A quick note as I settle back into my routine after being on the road a few days (sorry bout all that volatility while I was traveling).
Getting out of NYC and watching market from afar (and in a different time zone), a few things that were noteworthy:
-US markets closed better than they opened;
-Euro turmoil is definitely impacting trading;
-The slow grind making up the day saw better final prices than futures would imply.
-Trading was much weaker when European bourses were open;
-There remains an underlying liquidity bid containing the downside so far.
Note that this is not the wishful thinking of a permabull, as we are now down to 40-50% equity exposure. As noted, I’d like to see lower prices to put some equity exposure back on.
Be back soon . . .
