Blackhawk Ben Down: Stocks Have Now Faded QEternity

Tyler Durden's picture


8 days after the rapturous calls of all-in 'Ben's got yer back' so buy-everything (coz retail will support you now and don't forget the beta chase?), the S&P futures have fully retraced the 40 points of S&P spikeworthiness that Ben's FOMC QEternity statement provided. Treasury yields are already notably below pre-FOMC levels, as is Oil; and the USD is higher - as Gold holds gains too but is fading.



We can only assume that with all pretense of surprise factor gone now Bernanke has shot his wad, fundamentals (earnings) do matter once again...


and where to from here... 1417.75 then 1398.25 next in ES Dec12...

How does S&P correlate with M2? There may be a lesson here...

Sell equities and buy what?...bonds?

The market's not rolling over here and neither is silver. It's much more likely we'll see a nice rally. 10 year yields have fallen pretty steep relative to the very small sell off in equities. This shows how much pressure there is for the markets to move higher.

If the sell off is to continue, that means equities will be sold in exchange for bonds, driving yields even lower. Bonds are simply priced too high and the bond bubble will support the stock market.

and he killed the Bernanke Put to get that much...

If the put is truly gone what will be the better trades when the market realizes that 'down' is once again in the playbook?

I will never ever understand why he destroyed the Bernanke put. It was serving his purposes so well. Did he shoot himeslf in the foot for a fungal infection?

Ben better up his game.  Taxmageddon is coming, he will have to act decisively and failure is not an option.

Taxmaggedon compounded by a worldwide recession and for sure a government gridlock no matter who wins. And this is already baked in,,,,,,, I haven't  listed the 10 or so possiible black or pink swans on the near horizon....................................... 

As some would say, reality is fast approaching bitchezz!!!!

I just hope they don't hire the director from that 'Innocence...' movie to film it this time. I doubt there's any money in the budget to hire better though. What? We don't have a budget? Awesome! Someone call James Cameron and get a bank from China on the phone!

This is no lie. The US killed Osama four times. I would not take a fifth-time play off the books.

"Other tools" will be hinted for further future  "accomodative measures" by a Hilsenroomer soon enough. ie. unsterilized Treasury purchases.

with ZIRP and soon to be NIRP they are already monetizing everything in the paper world.  Please, wake the fuck up.  All paper promises are burning, period.

Ben praying? too small?

Gonna change avatar again. Original post above was supposed to have arrows pointing to pic of Ben praying (or at least it looked like it). My bad.  It was too small to see his eyes closed with hands in prayer position.
