Stock Market QE4EVER

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024 Feb 07, 2024 - 07:37 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

Not to forget the inflation mega-trend courtesy of rampant central bank money printing to monetize government debt coupled with the fake inflation indices where up until recently the Fed had succeeded in hoodwinking the masses that US inflation was just 1%. Instead at that time I warned it was more like 4%! Now it's more like 7%. Anyway the money printing binge now totals $8.8 trillion, up from $4 trillion at the start of 2020 and down from a a peak of $9.62 trillion in the so called Taper. We saw how the taper of 2019 went which at the time I warned would eventually resolve in the Fed Balance sheet DOUBLING. of course I was not expecting it to happen the very NEXT YEAR in 2020!


As I wrote 15 ,months ago - "The bottom line is tapering is a temporary smoke and mirrors exercise that ultimately will resolve in a DOUBLING of the Fed balance sheet, that's right in the not too distant future I will be posting a chart of the Fed Balance sheet north of $16 trillion! CRACKUP BOOM HERE WE COME!"

Quantitative Tightening WAS a smoke and mirrors con trick that the lemmings swallowed, there has been NO QT! The $ 1.2 trillion of QT, that the fools in the MSM have focused upon was more then OFSET via a myriad of mechanisms foremost of which is the Reverse Repo Market that the Fed engineered to balloon to $2.6 trillion through interest rates manipulation that during 2023 drained by $1.7 trillion to finance US treasury bond purchases and so abracadabra QT of $1.2 trillion actually turned out to be net QE of at least $500 billion!

What does this mean for the stock and bond markets?

It means there is another $800 million of buying to come to US bonds which will continue to put upwards pressure on bond and stock prices well into 2024, probably into April 2024, and unless by that time there is fresh QE,the bond and stock markets could be primed for a fairly deep correction, which chimes with my existing view for a rally into April 2024. So we could see a case of Sell in April and Go Away rather than Sell in May.

So the reverse repo chart is definitely one to keep an eye on during the year.
