Why U.S. stocks can NEVER have a serious correction

U.S. stocks have become a ‘safety trade’

There’re a lot of liquid assets swirling around the world, waiting to move as the market narrative shifts.

Traditionally, when things get scary out there, the typical “risk-off” trade is to dump stocks and rotate into safer assets like Treasury securities and cash.

But within big asset classes like stocks, you’ll find that some stocks are “riskier” than others. For example, developed market stocks are considered more stable than emerging market stocks. Large-cap stocks are considered more liquid than small-cap stocks.

And so when you think of stocks that way, “risk-off” may actually mean global equity investors are rotating into more stable stocks (like U.S. stocks) and larger cap stocks (like U.S. stocks). These characteristics define the S&P 500 (^GSPC).

Fundstrat’s Tom Lee thinks this dynamic may explain much of the sharp market rallywe’ve seen in recent days despite the persistence of disconcerting headlines (e.g. coronavirus, U.S. political uncertainty).

“There is just not enough S&P 500 to go around,” Fundstrat’s Tom Lee said in a note to clients on Thursday. “The S&P 500 is about $25 trillion in market cap and there is $300 trillion of global household liquid assets.


Trillions of dollars are looking for somewhere to go. (Fundstrat)

Lee also notes that U.S. stocks further benefit from being heavily exposed to the U.S. economy where the data continues to improve as the rest of the world stagnates.

“Thus, picture the panic as money leaves riskier regions and looks for the U.S.,” Lee said. “This causes the S&P 500 to spike.”

Lee’s thesis that U.S. equities have become a “safety trade” is confirmed by global asset fund flow data.

According to Jefferies’ Global Asset Fund Flows Tracker: “In the week 30 Jan-5 Feb, a resumption of strong buying of US equities (+US$14.0 billion, a 7-week high) dominated global equity fund inflows (+US$14.1 billion). However, [emerging market] equity outflows accelerated.“

Re Republicans Versus Democrats? I Made Up New Names, That Better Describe Them

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 17:05 on February 11, 2020  

The Democrats have really screwed themselves real good. I’ll bet money, many democrats are embarrassed and are rotating out of that pro global commie type party. And all the past people that stopped voting decades ago, came into the Republican party.

Re the very good massive Divisiveness evolving, the “smart separating from the diabolical” another one?  I would describe the parties a few different ways.

Originally I called it the Practicals’ versus the Emotionals.

Another view, The Boys&Girlymen versus the Men.

The latest? The Rural versus the City Folks, or.

The Silent Majority, versus the Vocal Minority.

Now guess which is which? 🙂

FYI, I won’t be posting for a while. Taking a break.

I’m hopeful for the shares as well … MACD leaving a lot of room for the HUI to run now. Also the quarterly reports should help. Most producing gold companies should be making some good scratch.

Maybe we’re living on a world where gold companies can succeed! 🙂

Despite Powell and his B.S. I’m liking the close in the shares. Not so much in the metals and it surely doesn’t mean we’ll rebound tomorrow, but the shares look pretty good considering the performance of the metals…

Thanks for posting Egon, pretty sure I live on another planet as well.

Unfortunately, I’m at work so I can’t watch the video right now, but can’t wait to watch when I get home and find out what planet we live on! 🙂

This doesn’t even make the first page on ZH…but who cares about liquidity anyway? :)

Fed Injects $68 Billion In Liquidity As Third Oversubscribed Term-Repo Confirms Liquidity Shortage Accelerates

The liquidity crisis that continues to percolate just below the surface of the market and has clogged up the critical plumbing within the US financial system, is getting worse, not better.

Gold And US Dollar seem to be, Moving Up and Down Together, Huh?

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 15:27 on February 11, 2020  

On a three month view.

USD up since Dec 19, DOWN today:


Gold up since Dec ’19, down today:


>>>Its the same on a 1.5 years view:

Dollar up left to right:


Gold up left to right:


>>Its the same on a FIVE year view. Lower left to upper right.

US Dollar:




Whats the answer? Dollars and Gold are both in favor, so far. However if the Dopey/Dollar that provides Dopey/Prices, starts FALLING!!?? Gold will get a huge tailwind.

This is simple crap. The producers in most other commodity businesses like Oil and Food etc CAN over produce if enabled with high prices. But Gold simply can’t be over produced. Granted higher prices can only encourage selling of scrap or existing physical. But generally people tend to hold on when prices are rising. I see that with real estate. T Boon Pickens once said something like…”Why should I sell my one million barrels of oil today when I could sell it later at higher prices.”

Yeah. This makes me think we might be in for another year of more of the same.

Hope not, but the game feels the same.

HUI down a bit now, but SM has rolled over.

I don’t know. PM’s getting hit when the Fed head speaks is pretty much par for the course.

Ballinger on the 30 yr.

There is one chart in all of the financial universe that tells me what the smartest people in the world are doing with their “big wallets” and that is the chart of long term bond yields.

If copper has a Phd. in economics, then bond yields would be the academic masters that wrote the books that copper studied en route to its degree. Long-term yields are different than short term yields because the former is demand driven while the latter is policy driven or “administered”. The Federal Reserve maestros can play Pac-Man with short term interest rates, but they can’t with long term yields because over the long term, yields will move to levels governed by FEAR. And it is fear and fear alone that drives the risk-free rate of return for holders of all the wealth in the world.

Accordingly, it is this next chart whose eardrum-splitting air raid siren is drowning out the blips and beeps of the copper chart or the ding-dong of the stock chart without a trace of indecision or reflection. Long term yields are moving LOWER and they are moving lower FAST and that, my friends, reeks of a sense of urgency verging on panic and it began long before the coronavirus arrived. The chart below is truly “The Great Dichotomy”.It is this Great Dichotomy that terrifies me and the one chart that should be required reading for everyone participating in the world of financial speculation and a rote memory prerequisite for the all serious investors.

I looked at the biggest manufacturing cities in China Guangdong and Fujian as well as big cities Hong Kong, Beijing.
If these cities go into lock down then I’d see a concern for interfering with world wide exports and trade as well as the possibility of spreading it globally.
People learned a lot from the mistakes from the Spanish Flu of 1918.
Between military ships during the war and trade ships as well as other forms of travel and neglect city’s as well as military it spread everywhere.
They also exposed visitors of sick not masking them getting them sick spreading to their family’s and towns.
Much due diligence is being done to prevent the spread.
I’d be interested to know more about the economic consequences globally as well as the stock market.
Towns did run out of food.
Tragedy from neglectful leaders as few looked after the children who lost their parents because few are hero’s in a real bad situation and no one rescued them for fear of getting sick took them in or food when parents down in the hospital or died.

Today is the PEAK of the optimism that the virus has PEAKED.

Jay Powell is speaking to Congress today and tomorrow.

Generally not a good thing for pm’s but almost always great for stocks.

He’s already said he’s “monitoring Coronavirus closely” translation: I stand ready to pour printed cash into the stock market. Course, that’s naturally bad for pm’s right?
