06.24 US MARKET DEATHBURGER: Black Friday Brexit Burgers Now Being Served

by John Galt June 24, 2016 02:00 ET I have never been so happy to be so wrong in all my life. I honest to God did not think my limey crazy assed brethren had the jewels to vote for Brexit, but they did. If TPTB do not stop them through a technicality or loophole in the Parliament, then this move is nothing more than a vindication of the insanity we are witnessing in American politics where an unconvicted felon is allowed to run against a reality TV show millionaire/billionaire. Thus…


04.18 0500 Market Update: Cue the Pump Monkeys, OPEC panic Fading

by John Galt April 18, 2016 05:00 ET Last night’s Asian session was interesting as the Japanese earthquakes and OPEC disaster in Doha provided the deflationary double whammy which scared investors out of Tokyo and Shanghai with sizable drops in those markets(charts via YahooFinance): With a 3.4% drop that was pretty nasty. Shanghai was down 1.44%: Meanwhile, US equity futures have recovered substantially since last night’s initial fall as the central bankers began intervening when Europe opened:   With Europe beginning to recover and crude oil prices pausing in their declines…


03.08 Warm up the Grill: Deathburger Markets have Returned as Asia Craters

by John Galt March 7, 2016 21:30 ET Never let Janet Yellen light your grill for a Deathburger. So Japanese GDP was worse (not a shock),  China is a clusterTrump (not a shock), and the Asian economy is incinerating investors like there is no tomorrow because there is no tomorrow. How is this suddenly playing out tonight? Japan as of this posting is down about 311 or 1.84% (via YahooFinance):   OUCH. China is not doing much better, now down around 2.8%: US Futures on the S&P 500 e-Minis have turned…


02.11 JAPANESE YEN Deathburger Mega-Alert: 300 pt Move to 112 in USD/JPY!

by John Galt February 10, 2016 20:20 ET Holy Flirkingshmidt! UPDATE 21:00 ET: And whatever it is that has gone kaboom in the night is reverberating into Hong Kong trading as the Hang Seng opened down over 700 points (4%+) and is still trading close to the lows in the first 1/2 hour of trading(chart via YahooFinance): The opening 1 minute of trading appeared to be the most harrowing! NetDania has some graphic charts (as in Holy TRUMPword) which shows the mind-boggling rise of the Japanese Yen versus the US Dollar…


02.10 While Trumpzilla Rampages through NH, Godzilla Bear Destroying Nikkei 225 and Asian Markets

by John Galt February 9, 2016 21:35 ET As The Donald rampages through the snow covered hills of New Hampshire winning a whopping almost 35% of the vote, apparently he is not so popular on the Nikkei 225 in Japan as they have decided to show their Trumpertantrum by selling off stocks by over 2.4% so far tonight: Meanwhile in Australia, the situation is not much better with an almost 2.5% drop also: US Dow e-Mini futures are only down 63 points at the moment, however the night is young and…

01.11 Oh No Not Again Market DEATBURGER Watch: Paging Janet Yellen, Economy Crapping out on Line 3

by John Galt January 10, 2016 18:50 ET So it’s Sunday night once again. My DFS teams all went to hell in a hand basket yesterday because players with concussions, blown up knees and ankles, and torn groin muscles could not gut it out. I mean seriously J.J. Watt, couldn’t you tough it out, you won’t need your nuts until your career is over anyways. But I digress. The U.S. Futures had a warning sign before they opened at 18:00 ET and that was simple, to to point and a stark,…


01.08 WONTONDEATHBURGER Marketwatch: Will They or WON’t they? 20% decline or 20% Rally? Run Kitty Run…

01.06.15 N. Korean Nuclear Deathburger Marketwatch: Nork Test Causes Almost 200 Point US Futures Plunge!

by John Galt January 5, 2016, 2015 22:25 ET   Yeah, so much for a quiet day in trading today on low volume and a mixed close. North Korea apparently has put an end to that with their reported nuclear test this evening. Guess what time the test occurred on this chart (via Investing.com): Yup, first the China news posted here earlier then right after 9 p.m. ET real panic set in as the realization that the short little twerp is up to no good again; except this time he has…


01.05.16 World Stock Market 1/2 Eaten Deathburger Watch: Burp! Shanghai Burgers are Getting Old

by John Galt January 4, 2016 20:50 ET Ugh. No sleep again and here we go again. With US futures gaining no traction after the market close as demonstrated below (chart updates automatically courtesy of FINVIZ): Up only around 3 points now means that down is now the new up and bearish means we’ll rally back to the bottom part of the trading range and everything will be okie dokey. Or not. Meanwhile these Tweets from Bloomberg’s David Ingles indicates all may not be well in the land of the Communist…


01.04.2016 Won Ton Deathburger Alert: Shanghai SSE Plummets 4% in Minutes – Drags US Futures Down

by John Galt January 3, 2016 21:40 ET Here it is an innocent first night in 2016 trading with Iran and Saudi Arabia fighting over the same camel (it’s sexual this time) and of course US equity index futures originally opening higher this evening. Then Asia opened. Then oops. The Shanghai-SSE opened down then in a matter of less than 4 minutes plummeted down 4% on pretty heavy volume and now has recovered as of this posting to around -3.30%. That of course took an already fragile Japanese market down further…


09.10 DEATHBURGER MARKET WATCH: After an Ugly US Close, Asia Tries to Out-Ugly American Markets

by John Galt September 9, 2015 20:30 ET Here we go again. The US markets had what can only be called a key reversal day as the rally was about 200 points to the upside on the DJIA and suddenly Apple (AAPL) had their conference on their new products and iPooped on investors worldwide. After the conference began, markets sold off but in the last hour, they cratered to close 236 points lower. Just after 5:30 p.m. ET  the Reserve Bank of New Zealand cut their Official Cash Rate from 3.0%…


08.26 Asia and U.S. Deathburger Marketwatch: Will the Carnage Continue?

by John Galt August 25, 2015 17:25 ET UPDATED 21:10 ET: And just as I praised the Kiwis, the NZ-50 goes negative. Who do they think they are? The Dow? Meanwhile in Australia, Japan, and South Korea things are starting to look as confused as US markets: Australia S&P/ASX 200: Japan’s Nikkei 225: South Korea KOSPI: UPDATED 18:30 ET: And for some strange reason, the Kiwis are drinking the Kool-Aid as the New Zealand NZ-50 is up on the open! They must be smoking all that wool, no other explanation. ——————————————————————-…


08.24 Asian, Europe, US Deathburger Marketwatch: MOAD or a Grilled Cheese Sandwich?

07.27-07.28 Asian Deathburger: Chinese Stock Market Opens DOWN 4% No Sweet, Just Sour

by John Galt July 27, 2015 22:15 ET This screenshot from Bloomberg TV-Asia says it all: The reason for all the red on the screen? Shanghai strikes again, opening down as far as 4.51% but recovering slightly at the top of the hour: The 15 minute delayed chart from YahooFinance is ugly as are all Asian-Pacific markets this morning: The Hang Seng in Hong Kong is slightly better but then again they like to sell hard in the afternoon session: Australia and South Korea are not doing so well either: Last…


03.04 Overnight Thread for Asian Stock Markets: Urkainidoom or Dead Putin Bounce?

  by John Galt March 3, 2014 22:45 ET I’ll keep it simple tonight. The charts below reflect the insanity of bankster manipulated markets looking for a parking place for their fiat bullcrap currencies. I can clue you in that Europe and Russia are not their first choices for creating a faux rally. One thing for sure, if people believe Obama and the US politicians on television, well, nothing will happen beyond the emperor using his pen and his phone. The markets will predict the real outcome. First up, Japan’s Nikkei…


Nikkei down 3.83% Yen Strengthening Again below 100

  by John Galt June 5, 2013 05:50 ET   The Japanese Nikkei 225 got whacked again last night with a 3.83% loss or 518 point decline:    (charts from YahooFinance) I haven’t seen panic set in over the last three weeks since Dunkin Donuts closed their capitol building location in New Jersey. The key to today’s action is to watch the Yen which is strengthening once again as our economic situation is starting to display the instability which most Americans feel on a daily basis. Watch this chart because a…


More Bad Sushi Tonight as Godzirra Hits Nikkei 225 for 3% Loss Again

  by John Galt May 29, 2013 20:31 ET   Ruh-Roh!     This is not going to end well.   FWIW, this is what an ongoing bond market crash looks like boys and girls:     Watch the live action as it is down 3% as of 2030 ET and looking probably pretty fugly and possibly heading for another 5%+ drop!   Prices from Yahoo Finance delayed 20 minutes:     The US market dropped a hint today as to what happens when a 2/5/10/30 year bond auction failure would…


Is this the Start of the Summer Stock Swoon?

  by John Galt May 23, 2013 05:00 ET     The cratering of the Japanese stock market last night with a massive 7.32% sell off could be an indication that the Fed’s hint that the era of super easy funny fiat printing may start to ease is over. The hangover might begin as U.S. futures are down triple digits as this is typed but is it the end? If the speculators are any hint, odds are this could be a short sharp correction heading into the Memorial Day weekend holiday…
