So tonight begins, the first episode ever, of the Chinese Stock Markets without their safety vest and life boat, allegedly.
UPDATE 20:33 ET: ALL IS WELL, IT’S NOT CAT, EAT ALL YOU WANT, IT’S A BUFFET!
UPDATE 20:05 ET..RUH-ROH:
Of course stale leftover stocks could really, really suck.
Heading into the Asian markets tonight, here is where we are at:
Japan’s Nikkei 225 is a wrong, wrong way away from 20, 000:
However it is only down 1.08% as of this posting so don’t worry, be hapry.
Australia doesn’t seem to be hopping into bullishness either:
The good news is the Roos have it down to only a -0.43% level and it means they can hop into positive territory when ordered by TPTB.
In New Zealand, the NZ50 is not as pretty with an almost 1.5% drop:
The good news is U.S. futures are up because they are under orders to be so:
That is all for now until China opens, then the fun, scotch, whiskey, and something bizarre begins…
Of course in the end, all you muppets must die. That’s how the natural order works after all.
