Charting Equity's Hype/Hope

Tyler Durden's picture

On this slow news and market action day it is worth noting that Equities and Treasuries have dramatically dislocated in the last few days with Treasury yields near multi-month lows and stocks at one-month highs. Whether this is the ($700 billion expected) QE3-trade or a reflection of the increasingly bifurcated world in which we live is unclear but for certain this is the largest disconnect (with equities rich) of the year so far.

I just tried to call over at Ben's office. Nobody is answering the phone. I see Army choppers landing and taking off from Lower Manhattan rooftops. They're being "raptured" and we're the ones left behind. Sweet Jesus' got nothing to do with it though.

Divergence followed by convergence.

Below is an "elliott waved" chart of the SP500 that points down.

Headline caught my eye:

Monster Shares Soar on Rumors of Coke Deal.

Turns out they were talkin' about Coca-Cola, though. Damn. That could have been a deal worth buying into.

Tyler, will there be an article discussing the Tilson BKS fraud... Uh I mean flip flop?

Tyler Durden's picture

It's just humiliating to be Tilson now. He admitted to charging 2 and 20 merely to piggyback on VIC reports: that's not even worth of Boiler Room rank amateurism.

Granted his AUM can be counted on one hand, but we are happy to provide the same service for a far lower fee.

Thanks. My best ideas come from Barrons and

that was AAPL spike+ END OF MONTH WINDOWDRESSING starting 4-23, now they dump. Nuke them all. Fumigate the Primary Dealers.

So, just for fun,  let's do a

ZH member's survey on how you think this disconnect will get rectified in the next few days:


If you think S&P is about to PLUNGE:  click on RED/DOWN arrow

If you think Treasury yields are about to POP: click on GREEN/UP arrow


(if you're not signed in to ZH you won't see these arrows...)

----------->  (Sideways arrow = I don't have the slightest fucking idea, maybe a bit of both.)

So we have a $ 700 billion USD divergence to close

Multiply by 3, add the square root of pi, divide by zero ...

By my math, starting at zero on the short end of the curve and maxing out at + 0.65% on the 30 year (the 10 year has a bit of kink in the distribution) takes care of the Tresury curve

and then, taking the cube root of Ben's IQ and multiplying that by  average X Factor female judge bust sizes (Simon Cowell is the root of cultural rot) ...

Say a quick 378 points of the S&P .... yep, closed the convergence for you.

Now of the tricky part (timing), I need fresh chicken entrails ...

Buy way far the best laugh of the morning. THANKS!

This sideways drift today is getting tedious...

Equities have gone in backwardation. Future price is much lower than the current price so primary dealers are forced to buy up the market in order not to lose market value. Same as for commodities.

Case in point: BAC volume was just 120 mil on Friday on a average of 270 mill. Right now is at about 77 mil with 2 hours remained.

BlandJoe24's picture

Does volume alone show backwardation, or are there other factors you are using to come to this conclusion?  (Not disagreeing, just curious - thanks).

ekm's picture

Pure opinion out of daily observation.

I've been watching BAC every 10 minutes here at work it been 1 year already, every day (I do not work in finance, I'm  an engineer). I think BAC is the best barometer for the market.


3.45pm only 104 million BAC shares traded.

118 million at close of day. Practically zero.

HFTs and Algos are deserving a break.

Seriously, the volume is so ridiculously low .. it makes you wonder if they turned the computers off. It doesn't make any sense for them to run the programs and the machines when they can't flip the stocks to "dumb" money.

Ever since MF Global and Goldman's "Muppets" has the market deteriorated to a point where it will eventually flat line.

This market is comatose without central bank intervention. What does that really mean? That means that the show is quite literally coming to an end. They survived another 4 years after Bear and Lehman but it was on borrowed time.

We're officially done now. No more tricks, no more gimmicks. Just done. Give it a few weeks before it finally sinks in and the calls for redemptions are coming in. More redemptions than the system can handle and no amount of liquidity guarantee could put a floor under the market. By this time, the efforts would be pointless as it has been demonstrated again and again that the money simply doesn't exist and that fractional reserve lending was never meant to come to an end.

Enjoy the peace and quiet as long as it lasts for it will get ugly real soon.

Try and place short bets at your own peril. They won't allow you to collect even when you're in the money.

"Try and place short bets at your own peril. They won't allow you to collect even when you're in the money."


Please explain this a little more, especially the "they won't allow you to collect" part.  Thanks.

In my estimation, the next downdraft or bank run will not be allowed to benefit anyone. When a vast majority seeks to redeem and convert into tangibles, the arteries will dry up. If you're in the money on equities, you can sell and redeem and convert. It would be unwise to speculate on a market crash or collapse and hope to make multiples in short sales. I could be wrong though. The CBs have way too much riding on this and the attention to financial markets and financial news is greater than ever.
