The last update, posted just hours ago said this:
“The “Christmas Bomb” cut communication lines … which by the way is the very first objective during any battle; cut the enemy’s communications.
Matter of fact; that could be the ‘reason’. A test to see how badly communications were disrupted; how quickly they recovered.“
At time stamp 2:00 in this link, Salty Cracker shows the AT&T outage map; nearly half of the U.S. has been affected.
Next week, the markets could rally on such news. Anything can happen.
However, lack of communication means lack of commerce … for an unknown amount of time.
Downside action would seem more probable.
There’s still one more day before the open on Monday … seems like a long way away.
It’s possible by that time, participants will want the safety of bonds.
Bonds that are already sold-short, the most in history.
