“None Of The Problems Are Solved” Despite Global ‘Plunge Protection’ Overnight

When many American traders went to bed last night, China was tumbling, the euro was in trouble, and US equity futures were notching lower. Then, as former fund manager Richard Breslow scoffs, it appears the world “reconsidered” and everything rallied to erase any sign of discontent or uncertainty by the time everyone woke up…

Via Bloomberg,

Apparently, the word of the day is “reconsider.”

Across a whole host of assets, we got somewhat violent moves early in the 24-hour trading cycle that managed to unwind themselves over the course of the day.

I kept being told that the euro, Chinese equities, U.S. equity futures, gold, bond yields, Eurostoxx 50, and so on, all reversed their opening, sometimes gap, moves after the market reconsidered what it all meant.

Of course, that’s being a bit too kind. It would be more accurate to say things turned around when traders actually considered things for the first time. But this all matters more than just a collection of knee-jerk reactions that have come to naught as another trading region came in.

North America isn’t being asked to break the tie and decide who was right. They are being told that they can afford to ignore the news that propelled things in the first place. After all, we’re right back where we started. No harm, no foul. That would be a mistake, as once again we keep muddling-up short-term and long-term information as if they should be discounted by the same rate and assuming we should trade without benefit of context.
