Intraday Credit Observations
Quants are back pushing the market up on no volume in tried and true fashion. Credit panicking, as 7 shares of something or another higher means inflation is here to stay. In the meantime, mortgages are on a one way street higher, while 2s10s are enjoying the cattle gun. At the same time, Treasury vol is starting to pick up again: just what the doctor ordered for a quant manipulated market as even PT volume disappears.
So which will it be Bernanke: 401(k) down only50% form their peak or people buying that 7th vacation home again.
