E Market Briefing For Monday, Nov. 19
Anxious efforts to ignite rallies go well beyond seasonality; or the Fed chatter (actually secondary; because this is about debt and credit markets in a macro way; less so related to Fed-Fund rate hikes).

E Markets: Jive Turkeys
As the US winds down into the holiday season, there are pressing questions about correlations and causality across markets.  Most would argue that the present price action in risk assets looks ugly, with confidence failing across key sectors.

Frightful Possibilities
