Bill Gross: "The World's Central Banker" Has Flatlined U.S. Economic Growth





"...there clearly is a Yellen put, but over the last two meetings it's been extended to include global risk markets... I think they're acknowledging that the Fed is the world's global central banker."

"The Damage Could Be Massive" - How Central Banks Trapped The World In Bonds





Yields on $7.8 trillion of government bonds have been driven below zero by worries over global growth, forcing investors looking for income to flood into debt with maturities of as long as 100 years. Worse still, as Bloomberg reports, central banks’ policy is exacerbating matters, as the unprecedented debt purchases to spur their economies have soaked up supply and left would-be buyers with few options. This has driven the 'duration' - or risk sensitivity - of the bond market to a record high, meaning, as one CIO exclaimed, even with a small increase in rates "the positions are so huge that the damage can be massive... People are complacent."

Bill Gross Unleashes Tweetstorm On Five "Investor Delusions" Soon To Be Exposed





In what has so far been a strange day, in which one headline by an "anonymous diplomatic source" and unconfirmed by the Russian energy ministry has pushed stocks from red on the day back to highs for the year, the latest surprise came from Bill Gross who moments ago broke into a "tweetstorm" to lay out what he see as the latest set of investor delusions.

Bill Gross : "Negative Rates Destroy Savers, The Bedrock Of Capitalism", Larry Fink Agrees





... consider mom and pop and other people who read Barron’s. They are saving for retirement and to put their kids through college. They might have depended on a historic 8%-like return from stocks and bonds. Well, sorry. When interest rates get to zero—and that isn’t the endpoint; they could go negative—savers are destroyed. And savers are the bedrock of capitalism. Savers allow investment, and investment produces growth.

"Risk Off" - Global Stocks Slide As Yen Surges To 17 Month High; Bund Yields Plunge





The market's slumberous levitation of the past month, in which yesterday's -0.3% drop was the second largest in 4 weeks and in which the market had gone for 15 consecutive days without a 1% S&P 500 move (in March 2015 the sasme streak ended at day 16) may be about to end, after an overnight session, the polar opposite of yesterday's smooth sailing, which has seen a sudden return of global risk off mood.

Payrolls Rise 215K In March, Beat Expectations As Average Hourly Earnings, Unemployment Rise





And so the confusion remains: why did Yellen go uber dove three days ahead of a day in which the BLS reported that in March not only were 215K jobs created, more than the consensus 205K, if below last month's 245K, but in which average hourly earnings rebounded a solid 0.3%, above the 0.2% expected, and well above last month's -0.1% decline.

Gross To Central Banks: "Get Global Growth Moving Now, Or Else"





"The reality is this. Central bank polices consisting of QE’s and negative/artificially low interest rates must successfully reflate global economies or else. They are running out of time. Or else what? Or else markets and the capitalistic business models based upon them and priced for them will begin to go south. Capital gains and the expectations for future gains will become Giant Pandas – very rare and sort of inefficient at reproduction."

Bill Gross Previews The Financial Apocalypse: "The Classical Economic Model Has Reached A Dead End"





"central bankers seem ever intent on going lower, ignorant in my view of the harm being done to a classical economic model that has driven prosperity – until it reached a negative interest rate dead end and could drive no more."

How The Pros Do It: Tepper Added 75% To Longs After Saying "Now A Good Time To Take Money Off The Table"





Back in September, David Tepper told BBG TV that "it might be a good time to take money off the table." That's what he said. What did he do? According to his latest 13F as the market was surging in the final quarter of 2015, Tepper was busy buying. So busy in fact, that he took his total long notional exposure to $5 billion an increase of 75%, in the process adding 40% to his longs.

Buyer's Remorse? Axel Merk Warns "The Fed Doesn't Have A Clue!"





"The Fed doesn't have a clue!" - We allege that not only because the Fed appears to admit as much, but also because our own analysis leads to no other conclusion. With Fed communication in what we believe is disarray, we expect the market to continue to cascade lower - think what happened in 2000. To understand what's unfolding we need to understand how the Fed is looking at the markets, and how the markets are looking at the Fed.
