Blinkers and You'll Miss It
New week. New month. New quarter. New brains. New trades. New hope. Or "New balls, please" as they say at Wimbledon.
I don't have the physical energy to play tennis with markets on an every-other-day basis, sending a detailed volley back at those who think the Fed is about to pivot because of one bad datapoint. That doesn't mean the UK government can't though – they just did exactly that on tax cuts.
All I can say is re-read what I have been saying all year about this being about more than just data; and I am told every goldbug, cryptonite, bond-bubble boy, equity enthusiast, derivative devil, property shill, and commodity compere is sitting on the side-lines --bleeding out-- and is waiting for the Fed to pivot in order to go all in on the next inflationary everything asset bubble.
