Futures Lethargic With Overnight Ramp As Half The World Takes Day Off

It is May Day, which means half the world - the half where welfare contributions to one's standard of living are off the charts - celebrate labor, or rather the lack thereof, by taking a day off. Which means virtually all of Europe is closed, as are Eurex and Euronext futures, and most European markets expect the UK. In light of the non-existent volume, futures are relatively unchanged despite the latest Chinese Mfg PMI disappointment (50.4, below the 50.5, expected but just above the prior print of 50.3), and of course yesterday's US GDP debacle which helped push the DJIA to a record high. The good news is that with volume even more miserable than usual, the few momentum ignition algos that are operating will have a field day with the now standard low-volume levitation that happens like clockwork if the news is bad, and also happens just in case if the news is bad.

Another Day, Another Senior FX Trader "Resigns"

The plague of resigning senior FX traders from bulge bracket banks continues. The oddly coincidental timing of these mass resignations - along with total radio silence over any reasons from the banks in question - and the spreading FX market 'rigging' probe is, we are sure, just conspiracy theorists run wild. As Bloomberg reports, Lloyds Banking Group’s global head of spot foreign exchange, Darren Coote, has resigned, according to three people with knowledge of the move.
