    This is what debt overhang produces. Nothing is more deflationary than a commodities stockpile. Let’s hope it’s a hiccup and not something worse.

    Answer: less and less.

    well i guess this is just more fallout of wage stall. since it stalled a few decades ago, but for a short time that was made up with easy credit. well easy credit died in 2008, so the end consumer buys less and less

    The markets are not rational – I think psychology of the psychology. After a while of markets not going up, the fear that they may go down gains momentum. Now any little bump on the road feed into confirmation bias and becomes a trigger/excuse.

    Never mind the U.S. indices. What’s worrisome is Germany’s DAX, now in a bear market with a 22.7% decline from its April 2015 high.

    And that’s with the ECB still providing a QE crutch. What does it mean for us, here in QT (Quantitative Tightening) land? A test of the August lows, I reckon.

    Heads down, incoming fire!
