Perfectly Idiotic Market

Tyler Durden's picture


Sadly, the chart below says it all. It also means the summer of 2011 is now upon us.

In other news, our recreation of the BofA inhouse model says 110% of QE3 is now priced in.

Update: just freaking hilarious.

Now 100 pip plunge from the highs. Unprecedented.

For the moment, equities have not had a breath to see the EURUSD drop ...

The graph proves that the market is not acting in any way like an "attack dog" to get policy makers to make concessions.   Instead, it is a lap dog that jumps on the sofa waiting for a nice plate of dog toys.

EUR probably not quite as relevent following the short squeeze, as treasury yields and bunds.

Funny. The agency REITs are rallying big time today, just as their book value is falling and liklihood of secondaries increasing. Manic to say the least.

The next time QE or money printing is announced.... the markets will PLUNGE! Just like a girl tittilating a teenage boy... soon enough he slaps her and leaves.

There is NO VOLUME, so the market is easily moved. A fly farts in Slovakia and that will move the market, the whole thing is retarded...

seems like the louder the rants on ZH, the more the market rallys.  sell signal may come when a "guest post" is on why the market is headed higher

Not expecting it, but I wouldn't be at all suprised to see the largest rally next Monday, 35+ in es.

It would be entirely too easy, being the last ramp-job is always the biggest.

Plus, everyone is expecting a drop Monday, which is just a setup for yet another squeeze.

Can't wait until


wait ... probably already does that ... actually I'm sure it does.

Edit: Not being snarky against ZH but I worked on some financial sentiment gathering algos way back in the day before ZH was around. Given the popularity of this site - yeah I would throw into the mix now (if I still worked in that area).

Very frustrating.  My euro short was +100. Then went to -88 (stopl loss at 1.2387).  Now if it had not hit stop loss would be  + $240.

It's also a great sport.  "Stop-loss hunting."  Never a shortage of game out there.
