Just Three Charts

Tyler Durden's picture


With today's biggest drop in stocks in over 4 months, we are reminded of three recent charts that raise considerable questions as to the path forward. From Mclellan's 1928 analog to Hussman's bubble trajectory and the extremes of bullish sentiment, this week marks a 'line in the sand' for bulls to take this to the Hendry moon or for it not to be different this time...


Mclellan's 1929 Analog...


Hussman's Bubble Trajectory...

Based on the fidelity of the recent advance to this price structure, we estimate the “finite-time singularity” of the present log-periodic bubble to occur (or to have occurred) somewhere between December 31, 2013 and January 13, 2014.



And the Market's Most Bullish Bias On Record...


Is it any wonder there are less BFTATH-ers left?

The earlier spike in gold reported on Zerohedge is getting even more spikey:

Time for a quantum leap in Schrodinger's wave to a linearly assumed single point arrival at weightier levels.
Californium life span like.

And if that were not enough, A-Rod's gonna be wishing he were back in Madonna's arms for the next year.


Oh them negative T-Bill yields.
Is it a flight to quality, shortage of collateral, both or none of the above?

Just wait until JPM and WF report before the open tomorrow morning and then give their 2014 outlooks.  Then the rush to the exits will begin in earnest.  The writing is on the wall for anyone who cares to read it.

after all how hard is it to create return, when your product is supplied for free

courtesy of zirp, it's created out of thin air, and all your customers have been brainwashed

sufficiently, to trade their precious lives for your nothing. no longer able to see the master

Perhaps we need to adopt a different perspective. For instance: Chickens are what eggs use to create other eggs.

'Dick Butkus' The most ferocious LB in NFL history and one of my childhood heroes. This bear is gonna do a Dick Butkus head-in-chest arm wrap plow-you-into the turf tackle on the bulltards before this is over. Butkus would be ejected within the first qtr. based on new rules, but he epitomized the basic 'tackle' to perfection.....He is the GOLD standard and SILVER lining of what used to be 'Pro Football'!!!

It all depends. I'm making money on my S&P500 contracts shorts; so I don't see what's wrong with today. Of course I did lose $4,000 on my Bond position when it stopped out; but no matter, my GBP shorts and maybe S&P, shorts, will cover it with change to spare.

"Spikey" is Latin for "assfuckingapproaching" usually only used in the vernacular.

Looks like Fed money-printing taper is happening/continuing come hell or high water, and earnings outlooks are setting up to be far from rosy.  This is likely the start of the sell-off everyone here has been calling for the past few years.  If you believe the Fed runs the show, they are very transparently telegraphing that the freebies are rapidly running out and anyone who cares to listen better adjust accordingly or get steamrolled again. 

The Fed and banks take it up, then run it down.  Now we go down.  This is the year.  When bonds and equities both are sells, where does all the counterfeit slosh to?  Commodities and hard assets, that's where.  This is just the start.

You can see that the red line overshoots the black one by a little bit every time, so as a total investment amateur, I'm guesstimating that the DOW(n) will hit 17k (March-April) before it crashes... :-P
