Economists keep claiming economic recovery fulfilled, and yet it is found nowhere other than the BLS... and it is certainly not the view of funding and credit markets.

The Volatility Regime Has Flipped

If one had simply held a 50/50 portfolio of VXX/XIV (without rebalancing) for the several years shown -that is prior to the August crash- then their returns would have been >150%.  And instead if one were long VXX and short XIV in just the past six months (mostly due to the August tumult but even including the subsequent temporary rally as well), their returns would be >450%.

But that’s pretty much irrelevant, unless you were trying to get rich off of the downfall of your own world. Always a noble goal. There’s one reason for the delay only: central bank hubris. And now the entire shebang is falling to bits. That this would proceed in chaotic ways was always a given. People don’t know where to look first or last, neither central bankers nor investors nor anyone else.
