Asian stocks fall sharply and then recover some but not all of their losses a day or so later. That seems to have been a recurring pattern over the past few weeks since the great global sell-off began and the past couple of days have been no different. Shares bounced back today, helped by decent retail sales data in the U.S. yesterday and a report that the Fed's QE tapering will be so gentle you won't even feel it. Japan (DXJ) +1.9%, Hong Kong (EWH) +0.4%, China (FXI) +0.6%, India (INDY) +1.5%, Australia (EWA) +2%, Philippines (EPHE) +2.1%, Thailand (THD) +3.6%.

    The global sell off is a result of Nikkei. Abenomics is particularly bad to Asia that serves as manufacturer for Japan. A lower yen means bad margin. Further the Japanese QE only allow speculators to sell or short Nikkei issues as it force Japanese corporations to apply the yen they get from QE to buy back it's own shares

    This volatility is entirely an engineered phenomenon designed to profit inside Big money at the expense of outside small money.
    Just as Bad governments use currency debasement to engage in mass, repeat, organized theft so Bad Money uses fake volatility and manufactured turbulence.

    Is the Bernake put back in play? I do not believe it.
