Bonds, Dow, & Dollar Rise As Peso & VIX Protection Pounded

Anyone else get this feeling today…

 

S&P 2,300; Dow 20,100 early on but couldn't extend gains…

 

NOTE Dow was closed right at 20100…

 

Despite the best efforts to crush VIX once again, the S&P could not hold on to gains… (NOTE that VIX was extremely wild around the 10.8 area where it died yesterday as Dow 20k hit)

 

VIX dropped intraday to its 2nd lowest level in 10 years…

 

It looks like the Short-squeeze ammo just ran out…

 

What happens next?

 

The Peso was pounded all day…

 

And the Dollar rebounded modestly… (pushing the Dollar Index back above 100)

 

Yen was the biggest loser today but all the majors lost ground as the greenback strengthened (though remains down on the week)

 

Remember, tonight is the last trading day for China before they go away for Golden Week (which has historically meant a weaker dollar and stronger gold)…

 

Despite stock gains and VIX decline, bonds were bid today (accelerating after a solid 7Y auction)

 

Gold and Silver are now lower on the week as copper and crude catch the reflation bug…

 

Gold and silver both broke below key levels ($1200 and $17)…

 

Bonus Chart: S&P hit 2,300 Record Highs today… and the gap between hope and reality yawns ever wider…

 

Bonus Bonus Chart: Today was the worst day for US Macro data since August…
