Tyler Durden's picture

Since Friday's holiday-shortened session, US equities have tried and failed to sustain the exuberance of the month, quarter, year. Volume is heavy but postive breadth is becoming narrower with fewer and fewer names leading the rise and the break in EURJPY is weighing heavily on the overall markets as stocks catch down to recent indications from bonds, the USD, precious metals, VIX, and credit that the Fed taper may be coming sooner than many hoped. And it's a double-POMO Day... get to work Mr. Henry.
