Euro Plunges With Alarming Speed As Stop Losses Kick In, Below Year Lows
World markets are beating the victory drums that finally the idiots in America have shut down the algos and everyone else can get back to reality. The first effect: after closing north of 1.33, the euro is now in free fall mode, plunging to 1.3216, slicing through every imaginable stop like butter as the world has said "enough" to the bullshit market action out of the US, which, like a petulant child, refuses to acknowledge anything and everything negative. All the stops at 1.3250 just got taken out causing a 50 pip drop in seconds. The next level of stops at 1.315 will likely be tested as Asia opens, but these are weak and any real resistance will be found below 1.31. The all critical Euro-Yen pair is down to 123.6 from 124.4 late on Thursday when the math Ph.D.'s had the market firmly under control. The DXY continues surging. Expect world market weakness overnight, translating into a drop of ES until just before the US market opens and the fume melt up resume again as America is now decoupled from every world market.
