S&P 500 Jumps To Best 4-Day Run In 13 Months

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Yellen proving she is as dovish as Bernanke (and a 200 pip rally in USDJPY) has supported the S&P 500 to its best 4-day swing since January 2013 (+4.4%)... make sense? Interestingly, emerging market FX has worsened notably in the last 3 days.

 

EM FX remains a problem...

 

But don't worry about that - BTFD!

 

and buy the crappiest companies!! "Most shorted" stocks are up a stunning 8% off last week's lows...

what I find interesting is that so many Americans continue to believe that the S&P or Dow have anything to do with economic reality...    when what the bankers are doing is stealing from the masses to keep stocks inflated.   freedom is slavery?

Well, the bankers AND the top 10%.   Don't forget, 30 million people are doing quite well owning 90% of the nations wealth.

$65 billion is still enough to keep this market extremely overbought for days at a time. Which it has been since last Friday.

Lotta shorts around 1850, wouldn't be surprised to see the s&p up 40 handles tomorrow.

Re:  Damn Olympics right now is a distraction to the grand theft fraudo going on right now on Wall Street.

The Olymipics is another example of a wonderful scam run by a group of VERY smart-n-savvy sociopaths.

It allows money to be funneled from "da people's government" to cronies with the Olympic Committee taking a "cut".  Doesn't matter if it's LA, Salt Lake City, Vancouver BC, where-ever.   The connected cronies get the dumbasses loot.

Life is about running scams on dumbasses.     Sports stadiums, cool war toy,   freeways for developers,  Big-AG for the "poor" farmers are all fun ways the smart-n-savvy people screw the dumbasses.    The stock market is just another scam.

When you take full control of the printing press, you can make the market do anything you want.  You have basically taken over, because you can direct an unlimited flow of money to send anything you want up or down.   The masses don't "get that".

Re:  The masses don't "get that".

Why would "the masses" care?    The bottom 70% of the country owns nothing and lives hand-to-mouth and has for generations.

The country is owned and operated for the 10%.   The 10 - 20% are the people managing the assets of the top 10%, and the 20 - 30% group is just hanging one.

That means 90 million people (roughly) have some stake in the system.   The bottom 70% (210 million) are just worthless losers.

Normal IS sociopaths screwing dumbasses.

We've spent the last 50+ years perfecting a society that rewards the behavior.  That's why 90% of the nation's wealth is owned by 10% of the population.

They are COWARDS who hide behind COMMUNISM, the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, FASCISM, and other ideological illusions. You describe, and appear to worship the DREGS of society (e.g. the 10%). If you are one of them take heed. If you are not, prepare yourself for REBELLION against them...

I don't get it.

Why would anyone here think they could see anything coming? If there is one thing to be learned is that when the big whammy hits no one will see it coming. We are just now being conditioned to ignore signals, but that doesn't mean they're going away. People "killing themslves", people resigning, Puerto Rico's bonds getting blown up, the market over priced, emerging markets getting banged, China's "accounting", etc., etc......all this shit is real.

I sold my ENTIRE retirement portfolio getting me and my family ready, I am never going to retire. This shit is going to break apart and collapse. But I don't fool myself into thinking I know when, or that anyone can reliably predict when. This is the fucking US economy. Something this big, this pervasive isn't going to die easily.

The curtains are being peeled back. Relax and watch the show.

Why?   The people who are paid to take the market seriously are part of the top 10%.  

The top 30% own everything     If the bottom 70% of the country (let's call them - the trash class) were to disappear, who would notice?

There are two completely separate economies in the US:  The top 20 or 30%, and everybody else.    The bottom hasn't mattered for generations, they are despised, worthless eaters living off the nobility that made this country great.

Re:  Every time "bad" news comes out the market rips.

You are confusing bad news vs "news that is about worthless people".

Look,  there is two completely separate nations IN the US.   The bottom 70% are completely worthless and don't matter.  "Bad news" for the trash-class has absolutly NO effect on the OTHER nation - and economy - comprised of the top 30%.

Stop confusing the US as one nation.   There the winners - the most fit of society - the trash.

I don't disagree, but no hint at tapering the taper and continuing on as scheduled is "bad" news for the top 30%. Just like when the taper announcement pushed the market higher, just like the second round of taper announcement did the same.

So I guess your argument is that the market is legitimate, unmanipulated, except only so for the top 30%?

Re:  So I guess your argument is that the market is legitimate, unmanipulated, except only so for the top 30%?

You can't have a "free market" when sociopaths are involved.

To the best of my knowledge, there are sociopaths everywhere in great numbers.  

The winners are always the smartest-n-savviest sociopaths.   Who else would win, the nice people.    So, IF somehow there was a free market someplace somewhere, the sociopaths would immediately be attracted to it SO they could manipulate it and screw some dumbasses.   

There's no such thing as a free market.

ummm...shorts create a market too.

if all of them get "stolpered out" then the very real risk of what risk even is becomes lost.

the 90's "tulip mania" was driven by massive volumes and a certainty of "incredulity." (no earnings...no even expectations of earnings. a "burn rate.") that is clearly not true this time.

in my opinion we're perfectly set up for a "two bulls colliding" moment where either treasuries are right (biggest bull market in history...heavily shorted) or equities are right (one of the biggest market runs in history but based on very little if not ZERO economic fundamentals.)

if you're having a had time talking the dollar down vis a vis the yen then I do agree...certainly something is heading for more than just an air pocket in the equity space.

To Whom it May Concern:

 

People fail to realize that the the markets are no longer free. The FED/GOV will not allow them to EVER FALL/FAIL. They will buy a trillion worth of stock every day to keep the market from suffering a catastrophic correction. There will be little corrections here and there but nothing of consequence.
