Are you a diligent US-based worker who's tired of watching inflation wipe out what little wage gains you've managed to scrape together over the past few years? Well, if you're looking for a pay boost, but don't want to go through all the trouble of finding another better-paying job, Bloomberg has a suggestion: Try moving to Singapore. According to HSBC’s annual Expat Explorer, 45% of expats reported earning more money working abroad than they did working in the US. For the average expat, moving abroad boosted their pay by 21%, with the highest-paying jobs found in...

Morgan Stanley: "We Just Saw A Record Unwind Of Levered Hedge Fund Trades"
7:28 AM EST By: Zero Hedge

Yesterday, just before the selling accelerated in earnest, we warned that CTAs and other systematic, trend-following funds had finally joined the selling, as models that track equity trends flipped to a short signal. It wasn't just the model-driven funds that were dumping however. According to Morgan Stanley derivatives strategists Rob Cronin, Ross Montgomery, there was a record unwind of levered HF trades in the EU Factor space amid very stressed trading in cash market with elevated bid/offer spreads and BIG volumes trading bid side (less so in futs) as "factor panic turned to market panic."...

The Macro Downgrade Cycle Begins...
9:41 AM EST By: Zero Hedge

There was an old joke among bond investors that use to say no AAA-rated bond had ever defaulted... because it was downgraded several times first. By the time the issuer was in restructuring, it was junk accredited long before then. It ceased being funny around February 2007. There is something similar and similarly tragic that takes place in the wider macro context.The perpetual optimism of each global reflation is at first always extrapolated to the most extreme. The reappearance of positive numbers in whichever set of economic accounts is converted into the definitive sign that the economy will go on forever in its best state. This has happened, of course, several times so far across the last eleven years; including once in the middle of 2008...

Trader Warns "It's Time To Read The Actual News", Not Intraday Dead-Cat-Bounce Charts
11:59 AM EST By: Zero Hedge

"We won’t ever solve the world’s problems if dead-cat bounces keep being hailed as that obvious dip to buy," writes former fund manager and FX trader Richard Breslow, and this morning's panic-bid bounce in tech stocks is a perfect anecdote for that...
One quick glimpse at the Nasdaq's manic rise and it's evident, as Breslow notes, that someone (or something), seriously believes that "why would the bounces happen if solutions to our woes aren’t in hand?" As Breslow notes, wasn't it bad enough that for a decade we measured all economic success based on the level of equity prices. That may no longer be the best campaign line, because equity markets look awfully soggy, right across the board...

Netflix Announces $2BN Junk Bond Offering, Enough To Fund Two Quarters Of Cash Burn
Just six months after Netflix added $1.9 billion in Ba3/BB- rated junk bonds (upsized from an initial offering of $1.5 billion) to its balance sheet to fund its ravenous cash burn global expansion, moments ago - and just one week after reporting a whopping 7 million new subscribers in Q3 and projecting a record 9.4...

The wave of development out the Permian Basin continues to fuel the fortunes of oil producers operating in West Texas and New Mexico. The latest boost in the region is coming from a new kind of oil being produced in West Texas, known as West Texas Intermediate Light, or WTI Light. Sales of the new stream of light crude began in September, securing a market for the increasingly less dense oil being pumped from the largest U.S. shale play. The announcement of a new product is yet another signal of good news from the region that pushed the U.S. into position as the world’s leading crude oil producer again...
The Next Lithium: The Battle For Element 23
It’s no longer a technological maybe. Vanadium is here, and the lithium sector should be concerned. Forget everything you think know about the looming $13-billion energy storage market by 2025. You can even forget everything you know about renewable energy, and the batteries behind the electric vehicle revolution. Right now, the future is about Element 23, and it may be bigger than anything the energy industry has seen—ever. It’s the key ingredient to flow batteries that run on “liquid electricity”. It’s the evolution in the revolution. They won’t replace the small battery lithium market. Instead, they’ll do...
If Gold Crosses This Line, It’s “Off to the Races”
10:08 AM EST By: Wall Street Examiner
Last week and so far this week, the price of gold has also traded above the 9-12 month cycle moving average. These are both signs that those cycles have bottomed, and are poised to turn up. Gold must now close above the high of the range of the past 4 weeks of 1215 to confirm a tradable upturn in those two cycles. If it does, it could be off to the races. I suggested a couple of low risk plays to participate in a rally. Both gold itself, and the mining stocks have since had a nice move. Here's a brief look at the outlook, and a review of my suggested strategy...
Element 23: The Most Important Commodity You’ve Never Heard Of
Forget about lithium, last year’s “White Petroleum.” It’s about to be left in the dust. The mineral of the moment is Vanadium…the key to the next energy revolution. Analysts pegged it as the “metal to watch” in January. And they were right. The price of vanadium has soared 300% in the past three years. According to Bushveld Minerals’ CEO, vanadium was the best performing battery mineral of 2017. It’s already a hot commodity for the steel industry…but that’s just the beginning. The mineral is about to be in high demand, thanks to its role in a revolutionary new battery technology and the burgeoning steel industry in the U.S...
Bitcoin Futures Trading Volumes Surge 41% In Q3, CME Reports
12:01 PM EST By: Zero Hedge
Bitcoin (BTC) futures trading at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) has continued to grow in Q3, the U.S.-based exchange reported in a tweet Wednesday, Oct. 17. The CME has revealed that the average daily trading volume (ADV) of Bitcoin futures has increased by 41 percent in Q3 over Q2, while open interest (OI) - or the number of open contracts on Bitcoin futures - has risen by 19 percent in the third quarter. Compared to the results of the second quarter (over the first quarter), the trading dynamics are now growing at a slower pace in Q3. On July 20, the CME reported that Bitcoin futures trading in Q2 had seen a large increase...

Infosys (INFY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Sumeet Jain saying yesterday's Q2 results were in-line but at the expense of "unexpectedly" higher investments. 2. Netflix (NFLX) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Andy Hargreaves citing quarterly results. While the analyst maintains a favorable view of Netflix's strategic positioning, he believes improving investment efficiency or significant ancillary opportunities are needed to drive upside from current levels, and he does not anticipate either over the next year...

Forget Lithium, This Will Spark The Next Battery Boom
9:02 AM EST By:
If you were looking for the perfect energy stock. What would it look like? First, you'd look for an incredibly rare element... one with limited supply. Second, you'd want an element now under the radar... but about to break out with huge potential demand. Third, you'd want a company with a virtual monopoly on the element. And these three things may well have just aligned. There's a new metal -- not any of the usual precious or rare earth metals -- that is seeing demand soar. And one little-known miner has a virtual monopoly on U.S. supply...
