Notes From Underground: Is This the Market Genuflecting To the Presumed Power Of the G-7?

May 24, 2016

Confusion rained/reigned today as all the main global equity markets rallied as if spooked by some possible sea-change in policy. While some analysts attributed the strong rally a low volume short covering rush to the exits, I BELIEVE IT IS THE RESPONSE TO THE LARRY SUMMERS’S PUSH FOR A MASSIVE GLOBAL BASED FISCAL STIMULUS PACKAGE.

It is so vacuous that mere words cannot measure the low esteem in which I hold the reigning British leader.What next? Selfies with tears pouring down his cheeks in order to show the French people how truly saddened are the Brits and how those across the channel feel the pain caused by the millenarian nihilists.
