"Rule 48 Mondays" Are The New "Merger Mondays"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Remember when yelling "Monday" is all it took for the market to surge on mutual fund pumping and/or cheap money M&A? Neither do we.

"Mandatory" must have a new definition I am unfamiliar with, i.e. "optional".

Well last Rule 48 open Monday resulted in +200 DOW close....lets see how long they can keep the 'full retard' market going.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the last time Rule48 was invoked was the Monday after the S&P downgrade which still resulted in 500+ pt down day.

Last Monday was rule 48 day as well. And the Tuesday before that.

They may as well institute rule 48 permanently.

Let's fast forward to Wednesday's Federeal Reserve announcement of what additional easy monopoly money policy they are going to engage in.

I'd like to get back to spending more of my time gardening and things.. would anyone with a grasp of the ramifications of Op Twist mind sharing their view on how long the fed will be able to keep the long end of the curve buried in bullshit ?  Reason I ask is because at some point I just want to load up on TBT and walk away from this clusterfuck abortion of a market. My guess is sell any pops that appear during the actual Greek collapse.. but then I think what happens when Italy or Spain goes down ?

Hope they don't shit in their pants. It ain't about money anyway, it's about stuff.

Is it me or the selling seems "subdued". The SPX gaped down 20 at the open but it feels like the selling stopped shortly after.

He's all in, and has a pair of 2's at best.

Wow - you put him on a pair ?!!

I give him a busted straight (and a low one at that).

Either way, I call (or raise all-in).

Go ahead and buy, I say Bernank does not 'print' but just does more of the same hand holding of bond rates, zero interest, monitoring the situation blah blah,....but no diamond encrusted Tiffany trunk stuffed full of free cash.

I too think The Bernank will just do more of the same.

However, we should call it what it is:  Giving our money to the tribe.

If you understand the game (Bankers against Citizens) it's really quite straightforward.

We are being trained to expect certain patterns. Once we are considered well-enough trained, the patterns will reverse, and those blindly following expectations will be slaughtered. It's really not that hard to see.
