The Global Death Cross Just Got "Deathier"

Tyler Durden's picture

"X" continues to mark the spot of the death of global investor rationality...


Well that didn't take long... note the brief hope-fueled bump in world GDP that has now crumbled back to record lows for hopes in 2014...


Still it appears stocks believe that 2015 or 2016 or 2017 will be awesome...

Reversion to the mean is going to be a biotch.

It'll get better.  Things are looking up.  Got an outclassed amateur unicorn in the white house too......

Don't worry, it was run up with printed money.  The losses will be paper too.

Death cross definition:

You could probably cook the data of dozens of charts to get a bogus death cross when overlaid one on another.  Who cares?

The music is still playing, but the fat lady has left the building. TPTB have gone too far, we are in the land where nothing is funny.

I agree, this "death cross" is meaningless the 2 lines could be graphed from any start point. It has no relevance. The other 2 graphs have more correlation and are ok

Please do not disgrace unicorns by that comparison.  Unicorns are beautiful, white, Noble, Fair and Honest beasts whereas the Head Ape in Charge is none of the above.

I'm no Keynesian economist or CFP, but "A return to steady-state (net-zero) GDP is... double-plus good for Valuations"?

And just like the real Twighlight Zone II, this ends with your head being cut off in a tragic, unforseen "accident."

That must mean the S&P is heading to 2K. Onwards we go.

It just gets to the point where you O.O Twilight Zone and beyond.

"Awesome" is the word. Stocks are now quoted in the same fashion they were quoted in the Albanian Ponzi Scheme. With borrowed FED cash.

To be honest constant 2.5% growth will be enough to keep these markets up. The problem is once everyone realizes all the growth is coming from higher prices rather than any increased production. Scarcity is the new growth medium.

Is it possible to have inifnite growth with finite resources?

"Death Cross" - yea, that describes the spot years ago where my annual merit raise fell below my increasing benefits costs .. Net effect, I take home less in earnings each year. Good thing food and energy cost are not increasing each year cause the govt says there is no inflation.

Is there treasure buried under that 'X'?

The death cross is largely immaterial.  The central banks are also aware of the situation and they will keep printing to keep the natural outcome from materializing.  The collapse will come from an unforeseen or external event they cannot control.  If you have access to a chart they have access to, you can be assured that they will manipulate it.

Oh look, more doom and gloom.

Hey everyone on CNBC says that earnings are increasing and that the economy is slowly growing. 

1stepcloser's picture

I troll CNBC comments and at least that site is better than CNN money.  CNN's Big Time Ball licking of Dear Leader is too much to take.

This chart perfectly demonstrates that the market fully believes that bad news = more money printing which = higher stock is quite logical and has been born out in the past few years.

Watching the markets today was pure fucking entertainment.


No follow through Yellen???  What's the matter bitch??? Printer run out of ink???


That's a shame Yellen you fucking pig!!!!

I'd like to see a longer term version of this chart.

Well that's just fucking stupid.

It's the new normal. It really is different this time. You don't need GDP growth to support stock prices when you have an unlimited supply of paper and ink for the printing press

22winmag's picture

Again, what is GDP except a *yardstick for waste and inefficiency*?

Long war 2015, or 2016 if the trend continues or whenever markets finally catch up with reality, pop, and tank.  War by proxy/ally for sure, that is a permanent feature, direct combat is always an x factor.  

Don't forget both world wars were each decades in development before a shot was fired.   These are longterm events, with longterm financing, and longterm consequences.   The peleponesian war didn't start in a day either.

Yup war.    Always.    If history is a guide...... tptb will always fall back on good-old-fashioned war.   Prep!
