GDP Market Reaction - NEW QE-Off Trade (For Now)

Tyler Durden's picture


From the swings and lows of historical revisions to beats across the board of GDP data this morning, it seems the market's pre-occupation with NEW QE is now being faded (modestly for now). Treasuries are 4-5bps higher in yield, S&P 500 futures down around 5pts, Gold down $10, and the USD up modestly. For now, it's QE-off, though no-one seems convinced as EURUSD falls - which fits better with the Fed won't print but ECB will perspective.



and close up...

Christ, if the market wants QE3 they need to mass sell to drive the S&P down to a significantly lower level, buy the fucking dip and enjoy. 

How hard would that be to co-ordinate? Not very — TBTFs and algos could pull it off in less than an hour. So if it's not happening obviously the market isn't hungry enough for it.

Same for the PM bugs who squeal murder when the Gold and Silver prices go down.

Short them to near zero and then buy the ultimate dip!

But no, there is no sanity on either side.

If the fed does not print and the ECB does the dollar will strengthen once the stupid ass clowns actually understand what currency dilution does to the currency. People are already getting a glimpse of what a strong dollar will do to earnings.

Funny for a short while the masses will actually benefit from prices coming down until Ben takes a bat to their heads after the election.

One must think.
This is now a centrally planned economy by design. The smoke and mirrors of chaos is there to aid it's implementation. Just as the global controls of population accelerate (cameras, drones, TSA, HS,...), so does the move toward control of commerce and money on a global scale.

The chaos has increased, and the move to control has increased.

Simply step back from the fray and observe the entire display. It will soon be all out of our hands, and completely in the hands of our "handlers".
Comforting thought!

Open Letter to the President Of European Central Bank July 27th, 2012 by Rybinski | Posted in: monetary policy

To: President of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi

Dear Mr. President,

The public is increasingly convinced that the financial sector in developed countries violates basic ethical principles and take action against the law. Investigations are conducted by prosecutors, and those he held the highest offices of financial institutions shall resign. Today we know that the most important of the world interest rate, LIBOR, was subject to manipulation by which banks achieve financial benefits at the expense of customers. It is not clear what role in the affair played by central banks, I hope that this will be explained effectively in the investigation that continues on both sides of the Atlantic.

Lord's statement yesterday shook the financial markets, dramatically changed exchange rates, stock indices, interest rates on government bonds, derivative instruments. In the current context where Europe could be plunged into the depths of the financial crisis of biblical proportions, it is very important that the standards of conduct of monetary policy in Europe has been maintained at the highest level. Therefore, I believe that you should take the following actions:

- Make public the ECB who knew that he would give you yesterday's comment

- Publish a list of billing all the people who know that this comment will be delivered,

- Publish a list of people outside the ECB, with particular reference to the representatives of the financial sector, which in recent days met anyone who has information that will be delivered this comment

Such monitoring should cut all speculations appearing on the Internet, which suggests that the standards of conducting monetary policy in developed countries have significantly reduced.

Prof. Krzysztof Rybinski

Rector of the University Vistula, Vice President of the NBP in the years 2004-2008

I think we're looking at high probability of coordinated easing across multiple central banks (incluing the ECB).   If it isn't coordinated, then currencies will be swinging and effecting imports/exports.  Second, by coordinated, the ECB will have cover to do what it has wanted to do but supposedly can't.  Are the Germans going to fight all the world's Central Banks. 

Look to Japan, England, ECB, Federal Reserve, China, etc. to be in the mix.

Things are more than serious right now; they are deadly.  The CB's have to be playing for keeps.

This is possible, only problem is OIL is near $100, food prices are already on their way to new highs without QE and this type of coordinated action , while temporarily moving the indexes a bit higher, it would make commodities soar, hardly what you need to increase earnings and more importantly to feed the masses.......

Fri, 07/27/2012 - 09:49 | 2656260 miker
miker's picture

Commodity prices also have to follow the law of supply/demand.  Yes they may try to rise with devaluation expectations but at the same time will be tempered with soft demand.  Equities are alot more squishy in this regard (PE valuations, etc.).

Actually the CBs want as much inflation as the system will bear.  Right now, that ain't much, but anythiing that can cause some stickiness is being tried.  Food prices haven't really fallen back from 1-2 years back so that may be 'locked' into the system.

But even with these concerns about commodities price increases, preventing a debt deflation spiral trumps all.  If deflation accelerates downward, debt can't be paid off.....defaults rise and at some point, people will get out of the debt.  Game over.

" If deflation accelerates downward, debt can't be paid off.....defaults rise and at some point, people will get out of the debt.  Game over."


This comment does not make any sense at all, in that if QEIII or LTRO 2 whatever is implemented by printing and issuing more debt then what?

debt can now be paid back?

it is a case of the head biting its tail, or maybe more to the point fucking yourself  ( I mean Europe) with your own dick. I can picture the movie .....

The equity markets will rally into this.  More printing means decreased value of the currency which means stocks will be priced higher,  nominally. 

This is the beauty of QE.  It keeps the stock markets higher for two reasons, the often touted risk-on trade but the more powerful behind the scenes realization that stocks are a good place to be when a currency is devalued.

At a personal level, what is happening is a disaster.  Of course the Fed and CB's can't deal in the personal level or they would frozen.  They have many being that everyone shared in the "prosperity" going up so all will have to suffer the pain going down.  I don't at all support what has happened or is going to happen, it was terribly wrong, but what choice do they have now?

Let the economy sink into a deflationary spiral?  That is clearly where things are headed with such an enormous debt overhang across the developed world.  Of course I'm not at all convinced that more QE will save the day; but it's about the only thing they can do.  Unless of course if society breaks down into anarchy in which case the military will be able to do much more.

Deflation or inflation?

Most all nations are now in the "print til the presses break mode"

I do not think deflation will win the horrible days ahead. Nations will inflate until it's "global Zimbabwe" ..... and then global depression with the loss of perhaps several billion souls. Some in fact will toil to earn their kool aid, and gladly drink it down.

Fri, 07/27/2012 - 10:10 | 2656359 miker

Actually the CBs are very mindful that even the perception of too much printing could ruin trust in the system.  So they do as little as possible.  However, they will counter at every turn, strong deflationary pressures like what we are seeing in spades now.  They see the risk of a deflationary sprial exceeding the risk of losing currency faith from "moderate" printing.  Of course everyone has their own definitino of "moderate".  Still, as long as the printing only results in inflation that just counters the deflation form credit collapse and pricing destruction, well that is what they are shooting for.

The big question of course is where this all ends with so much latent inflation left in the system.  The average person knows nothing of this so the threat to the currency of mass defecting is limited.
