Premature Release Of Dallas Fed Data Shows Biggest Miss In 4 Months

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: Release shows a plunge in Capacity Utilization and Production to their lowest in a year, Inventories surged to 3 month highs, Shipments dropped, Capex fell and Finished Goods dropped to its lowest in two years!

It seems the Thanksgiving week has wreaked havoc with governmental timepieces. The Dallas Fed manufacturing headline data was just released 15 minutes early and has dropped back into negative territory with the largest miss in four months, due we are sure to Sandy in some way.

Sandy brings QE-FUREVAH + $45bT-bill/month unsterilized (QE3S) in Dec.    BULLS will get FUREVAH PLUS under the Christmas tree.

80 billion x infinity non?


I thought they adjusted it two months ago days after the announcement of 45 billion.

The tax selling for FB EOY is going to be brutal.  FB is a January popper.

nono, because FB is a BARGAIN at (only) 183 P/E ratio.

Amazon's P/E ratio in excess of 3,000 - WHICH IS NOT A BUBBLE - shows how high Faceberg SHOULD be, if it weren't for all these irrational bears.

i feel as if im taking crazy pills.

I picked up a nice, heavy, Silvertowne poured bar, but it fell off the back of the truck.

Got to remember the tailgate.

Move over Smoot-Hawley, the ACA act is the new excuse for economic collapse.

All sorts of things will be blamed. There will be strong "opinions" defending foolish distractions that will be painted as opposing positions. Everything other than the truth: debt money plus interest. It's so simple, almost too simple. ACA is a gift to insurance companies with an understanding that the end is near. "hope" that it is anything different is misplaced.

It's Bush's fault. Also, it is the fault of the rich, you know, anyone with 2 cars and a 3 BR, 2.5 bath or better house.

And by the way, all you greedy car and home owners, you didn't build that.

And if you want to keep all your ill gotten gains, and refuse to pay your fair share, maybe some time picking rice will help you get your priorities straight.

Afterall, government is the only thing we all belong to, so get with the program already.

Why blame Samdy? Somehow google seemed to blame the bad numbers on the fact it was a pre-release, I would go that route, if you don't get traction, try sandy.

Low volume bounce last week has a lot to prove to show this move up is for real.




Indicators still show downside ahead.

Bush had his silly excuses a well. 9/11, for example. Distract and divide. With all due respect, if you claim either party as a path to a solution, you have been taken as a fool?

Oh, I see.  I thought the 'Bush's fault' meme was well understood here at ZH, sort of like "Gold, Bitchez!"  See above, a little later after my comment.


When someone starts off a sentence with all due respect, you know they really don't mean any at all.

with all due respect...it WAS Bush's fault...and Obama's...woulda been Romney's if that corporate jerkoff had gotten in....

That's the trouble with Oligarchies.

For the bulk of the populace, times get harder.

"Bush's fault"? That's a simple, endlessly amusing catch-all for the partisan Foxtards of ZH (Righties>Unaffiliated>Liberallz) who pine for Numbnuts and his manly musk...or something

Who cares about negative news anymore? And, if debt is irrelevant, which it clearly is, then why don't we just legislate the dismantling of the federal income tax system? That would certainly be stimulating.

Oh, yeah, forgot, they don't want the money in the hands of the people. My bad.

'Early release' was handed out to the 'big guys' early last week no doubt, so they could pump n dump.

That's nonsensical.

Remember bad statistics equals good Market news, much more often than not.

And today's action is much more HFT driven than usual - and per usual is bad enough. I think that's Bullish for our parts of the Market - PMs, Energy, Manufacturing - when there is actually real non-HFT trading - much of it short covering - later in the week.

These play-acting days are annoying and draining. But they are probably necessary, in the Test Test Test scenarios everyone now requires.

Illusion wearing very thin, however - even at Zero Hedge. (Note that Clive Maund actually turned Uber-Bullish on Gold and Silver both yesterday. I believe that happens only once every 98 years, coincident with a rare kind of meteor shower or something.)
