Macro comment:

While the market consensus is now 90% certain there will be tapering in September, the gap between reality and consensus is the biggest ever. Yesterday saw dominant names like Cisco and Wal-Mart downgrade their forward looking numbers, Philly Fed tanked - AND - Obama handling of the economy in polls also COLLAPSED:

Point?

There will more QE not less- the pundit analyse market via linear relationship ignoring taders/people are cyclical in their approach to life - hence - with lag this is low in unemployment, high in rates, and there is probably - despite this morning and yday negative markets - another high in S&P ahead by end of Q3 (1770/1800). Clearly the negative crowd will point to VIX increase in vol - but being a simple man I will remain constructive (Bought @ 1662/64) yday untill 100 SMA is broken (1623/20 on a two day close.

Steen, you are a rational man and you always make good sense. But, I don't believe either the markets or the policy-makers are rational. It seems to me that everything is building on air, and that anything could happen at any moment. David
