Late-Day Dump Not Enough To Spoil S&P 500's Best Run Since Jan 2004; Up 8 Weeks-In-A-Row

Tyler Durden's picture


Despite a significant tumble into the close ($3.25bn notional sold in last 4 seconds of S&P futures); for the first time since January 2004, the S&P 500 has risen for eight straight weeks. Trannies are still leading off the debt-ceiling-debacle lows up 13.3% but this week saw the NASDAQ accelerating to 11.3% gains off those lows. Despite being pounded by GBP buyers, the USD (rescued by JPY weakness) ended the week unchanged and Treasury yields are +/-2bps on the week (30Y -1.5bps, 5Y +2bps). Despite some early week weakness, today saw commodities rising (with WTI crude jumping higher - modestly narrowing the 8-month wides in the Brent-WTI spread at $17.60). Gold and silver recovered to gains on the week keeping pace with the S&P and Dow. VIX (once again) entirely disengaged from stocks' exuberance and so did credit markets.


Ugly end to the week...


and month-end volume was huge in S&P futures...


8 green weeks in a row for the S&P...


NASDAQ is catching up to Trannies off the lows...


Commodites rose on the day with gold and silver closing the week up around 1%...and WTI recovering some early losses...


But the Brent-WTI spread has pushed to 8-month highs, but the  last 2 days saw WTI outperforming to modestly close the gap...


Credit markets didnt buy it...


And nor is VIX for now (as it seems while selling is frowned upon - hedging is not)...


It wasn't just stocks that were a mess at the close... Treasury (cash and futures disconncted quite notably)...

Paper is bid (until is isn't) and the industrial/real world continues to rot with no investment (capex) and mountains of debt.  Central planning fantasy turned dystopia.

The top 10% are doing pretty good over the last 5 or so years.   Stocks go up when potential buyers are happy and optimistic.

It can't be Christmas because the Crypto-currencies aren't in the charts. Got your trannies but no BitCoin. If that don't beat all hell.

Priced in Bitcoin, the S&P 500 fell into a black hole.

Best run since 2004.
I hope it doesn't mean that the top is 3 years and 400 points ahead...

Re:  obviously that prob wont happen unfortunately

It won't.   This is nothing but the implimentation of a two tier society.   Those with "the loot" are having the "value of their loot" protected.    Those with "the loot" spent the last 60+ years creating a system to move loot upwards via government and corporations.  Now, "the loot" is being converted to assets leaving the trash-class as perpetual debt-serfs.

The trash-class still think they have "democracy" tho, so they'll be happy fighting about RomneyCare or the "fornicating harlots" with each "election".

I was just thinking, if I was a bankster, you know, one of da boyz - and I was looking to screw retail out of their money, I would tell them there's no Taper until March when actually its going to be in December.  And then I would put a significant market top right around Thanksgiving, cuz you know, its all manipulated and the goal is to top the market when the mark isn't around to sell into it.  Then I would pyramid shorts and smash the market down into the FOMC all throughout the holiday shopping period when retail is at the mall buying i-junk or flying off to see relatives and too busy to look at their stock portfolio.


Just sayin'...
