Nasdaq, Bitcoin Surge To Record Highs As China Saves The World

IP surges (thanks to hurricanes), Congress passes a tax bill that has no hope of passing the senate, but a huge Chinese liquidity injection sends stocks soaring and proves...

 

Seemingly thanks to a Risk Parity rebound...

And a huge China liquidity injection...

“The increase in cash additions will help soothe market sentiment,” said Qin Han, chief fixed-income analyst at Guotai Junan Securities Co.

And indeed it did: US equity markets soared today... (Small Caps and Trannies best, Dow and S&P lagged but up big)

 

Which sent Nasdaq back to record highs..

 

VIX was pushed back under 12 but that is well above the 10 handle when stocks last hit these highs... NOTE the weak close in S&P futs (after running stops)...

 

Stocks decoupled from bonds...

 

And Stocks decoupled from FX...

 

And Stocks even decoupled from VIX...

 

HYG (High yield bond ETF) also surged most in 8 months... NOTE it filled the last two days gaps lower...

 

Having ripped off its most oversold since March (note the perfect cymmetry with today's move.. and what happens next)

 

Treasury yields were higher on the day... (with a notable selkloff late in the day)

 

But until the last 30 mins, the curve had drifted very modestly lower...

 

The Dollar Index drifted lower on the day - despite the yield, stock gains...

 

Gold managed very small gains on the day but WTI Crude fell lower (testing $54 handle twice)

NOTE - WTI futs are rolling to Jan 18.

 

Gold remains the best performer since Saudi unleahsed its chaos...

 

Finally, we noted that Bitcoin has ripped over 40% higher off the weekend's lows - back to previous record highs...
