    • El Nino is arriving ahead of schedule, writes Kevin Ferry, noting the heavy rain and mudslides north of Los Angeles - reports most had not expected to see until early next year.
    • Scientists believe this will be the largest El Nino since 1997/98, with the difference now being there's been no run-up in corn and bean prices ahead of the event.
    • This also has implications for fixed-income, as there's nothing like a series of lock limit-up days in the grains to get the masses chattering about inflation.
    • Out-of-the-money lotto tickets on the grains may be worth a look, concludes Ferry.

    • PowerShares (NYSE:IVZ) temporarily suspended creations yesterday while taking over full management of the funds from partner Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management.
    • With creations allowed again, the funds are no longer susceptible to big premiums such as those seen in closed-end funds, writes Chris Dietrich. Still watch closely, at least for today. PowerShares: "It is possible that the market value of the funds’ shares may be affected by the resumption of issuances of shares of the funds, and the market value may be higher or lower than the intraday indicative value of the shares.":
    • The funds: DBC, DBV, DBE, DBO, DBP, DGL, DBS, DBB, DBA, UUP, UDN.
    • Previously: PowerShares temporarily suspends creations on 11 ETFs (Feb. 25)

    • The move comes as PowerShares (a unit of IVZ) takes over management of the funds from what had been a joint arrangement with Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management.
    • PowerShares: "There may be increases in the spread they quote between offers to buy and sell shares ... In addition, there could be a significant variation between the market price at which shares are traded and the shares’ net asset value ... Invesco believes that any potential impact to the market in shares of the funds will not extend beyond the time of the suspension.”
    • Those affected: DBC, DBV, DBE, DBO, DBP, DGL, DBS, DBB, DBA, UUP, UDN.
