How much longer can this hope-filled balloon be held under water?

'Exceptional Stability'

As Bloomberg notes, swings in U.S. stocks have become unusually narrow as a rally, driven by Donald Trump’s election as president, has persisted. The S&P 500 Index’s volatility over 65 trading days, or about three months, ended last week at the lowest since November 1995. The 65-day time frame was cited in a report Tuesday by David Rosenberg, chief economist and strategist at Gluskin Sheff & Associates Inc.

 

And still no losing days in February for tech stocks...

 

But the US equity market and VIX (volatility expectations) have now been decoupled for 8 trading days...

Remember after QE3 the BOJ and ECB replaced the FED almost immediately. No worry though the Japanese owe most of their debt to themselves, LOL. Which is just another term for bag holder. Luckily here in the US we only owe "ourselves" 25%, and our debt to GDP is only 110%.

"our debt to GDP is only 110%."

Oh, my, I was worried there for a minute; what a relief that our debt to GDP ratio is only 110%!
Definately a stable signal for an oversold market economy!

To me it is 1927-1929, but I'm not sure where we are exactly. Keep an eye on the horizon and enjoy while you can.
