Apple Ramp "At All Costs" Results In Another Complete Correlation Failure Day
Today's attempt to ramp Apple into the green no matter what (and with 20% of the NASDAQ, and thousands of ETFs creating a massive feedback loop, bidding up Apple generates the biggest bang for the buck), which, if unsuccessful, will see dozens if not more funds scream at EOD once the margin calls start rolling in (yes, many are "all in"), has resulted in yet another complete collapse in all correlations. Note the simply ridiculous divergence between the AUDJPY and the ES. This is all on account of the glaring ramp undertaken by virtually everyone whose livelihood depends on the aforementioned AAPL green close. We would argue that a long AUDJPY, short ES trade makes sense, but with the market as broken as it is, only idiots would hope for anything to make sense any more.
