On Monday, when the market hit its absolute blow off top phase and Robinhooders sent the stock of bankrupt Hertz as high as $6.25, resulting in a market cap of just under $900 million - a testament to the absolute idiocy of capital markets - we decided to double down on this idiocy and said that "we hope the company sells a few hundred million worth of stock - after all there is apparently endless demand for its shares - just so we can test the so-called "price discovery" of Powell's latest and greatest FOMO bubble."
Well, it turns out that some banker at Jefferies read us, however ignoring the clear sarcasm of this proposal decided to turn it into what may soon be the most insane and/or stunning, maybe even legendary capital markets product ever proposed: an Initial Bankruptcy Offering. You see, after the close on Thursday, Jefferies filed a motion in the Hertz bankruptcy case, seeking to sell $500 million in bankrupt Hertz stock (or 246,775,008 HTZ shares) in a "unique opportunity" to "raise capital on terms that are far superior to any debtor-in-possession financing."
Why is Jefferies proposing this deal? Because "the recent market prices of and the trading volumes in Hertz’s common stock potentially present a unique opportunity for the Debtors to raise capital on terms that are far superior to any debtor-in-possession financing."
In other words, the feverish retail participation in the most ridiculous asset bubble ever created by the Fed is just the opportunity Jefferies - and Hertz - needed to turn the bankruptcy process on its head.

Update (1645ET): As Houston vies for LA and Phoenix to succeed NYC as America's biggest COVID-19 hot spot, the Houston Chronicle reports that health officials may reopen a COVID-19 hospital while officials weigh whether to reimpose a stay at home order. Such a move would undoubtedly rattle stocks, even after Thursday's massive dive.
The move to reopen a designated COVID-19 hospital comes as hospitalizations due to the virus have reached their highest levels since the outbreak began.

Minneapolis DRS2 15:40 & London Red, agree no sell signal of EUR in daily chart. Right now, JPY, CHF and EUR are benefited from the plunge of stock market. However, if EUR makes 3 try to break the upside channel resistance and fail, that means an alert of downside risk.

JP a lot of the good stuff that u can see on other side they are still holding on to today with slight up/flat or small losses today. they may squeeze those tomorrow and then that may be close to it. monday could be mixed with a higher finish or may drag into tuesday.

The Federal Reserve is wrong so often. I see the numbers also, and do MUCH better than they do. We will have a very good Third Quarter, a great Fourth Quarter, and one of our best ever years in 2021. We will also soon have a Vaccine & Therapeutics/Cure. That’s my opinion. WATCH!

some robinhood users appear not to have got the memo that fangdd is not quite Faang.
euro is unwillingly moving lower as stocks hit new lows, but its not making lows itself, that tells u something. euro will be fine unless under 11320, then they will fight over who is first out. while stock losses within expectations and not a rout, euro likely to see dip buying.
Minneapolis DRS2 15:40:25 GMT - 06/11/2020
EUR risk of downside is imminent? I like EUR downside too, but to say it is imminent is IMHO a bit presumptuous.
Right now price is consolidating between 1340 and 1400, and in an even tighter range between 1380 and 1400. Judging from the current charts, it looks like if another trendline test occurs immediately, then EUR/USD will get sold back down from 1440 or 1450.
For speculative purposes only, I would expect further tests tomorrow (end of week news) or Monday (Jay's Monday effect). Whatever high is hit (probably 1500 or more) will set a high for the rest of next week.
That does not mean that 1500 will be the all time high, or the YTD high or whatever high. It just means that there will be a lot of selling around 1500 and you can make a reasonable profit.

After all the rioting that has taken place in the US, does anyone still care about the covid-19 stuff?
Here in the upper midwest, people have no appetite for "reinstituting earlier precautions" after all the s*** that just went down.
From a financial and trading perspective, it might be more practical to worry about the effects of an economy that is draining of actual participants.
AT Trader john 09:55:24 GMT - 06/11/2020
One other thing to watch is worry about a second COVID-19 wave in the U.S. There have been a number of outbreaks in states not earlier affected. It might be time to re-institute some if the earlier precautions. People tend to have short memories...

standing still is going backwards. this is what powell has conditioned mkt to. no new action is seen as a negative. but they will do more going forward so its still btfd c 3k.

Good Question Re:Powell. He might be wondering himself. His message seemed to be yesterday that the economic recovery would be gradual. It has taken the markets a while to digest what he said. Note in the table below that interest rates and equities have fallen. There has probably been too much euphoria in stocks? All I can suggest is to play this by ear.

The market is throwing you peaches! Enjoy them and make the trade already.
And if you really want to know what Jerome (I love how we're all on a first name basis with some guy we haven't met) is up to, he's pulling whatever levers he has to in order to keep the financial structure from falling down. We are all still here to enjoy those peaches, so no...he didn't do anything wrong.
