It's Been A Wild Ride

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The last few years have been a wild ride in the world's equity markets. None wilder than the US equity markets. The only fly in the ointment is that we've seen this kind of 'wild ride' before, the kind of unbridled nothing-can-stop-us-now, its-all-priced-in, Central-Bank-sponsored rallies that have been the bread-and-butter of every BTFD'er since March 2009. Presented with little comment - this time it's different, we really hope...

 

 

and if that wasn't enough - here is the last six months...

 

and as we noted here recently - this is not just a price pattern, this is a valuation boost pattern too: post-QE Peak P/E appears to have hit us once again...

The new normal for equity markets will be algorithmic black boxes & central wankers/Working Groups on Financial Markets trading futures via colocated servers with each other.

I wonder how The Bernank et al. are going to make that work long run?

It's genuinely getting all iTulip-ey again, and I say this as someone who witnessed the last round of The Winners of the New World get up on a wall & take a great fall.

Bubbles!

We've got bubbles!

We've got lots and lots of bubbles...

You're right because the Bank of Japan just said after hours that they want to expand their asset purchase program by 10T yen.  The Japanese Diet has allowed only 700B to be a done deal by this Friday.  It looks like the 4X market is shrugging this off like it's a drop in the bucket.

Crazy, ain't it?

Who is going to get fucked?

I may be mistaken but relatively speaking the retirees and pensioners have done pretty fucking well over the past 50 years.  The only minor exception are the people screwed by bullshite COLAs or inflation adjustments (which replace chicken for beef when beef prices rise, and pork for chicken when chicken prices rise, and 'lips and asses' for pork when pork prices rise, etc.) keeping inflation adjusted pensions constantly out of whack with reality.  Other pensioner, I believe, have been saved by the government.  

Unless, of course, you are speaking of those retirees expecting to retire at 60 with $1,000,000 and obtain 6% returns for the rest of their lives on 30-year treasuries.  The $5K per month they expected is now 1/2 that amount, but they aren't the losers.

The people getting a good XXX-quality fucking are those born anywhere from the now through 50-years of age.  We are midway through a Japan-quality lost decade and in the early stages of a lot generation.  The only problem is 'this time it's different.'  And, I say that only with a 20th Century perspective is that we only get out of this with a World War causing industry and demand to return.  This, unfortunately, comes coupled with the death of millions of innocent young adults from around the world.

So, the youth get fucked.  Further, they have already been fucked by receiving the worst education, worst nutrition, worst civics and government, and worst use of childhood in over 100 years in the US.  Soon, I suspect we'll have kids dying in war whose live had consisted of PS3 and XBOX 360 before they'll be enlisted

I may be over-dramatizing the future, but it's bleak, both here and abroad.  I don't mean to trivialize the plight of elderly, having both parents alive and in their 80s, but they've received the best healthcare in the history of mankind, seen the most amazing advances in the history of mankind, and will probably pass on as the world declines in to chaos.  I guess this is fair play for a dad born 3 months before the crash of '29!  We're fucked - in a lot of ways.  

Just remember - The country boy will survive.  I'm just bummed i'm not one and neither are my kids.  (Pass me another Heineken - thanks.)  Those who hunt, fish, and have wood burning stoves in their living rooms while living on the continental divide will be the wealthy of the rest of the 21st Century.  No need for 4G, WiFi, stock markets, etc.

(No, I am not the Unibomber.  He was caught - remember?)

"Those who hunt, fish, and have wood burning stoves in their living rooms while living on the continental divide"

You got my attention there; I'm putting the finishing touches on a new house that just happens to be directly on the Eastern continental divide, on 3+ acres of wooded mountainside, with a wood stove in the great room. Why do you favor living on the continental divide? I never gave it much thought. All I saw was rainy summers and lots and lots of trees.

BTW, joining the Country Boy club isn't difficult. I was born in the Los Angeles area, but I moved into the Blue Ridge Mtns a long time back. Learning to hunt, fish, garden and tend a wood stove ain't rocket surgery. Plus, there's plenty of room out here and cheap land, if you don't mind living well up a steep, twisty gravel road.  The Lowe's truck backs all the way up; it takes him about 10 minutes to make the last quarter mile (I can hear his back-up beeper).

Emerson - Thanks for the added 'thumbs up.'  

Crucible - I'm very surprised that my rant while well-oiled last night got more upward pointing triangles than anything else I've written other in recent memory.  I think an American under 50 realizes that we are getting fucked.  And, I believe that every American over 50, not suffering from dementia, realizes they are getting away with murder.  It must disturb them in some ways that it's the murder of their children, grandchildren, etc.  

BTW - I am an appraiser in NYC.  I'm used to providing values on $50m+ apartment buildings for people gifting to their heirs tax free.  However, I just had the opportunity to appraise a 200+ acre parcel of land way our in western NYS.  This guy had a lake, stream, waterfall, four hunting blinds built into the woods, 4x4a, and dozens of rifles and shotguns - and he was just a sportsman.  I was in amazement that I had appraised 1/4 billion dollar apartment buildings on lot areas of under one acre, and that this acreage, above the Utica Shale and Marcellus shale, was worth less than 1/2 Mill.  Crazy.. You could move there, dig a well (with the help of some serious talent able to go down deep enough to get the gas) and live with natural resources for the next dozen generations.  Without an outside collapse, this person could have had his own well and lived free for live, banked money every month, and aided our economy.  BUT - his brilliant neighbors (all retired fireman and bankers from NYC, banned fracking in the area - fuckers.) 

Deep down I feel I know what's coming.  I've teen buying gold and silver for my family and my parents now for almost a decade, but I am 100% sure that it will be useless on Long Island.  The island has 4 days of food in reserve (at most) and few ways in-or-out.

When the shit hits the fan here - we'll have a hard time getting of the island.  I just feel my instinct will be to get off L.I. rather than try to go to COSTCO.  Who knows.  It may all hit the fan on Tuesday when these two 'storms of the century' are reported to be merging over my house.  Who knows.  

However, I know the continental divide is not an easy place to live.  However, I believe it's the easiest and best place to live should/when there is a meltdown of society.  You can live for years on natural resources.

In my mind, something is very wrong.  I've felt this way for a decade as I started buying gold at $482.50 and silver below $8.  That's great and all, but as the bible says, gold does not beget gold.  So, when the time comes, Long Island will be known as an OK place to have raised kids, but a really shitty place to have been when hell broke loose.  Wife and family stuck on staying - what can I say.?

The market cannot break the support because the market simply does NOT exist.

The support is operationally provided by the trading desks of Primary Dealers. The pyramid will simply implode under the weight of extremely high prices stocks that mutual funds are selling due to withdraws and Primary Dealers are FORCED to buy.

 

It's going to be an implosion, not an explosion.

I see your point, but it's slightly confused.  Look, Wall Street needs to take the chips of the table, did you see last Friday session?  Nice.  I traded that, cause you could see it coming.  The main dealers, the asset allocators shift money quickly into DM trades.  Most we could get is FX/option DM trades on leveraged margins, lethal I might add.  Point is they are quicker (stocks selling/buying) than us, yes, there are central bank supports, but they are not forced to buy anything. The market is over priced anyway, valuation is stretched to hell.  If you look at the Dow and S&P now, you'll see that it's now breaking tech supports, I don't trade off charts in this current market.  But look for the shift between assets (prices), and try and figure out the trade.  So we have profit taking now, dip buying then more selling - the sellers are now out weighing the buys.  Does this crash?  Maybe.  Unless we live in a fixed asset market like commie Russia used too be (not yet) then yes, the whole thing is bought by cb's and government.  At this point the private greed is still Wall Street. They blow yup again, which they will, there will be more bailouts and Fed money printing overkilling.

I agree, the ponzi will blow up when the inflation trade collapses into an all out liquidation trade and we go to year zero.  I don't know the date for that.

I would still love to know your secrets on how you measure these things, as I trade strictly by charts.  I've kind of figured out when a sell signal means buy, only because I can smell it and judge the character of the trade.  That's not a quantifiable thing, though, and is trading somewhat on instinct.  But it would sure be nice to have the backdrop of money movement to confirm.  Is it a commitment of traders deal or what? Where can I find this stuff?

C'mon, I'll be nice.  I won't tell.

The 6 mth chart makes for OK reading, but the 3 year one may as well be any old thing! 

 

hardly 'sits on top of' the one one underneath very well, and in any case the scales are quite different:

 

the rally from 900 to 1450 from 1985-1988 is 60% but

the rally from 150 to 340 from 2009 -2012 is 125%

My thesis is bullish.  A banking panic is not going to happen when banks get free money and the printing press is on full blast.  Turn that chart upside down.  The stink you smell is short panic.  They know deep down inside, that no matter what kind of idiocy they spout, the 20% upside day is more likely.

Despite what Kaminsky shouted, on what will forever be known as K-day (this is K+2), the cheap money has only just begun to flow.  The big reset that Bernanke has tried to delay is still ahead.  There can be no end to giving printed money to the banks until they are solvent.  There can be no end to giving printed money to the government until the debt is paid off.  These things will not happen without a massive surge in printing.

Like it or not, markets move on easy credit and cheap money.

The drop from two days ago doesn't appear to be following through - US Dollar falling again, Gold and markets climb back up.  And while the US Dollar falls, the Euro rises, because Europe has recovered and the depression is over.

Until this whole thing caves, my guess is you need to trend P/E divided by the dollar weighted average cost of money in the two time periods. Granted those leveraged on expensive money will dropping out on P/E news, but my guess is that unless this is the grain of sand that starts the slide the correction will not be large. The latest Ben to banks move was a crutch for the come off in P/E. Goldilocks porridge on this time scale.

Markets are fractal. One can find many overlays for any time period that have different outcomes. Pick the one you want - it doesn't mean that is what will happen, unfortunately.

 

If trading were as easy as dropping an analog over a recent market period to date, we would all be rolling in fiat.

The correlation here is not very pronounced.

it's not too hard to profit from but, beware that it's not backed by fundamentals.

Ah yes, the classic Zerohedge "overlay two charts that are similar looking", second only to the "plot two unrelated time series, and point out that they have crossed".
