Bond Market Tremors Get Louder

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It appears the cracks in the armor of the central bankers created by an over-enthusiastic BoJ's impact on the quadrillion JPY JGB markets are now rippling through the global market place. While every talking head that dares to speak has proclaimed the weakness in bonds as nirvana for equity bulls, it seems they were wrong, very wrong. As bond market tremors ignite everywhere, so equity markets come a little unglued at the prospect that the Fed, ECB, BoJ, and PBOC may not be so omnipotent after all...

Keeping an eye on the following levels:

Copper futures:  3

Crude futures:  85

Russell futures:  900

10 year futures:  125

Lots of stuff breaking if any of these have sustained moves below these levels.  The 10 year is particularly interesting.

Now that we've got the all-clear on Europe and the debt problem in the US is resolved, we know that they can really start to crank rates and bring the bond market down.

That's why the Fed and the ECB are shaking in their boots; the bond market is looking that good.

According to the Fox Business page, the sell off is due to markets worrying over how long 'easing' can continue. That is the red flag thrown at the Fed, who I am sure will respond with even more easing, because at this point more is even better. Bernanke is not going to spend his few short months left in embarassment. POMO to the max. That's why I think repair is in order, although I maybe wrong.

First of all, the talk about running out of Treasuries to buy is silly.  The deficit will be 700-800B for this FY, and higher next year because the 1 time Fannie/Freddie amount won't be there, and the Fed doesn't buy $ 1 Trillion/year of Treasuries.  It buys about 550B of Treasuries (the rest MBS).

So there is plenty of Treasuries to buy.  As for MBS, the Fed can just pay the banks more for each one that is marked to fantasy regardless.  The banks won't object.

Agreed. Which is why I've been exploring the possibility of starting a colony or two on my land. I would have to keep the bees out of site from passersby, sort of secret their hive activity away in a heavily wooded area. I had a conversation with Laws about bee keeping. He was right but I'm stubborn and have not fully admitted it yet.

He said it would be either impossible or very expensive to find the bees needed to start a colony, and that their first winter could deccimate the entire hive. I was going to hit up the Amish that I buy meats and baked goods from because they keep bees behind their houses. I think it will be one of those moments when they pretend not to speak English again.

I'm laughing my ass off, but it's sad.  When the SHTF I'll be like Woody Harrelson in Kingpin, drinking the bull's milk.

I used to buy honey at the Teaneck farmer's market, it was sold by an Amish but he bought it from an apiary called Aucker's Apiary in Penn.  I took my wife there one December morning for fun, and met the beekeeper and his wife who were very warm.

They said the industry was in turmoil because of a pesticide made by Bayer in Germany that had such a high nicotine content that the bee colonies were dying off at a higher frequency than they could reproduce.  Apparently, they were suffering nicotine withdrawal.  But, the beekeepers knew it was that and bemoaned their powerlessness to avert it.

That was about 8 years ago.  I doubt the situation has improved.

The few Bee-keepers I know actually get paid to remove unwanted hives from houses.

That is how they replenish their stock.

It's not that hard [to start], but it's not all that easy either [to maintain]... There's a lot of shit to learn about diseases & funguses that can kill off a hive even if you get one going... Sloane, you're also right about the weather... This was a pretty harsh winter & it really did a number on the bees... You can tell mostly by the cloverfield activity [or lack thereof]...

~~~

If you can't make it with honeybees, then just toss some untreated lumber scraps around [or build a useless frame] & you might some borer bees [which would not produce honey, but get the pollination trick done]...

Things that attract butterflies work as well if you don't mind the caterpillars...

No lie, Francis. Its going to be tough first time around. We already have borer bees that we stack excess lumber around to nest them. We're also stripped bark off trees and split the wood and tossed it on their pile. I don't think people understand the devastation a decrease in the current bee population is going to cost us. We have flowers planted that attract butterflies but so far there are very few of those around.

some humble suggestions:

if you're that passionate about the bees, you should follow your intuition and make at least an attempt to give them a good home, no matter what the obstacles are.

you might want to consider a top-bar hive  to start (sorry for the wiki, but in this case, it's a good entry point)  lower cost in time & $, gentler learning curve, more room to experiment.   you can make a simple one out of a 55 gallon pickle barrel cut in half.  (DIY plans are all over the net, just remember the All Seeing Eye Is Watching!)  

and if i were you, i would personally hit up the amish for a starter kit...honesty & humility works wonders.   i've found that the passion of beekeeping transcends any cultural barriers in the end.

if you get em started soon, you give them a fighting chance to make enough honey before winter.    and you could always build a small heathouse for them to keep them warm if necessary.

there's one parasite you have to be wary of more than anything : the dreaded Varroa Destructor.   vampires they are, and will decimate a hive if you allow them the time to hit the steep 2nd derivative in their growth curve (sound familiar?).   however, a simple dusting of powdered sugar and a spray of some mint/thyme/hops tea every now and again keeps the fuckers in check pretty good.

good luck mate.
