Stocks, Dollar Plunge While Precious Metals Surge

 380 new 52-week lows dominated the meager 18 new 52-week highs. The early snap higher in Treasury yields (following the claims data) sparked the 'disorderly rotation' out of stocks that we have warned of and as stocks saw no significant BTFD mentality so Treasuries went modestly bid (ending the day only 5bps higher in yield) with the belly (7Y) 8bps off its intraday high yields. The USD was smashed lower as JPY and EUR strength dominated flow (and carry-unwind) which further helped push the story of the day - gold and silver - up large on the day (+2.1% and 5.6% respectively on the day). VIX surged to 14.5%, credit underperformed, as the Dow broke its 50DMA (15,280) closing near its 100DMA (15,097). Nikkei futures are -530 From yesterday's highs

 Heavy volume today... (no matter what one is told by the TV, trading volume was well above average today)...
