All those charts tell me is that it's time for a couple of pints of Pliney the Elder and some chicken wings?
Buy Silver and Gold, they're on sale now!!!
what exactly is "CONTEXT"???
I've looked for the actual components (to no avail), but in general it's a proprietary index of risk assets ex-ES (I assume it's predominately credit products (specifically high yield corporates and sovereigns)).

Time for some WAR to begin...
Very good analysis. Credit will come under pressure end yr, so our Santa rally just happened. The NFP comes in strong or weak, markets will sell on the fact. Volumes fall away rallies will start to roll over on the upper ranges. But bets on NFP is going to be disappointing.
