Markets In Turmoil – Stocks Sliding As Bitcoin Tops $400

With a shiny red ballon dog selling for $58 million, perhaps it was time to take a little profit in the equity exuberance. S&P futures are down 9 points from last night’s close – which in the new normal is considerable (sadly) – with no macro data headlines this morning to spark a move, we will be watching JPY (which for now is rallying awkwardly) for signs of ignition. Meanwhile, as the USD flatlines (despite dispersion in FX), Bitcoin just toppped $400 for the first time ever – doubling in the last two weeks. Precious metals are up modestly; treasury yields are limping lower; and European equities (and sovereign bonds) are having another tough day.


S&P Futures an odd shade of green (called red we hear) this morning…



Bitcoin tops $400…
