Spot The Odd One Out

Tyler Durden's picture


We are now T+5 from the launch of the good ship QEternity - do you know where your asset classes are?


Treasuries, EURUSD, and Oil have all retraced the entire post-FOMC move - US equities not so much...


...and perhaps as an indication of times to come for the Fed - what took EURUSD 3 days half-life and 5 days full-life to be digested took a mere 9 hours for the BoJ's latest QE8 effort this week in USD JPY...

We would have also accepted, "Boldly go where no Bitchezzzz have gone before."

Or as Rosie wrote yesterday, "There was a time, not that long ago actually, when it was the economy that drove asset prices like equity and real estate valuations.  But today, the causation is viewed, even in policy circles, as running in the opposite direction.  It is asset prices that now drive the economy."  

Or at least that is what Ben and the CBers hope.

Futures are done rolling. Good chance this last week's meltdown was caused by month-to-month rollovers.  There's a boatload of liquidity parked in the oil futures market making us pay more at the pumps than we need to but every so often they have to move their contracts or else they'll have to, God forbid, take delivery in a market with not that much demand. This time the month-to-month doorway got a little narrow. Maybe they held a bit longer than they should hoping to catch a bit more profit from the expected ramp from QEternity. Oops, sometimes it sucks to be an evil oil speculator, especially if you're not close enough to the Source to get inside info on exit strategies.

At some point this front-running is going to extrapolate to outside the virtual financial system. Got food?

Only if you have a TBTF membership card, enabling you to turn around and unload it to the FEDs balance sheet at mark-to-myth pricing for a guaranteed profit, BofA still has 260,000 year-end non-performance bonuses that it must finance.

it is only 12:52 and I am getting drunk already next to Kass's office in Sarasota.  Kass is "religiously short" and on margin obviously.  Next to Bidermann, I can think of nobody who stands to lose as much as he if the ES tests 1530-1560 before the 'lection.

Has anybody seen Corzine lately? I've been meaning to talk to him.... I need some "advice".

Saw Corzine on the beach with a semi-chubby Italian_american woman half his age.   I think some Paparazzi loaded the images to the web.  Corz' looked kind of down.

You know what? she definitely looked like "snooki" (definitely JOISEY GIRL, like ADRIANA on the Sopranos, but chubbier).   Would not hit that babe though when Lisa Falcone is alive and now available and desperately-seeking-non-Phil with the over-ride-nuptial-agreement button firmly pushed.  But what can Corz' do since MFukker got swallowed by the Whale?  He got to bottom pick the babes like the Red SOXX in Fort Myers at Babes stripper club.

This just in.  The U.S. Federal Reserve has launced a bold new program, namely HFQE (High Frequency Quantitative Easing). This program will enable the Fed to inject additional liquidty, as deemed necessary by the Federal Reserve Board chairmain, at nanosecond intervals in an attempt to address the law of diminishing returns first detailed on an obsure financial website entitled Zero Hedge....full details to follow.....

LOL. Had to log in just to up arrow that.  The fed may have to look at this, of course once they figure out how it works they would just signal QE a couple hundred times per second but withdraw the offer prior to it being utilized.  

Your comment reminds me of an article I read once mocking HFT that reccomended companys update earnings estimates on a nano-second to nano-second basis.  Tried to find it but could not, it was pretty funny.

"they would just signal QE a couple hundred times per second but withdraw the offer prior to it being utilized

My friend Ben said he is going to buy $40B a month in MBS. Now that he has given me a list, I think am going to sell some shit to raise cash and start flipping MBS to the FED.
