This seems to be the site to ponder the following...assuming the stock rally off a 6-handle spx was liquidity driven, is it not accurate to say that today's markets have many new ways to play this on the short side?  If equities are being rented, not owned, are those renters content to just sell and buy bonds?  Even a quick move could mean a 150 pt drop in the spx.

Noah, are you new here?

Let' see: PD: Primary Dealer, Goldman JPM…
Treasure Island maxed out: Bond buying by the Fed is done
Uncle Timmy's…wares: US govt bonds
QE: fancy term for electronic money printing; buying us govt bonds ended, buying Mortgage Backed Securities from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac still continues
CRE reset: Reset of Commercial Real Estate loan

That should translate the slang into regular words.

Markets = fine china on table.  Fed QE funny money = table cloth on the table.  Fed = unskilled magician.  Floor = S&P 500 fair value. 

Hope this clears it all up.
