yes credit to FM who time and time again pulls out multiday/week multifig trades.
numbers behind s&p. 144ema 1893, 38.2% fib of 2014 low/high 1894. fwiw i played this thru daily call 1895 options. there was the outside chance of 1881 10 month (which is still possible) and thats too big a stop for me.
the red line lol, looks to still be in play next week. now that its pulled away to downside i bet it gets tested at least once next week as i very much doubt 126 evens will be next weeks high. on pure fundamentals it should be, but of course it cant since at least one of these skirmishes is going to flare up again.
re s&p looks like close at 23.6 fib at 1931.5 on cards. and chance of outside bullish close. they will be dancing jigs on cnbc.

"Mr Putin has failed equally to drive a wedge between America and Europe, or to paralyse the EU by playing off one country against another."

according to Ambrose. That is starting to look a tad premature as an opinion.

The fact of the matter is that no-one in Europe wants a war. That includes the Ukrainian civilians on both sides of the conflict. So they ship in mercenaries..... but Europe just does not want this conflict. Period.

"The American tendency to... escalation, the isolation, demonization, and attacking of enemies has not proven effective. The last successful major military action the US conducted was the Normandy landing. Everything else – Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan – was a clear failure.

Moving NATO units towards the Polish border and thinking about arming Ukraine is a continuation of a lack of diplomacy"

From the German article today. Which was published in Russian, English and German. The author clearly does not believe that the U.S. can or has logged up a lot of military success.

As for Normandy (mentioned above), it is pretty much established that the Nazis were stopped by the Russians and 23 million Russian WWII dead prove it.

At least some people in Europe are wondering if they are currently on the right side of history or NOT. The shifting sands of international geo-politics....

To some it seems the United States can move with impunity, or at least with total disregard for international law and global political stability.

"Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States has ringed Russia with military bases, nuclear warplanes and missiles as part of its Nato Enlargement Project. Reneging on a promise made to Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1990 that Nato would not expand "one inch to the east", Nato has, in effect, militarily occupied eastern Europe. In the former Soviet Caucasus, Nato's expansion is the biggest military build-up since the Second World War."

If the Europeans come to see that this strategy is perhaps NOT in their interests (and it's not) then accommodation with Russia over the Ukraine could come rather more quickly than certain belligerent forces would like. And that would be good for stocks at least in the short term.

Today "The Russian and Chinese central banks have agreed a draft currency swap agreement, which will allow them to increase trade in domestic currencies and cut the dependence on the US dollar in bilateral payments."

The Europeans seems to be having serious second thoughts about the whole Russian confrontation. Russia making soothing noises.

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard won't be pleased: "The Kremlin is counting on.... capital from China to offset the loss of Western money. This is a pipedream. China's Xi Jinping drove a brutal bargain in May on a future Gazprom pipeline, securing a price near $350 per 1,000 cubic metres that is barely above Russia's production costs.
Pieties aside, the two countries are rivals in central Asia"

At any rate short squeeze in stocks can be expected to continue as long as this trend towards geo-political accommodation continues. Bar another false flag I don't see why it won't.

US equity markets are surging back to pre-geopoltical risk highs on the back of a headline proclaiming Russia's military drill over...

RUSSIAN MILITARY EXERCISES THAT WORRIED U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE HAVE BEEN FINISHED - RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY
AIRCRAFT WHICH TOOK PART IN ASHULUK DRILLS RETURN TO PERMANENT BASES - RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY

The sheer idiocy of this move is that it was announced back on Monday that the drill would end Friday, just as was reported here and everywhere.

This is in no way a de-escalation - in fact, had Russia continued the exercise that would have been a clear provocation. But as usual Johnny 5 ignites momentum first, finds out he never actually read between the original lines, and asks questions never.

MOSCOW: Russia's Defence Ministry said late on Friday that it had finished military exercises it was conducting near the border with Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting Ukrainian government forces, Interfax news agency reported.

"Aircraft taking part in exercises have been redeployed from temporary to their permanent air bases, anti-aircraft missile units ... have started to load their equipment to depart to their permanent positions," Interfax reported, citing the ministry's press service.

Markets in Europe are closing in a decisive risk-off posture. U.S. markets so far have not followed suit. There still is a lot of uncertainty about what will happen over the weekend. The EURUSD is back testing 1.3400 (risk-off trade?).



  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets remain lower again  The 10-yr bund is 1.05% -5bp. The 1.00% line is an obvious psychological target. Peripheral bond yields are now lower on the day.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt  yield is 2.46%  -5bp.  Can the  the +25bp BOE rate by end-2014 be in question?
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.39%, -6bp. The psychological pivot remains 2.50%
  • Far East equities closed  mostly lower. Bourses in Europe are ending lower. U.S. shares have rebounded. We are still keeping an eye on the closes

red, I posted a chart with your channel top - agree on the level

It has been a month since we had a serious correction and I am using 1% as what I would consider serious (that would be at 1.3466, which is around the 20 day mva and my reversion to mean).

All I know is betting on correction attempts to follow through has been a losing bet for the past month so see if this time is different.

I would use 1,34 as the tipping point that would have to become support to encourage a run at stops.

The European session began with heightened risk aversion sentiment after US President Obama authorized targeted air strikes in Iraq. Safe haven flows supported Yen and Swiss franc currencies. However, much of the risk-off sentiment wore off as the session progress as Iraq airstrike declaration was seen in a humanitarian light by the US rather than any pro-long re-entry of the Iraq war.

Markets in Europe are in a full-fledged risk-off posture early Friday with the U.S. re-engaging militarily in Iraq. 10-yr bond yields are falling to new recent lows and some to record lows equities are falling. The EURUSD is back testing 1.3400 (risk-off trade?).



  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are lower again  The 10-yr bund is 1.04% -4bp. The 1.00% line is an obvious psychological target. Peripheral bond yields are higher.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt  yield is 2.43%  -7bp.  Is the +25bp BOE rate by end-2014 in question?
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.37%, -8bp. The psychological pivot remains 2.50%
  • Far East equities closed  mostly lower. Bourses in Europe are sharply lower. U.S. share futures are down. This could be a rocky day in U.S. equities later.

    The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields. This aligns all the colors in the chart to reflect risk-on (green) and risk-off(red).

In line with the general trend for Current Account Imbalances to fall, the trend in the Chinese Current Account Surplus is down. Which means that the Chinese export of capital is also down. Put simply: less finance for deficit nations is available.

We live in a world where economic growth was built on massive external imbalances and huge international capital flows. Those imbalances and those capital flows are falling.

The Australian RBA just released its outlook for the next two years and economic growth forecasts have been downgraded.

Some ascribed the USD/JPY break below 102 last night to Obama's announcement that he will be bombing rebels in Iraq (presumably the same rebels the U.S. is arming in Syria). The geopolitical explanation for this move looks LAME to me. But geopolitics is everywhere. Apparently the situation in the Ukraine is critical.... geopolitics is everywhere.

No sign of life from the chinless deviants in Europe.... and not much clarity on anything. Moves to close speculative and margin positions are not surprising in these conditions.

Back to Iraq

ok, so it is 0 who finally answers my Q about boots:
Obama authorizes U.S. airstrikes in Iraq as needed

9:52 p.m. EDT - LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- President Barack Obama said Thursday evening that he has authorized the U.S. military to conduct airstrikes against Islamist forces as needed, but he said the nation would not send new ground troops there. Speaking in a televised address, Obama said such airstrikes would be made to protect U.S. personnel and facilities around the country, specifying the threat to the northern city of Erbil. The president also confirmed reports that U.S. planes had begun humanitarian air drops to prevent a "genocide" by Islamist ISIS forces against religious minorities in northern Iraq. Among other populations at risk, thousands of Yazidis, a Kurdish-speaking, non-Muslim minority group, are reportedly stranded in a mountain region and are at risk of starvation.

CHAPTER 6A - PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE
SUBCHAPTER II - GENERAL POWERS AND DUTIESPart G—Quarantine and Inspection

practical demonstration of what it means:
Liberia, Sierra Leone Take Dramatic Steps to Slow Ebola Outbreak - wsj

- soldiers Cut Off Access to Large Areas
- soldiers and police at checkpoints begin halting all road travel entering and leaving counties
- President declares a state of emergency
--- instituting extraordinary measures, including, if need be, the suspensions of certain rights and privileges
- soldiers in riot gear block roads leading to most infected districts
- may begin quarantining people in their homes
- at airports, staff begins screening outbound passengers for fevers
--
The "exit trick":
- appear as first responder and official on public-health-related trips exempt from the restrictions.
BUT BE WARNED: it is a dangerous business
"Breaking a federal quarantine order is punishable by fines and imprisonment"
