Tonight’s Forecast Inside the Golden Globes: Lots of Snow with a Chance of Trump Tears

The entire star-studded audience at the Golden Globes practically cried in unison, after Meryl Streep took to the mic to lament over an incident that happened last year regarding what she thought was Donald Trump mocking a disabled reporter.
 
The rift was with NY Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who said Trump was lying about witnessing Muslims celebrating in New Jersey after 9/11 — which later proved out to be true. Without delving into old news, Trump said he wasn’t making fun of Serge’s physical disabilities, but instead mocking a reporter who was flustered.
 

I have no idea who this reporter, Serge Kovalski [sic], is, what he looks like or his level of intelligence. I don’t know if he is J.J. Watt or Muhammad Ali in his prime or somebody of less athletic or physical ability. Despite having one of the all-time great memories, I certainly do not remember him.
 
I merely mimicked what I thought would be a flustered reporter trying to get out of a statement he made long ago. If Mr. Kovaleski is handicapped, I would not know because I do not know what he looks like. If I did know, I would definitely not say anything about his appearance.

 
In light of all the horseshit taking place in the world, the fact that the United States is engaged in armed conflicts in 8 different countries and is led by a man who has literally destroyed the middle east, relations with Russia, and has divided this country along matters of race, gender and orientation more than any person in the history of the country, as well as compiling more debt than all of the previous Presidents combined, Meryl Streep decided that Trump mocking a reporter was the most important thing to talk about during her 5 minute speech at the Golden Globes tonight.
 

 
Once icy cold, floating through the air with glee, the snow flakes have hit the ground now and have melted.

Yuan Is Crashing (Again)

The volatility in the Chinese currency has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. After exploding 21 handles stronger in the biggest PBOC-engineered short-squeeze in history – erasing the entire post-election sell-off – offshore Yuan is now collapsing once again, down 350 pips tonight (and over 10 big figures from Thursday’s highs). While interbank rates have calmed down, the rush to exit the currency has not…

The last two days are the biggest drop in offshore Yuan since Aug 2015’s devaluation… as PBOC weakens its fix by the most sine June 2016.

 

Pushing historical volatility to its highest since the Aug 2015 devaluation…

For some context, this level of volatility is over 10 standard deviations away from the pre-Aug 2015 norms.

Notably the moves accelerate afterPBOC Advisor Fan Gang told Bloomberg TV…

  • *PBOC WANTS TO SEE FX RESERVES REDUCE SMOOTHLY, GRADUALLY: FAN
  • *CHINA POLICY MAKERS NOT LIKELY GO FURTHER ON OUTFLOW CURBS: FAN
  • *YUAN OVERVALUED IN PAST 3-4 YEARS AGAINST DOLLAR: FAN
  • *CHINA POLICY MAKERS NOT LIKELY TO DROP INTERVENTION: FAN
  • *USE OF YUAN HAS INCREASED DESPITE RECENT DEPRECIATION: FAN
  • *CHINA NEEDS LESS FX RESERVE AFTER YUAN’S INCLUSION IN SDR: FAN

Which was followed by the state-run Global Times newspaper says in an English-language editorial, saying that the Chinese people will demand its government to “take revenge” if Donald Trump reneges on the one-China policy after becoming U.S. President.
