CREDIT/ECONOMIC MARKET LOOK:


FED – we always find it funny to watch these cracker jack market politicians blame “speculators” on commodity inflation when the causality associated with what we have to speculate on is our expectations of their policy whispers. After listening to how conflicted/compromised Evans really is yesterday, Dollar fell and Gold/Oil/BasicMatStocks ripped. It’s the game we are in, sadly. So we’re playing it.

COMMODITY/GROWTH EXPECTATION (HEADLINES FROM BLOOMBERG)

GOLD – so we bought that, for a trade. The new risk range for Gold is now $1, so we’ll probably sell it if we see the high end of that range as we think this Fed iQe4 upgrade thing is more about the expectation than Bernanke actually delivering on it next week. Stay tuned. We have no idea what Bernanke is going to do vs what he should do (nothing).

EUROPEAN MARKETS


GERMANY – Spain’s Rajoy idiotically wages “battle” vs the Germans this morning saying “I am waging it.” We couldn’t make that up if we tried, but these guys fighting about economic gravity is going to keep a lid on whatever is left of this European squeeze to lower highs. All European indices remain in Bearish Formations (bearish across all 3 of my risk mgt durations, TRADE/TREND/TAIL).
