Deutsche Bank Throws In The Bullish Towel, Says "Next 5% Move Is Likely Lower"

With Morgan Stanley, JPM, BofA and even Goldman Sachs having thrown in the towel on the ongoing stock market ramp, inspired in equal part by HFT momentum strategies, central banks, and a relentless short squeeze, Deutsche Bank's equity strategist, who until now valiantly was cheerleading to bullish case, has finally waved the white flag of surrender and in an overnight note admits that "the next 5% move is likely lower."

Here's his rationale:

Dips of 5%+ from 6-month highs generally happen at least once a year, usually stay under 10% and don't tend to last long. Sell-offs usually last 4-8 weeks; rallies 16-20 weeks. Only 3 years since 1960 didn't have a 5%+ dip (1964, 1993, 1995), while many mid- to late-cycle years saw more than one dip (late 1980s and late 1990s). Of the 80 5%+ sell-offs since 1957, about 2/3rd were under 10% with an average sell-off of 7% and duration of 27 trading days. S&P troughed at 1829 on Feb 11th this year, after it last troughed at 1868 on Aug 25th, 2015 (rolling 6-month basis, trough-to-peak), giving us back-to-back 10%+ corrections. This stood in sharp contrast to 915 trading days or 3.9 yrs between the prior two corrections.

UK Establishment Loses The Mainstream Media: "Why I Am Voting To Leave The EU"

With polls indicating "Leave" leading in the EU Referendum, one well-known mainstream media personality has come out against the establishment. As The Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard explains "at its heart, the Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament. All else is noise," adding "that is why I am voting to leave the EU."

With sadness and tortured by doubts, I will cast my vote as an ordinary citizen for withdrawal from the European Union.

Let there be no illusion about the trauma of Brexit. Anybody who claims that Britain can lightly disengage after 43 years enmeshed in EU affairs is a charlatan or a dreamer, or has little contact with the realities of global finance and geopolitics.

Stripped of distractions, it comes down to an elemental choice: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council that we do not elect in any meaningful sense, and that the British people can never remove, even when it persists in error.

For some of us - and we do not take our cue from the Leave campaign - it has nothing to do with payments into the EU budget. Whatever the sum, it is economically trivial, worth unfettered access to a giant market.

We are deciding whether to be guided by a Commission with quasi-executive powers that o ...
