Yesterday the market was well on its way to considerably lower prices for most of the day. As I said in the afternoon update however, I felt that they'd probably try and make a bit of a stand and bring us up a bit the closer we got to the close. Sure enough, I must have gotten lucky as they moved the market well off the lows, and in the last hour, they even rescued the 50 day moving average at the 2098 level. In fact so "amazing" is this market, that after being as low as 2087, they brought it right back and planted it smack-on the 50 day. Just like magic.

Will They Do More QE?

Pull up a chair and let’s chat folks.  This is going to be an interesting letter on a lot of levels, so let’s get started.

Everyone that has any interest in finance knows that the Federal Reserve has had a program in place called Quantitative Easing for the past 5 years. For those of you who don’t understand what it is, the basics are that the Fed’s have printed up money and then used that money to buy Treasuries from the Government and to soak up toxic assets like bad mortgages from the banks. In doing so, it has had the effect of constantly lowering interest rates, since they don’t have to raise rates to “lure” folks into buying the T bills. The Fed’s would buy them at any price, and any rate of return.

But the offshoot of QE was that because they were buying up toxic crap from the banks, AND because Treasuries are also bought from the “primary dealers” ( the big banks) the banks got tons and tons of money to go play cowboy in the asset markets. With virtually zero percent money for the big companies to borrow and buy back their own stock, and all the bank money sloshing around, we’ve had the best bull market that fake money can buy. Stocks are up gigantically since the beginning of the program.

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new week. I certainly hope your weekend was a fun one. Down here on the Gulf coast of Florida, we're still running way above average temp wise, as we continue to be at the 90 degree level. It's been so hot for so long that the first time the temp dips down into the 70's everyone's going to have to wear down parkas.

So this week kicks off the real beginning of earnings season. We're going to start hearing from the heavyweights, and as I said in the newsletter, the extent of their "fudging" will determine what the markets do next.
