    • Holding modest losses for most of the session, the major averages are now off more than 1% as oil (USO -6.8%) gives back a big chunk of its gains from late last week. S&P 500 (SPY -1.4%), Nasdaq 100 (QQQ -1.3%).
    • Energy (XLE -3.9%) is naturally leading today's selling, but the financials (XLF -1.9%) are struggling as well. This just in: the XLF's 12.4% loss YTD is greater than the XLE (down 11.2%).

    • Retail sales unexpectedly slipped in December, and the NY Fed's manufacturing survey shows business activity in that region tumbling at the fastest pace since the Great Recession.

    • The day's declines have picked up a good bit of steam, with all of the major averages sitting at session lows a bit more than an hour before the close.

    • Leading sectors on the downside: Energy (XLE -2.5%) and Financials (XLF -2.4%). What's working? Utilities (XLU), barely.

    • The SocGen strategist says the West is about to be hit by a wave of deflation from emerging market economies and that central banks were unaware of the disaster about to hit them.
    • “I realize most people think I am talking utter garbage but I’m used to that. And maybe I am! But the truth will come out in the next recession which may be pretty close now,” Edwards says.
    • “The previous bear market low was in March 2009 when the S&P reached 666. I think we’ll go below that within this bear market.
    • “Developments in the global economy will push the U.S. back into recession. The financial crisis will reawaken. It will be every bit as bad as in 2008-09 and it will turn very ugly indeed.
    • “Emerging market currencies are still in freefall. The U.S. corporate sector is being crushed by the appreciation of the dollar.
    • He says the U.S. economy is in far worse shape than the Fed realizes: “We have seen massive credit expansion in the U.S. This is not for real economic activity; it is borrowing to finance share buybacks.”
    • Edwards attacked the “incredible conceit” of central bankers, who had failed to learn the lessons of the housing bubble that led to the financial crisis and slump of 2008-09. “They didn’t understand the system then and they don’t understand how they are screwing up again. Deflation is upon us and the central banks can’t see it.”
    • Note: Edwards's "Ice Age" thesis goes back to Aug. 2008, and was reiterated in Dec. 2009, Sept. 2011, and May 2012.

    • For the last seven years, the bank's equity strategists have urged investors to buy the dips, but no more, says JPMorgan's Mislav Matejka.
    • Things don't look hot technically, and fundamental factors like anemic corporate earnings, weakness in manufacturing (the PMI has taken up residence below 50), and soft commodities are flashing warnings signs as well. "We fear that the incoming fourth-quarter reporting season won’t be able to provide much reassurance for stocks,” says Matejka.
    • BTIG technician Katie Stockton takes a similar view, and advises selling what should be a long overdue bounce this week. The next level of support for the S&P 500 is 1,872 vs. the current 1,915, she says.
