Brief Update: Markets are out of their elements, as the S&P Futures (ES) are up 18 handles at 1667 on the back of old news that Republicans are “Considering” a clean 6 week bill. Meaning they will kick the can if they approve it. So absolutely no progress has been made, yet we are up over 28 handles from the 1640 low we saw yesterday. This should get fun. VIX Futures smashed lower, as the JPY all night took ES higher.
