Why The Fed Can't, And Won't, Let The Stock Market Crash

When it comes to the stock market, while the biggest, and according to many only, beneficiary of the Fed's ZIRP/QE policies of the past 6 years has been the wealthiest 1%, the reality is that said top crust of US society no longer needs the S&P to continue its relentless, manipulated and centrally-planned levitation.

Between a third Hamptons residence, a 5th Ferrari, and a 7th French villa, not to mention a few tons of gold, the super wealthy have long since booked their paper profits, and transferred their "wealth" out of the intangible and into actual, physical assets.

Therefore it is not the 1% that would suffer the most should the S&P have a post-Lehman like 50%+ wipe out.........some 50% of all US pension fund assets are invested in stocks

it is the fate of future retirement funds, and in fact, the very core of the US welfare state that is at stake should there be a massive market crash. In which case what happened in Ferguson will be a polite stroll in the park compared to the chaos that would ensue should another generation of Americans wake up with half or more of their paper wealth wiped out overnight.

Its hard to understand why Carney suddenly changed his story.

UPDATED: BoE Carney Says he would not wait for real wages to turn positive before raising interest

How can Carney have any credibility if he swings the market by being dovish one day and then backtracks a few days later.

BoE's Carney says rise in real wages not pre-condition for rate hike
Carney also defended a loophole that is being exploited by Britain’s banks to duck a European cap on bonuses worth more than 100 percent of salary. They have been paying cash “allowances” to their top performers to get round the cap. The governor said that these allowances, if properly designed, could be “sensible”.

In the interview, conducted on Wednesday, Carney also said the pound’s 17 percent gain from its low in March 2013 would not prevent a rate rise. “Even with . . . that appreciation, inflation gets back to target by the end of the forecast period because slack narrows,” he said.

Next week's publication of the minutes of the Bank's August policy meeting about a tightening of monetary policy this year might show at least one policy-maker cast a first vote in favour of a rate hike, potentially putting markets back on alert.

Chart Points -- Trading Points


20 day mva 1.3411, avg daily range the past 5 days has been 59 pips and over the past 30 days 48 pips (as per our Chart Points table0

18 days between 1.3333-1.3485 and 15 days between 1.3333-1.3445 have brought the 20 daily mva within the current range.

Only 3 days have seen high below 1.34 and just barely, which for me makes this level the key one that will dictate the tone going forwards.

I am bearish along with most in the market but have not made much in the way of headway over the past 4 weeks.

UPDATE: Unites States 2y vs Fed Funds Target Rate and EURUSD (inverted Scale)
UPDATED AS OF- FRIDAY NY CLOSE: Fundamentals for Trading. EXCLUSIVE CHART: 2y vs U.S. Fed Funds Target and EURUSD (inverted scale).

The Fed has been sending split signals to the markets. On the one hand, it has been getting impatient about normalizing policy, but then the central bank do not want to get ahead of the economic recovery and cut it short. Fed Chair Yellen continues to send the message that policy is data-dependant. That means that the future path of policy is not set in stone.

The position of the 2-yr rate, above or below, the central bank target indicates what the collective wisdom of the "smart money" is for the future direction of interest rates. The differential incicates how much of a change in rates is expected.

You can see on the U.S. chart that sentiment for a significant Fed policy tightening has diminished over the past few weeks. Note also as this has happened that the USD has leveled out. We have plotted the EURUSD on an inverted scale to reflect USD rather than EUR strength. Compare this chart to the EURUSD chart (below) to get a more complete picture of the influences on this currency pair.

UPDATE: Eurozone 2y (DE) vs ECB Refi rate and EURUSD
UPDATED AS OF- FRIDAY NY CLOSE: Fundamentals for Trading. EXCLUSIVE CHART: 2y vs ECB refi rate and EURUSD

The ECB message to the markets has been that the EZ has structural weaknesses and that a lower EURUSD is desired. This process has been remarkably slow to develop, but has had a clear impact (negative) on the EUR and EZ interest rates. This is how markets are SUPPOSED to work.

Keep an eye on the EURUSD 20-day avg (1.3411). The Friday high was 1.3412.
