Hilsen-Ramp Off In Credit And Bonds

Tyler Durden's picture


Bond markets were slow to react to the Hilsenramp - forced by equities it seems in the short-range - but have now reversed their gains. Credit markets stopped believing about 30 minutes ago. Are equity markets, having trod water around VWAP for a while, now ready to revert back to a world absent the WSJ reporter... or primed for a melt-up into OPEX?


Bonds were late to rally and quick to snap back to reality...


Credit markets stopped believing...


But stocks have played at VWAP (notice the last bounce was volumeless - red below average volume bars)

Does Jon Hilsenrath work for the Fed?  Bernanke and Co. fucked up.  When they had press conferences (screened questions and all) to legitimize the Fed they actually fucked up.  They showed their hand and we now know when they're going to fold.


Smart money knows that the Fed can't fold.  They're the only hedge fund propping up the perception.

The way I read it he just repeated exactly what Bernanke said.  Bernanke is trying to reassure the market that the Fed Funds rate won't be raised anytime soon (if ever), that the Fed won't be selling off their balance sheet anytime soon, but bond buying will be tapered back.

What the market should be scared about is the old stock vs flow question - will slowing/stopping the flow of purchases crater the market, or is the stock of securities more important.

I believe slowing the flow will crater the market, which seems to be what the market is indicating as well.

Look how much Crude has come down. They could probably get WTI to $85 if they are willing to let the 10yr run up towards 3%.

That is some crazy ass tradeoff and it seems they are willing to make it. It looks like the energy crowd has it right. It's all about oil.

I'm with you Fonz.  Gotta get oil down as much as possible before operations in Syria are escalated.

For Christ's sake Obama can't tie his necktie, let alone plan 5 steps ahead.

They are stumbling from situation to situation. These events are results of poor, rather than superior planning.

Ben's Q&A was a PR disaster and they're giving it a week to figure out what's going on and then they'll make a new (stupid) plan.

He kept it below 1.4 for almost 2 hours. Mission accomplished?

The world needs more Santellis to go after guys like Hilsy...and this would even help CNBC to re-gain some viewers.

Look at how that waste of screen area, business-inside-her, slagged Santelli, yesterday!


Jon Hilsenrath Just Taught Rick Santelli A Lesson About Journalism During A Rowdy Segment On CNBC


And then this!


Rick Santelli Caught Contradicting Himself About Past Inflation Warnings


Sacks of crap.


I watched both of those and The Santelli was…

Bernanke's use of Hilsy-Wilsy is like a 6th grader having a friend tell his sister to tell her friend that he thinks she's cute, or, for the more sophisticated crowd (the majorithy of ZH readers, of course!), akin to Cyrano de Bergerac whispering hints to allow Christian to woo Roxane (who promptly turns on the red light).
