Futures flat as Ukraine tensions ebb

  • After a couple of days of big premarket action, stock index futures are flat ahead of the Wednesday open as concerns about military conflict in Eastern Europe fade.
  • Europe's down marginally and Asia mostly failed to respond to the big rally in the West overnight (though the Nikkei managed a 1.2% gain).
  • the 10-year Treasury yield is flat at 2.7% after a big 10 basis point jump yesterday and gold is flat at $1,335 per ounce.

    Putin wins. Ukraine is split. Investors and much of the world accept the reality. The US Regime looks craven and impotent and the EU farcical.

    Ukraine is still united. Ukrainian soldiers in Crimea are full of patriotism and have no willing to surrender. And Putin became agressor, dictators in the eyes of all world.

    Rumor has it that Monsieur Kerry worked out a deal in Kiev. Russia agreed to reannex Ukraine and Kerry agreed to cede Alaska back to Russia. Monsieur Kerry was heard to snicker that he got the best of Putin. Said Frenchie, " Let the Russians deal with the big ice melt from global warming while I eat cake."

    The world has its head in the sand. There is no way Putin pulls this off without armed conflict.
    talk about correlation risk. wait til you see what happens everywhere once the disaster commences.
