Gold's Surge, Stocks Purge, And Treasury Yield Records Emerge

Tyler Durden's picture


The market was anxious going in to the NFP print but once the dismal data point hit, things deteriorated rapidly.

Pre-NFP ->EUR 1.2322, ES 1292, WTI $84, 10Y 1.51%, 30Y 2.59%, gold $1554

Post-NFP -> EUR -10pips 1.2312, ES  -10 1282, WTI -$1.2 $82.8, 10Y -5bps 1.46%, 30Y -7bps 2.52%, gold +$18 $1572

Treasury yields at record lows (10Y well below and 30Y right at Dec08 lows) as Gold pops (QE hope?) but stocks don't for now (reality of QE's inability to really help?). Oil down on global growth markdowns and EUR modestly weaker (choppy but practically unch now) - though looks like its all relative printing expectations now.

Gold vs USD vs Stocks vs Treasury Yields

Gold and Silver outperforming...

Treasury rates are just plummeting...30Y -32bps this weeks!

It seems the SNB has been active as EUR/JPY explodes in a choppy mess...

When that is ALL there is or the ONLY game in town, it has to happen with regular frequent occurrence.  I am not talking about QE, but rather the HOPE of QE.

Nixon, Carter and others dealt with their emergencies using Saturday announcements, but this credit collapse may require an entire weekend at bernies, and will require a complete credit-equity market seizure.

The stock market isn't as oversold on an intermediate term basis so stocks wont benefit as much.  Gold has been down for 4 months in a row and has been deeply oversold.  Gold had HUGE spec short interest and HUGE commercial short covering. 


I guess my point is...  As much as everyone wants to say the markets have been correlated, they haven't been.  The magnitude and duration of corrections have been different.

I totally agree, how can 5% off and being basically flat for the year drive QE3.  I think unless the market totally unhinges in the next 3 weeks Bernie won't have any ability to print.  The way commodities are collapsing I expect the market to follow the trend soon

"august profit target of 1590/1600" and current spot price is 1588, what an amazing delta to grab, $2. Also the immediate spike on NFP shows this is not a technical gain but a knee-jerk anticipating QE, still not seeing any correct prediction based on technicals, more like luck on NFP reaction.

Yes excellent prediction. As was Screwtapes ,


"Here's the $GOLD:$CRB index from last post, which was discussed a bit in the comments. Breakout? A few more up days, and it will certainly start looking like the next big move for gold as a safe haven is upon us."

Wait till the leveraged buyout on the back of a European fire sale occurs. All those trillions of dollars collected and stored as cash in corporate coffers will be used to basically own Europe.

Somewhere Bernake, Bush and Obama are having breakfast, ribbing each other and going "I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!"

XtraBullish yesterday on June Gold at $1558, July Silver @ $27.18 and 400 Goldcorp July 38 calls at $1.90. Thanks Tyler - I owe you buddy!

Gold IS the last standing 'safe haven" despite what all these mutts are quacking off about...you price gold at $3,500/oz against all that Eurozone (and U.S.) debt and collateralize the paper with the tonnes and you have the solution. The tonnes are FINITE and the Euro/U.S. debts are FINITE so the only VARIABLE is the PRICE of gold.

Coming soon to a theatre near you.....

Bill Murphy of GATA just pushed this update out. I trust he won't mind me posting it for ZH readers.... See Le Metropole Cafe

Le Metropole Members,

RARELY do I send out an email alert, but since I have not
seen anything like this in 13 years, I thought it advisable.

The US jobs report was a disaster, not even aided by
a substantial increase in the birth/death model. The
DOW is called 180 lower, the euro is tanking, but gold
is SOARING and has the general investment world stunned.

Will get into this in MIDAS later. The point is this
is the time to be paying attention to what is going on out
there. What is occurring in gold in terms of its action
of late, and today, is  unprecedented, at least in terms
of me watching the price action every day for over a decade.

Chaos not only looms, you can smell it. The Muppets on
CNBC are as dour as they can be.

Europe is done. Toast. The panicked movement to any safe haven is starting. US bonds are tanking (people will take whatever Bernake will offer them), German and Swiss bonds are negative (you pay THEM to not steal your money). Gold will rise temporarily while the fuse is hissing. Once the boom happens, gold will tank hard.

I think both the fundamentals of the global economy (mainly in Europe) as well as technical indicators seem to point out that the stock market continue to fall before it starts to rise. As this goes against Bernanke's plan and increases the risk of the destruction of the Euro, it is possible to see the Fed and ECB trying to take desperate measures (QE3?). In any case, there are great opportunities to make money with these trends.

Worth a repeat:

Here is an emblematic photo from about 1913 or so.   The caption reads, "Washington, D.C. "Storm damage. Between 1913 and 1918." Somewhere under all this rubble, I suspect, is a narrative waiting to be unearthed by a Shorpy history detective. Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative."

Here's the link: http://theautomaticearth.org/images/afterthestorm.jpg

Note the building facade is propped up with a few lengths of lumber.   The entire building is destroyed, but the "image" must be maintained.

It's the story of the U. S. since the 1913 era -- Federal Reserve System established.
