Nasdaq Rebounds To Record Highs As T-Bill Turmoil Continues

Another day, another record high in tech stocks...

 

A very ugly 3mo T-Bill auction today (highest yield since Lehman and inverting the yield curve) sent yields soaring once again as debt-ceiling concerns are spooking cash markets (but not stocks)...

But as Bloomberg notes, markets focused once again on the White House as news about Russian ties continued to hold sway. Jared Kushner told reporters after his Senate testimony he did nothing wrong. “Let me be very clear. I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so,” Kushner said. The benign news calmed risk anxiety.

Trannies are down for the 6th day in a row (to lowest close in a month) as Nasdaq rallies to new record highs (up 11 of the last 12 days) - a dramatically divergent day...

Gold also went nowhere today, trading in a very narrow range...

 

Bitcoin was also very quite today...
