The Jackson Hole Jawbone: A Good Spot To Be Buying Long Bonds

Takeaway: The world will be reminded of reality on Friday when US GDP comes in at 1%.

In case you missed It...

 

BREAKING: Fed’s Fischer Signals Close To Targets On Jobs and Inflation (ex-GDP)

 

Yeah. Definitely. As a central-planning smoother of the US economy, you definitely have to back out 1% GDP if you’re going to proclaim to have nailed it. Reminder: if they actually use their “target” (+2% as the Deflator) real GDP will fall closer to 0% than rise to +2-3%.

 

But have no fear, the latest Fed forecast is here! Fischer “expects GDP to accelerate in the next few quarters”… which is almost mathematically impossible if inflation continues to rise (in rate of change terms) and real consumption slows from its cycle peak.

 

Good luck with that!

 

That's why this is a good spot to be buying bonds (and stocks that look like bonds) ahead of Jackson Hole, as the world will be reminded of the 1% USA GDP reality on Friday (GDP report). The risk range on the 10-year US Treasury is 1.48-1.61%.

CHART OF THE DAY: Dispelling The Myth That Everyone Is Bearish

Editor's Note: Below is a brief excerpt and chart from today's Early Look written by Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough. Click here to learn more.

 

"... 'Bearish positioning' means the 1-year z-score is A) negative and/or B) really negative (i.e. when it’s more negative than a -2.0x). US Dollar and British Pound have 1-year z-scores of -0.8x and -2.5x, respectively, as of last week.

 

So what the heck does it all mean? At 11 VIX can stocks never go down as long as GDP isn’t greater than 2%, but not less than 1%? How about long-term bonds and their “safe-yield” proxies – is it over for them, but never for high-beta-low-quality?"
