Risk Assets vs. Safe-Havens Update, 10/18/2011 1:30pm

Summary:

Equity bull curve, with an asterisk: safety isn't really backing up the bear.

Gold and the dollar still getting getting extra attention on the volume side, but all are less than normal volume compared to averages... some heavily so.

Risk Assets vs. Safe-Havens Update, 10/18/2011 9:00am Pre-Open

Summary:


Neutral curve, with gold the only standout, getting nailed.  Note that equity futures were down earlier in the pre-market, so the neutral state below reflects a climb back from an earlier equity bear curve.

In terms of volume it appears gold and the dollar are getting extra attention.
