Fed Pre-Monetizes 30 Year Bond To Be Reauctioned Off Tomorrow

Tyler Durden's picture


Steven Spielberg gave us Pre-Crime; Ben Bernanke gave us Pre-Monetization. Moments ago, as part of today's concluded $1.464 billion market funding POMO operation, one of the issues purchased by the Fed was the 30 year Treasury identified as CUSIP 912810QZ4.

Why is this CUSIP interesting? Because at 1:00 pm tomorrow, the US Treasury will issue $13 billion in the form of a 29 year 11 month bond reopening. The CUSIP of the issue: 912810QZ4.

Because the only thing better than monetizing the US debt is, well, pre-monetizing the US debt.

The best part: The NY Fed's market-making (literally) desk at Liberty 33 didn't even have to pass 88 MPH.

Someone please explain what this actually means...

Is this completely new (not built-in) issuance?

Are they just assuming (not very hard to) that the FED is making the purchase at this point?

The Bernank might want to pre-monetize his retirement, since he's out of his ear when his term ends next January.

You know he's leaving, because the Federal Reserve is poised to lose up to $500 billion as rates rise, leaving it INSOLVENT.

Nice work, Ben! What are you going to destroy as an encore -- civilization?

I suspect that the "when it's serious you have to lie" and the "doing God's work" phrases were both bandied about in the same top level meeting of the WFed and the banking execs when they discussed how to handle the crises/predicaments facing people.

Am I right Ben?

So in summary, it' ok to lie if you think you are doing God's work.

Sounds like the same faulty reasoning many ex spouses use when they pervert justice and betray the truth, themselves, and others.

Religion is supposed to put a break on and curb sociopathic rationales like this. It would seem ironic and hypocritical for religion to be used as a justification/rationale of sociopathic actions.

Europeans were taught the "Larry Summers school of thought" that you need to lie, lie, lie to get market confidence up.  This wisdom was probably passed by Geithner, on one of his many trips and phone calls to Europe in 2011.  That's why a great majority of our economic data is now rigged, as Obama has put Robert Rubin puppets in key places such as the Treasury, BLS etc.  No coincidence that economic data went from terrible on October 2012 (gasp, right before elections!) to wonderful shortly thereafter - a miracle!  No wonder Hilda Solis "suddenly" left the BLS to be replaced by a new shill...


Do you believe for a minute the GDP and industrial production numbers in Europe (not to mention the German "confidence" indexes, what a UMich joke!) when car sales in France and Germany now are 10% below year ago levels?  I guess the shyster "investors" JPM, GS et all do...

Who came up with this idea Jamie Dimon?  What are the chances that the WI seller covers higher? I'm guessing zero.

Let's see...printing dilutive money to buy non-existent debt for an indefinite time period to manipulate the price of money downward before the first leg of the trade causes the opposite outcome.

I think this is the synthetic equivalent of being short the USA on a when-issued basis but I have to check the math...

'inflation coming' - yup.  make few purchases, buy second hand, grow your own food, avoid contracts and loans.

starve the beast!

I've spent over seventy years in the scientific belief there is no perpetual motion machine.  Until now.

It doesn't really matter if the fed monetizes the debt or not, there will be no inflation in the U.S in the foreseeable future..Inflation expectations are based on an entirely wrong theory between money supply, liquidity, and inflation...That's why for almost four years, markets are anticipating an inflation that will not come..

The money is not out of the Bankster hands yet, so the first signs of inflatiion are the price of homes on Long Island with more than 24 bedrooms.

I need a good this the same as...

Mailing $1,000 check.

But the day before you mail it, take a copy to the bank and cash it for $1,000.

This is like the bank giving you cash today for a "promise" that you to send a check dated tomorrow  to a third person in return of a check dated 30 years from tomorrow from that third person that you give to to the bank today.

This stuff just boggles me, but after 2 years of lots of reading, I'm getting the basics of understanding this financial wheelin'-'n-dealin'. Understanding, at least, the shitrats.


What worries me, is the stuff the FED is doing that they're NOT telling us about.

Watch the bass clip, I cant rememeber what banker said it, "whenever its really bad you just have to lie".


But I really dont see the big deal here, the treasury issued the bond a month ago, so the fed just bought it before it went to auction.  I think it took a total of 3 min for some peon at the fed to call some peon at treasury and say, "hey I need to throw another few billion down the black hole of US Debt, what you have for us this week?  ok, sounds good now that I have that done I can cut out early tomorrow and take a long weekend. thanks buddy"

What happens if someone buys the full bond offering and doesn't sell it to the fed?
