Having the 10y treasury yield on that top chart makes no sense. It should be inverse (assuming negative correlation as they both skyrocket) treasury prices and on a percentage chart. The scale is messed up using nominal S&P against bps on bond IRs.


edit: I compared SBF to the S&P it does look like equities started to outstrip the inverse bond fund late last week. The flight to bonds (as t-bonds have outperformed in july) may have been misinterpretted as a flight to safety instead of what it was, a flight from the euro. Now equities are playing catchup.

It's quite obvious that the bernak has made every market worthless for a return BUT the stock market. They have set shit up so the best return is buying and selling stocks. Period. Therefore, unless the world is destroyed by a comet or earthquake, don't look for a market crash anytime soon. The masters have seen the that.

You're right. Bernanke thinks he has us all figured out. Half of us will take his free money and buy Treasuries, the risk averse half, that will keep debt servicing costs down. The other half, the risk takers, will take the free money and jack the shit out of equities. That helps his bankster buddies who all got in at the bottom when he phoned them and told them his big QE idea, and the sheeple see Dow +++ every night on TV and flip back to American Idol.

So, let me get this straight --the same genius Bernanke who didn't see the Great Recession coming, or subprime contagion, or the futility of his QEs, is now to be relied on to suspend this

I'll take the other side of that bet.  Thank you!

Dr. Engali's picture

My stance has always been that shorting this market is a fools game and there are fewrer and fewer shorts that jump on every down tick. This will prevent a big squeeze. Everybody is on the long side begging for QE. Since everybody is long when this market does fall there won't be any shorts to speak of and it will catch everybody off guard. I have a standing bet with kito that QE3 will come before election day.

Kito  is dead set QE won't come until after the elections. My point is that there are no shorts in this market to buy back at lower levels. When this thin rolls ove it will drop like a lead balloon and the Bernank will have to print a lot more than he needs to now to catch it. Waiting too long is not an option.

Mr. Bernanke is playing a very dangerous game of "shepparding' money only where he wants it to go. He saw QEs 1 and 2 mostly get hoovered up by commodities and PMs and that put a big damper on the recovery. Now he has enlisted Blythe and Co. to help direct the flow of ZIRP induced cash only to the 2 places he has deemed useful. Treasuries to keep his and the POTUS's massive debt costs down, and as Tyler would say the Russel 2000 to keep the well heeled spending due to wealth effect.

The USD/JPY; DOWN on an up day in the stock market? THAT'S retarded.

I see MASSIVE similarities to 2000, when profits were crap, and stocks shot up like they are today; no one buying anything, massive unemployment, and euphoria in the stock market - THAT'S retarded.

Long the market? Either you're a person named Claire Voyant, a Goldmann Sucks insider, and/or have tight stops; this suckwad of a market could turn on the slightest..slightest rumor.....or even.....God forbid....TRUTH.

I am in full agreement this market is completely retarded and you can't rely on the old rules. My point is that every time the shorts jump on this market ( and believe me I would like to) Ben squeezes them out. My presonal belief is that this market should be trading between DOW 4000 and DOW 6000 right now.
