Stocks And Bond Yields Are Plunging On Shot-Down Passenger Jet

Tyler Durden's picture

Remember when Ukraine was fixed and you could BTFATH as no geopolitical concerns could ever harm US equity markets... well that just changed... News that a Malaysian Airlines passeneger jet carrying 280 passengers was shot down in Ukraine has sparked major derisking across stocks and slammed bonds to the low yields of the day. Gold and Silver are jumping and the USD is fading.


Gold surge as stocks, JPY, and bond yuields tumble...


Stocks are near post-Yellen lows on this news...

I'm sure we will be told everything is fixed tomorrow, should be good for S&P 2000 going into the weekend.

After the recent sell off which was quite terrifying in this 'New Normal" world we live in I would say that things can only go up from here.


Because this whole charade will only go down when it is allowed to go down.

12:15 ET coming back up. Dead cat bounce or return to markets flying high on fundamentals?

Obchelli's picture

So Nowedays 50 point drop in DOW qualifies as Plunge? is up over 100 daily just before market only...

Nothing here untill it will start plunging regularly over 300 points to reach it's fair value of 3000

The bankers can't have real competition. If they have a war, they can't possibly lose though, right....

As if the markets give a flying fuck of what is happening outside their sphere.

We can make the image blurry

Or sharpen it to crystal clarity...

OC Sure's picture

Yes, with more to follow as evidenced everyday in the CME's Daily Bulletin section 02a. In this section you will find that during all of the rallys within  the uptrend from the 2013 Christmas Eve stealth short squeeze that open interest is expanding which indicates that the longs are in control regardless of the smokescreen COT report. This expansion of longs is accompanied by extreme pessimism as exhibited by the excessive volume of puts vs calls.

Look for the trend from December to be ending only when there is an extremely high volume day to new trend highs and the open interest declines on that day. The background of this event will likely be accompanied by several weeks of extreme bullishness exhibited by the excessive volume of calls vs puts.

What are the odds?


Seriously what ARE the odds?  Got to be almost impossible via the math alone.

Will this be the pin that pops this boil we call an economy?

RSloane's picture

Oh gosh no. That would require a Malaysia Airlines plane being shotdown over Wyoming by the NSA.

Well, now that I think about it, that scenario might inspire another meteoric rise in stocks.

Markets are so wired to trade purely technically that, while news hitting the text-parsers can speed up moves, I’m not sure this yet rises to the level of completely changing the trajectory today.  For example, the Russell has bounced strongly twice, at the open off of the lower HRLY Keltner, and just a moment ago off of the 200 DMA.  Seasoned Russell traders looking at their charts pre-market, even without this news, would likely have put this as a likely scenario, but perhaps it’s completion pre-noon was due to the news “speed-up”.  I guess I’m saying that, to really judge this news “market-moving”, we’ll need to see a decisive technical breach below the 11:30 lows.  (The retracement has been fierce, closed my short just in time at 11:15)

Lewshine's picture

C'mon!! No one here actually believes the US indexes would drop even a 1/2 a percent, based on a commercial jet being shot down??

You must be kidding!! We've seen indexes rally on the New Jersey coastline being washed away, with billions in property losses.

Just watch the Fed algos fix this BS!!

remember that well, then Obozo got re-elected and we were off to the races!

It's beyond my paygrade to know if it's true our not, but I remember reading about some odd trading activity before 9/11. Wonder if we'd find any today that would relate specifically to this. Tyler, what's your take on both? Just curious if all that chatter had merit in your estimation.

They should be able to find the black boxes and will be able to tell if it was an explosion or a malfunction....or maybe they will not tell....they should have been at crusing altitude of 35,000 feet....that is pretty high for a would have to be a big one..which would have showed up on our spy satellites.....but will we much intrigue....

Rootin' for Putin's picture

except the black boxes will go back to Boeing and the ntsb. heres hoping for the actual data not the 'we need it to say this' data

I have a theory that Malaysia Airlines are actually used to smuggle gold bullion around the world. First the one that disappeared and now this one shot down. There is some shit going on here with Au delieveries.

daveO's picture

Two dead former SEALS(or Spec. Ops) were connected to the other plane. They had loaded something on it shortly before dying of reported drug overdoses. My guess, it's part of the ongoing drug wars between the US and Russia. Malaysia Air would be a perfect airline for shipping narcotics.

More fake moves in the market - wow, this never gets old!

Keltner Channel Surf's picture

It seems the next few hours will tell the tale:  is this an algo dip-buying Portugal moment, like a few days ago, OR the proverbial "exogenous" straw that sends the Camel to the chiropractor?  Emotional sellng begets opportunity ... unless the emotion is warranted.

Al Huxley's picture

It seems pretty clear that this is yet another time to BTFD.  If and when the selling really gets going there won't be time to have a conversation about it.

Keltner Channel Surf's picture

They just tagged VWAP, let's see if they next target unch, or drift for awhile back toward the lows ...

BobTheSlob's picture

No worries, it will be back below 1300 tomorrow.

This should bring out the conspiracy theorists en masse. Here's what happened:

The US colluded with the Zionist pig Jews to get the Nazis (a.k.a. anyone Putin doesn't like) in Kiev to have the US CIA deliver one of the stolen Libyan manpads so that the Kiev Nazis (worse than Illinois Nazis) could create a false flagg event so we can watch the markets nudge momentarily off of "pegged high".

I hope I saved everyone a lot of time.

Here's another post...please feel free to make this one go negative too.

The ridiculous sensationalism is worthless information, as well as unbecoming. 


Call me when the ES futures "plunges" 40 or 50 points.

Yea exactly, this is a non story....let me know when futures are down even 1%.

I just went short SPY.  This could be it!

Nothing more than collateral damage in a world where the ends justifies the means! Nothing to see here ....move along!

jubber's picture

US futures are indeed already off their lows Dow only down 47 as i type

I'm sure the Fed will promptly fix this so stawks can get back on their normal path to another all time recorder high.
