Furious "Plunge Protection" In Final Minutes Fails To Push Stocks Green For 2015

The worst 2-week run of the year for stocks leave Dow, S&P, and Trannies red for 2015...

 

Yesterday's dead-cat-bounce died... and then the fucking algos went berserk and ramped us above VWAP into the close... what a total joke.

 

But in the day, small caps outperformed - what a joke!!!!! look at it

 

On the week,Trannies tested red but bounced, Nasdaq underperformed...

 

Leaving The Dow, S&P, and Trannies red year-to-date... the panic-buying idiocy into the close was all the machines trying to get S&P green YTD

 

This was the worst 2-week run for The Dow and S&P since early December... but Small Caps are green for March...

 

So let's take a look at the turmoil...

Crude was Carnage'd under $45...

 

The Euro Baumgartner'd below the crucial 1.05 and could not get back up...

 

Yields on the week dropped 11-14bps with the long-end erasing all the Jobs-data losses...

 

The US Dollar saw its biggest week since September 2011...

 

And biggest 2-weeks since lehman!!

 

Commodities performed relatively well in the face of the USD explosion... all apart from Crude...

 

 

And finally... because it's all about fundamentals
