We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Fed – We Make Money from Nothing

Neither the Fed’s weekly real time balance sheet data, nor its slightly lagged data on the condition of the US banking system yet shows any sign of an imminent end to the stock market rally. On the other hand, there’s plenty of evidence of an entrenched mania. And they usually don’t end well. Non-subscribers, click here for access.

We can deduce that the fuel for this rally has several sources. They’re not finite. This is a matter of where there’s a will there’s a way. Non-subscribers, click here for access.

Some of it is bond portfolio liquidation. Some is margin. Some is foreign money inflows. None of it is coming from the Fed. This is all about animal spirits, and the power of animal spirits to create money from nothing and stocks for free. Just borrow the money into existence. Or move it from something else, or somewhere else. That can go on and on until the mass psychology exhausts itself. When that happens, it usually does so with a vengeance.

This process is sustainable until it isn’t. We, like the Fed, are data dependent, and that data includes both the liquidity data and the technical analysis data that I cover in the Technical Trader reports. So far neither set of data is screaming “It’s over!” Until they show signs of topping out simultaneously, we have to let it ride. The theater is crowded, but there’s no point in screaming “Fire!” yet. Non-subscribers, click here for access.
