That’s the best way I can think to describe these markets lately.
We’re between Greece, Germany and the Eurozone as “the news”. Or, maybe “the news” are these exhausted rallies in equities we keep seeing with a simultaneous diminishing VIX. But wait … “the news” is supposed to be Crude Oil at $51 during an extremely supressed rally. No no, that’s not it. It’s the insanely low yields on almost any bond curve you look at. That is “the news”.
I have this really strange Facebook (FB) quasi-long on at the moment, that I’m trying to find an exit for. It’s a weird trade. Profitable. But I started off with a bearish bent, and somehow found myself up on the trade and long. But that just sort of fits the markets over-all at the moment. A rambling pile of noise.
Except of course for Gold.
You can always count on Gold and Silver for a great short
