Natixis: “The VIX Spike Corresponds To a 15% Market Crash”

  • Natixis: “The VIX Spike Corresponds To a 15% Market Crash”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Still shocked by the VIX surging over 50? Well, here’s some good news: it could be worse, much worse. In fact, as Natixis’ William Imbrogno calculates this morning, the VIX spike – the largest in history, and still rising – should correspond to a 15% market crash.

    Here is the note from the director of equity derivatives flow at Natixis:

    The VIX spike was the largest in history and should correspond to a 15% market move, the drop of 4% on the SPX should correspond to an increase in the VIX of 5 points.

    Showing the asymmetrical impact of the short squeeze on volatility given the dominance of Algo’s, vol control, CTA’s  and short volatility strategies.

    Perhaps this is a strong case to reduce the reliance on systematic automated strategies in favour of active management?

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

  • For the record, I have not concluded with 100% certainty that Macron is the Man of Sin. I have searched and so far found no evidence that he is Jewish. The Man of Sin is a homosexual as implied in the Bible:

    37 He shall regard neither the God[a] of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.

Lebanon Leaders to Meet as Israel Threatens ‘Stone Age’

  • Lebanon Leaders to Meet as Israel Threatens ‘Stone Age’
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Senior Lebanese leaders will meet later this week to deescalate political tensions and discuss measures to counter Israel’s threats against Lebanon’s offshore oil and gas exploration projects, officials say.

    President Michel Aoun will hold a meeting with Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Saad Hariri before noon Tuesday at the presidential palace of Baabda to boost stability amid rising Israeli threats against the Arab country.

    The meeting comes after tensions flared last week between the Free Patriotic Movement, founded by Aoun, and the Amal Movement, presided by Berri, fueled by a video in which Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, who heads the FPM party, was shown calling Lebanon’s parliament speaker a “thug.” A wave of protests by Berri’s supporters ensued.

    “Hopes are pinned on this [Baabda] meeting to lay the foundation for bolstering stability and opening horizons of further cooperation in the interest of the country and its civil peace,” Berri told visitors at his Ain al-Tineh residence Sunday night.

Russian Banks Ramping Up Gold Purchases at Record Pace

  • Russian Banks Ramping Up Gold Purchases at Record Pace
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The Russian government has purchased two-thirds of all the gold mined in country, buying it from local banks to add to reserves as the Kremlin sees the precious metal as a safe haven at a time of geopolitical turbulence.

    “For banks, this is good business. They credit mining companies, which return the loan with the gold they extracted. Then banks sell it to the Central Bank,”
     according to the Russian Finance Ministry, quoted by Prime news agency.


    Russia is the largest gold buyer in the world, and purchases by Russian banks have increased substantially in recent years. Last year, Russian banks bought 205,155 tons of gold, which is 4.7 percent more than in 2016 (195.89 tons), and approximately 67 percent of all gold produced in Russia. This is also a 13 percent increase compared to 2013.

    The biggest buyers are VTB24, Sberbank and Gazprombank. All three banks have registered at the Shanghai precious metals exchange. In April, VTB announced plans to sell up to 100 tons of gold to China annually.

    According to the World Gold Council, the Russian Central Bank increased gold reserves by 163 tons, to 1,778 tons. Russia has almost caught up with China, which holds the fifth biggest gold reserves of 1,842 tons.

    Russia is the world’s largest gold buyer, and the third-largest producer. Reserve diversification is one of the primary reasons driving Russia to buy gold, according to the Central Bank.

Nunes: FISA Memo Just “Phase One,” Now Targeting State Department In “Phase Two”

  • Nunes: FISA Memo Just “Phase One,” Now Targeting State Department In “Phase Two”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Devin Nunes (R-CA) said that the investigation leading up to the four-page FISA memo released on Friday was only “phase one,” and that the House Intelligence Committee is currently in the middle of investigating the State Department over their involvement in surveillance abuses.

    “We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this,” said Nunes.

    “That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation.”
