Brainstorming Monday - part 1

1. The biggest IPO ever is due this week - with an obscure project as Petrrobras wants 78 bil new capital for something never done before and an economically extremely risky model once the drilling was a success - which is not a given at all. Never before has been drilled so far out and so deep before and the break even is rather close to 100 Dollar per barrel with the market in the low 70's a very risky enterprise by all means. In a market rising without any real buyers - but we get an idea why it is manipulated up many secondary stock offerings piling up from Petrobras ,GM , Deutsche Bank, UBS, Credit Suisse just to name a few. Actually Santander pulled today an 28 bil offering as it sees market not ready to absorb and at the same time the M&A machines are rolling the dice for banks as well. Hundreds of billions with an average margin of 3-5 % explains why the FED is manipulating stockmarkets higher.

Sentiment has improved quite a bit over the last 3 weeks and is now in the neutral zone as we are heading at least for an interim top this week around Thursday with the Full Moon. More on that in the technical updates.
