  • ADVANCE/DECLINE LINE: -2152 (-1338)

  • VIX:  37.32 +13.57% YTD PERFORMANCE: +110.25%
  • SPX PUT/CALL RATIO: 2.66 from 1.91 (+38.96%)

 

CREDIT/ECONOMIC MARKET LOOK:

 

FIXED INCOME: by our score this is a 3.7 standard deviation move in 10yr UST bonds; Bernanke made the entire fixed income complex go haywire.  The 10 year yields making lower-lows is very bearish for both economic growth and confidence.

  • TED SPREAD: 35.80
  • 3-MONTH T-BILL YIELD: 0.01%
  • 10-Year: 1.88 from 1.95     
  • YIELD CURVE: 1.67 from 1.77

 

MACRO DATA POINTS (Bloomberg Estimates):

  • 8:30 a.m.: Jobless claims, est. 420k, prior 428k
  • 9:45 a.m.: Bloomberg consumer comfort, prior (-49.3)
  • 10 a.m.: Leading indicators, est. 0.1%, prior 0.5%
  • 10 a.m.: House price index, M/m, est. 0.1%, prior 0.9%
  • 10 a.m.: Freddie Mac mortgage rates
  • 10:30 a.m.: EIA natural gas storage
  • 1 p.m.: U.S. to sell $11b 10-yr TIPS reopening

 

 WHAT TO WATCH:

  • United Technologies agrees to buy Goodrich for $16.5b, or $127.50-shr
  • Hewlett-Packard’s board said to meet today; said to plan to consider firing CEO Leo Apotheker
  • Hewlett-Packard deal to buy Autonomy will still go through, absent “material adverse change,” even if CEO ousted: Bernstein
  • Australian dollar drops to parity with U.S. currency
  • LivingSocial may seek more than $200m in private funding rather than seek IPO
  • Mosaic to replace National Semiconductor in S&P 500

COMMODITY/GROWTH EXPECTATION

 

COMMODITIES: crashing Copper looks like the Hang Seng this morning; down -5% in a straight line and down -21% since QE2 (Februray)

 

OIL: is in what I call a Bearish Formation - bearish on all 3 of my risk management durations (TRADE, TREND, and TAIL)

 

GOLD: this is key and why I don't own it; now Gold becomes a source of liquidity for any Global Macro hedge fund; $1821 support broke

EUROPEAN MARKETS

 

EUROPE = train wreck - Period.  If you're a European country index down -3% this morning you are outperforming!

 

Russia is called a “Petro-Dollar” market; this stupid twist is Dollar bullish; Dollar bullish bearish for Oil, bearish for Russia

 

GERMANY: down -3.9% as the DAX fails at its immediate-term TRADE line of 5480; no support to 5019 - could re-test the lows.
