Bond Yields Soar But Stocks Unsure Following Schizophrenic Jobs Data

Tyler Durden's picture


Great news - unemployment rate is tumbling (stocks rally and bond yields rip higher). Bad news - unemployment rate is tumbling (for all sorts of technical reasons that are entirely fallacious and do not reflect reality at all - stocks dump)... Bonds - after 2 days of aggressive short-squeeze covering - are bouncing higher in yield and stocks not holding any bid (with gold down) as better-than-expected data headlines suggest the punchbowl is steadily disappearing over the horizon. The USD is surging with USDJPY pumped up to 103 (but stocks not holding it for now) Perhaps bonds will recover once they sniff below the surface...



USDJPY blew through stops at 103 and is fading back now...


Stocks and bonds have a long way to play catch-down...

More "Price covery" in the markets today.  That's all we see anymore.  Not discovery, rather covery.

it did bounce hard off 2.70 didn't it?    like a handball served by a Puerto Rican papi off the Harlem asphalt.

been having a suspicion that the fat finger to 2.95 on 4/21 was a telegraph to where the 10yr was heading, but now beginning to wonder.

  I watched usd/jpy leak higher all through Europe, so I knew what to expect. The cat was out of the bag about 2 hours before London opened. No manipulation here.

It is not the YTM that is of value to bond guys its the ability to control larger credit positions because of its collateral acceptance ease? Holding something until maturity is the minorist of reasons to buy bonds right now! Having access to these markets would be epic considering the total divergance of sense being displayed in today's commentary?

After this report is there any doubt that USA is much further along than the rest of the currency blocks? Day to day fluctuations make interesting copy but when currency traders are looking for growth and not epic dislocations they will be wanting DOLLARS! It not how far you have come as nation its how much your currency retains power of the purchasers COMPARED externally?
