A Flock Of Black Swans

Major depressions do not occur overnight. They go in downward waves, interrupted at intervals by false recovery waves.  But the collapse will continue, unstoppably. Like any house of cards, once it begins to actually fall, no further Band-Aids will stop the inevitable. So, what might that trigger be?

China Fixes Yuan Stronger After Premier Li Says "No QE" Amid Record High, Surging Pork Prices

Despite the biggest intervention surge in offshore Yuan on record ("predatoring" any excess speculative fervor on PBOC actions in the spot market), a 'PBOC Advisor' noted that "long-term FX intervention was not their target." The Hong Kong Dollar is pressuring the strong-end of its range against the USD, trapped between the USD peg and weak economy (like so many others). Chinese stocks continue to tread water as China's Premier Li rules out QE (perhaps because pork prices are already at record high prices and are rising at a record pace), exclaiming that there "well be no hard landing," but BofAML expected 50-100bps more RRR cuts this year. PBOC strengthened the Yuan Fix tonight (just modestly).

Futures Surge Overnight As Deteriorating Economic Data Unleashes Blur Of Central Bank Interventions And QE Rumors

It has become virtually impossible to differentiate between actual central bank intervention, hopes of central bank intervention, and how the two interplay on what was once the "market" but is now merely the place where money printers duke it out every day in some pretense of price discovery set by those who literally print money.

For "Fearful, Erratic Markets", China's Reserves Are The New Risk-On/Off Trigger: Goldman

"Following the RMB devaluation some weeks ago, markets have been erratic, fearful that the initial move was the beginning of a larger devaluation cycle that could disrupt global markets. Given how worried markets have been about China, a better-than-expected reserves number holds the potential for risk assets to rally as devaluation fears abate."

Futures Slide More Than 1%, At Day Lows Ahead Of "Rate Hike Make Or Break" Payrolls

Moments ago, US equity futures tumbled to their lowest level in the overnight session, down 22 points or 1.1% to 1924, following both Europe (Eurostoxx 600 -1.8%, giving up more than half of yesterday's gains, led by the banking sector) and Japan (Nikkei -2.2%), and pretty much across the board as DM bonds are bid, EM assets are all weaker, oil and commodities are lower in what is shaping up to be another EM driven "risk off" day. Only this time one can't blame the usual scapegoat China whose market is shut for the long weekend.
