Oversold + Central Banks=Rally

We told you to expect a rally/bounce from some of the most stretched, extended and oversold conditions we have seen in a long while. But it is again “V” shaped as the central banks do not stop and do not stop talking. Since the lows:

We got 3 Fedheads out yapping about not lowering QE and actually hinting at more QE. That turned the markets to the second.

China adding another $30 billion stimulus.

Japan hinting at a 25% stock rebalancing in the pension fund(because Japanese markets have done so well past 25 years.)

ECB saying “buying” will start soon…

Which lead to the rumor that turned the futures this morning that the ECB is looking to buy corporate bonds in the secondary market. Of course, Reuters kinda sorta already walking that one back.

Markets are now, already into a massive area of resistance in which massive breakdowns occurred. We expect some choppiness in these areas but in a market that continues to be juiced by the few, one never knows.

The lows look good for now as the powers that be woke up and recognized that things are getting hairy and that there is an election ahead. “What? You don’t think they are rigging things?

Economies around the globe are sinking. Credit spreads have been blowing out. Demand has been heading south…but markets love bad news as it gives the boys the excuse to continue their money printing.

The Obama Administration “Control” Chart

Random whining and oh yeah…a little on the market!

A few complaints…which will lead me to the market.

Evidence that the nuthouse is still full.

Venezuela elected to the U.N. security council.

Dems continue to lie and complain that there isn’t enough money for the CDC to fight Ebola. “Not enough money” and Washington do not go hand in hand as government spending is at an all-time record and that doesn’t even include deficit spending.

Speaking of Ebola…there is no downside to a ban on travel yet the powers continue to do the opposite. What gives?

Yes…and Ebola czar that knows nothing about Ebola…nothing about medicine…nothing about health care…but knows everything about spin. This dude was hired for one thing…politics…reverse the poll numbers that shows this admninistration again behind the curve on reacting to things.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and mortgage lenders are nearing an agreement that would lower barriers and restrictions on borrowers with weak credit. After 5 years of the Fed bubbling up asset prices with their artificial rigging of markets, NOW they are going to lower the bar for subprime. As usual, horrible timing and lessons not learned.

Speaking of the FED, we told you to expect the Fed to start intervening as they have targeted market drops over the past few years. Every time markets went into correction, they started the yapping which led to higher amounts of printed money. The fed came out in droves as 3 fedheads came out and stated not only should we stop the lowering of QE but that we should be starting a new round of QE. This juiced the markets. In fact, you can time the market’s move to the minute.

Markets were stretched and extended to the downside as much as possible in the short run…which led to the short covering jam to the upside. WE EXPECT SOME MORE UPSIDE but are skeptical about how much. On Friday, with the Dow up 260, the Russell was actually down…so we may already be back to the divergences that hinted at an impending top. Over time, price will meet up with the now declining 50 day moving average. Of course, first, any upside has to meet the longer term 200 day moving average. We will know a lot more on how and where this first move off a low acts into resistance.

We wanted to leave you with a line we coined in the last bear market. Bear market rallies are sharp, quick, make you feel good, get people talking about it, suck you in and bury you soon after. Just in case we are going into something of consequence, we believe that line should be remembered.

The Fed has been wise and courageous with it’s policy!

The Fed has been wise and courageous with its policy. No…we don’t believe that. Lloyd Blankfein does. Yes…the Head of Goldman says the Fed is wise and courageous. MEMO TO LLOYD…courageous is our soldiers who head into harm’s way every day. There is nothing courageous about a few unelected people who press buttons on computers to print trillions of dollars to save the market’s and your ass.

As we told you here, we expected the Fed to intervene as they refuse to let markets be free. They know markets are now used to the drug of printed money and cannot stand on their own two feet. They saw the 17 and 20% drops the last two times there was no printing and they see the recent action as they have been testing the lowering of QE. The Fed started their intervention by sending out Williams and Bullard to state we should stop the lowering of QE and indeed, look to another QE. Markets reacted twice and now we get the pre-market pop. We do not want to see what the market looks like if it ever starts ignoring the money printing.

We told you yesterday that markets looked like they were trying to carve out a low and we think they have. Two days of huge reversals, two days of oputperformance by the smalls,trans,semis and others, and two days of the Fed has done the trick. Keep in mind, tons of technical damage has been done. We are always ready to expect the unexpected but we do not believe this will be a straight up affair. We do not expect an “A” type rally but more of a “C”! We expect continued whippiness. (Is that a word?)There is no way of knowing if this is THE low but we now expect the Fed to be market friendly and election friendly on Oct. 29. They may even go back on their word of stopping QE completely…in which we expect markets to be happy with.

If the lower odds chance that the market just turns tail again, look out!
