Market Reaction To Bernanke Speech: Disappointment

Tyler Durden's picture

Alas, the market still refuses to acknowledge that the S&P will need to drop below 1000 (and whatever the appropriate level for the RUT is) for Bernanke to greenlight QE 3 which will in turn send everything to the moon (better have those collocated algos ready and steady). Judging by the post-speech reaction, markets may finally be getting it, just as Bernanke is also getting that he is dealing with a heroin addict who will not settle with methadone (aka "extraordinary" and "extended").
