First you go low on high volume, then you go high on low volume.
Which Way Wednesday – Powell And PPI And $3Tn More Stimulus
The US is already running a $3Tn deficit in Q2 and no country in history has ever had to borrow so much money in such a short period of time so jacking that number up to $6Tn is concerning.
TGI Thursday – Up 20% From The Lows, What Happens Next?

Federally Fueled Friday – Fed Buys A Rally For $1.5Tn – Will It Last?

Faltering Friday – Weak Week Ends In A Whimper
We had a nice rally Wednesday and Thursday, after the Fed Minutes but that's gone now and we're back where we were on the 10th – two wasted weeks in the market.

$10,000 Thursday – Hedging Pays Off – Again!
300% of their GDP is debt and half of it has been added since the Financial Crisis (10 years) so we're talking about $23 trillion in debt added in 10 years, which is about 15% of China's GDP added in debt each year to hit their 7% growth targets.
Worry-Free Wednesday?
Not much point in even tracking the virus, which is now called Covid-19, since it doesn't seem to be able to affect the markets or, as Powell said yesterday, whatever economic damage is done, China will make it up with stimulus.
