  • Bitcoin sharply lower on the day, but well off session lows around $42,500 $BTCUSD #Bitcoin https://t.co/mPiZMs8eYH
  • You know what index didn't suffer an overtly threatening reversal this past session? The Russell 2000. It didn't continue the same steady climb through 2021 that the Dow, SPX and Nasdaq enjoyed; so not as much excess premium https://t.co/ieHojAC7b5
  • USD/JPY extends the rebound from the weekly low (109.11) as the stronger-than-expected US Retail Sales report fuels speculation for an imminent shift in monetary policy. Get your $USDJPY market update from @DavidJSong here:https://t.co/Rozq62yAou https://t.co/toaAHiCavK

  • There was some serious BTD action in that final hour of New York trade. With the FOMC on Wednesday, the freeze usually associated with anticipating a big event could help curb a deeper slump. If risk aversion continues despite the attention, it would concern me.
  • The S&P 500 staged a late-day rally, but still closed down by roughly 1.7% $SPX $SPY $ES https://t.co/SjbbOUXtiV

The COT Index is the difference between net speculative positioning and net commercial positioning measured. A blue colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bullish) with speculators selling and commercials buying. A red colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bearish) with speculators buying and commercials selling. Non-commercials tend to be on the wrong side at the turn and commercials the correct side. Use of the index is covered closely in detail in my book.
