QE3 Levitation Day 2

Tyler Durden's picture


Yesterday we said that the "2010 Post-Jackson Hole No Volume Levitation Has Begun." Sure enough Day 2 is in the books. And anyone who recalls those fun days of deranged volatility from a week ago, when the DJIA moved +/- 400 points in a day, you can kiss those goodbye. The new no volume levitation regime is the same as the old no volume levitation regime, experienced so well between August 2010 and March 2011. The market will proceed to price in central planning in its most recent iteration of QE3 day, after day, after day, until September 21, and if nothing is announced then, until November 2, and then December 13, and so on, because the levered beta pursuit, aka "career risk" trade is now back on. It also means that the Fed will soon have to resume monetizing the $2.4 trillion in debt, well above the total excess reserves held by banks currently, that will be issued over the next year (did our good readers forget about all that debt that needs to find a buyer?). And while stocks are picking up the now standard 10 ES points per day, gold will one day very soon declare its independence from this centrally planned bullshit and just take off on its way to a self-imposed gold standard, which also means first 4, then 5, then increasingly more zeroes when expressing its price in reserve bank toiler paper terms. Incidentally, just like last year "nobody" could see QE2 happening, it may be time to put some money in Paulson & Co. which has been all but left for dead - somehow he always pulls out the centrally assisted hail mary in the last minute.

What is truly sad is that our fearless centrally planned leaders have officially run out of ideas and the only thing they can do is regurgitate the same policy error that did not work last year.

Oh well, at least everyone knows by now how it all ends: stocks unchanged for the year, gold up 30%

Gold's only going up because labor day's coming up and Irene "wiped out" the east coast. There will be a shortage and everyone knows that. Can't pull it out of the ground without labor. And labor day removes labor. After that, it will crash right back to $185(,000) where it belongs. Transitory tradition, what a barbarous relic that unedible piece of shit metal.

Or as Uncle Buff says: "It doesn't "do" anything! It doesn't even pay a dividend! It just sits there collecting dust! We could fit all of it in a 16m cube for crying out loud."

He forgot that it's the exponential opposite of inflation :(

jp morgan: "money is gold, nothing else"

so in reality, gold is a hedge not against inflation but against deflation — when gold rises and rises, the price of everything — put up against money, or i.e. gold — is deflating because money buys more and more. at one over-inflated stage, the DJIA:AU was 1:50. Now it's 1:5. It's going to parity. Maybe even 2:1

That all may be true - but with volume so utterly putrid (I Know - CNBC says it is to be expected in this Holiday Shortened Trading Week) - but that not withstanding - the volume to me seems to indicate that we very well may be in the throes of The Mother of ALL Distribution - and that once it ends - we WILL see a market colapse the likes of which has never been witnessed in modern history. 1228 - 1229 is my back of the napkin level to watch.

If you count the move off the 1101 low as an ABC - and if C = A - then you get 1229ish and yes - a .50 fib retrace comes in at 1228 and change as I recall - so there are two reasons to think the 1228 - 1229 area may be it -- but we won't know for sure until BEN and the machines confirm and we see more than 15 contracts trade on the way dwon.

@ bear heads exploding everywhere.   This is the only way for the HFTs to steal money out of the market for now.

It's the ONLY way they can take the market up. Got to love the same old, same old crap they take up.

Parabolic stock: AZO and they talk about gold being such. They just put one in near where I live, one block away from a new AAP.

The Advance Auto part store is where the Rent-A-Center was.  RCII was only open for one year. The town could not support it.

Better yet, the auto parts stores are canabalizing themselves. Now AZO and AAP both have other stores within 5 miles.

It's Unbelievable that they would do this. Wait till this does not end well. They will look worse than Sears Holdings.   

What happens when the shorts are out and there is NO bid under it all.   Hmmmm.   Then the market explodes !!!

Better yet, in my neck of the woods, everywhere that Advanced Auto builds is either right next to another auto parts store, or right across the street from one. I noticed it right away when AAP first came to Oklahoma. They built across the street from an O'reillys on Air Depot Boulevard. They built right next door to an AZO on NE23rd and Douglas Avenue. I thought, "how rude and in your face can another company get?" To this day I refuse to shop in AAP stores, have not stepped foot in one yet.

Hope they go under big time.

The Mother of ALL Distribution

You saw a nice dose of it at the close.  Again, and because the stock market is driven by mentally retarded lemmings, everything [less gold and the dollar] traded as one.

Check any equity chart in the last ten minutes.  As ES came off, liqiudation was the order...dumping all the over pumped shares into the puke buckets known as the ETFs.

Disgusting.  As always, and with these same criminal bankers in charge of our markets, capital will not form and the Greater American Depression will roll on.

Bidless is exactly how I would describe equities in the AH session.  Every one I follow is sitting there with nothing but air beneath it as the ES bid vaporized in the last ten minutes of the market.

And of course, our supposed financial advisors who were panic buying into the market today are showing just how much value they add to the whole "investing" thing.

I, for one, do not believe so.  Again, the QE3 catalysts needs to occur...selling, risk aversion, fear and loathing, bears all over the BlowHorn [CNBC]....a sub 1100 S&P close.  Today's algo driven, ES floating pop on talk of QE3 was for the suckers.  It was for all the under performing active managers panic buying into the market, sold a bill of goods by the faster HFT boys.

We have had yet another short squeeze over the last five days...nothing much more than this.

As I have been saying for months...Ben needs the dollar to be a lot stronger against a boat load of currencies [the dixie] before he can even consider pulling that trigger again.  To do it now with stocks high and the dollar weak would create a dollar crisis which would consume ANY and ALL effects of the money printing effort...instantly.  There would be no point in launching the next easing move without that dollar higher.

I know we are all talking about how it was talked about, but all we are seeing is a combination of short covering and the slower lemmings climbing aboard the rally...too was the case when the slow lemmings were selling the market short in the hole two weeks ago.

And in the meantime, the Ron Paul story is picking up steam, as this conversation about the Fed is out there in John Q's public...and the political risk at the Fed is about as high as it has ever been.  No one here seems to consider that.

The few who did said 'Oh well, it will come back tomorrow' one is scared of markets theyve been conditioned to expect a recovery of ANY drop if they want to really scare people its going to have to ba an incredible series of drops with the media going crazy about it.

Agreed. There are many 401k folks out there who don't like the idea of money printing, but come around to it when they see a 10-15% drop in the markets and their 401k. For a big, public qe3 to happen, there will need to be enough fear and panic among average folks to provide the political cover needed.

QE2 was responsible for much of the current slow down in the global economy.  Go back and take a look at oil and food pricing from the Bernanke anouncement last year and the weaker $ fueled other price increases.  Food and energy are a much larger part of consumption by low income people and/or for many people outside the United States.  This reduces consumer discretionary spending for other goods and was a large factor in slowing global growth.  Bernanke was aimed at the $, long rates and the stock market to rid concern of deflation and to improve consumer attitudes--especially for the high end.  It was all at the expense of the average consumer and it is now evident that consumer confidence has collapsed.   Quantitative Easing was not successful and will not help now.  It is for Bernanke's friends on Wall Street.

You know we never did get that dip in gas prices to go with the drop from $90 or so odd dollars to $76. Now that we are back up to $90 I expect the price to go up higher than the price should be at that per barrel cost because they will say oil traded up $15 in two weeks.

I went to Bob Evans this morning and the price of the Farmer's Breakfast went up $1.50 from last week. I saw Florida OJ priced at $5.85 for a half gallon and milk is back up over $3.50 per gallon.


I don't know why restaurants even put prices on menus anymore. Well they print them in china for a couple cents each, but by the time they get here the prices will already need to be changed.

you're using the incorrect inflation indicator.

You need to use the Biden-adjustment. Start will all products consumed by households. Then remove any products that have gone up in price. Include any products where the price has gone up but your consumption has gone down, so you spend exactly the same amount of nominal dollars on the item (these are reflected as no-increase in price, since you're spending exactly the same amount, $4 for that 14oz box of cereal, vs $4 for a 16oz box of cereal last year = no price increase).

Ignore fuel and energy costs in your calculation, except when they move down. I.e. when gas went from $2 to $4 a gallon ignore it because its too volatile. But when it drops from $4 to $3.50, then factor in that 12.5% decrease (deflation) in energy costs in your calculation, and you will see we are at significant risk of deflation!

Then they'll have to bang it down a few to get the shorts to reload so that the markets can be banged up into the Bernank fairytale, all to set up for a spectacular post-fed, end-of-September-quarter orgasmic moon shot.

and it's starting to top out.  Again, will be watching Asia, on equity weakness.  US indexes have lost the plot, telling will be mid week selling right up to Sept 20 or when ever QE3 is pumped.
