What a historic times! After relentless selling and the fastest correction on record according to Deutsche Bank, we’re seeing some crazy after-weekend moves in the over-night session. S&P 500 index futures are limit down (meaning, after a quick -5% move trading has been halted until the US opens), bond prices are surging and that oil… man, crude oil was down -30% from Friday’s close in just a matter of minutes!

Brent oil’s move at the moment stands as the 2nd largest one day move ever. On Jan 17th, 1991 Brent closed down -34.8% in a day. Let’s see where it closes at today, but the next largest move is -13.5%, so today’s move will be either the largest or second largest on record. Here’s a chart of WTI oil.

I don’t know how the stock market will react once the US session starts. Will we see a bounce, or a continuation of selling is anyone’s guess at this point. However, I hope you took precautionary measures in February when I posted Bumpy road ahead and Bonds, buy Bonds. Hope you’re safe and were able to limit you losses.
