Notably, Morgan Stanley points out that over the last two weeks investors have bought the 2nd largest amount of S&P 500 futures (as measured by MS Trade Pressure) since at least 2010, while at the same time net holdings of S&P 500 calls are the highest and the net holdings of S&P 500 puts are the lowest since at least 2010.

Probably nothing.

Tactics shift to threats and hostages to obtain rogue_ops.

SILENCE [187] - no risk [no capture - dead on arrival].

SILENCE [LV]?

SILENCE WILL NOT LAST FOREVER.

TRUST.

It's just machines playing pattie cake with each other with free FED fiat. It's also Corporations using their tax cuts to buy back stock instead of trickle it down as it was sold to the mudane plebs.

The higher it goes the harder it falls, it's a ticking time bomb . Something to remember now that the markets have been goosed to the moon.. 

Now it takes a 250 point rise to gain 1% 
We are soon approaching peak euphoria .

Lazy FED workers aren't back at their desks after honoring MLK. Being government workers, they have to demonstrate extra PC-ness by having a post MLK day celebration, where they eat cake and discuss how great US americans are because US americans love black folk.

 

FED workers will be back at their desks shortly and VIX will drop as scheduled.
