JPY Pump Failing As Momos Refuse To "Fight The Fed", Small Caps Slump On Yellen Warning

Tyler Durden's picture

Everyone knows that you "don't fight the Fed" - and sure enough, traders are selling momo, social media, and biotech stocks, sending the Russell 2000 ands Nasdaq to the lows of the day. Despite the best efforts of USDJPY momentum igniters - which has now shifted to tracking Treasury yields, pushing them modestly hgher. No bounce at all in broad US equity markets (though we expect the spin to be a rotation from growth to value once again very soon). Gold jumped on the dovishness but fell back to unch as did the USD. The S&P 500 is now in the red post-payrolls. Summing it all up - saying that these sectors are 'stretched' but the market is within 'norms' just won't cut it... Yellen is losing control and this level of specificity (and honesty) implies some degree of panic at the Fed.

Gold and silver are cheap. So are the stocks.
Pass it on to these S&P fools, like the gospel.

"Gold jumped on the dovishness but fell back to unch as did the USD."  What a difference a few minutes make: check your screen for the latest on Gold.

Even some simple sheep getting tired of the "pissing down my back and telling me it raining" bullshit.


Simply put, people are looking around and simply asking, if we are see a "slow recovery", then why aren't interest rates "slowly rising"?


Moreover, why are unfunded liabilities still growing, despite increasing tax revenues?


tick tock.

No announcement of more money.  Stocks need more money.  Banks need more money.  Bubbles need more money.  Granny Yellen is smacking the hand reaching for the punchbowl.  The grim realization that the party is ending has come.

The money will be coming from the countries that are going to try to get off the US dollar teat...they will start to dump their dollars by buying things and getting rid of them...stocks will be a part of that....

I think that already happened to the tune of 29 trillion in foreign fund and central banker money.

With the Fed taking trading and now research away from banks, how they supposed to make a buck?

Hey Fed toadies (yes, I know you're watching),

Instead of propping-up J-Yell to talk about he equity markets much like Goldilocks would talk about the temperature of the porriage she was stealing, why don't you instruct her to declare what the prices should be.  If you want the S&P to be at 1,400, then just declare it.  We're all sick of the managed manipulation.  The game of whispers is stupid.  Since we can't have our free markets back, we'd appreciate some clarity about what the central planning committee has dictated.

If I gave a school of kids 10 Trillion straws I'm sure they'd do something with them.

Look.  A straw tower.  Look.  A straw car.  Look.  A straw man, or is it a Woman?

Too bad people work for straws and need them to see the Doctor.
