What Happens When The Market Props Are Gone?

Phoenix Capital Research's picture

As stated in
my weekly forecast earlier today, the markets are rapidly adjusting to the fact
that QE 3 is not coming anytime too soon.

 

Indeed, the
two primary pro-money pumpers at the Fed (Goldman stooge Bill Dudley and general
Wall Street lackey Ben Bernanke) have completely changed their tunes regarding
providing additional liquidity to the markets.

 

Indeed,
Dudley who made headlines earlier this year by suggesting iPads were as
relevant to inflationary data as food and energy (no joke, he did), is now
openly stating that higher commodity prices (inflation) are hurting US
households.

 

Even
though I expect a moderate economic recovery to be sustained, the recent
disappointing data suggest that downside risks to the outlook have increased.
Let me list some of them for you:

 

·     
As I
mentioned earlier, high oil and
commodity prices have further strained many families that already had tight
budgets.

 

This is
quite an admission from a man who’s been one of the biggest proponents of
“inflation is under control” at the Fed. To give you an idea of the impact of
the above statements, Bill King, Chief Market Strategist at Ramsey King
Securities notes that stock futures entered a nosedive within minutes of
Dudley’s speech last Friday resulting in the market tanking for most of
Friday’s session.

 

This is what
happens when the markets are being propped up by nothing but Fed liquidity and
the Fed suddenly changes its tune… DOWN we go. However, judging by stocks’
performance so far, traders are still hanging on to hype and hope that the Fed
might at least hint of more easing soon.

 

On that
note, the final straw for stock bulls will come June 21-22. If the Fed doesn’t
at least HINT of more QE or something like it, then we’re in for a VERY interesting
time in the stock market.

 

Remember,
stocks tanked 16% after QE 1 ended in 2010. So far, we’re already down 6% and
QE 2 hasn’t even ended yet! If we match last year’s post-QE correction, the
S&P 500 will be at 1,144 soon after QE 2 ends. And given the numerous
disasters (economic and financial) occurring in the world today, we could
easily drop a lot further than that.
