This is hilarious.
Or at least…..it’s hilarious to me as – you know full well what I’ve been talking about these last few months. With only 2 or 3 days down and emerging markets hemorrhaging, currencies selling off like hotcakes, and equites taking it on the chin.
A little “wakey wakey” out there people! Anybody just “a little nervous” about what’s going on?
Gees….2 days and the sky is falling. Hello!
Well – CNBC is stumped of course, but still very, very positive about “buying the dip” and tapering “just getting started”. Uh Huh. Right..tapering as global growth / appetite for risk sets up for a major “tanking”.
The Fed will freak out sooner than later, pull taper and double QE as suggested.
EEM ( The Emerging Markets ) will be temporarily “saved” , U.S equities will rally “once again”, the U.S Dollar will continue it’s slide into the toilet, and the American people will be told “once again” that the Fed is a freaking superhero.
If you’re piecing this together at all, I hope you’ve come to realize what an impact “tapering” would have had ( I’m already talking in the past tense ) as the global “dependence” on these massive injections of liquidity has become so great – that essentially…it’s the only thing holding the house of cards up.
UPDATE: CNBC now quoting Kong with suggestion that “the Fed may need to look at “pulling back” on tapering!! But….I thought it was “pulling back on QE! – Give me a break!
I’m not putting a date on it, but as suggested here “forever” – this thing is so fragile, so dependent on stimulus, that ( in my view ) even the ridiculous “suggestion” of tapering QE could very well be the catalyst for a global move towards risk aversion.
Confirming that China’s growth is slowing, Canada pulling down GDP estimates, The EU a complete and total “disaster waiting to happen” and the U.S data so fudged…SO FUDGED it can’t even be considered relevant – what have you got?
Recovery baby…..oh ya – you bet. You buy that dip……then you keep buying.
Killing it……kiiiiillllllling it short humanity……long interplanetary travel.
