The only "bullish" case to be made is in the event of a currency collapse where equities can achieve huge nominal gains.... Not so the case for bonds....

Great analysis, sounds a lot like john mauldins outside the box; but, like he said higher we go until the music stops.

He's talking about the day the S&P stops going up. Not the sound of your grandma fartin in your face to wake you up at 2 in the afternoon.

If anyone is wondering why price inflation at the consumer level is not higher:

It's because most of the counterfeited dollars are blowing up asset bubbles:

1 Stock markets
2 Bond markets
3 Student loans
4 Non jumbo mortgages
5 Subprime car loans

It is truly mind buggling that it all hasn't collapsed

As National Public Radio would put it:

"It's the MAGIC of central banking"

What prices at the consumer level AREN'T inflating? Make a list of everything that's gone up in price over the last decade and another list of everything that's gone down, and see which one is longer. Then get back to us...

I've covered the bet, and now I call the hand.  Show me your cards or risk being gut-shot.

Oh wait, I thought we were playing "high stakes" poker here.

We're playing "hot potato" with uranium pebbles now.

I would say our system resembles a game of musical chairs, someone's ALWAYS left holding the bag.

If there is any positive to this current shite situation, it is that the TBTF banks ARE THE BAGHOLDERS of equities.  They are levered up again.  They have been absorbing equity put backs from Average Joe for years [Average Joe = the new Smart Money].  They have been algo buying their own "research calls/upgrades" via HFT, pushing the dead market higher.  And their credibility as reputable businesses is unquestionably gone.

These things, and more, are why The BlowHorn [CNBC] talking heads have been pimping financial stocks of late [confirmation].

So smile...and thank Ben Bernanke for bailing out this nonsense pachinko machine market we now enjoy.

stupid or criminal, neither is the stuff of leadership.

i doubt the markets about driven by belief, more supply and demand; capital is a resource for business make it cheaper and profits rise

 they will keep pumping more money, why not; cant see them saying guess what we were wrong all along? so ride the bull until the trend changes. if the end of the world comes then a pouch full of gold coins wont help much anyway.

 

looks like japan is first up maybe we can learn the lessons from their experience.
