The way these things work follows a strict script.
Stage 1: rumor mill it. Only a few pay attention and cry Chicken Little
Stage 2: It’s happening. Main stream news discusses it incessantly, increasing discussion amongst conspiracy theorist of chicken vs egg current simulation mode.
Stage 3: RESCUED! But not really. But RESCUED. Market short squeezes higher.
Stage 4: Oh no, it’s not over. Panic doubles.
Stage 5: Crisis.
Stage 6: Bailout.
Stage 7: Lift off, pretend it never happened.
I’d say we’re at stage 3 now. I do not have a timeline on when the Chinese debt bubble will re-emerge, but it’s not over.
That being said, we had a strong oversold bounce and we might gap higher again tomorrow, especially since the last 3-4hours of the day was sideways poorly traded slop. I’d bet many a shorts edge-lorded in hoping for some sort of fuckery tonight. I doubt you’ll get that and I doubt the Chinese are eager to create credit drama.
Ergo, we trade higher in the morning.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
