BTFATH Is Back; Nasdaq At 13-Year Highs, 10Y Nears 3.00%

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As long as you ignore AAPL, today was a good day for all the bright shiny happy people who own stocks. Trannies finally snapped higher catching up to the other major indices with their best day in 6 weeks, Nasdaq closed at its highest since Nov 2000 (despite selling off for the afternoon as AAPL disappointed with pretty colored plastic stuff) with a 6-day winning streak. All sectors are now green post-Kerry's 8/36 speech with homebuilders surging from worst (-4%) to first (+2%) in the last few days. The exuberance (if not the volume) is palpable. Hedgers were once more disabused as VIX collapsed and stock indices close well above technical levels. The USD did absolutely nothing even as AUD sold off for most of the day. Treasuries were smashed higher in yield after diverging lower in yield from the open through lunch. 10Y was oddly correlated to AAPL's drop as the yield pushed up to 2.97% (and AAPL fell 2.4% by the close). Silver and Oil were hammered lower (-3.75% and 3% respectively from Friday) though we note Gold (which is down 1.9% from Friday) pushed higher from the US day session open today. All-in-all, the equity market seems convinced that Europe, China, and Japan are all good and Syria is a dud (oh and Taper - who cares!)

 

Treasuries correct higher in yield post auction and AAPL...

 

and while Nasdaq takes the honors for a new high, it was Trannies that topped today's charts...

 

FX markets were dead...

 

but Treasuries weren't...

 

and nor were commodities...

 

And AAPL disappointed - though the machines were very active...
