Yesterday's session was quite a spectacle with commodities plunging 5% as the USD saw massive breakout against the EUR as punitive energy prices in Europe were igniting recession fears once again. With bond yields following commodities lower equities flows went into overdrive with commodity stocks naturally trading lower but the session evolved to a massive buy the worst performers this year and sell the best performers. In that world all the 'junk' pockets of equities rallied on the signal from commodities that a recession could be coming. July is typically a low liquidity month so moves can easily be amplified so remember this before putting too much weight on yesterday's moves. Today's pod features Peter Garnry on equities and Ole Hansen on commodities.
