This has been worrying us for a while...

 

Stocks cratered to catch down to credit's reality once again... for the 3rd time in 10 days...

 

But stocks have a long way to go to reality...

 

Treasury yields collapsed with 10Y pushing back towards a 1 handle...10Y 2.07% lows, 30Y 2.74%

 

This leaves the entire Treasury complex lower in yield on the year (but but but all those clever economists said rates would rise?)

 

Swiss Franc contonues tobe well bid, as is the EUR, as Yellen popped the dollar bid bubble (albeit maybe briefly) yesterday with her confusion... This is the biggest 2day drop in USD Index in 3 months and closes at its lowest in 6 weeks...

 

 

Commodities all gained on the day (as the USD dumped) but crude was technically driven by the expiration...

 

While the carnage in stocks grabbed the headlines, the last 2 days have seen the biggest surge in gold prices sicne 2014...breaking back above its 50-day moving average...

 

And finally this trend is not your friend...

 

Bonds are now the best performer of 2015 (up very modestly) with gold and silver ahead of stocks...
