The Trannies Have Spread Wide Open

Tyler Durden's picture


Presented with little comment but the Dow Transports are now around 5% out of line relative to the impervious Industrials over the short-term and on a longer-term basis are sending some rather concerning signals that we have seen before...

LT Industrials vs Transports...


and short-term it is becoming quite pronounced...especially post-Draghi

"Past performance is not an indicator of future outcomes."

"Current market structure has evolved."

"Other DOW components have established power to remain decoupled."

"This time is different!"



"Ouch ... my portfoli-hole hurts."

I didn't read the headline carefully enough the first time. I thought it said "The Tyrannies Have Spread Wide Open." My first impulsive thought was to wonder who was brave enough to expose the inner workings of our government and its cronies. I'm relieved that I was mistaken. I don't think that the public could handle the truth.

Woah, woah, woah.  It really was just a misunderstanding.  The transmission had gone bad in my car, so I thought I'd fix it myself.  Looking for instructional videos, I searched for "Bad Trannies", and after the 5th video I realized they had nothing to do with car transmissions.

Looks like a year to go before the superslide if the pre-2008 divergence is anything to go by. Which it probably isn't, but still ... this can be a slow burner.

Yeah, and if that chart plays out the same way, then it would appear we're still at least a year out from the crash. 

I wil be completely insane by that point.

Funny, I'm starting to hear that from others around here too. Must be the newest version of "healthcare."

Better yet, they have to get it on paper in order to create a measurable metric.

Stupid allopaths; always substituting gimmicks in an effort to hide their lack of understanding of how to STAY healthy.

Probably depends on who wins the election.  Obama will crush all hopes of a better tomorrow from business (the people that hire, write pay checks, etc.).  Romney will get a huge bounce until reality hits home.

Yes, I have learned that the market can stay irrational much longer than I can stay sane.

The main problem is the imperfect correlation with the economy.  And that is more true now than ever with CB intervention. 

A truly free market economy / stock market would be much more fun to "play".

I seriously doubt that it will take that long this time.  We are NOT in the same condition as we were in the 06-08 drift prior to the crash, we are in a much worse position.  Trans are based in reality, Inds are manipulated HOPIUM.

Good catch.  I was just noticing this negative divergence earlier this morning.  Not bullish for equities.  Or, given the central planning, maybe it is bullish for the trannies.
