The S&P managed to scramble back above 4,000…

Finally, in case you're wondering about these insane swings in the 'most traded' stock markets in the world, look no further than thew total evisceration of market liquidity…

Financial 'stability' turns to fragility as repositioning books of any size has become impossible.
