Stocks Ramp As Shorts "Squeezed" Most In A Month

Tyler Durden's picture

Thanks to the capable carry-induced ramp in AUDJPY (and a helpful OPEX pile-on for VIX), US equity markets are surging this morning (Russell 2000 above yesterday's highs?!) on the heels of the biggest short squeeze in over a month... SSDD...

 

 

We do note that the big tumble in shorts yesterday has now been fully retraced..

but AUDJPY seems unstoppable...

It's the loathsome "at least we are not dead" rally.

Man alive.  Hard to see stocks continuing to rise this PM into a geopolitial nightmare of a weekend.  So........they probably will.

Buy the international blame-a-thon for Malaysian Airlines disaster.  Putin's turn next.   Bullish ... somehow.

  I bought aud/usd at the bottom last night. I don't see bond yields rising anytime soon. Unlike the fucking village idiots that run the algos, I just covered my trades like any sane trader would do on a Friday.

  I like aud/usd more than aud/jpy. The usdx is very overbought on the 5 hour chart.

I tried to tell you yesterday to BTFD, you had your chance.  Now you are back to buying the all time highs.   Oh well, its fine; as long as you don't sell them here you'll do ok on the next leg higher.

 

Seriously, we have had 4 FOUR downticks all. day. long.   ticks have been pegged around +600 to +1000.  

 

We are going sharply higher, there is loads of cash on the sidelines chasing this thing and of course there are probably some idiots out there short this market to get BTFO on this next leg past 2000.

Stocks have the full power of an unregulated, reserve currency endowed gang of cut throats behind them, truth number 1.

Suppression of gold and silver is a government policy, again backed by an un-regulated printing press running WFO by the same band of fellow travelers and their central bank. Truth number 2.

The dip yesterday became a whipsaw op, more muppets sheared, more profit for the bad guys.

All of this continues til they blow this fucker sky high. I hope it is this weekend.  Why Putin doesn't grenade the silver market is a mystery to me. He is apparently co-opted (at least) in this regard.  A few billion rubles, strategically utilized would cause some gastric ulcers downtown.

It's coming, but the waiting is a bitch.
