The day began with another wheel barrow of guests on clown finance TV, not least Bullard - whom I'm still guessing with succeed Powell, and followed by the Ben Bernanke.
Bernanke was actually reluctant to even admit the US is in a recession, never mind an actual depression (GDP <10%). For now, the big names are mostly tip toeing on what is a horrific reality.
With sig' gains reversing to sig' declines in early morning, this came to mind...
A $2trn bailout works out to around $14k per US taxpayer. These remain wild times within the twilight zone, and yes, we're gonna need a bigger bailout.
US equities settled mostly net higher, despite an ugly closing 15mins, as Sanders was threatening to block a bailout bill.
Intraday price action remains very unstable, as reflected in the VIX, which today settled +3.7% at 63.95. Thursday will be 'interesting', not least as we're due a 'historic' weekly jobless claims number.
