WTF Chart Of The Day: Fun-Durr-Mentals Edition

Tyler Durden's picture

Money on the sidelines? EM fixed? Expectations of a terrible jobs number tapering the taper? One thing we do know for absolute certain - this ramp in stocks has nothing whatsoever to do with fun-durr-mentals... as USDJPY 102 takes the S&P back to unch on the Taper and above its 100DMA.


USDJPY 102.000 Tagged...


It seems the so-called "market" liked the guilty verdict on Martoma?

Though we suspect the machines are desparate to get the S&P back to unchanged from the taper...


and above the 100DMA...

Looking like the market is "back testing" the major trend line it broke below on Monday so this is about the top of the bounce.

Which means its about to hit a wicked down draft tomorrow!

Both charts thanks to Daneric's blog!

I think it is more likely the bottom of this pullback that we spring off of on our way to close out FEB over 1850.


The only real question is will we pass 1900 by March or will it take till April to break that level because new highs are a given.  


Hopefully you bought the dip and took a picture of the ES trading 1750 because you will never see that again.

I thought that dip was a trend developing.  Maybe the dead cat bounce?  My best bud told me he bought the dip.  I told him I thought he was loco....we'll see, but he's sure looking good today!

The dip buyers seem to winning, almost 5 years and counting.

But what happens when they announce there's no more deliverable gold?

But what happens when they announce there's no more deliverable gold?


Why would anyone announce that? Even if it were true, and it likely is, why would you expect them to make any sort of announcement about it?

Not impressive at all. It just doesn't take much trading volume to move markets anymore.

Which came first, the Japanese chicken or the S&P egg?

I mean, seriously - I don't know. I would like to read a cogent layman's explanation on the cause and effect thing here.

Maybe the plan is to just write it off.

Oh yes, it will be written off, but only for those in the big club. The rest of us will be held as collateral.

MyRa is rhe Federal way to off-load it's treasuries.

All Obama supporters need to put all their money into the MyRa because their messiah said so.

So essentially one penny added 20 points to the S&P?

Makes sense.

If this is an example of Japanese QE impacting our market then I've got to wonder how large an impact US QE has on other markets, and how far it'll fall when it's all gone. Doesn't matter which one hits the ground first either.
