Tackle Today: May You Live in Interesting Times

≈ Oh, the irony. ≈

“May you live in interesting times” is an expression said to the translation of a traditional Chinese curse. The expression is used ironically used to express that life is better in uninteresting times rather than interesting times which usually are a sign of turmoil and trouble.

We are certainly living in interesting times in the markets: 

  • Oil crashed over the weekend in record-setting fashion as Saudi Arabia starts a price war with Russia
  • The 30y is trading below 1.0% for the first time ever 
  • Equities quickly crashed overnight to limit-down levels that halted trading (a first since the financial crisis) 
  • Trader’s are expecting another emergency rate cut which would be the second under a week
  • Speculation of the Fed resuming QE and perhaps other more drastic measures to calm stock market nerves 

All of this in addition to coronavirus fears and the impact they will have on human life and the economy. There is a lot going on today and we will be providing the same world-class analysis we have provided since the start of the coronavirus on all of our live shows today and the Trading Justice podcast that will be released later tonight.


Chart of the Day

5% Overnight

Trading on futures died overnight as equities crashed 5% overnight which triggered limit down measures that had not occurred since the financial crisis. Trading will resume at the market open which will be perhaps one of the most volatile opening in markets in some time.
