    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

The Market's Verdict: Buy Stocks, Buy Bonds, Buy Gold

Tyler Durden's picture


Since early this morning when Germany dropped its nasty econ bomb, the US has been bid. It's not like Europe was sold, it's just that US Treasuries, US Equities, and US-denominated Gold have been on a tear (as the USD has been sold). Equity volumes remain dismal but apart from a near-vertical snap up to VWAP, AAPL has been going the opposite way all day (down!)... Or perhaps, now that Europe is closed, someone just leaked the election results given that ridonculous surge in S&P futures?


Is ES trying to snag 1429 (the 50DMA) again? or just playing catch up with Gold?


we've seen this before... vertical ramp and then parabolic dump...


and AAPL - finding comfort among the VWAPs...


Equities are all alone again in their risk-on over-zealousness...

Fiat currency has no value. Zero. Nada.  The dollar and all fiat is in a perpetual deflationary spiral due to the lack of intrinsic wealth.  This is why other assets are increasing in price.

When we talk about hyperinflation what we should really be discussing is the deflationary spiral of fiat.  Fiat has lost, is losing, and will lose.  The end game will be that everyone will be holding paper in their hands while tears stream down their faces thinking that it was possible to throw paper at goods and procure wealth.  Instead people hoarde it like brain dead rats waiting for a day to spend it at DJ 6k.

That day will never come.

Correct Mr. Hendrix, but try explaining to the average sheep what "fiat" is or what a "federal Reserve note" really is.

You know.  I fucking tell everyone here yesterday, buy.  buy it, fuck it, even buy bonds and stocks and correlated items.  Starting to wish i had remembered oil...

Point is, fuck u guys.  Also, point is, This is the last one. QE loosing steam, can't save the market after this lil tugboat peters out.  Better just hope Q4 and Q113 don't suck.  You got a few months, and this lil jimmy johnson might just flop harder than bob doles dick.  All one can do is hope the training wheels were enough, and that the market will ease into its precarious, rehypod, credit-cluster shitfuck of a bed.  Goodnight,

So last week I watched the Vid on spotting bubbles- really well done.

What makes apple not a bubble?  That really looks like the BTFD just after the peak...and just before the catastrophic plunge south.


Look at the 5 year chart.

Update: really, right here http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=AAPL+Interactive#symbol=AAPL;range=5y

I gotta be honest, it does.  Just look at BDSI. Bought that shit at 2, sold 3 80.  Came back for more @ 5, sold at 6.50,  shorted to 495, n then tried to buy it at 490... Bailed on that shit 475.  & bdsi looks and feels just like aapl.  stupidly huge bubble based on 'potential'...  Massive sharp peak, bearflg during support, and giant flop?  Who knows, but tomorrow will be a critical day for aapl.  Least I think it will.

"The dollar and all fiat is in a perpetual deflationary spiral due to the lack of intrinsic wealth.  This is why other assets are increasing in price."

Hmmm.  Seems to be a strong dichotomy from one sentence to the next.

Fiat deflates and goods inflate via price. Simple supply/demand, nevermind that fiat has zero value.

Food has value. Shelter has value.  Hard assets have value.  Fiat has no value other than percieved value.  Percieve value in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills up first.

Fiat has value - for now. That's why we are still able to trade it for real goods and services. But, as you explain, it is losing value over time as it has done for 100 years.

What I believe is coming is a final explosive collapse in all value of fiat. The slow trickle downward is one thing, it is entirely another when the rest of the accepted value evaporates overnight.

To be fair, he said the dollar has no INSTRINSIC value.  That's absolutely correct.  The actual value of the US dollar is essentially worthless.  It current holds value only because people are willing to accept it for goods and services.

Well yes, if you are talking about physical gold.  If you are talking about paper, then you should have bought already and you should be selling ahead of the upcoming bond auctions.

especially true for any equity priced in FRNs, same as it ever was.

LOL, no.  Algos fire trades off, so you don't have to manually.  It means u can sell or buy in an instant, that's pretty much it.  But algos don't handle the market complexities.  people do, for now, and a while still to come.  The only thing that has died off in trading is the pit, b/c there is no need for pit trading anymore.   The algo is just the gun, if you will.  The human is still the operator of said gun.  The gun will do what you want it to.  For now.

The Brits and other Europeans have been going all-in after their close for the past few weeks; I guess after they got the request from us to not let anything go down before the election.  They've been ramping everything after their close, including risk-on 4X pairs.

One can only sit and wonder in awe.
