“I Love The Smell Of Liquidation In The Morning…”

Economic data this morning was mixed enough to perhaps be goldilocks for The Fed (better than expected claims data and Empire Fed survey trumped by weak and revised down retail sales, weaker industrial production, and falling capacity utilization): not bad enough to warrant a pause and not strong enough to encourage The Fed to hike 100bps next week.

Additionally, with traders facing $3.2 trillion of options expiration and the beginning of the buyback-blackout window tomorrow, it is perhaps not surprising that we puked hard today as derisking was the name of the game and the early action had the stench of liquidation across many markets.

For the gold-bugs, let’s hope real-yields are being mispriced here…

WTI Crude tumbled lower on the day…

And finally, how does S&P 500 at 2000 sound?

Or Nasdaq 10,000 in the short-term?
