Dow & S&P Close At Record Highs As 10Y Approaches 3%

Tyler Durden's picture


VIX closed at its lowest in a month as stocks pushed on higher to new record-er highs (and Twitter hit $70). The Nasdaq underperformed today (after yesterday's outpeformance) as the Dow, S&P, and Russell all closed around 0.4% higher (and Twitter added 8.2%). Treasury bond yields rose notably all day with the 10Y at its 2nd highest closing yield of the year +5.4bps to 2.98% today (but Twitter is almost a double off its lows in 2 weeks). Commodities drifted higher all day with Gold back over $1200 (and that so-called fat finger in copper leaving it up large still on the day). The USD ended unch with slight weakness in JPY. From the Taper lows, the S&P is up 3.7% (but Twitter is up 30% in that period).

Stocks rose today - as good news seems like good news (if you choose to ignore the massive seasonal adjustments)...


In case you missed it...


Bonds sold off notably - pressing 10Y up near the high yields of the year...


Commodities pushed higher with Copper's fat finger not retracing much...

I believe the term is "organic" and "moving forward". Yeah, moving forward to the BIG DEFAULT. Who knows, maybe they'll actually lose control of the 10-Year... hahaha, who am I kidding, that thing is probably as rigged as LIBOR.

Merry Christmas ZHer's... thank you.  I'd lose my mind thinking I was the only one who thought this shit was fucked up.


Now it's off to see my cousin's newest KIZZ back tattoo and hear about his 3rd bankruptcy and his 4th DUI.

  After the ridiculous week the markets have had, I thought it fitting for a picture of the "Deer". I hope you enjoy the festive nature of it. Merry Christmas Bitchez.

I don't know how many of us were in the markets (LOL) ca. 1998- 2001, but this whole ride right now reminds me exactly of the ride.

I remember thinking I was invincible, how everything I did made money, how easy it was.

And, this is just how easy it all is:

Reminds me of Febuary 1995 when everyone was claiming; "DOW 4500! impossible! How could the markets be so over-priced?" By Dec 1999 when I though even a fool could see the market was a bubble, those same people could only dream of continuing riches.

Most people get the market wrong,

You are more likly to be in the "most people" camp.

Markets have to be that way (this should be obviouse but for some reason isn't).

I probably am most people.

I was born with nothing, have few expectations of the ending being much different.

Merry Christmas :)

Any thoughts on what might precipitate a January sell off?

they should just have half day trading sessions more often.


u get extremely low volume, and these criminals always r able to pump the market up 5-7 s&p points every time we have a half day session, and i know thats not so many pts considering the current index level, but it all adds up.


its like they took away the sell button, and u r only allowed to buy equities for now, no selling until the fed allows, and when that happens, everyone will be trying to get out at once.


its going to be fun to watch whenever it happens.


merry xmas bitchez
