ASX to the moon!

The Australian dollar is to the moon this morning:

Long-end bonds sold again:

Stocks to the moon as well:

Big Iron is up:

Big Gas is up:

Big Gold is up:

Big Banks are up:

Only Big Tech is down as ASIC mulls slapping the wet lettuce on BNPL:

More value rotation then. We’ve got the Fed and more vaccines this week even as the US begins to shut down and fiscal drains away.

It’s a post-risk world.
