Bankrupt-Hertz Hit & Bolton-Book Headlines Hammer ‘Homegamers’, Bonds Bid

More concerns at home and abroad on a second-wave of the pandemic and mixed housing data (mortgage apps up, starts and permits disappoint) were not enough to shake the unwavering confidence that everything will be fine.

Nasdaq outperformed again (of course), Small Caps sank as Dow and S&P held the flat line for most of the day. However, markets came a little unglued around 1500ET on the Bolton book headlines… and then when the party ended in HTZ, it seems the market lost it’s momo-mojo…

Everything was awesome until the last hour:

  • 1455ET *BOLTON SAYS TRUMP ASKED CHINA’S XI FOR REELECTION HELP: NYT

  • 1514ET *HERTZ SUSPENDS PLANS TO SELL $500M SHARES ON SEC REVIEW

  • 1547ET *TRUMP SIGNS UIGHUR RIGHTS BILL IN REBUKE TO CHINA

The Dow was glued to its 50DMA…

Finally, did bankrupt HTZ abandoning their worthless share offering trigger the end of the party?
