    Hedge funds bet the sell-off is over: 'Correction has run its course'

    Despite a deterioration in U.S.-China trade relations and a sell-off starting in early May and continuing through Monday, many hedge funds have closed positions betting on a VIX spike. The call-to-put ratio for VIX options — that is, the percentage of people betting on a rise versus a fall in volatility— has since returned to lows not seen for months. "It would appear that the majority of hedge funds do not expect another sharp rise in volatility, and that they have concluded that the correction has run its course," Takada wrote.

    What to Expect From U.S. Stocks After Volatility Goes Haywire

    There have been six episodes over the past five years during which the two-day change in the Cboe Volatility Index exceeded the 6.45-point surge seen in the opening sessions of this week that propelled Wall Street’s fear gauge to the highest since January. It took time for markets to digest the ramifications of China’s shock devaluation of its currency, but by late in the month stocks were in meltdown mode. On Friday, Aug. 21, the VIX closed above 28, almost 13 points above where it ended Wednesday.

    With the expected pricing of Uber next week, U.S. IPO issuance will be at the highest level since 2008. Volatility is also depressed, with the VIX on a steady downtrend.

    Stocks skid as healthcare plunge obscures China rebound

    Stocks around the globe fell on Wednesday as a continued flight from healthcare shares dragged on Wall Street, overshadowing upbeat economic data from China. The S&P 500 dipped as the healthcare index dived 2.9% to erase its year-to-date gains on continued fallout from concerns about potential changes to U.S. policy, including a "Medicare for All" proposal by Senator Bernie Sanders. The decline in U.S. stocks weighed on MSCI's 47-country world index, which was buoyed earlier by better-than-expected Chinese data showing the country's economy grew 6.4% in the first quarter.

    Markets Need to Keep an Eye on the Lucky Country

    The Australia dollar is usually one of the major beneficiaries of a global “risk on” rally in markets like the one this year given its close economic ties to China. The latest decline came as Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Philip Lowe shifted to a neutral policy outlook as he acknowledged increased economic risks at home and abroad. Indeed, the nation’s economic data has been consistently falling below analysts’ forecasts since the beginning of December as measured by the Citi Economic Surprise Indexes amid a weakening housing market and high consumer debt loads.
