Risk Spread Compression Time As Stock Sell Off Intensifies

Tyler Durden's picture

That yesterday's entire move on the idiotic ramp into the close is now unwound is not at all surprising. We predicted this is what happens when you have busted vacuum tubes lifting every offer in a market that has 3 lots in Level 2. What is surprising is that even as the ES has plunged, the RISK basket has tumbled far faster. As usual, at times of great arbitrage, we point out the glaringly obvious, which at this point is to compress the ES-RISK trade for a 14 ES point equivalent compression.
