Post-Thanksgiving Indigestion: Inflation And Another COVID Scares Spooking Markets (Dow Futures Down 777 Pts, US Treasury 10Y Yield Down 11 BPS, Oil Drops 7%)

Thanksgiving has come and gone. But Americans have a lot to be scared about: inflation (turkey prices were up 24% according to the Farm Bureau and a new COVID outbreak B.1.1.529 — has been identified in South Africa.

Gut-wrenching inflation is already priced in, but yet another COVID outbreak (and the possibility of more economic shutdowns, more vax mandates and more stern lectures from Anthony Fauci) are spooking markets.

Down Futures are down 777 as I write this note.

The 10-year Treasury yield is down 11.2 basis points.

And West Texas Intermediate crude prices are down 6.62%.
