In the past few years substantial evidence has been collected that points to coexistence of charge correlations with long range superconductivity in underdoped cuprate superconductors. In this talk I will review some of this evidence, then show that a charge density wave with precisely the same signatures is a natural instability of an antiferromagnetic metal, and finally derive some phenomenological consequences, with special focus on quantum oscillation experiments.
