Russia Invades Ukraine
A couple of weeks ago, we shared Russian journalist Anatoly Karlin’s prediction of a Russian invasion of Ukraine, and suggested readers hedge in light of it by using our system to scan for optimal hedges on index-tracking ETFs such as the SPDR S&P 500 Trust (SPY) or the Invesco QQQ ETF (QQQ). https://seekingalpha.com/embed/19003
Hopefully, some of you took that opportunity to hedge. As we write this, the invasion is happening, and as Anatoly Karlin predicted, Russia has decided to go big. Since Germany had already canceled the Nord Stream 2 pipeline system, which is majority owned by Russian energy company Gazprom (OGZPY), and Russia was going to be subjected to sanctions for its Ukraine incursion anyway, it had little to lose.
As of early morning Ukraine time, airports across the country had been struck. https://seekingalpha.com/embed/19004
The tweeter above, Julia Skripka-Serry, is a Ukrainian pharmaceutical securities analyst and investor we’ve corresponded with for years. Footage of the airport pictured above being struck by a Russian cruise missile is in the tweet below. https://seekingalpha.com/embed/19005
