Summary:  That did not age well

Good Morning,

Despite the Feds strong indication that a June hike of 75BPS was off the table, the market feels differently. The probability of a hike by 75 BPS is priced in at 79% after the high increase of labor costs.

This sparked a huge waive of risk aversion. Indexes fall massively, with the Dow -3.12%, S&P -3.56%, and the Nasdaq -4.99%. Big tech lost heavily and the Nasdaq lost the most since June 2020, the 10 day realized Vol in the S%P500 is at the highest since early 2020 near 40%.

The MSCI Asia gave up 2.5%.

GBP Lost heavily to 1.2360 and EURUSD to 1.0526, the USD Index is at the highest level since 2003 at 103.62.

Gold and Silver gave up the FOMC gains and are currently trading at 22.50 and 1875 and Bitcoin confirms it is not traded as a save haven but a risky asset, giving up 10%.

US 10 years yields rose to 3.1% high and now gave up 0.05%.

 The SEC names  over 80 firms to a list of entities facing possible delisting  from American exchanges

Oil rises on fears of a European Embargo against Russia and reports that US intelligence agencies are supporting Ukraine in identifying high value targets may fuel further aggression.

Today, US Labor data including the non-farm payrolls and the average earnings at 14:30 will be the key event, at 15:15, 17:00 and 21.20 Fed-speakers will be speaking at different events and will be in focus for hints on the stance of the Fed.

Remain cautious and expect sharp moves at any time.
