Bonds & Bullion Battered As Big-Tech Takes Off To Start The New Year

Bonds & Bullion Battered As Big-Tech Takes Off To Start The New Year

While Apple’s $3 trillion market cap made the big headlines, it was bonds that really should have even as US Manufacturing survey slipped to 12-month lows as COVID cases are exploding at record pace…

AAPL now bigger than UK’s GDP…

TSLA was just silly too (adding almost 3 TWTRs today)…

This all led Nasdaq to outperform along with Small Caps (notably everything just drifted higher after Europe closed)…

Interestingly, ‘recovery’ stocks started the day as the big winners but by the close it was ‘stay at home’ stocks that outperformed…

Gold was blasted back below $1800 briefly before bouncing back…

Oil managed gains on the day after diving below $75 briefly…

Finally, it appears there are still some shorts left to bury…

And squeezed they were today…

But when will the squeezers run out of ammo?

Oh, and ignore this…

We did it Joe! We shut down the virus! https://t.co/WS9HB3cPQQ
