Tyler Durden's picture

Correlation is not causation; but coincidence means you're on the right path. Looking at the charts of Stocks, Commodities, and Precious Metals, we wonder just what it was that President Obama said at his 11am ET White House meeting last Thursday...

Equity markets soared out of the gate on the 11th. Jobless claims beat expectations handily (shaking off the previous week's concerns) and all was well in the world... until just after 11am ET (when the CEOs of Wall Street's big banks - for no apparent reason - met with President Obama)... and this happened...

 

Gold also peaked at just after 11am ET...

 

as did Crude oil...

 

So what did Obama tell them?
