Ghillie Suit

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Ghillie SuitA Bigfoot hoax turned tragic when a middle aged man named Randy Lee Tenley dressed in a Ghillie suit and got run down, twice. Once by a 15 and once by a 17 year old girl. It’s being reported that Tenley was inciting drivers in Montana to think they’d seen Bigfoot. (cnn, huffpo)

You have to admit the idea, is pretty funny, if it wasn’t so tragic. The poor girls will probably never drive again. On the other hand it got me thinking…

What if someone dressed as Donald Trump and started hanging out near Arianna Huffington’s house? Just an idea.

ES ZN Weekly Chart

ZN and ES Divergence

ES ZN Weekly ChartHas the strength in the 10 Year Treasury Note (ZN) been keeping a lid on the S&P Futures (ES)? Looks like equity investors are getting cold feet pre-QE.

Over the last week the 10Yr has shown consistent strength climbing from a low of 132.055 to 133. 275 while over the same period ES as come from $1424.91 down to $1411.50.

Under popular logic this divergence is normal. If the two trends continue we should see weakness in the S&P Futures.

This chart is worth considering.
