Russ Certo: "Twister"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

From Gleacher's Russ Certo

Twister

I don’t know where to begin and have quite deliberately been aspiring to not bombard distribution list “noise” of the latest iteration in Greece, Munich, or Washington.  There are so many touch points to discuss that I’ll merely just attempt to address MAJOR themes as I see them.  Micro easy to fill in from here.

Zero jobs and a tar and feather emotion filled CNBC search and destroy mission on who to blame.  FHA suing 12 banks in front of a Presidential speech on job creation.  One judge in Europe can decide Germany’s support for EFSF.  European bourses down near 4% and European peripheral PIIGS spreads 15 bps to 25 bps wider.  And the ZERO jobs report.  What will the Fed or the Administrations response to optics of zero job growth?  Spare you 25 line item reports of global market developments. 

What are the implications of a zero jobs report?  I think it is fair to deduce that some percentage of the investment community will (or has) extrapolated that zero job growth and less than lubricated credit conditions and risk market framework, statistically increase the chances of Fed operation twist.  This concept was born out of Sack at the Fed and has been reinforced in popular press.  Less is more and more is less.  Less jobs mean more Fed help.  http://www.zerohedge.com/article/brian-sack-hints-what-qe3-will-look-discloses-fed-has-200-more-duration-risk-normal.

What is twist?  We know it is a prospective transformation of Fed balance sheet whereby selling shorter maturity debt to purchase and impact longer term debt.  But is twist QE3?  Who cares?  One thing is for sure that policymakers increasingly don’t want to be pinned or associated with incremental EXPLICIT policy.

Why would you want to semantically define a series of quantitative numbers of failed policies?  QE3, QE99 bottles of beer on the wall.  Does that fan 98 bottles of ineffective policy?  By virtue of having another number does that mean the underestimation framework of a previous number?

In some way the FED washed its hands during Jackson Hole speech when it LINKED monetary policy to fiscal policy or fiscal policy limitations.  Read the speech AGAIN as it is one of the most deliberate speeches I have EVER read from a Fed Chairman and not as surmised by the popular press.  Be a responsible citizen and read it yourself AGAIN.  The word “fiscal” is used 15 more times than “monetary” so what is a Chairman to do?  http://www.thestreet.com/story/11231932/1/text-of-bernankes-jackson-hole-speech.html.

New bond purchases won’t be fashionable or received well.  Rates and repo are near zero and constrained by lower boundaries.  Fed’s balance sheet is at previous unacceptable levels.  There is less of a penchant for push on string monetary AND fiscal policies.  So, twists, printings and usage of FX swap lines, tweaking on interest on reserves seem to be the order of the day. 

Maybe unprecedented COORDINATION of monetary policy with fiscal policy would be stimulative.  Maybe the Fed lends credence to housing reform mandates that are traditionally under the guise of Congress or quasi-government guaranteed sponsored entities.  Maybe, the Fed twists and co-horts in effort to lend balance sheet to housing affordability goals.  Unconventional. 

In fact, QE3 SHOULD take the form of the Fed having a 3 day offsite teach in with other branches of Government.  COMMUNICATION with stakeholders in government like Congress, Treasury, Comptroller of Currency, FDIC, HUD, leaders of banks, mortgage companies and business interests.  What the market is looking for is COMMUNICATION between stewards.  This alone should encourage resolve, incentives, confidence, less uncertainly, productivity, uniformity and an EASING of collective psyche. 

Forget twists, and other policy minutia which REWARD poor decision making, leadership, and the current lack of communication and, hence, capital flight and investment valuation decisions globally in efforts to seemingly futilely preserve capital.   Hello gold and Swiss Franc!!!!!

The removal of daily debilitating geo-political uncertainty and miss-allocation or inefficient allocation of resources and intellectual capital could be a quantitative easing in and of itself.  Let’s hold that off-site with a few economics books, public speaking books, philosophy books and a calculator. 

In practical terms, the market has quantified the increased probability of a “twist” as it may be the most feasible, acceptable, political outcome of a zero jobs report and just maybe the linkage of prospective housing affordability goals optimized by pegged mortgage rates outcome of twists. 

The market, or better the 2yr/30yr, spread is already doing the work.  Since this time YESTERDAY morning, this spread has flattened by a whopping 25 basis points.  The market anticipates the Fed conclusion to the print, compresses and reaches for yield, and yearns for the efficient preservation of itself from the inefficient previous policy made bottlenecked constructs.

Zero point Zero.

Tyler, please stop pushing the CHF, forward contracts on USD/CHF and EUR/CHF are getting too fucking expensive.

Why would somebody buy the CHF anyway? The SNB is sitting on hundreds of billions of fx reserves + We have a real estate bubble (real estate funds showing +/- 4% intraday, wtf??) + UBS and CS (amounting for ~ 800 % of swiss GDP) are on the verge of collapse.

Buy GOLD + SILVER, bitchez.

yep, and you are now using tyler's analysis, too!  but to currency traders, the swissie seems pretty strong, for now, and my unenlightened guess is that the SNB is not strong enuf (due to the rel size of the swiss econom?) to deal with it as the other fiats use it in their race to the bottom.

re this essay:

In fact, QE3 SHOULD take the form of the Fed having a 3 day offsite teach in with other branches of Government.

this sermonizing is, unfortunately, and meaning no disrespect to r_cert0, disinformation.

Or maybe we sould just close the fed, shut down the stock markets, let all the giant banks fail, let all the insolvent fortune 500 corporations that exist on paper crash and burn, and value our currency on something of real worth.

Then we end welfare, SS, and all government programs letting each locality figure  out how to deal with its citizens. f Detroit can't figure out how to work without turning into Ruwanda then that is not the fault of anyone in Nebraska.

The solution is massive decentralization and the spreading of power.

Growth stocks like CRM are still up 400% off the lows and trading with a PE ratio of 580, yet the worst news in 3-years can't knock it down.

Okay maybe it's an academic point, but in my opinion, Twist is not QE. Fed assets aren't increased.

If the Fed sells short-dated Treasurys and buys long-dated Treasurys, the main direct effect is to push others out of long-dated Treasurys and into short-dated Treasurys.

But I prefer though to think of the Fed and Treasury as a unit. Let's face it that's how they act. When Treasury is net selling ~$100b of Treasurys a month, and the Fed is net buying ~$20b a month (to replace maturing agencies), then the Fed/Treasury complex is net selling ~$80b a month of Treasurys (plus ~$20b a month of agencies, in the sense that when the Fed doesn't roll over it increases the net supply).

That money has to come out of other assets, or from the growth of the broad money supply. This is how deficits make the economy spin its wheels going nowhere. Twist just changes the composition of Fed/Treasury net selling, so that it's very heavily weighted to short-dated Treasurys. I don't see why that's such a big diff.

QE is a different story. With QE the Fed absorbs Treasury's net selling. During QE2 the Fed/Treasury complex was net selling only ~$5b a month of Treasurys. There's a much bigger difference between net selling of $5b vs $80b than there is between differing compositions of $80b.

Wow. I was floored when I learned that the treasury could sell bonds through primary dealers, then those dealers would (were required to) buy what was not sold and sell them to the FED. I was floored. It changed my world to know this was going on. In my understanding of twist, I now learn that shit like this has been normal since at least the 1960s, kiting checks and keeping the money moving to disguise insolvency is old news. I am again floored at how ignorant I have been. I try hard, I am motivated, and just good old fashioned curious and interested. But I am still uncovering stuff. I am not the sharpest tack in the pack, but folks, if I am still uncovering stuff, and worried I am spending too much time doing it; Joe and Joesphine six pack are screwed. They always were. We call them sheep, we diagnose them with disorders, it really isn't fair to them. The rabbit hole runs deep and the implications are enormous to digest.

This can drag on much longer than any of us realize because it has BEEN DRAGGING ON. They are gaming this broken system and will not willingly let it go for a new one for nothing.

Read the speech AGAIN as it is one of the most deliberate speeches I have EVER read from a Fed Chairman and not as surmised by the popular press.

I agree. If ever Bernanke was surrendering and passing the buck to Congress, this speech was it. I still fail to see how Wall Street economists interpreted his words as a fait accompli of QE something. As for Twist, or Torque, (or whatever label you want to put on the process of squeezing grandpa’s life savings out of him), how does selling or reducing repurchases of short term Treasuries support the Fed’s commitment to keep short term interest rates near zero?

Maybe unprecedented COORDINATION of monetary policy with fiscal policy would be stimulative?  Maybe the Fed lends credence to housing reform mandates that are traditionally under the guise of Congress or quasi-government guaranteed sponsored entities? Maybe, the Fed twists and co-horts in effort to lend balance sheet to housing affordability goals?  Unconventional.

I still think it’s damn interesting that Goldman gave no serious credibility to any truly innovative version of what future stimulus might look like in their Post Jackson Hole analysis.  All they could see for miles and miles was more action in the Treasury Securities markets. What vision these masters of the financial universe have. The kind of narrow vision we don’t need. The kind of vision you get looking through holes you’ve drilled through other people’s heads.

Wall St at this point knows only 1 thing, 'Hand us more free money' and their vision is looking thru a pinhole in a piece of cardboard.

How all these Wall St morons concluded from Bernanks last TWO faceplants over the last month and a half as being 'OH goody, he said hes for sure handing us vast amounts more free money!' is totaly baffling.
