If Everything's So Awesome, Why Did This Happen Yesterday?

Tyler Durden's picture

Monday saw US equities ramp exuberantly on the back of a one-way street in USDJPY as the narrative proclaimed that "the world didn't end" and therefore we should buy stocks. There's just one thing...

The biggest bond ETF in the world saw the biggest inflow of funds in its history at the same time.

In fact, TLT - BlackRock's 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF has seen no outflows for 12 days.

Inflows have averaged over $150 million per day for the last week, which, as @SentimentTrader explains has led to significant gains 3-, 6-, and 12-months later...

 

And just in case you were wondering what these 'crazy' bond-buying freaks are seeing that the 'smart' equity investors are not...

It's the collapse in actual 'hard' economic data - as opposed to the survey-based 'soft' data that remains full of hope.

No, it's that third hurricane, the one right behind Jose. It's called the national debt.

On a more serious note, JOSE has NOT gone away just yet.

JURY is still out ... will America REPENT or NOT? Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?

While different from list below, we have seen WATER, FIRE, EARTHQUAKES and WIND involved to date. What is next: FINANCIAL COLLAPSE, INSECTS and DISEASE? Scary stuff if these recent events are a message from GOD.

Plagues of Egypt ...

Plague 1 — water turned into blood; fish died. ...

Plague 2 — frogs. ...

Plagues 3 and 4 — biting insects and wild animals. ...

Plagues 5 and 6 — livestock disease and boils. ...

Plague 7 — fiery hail. ...

Plague 8 — locusts. ...

Plague 9 — darkness.

That's all fine and good. I'm just learning about solar minimum and the mini ice age coming very soon.

I'll take true science over religion every time.

Religion controls people......Science sets people free.

All you need to know about the coming ice age can be found here;Adapt 2030 - YouTube  

With all the links David provides, you can go to the source for every data point he talks about.

I support him on https://www.patreon.com/. If you are not paying attention, this is going to blindside a shit load of people.

Watched it yesterday. Thanks to Duc888 on zerohedge. He has opened my eyes to up coming events like the solar minimum and the mini ice age.

I'll agree with you to a point. Science is SUPPOSED to "set people free." And yet, we are DENIERS if we do not adhere to "Global Warming" (Climate Change.) And, there are no longer Males and Females...now, you must recognize any number of "genders". I'll always be from the old school on that one. There are Males, Females, and those that used to be in the Sanitarium. Now we bow down to their "brave self-awareness." (ummmm, no...they're just crazy people.)

Science is a scam just like religion. But the Creator is very real.

Religion sells and if you do it right you can be filthy rich like Joel Osteen.

Religion and knowledge of God can be very different things. Science confirms God. The scientists who seek knowledge for power and a desire to play god can enjoy the freedom of a demon's embrace, they will find their hubris has made them worthy of little empathy.

Only if science is not kept secret by a few. Than science is like religion and sometimes we believe in the false gods. I don't believe in science nor religion. Both controlled by the parasitic elites.

I forgot about my life insurance policy until the other day.  Cash out doubled because of the crock market.  What a scam.  I totally forgot about that "investment vehicle".  I am worth more dead than alive and Mrs.M now knows this.  So I have that going for me.

Everything is good if you are on top 10% and super awesome if you are in the .00001%. If you are an average Joe and Jane maybe not so good.

I don't measure my happiness in terms of money. If you do, you will always find disappointment. Just sayin'.
