Trump’s Trade Talk Tanks Stocks… Until Unsourced Rumor Sparks Buying-Panic

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Trump's actual words on tape prompted a notable plunge in stocks yesterday and his thoghts were confirmed by Wilbur Ross and Larry Kudlow. However, in this new normal of muppetry, today saw an unsourced rumor from Bloomberg saying that a deal is close (yeah, seriously), spark a short-squeeze-ignited ramp to erase all those losses…

But we note that the market was unable to crack that pre-plunge level.

All of which reminds us of the golden rule (and no, it never gets old!!!)…

The odds of a trade-deal rebounded to a coin-flip today (still well off the 70-plus percent odds from early November). It's now been 53 days since Trump announced that the phase one deal was "complete"…

Finally, as Bloomberg reports, Charles Freeman, CEO of Adaptfirst Investments, flags a warning sign for the S&P 500. Normalizing the S&P 500 for earnings suggests the price dispersion is even bigger than during the tech bubble of the late 1990s.

His point is, if earnings start to crack in 2020, the fallout will be much worse than it was back then.
