Financial Jargon You Can’t Understand.

The US stock market fell last week. The biggest fall since 2008.

Here’s a prediction of what could happen next:

“Dealer short gamma hedging into the down trade, mechanical systematic deleveraging and dynamic shorting of Futures now are at risk of a “turn,” as Equities downside / VIX upsides hedges are increasingly likely to be monetized, creating violently “squeezy” flows in the Equities market which has recently been purged.”

“Nobody knows. No-one really understands the system as it actually works. And that includes policy-makers.”

Yikes.
