Even if one doesn't care a blessed penny what the essenpee did 20 years ago, there are enough people that do, and set their little bots to that tune. self-fulfilling herdspeak.

The market will rally because no one expects it to. People will shrug, scratch their heads, and count their winnings. Same playbook as usual.

Risk Is Here, What Are You Going To Do?

Ooh, glad I wasn't around today...inverted yield curve jitters again. Nothing new there. $VIX finally hit the "nervous" level. Same old same old, but August illiquidity kicked in and the downside accelerated.

The big money already went light equities before today. the 3 and 10 has been inverted since May. Suddenly the gold argument makes sense. Hindsight.

Nothing we learned today was new. Algorithmic trading doesn't think. It responds. There is nothing fundamental that would rationalize this move aside from the bond market imploding.

So the market move was inverted to the current temperatures this summer. And it will bask in the headlines tonight and steal the weather's thunder. CNBC will do its "MIT" program tonight because fear buys lot of advertising dollars. This move has been brewing for a long time. The US market just caught the world's flu.

A few disillusioned people will forgo the Starbucks tomorrow and begin a new love affair with McDonald's java. And they'll think about calling their broker.

Can't see the mommasitas telling their kids, no school supplies this year, market just blew thru 25,000.

Don't try to out-think a machine. Don't try to make an intelligent move when you don't have all the facts. We're nowhere near the Dec lows. Where's Trump today? Did he say anything?

Gary, your comment has nothing to do with the article and your comment makes no sense anyway - take your political opinion to Twitter where it belongs.

I don't agree. If anything we should turn up our sensitivity gauges now and see if this runaway train can be stopped. I doubt it will but it's better than lying down and letting it run us over. And it isn't data overload. It's one man, the President who has inextricably tied himself to the stock market via his war with the fed and the dollar. That's pretty unprecedented. He's the most vocal and dangerous president to the markets we've ever had.
