憶蓮第四場才唱出水準，一樣 0 鳩叫，暫以知名度保命，偏危
獅子合唱團： d Rock 歌唔得。改以慢但有力量的抒情歌，也是第四場才出水準。 但同一個strategy 可以玩幾場呢？ 知名度比林憶蓮低，也是0鳩叫一族，偏危
趙雷： 光良翻板 [雖然我挺喜歡他]，0鳩叫，高危

People who believed Trump would lose were unprepared for his winning.
The same people believed he would be bearish for market were unprepared for the Trump rally
Now the very same people believes market should be bullish start to ignore the destructions brought about by the Trump administration.
Max drawdown: ~ 40%
Max Drawdown duration : 12 trading days
Loss in market cap: ~ 33.5 B Euros
Retification budget: (16.2 B Euros)
Final settlement with US (~ USD 16.15 B )
Contingent liabilities in EU (unknown, probably minimal)
It took 14 months to break out of flat trading range, after it reached settlement agreement with US gov’t.
Recovery since Sep 17 2015 ( 53%)
Recovery since Nov 2016 (29%)
Moral of the story: In highly uncertain lawsuit cases, investors would stay on the sideline until liabilities are cleared. In this case, share has recovered more than the claims & liabilities from diesel engine scandal, but over half of that return comes AFTER the legal settlement.
To keep Europe’s giants in good shape, I suspect that Europe would be lenient on VW. The biggest uncertainty is now gone.
While there are potential risks arising from Trump’s protectionism actions, I do expect VW to fully recover to its pre crisis level (which had already dropped 30% from its record peak).
Hold and see.
I had long suspected Trump would win, and have been cutting longs and building shorts since October. The key was to keep a small long book and a small short book.
Another important preparation I did was to investigate whethere Trump wins would be good for market or not. It seemed he is not so bad for market afterall, calling for higher infrastructure & lower corporate taxes. His take on the Fed, however, is uncertain.
Last night, I added VIX longs. VIX has came down significantly to 16 after FBI drops accusation on Hiliary this Sunday. However, This did not make her more likely to win the presidential election than a few days ago.
The position was oversized and cut to 1/6 by the end of US closing. (oh well..)
During today’s plunge, I covered my long VIX and short HSI in the first plunge (around 11:00).
I built a sizable long in Mexico PESO , speculating that it had overshot ( comeon, 11% a day?), and keep adding in the afternoon
I repurchased some stocks I have sold before the election, adding net long exposure
I longed the HSI futures as Trump win was almost certain and HSI started rebound
the incremental FX & index positions should be settled in coming few days as market rebounds.
The fate of Deutsche bank became ever bleaker now.
