Biggest Short Squeeze In 11 Months Sends S&P 500 Surging Above 2,600

Tyler Durden's picture

Equity investors, corporate boards, and momo machines are panic-buying stocks this morning, sending the S&P 500 above 2600 for the first time ever... as the yield curve crashes to decade flats...

VIX down, Stocks Up...


While USDJPY momo is helping, stocks are quite decoupled...


And so are bonds...


But it's all about the squeeze... the biggest short squeeze since December...

 So where is the coralating employment #s?

gatorengineer's picture

We are rapidly approaching negative unemployment numbers.  Meanwhile Underemployment is approaching 100 percent, and the FSA has never had it so good.

Government, healthcare, universities are the top employers in nearly every state.

So where is the coralating employment #s?

Fundamentals?  That is so two decades ago.  Fundamentals are no longer in fashion, like bell bottom jeans and mullets.

gatorengineer's picture

Giverment and Universities are generally just an extension of the Free Shit Army, the salaries and bennies are so disconnected from the private sector as to not be funny.

The folks I know in healthcare are getting squeezed just like everyone else, the only winners there seem to be the administrators.

They won't wait that long- early Thursday  attack on Hezbollah by Israhell while US fatties watch football and look at Black Friday ads.

The Kikes aint that stupid, they will wait for a false flag as an excuse, not to say their wont be one, but they wont go in without it, else they will get their ass handed to them as well, because it wont be a conventional war....  The sunnis will get their ass handed to them by the Shia's and their only salvation would be alot of American blood, if the house of Saud tries to start shit as it would appear to be the case.  They cant even deal with Hootie and the blowfish....

You like to eat that expensive stuff? 

When you compare how much food you get for the same $$$ in cat food versus a  rotisserie supermarket chicken, the cat food is crazy expensive.

Everyone is Buffet now, all genius, no need more expert's advise. If market going up everyday, why working, why expand your business, just put all your money in it. thats it.


this stock bubble is worse than 2000 dotbubble, why did the last one burst, and this one wont?


the sales discount are getting bigger by day in this holiday, ppl are poorer with maxmized credit cards.

How fed is going to help the consumers?


auto loan crisis is contained? 


Everyone think Centra Banks will take whatever it takes to keep economy growing, but how?

> Everyone is Buffet now

Except people who can't afford his - or any other - manufactured homes:

"The industry, led by Warren Buffett’s Clayton Homes Inc., is peddling such pricey interior-designer touches as breakfast bars and his-and-her bathroom sinks. These extras, plus manufacturers’ increased costs for labor and materials, have pushed average prices for new double-wides up more than 20 percent in five years, putting them out of reach for many of the newly homeless."

Talk about squeezes ... and rocks and hard spots.

You seem like an earnest, pleasant fellow, but frankly, it's hard to fathom how anyone can continue to view markets, which have been Fed-liquidity driven and algorithmically controlled for close to 15 years, with puerile, 'commonsense' statements like this.  Have you never seen a holiday week low-liquidity short squeeze before (hint: volume is NOT running high today).  I say this not to beat you up, but merely to suggest it's time to change, avoid becoming dinosaurs like the "Fast Money' crowd clinging to the past. 

Read Michael Harris' "Price Action Lab" blog to see graphs on how the former high serial autocorrelation (e.g., trend) period ended in roughly 1990, with strong mean-reversion ever since, which has led to a great wealth redistribution from both old-school technical analysts (whose 'indicators' only worked due to autocorrelation, NOT genius) and "this must make sense" fundamental types.  Going forward, NEVER plot any chart in ANY time-frame without volatility envelope overlays (Keltners, Bollingers, etc.), and you'll see 'mean-reversion' is a misnomer, and is as much about return trades toward central 20EMAs in all time frames as it is squeezes up to, and during holiday periods beyond, upper envelope limits where all the short buy-stops are present (and where any selling pressure from the buy side is on vacation).  Good luck!

Thanks for the reminder.

However, as a volatility trader, I only give Keltner channels and Bollinger Bands secondary, or even tertiary weight as indicators. During steep corrections, price can drop so fast it's actually behind the bottom Bollinger Band. And vice-versa if going up quickly. If I read too many overlayed indicators, it starts fucking with my head.

I got out of SVXY today due to overbought RSI readings on the weekly, hourly and 15-min. charts. I'll admit though that the Bollinger Bands and Keltnor Channels are also helping here as indicators. 

Also, in case you haven't tried it yet with Bollinger Bands, try this: Replace the 20-number with a 50. You can also overlap these two different numbered Bollinger Bands. 

Want to guess where I got that one? John Bollinger, himself, from a video interview for Investopedia.

Ahhh great point :) .. Hurrayyyyyyyyyyy....

But you missed a point!


The people in the developed world (most of them) will live off of the developing/Emerging Market nations in the form of pensioning (close to the top of food chain) /investing (top of food chain) while those fools (not by choice) work to produce/buy/sell the normal daily life requirement (basic businesses).


It has been this way since the beginning of our human time.

Who is still left to be short squeezed to dust ??? Ron Insana ???? This is the greatest fraud ever !!!

Didn't BofA say this whole rally since the beginning of 2017 had been a non-stop short squeeze? It's time for a bigger pullback, we're making history every day, the longest no of days since 3%, 5%, 10% pullback, yada yada yada, breadth is as shite as it gets

I think the USD, Euro, Yuan, and other fiats will go to the SDR/XDR crypto.  This crypto comes as soon as the main three: USD, Euro, Yuan take a poop.

All fun and games until the Sexual Harrassment target is on Donald's back.  I believe This is all a plot to throw a few democrats and liberals under the bus so they can go after Donald and no one will stand to defend him.  The blood in the water is causing a feeding frenzi and no one will stick their toe in the water when they come for Donald.


Once impeachment is viewed as possible the market will tank


I don't want it to happen, but I fear this is all just a setup.


We will see if the deflon Don can avoid getting stuck in this mess.  He needs the shut his twitter and focus on tax cuts

They cannot impeach him for actions as a private citizen before taking the office.

 That's why the allegation against Al Franken by that ex Playboy model is not that hazardous to him, but the second one, by that lady that was groped by him at the fair is. He was a senator at that time.
