Where's The "Buy The Dip Mentality" Today?

Tyler Durden's picture

While yesterday saw the mainstream media cock-a-hoop at the fact that we pulled 'off-the-lows' with the phrase "buy the dip mentality" parrotted prayer-like every minute of the afternoon. Overnight shenanigans saw that BTFD mentality come and then quickly go and now the US market is fading fast. USDJPY has broken below 101 and US equity markets are testing below yesterday's lows... Treasury yields are now low on the week for the long-bond; gold and silver are holding up as JPY strength is weakening the USD broadly. Meanwhile, European peripheral debt is getting monkey-hammered (worst 2 days in 8 months)...

 

 

and the other major JPY carry funded idiocy - European sovereigns - are getting carried out...

 

with the worst 2 days in 8 months...

 

Perhaps this sums it all up.. (h/t @sheparillo)

 

Though Maria B's insight yesterday was invaluable...

 

"...but in my opinion, ... I would have to believe in the buy on the dip mentality for the US and Japan

...traders say if the market there opens up [which it did before collapsing!!!], it will be a clear sign that new money is once again ready to pounce, particularly given the fact that 30% of the accounts in the US are sitting in cash. That money eventually will want to go to work, and right now, there's no other game in town besides the stock market if you are looking for any kind of return or yield."
