As Equity Window Dressing Ends, Treasury Reality Begins

Tyler Durden's picture


No matter what you were told by the media (or your friendly 'stay fully invested' local wealth-manager), the equity market's exuberant surge of the last few days is evidently one of the clearest month-end window-dressing efforts (to desperately avoid redemptions) that we have seen recently (when put in context of the rest of the world's markets). Who is wrong? Who is right? We suspect we will see the truth (3 F's of US Fiscal Policy) shortly.

P.T. Barnum was absolutely correct:

"There is a sucker born every minute".

Credit vs equity is a boring game.  Let's take a look at the dollar's chart to know where the shoes are dropping.

Don't you mean the gold chart? All the dollar index tells you is whether it's beating the Euro to the bottom or not.

worst of both worlds.  everything flat, no real returns, and all the paper promises and promissory notes evaporate.

Got physical?  You better, because there is a very real cost for capital creation, despite what the bernank pontificates, even more so when captial and resources are mis-allocated or mal-invested.

Since the ten year has a break in the chart, and we are about to print 40B a month and then another 45B, I am going with stocks.  My thesis is bullish.  Kaminsky is still wrong.  And BTW, to the subject of my dislike for Kaminsky, he has been pulling that stunt since at least 2010.  He is full of crap.  Markets move on easy money and easy credit only.  It is the most basic principal out there.

There no principal in the market -- debt don't need no principal when it's somebody else's money anyway
And ... there ain't no principles either

Now taking guesses to see who thinks we can cross DOW 13,000 by the close. A mere 13 points and counting.

Bullard is indicating he would see the Fed buying an unsterilized 25 bil a month of treasuries rather than 40 bil a month of sterilized treasuries beginning next month. It will be interesting to see this play out. If only 25 bil a month then will that be seen as Fed tightening? It's a crazy world Bernanke has created when purchasing/monetizing 25 bil a month could be seen as tightening.

I have a trader friend who just quit the market this week.  He said if he trades anything over 15 contracts, the machines bend him over and screw him.  Everyone's quitting.

Equities are going to eat shit. Everyone thinks that the FED is going to magically buoy all these totally overblown and overpriced technology stocks. Yeah fucking right. They're going to be blown bits, just how all powerful do you guys think the FED really is?
