Overflow order from big dealers, 14x avg USD market order at open - biz is in HK, Sing, India.
The numbers to watch are 0.5x, 1x (normal), 10x, 100x. Once it passes third base it always score fourth. Never failed. Don't short USD here. Do it at 100x - will update in two-three weeks or so. Watch Citadel blow up. I suspect (east) european Convertible in the books. This will be historical moment when Fed backstops the entire European and hedgefunds universe, in addition to de-facto eventual back of FHLB this week/next. Legendary deleveraging here.
Edit #1: Still on currency, based on this article I think I have nailed pretty solid where FXA bottom is going to be, which I believe about $12 - 15.
