Tariff Tantrum Ends With Massive Short Squeeze

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Begun The Trade War Has… and that means the end of the world, apparently?

Or not…While President Trump is being blamed for this week’s ugliness in stock markets, some more open-minded observers could see a few other factors involved…

If The Dow closed down 1% today it would be four 1%-down-days in a row – the first time since August 2015 (the China deval and flash crash).

BUT… it turns out that Trade Wars are good!

On the day, Small Caps outperformed, but it seems investors are not in the least bit worried that the world is ending due to Trump tariffs… (/sarc)

As Gluskin-Sheff’s David Rosenberg notes, the recovery in the stock market is being led by health care, consumer staples and telecom — the recession sectors! How interesting. Cyclically-sensitive Transports, meanwhile, are getting trampled.

Total buying panic into safe-havens AAPL and FANGs… buybacks anyone?

Bwuahahaha – look at NFLX!!

Today’s jump in stocks off the opening lows was a massive short-squeeze… “Most Shorted” stocks are up 4.7% from the lows today!

The Dow bounced back to its Fib38.2% retracement of the big drop…

S&P closed back above its 100DMA…

And remember the massacre in gunmaker stocks overnight? Everything’s fine now…

Still all-in-all, not a pretty week…

Vols across all major equity indices were higher on the week…

But VIX was monkeyhammered lower today after tagging a 26 handle… all the way back down to 19 and change…

Treasury yields jumped today amid chatter of rate-locks on looming issuance, but on the week 30Y Yields were 2bps lower and 5Y 1bp higher…

The Dollar Index ended the week higher for the 4th of the last 5 weeks…

Critically however, the last two days have seen the dollar slump back from the Mnuchin Massacre ledge once again…

Copper and Crude were clubbed like a baby seal this week as gold and silver limped back up towards unchanged…

On the week, Palladium was pounded and Silver was best among the PMs…

Bitcoin had a good week, up 11% and back above $11,000, as Ripple lost some ground… This is the only the 3rd up week for Cryptocurrencies this year.

Finally, we note that Global Macro-economic data has disappointed to the downside for 7 straight weeks and is now at its lowest since September…and Global Stocks seem to be catching down to that…
