Republicans To Investigate NASA Over Climate Data Tampering





With record heat (and drought) in the west and record cold (wet and snow) in the east, the global warming game-playing continues every day but the climate-gate rhetoric has increased vociferously since we first noted three weeks ago, the data that has been so relied upon to 'prove' global warming's trend was in fact manipulated. What The Telegraph called "the most extraordinary scandal of our times" - that of the "seasonally-adjusted" seasonal raw global temperature data - is about to be investigated by Congress. As Daily Caller reports, California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrbacher exclaimed "expect there to be congressional hearings into NASA altering weather station data to falsely indicate warming & sea rise."

Stocks Coiled To Soar On Any Positive Greek News





With the new and revised (until it is re-revised again to some future date), Greek D-Day set for today's third in the past 2 weeks Eurogroup meeting, every favorable headline serves as a springboard for ES-buying algos, while every negative headline is promptly ignored. And since this is Europe's style trial ballooning, there have been many of both with just these two hitting in the last hour:

  • GREECE, EURO ZONE NEAR DEAL ON PACKAGE, REUTERS CITES UNIDENTIFIED GREEK OFFICIAL
  • GREECE DID NOT GO FAR ENOUGH IN THEIR LATEST PROPOSAL: GREEK GVOERNMENT SPOKESMAN

Guess which one pushed ES into the green?

Peak "Grexit"?





Goldman recently warned that they are "more worried than we have been since the start of the Euro area crisis," and judging by the extraordinary surge in "Grexit" headlines, it appears this time is different from 2012...

Goldman's Best Single Idea For Hedging "Grexit" Risk





With reports of near mutiny in Syriza's ranks amid the back-bending they have done to try to meet Germany's demands - only to be abjectly denied by a non-ultimatum-setting Schaeuble - it is perhaps time to prepare (ahead of tomorrow's apparent "G" day) for the possibility that Greece creates a systemic event. As Goldman recently warned, there are aspects that leave us more worried than we have been since the start of the Euro area crisis with a tight schedule to avert a disorderly outcome. Risk markets so far have traded in a resilient (well managed) manner but risks of an accident remain and here is how Goldman suggests you hedge that exposure.

FOMC Minutes Show Patient-er-For-Longer, "Foreign Risks"-Fearful Fed





The January statement had only modest changes so reading the tealeaves of the FOMC Minutes 'should' provide little additional color with the main focus on the meaning of 'patient', fears over 'international developments', the 'right' gauge of inflation, and pace of rate lift-off...

  • *MANY FED OFFICIALS INCLINED TO STAY AT ZERO LONGER: MINUTES
  • *MANY OFFICIALS FELT DROPPING `PATIENT' MAY LEAD TO DATE FOCUS
  • *MANY FED OFFICIALS SAW RISKS IF FOREIGN WEAKNESS WORSENED
  • *FED OFFICIALS AGREED POLICY SHOULD STAY DATA DEPENDENT

It appears The Fed is 'worried' again... lower for longerer. Pre-FOMC Minutes: S&P Futs 2091.25, 10Y 2.122%, Gold $1201.50, WTI $52.05

US Equities Give Up "Greece Is Fine" Gains





Who could have seen that coming... as we explained minutes after the Greek headlines hit yesterday, the Greek 'loan' extension was not news at all... and neither was Schaeuble's response...

Stocks In Holding Pattern With All Eyes On Draghi And Whether ECB Will Pull Greek Liquidity





There was much confusion yesterday when algos went into a buying frenzy on news that Greece would submit a request for a 6 month loan extension, believing this means Greece has caved and will agree to a bailout programme extension as well. Nothing could have been further from the truth as we explained first moments after the headline struck, and also as Reuters validated moments ago when it said that "Greece will submit a request to the euro zone on Wednesday to extend a "loan agreement" for up to six months but EU paymaster Germany says no such deal is on offer and Athens must stick to the terms of its existing international bailout." But since the political nuances of diplomacy are lost on the math Ph.Ds who program the market-moving algos, the S&P did manage to roar above 2100 on what was another headfake and then forgot to sell off on the reality.

Retail Sales & The Market's Looming "Gotcha" Moment





The "conundrum" between lower gasoline prices and retail sales is not really one at all. Furthermore, the real story behind the weakness in retail sales also suggest that something is "amiss" within the broader economic backdrop. When combined with the deterioration in earnings, the risk of a "gotcha" moment in the market has risen markedly.

Moment of Brutal Honesty: Political Commentator Quits Over HSBC Coverage, Accuses Telegraph Of "Fraud On Readers"





What happens when the "impartial and independent" media puts its relationship with advertisers (especially when said advertisers are admitted criminal consortiums among whose chief sources of revenue in recent decades has been facilitating tax evasion and "laundering the world's drug money") above the interests of its readers and the presentation of "imperatial and independent" facts? This: "The coverage of HSBC in Britain's Daily Telegraph is a fraud on its readers. If major newspapers allow corporations to influence their content for fear of losing advertising revenue, democracy itself is in peril."

Stocks Go Green, Euro Spikes On Report Greece To Ask Request Program Extension Tomorrow





Now where have we seen this before? Surprise contradictory headlines that occur shortly after vehement statements by leaders: *GREECE AIMS TO REQUEST LOAN ACCORD EXTENSION TOMORROW: OFFICIAL

This comes after Varoufakis and Tspiras specifically saying that they will not extend the current loan accord: "Salvation will not come by extending the mistake," adding that compromise on the current program "is not an agreement but a surrender that would complete the euthanasia of our country."
