Dele Alli’s rush of blood renders Tottenham’s intent fruitless | Jacob Steinberg

Mauricio Pochettino’s side showed the kind of intensity required for a Europa League comeback but fell short after their midfielder’s red card against GentA Spursified Wembley felt like an incongruous setting for a Thursday night in the company of the eighth-best side in Belgium. Then again, that was precisely the kind of sniffy attitude that Tottenham Hotspur had to leave at the door if they were going to avoid another continental embarrassment. They have reached a point in their development where anything less than absolute commitment in the Europa League is impossible to defend, for all that football at their temporary European home was supposed to involve glamour ties against Barcelona and Real Madrid instead of the relative modesty of KAA Gent.

The Quincunx Page Turner

First, let me say that this post is primarily a page turner. Turning the page on the blog to free up white space for the comment section to use as the last one is a bit full. It is purely a lift of a post I wrote elsewhere and should be considered as Polyfilla in the decorative works of the new TMM2. ------It's been a while since I last posted as I have been waiting for the realisation that Trump was not going to be a shoehorn to economic prosperity to dawn, as his extremes either shock the rest of the world into moving away from buying US assets or his changes collapse in a cloud of impracticality. Neither of which has happened.My simplistic de-Trumping plan has turned from a binary game of all on / all off into a multi-dimensional game of chess. Hard Trump and Soft Trump, to borrow a Brexit phrase, are forms of Trumpism that are quantum-like and more probability waves than certainties. The strength of policy swings on a Tweet or judicial feedback. With foreign policy we have seen back peddling from 'hard' as the one China policy appears to have been acknowledged, Japan declared ‘best friend’ and Canada told that Trump is only planning ‘tweaks’ to NAFTA. Yet the rhetoric against the likes of Basel III remains as strongly worded as ever and the deregulation of US banks could cause some of the greatest strains between the US and EU. Since the 2008 crisis regulations have been seen as much a moral crusade as one of practicality. Dodd-Frank and Volker, though nice ideas, were never fit for purpose and the laws of unforeseen consequences have produced all sorts of schisms, whether it is liquidity holes in corporate bond markets or just ridiculous generalised reporting conditions on markets that were not exchange based. So getting rid of these, or at least watering them down, would be a sensible compromise between practicality and moral protection. At least that’s the line I am willing to excuse the panel of top bankers currently advising Trump with.Basel III is a bigger issue. If McHenry’s letter to Yellen is properly representative of new policy then it hits the EU head on. The EU has been proudly touting its new banking regulations which should identify weak banks (yes, done in style) and be part of the path towards a unified European financial system, whilst also allow the politicians to wave a huge moral flag in triumph. But what happens if the US banks are suddenly told they don't have to play by the same rules? They instantly have a competitive advantage unless the EU backtracks and loosens Basel III in response - Highly unlikely for them to do such a massive U-Turn just because Trump has pushed them into a corner - or they immediately remove the US’s European banking licenses if they don't comply.This is al the more interesting coming in the wake of Brexit where apparently the US banks are threatening to up-sticks for continental Europe, well let’s be honest, it’s a threat as none of them really want to go. France may well be offering sanctuary to US scientists and the world's bankers, but if it were really that great they would have gone there already.There is a small version of the State of Liberty on the banks of the Seine in Paris and I was wondering if they should attach a plaque to it similar to the famous one in one in New York -Give me your scientists, your bankers, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched liberals of your teeming shore. Send these, the visa-less, Trump-tossed to me, I lift my high tax rates besides the red tape. But if the US banks aren’t going to be playing to Basel rules there may not be that tide of bankers. Indeed, the UK would be looking pretty as an intermediary between the two. It would also support another idea I was nursing, the introduction of an offshore Euro market in line with the original Eurodollar market. If London launched such a beast the EU would not be able to control it yet it would provide a method for EU unregulated institutions to fund and lend Euros just as the Eurodollar market did for Russian held dollars when it was established. The great thing about the City is that it has thrived on bypassing regulations, or rather, creating the most efficient systems to mitigate their impacts. It's what it thrives upon.But back to the markets, I am lost. I see risk piling up everywhere except in the markets, which are driving on upwards. I don’t need to list the European stresses but I think this sums up the EU's position pretty well.There are so many possible outcomes to current uncertainties I am looking at the markets as a quincunx-  not a Harry Potter creature but another name for the 'bean machine' devised by Sir Francis Galton.The box itself could even be used as a metaphor for Trump's policies. An Executive Order, or even just a tweet, is dropped in the top and it rattles down through so may deflecting processes that, though you think you have an idea where it is heading, the policy's final resting place may be some way off where it started.Add in the rest of global politics and you end up with so many variables, or pins in the box, that the sum of paths may well mean that there are not any fat tails, but the standard deviation of the resulting distribution is a lot wider than volatility pricing is currently suggesting.I have been discussing buying volatility now rather than direction as I was, or so far have been, wrong on direction but I am being amply reminded that the scenario we have could be looking like the great vol compression of 2006. With Mr. Cohn (bless his poor cotton socks having to take that meager compensation for having to give up his job at GS) at the helm, the perception is we are going to have a smooth path to financial wonderfulness with the lifting of bank restrictions and the extension of credit underwriting all risk. In a way it's a passing of stimulus back from public QE to the private sector banks, a pay off for, or by-product of, lifting the bank restrictions. Some would no doubt ask what happened two years later, but we won't go into that now. But, back to volatility,  buying vol doesn't necessarily need a turn lower in markets to perform, though falls in markets do drive up implied volatility. You can buy implied volatility and be measured against realised by managing the hedges rather than, as with the VIX, buying implied volatility and being measured against implied volatility. There is a big difference meaning you can make money being long vol on rallies, despite perceptions. Especially when people gets squeezed out of a large short call positions.----Right there you go commenters, new space to play with.

South Korea Needs to Realize That North Korea Isn't Going to Collapse

Robert E Kelly Security, Asia Seoul has grown dangerously complacent. With a new president in the White House, it is the season of reviews and reassessments, with no problem more thorny than North Korea. President Barack Obama apparently told President Donald Trump that North Korea is at the top of America’s foreign challenges. As North Korea continues its missile and nuclear tests, this is almost certainly the case. The yield of the North’s most recent nuclear test has exceeded that of weapons used by the United States during World War II. The country’s missile program has dabbled in submarine-launched ballistic missiles, road mobile launchers and intercontinental ballistic missiles. If these platforms genuinely work, then North Korea could become the first new country to be able to strike the continental United States since the depths of the Cold War decades ago. Coupled with President Trump’s explosive, erratic personality, the possibility of a serious clash is greater than it has been in previous years. There is a strong sense that North Korea lives on borrowed time. As Victor Cha writes, it is the “impossible state.” Its economy is weak. Its ostensible ideology is long since bankrupt. Its people are increasingly aware that their southern kinsmen live vastly healthier, wealthier and happier lives. The regime, for all its ferocity, is alienated from its own people whose uprising it fears. Its capital approximates a feudal city-state estranged from its own impoverished piedmont. It is extremely dependent on China for licit trade, illicit trade and financial services. Its conventional forces are technological dated. Hence the regular predictions, going back decades, that North Korea’s fall is imminent. It seems like we only need to find the final magic bullet to finally put this zombie down. Read full article

Медовый месяц инвесторов с ОПЕК подходит к концу на фоне бума американского сланца

Любви инвесторов к ОПЕК есть предел. После беспрецедентного оптимизма в отношении способности ОПЕК решить проблему глобального избытка нефти на рынке, менеджеры активов впервые за месяц снижают свои позиции на рост WTI. В то время как картель и+ другие крупные экспортеры выкачивают меньше сырой нефти, американские запасы и добыча растут, сланцевые производители продолжают запускать новые буровые вышки. Американская эталонная марка нефти торговалась в диапазоне $50-$55 за баррель в течение последних двух месяцев.   ОПЕК показал максимальную в своей истории готовность договариваться по снижению добычи и исполнять обещанное. В прошлом картель неохотно выполнял договоренности, чтобы не потерять доход и рыночную долю. Бывший министр нефти Саудовской Аравии Али Аль-Наими заявил 2 декабря о том, что в исторической перспективе страны ОПЕК “были склонны к обману”. Тем временем американские производители на прошлой неделе расширили количество буровых вышек до максимального значения более чем за четыре года,  так как богатые нефтью месторождения в Техасе и Оклахоме привлекли существенные инвестиции Exxon Mobil Corp. и Continental Resources Inc. Добыча нефти в США выросла до 8.98 млн. баррелей в день в течение недели вплоть по 3 февраля по данным EIA. Таким образом, прирост составил около полумиллиона баррелей в день с минимального значения в прошлом году. В EIA ожидают, что добыча достигнет 9.53 млн. баррелей в сутки в следующем году - максимума с 1970 года. Хедж-фонды сократили количество длинных позиций на 5.4% за неделю вплоть по 7 февраля, показали данные Комиссии по торговле товарными фьючерсами. Марка WTI потеряла 1.2% до $52.17 за баррель за отчетную неделю, закрывшись на $53.86 10 февраля. Investor Honeymoon With OPEC Falters as Shale Drilling Booms, Bloomberg, Feb 13Источник: FxTeam

North Korea Fires Unidentified Ballistic Missile

The test was of a medium- or intermediate-range missile that landed in the Sea of Japan, according to the U.S. defense department, not an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM), which the North has said it could test at any time. The launch marks the first test of Trump’s vow to get tough on a North Korean regime that last year tested nuclear devices and ballistic missiles at an unprecedented rate in violation of United Nations resolutions. A U.S. official said the Trump administration had been expecting a North Korean “provocation” soon after taking office and will consider a full range of options in a response, but these would be calibrated to show U.S. resolve while avoiding escalation. The new administration is also likely to step up pressure on China to rein in North Korea, reflecting Trump’s previously stated view that Beijing has not done enough on this front, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “This was no surprise,” the official said. “The North Korean leader likes to draw attention at times like this.” The latest test comes a day after Trump held a summit meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and said he agreed to work to ensure a strong defense against North Korea’s threat, and also follows Trump’s phone call last week with Chinese President Xi Jinping. “I just want everybody to understand, and fully know, that the United States of America is behind Japan, our great ally, 100 percent,” Trump told reporters in Florida during a joint statement with Abe. He made no further comments. Abe called the launch “absolutely intolerable” and said North Korea must comply with U.N. Security Council resolutions. China is North Korea’s main ally but has been frustrated by Pyongyang’s repeated provocations, although it bristles at pressure from Washington and Seoul to curb the North and its young leader, Kim Jong Un. China’s foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday morning. Trump and his aides are likely to weigh a series of possible responses, including new U.S. sanctions to tighten financial controls, an increase in U.S. naval and air assets in and around the Korean peninsula and accelerated installation of new missile defense systems in South Korea, the administration official said. But the official said that given that the missile was believed not to have been a threatened intercontinental missile and that Pyongyang had not carried out a new nuclear explosion, any response will seek to avoid ratcheting up tensions. SHOW OF FORCE The missile was launched from an area called Panghyon in North Korea’s western region just before 8 a.m. (2300 GMT Saturday) and flew about 500 km (300 miles), the South’s Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. “Our assessment is that it is part of a show of force in response to the new U.S. administration’s hardline position against the North,” the office said in a statement. The South’s military said Seoul and Washington were analyzing the details of the launch. Yonhap News Agency said the South Korean military was assessing the launch to confirm whether it was a Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile, which has a designed range of 3,000 km (1,800 miles). The North tried to launch a Musudan eight times last year but most attempts failed. One launch that sent a missile 400 km (250 miles), more than half the distance to Japan, was considered a success by officials and experts in the South and the United States. Kim said in his New Year speech that the country was close to test-launching an ICBM and state media have said such a launch could come at any time. Kim’s comments prompted a vow of an “overwhelming” response from U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis when he traveled to South Korea earlier this month. Once fully developed, a North Korean ICBM could threaten the continental United States, which is about 9,000 km (5,500 miles) from North Korea. ICBMs have a minimum range of about 5,500 km (3,400 miles), but some are designed to travel 10,000 km (6,200 miles) or more. North Korea conducted two nuclear tests and numerous missile-related tests last year and was seen by experts and officials to be making progress in its weapons capabilities, although until Sunday no ballistic missile launch attempt had been detected since October. Its repeated missile launches have prompted Washington and Seoul to agree to deploy a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile battery in South Korea later this year, which is strongly opposed by Beijing, which worries the system’s powerful radar undermines its own security.
