The State Of Markets

Authored by Sven Henrich via NorthmanTrader.com,

No new highs, no new lows, lots of chop and still no decisions on anything. New highs or not, trade deal or not, hard Brexit or not, the list goes on and on.

Bulls remain undeterred and confident that an ever more aggressive and interventionist Fed will bring the ship home to new highs, while economic and earnings data continue to show weakening as evidenced again this week by negative retail sales, negative industrial production and the New York Fed Nowcast dropping to 1.04% real GDP for Q4.

Yet markets again closed north of 143% market cap to GDP (Hitting the Wall) as another Opex week managed to crush the $VIX again while the Fed commenced its $60B per month treasury bills buying program.

So it remains a battle between artificial intervention and macro data signaling a rising recession risk:
