"It Appears China Has Sent The World A Prodigious False Reflation Signal"

"It appears that there is virtually no price pass through anywhere in the production chain in China. This is not sustainable, as the people who actually sell the stuff that requires the steel, iron ore, coking coal, copper, etc. are seeing their margins squeezed as a result of rampant speculation in commodity markets (fueled by excess liquidity “sloshing” around), NOT END MARKET DEMAND."

Euro, Bund Yields Spike As Draghi "No Longer Sees Urgency In Taking Further Actions"

'Dovish' Draghi Explains Why 'Good' European News Won't Stop Him - ECB Press Conference Live Feed

Leaving rates unchanged (no surprise) and maintaining his dovish forward guidance, Mario Draghi has a tough job this morning to paint a picture of a European economy with "downside risks" which means he has to keep buying everything while every asset-gatherer in the world is crowing of Europe's comeback (rising growth, surging inflation, falling unemployment). We are sure the ex-Goldman partner will find a way to justify "lower for longer."

Energy Credit Risk Soars As Crude Carnage Continues

Just when you thought it was safe to go all-in on energy stocks, credit, and commodities because, well, what could go wrong; crude's collapse in the last few days (amid record long speculators) has smashed Energy credit markets and sent high-yield bond prices cratering.

"Wrong Way Gartman"...

"We Failed Miserably": Gartman Stopped Out Of Latest Oil Long

"We failed… miserably… in paying attention to the shifting nature of the term structure for more than a week ago we noted a change that was taking place and which was incipiently bearish of crude oil, but we failed to pay proper and full heed to the signals that this shift was sending to us. This is unforgiveable. It shall not happen again." - Dennis Gartman

Moments ago the ECB kept all three rates on hold, however in a dovish addition, it kept its current forward guidance which some analysts had expected may be scrapped, by noting that "the Governing Council continues to expect the key ECB interest rates to remain at present or lower levels for an extended period of time, and well past the horizon of the net asset purchases."

Trump Offers Russia Ambassador Post To Putin-Critic Jon Huntsman

President Trump plans to nominate Jon Huntsman - who was US ambassador to Singapore and China under Presidents George H.W. Bush and Obama - as ambassador to Russia, the latest sign of backtracking from plans for Washington-Moscow conciliation.

ECB Preview: Don't Expect Fireworks Yet

Little is expected from the rate decision itself at 1245GMT with analysts firmly expecting the central bank to stand pat on rates. With regards to the press conference, any indications that the ECB are taking a more neutral stance or that the ECB are beginning to think about curtailing existing policy given recent economic development, is likely to be seen as a hawkish factor for European assets.

Crude Plunges Below $49, Dragging Markets Lower; All Eyes On Draghi

While trader attention will soon be focused on the ECB and any potential tightening hints from the central bank, a more pressing development as US traders walk in today, will be ongoing collapse in WTI, which after crashing 5.5% yesterday, has tumbled more than 2% this morning, sliding not only below $50 for the first time since December 1, but also dropped under $49, as a near record number of net long spec positions suddenly rushes to unwind their exposure.

The Most Shocking Revelation From The CIA-Spying Scandal

Spygate: America's Political Police Vs. Donald J. Trump

The campaign to frame up and discredit Trump and his associates is characteristic of how a police state routinely operates. A national security apparatus that vacuums up all our communications and stores them for later retrieval has been utilized by political operatives to go after their enemies – and not even the President of the United States is immune.

Are We Witnessing The Weirdest Moment In Economic History?

"If you thought 2016 was weird, I suggest you get comfortable with the surreal because it is not going away anytime soon. 2017 is a veritable treasure trove of falling elevators... it seems to me that many of these events, stacked so closely together in the next few weeks, are not coincidental in their timing."

New Poll Shows Hillary Favorability Sinking to All-Time Low As Trump Jumps

from Zero Hedge:
After a recent speech at her alma mater, Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton was asked by a young snowflake what she would change about her 2016 campaign if she had it to do all over again, to which she quickly responded, “I’d win.”
But while Hillary seems to be fairly optimistic after her staggering 2016 loss, a new poll from Suffolk University reveals that her ‘favorability’ ratings among registered voters have dipped to all-time lows at only 35%.
As the Washington Post points out, Hillary’s decline is due to both Democrats and independents apparently souring on her.

Home Again, and Hello Dante

by Mogambo Guru, Gold Seek:
Hey! Look! Here I am! Over here! I’m back! (Sound of thunderous applause). Thanks! Wonderful to be here!
I know that you, like most people, are probably scratching your head quizzically, asking yourself “Who is this doofus who calls himself Mighty Magnificent Mogambo in the next paragraph, which doesn’t even make sense? And who cares that he is back, which is not to mention why am I reading this stupid crap in the first freaking place?”
Or perhaps you are wondering “Where have you been all this lonely, lonely time, oh, Mighty Magnificent Mogambo (MMM), that you can now announce your triumphant return to the dispensing of wit and wonder about things such as, oh, I dunno, maybe, for example, how we are frantically screaming ‘We’re Freaking Doomed (WFD) because of all the absolutely INSANE amounts of money and the INSANE amounts of accompanying debt created by the evil Federal Reserve and all the other dirtbag central banks around the world’ all these many, many years?”

Atlanta Fed GDPNow Forecast Spirals Down in Amazing Manner

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
Where has all the optimism gone?
The Atlanta Fed’s GDPNow model, which forecasts GDP growth in the US in the current quarter, picks up data as it is released and changes the forecast in real time. As the quarter advances and as more data is included, it becomes a more accurate predictor, not of actual economic growth, but of GDP as measured in the first estimate for that quarter by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). So now we’re 67 days into the first quarter, and the GDPNow forecast has been spiraling down in an amazing manner for the past nine days.
The model now forecasts GDP growth in Q1 of 1.2% seasonally adjusted annual rate. This means that if the economy continues to grow at this rate for the rest of the year, annual GDP growth would be 1.2%, which would be the worst since the Financial Crisis.

WikiLeaks has further exposed the Central Intelligence Agency’s spying capabilities in an explosive new document dump dubbed “Vault 7.” The vault is a massive collection of data regarding CIA surveillance activities with documents that detail everything from the CIA’s infiltration of smart phones, televisions, and cars, to the creation of a hacking station posing as a U.S. Consulate in Germany.

Obama Turned CIA and FBI Into Instruments Of The State: “Their Missions Cannot Be Fulfilled In A Manner Beneficial To The Defense Of The United States”

by Jeremiah Johnson, SHTFPlan:
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was created in 1947 at the direction of President Truman. It had “evolved” from the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) used to perform clandestine military and espionage operations during World War II. The legal framework used to justify the CIA’s operations took several forms. The National Security Act of 1947 allowed the CIA special exemptions from the normal Congressional oversight.
The 1947 Act contained a provision that allowed the CIA “to perform such other functions and duties related to intelligence…as the National Security Council may from time to time direct.” This was followed (and expanded upon) by the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949, and subsequent charters and Presidential Directives that eventually enabled it to operate (almost unrestricted) at the direction of the President while effectively bypassing accountability to Congress.
