It appears the sugar-high from holiday celebrations is still running through president-elect Trump’s veins as his tweets took an even more narcisistic tone on this oh-so-aptly-named ‘Boxing Day’ in America.

First Trump decided to take credit for the unprecedented short-squeeze in US stock markets – and the Christmas spending numbers…

We just wonder what he will sat if/when Goldman Sachs stops rising and stocks tumble (“never gonna happen”, probably The Fed’s fault after all), but perhaps even more importantly, how does he feel about the $1.2 trillion of value he has erased from global capital markets since his election?

The drop in global debt and equity values in Q4 2016 is very reminiscent of the drop into 2015’s Fed rate hike… which did not end well…

But, the last time that global stocks and global bonds decoupled so aggressively was following the end of QE3… here’s what happened next…

But it’s probably different this time, right? China is fine (oh wait, failed auctions and liquidity crisis), Europe is fine (oh wait, Italian banks are collapsing), and the US economy is great (oh wait, automakers are shuttering plants due to credit-created excess inventory).

But Trump was not done there, he took on the arrogance of Obama, as we detailed earlier

Invincible politician and stock market savior…Let’s just hope nothing goes wrong to break that narrative in the next 4 years (or 4 weeks).
