MARKET TALK
MARKET TALK: Defensive start to the week, with e-minis & crude offered alongside
a bid in T-Notes, some of the reasons for the move:
- Sino-U.S. sabre rattling from Messrs Trump & Pompeo, with Chinese state media
also involved. Elsewhere, Australia's Telegraph wrote: "China deliberately
suppressed or destroyed evidence of the coronavirus outbreak in an "assault on
international transparency'' that cost tens of thousands of lives, according to
a dossier prepared by concerned Western governments on the COVID-19 contagion"
- North Korea firing shots across the DMZ, returned by South Korea. This was one
day after North Korean leader Kim's re-appearance after a ~3-week hiatus.
- BBG noted the EU Commission won't unveil its recovery fund proposal this week.
- Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway shed its U.S. airline holdings. Re: cash
levels Buffett said "we haven't done anything, because we don't see anything
that attractive to do. Now that could change very quickly or it may not change."
- Front month WTI may struggle on (per BBG): "S&P Global Inc., the company
behind the most closely followed commodity index, said it will roll West Texas
Intermediate crude oil futures for July into August for its commodity indexes."
