Remember When A Fed Permadove Promising Perpa-ZIRP Sent Stocks Higher?

Tyler Durden's picture





 

There was a time when bears looked on with dread as a Fed Permadove and vice chair Janet Yellen cleared her throat in advance of delivering prepared remarks, knowing well the algos would go full liftathon retard as soon as the flashing red highlights hit the screen. Well, Yellen did just that in a speech titled "Revolution and Evolution in Central Bank Communications" (link here). Some of the highlights:

  • YELLEN SAYS FED SHOULD LINK LOW-RATE OUTLOOK TO ECONOMIC GOALS
  • YELLEN FAVORS ELIMINATING CALENDAR-DATE COMMITMENT TO EASING
  • YELLEN WOULD LINK STIMULUS EXIT TO INFLATION, JOBS THRESHOLDS
  • YELLEN SAYS 2% INFLATION SHOULDN'T BE CONSIDERED A CEILING
  • YELLEN SAYS OPTIMAL POLICY FOR BALANCED APPROACH INVOLVES KEEPING ZIRP UNTIL EARLY 2016

And... nothing. In fact, worse than nothing - selloff! We have now gotten to a point where the Fed implicitly promising it may keep ZIRP until even longer than previously promised, or 2016, results in a coordinated dump.

The empty chatterbox pundits out there may say to "not fight the Fed", and the irony is that they may be right: after all why should anyone fight the Fed, when the Fed is doing a great enough job of fighting itself, for one simple reason: when you promise eternity, you can't top it (as we warned the day QEternity was announced).

This is the perfect time for an equity market decline of significant proportions.

Obama said "now might be a good time to buy some stocks" back in 2009, while he was just beginning to think about re-election, and needed to start building the illusion of a recovery and rebounding prosperity (even though it was phantom balance sheet rebuilding, vacuous and inclined to implode more quickly than it was rebuilt, as all bubbles are wont to do, along with massive deficit expansion to catch the incredible numbers of persons who would soon fall into the SNAP/EBT/SSI/etc safety net, and keep the ugly soup lines seen in 1933 out of sight and out of mind).

The Bernank & Timmmay (aka President's Working Group on Financial Markets; aka The PPT) got really busy filling the vacuum that was the reluctance of free market participants to take on the inherent risk present in the equity "markets" by indirectly backstopping such risks (see QE via POMO, TARP, TALF, Maiden Lane I through XXXVIII, mark-to-unicorn standards, relaxation of other financial restrictions, TBTF being ingrained as "state" policy, etc.).

Now, Obama's re-election is locked up, warning bells have been loudly rung about everything from the "fiscal cliff" to proclamations of equity valuations being rich (when they're actually silly, as in silly dot.com 2.0), and so if there's a big liquidation event that tanks equity markets, everyone would say "clearly anyone who was holding equities at those levels was ignoring massive risk, loud warnings, and they were being greedy/stupid/etc" because "everyone could've seen that coming" (the antithesis to "no one could've seen that coming").

Every dynamic that was put into place back in late 2009 and early 2010, to claim the equity "water is fine, so c'mon in!" is now the diametric opposite.

We had QE throughout the duration of WW 2. Probably long after actually (the brutal downsizing after WW 2 caused a NASTY recession.) I grant you there were wage and price controls then...which we do no have now. We COULD have wage and price controls now however. My guess...no, my CERTAINTY as to why that is is that the Fed wants inflation "to pay for everything." that says to me buy index funds (no one can factor in inflation risk as an individual investor) and avoid all debt and debt markets. Sure...Treasuries have surged...but as has been said here many times "one day the Fed will have a failed auction." and then you will see the massive amounts of PRICING POWER that has been created...and an affordability index" to tell the Government types "everything is going just fine."

Janet Yellen wants to do nominal-income-growth targeting (aka "failed tragically everytime it was implemented in part or full in the past, but this time will be different"), UBS' Larry Hatheway writes an essay on how 1000% inflation rate could theoretically be well tolerated (a deviation on his past essays on how small caliber firearms and canned spam are good investments), and Texas is on the verge of actually submitting a petition to secede from the U.S. (a legally valid one that would manadate a formal response from the Obama Administration/D.C.).

In other words, just another day in the life of The Bernank'd markets.

The ZIRP benefits the banks not the citizens.  The Central bank has always facilitated the banks sucking off the taxpayer tit ever since its inception, nearly 100 years and counting. Welfare recipients are raw novices compared to central bankers.

The Benanke premise that money that is essentialy "free" will be grabbed by all and spur investment is ass backward. Money must have a value placed upon it for it to be worthwhile. With ZIRP there is no incentive for the "producers" to use it because anything that is made is lost to inflation and/or profits can't return value when reinvested.

Banks produce nothing of any use - they are margin takers and the removal of margins from deposited money means less is left for the real producers. Benanke is producing deflation not fighting it. He has the brains of a smashed Crab

What she really said: The economy is so screwed up, the Fed will be forced to throw massive amounts of fiat paper at it just to keep from spiraling into a never ending dark chasm. They can't stop printing for the foreseeable 2-3 years.

Think of a patient in major cardiac arrest. The only thing keeping the patient moving is the massive amounts of electricity flowing through his body from the defibrillator. Do it too much and the electricity will kill the patient.

The markets are starting to understand that the patient might be past the point of salvation. The Feds actions speak volumes about the true state of the economy.

In other words:

We're going to keep doing what we're doing because we have no other ideas until it either starts working or blows up in our face. Either way, I'll probably have a fat Wall Street job by then, so, who cares.

Cmon guys. We knew this was their playbook. Print money and push rates low until you have a currency crisis. This has been the plan all along.

Dear Fed and Yelland, just close your doors and shut up shop, forget it.  Stay out of the market, you are a clueless bunch of academic idiots.  Thank you.

Yellen is a worn out Keynesian tramp. She's been sucking up too many Fed heads wanks.

I can no longer help but notice the similarities between QE induced 'growth' and Viagra induced boners. It is a connection that must be made.

Both are artificial and inflate the egos of the forlorn. A desperate cry for the good ol' days, if you will.

What these doleful souls fail to consider, is that what women (& the market) want, is not these artificial, pre-planned rammings, but rather the ability to effectively "fuck-tuate" in moments of spontaneity!

Yellen says we want to be like Zimbabwe and want to try to wipe our ass with USimdarllers  and  like them fail too

 

Debt ceiling, inflation ceiling.... what's the difference.... who cares... it only YOUR money .... sukkas

As I've always said:

Is the Fed + Primary Dealers going to buy up everything?

Their business model has been screwing people with fees as well as pump/dump.

Holding stocks in inventory is something a "retail investor" does, not the Primary Dealers, hoping that the stocks will go back up.

 

Anything less than 50% drop will do nothing, absolutely nothing to clean up the losers. Preferably, 80% drop associated with the collapse of at least 5 or 6 primary dealers. That would be cathartic.
