Deer Emerges As Stocks Slump Half Way To Reality

Tyler Durden's picture


The crowded liquidity-fueled pump-fest of the last few months is beginning to unwind. Look around at where the damage occurred. Equities and Credit were smashed; the USD is practically unchanged; Treasuries very marginally bid; commodities sideways (aside from Oil's oscillations).

But, But, But I'm Hedged...


The close did see some of the other asset classes start to catch down to equity and credit but based on our models, we see the S&P 500 having retraced about half its short-term mispricing relative to Treasuries. All the over-pumped sectors were the biggest laggards - Financials, Industrials, Materials, and Tech - but from the 11/25/11 beginning of the global coordinated central bank pump, there is still plenty of downside for stocks. Our greatest concern now is if high-yield bond ETFs are unwound (where so much liquidity is concentrated) and forces cash bond liquidations - there is simply no depth to soak up that move and the entire secondary market will reprice (and shut the primary market - which has lived on flows for so long).


So what happened...and why - well maybe this chart will help...

Gold is now almost 3% ahead of stocks on the year as the long-bond is catching up fast on the S&P 500...


but stocks have plenty of froeth from the beginning of the globally coordinated liquidity flush from 11/25/11...


the S&P 500 has now retraced around half of its pre-QE3 dislocation...


and equities are also catching down to high-yield credit's warning signs...but the reflexivity will begin in this pair shorly...


and for a sense of the relative calmness in non-equity/credit markets today... with ETFs all moving as one big liquidity block (left) but FX, Treasuries, and commodities were unimpressed having already made their moves... (right)


HYG crossed below its 200DMA and equalled its largest drop in over six weeks (with serious volume)...


and the last few days shows that when the selling begins, it will squeeze the cash market (the lower pane) just as the wash of liquidity drives the cash market via the ETF on the way up in HYG... Critically, we saw a big bond dump at the open today to catch down to HYG's 'price' and then HYG kept going lower all day to leave yet another big gap...


Evidently, as we have said again and again, the surplus of liquidity has been soaked up in the synthetic instruments (ETFs for instance). It's all fun and games on the way up - just ask Bruno Iksil - but when the unwinds begin and the 'real' market can't soak up that risk (consider dealer inventories!!) then price adjustments are rapid and gappy - everywhere...


Finally, the long-term CONTEXT view of where we stand...


We would imagine that every repo desk margin call is currently going directly to voicemail...


Charts: Bloomberg and Capital Context


Bonus Chart: AAPL's last week...VWAP finally snapped


AAPL Shareholder's perspective...


Facebook's 12% rise (coincidentally on record daily volume and perfectly ending at the big gap-down day's VWAP close...not sure this one holds up here) and for one more crazy coincidence (which by now we hope you do not believe in) - today's closing VWAP of $21.62 is EXACTLY the same as the aggregate VWAP from the 10/24 high volume ramp til today...

and Facebook putholders...

At least housing is roaring back ("The Joes" said so; LaVorgna & Weisenthal):


WSJ: Housing Agency (that insures 84% of New Mortgages) Close to Exhausting Reserves

The Federal Housing Administration is expected to report later this week that it could exhaust its reserves because of rising mortgage delinquencies, according to people familiar with the matter. That could result in the agency needing to draw on taxpayer funding for the first time in its 78-year history.

From the WSJ:

"Overall, the FHA insured nearly 739,000 loans that were 90 days or more past due or in foreclosure at the end of September, an increase of more than 100,000 loans from one year ago. That represents around 9.6% of its $1.08 trillion in mortgages guarantees.


The FHA's annual audit estimates how much money the agency would need to pay off all claims on projected losses, against how much it has in reserves. Last year, that buffer stood at $1.2 billion, representing around 0.12% of its loan guarantees. Federal law requires the agency to stay above a 2% level, which it breached three years ago.


The decision over whether the FHA will need money from Treasury won't be made until next February, when the White House typically releases its annual budget. Because the FHA has what is known as "permanent and indefinite" budget authority, it wouldn't need to ask Congress for funds;

[...wait for it...] would automatically receive money from the U.S. Treasury."



Whew!!! Thank God that the U.S. Treasury is so flush!!!

The market may face serious problems during the following months. The fall registarda since October has been significant. The market is currently oversold. It is very likely that tomorrow or the next day we see a rebound on Wall Street. However, if the market is unable to reach a new high, we will see a major setback. Will be more than a correction. I think we should be very careful and remember that you can always make money in the market. No matter if the market goes up or down. Only matter which side we say.

I agree as well, loathe as I am to say anything about gold going down, past history has shown then a crash hits, there's a liquidity-ification phase as people sell anything of value (e.g. gold) to cover margins and whatnot. Just remember that we saw a 10% drop in the first two weeks of September '08 during the last crisis, and a 20% increase off that bottom a month later.

Gold and silver miners got crushed today.  GDX down 4.63% and GDXJ down 4.95% and SLW down 6.69%.

If gold and silver are headed higher, the Fed's strategy seems to be is to attack the miners - their product will follow them down.

Why, oh why do people buy gold miners?

From Hugh Hendry: "I am long gold and I am short gold mining equities. There is no rationale for owning gold mining equities. It is as close as you get to insanity. The risk premium goes up when the gold price goes up. Societies are more envious of your gold at $3000 than at $300. And there is no valuation argument that protects you against the risk of confiscation. And if you are bullish gold why don’t you buy gold ETFs, gold futures or gold bullion.”"

And if you are bullish gold why don’t you buy gold ETFs, gold futures or gold bullion.

I'm surprised to see him recommend gold ETFs and futures.

I'm starting to believe confiscation isn't an issue. People would just rush into stones or industrial metals, maybe copper, or rare metals like rhodium or osmium (though very high premiums ruin any store of value). In other words, people are more aware of the FED now, and they're not going to be forced into dollars. I've been stocking up copper pennies and nickles because they seem like the logical choice should they try confiscation, and there is the added benefit in that they offer better inflation protection than their paper counterparts.

While gold went from $350 to $1,000 how did miners do and how many were nationalized?

There is more risk from hedge funds doing just what Hugh Hendry says than there is of nationalization.   The mining sector is very small so any big money shorting it crushes it, cutting off access to capital for explorers and juniors.  This makes them easier to prey for the majors.  There's a bit of history and litigation regarding the expansion of ABX.  It was argued that ABX was a big player in suppressing gold prices as well, selling forward.

Crushing the explorers and juniors who create value, so their assets can be looted is nothing to be proud of.  I look forward to day the Hugh Hendry's of the world are forced to cover in an exploding, tight market.

I own the miners.  The miners will have their day in the sun. There will be a period where they will skyrocket once reality sets in that gold is heading much higher. I will head for the exits then. Gold at $1700 plus and oil down here means it's less costly to get it out of the ground. Today was margin calls in other places forcing people to sell these good companies.

If you can't tell by my staunch defense how bad these miners suck thats your problem.

Why do people buy gold miners? 

Because they believe.

Because they think they can know the fundamentals

Because they think that fundamentals always matter to the markets.

Because they think it's always a market, when in fact, it's sometimes a market, an auction for price discovery, but at other times it's just a policy tool, and still others, it's just a scam.

It's not a market, it's a method of control to turn a human being into a battery that willingly powers a reality that doesn't exist. 

People buy miners because they confuse reality with what they are told is reality, basically the Matrix come to life.

The other problem with mining companies is that so many of them are also playing the commodities themselves, either directly or indirectly (through their debt financing which can be largely based on projections of cash flows).  In other words you as a shareholder are sort of playing the market twice, with little transparency. 


I like it better when it clinks, or at least clacks in its plastic nicely.

I just got a look at the retail EDI report for the first half of November from a major US retailer. Down 40% from last year.

The buyer was laughing throughout the entire meeting. The companies listed on the report keep putting out releases claiming comp increases and greater sales. He said they must be selling to Mars or smething because the product didn't move at his stores.

McDonald's had a decrease in sales during the month of the Monopoly promotion, generally their best month of the year. If that doesn't tell you retail is screwed, nothing will.

Black Friday is expected to be huge. It may break records again, but it will be the only day of shopping this year. Expect full out $2 towel riots and most likely a number of deaths. Blacks have already planned mass flash mobs in white shopping malls and suburban stores. The goal is to prevent whitey from buying anything. All the stuff belongs to blacks and they mean to show it.

Not a lie - I walked out my door last night around midnight. There was a big doe on my front lawn. She was beautiful. My dog went after it and it came barelling back at me after crossing the street. I had my high powered flashlight in hand and beamed it right in the face. It veered away from me at the last second. After going back inside, I thought to myself, might be a good day to short AAPL tomorrow!

If gold doesn't collapse with it, that would put the gold/dow ratio around historical norms. I think what will happen eventually is dow 7800, gold 2500. Stocks have a lot working against them. They're pricing in inflation when we haven't experienced the appropriate deflation yet (b/c of the FED). Now Obama is after capital gain taxes, which pretty much destroys the value of a corporation. All roads lead to gold (though, if you can't barter it, the collectible tax rate even kills that 'investment').

Lockheed options spike before CEO news unexplained so far WASHINGTON/CHICAGO | Wed Nov 14, 2012 2:17pm EST  

WASHINGTON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) said on Wednesday that it could not explain the huge jump in trading in its stock options last week, hours ahead of the surprising news that its incoming chief executive had resigned after admitting to an ethics breach.

It was the highest put volume in the defense contractor in more than two years, data from Livevol, another analytics firm, showed. "This is either a one-in-a-thousand random event or suspicious options trading ahead of the announcement," said Ophir Gottlieb, managing director of Livevol. (i would say 1 in a million)

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which looks into unusual stock and options activity, declined to comment.

I will comment, I think this might be insider trading, but thats just me.

I agree with Yen.  The market is hedged on DXY bids, the futures (equities) risk/on off before open will be more reality based (just risk off) rather than the priced in trade, which has been occurring for months now, more so after Sandy. 

For any major equity bounce the DXY is got to be trending under 80, at least 75 or lower.

Lets go...preemptive warm-up.  Iran is next.  Obama's green light any-day now.

JERUSALEM (AFP)--Israel's security cabinet voted Wednesday to allow a call up of army reservists "according to need" as the Jewish state launched a campaign against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. In a meeting "it was decided ... to permit the IDF (army), according to need and with the approval of the defence minister, to call up reservists," a cabinet statement said. An army spokesman told AFP that some notices had been issued to specific personnel but there was no general call up. Israeli aircraft earlier killed top Hamas military commander Ahmed Jaabari and his bodyguard, prompting outrage from militants who said the Jewish state had opened "the gates of hell." In more than 20 other air strikes which followed, at least another six people were killed and 65 injured, Gaza medics said. Israel warned this was only the start of an operation targeting Palestinian militant groups in Gaza that comes as the Jewish state prepares for general elections in January.

The following are a summary of hunting laws and regulations for big game hunters. For complete reference consult the New York State Environmental Conservation Law and Volume 6 of the Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York.

Hunting Hours
Click Here to Report!

Big game hunting hours are sunrise to sunset. Sunday hunting is allowed in all areas of New York. There are some local exceptions. Check the area that you hunt carefully. For hunting on state parks, confirm regulations with the park before hunting.

Legally Antlered Deer

A legally antlered deer must have at least one antler that is three inches or longer measured from the base of the burr. Special regulations apply in the Antler Restriction area.

"Early" and "Late" Seasons for Deer and Bear

When you see the term "early" muzzleloader or archery season, it means before the regular deer season for that particular zone. "Late" means after the regular deer season for that zone.

Rifle, Shotgun and Bow Areas

The portions of New York where rifles, shotguns and bows may be used during the regular firearms seasons are set in law by the state legislature. See Rifle, Shotgun and Bow Areas for a map of where various hunting implements may be used in the state.

'Tis the season FiSHeS!

Phil D. revealed as "Ilene." (We already knew he was also Mensa Stevie.)

And all of a sudden, out of nowhere!, seemingly hundreds of stories on about serious and vicious hacking attacks - extraordinarily similar in their description to those some of us right here have been experiencing - against the closed and closely-guarded websties of "up to a thousand" hedge funds - which must be close to the entire Universe of hedge funds - around the world.

Once again, Poopsies: You may have annoyed "The Deer."

But intelligent Deer - and Muppets - and Sheeple - and Peasants - and Pretty Much Anybody Outside of an Official PPT - knows this Scenario is of a whole other order than the Scenario of 2008.

That time, there were at least some excuses, particularly as the techniques of the HFTs were not as well-known by the Cyberpolicepeople.

This time, it is purely a MEDIA event. Not a political event. Not a financial event. Not an economic event.

It's a cynical, contrived, banal, silly, and malicious Media event, which could be stopped on a dime any ole time anyone has the cojones and the gumption and the simple human decency to stop it.

If it is NOT stopped, I can assure you that The Deer - and they are legion - will take their revenge one way or another. Taking over a cable channel or two, for example. Or maybe even a brokerage or two.

No! Not possible, you say? Well, just think about what happened in the UK not too many months ago, involving a certain frail and elderly mogul.

Or what happened just a few weeks ago to a pint-size and randy mogul in Southern Europe.

How beloved, really, if they continue to support an unsupportable agenda, are those who employ YOU - or at least quite a few of you?

You may think you're on correct side.

Then, again, you could just be very surprised.
