    Short term

    UPDATE: Recalling BABA vertical put spread initiation

    Product Manager Futures and Options / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    For the trading strategy below we never initiated at the open as the underlying price opened higher than expected. The proposed spread was offered at $0.75 instead of the closing price of $0.88. So we are abandoning the opening of this $2.5 point-wide short put spread.

    You could leg in a little later into the trade, closer to 100. You'd get better premium which the could be used to purchase a protective put...

    Morning Markets: Hallelujah chorus for Trump starts to quieten
    Equity markets in Asia are upbeat, following a rise in the Dow Jones driven by hopes of a Trump fiscal spending boost. But that optimism is mixed with concerns over how Trump's protectionist moves could hit Asia, including indirectly through measures aimed at Mexico that would hurt Asian corporations using that nation as a gateway to NAFTA markets.

    Weekly Bond Update: China in your hand
    Exaggerated early-2016 Chinese growth fears have finally diminished, and the market have entered a stage of general calm. There are now a few positive signs that could send sentiment into more positive waters, but pullback risks exist and need to be considered too.

    Jack Ma says stopping trade starts wars

    CNN
    Alibaba boss Jack Ma has a warning for those who see globalisation as a problem: When trade stops, wars can follow. "We should keep on going along the path of globalization," Ma said Friday in Hangzhou, China. "Globalization is good... when trade stops, war comes." The executive chairman of Alibaba said he hopes the anti-globalisation fervour that currently grips much of the world will ease after US elections in November. China, in particular, has been a target of heated rhetoric. "Every time there's an election, people start to criticise China. They criticise this, they criticise that," Ma told CNN's Andrew Stevens. "[But] how can you stop global trade? How can you build a wall to stop the trade?" G20 leaders are preparing to meet this weekend in Hangzhou, the city where Ma founded his e-commerce giant in 1999. Trade - and globalization - are likely to be major topics of discussion. The 52-year-old Ma believes that globalisation hasn't gone far enough, but it can be improved.
