Obama's Re-Election Party Cut Short By Biggest Market Plunge In 1 Year

Tyler Durden's picture


As the Romney bounce was removed last night, German (and European) growth is lowered, AAPL's dominance is questioned, and the 'fiscal cliff' (oh yeah that) comes into focus, is it any wonder equity markets dumped today. Depending on which index you looked at, equities fell the most in a year (or a month) with the Dow and Nasdaq closing below their 200DMA.


The day's plunge was stalled at the European close with S&P futures down 48 points from their overnight highs. Much was made of the 'off the lows' nature of the post-Europe move - but all of that bullshit was dashed as we crumbled (inverse eBay-like) on considerable volume into the close after touching VWAP.


leaving S&P 500 futures on edge...


Gold and Silver held up well on the day (+3 and 2.5% on the week) - though the latter well off its highs - as oil plunged back catching down to copper on the week.


USD strength into the European close dribbled away all afternoon - leaving it +0.25% on the week. Treasury yields leaked back a little wider into the close but remain down 5-8bps on the week.In general risk assets led the way lower overnight and into the US day session; its clear from the chart below that the European close saw a flush of selling relative to risk - which likely spurred the rebound we saw but the close seemed like hedgers fearsome of news (Greece?)



Our call yesterday that the strength did not feel like risk-on seems prescient now and the plunge into the close today suggests more than a few others used that VWAP ramp (and Boehner's speech) to reduce size more.

VIX closed at 19% - its highest in 3 months...

Charts: Bloomberg and Capital Context


Bonus Chart: Everyone's favorite AAPL... Log-scale chart - so a linear-regression means that trend was exponential... Current price action just broke below 200DMA and -2 Sigma trend line... lasttime this happened we fell 43% and 53% in the next 40 days...

If I don't get a decent liberty candidate from the Republican party in 2016, I'm going to vote for Joe Biden in Revenge again, and make the R's losers again.

I think we should drive over the Fiscal Cliff at ramming speed, and let the Bernank pick up the slack to make peoples debt payments on time.

That blog post is ridiculous, comparing Obama to Lenin. Vladimir Lenin was a genius, a true evil mastermind. Obama is really good at reading speeches off of teleprompters. That skill gives some people the illusion that he is smart, but in my opinion there is not much behind the suit and the voice. Obama isn't even a Bill Clinton, let alone a Vladimir Lenin.

I just posted a similar comment on Yahoo. Actually, they are blaming Europe and saying it's just a coincidence that Obama was reelected.

I actually believe that Europe watched the USA and when they saw the Commie in Chief reelected they knew there is no way out for them. Traditionally America crashes last and recovers first pulling the world along with us. However, we are going to go the same route as Europe and we won't be pulling their economic butts out of the fire. Wait till it works it's way through the whole economy, especially now that the worst parts of Obamacare begin kicking in.

The reality they seek is a witch hunt against the "haves", while they have their ears tickled by the PTB that the poor should rise up, not against the power establishment, but the rich, and evil money grubbers who, in normal times would be a measure by which to compare ones self (as in, I can obtain that too, with hardwork and ingenuity)... instead it will turn into redirected aggression against the wrong groups...

An election that was supposed to be about change actually could end up being an intensified dose of more of the same for investors.

In the aftermath of President Barack Obama's successful re-election bid Tuesday, market experts prepared for an accelerated push of easy Federal Reserve monetary policy.

An additional $40-50b in unsterilized Treasury purchases per month alongside the open-ended monthly MBS purchases will be sufficient  to get ES above 1500, bar any sudden fiscal cliff plunge.  Of course it is not a surprise: every economist polled expects this addition to QE3infinity to come in December.   But it will be a new level of flow for guys like Kev' to play with.

What are they going to buy?

Every bank is sending me refinance offers so they can write a new mortgage and sell it off to the Fed. The problem is the appraisers haven't been playing ball and have written every house in my neighborhood down 10% in the past six months. So even though I have the credit score, I can't refinance.

Kind of hard to make up a MBS without any actual mortgages. I am sure the banks will figure out a way somehow though.

President Obama will watch voting returns with the pastor who prayed at his 2008 inauguration and last week said that all white people go to hell when they die.

“We’ve gotten word that the Rev. Joseph Lowery, one of Barack Obama’s frontier supporters in 2008, will be at the side of the president and first lady tonight in Chicago,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Time for an off topic question if no one minds:


Does anyone else feel like the social/political atmosphere is growing significantly darker lately?


I mentioned to a few of my workmates that all markets were down today except the gun makers (earlier ZH posting) and their response was total poker faced silence.  These people are not Obama supporter types (probably would like Ronmney better if anything).  I was careful not to appear gleeful, or scared or sarcastic or anything when I mentioned it because I didn't want to color their response.  Just, "hey look at this..."


Whenever  mention some bit of evidence that things are out of whack these days no one wants to talk about it.  The conversation is always dropped.   On the internet I can get someone to tell me what an ignorant troll I am for bringing up Jim Sinclair but even there people just don't want to pick up on anything substantial.


Its like people who consider themselves educated are making "all the right moves" and they can see its not working at all for them and yet looking outside the box is *not* an option for them yet.

I always remember Republicans being treated in the press as dimwitted and probably a little racist, but in this campaign I noticed so many people treating anyone who might vote for Romney as if they were *subhuman filth*.

I tried to point out that this might be dangerous in a nation where the president can kill anyone with a drone strike and no oversight, but again, silence.

Even on "anything goes" message boards where racist rants and dead baby humor is tolerated, people seem deeply uncomfortable with any talk of substance.

I tried to start a thread on one called "Statements that made a speaker look crazy 10 years ago but are boring now" and one example was "Military drones spy on me while I BBQ!".  Again, no real interest in picking up the topic even as a joke.

Its like you can feel something simmering out there.  Still under the surface for now...

I think a lot about this too.  We aren't quite at the witch-hunt point yet, but what will happen when a nation of people who think its cool to be stupid confront another market crash and are unable to hide from the fact that they cannot have what they think is rightfully theirs?

Maybe people will be fine losing everything if their neighbours lose everything too, but what if they aren't?

Yesterday's Fourth Turning post really got to me.  It wasn't the first time I had heard of the idea by any means, but people's desire not to be bothered with reality seems palpable now.

I try to walk a fine line between interacting with people enough to get a sense of where the public conciousness is, but without making enemies (in real life at least, on the internet I take out my anger by putting sticks in various establishment eyes).

You will come to a point where you do not give a shit if they call you crazy.  

Eventually you will see that some other people sense something is wrong.  Those people you can point in the direction of knowledge and learning.

But you cannot change anyone.  Change comes from within.  (what am I a fortune cookie?)

There is going to be a whole lot of sorrow in the near future.  Try your best to prepare those who depend on you for its arrival.  

If you get bored talking to yourself IRL, come up with questions that you can inject into converstations that fuck with people's minds.

I only ever read one article on techniques used by cult-deprogrammers.  They have something I think called the "discovery method" that they use to try to help people snap out of their brainwashing.  

The idea is that you ask the member innocent sounding questions that lead them to hopefully see the contraditions between their belief system and reality on their own rather than trying to "argue them towards reason".

I must not be very good at deprogramming because I haven't saved anyone yet :)

I still remember the first time I purchased some bullion coins a few years back.  It was one of the hardest things I ever did.


And it wasnt the money either, I was a single, carefree guy with lots more cash still than bullion.  But my heart was racing as I walked out of that store with ten ounces swinging strongly in my blue-jeans pocket (nothing humourous about that image).


I was almost laughing like a mad man when I thought that if a mugger had stopped me in that moment demanding I empty my pockets, he would have snatched a wad of $20s form my left hand and had no interest in the gold in my right hand.


Its one thing to tell yourself this shit is really happening.  Its another to take that first step...

America is laughing. America is the only serious country that has virtually no taxation compared to the rest of the world. No national sales tax, no real tax on corporations, personal tax a joke, no real gas tax. The debt problem could be solved in 6 months.

"The debt problem could be solved in 6 months."


Oh really?

Lessee, $16 Trillion of debt divided by 180 days or less = $88.88 BILLION in an economy which is only generating a total of say, $41 Billion a day = FAIL

Point is, there ain't enough to tax no matter how high the rate AND IF THEY DID TRY TO TAX THEIR WAY OUT, the revenue raised would be LESS than projected and the congress and Prez would SPEND it on some kind of assinine NEW SPENDING rather than use it for debt reduction!


FAIL all around and certainly in less than 6 months.

 The corrupt reality of social control, through the 2 Party evil vote, does not provide an escape from contempt. The general weakness of all Americans is defined by the turnout. When you sustain these two pathetic party's you really do nothing to help people escape contempt. 

If you vote for a Democrat you are a delusional Communist idiot Great Wal Mart of China Suicide Squid. If you vote for a Republican you are a delusional idiot Great Wal Mart of China Suicide Squid.

I heard some idiot media whore last night, an ''African'' LMAO American, pathetic, ...say something completely false. She said some bullshit about people not voting based on the color of somebody's skin. The numbers declare, beyond a shadow of doubt, that the ''African'' LMAO American vote was totally Black. About 5% did not go for the Lilly White Magic Mormon Underwear Man. That reality played out locally all over the country for all political posts. In D.C. it was laughable. The fact is, America has not grown up, with regard to stupid ideas like race etc...''African'' LMAO Americans are still so affected by the past racist reality they suffered throughout the history of America and they voted overwhelmingly for Apollyon, the worst of two evils, because of it. This just shows how young America still is in history. This ''black vote count'' is a weakness that defines the image of contempt, which has so affected this population, and defines a portion of contempt that has not been overcome. The country, as any individual, must pay the natural price for contempt and this vote defines the prolonged nature of the beast.  

The so called ''White'' vote is really now just down to a majority White Male vote for the lesser evil of the two partys. LMAO. The last two votes for this office define this. More males voted against keeping the same evil bastard the two party company boys of the zero interest beast offered. This means that their vote numbers in a Presidential election has finnaly been overcome by electoral demographics. It also reconfirm that White Males are still delusional enough to cast their vote for the lesser evil as if there is some degree left of whatever version of hope that indicates. LMAO. 

When it comes to the youth vote, the country is dealing with a greater poverty at this point, and in the age of information, amazingly enough, the strong delusion of a free government lunch rules the belly of this beast. 

When it comes to American women, they have offered their majority vote based on personal security and thereby defined the weakness of their condition through a socialist vote, rather than independence and liberty etc...

When it comes to the immigrant vote, it's based on a hand out too, that is simple enough. 

All of this has ''changed'' the country and defined the condition and spirit of the Country. The Constitution? DEAD!!!

When you combine the ''change'' and the ''contempt'' with a criminal class that has established a borderless crime wave, that has now marked the global labor force with the Great Wal Mart of China Suicide Vampire Squid standard of care, and captured the political system to the Vote 2 Party 666 Citizens United Company Robot Voice as an equal with a human, well, history well defines the deadly affect of the soul-less nature of the beast. This time is like no other time in human history however, correction must come to a corrupt super fast borderless global market system and pathetic centralized reserve currency system that has to deal with idiot muslims and antichrist Israelis, along with super weapons that are piled into the mix from America Europe China and Russia. Throw in natural disasters, like todays 7.4 quake etc... and you get the prophetic combination of the strong delusion, ethnic and civil war, that turns global. The natural correction that plays out this time shall be massive. Trying to force the speed of, and amount of, immigration in first world countries all over the world, through a U.N. Agenda etc..., to allow for multiculturalism at a pace beyond assimilation has increased the power of singularity for the voice of contempt. The leaders of Europe have declared this plainly and the vote for socialism in the United States well reflects the falling away from the love for the Constitution's call for freedom from government tyranny which defines the high price now paid by local labor, all over the world, now subject to a not ''more'' lol perfect union, but more compromised and flawed, to the point of global market failure and geopolitical unrest. 

The falling away is at hand and the correction is going to be big and horrible. 

P.S. Mr. Down Arrow, lol, please have balls enough to make your case. I am actually interested in what you object to. LMAO.

Beyonce and Jay-Z help raise $4 million for Obama


Spending on White House dinners soars under Obama

President Obama has spent far more lavishly on White House state dinners than previous chief executives, including nearly $1 million on a 2010 dinner for Mexico's president, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.

Presidents have long used formal dinners to court foreign heads of state and to dish out fine food and wine to reward political, financial and show business celebrities and supporters.

But current and former government officials said the documents obtained by The Examiner point to an unprecedented upsurge in White House spending on such events.

The Obama extravaganza two years ago for Mexican President Felipe Calderon, which included a performance by pop star Beyonce, cost $969,793, or more than $4,700 per attendee, the documents show

Gold, corn and wheat are up. Does anything else matter? "Flyover" farming country should have voted Obama. He's our man. Cheaper fuel, higher commodity prices. Win, win. Romney wanted to drive those farms into default and buy them cheap. The farmers in the Midwest may not realize that but their biggest nightmare is not happening. Unless of course Obama goes full Stalin and confiscates the farms to feed the people as a measure of national security. That would be the biggest nightmare.
