01[11:51] {@Threei}  Quantitative easing is officially over in the US and global markets are digesting the Fed's very well-telegraphed move. Meanwhile, US GDP may be good or not so good, depending on your analysis. German October CPI data suggest that Europe is nowhere near getting uninflation under control
[11:54] {nemo} that's probably  the bottom in FB, 76.8 retrace of that swing low to the recent ATH
[11:56] {dino} lol "un"inflation, they are afraid to speak the truth....deflation
[11:59] {nemo} There's no uninflation...I watch containers in the grocery store get smaller all the time...Electricity just went up 37%.  I see clothes prices going much bullshit
[12:00] {cosmo} they once said: Dis-inflation....fwiw
[12:00] {nemo} FB @ inflection point
[12:01] {nemo} spy trying to get to resistance above 199
[12:01] {RonS} down south they say datinflation...
[12:05] {cosmo} so what would be the best deflation plays?
[12:06] {dino} don't think usa has that problem cosmo
[12:07] {nemo} Yeah, it's a lie of statistics
[12:07] {nemo} THere's no deflation
[12:07] {dino} but yuo would short hard assets, or mining stocks, etc
[12:10] {nemo} IWM looks like it's gonna break higher

Oct 29 2104

Another fantastic day with abundant and juicy winners. 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, VXX, FB, GLD, what have you. Traders' market.

Close Market Snapshot US Indices
Wed, 29 Oct 2014 15:48 PM EST

- Dow Jones -0.1%
- S&P500 -0.5%
- Nasdaq -0.3%

US indices are volatile after the FOMC, falling over 0.5% in the first hour after statement release before reverting toward unchanged heading into the close. Basic materials names and gold miners are the clear laggards on the stronger USD implications of the less dovish Fed, while Financials have generally been bid.

Fixed-Income: US treasuries are sharply lower, particularly on the shorter end and the belly of the curve, after the FOMC announced the conclusion of QE3 with the final $15B taper. Accompanying positive comments on labor and household spending also bode well for the eventual tightening, even though the statement maintained "considerable time" language and the Fed funds futures are still not tipping a rise to 0.50% until Q3-4 of 2015.

- US 2-yr: +10bps at 0.49%
- 10-yr: +4bps at 2.33%; 3-week high
- 30-yr: flat at 3.06%
- 2-10 spread: -6bps at 1.84%

Energy: WTI Dec crude oil $82.16; Crude is up for the 2nd straight day after two losing sessions, rising to near- $82.90 or a 1-week high. DOE crude inventory build number was less than anticipated, which sent prices to their highs, though subsequent USD rally after the Fed statement briefly crude back below $82.

- Spot Gold $1,209/oz; Gold is down over $15 amid a sharp bounce in the US dollar after a slightly less dovish than expected FOMC statement. A low of $1,208 in the first hour also marks a 3-week low.
- Spot Silver $17.07/oz; Silver tested 2-week lows around $17.03 in the aftermath of the FOMC, down over 25c since the release.
- Dec Copper $3.08/lb; Copper traded up to 1-month high above $3.11 but fell sharply along with the rest of the metals after FOMC-infused USD rally.

Key Earnings at the close:

01[12:19] {@Threei}  The FOMC decision drops later today, and there is little chance the committee will not end the QE bond buying program as expected. All eyes are on whether the "considerable time" language remains a part of the statement or gets removed. Whether it goes now or in December, Fed watchers expect it to be replaced by something similar in spirit but without any calendar-based overtones.

01[14:03] {@Threei}  it likely will be appropriate to maintain the 0 to 1/4 percent target range for the federal funds rate for a considerable time following the end of its asset purchase program this month, especially if projected inflation continues to run below the Committee's 2 percent longer-run goal, and provided that longer-term inflation expectations remain well anchored. However, if incoming information indicates faster progress toward the Committee's employment and inflation objectives than the Committee now expects, then increases in the target range for the federal funds rate are likely to occur sooner than currently anticipated. Conversely, if progress proves slower than expected, then increases in the target range are likely to occur later than currently anticipated.

Oct 28 2104

Not the easiest day as market rinsed a few entries in pre-Fed jitters. Still, winning ones outweighed stops, and concluding 1:3 on FB cemented the profits.
Close Market Snapshot US Indices:
Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:55 PM EST

- Dow Jones +1.0%
- S&P500 +1.1%
- Nasdaq +1.6%

US indices are headed for the 4th consecutive session of gains, as Vix dips back below 15 and Russell 2000 tops the 200-day MA. Industrials and Materials sectors are leading the charge, while defensive Utilities and Healthcare names lag with a more modest rally. CMI, WHR, and AN are the leaders in the S&P500, rising over 6% on strong earnings announcements. KSS, COH, and HOT are off by 5-6% after their Q3 results. GD, NOC, and CAT are also notable gainers in Industrials, up over 2.5%. MRK and LLY are down 1.5% and 2.4% in healthcare, while AMGN is up over 5.5%.

Fixed-Income: US treasuries are slightly lower, particularly on the longer end, going into tomorrow's pivotal FOMC decision, with increasing expectations of a slightly less dovish statement accompanying the final $15B taper announcement. Traders have also shrugged a disappointing durable goods release, with risk-on flows favoring stocks over fixed income.
- US 2-yr: +1bps at 0.39%
- 10-yr: +3bps at 2.29%
- 30-yr: +3bps at 3.06%
- 2-10 spread: +2bps at 1.90%

Energy: WTI Dec crude oil $81.38; Crude is up about $1, rising after two straight declining sessions. Traders bought the dip following overnight losses on reduced price forecast from Goldman Sachs and ample supply reports from the Middle East. API and DOE release their weekly inventories data Tues after close and on Wednesday with expectations pointing to another large build.

- Spot Gold $1,228/oz; Gold rose as high as $1,236 - the highest level since Oct 23rd - after disappointing US durables data briefly sent USD lower.
- Spot Silver $17.19/oz; Silver also spiked on the release of US durables, reaching a 1-week high of $17.40 before erasing all of those gains in afternoon trade.
- Dec Copper $3.09/lb; Copper up for the 4th day, testing 2-week highs around $3.10.

Key Earnings at the close:

Looking ahead to Asia session:
- Japan Industrial Production 19:50ET
- New Zealand ANZ Business Confidence 20:00ET

Session Time: Tue Oct 28 00:00:00 2014
