    10 yr. Treasury hits 1.74 this early AM. Nasdaq futures dump again just like yesterday, but then when yields stabilize, stocks turn. As usual old econ. stocks higher this morning, but here is the question? At what level will higher rates affect almost all stocks? right now there is just so much money sloshing around that it just goes from one stock area to the other. When does it go into risk averse instruments???

    You'll have to start asking "who is doing the buying?"

        Okay I could not help myself, but does this video make some sort of a comeback from 12 years ago? Just change the names, the amount of the money and some of the assets?

          Biden speaks around 330pm, calls Harris "President Harris"....then the market tanks at the close. Coincidence?

            I've never seen an idiot get such a gift with the pandemic and all and a very generous monetary policy in place to send both the markets and economy to the freakin moon and completely f vck it all up. I know some will come on here and say the POTUS has little effect on the markets and economy but that is ********....the number # 1 thing with corporations(economy) and investors(market) is having confidence....What you are seeing more than anything else with the market is lack of confidence in the economy, the future of taxes and a senile old assh#le who doesn't know where the f vck he is half the time...plain and simple.

              SLR ending this month means 1.1 trillion pumped out of banks. Also means negative short term rates and repo rates are already negative....ERRRRRYTHING gonna go up, stocks, bonds, bullion, and crypto...who's starting the Chatter Hedge Fund?

              As some of us have been looking down the road and wondering what happens when all the free money dries up, it appears the market might be doing the same. Lately when the 10 yr yield has risen, the high flying tech stocks would get trashed. When the 10yr. yield went lower the high flying tech stocks would rally like crazy. Well the 10 yr yield has gone straight down this week to a current 1.60 and the high flying tech stocks are getting trashed. Perhaps a shift in the wind? Just pontificating.

                People forget that the market is usually priced in a couple months in advance of what's happening presently....in other words I believe the highs we see over the last month or so and the recent chop is a telling sign...The whole SLR retraction a couple weeks ago might add a nice shot of fuel here and there but there is a reason we see a hissy fit everytime Powell and Yellin are mentioned....more and more people aren't fooled by the bullch!t...

                All indicators point to pan sell-off.

                I've heard recently that selling can spike near the end of quarters due to large ETF's/Mutual Funds selling off before reallocating assets? Anyone else ever heard of this? If so maybe this would be a decent time to buy back in to large caps? At this point I'm almost afraid to try anything else....my account balance keeps making new lower lows...:dunno:

                We've now had 3 "oil events" in about 10 days... Houthi attack on KSA, "wedged" ship in Suez, and now Iran fires missile at Israeli owned container ship.

                  Index funds rebalance at the end of each quarter. It can lead to selling or buying.

                  Your post #929 completely missed the point. First of all, stimulus programs are part of fiscal policy, not monetary. Secondly, the heavy pumping up of M2 over a period many months dating back to 45 has created enormous inflation risk. The spike of the 10-year is endemic to the discussion. When the yield on the riskless 10-year rises as it has, and esp with valuations at the lofty levels they were, it draws money away from stocks, esp dated assets like the Nasdaq.

                  Arguing that Biden is a doofus for “missing out” on a can’t-miss market opportunity shows a severe lack of understanding on your part. This would be happening regardless who was in office unless you imagine a scenario where stimulus payments were ground to a halt. That ain’t happening anytime soon under any scenario.
