start in finance in 1972, I've always been fascinated with the relationships of separate markets to one another. As traders we are always looking for a leg up by working a little harder than others. We also want to keep from getting blindsided by developments in parallel markets. One thing I publish daily is a correlation table daily on It is free under Premium Trading Tools for those who are registered for the website. I run the correlations in a short four-week time frame to pick up changes in relationships as they are developing. MORE...

"If every time the stock market tries to correct... the plunge protection team... stops the correction...unrealistic values are perpetuated."

Indeed, but while this is happening you go with the price action and keep a wary eye on the exit.

Renzi refused the possibility for further sanctions on Russia this week. Now Hollande is 'breaking ranks'. The move away from sanctions is unmistakeable even without Kerry going all conciliatory. Now we have a rally in Oil, EUR/RUB was up 4.3% today. The Rouble is a screaming buy.

Meanwhile back at the farm everyone on the stock market is a happy chappy and we will close the year at record highs.

I have the feeling that my trading platform is actually divided into 2 channels
1 - the data feeding channel into my chart and dealing station
2 - the outflow channel fro my computer to the dealers server
I have been frustrated by watching prices change on my dealing station and taking what looks like 2+ seconds to have my order authenticated / accepted . It can be particularly frustrating when trying to scalp and even more so when trying to close a trade - when playing for +/- 10 pips.

Yes the Sony Hack is sooooooo important to the Hollywood Friends of the WH.

This massive-loss-making "fat-finger" - resulting in millions of losses - would normally be followed by "probes" from the exchange into "erroneous trades" and then rapidly accompanied by the exchanges busting all the losing trades.

So, the question is - why hasn't the other side of yesterday's berserk "fat-finger" buying spree in SPY spoken out in anger that its massive money losing trade will not be DKed?

So why would the massive losing counterparty on these far out of the money trades not come forward? Complain? Explain? And who can afford to swallow losses on that scale so easily.

As we suggested yesterday, probably because the Fed is willing to "eat" the losses rather than explain why it buys SPY, via Citadel, on DirectEdge.

I am curious to hear n see the evidence of how the US came to determine who exactly is behind the Sony embarrassment.

So far North Korea, hacktivists and China have been variously fingered.

Obama preesser Scheduled for 18:30 GMT (13:30 EDT) on the Sony hack. Its been widely reported that the government is blaming North Korea for the hack. Keep in mind that Sony is a Japanese corporation and Japan and North Korea have a long history. In this case, the States are treating the Sony subsidiary as a U.S. corporation.

19 December-- 17:10 GMT- Current Market Conditions
Markets remain in a  RISK ON posture early heading into Christmas week. Conventional wisdom is that fund managers  want  to window dress their portfolios for their end of year reports to show they are invested in the winners for the year, and this gives shares an upward bias this time of year.

  • In forex, the USD is trading higher. The EUR is mostly weaker on its key crosses  
  • The Commodity Currencies (AUD, CAD and NZD) are weaker vs. the USD. Gold and oil prices are up.
  • In the Far East, equities closed higher. The Japanese 10-yr JGB yield is 0.360%. +1 bp. The BOJ kept its easing bias.
  • Key European bourses are lower. The 10-yr bund yield is 0.592%, -2.1bp. The U.K. yield is 1.848%,  -2.0bp. European peripheral bond yields are higher.
  • The U.S 10-yr note yield is 2.177%, -2.9bp Equities are higher.
The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields.

seeing as that is all for "data" now, maybe a risk-generating headline could come in spook players a bit now that U.S. officials are treating a cyberattack on Sony Pictures as a "serious national security matter," with the National Security Council considering a proportionate response, the White House said Thursday.

But it should be preferably disproportionate rather than proportionate which would be showing respect rather than who is topdog
