Fed fades, rates fall, stocks/bonds/commodities all ramp – so easy a #GrowthSlowing guy can do it!


The 10yr Treasury yield is all the way back down to 1.61% this morning (10s/2s back down to 84bps) – that’s 6x in 16 months that you had an outstanding buying opportunity in long-term bonds and/or stocks that look like bonds. Now we go back to no Fed to stress over as both the slowing economic data and Q3 earnings season take over.

CHART OF THE DAY: Dispelling The Myths Of Consensus Orthodoxy

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.


"... ‘Oh, but I’m not buying Utilities, KM. My orthodox theory of finance says to buy “cheap” stocks and sell “expensive” ones.’ Ok, I hear you brother. But expensive just got more expensive and cheap just got cheaper (again).


That’s right too. For the month of SEP, where the call was to fade the rate hike fear:

  1. Utilities (XLU) are +3.55% for the month-to-date and now leading the league (again) at +17.8% YTD
  2. Financials (XLF) are down -2.32% for the month-to-date and still the cellar dweller at +0.67% YTD

Don’t be “up 0.67% YTD.” That is not cool."

Why Gold Is Up 26% Year-To-Date (1 Chart & 1 Video)

Takeaway: One reason why Gold is up 26% year-to-date is the breakdown in the belief that central planners can bend and smooth economic gravity.

According to Gallop polls, there has been a 14-year slide in confidence that the "Fed leader will do the right thing for the economy?" 


Shocker, we know...

Fed head Janet Yellen did little to inspire confidence at yesterday's FOMC press conference with statements like this:

  • “Asset values aren't out of line with historical norms.”
  • “The Fed wants the expansion to last as long as possible.”
  • “There is little risk to falling behind the curve in the near future so the FOMC can be gradual in its rate hikes.”

What Does the Fed's Confidence Crisis have to do with Gold?


As Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough points out in the video below, "Gold loves the blowup of the central planning belief system."



Make no mistake, the central planning #BeliefSystem failing. And fast.
