The Strange (and Worrisome) Symmetry Of Bernanke's Bull Market

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Sometimes a picture paints a thousand words. In the case of this chart, it paints an expectation of around 300 S&P points (to the downside). The strange symmetrical exponentiality of the last four years can only be marveled at in its reflection of greed and fear catalyzed by the machinations of an increasingly impotent central banking cartel. Trade accordingly.

 

 

The irony of the coincident timing of the plunge and the pending fiscal cliff decision - which as we noted here, will not be solved until the market pushes the politicians to 'compromise' - should not be lost on those who poo-poo such silly chartist ramifications...

the 808 spread is an 808 spread until it's not. history has never been exposed to this kind of grand-scale meddling more at financial straight-up mendacity. trade accordingly.

Someone mentioned an overlay of Bernanke's machinations.

I've seen a chart like that somewhere.

I had put the 280 day ROC to it before. It's not actually a steady time period, as pointed out by a similar Tyler post showing a fibonacci ratio for the time span itself. Still, it's reasonably close for a while, multi-year.

Set for 280, 290, 300 days ROC and watch the trend get linearized:

http://scharts.co/X5WxBl : this one is 280 day ROC

http://flic.kr/p/cXAU7y this is 280 day ROC looking back to 2002

More rigs doing oil than NG.  Less NG in the future to supply more demand from conversions.  Usually oil prices about 10-15 times NG.  That ratio is over 20 now.

As long as the US keeps piling on $3 trillion debt a year in spending it can make up for the debt saturated consumer.

Keeping it up and the US is Japan-like. More food stamps, section 8's, free cell phones, free education for illegals, health care and welfare.

worked for me the last 3 years. The trick is you need to put the dates at the bottom and wait till it hits one extreme to bounce the other way. It takes more than a year between them so you can't jump the gun.

this is the same chart as the 2006 2007? this is the upside down parabola, which is a mania market, but at least its honest. this is a market in which companies buy their own stock, the price of the stock goes up, increasing their wealth, so they buy some more. the problem is each time there is a little less, because no one has figured out the perpetual motion machine.

i also experimented with this chart in a gambling situation. from that experience i can tell you that the real danger to losing your bankroll is going outside the bands, either higher or lower. you have to manage the thing perfectly (in this case the fed chief) and of course the thing levels out, you take profits (go back to zero) and start all over again.

in the 2006 2007 market there was a sharp pullback followed by a new stronger rally (violated both upper and lower bands) and of course things crashed

When the FED owns all the mortgages and all the stocks and most of the treasuries does that mean they can set the price of everything and that nobody will own anything anymore?

yup - I noticed this back in 2009. I posted this recently,

2012 09 13 spy crash soon - http://flic.kr/p/daxu6H goldpricemodel

but back in 2009 I was not so hot with the graphs & spreadsheets so I used a free math site to generate this:

eFunda: dow output pts with dates, input date as YEAR e.g. 2009.3

Due to changes in the site since 2009 it may not render right but it is the top-most curve.

For the worrisome graph to be proven true, it is necessary that a primary bear market be signaled by the Dow theory.

This is precisely what is about to happen. At the current juncture, the stock market is on thin ice and a primary bear market signal may be flashed soon. If this happens, the worrisome chart is very likely to be proven right. However, it is good to remember that the stock market is still in a primary bull market, the secondary reaction notwithstanding. However, it may change soon.

Here you have the vital chart to spot the bear market signal and comments thereto:
