The Entire World Is "Overbought"

Tyler Durden's picture

After an initial delay, global stock markets have joined the Trump-flation euphoria in recent weeks. In fact, despite the dismal decline in global earnings, global stocks are now within inches of April 2015's record highs, and are now the most overbought since July 2014.

Everything is awsome in the world again...

When global stocks reached this level previously, they plunged over 20% in the next 6 months.

When global stocks were this overbought in 2014, they plunged over 10% in 5 weeks.

Oh, just one more thing...

Trade accordingly.

When I see the SNB buying Billions of US stocks outright with no intent to sell, this says to me, others will jump on the boat (like the EU or Japan shortly after they run out of EU stocks, the will start buying ADRs which will allow them more time), and the CBs are smart enough to focus on index stocks not from a risk perspective but from a 'if it never goes down then I don't need to show losses" perspective.  This new era of the game can go on for years and if the US jumps in with SS money to invest or similar, then another 15 years and Dow 50,000 is not out of the question.

LOL. Good one. Seems like more and more people on ZH are drinking the kool-aid.

This shizzle is just getting started really, most retail money sitting on the sidelines and most firms aren't fully invested either plus interest rates are still extremely low.........this all before the Euro has blown itself up too.  PMs will slowly grind upwards but stocks will be absolutely rediculous before this whole nonesense rolls over again.

Look at the central bank balance sheets for fuck's sake. All stimulus is indeed "fungible", global Weimar is coming.

earnings season is over...they have priced in years of stellar earnings in just a few weeks.  The geo-political and Trump tweets will rule the market movements for the next couple months.  In any regards--BTFD...too bad there is never a dip.

Stocks will rise over time because the absolutely have to.  It's not optional.

$25 Trillion in Retirement Assets.  Every Pension, 401K, and IRA 100% DEPENDANT on an ever increasing market.

$2 Trillion in Baby Boomer defferred taxes on their 410k's all coming due in next 10 years.

There is no choice but to rig the market higher.

I used to worry about things like EPS, free cashflow, leverage ratios, etc.  But I decided I'm really more of a "big picture" kinda guy.  So now I just buy the dip like everyone else and don't pay much attention to the details.


BigFatUglyBubble's picture

Poor muppets, they don't know about the dip?

Bullish until it ain't.

Trump knows what he is doing, stawks are going higher at a record clip.

Since your convinced you could do a better it. Or would you rather sit here lip flapping your gums.

BlueHorseShoeLovesDT's picture

You really don't pay attention to what Trump says, do you?

DOW was top at around 14,200 at the end of 2007, the major top. Now Dow is 20,400, did you see something similar? Both situation that investors thought Fed or Trump will fix everything, but nothing happened or turn around. 6 month later, stocks imploded.


This is the bear market rally.

jamesmmu's picture

And both cases, economy are heading down, but sentiment keep going up. and market keep making new highs due to bullish sentiment. When they woke up to their leverages, market will crash.

So who is going to sell?


No one.

I own one square-inch on the moon (and a baking soda submarine). Got the deed and the sub in cereal boxes 60 years ago. Any snowflakes need a safe space in space, or beneath the waves in your bathtub?

Did you read the NY Times opinion piece by of May 31, 2016 called Is This the West’s Weimar Moment?

You can find it online at

Here is an excerpt:

In America and Europe, the rise of anti-establishment movements is a symptom of a cultural shock against globalized postmodernity, similar to the 1930s’ rejection of modernity. The common accusation by the “masses” is that liberal democracy has somehow gone too far, that it has become an ideology for an elite at the expense of everyone else. Marine Le Pen, chief of the French National Front, calls these normal folk “les invisibles et les oubliés,” the invisible and the forgotten.



Rebel yell's picture

I think that it is a rejection of hypocrisy, plutocracy, corporatocracy, and propaganda. That was what Hillary Clinton represented. She was not liberal and neither was Obama. They spoke that way, but all of their policies were far from liberal. People have also rejected modern neo-conservatism. We have rejected the self-serving establishment all together. I voted for Bernie in the primary and voted for Trump. I have been politically active throughout my adult life. I think that I would have killed myself if Hillary won because rewarding an evil, war-mongering criminal, and cheater like that is a country that I have no desire to live in.

I take unberance to the term "Neo- conservative" as the left has adopted and embraced it- so let's call it "Neo- progressive".

shorting this turd.

Bought sept vxx $14 calls @ $4.75

Too much complacency. Don't follow me unless u have balls of steel. Prefer to short vxx due to rolling structure but vol is just too low

the decay will kill you, on both the underlying and your option

Take a look at UVXY and TVIX - they both look like someone pulled the plug from the bottom of their respective lakes.

JailBanksters's picture

I have to admit, I have overbought

I bought a couple of tins of Kidney Bears, I didn't really need them at the time.

I just bought them in case I wanted to use them one day in the future.
