    • 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.

    • Following the worst opening week to the year in the American stock market's history, U.S. index futures are lower by 0.6% in Sunday evening action. Shanghai opens for trade at 9:30 ET.
    • Stocks in China put in a modest bounce on Friday after the government suspended its circuit breaker rules, but that and a strong U.S. employment report weren't enough to boost U.S. markets, which fell 1% after opening nicely higher.
    • Oil's on the move as well, down 2% to $32.47 per barrel.

    • Goldman's equity team cuts $3 per share from its expectation of S&P 500 EPS for 2015-2017. The new numbers are $106, $117, and $126, respectively.
    • The revision means annual EPS growth of -7% in 2015 (the worst performance since 2008), 11% in 2015, and 8% in 2017.
    • At issue, naturally, is energy, and that sector last year likely posted a decline in operating EPS for the first time in 48 years. Also important topics are margins that appear to have peaked, and the risk of a broader economic slowdown.
    • On margins, it's all about tech, and in tech it's all about Apple. Goldman expects tech margins to peak this year and then begin to decline. If you can find an S&P 500 company that can raise margins, buy it.

    • With all the turmoil in China, there's been about as little chatter about the upcoming jobs report as one can remember, but economists are forecasting gains of 200K jobs and a steady unemployment rate at 5%.
    • The Shanghai Composite gained 1.95% overnight, Hong Kong was up 0.6%, and the Nikkei slipped 0.7%.
    • Europe's moved into the red after a higher open though, and while S&P 500 futures are up 0.6%, they were up more than 1% earlier.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up two basis points to 2.17%, gold is down $7 per ounce, and oil is up $0.16 per barrel to $33.42.

    • Europe's down about 3% at midday, Dow and S&P 500 futures are lower by 2.3%, and Nasdaq 100 by 3.1%.

    • There remain a few stalwarts - namely Japan, U.S. large caps, and European Small/Mid-caps - but these will soon succumb to what's already a global bear market, say UBS technicians Michael Riesner and Marc Muller.
    • At heart of the argument is the end of a seven-year bull cycle which began in 2009.
    • Turning specifically to the S&P 500 - it's in its 4th longest and 5th strongest bull run since 1900. Just knowing this would suggest the move has matured, they say.
    • Add to the bear case: 200-day moving averages rolling over in more and more markets globally, the break of the 2011 bull trend in the Russell 2000, and the equally-weighted Valueline-100 index.
    • Meb Faber adds to the discussion, noting half of global stock markets are currently in bear markets, about one-third are in 40% drawdowns, and ten are in 50%+ drawdowns.

    • A lot of headlines are blaming weak data out of China - where the services PMI fell to a 17-month low - but that's pretty weak sauce for sparking a global selloff. Besides, the Shanghai Composite rose 2.25% overnight. There was also news out of North Korea, which says it successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb.
    • Oil continues to slide, with WTI crude down another $0.95 per barrel to $35.02. Brent crude touched an 11-year low of $35.11.
    • Dow and S&P 500 futures are down 1.55%, and Nasdaq 100 by 1.8%. Europe's lower by a similar amount at midday.
    • Gold is ahead $7 per ounce to $1,085 and the 10-year Treasury yield is lower by five basis points to 2.19%.

    • Following a strong close yesterday, U.S. index futures were nicely in the green for most of the overnight session, but began taking on water a couple of hours ago, and are now down about 0.6% across the board.
    • Asia closed with modest losses as Beijing's move to prop markets sent Shanghai higher by about 3% in that market's final hour (it still closed down 0.25%). Europe's given up early gains and is now modestly lower.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is down three basis points to 2.23%, gold is up $4 per ounce to $1,079, and oil is down $0.12 per barrel to $36.63.
