S&P Futures Slide Under 1800; 50 DMA Support Breached; Taper "Gains" Gone For Most

Tyler Durden's picture




 

S&P 500 futures just crossed below 1,800 - its lowest since the FOMC's taper announcement on December 18th. The cash S&P 500 (and small cap S&P 600) have crossed below their crucial 50-day-moving average (with no sign of dip-buyers yet). This is the biggest drop through that historically critical technical support level since early October. Perhaps more notably, most of the go-go sectors that were heralded by all the talking head momo queens on mainstream media as leading the next leg of stock gains have seen their post-Taper gains gone. From Builders to Banks and Industrials, taper-gains are now a dim and distant memory.

 

Post-Taper gains collapsing across sectors...

 

and Indices...

 

S&P futures slide under 1800 back to taper levels and the furthest below the 50DMA since early October

 

and all major indices now notably in the red for the year...

When local authorities show up, it won't be to escort you To FEMA camp, since you would have failed to show up there all by yourself, when you were notified of that duty. Wherever they escort you, they plan on doing it feets at the head.

Hey, did you guys know that water flowing in a straight line will tend, over time, to form a sine wave?  Or, in stock market terms, you got to give the shorts a small reason to be excited, every now and again.

This is just a short period of USD strength, as every other CB takes their turn devaluing, before its Fischer and Yellens turn, once more.

Why are you asking? Surely you're not foolish enough to be considering buying into a failing market? The actual answer to your question is, you will not know; and neither will I. When I'm satisfied that I've ripped the market a new asshole and have a big profit on my short position then I'll take my profits; I don't care if it's the real bottom or not. Why should I?

The market will short term bottom around here at a small cyclical low period then retrace 50% maybe 61.8%  back up towards the highs at which point it will fall right out of bed on eve of 2-14 / morning of 2-15 with down pressure of the long term cycle, next stop the 1650 area.

 

At least according to my extensive analysis.

Exactly!  This is nothing.  TPTB already have the obligatory scapegoat lined up front and center in the public eye too.  Emerging markets.  With that done it's let er' rip to the downside.  When SPY volume hits ~500,000,000 or more then we might get a washout bounce on this trip down, but we're nowhere near that yet.  Easy money for the smart/brave.

"The Taper was suppose to be a sign that the economy was doing better on its own."

Yeah, somehow we were suppose to make the leap to 'believe' the economy was doing well in spite of trillion dollar deficits and trillion dollar a year QE.  Like I've said all along, go ahead and balance the budget and end QE and let's see where the economy goes.  Even just the first month of 10b less QE and the juice is gone.

No way to make it to zero QE now.  Must retrace to 85b a month and then die with our boots on as eventually hyper will kick our butts.

Sell everything is a common startle reaction. I once bought Long Bonds, on the afternoon of Black Monday 1987, when the muppets had sold everything as a reflex; "forgetting" that the money had to go somewhere. As the Stock Market continued wobbly for the week, the Bonds rallied massively. I closed down trading and went to Mexico for the entire winter on that trade.

For what it's worth, probably nothing; I don't consider the 50day moving average to be support; I never even look at it; but that's just me. Support is a price at which buying has come in "recently", (judgement comes in here as to when recently is); not a moving average. In other words, the concept "support" has an actual meaning in the vocabulary of the mass mind. But the mass mind does not operated on moving averages.

   This market does not go anywhere they do not want it to go. I am as bearish as they come but we know the game by now. They do this anytime certain barometers go off and they have been doing it for years now. Sell the markets off in order to:

1) Tame gold and silver prices when they start popping

2) Oil when it approaches 100.00-110.00 level

3) Tame bond prices

   Then they sneak the markets back up again to new highs..has not deviated at all for 4+ years now. This is a completely controlled market. When this ponzi ends it will be an unseen event and will end in 1-3 days times with markets losing 40% just like that.

You're likely right.

Look at the 10-year yield. Down nearly 30 bps since New Year's Day. Yet stocks are barely in the red.

The criminals have bought more room to the upside for equities, while taming the TNX dragon.

That should be good for S&P 1900 by Valentine's Day. Or President's Day, latest.

If I see S&P 1750 before then, I'll change my mind.

Next week is the hieght of company earnings reports, and there is also a Fed meeting in which they are likely to tighten.  Earning outlooks for 2014 have pretty much stunk, so we'll probably get a lot more of that, and now we have this "emerging market" problem.  With those factors in mind you should think carefully about where to back your truck up to.

I don't own a truck. (Yes, I know what you mean. I'm in no way diving into this mess of a "market". My 401(k) is as close as I'll ever get to doing that.)

Everything is at a 52-week or an all-time high. Yep, bargains everywhere.

To protect the stock market, I am temporarily suspending the convertibility of stocks to dollars.

got HVU? (or UVXY)?

:)

performance for HVU is dropping slightly. The constant should be 219 or so, the values today are reading in at 217, then 216.5, now 216.66:

hvu 1/11 x SPY = 219 trend line for past few months, 216 happened 2 years ago,

so by using 180.35 for SPY (current/near) this makes HVU for 8.46 which is far above the current reading of 7.52 by 12.56%.

Generally UVXY and HVU move -11x to the SPY market ETF (power, not a ratio). http://flic.kr/p/ikyjpz

I shorted natural gas late yesterday because it's up 25% in two weeks and hugely over-bought....That being said, I didn't catch the license plate number of that big truck that flattened me this morning!   UNG up another 6% today

At this point, I think they are focusing on keeping the gold price as stable as they can.  They clearly cannot control everything anymore.

The tapir ate my homework.

But here comes Janet with the shotgun, so maybe we'll be having bacon soon enough.

Actually yesterday's decline barely registered on the market dynamics, even Ben would have slept through it.
