S&P Plunges To Critical Technical Level, Bond Yields Hit One-Month Lows

It's been quite a morning for bad news and its hitting markets:

  • 1000ET *TEXAS GOVERNOR ORDERS TAVERNS TO CLOSE IN RESPONSE TO VIRUS

  • 1050ET *CHINA MESSAGES THAT U.S. PRESSURE COULD JEOPARDIZE PURCHASES OF U.S. EXPORTS

  • 1100ET *HARRIS COUNTY, TX, TO DECLARE TOP-LEVEL EMERGENCY ON COVID-19

The volatility in markets is allowed to leak out as The Fed balance sheet shrinks for the second week in a row...

Maybe Powell will need to start printing again?

The S&P 500 just broke down and bounced at its 200-day moving-average...

Dow futures have tumbled nearly 600 points to 25k with small caps leading the collapse (down 2.5% on the day)...

Pushing The Dow back to two-week lows...

And bond yields are plunging, with 30Y back to one-month lows...

But stocks have a long way to fall to catch down to reality...

The Dollar has broken out to its strongest since May...

Mnuchin, get someone on the phone!
