Is This Why We Are Rallying Today?

Tyler Durden's picture


As we noted last week, the level that would represent the same size drop as triggered globally coordinated central bank easing in November of last year, is around 1285 and sure enough we got close (1287) in futures before today's rally it really this easy?


or is this what we should expect?

I called it Friday - G8 + Obama = Monday Rally

They would have looked like total Bafoons otherwise.

"I'd say there is about a 50-50 chance that the markets will be up or down in the next 6 months"

1285 or so is the 200 dma, the 38% fib level of the ramp from last years lows and level of the first rebound in August. It will take a good effort to go below it but there is no lack of bad news to power things lower. I'm guessing it won't happen on the first try, but what do I know.

Been looking at the same thing... Looks like an early week bounce perhaps towards the 9 or 10 dma before a holiday weekend. gl

Technicals are on the "floor" -- Least path of resistance is upwards until overhead resitance is meet.  Volume will likely be on the low side.  Who wants to sell or short when technicals are this oversold.

it's undersold. Actually it's over-printed. But then, it's over-used. Then again, it's over-valued.

Anyday an article will come out of the Wall Street Journal stating the Fed is open to more easing probably to come out of the June Meeting.  The Central planners will not allow this to continue as they view it as only costing more if they wait.  Doing the right thing and letting the free market work is not even a thought of theirs.

At this point I don't think the Obama team is manipulating the data to get re-elected.  The bankstas are doing everything they can, to get him re-electedn because if the other side gets in there is chance that Ctrl-P becomes Ctrl-A.  Personally I believe the chance of the other side doing meaningful Ctrl-A is close to 0 but the banksters only like to take chances if someone else's money is on the line.

Yes, we can make as many S&P or Dow points as we like, I imagine.  It is a sham, but it is one that we are conditioned to fall for.  Markets are up, everything must be okay.  The rest of the world's economies will disagree as they have to contend with the consequences of easing.  One of these times, you will see a market-breaking action by one or more non-OECD central banks.

I continue to believe the market is still injected with an extremely high dose of QE hopium.  Spider around 1,000ish tells me people are not expecting QE.  Until then it's just a junkie crawling along the side of the road begging the dealer for more heroin.

So much has to go right including a falling USD (means Euro must rise) for this to happen.
