XLY:XLP (short-term) is approaching last Wed's high. (A rough measure of "risk on").

Yes. QQQ filled the overnight gap. As did the associated future, NQ. YM and ES following along. ES not there, as of yet. If one fills, there is no guarantee another will fill.

RVX has been quietly surging since an opening dip, now back near the HOD...

Update: TLT selling off a bit here, dropping from near hod... this perhaps is why XLF and KRE just hit their HOD.

$3billion market on close for sale. That's a big MOC-to-sell. Just routine selling, right? It feels like they are still screwing around with the volatility trades.

To put last week's non-recession (allegedly) correction in perspective, Deutsche notes that (1) 3-5% selloffs as normal, occurring on average every 2-3 months. Given the emphasis in the market narrative on rates in driving the equity selloff, the taper tantrum saw only a modestly bigger than normal 6% very short-lived sell off; however (2) "10% corrections are rare."

Outside of recessions, when the unemployment rate is falling, there have only been 15 such selloffs since 1950, i.e., in the last 67 years, or 1 every 4.5 years on average.

Update: Still true. Steady upward creep continues--and now VXN is coming up off the lows.

This market is locked down tight. Can't believe the GAP is still open.

Must say with all the hype CPI is getting as much attention as payrolls, I suppose because it is a window into the Feds thinking.
