I better do not mess with Putin (one of the most powerful man in the world) but really someone bought March 22,000 puts on $RSX at 0.35 on 1/30..just incredible how options can tell the story
Lets be a little financial educated.We know US will not get involve,we know we do not have Ukraine companies. Financial Globalization is what we forget about. There are other facts like government debt owed to foreign creditors,lending exposure for some major banks,imports will not be paid etc etc
At this point we do not know anything, we do not know for certain which banks are the most expose, who has buy government debt, we do not know how much in imports Ukraine will not paid. I think markets will analyse how much damage this will cost to the world economy..
Who cares as long as all the companies we invest in are not located in Ukraine... now conflict in the USA itself, or China,,,, timber,,,
Although you could be right,,, markets,,, and big money players may be looking for a black swan event excuse to tank the markets,,, and cash in their gold positions as they rise, if they are loaded up yet......
Buy GOLD. Come on do you think the US will get involved in the UKRAINE. Its Russia. Its like saying Russians would get involved if we went into Mexico. They wont. Nor will we. Did we get involved in Georgia when Russia invaded? Of course not. Like or not conflicts are good for the Industrial Military complex and this is not one we have to worry about. Obama will not get involved nor should we.
Any pull back is a buying opportunity and the market did not react to Ukraine. It was end of the month rebalancing of the Russell and Nasdaq ETFs
