• and yes, we are in a late cycle stage, FED on hold for a reason!!! [and possible just another small wave of prolonging ]
20/n update US YieldCurve vs VIX

• the 2018 rate hikes were well "telegraphed" , hence yield curve flattening and accompanied with elevated and even spiking Stock volatility

• FED blinked, on hold now (possibly all 2019), = calming the market. ...
21/n update FED hike probability 2019

• ZERO chance (as of today) for hike#10 ... hence RiskOn candy
22/n update VIX & distribution

• spot pressured to 13.5

• hence, drifting close to C-range [ C = complacency ]. However, probably a new slightly higher plateau now, single digits after XIV implosion off, and 10-12 range likely too. let's see
23/n update VIX term structure

36/n flash M.PMI 2of2

• with the flash M.PMI data of major global GDP contributing countries/regions, all hell broke loose in CB boards
• Europe, Japan, China, EM is a mess.
• the US, DE, JP drops implies a -0.5 weaker JPM global PMI (33M low).
37/n recap Philly Fed 1of2

• Index fell off the cliff from last 17.0 and expected 14.0 to ... -4.1

• that survey is more volatile and can be erratic, but it would imply a ISM drop to 50 (which I don't expect here).
38/n recap Philly Fed 2of2

• New Orders collapsed from 21.3 to -2.4
• this too can be erratic, and even though this overlay "suggests" a ISM n.o. to 50-51, at this stage I doubt this tbh. However, a drop is a drop is a drop.
39/n but then we have PBoC too

• [ yeah yeah, I know, "coincidence" and show me the correlation "Nicolas Cage movies vs Pool fatal accidents" ]
