Markets Flip-Flopping As Fed Begins Chat

Tyler Durden's picture

While the talking heads are gloating over green arrows in stock-market-land this morning, the turmoiling is far from over. This morning's dismal Durable Goods data sent asset classes scrambling as gold dropped, oil popped, Bonds ripped and dipped, and stocks dipped and ripped... for now... AAPL remains -6.9% but VIX continues to see hedges unwound (-1.2 vols at 16.2%) We presume this is some hope that Taper will be tapered.



JPY not fully supporting ths latest stop run...

It is cool. you got the Crude bid and the Nikky still up 140 .. all we gotta do is take out 1767 to give Pisani a stroke. 

the solution is the rich getting richer of course .

The curious case of $1250 gold.  LMAO.  Currency death is upon us, gold and silver must be contained at all cost until the end.  This isn't a "market", this is a ponzi, and during the final leg of any ponzi, asset prices and reality become horribly mispriced.  Only a gambler would look at the current price action and be dismayed.

options expiration and end of the month

Or, State of the Union and Bernanke's last week.  Or, how about when they "found" Osama Bin Laden?  Remember what silver did that night in the overnight market?

Can't have gold rally into Il Duce's speech tonight.  It's all a fraud.  Options expiry is the excuse for a corrupt government to kill the real alternative to their satanic financial system.

It's a paint by numbers economy all right.  At least it is until the paint runs out.

Silver- $19.50

Gold, doing much better.  And people think silver isn't important to them.  It has its own dedicated barrel of monkey hammers.

Lets see Crude is betting no taper.  Gold Silver, stawks are betting taper as planned......  Do I have this right?

Oil might be catching an Obamma needs to blow something up bid.

I guess the Fed is playing "We can stay solvent longer than you guys can!"

Its amazing how the central banks, talking heads, and market participants are freaking with a small decline in 5 trading days.  I can only conclude that those in power are scared of what used to be normal market movements.  We are indeed in interesting times.

"We presume this is some hope that Taper will be tapered."

If they reverse the taper, they are admitting just how bad things continue to be. More blood in the streets will be the result. Then there will be the Yellen show signs of strength thing that is yet to come.

If Janet Felon increases the taper, the market drops. If she reverses taper, the market crashes. If she leaves it at $75B ...???

gatorengineer's picture

market has priced 5T taper, anymore or less, she drops like a stone....

papaswamp's picture

First it seemed as if stocks thought no taper and gold and bonds thought taper.... Now they seem to be reversing. Markets so diluted they have no idea what to do.... Fun to watch.

And people still say the market trades on supply and demand.

So what issue of demand impacted the oil market to make it a few dollars more expensive in a few minutes?

Oh yeah, demand for contracts on the bet that Fed printing will cause more speculator demand for oil contracts.

The only demand that exists anymore is demand for unearned money.

Oh, I wonder why gold mysteriously dropped while banks across the globe shut their front doors.

When do we find out the Fed's next move (more Tapering or QE expansion)?

TheRideNeverEnds's picture

Just keep buying e-minis, the only real question is will we close this year over 2500, trading past 2000 is a given.


I guess the other question is tomorrow after the FED sends the market 1-2% higher will we make it past 1850 before friday or will that happen next week.
