UPDATE: Dark Russian Stock Markets, Damaged ETFs, US Housing Inflation and the Markets

By Staff Reporters

DARK : With Russia’s stock market closed, U.S. exchange-traded funds are signaling the scale of the rout facing the nation’s equity markets.  The Bank of Russia halted trading in Moscow on Monday, one of several measures unleashed in a bid to shield the nation’s economy from sweeping SWIFT and other sanctions.

ETFs: According to Bloomberg, the VanEck Russia ETF (ticker RSX) and the iShares MSCI Russia Capped ETF (ERUS) plunged 30% and 27%, which was likely a create-to-lend activity where new shares are created for short sellers to borrow and bet against. That turned the two ETFs, which primarily track Russian energy stocks, into useful price-discovery tools for traders seeking to navigate the geopolitical turmoil caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.  “ETFs are suppose to be index trackers, but when that process breaks down, they take on the role of price-discovery vehicles — and it’s impressive how accurate they have been.”

Housing: Amounted to about 4% for the 12 months ending in January. Comparatively, Zillow reported that home values had risen by nearly 20% over that same period of time, while rents had increased by nearly 15%.

Domestic Markets: Stocks were a mixed bag, but the S&P still suffered back-to-back losing months.

10-Year: 1.828%

WHAT IS “MEDICAL SENTINEL” CASE SURVEILLANCE IN PUBLIC HEALTH?

WHAT IS “MEDICAL SENTINEL” CASE SURVEILLANCE IN PUBLIC HEALTH?
***
By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA
***
SENTINEL SURVEILLANCE is a medical case observation system in which a designated group of reporting sources, hospitals and agencies agrees to report all cases of one or more notify-able conditions; such as the Corona Virus.

***
I first became interested in this concept during the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the early 1980s. In fact, it prompted me to later become a Certified Physician in Healthcare Quality [CPHQ].
***
Now recently, Deborah Leah Birx MD coordinator for the White House Corona Virus Task Force mentioned the term on the daily presidential briefings.
