Remember the algo-ignited, six sigma anomaly that sent 10-year yields down 30 bps in seemingly no time flat on the morning of October 15? Well despite the CFTC’s contention that it was “just a high volume day” without “any break in liquidity,” the Center for Financial […]

Arthur Cutten from Jesse’s Cafe Americain blog alerted me to this Bloomberg story: “The Treasury Market’s Legendary Liquidity Has Been Drying Up.”
For decades, the $12.5 trillion market for U.S. government debt was renowned for its “depth,” Wall Street’s way of talking […]

Investors who plowed into Greek assets ahead of Mario Draghi’s QE €60 billion a month bond-buying spree figuring the ECB could paper over this mess have been pounded almost nonstop recently.

One way or another this is going to get wild… As Nanex exposes, liquidity in the S&P 500 e-mini futures contract (the most liquid equity trading vehicle) is the lowest it has ever been on an FOMC Day…

I have written before, in the context of QE announcement by the ECB last week (see here:http://trueeconomics.blogspot.ie/2015/01/2312015-liquidity-fix-for-euro-what-for.html) that the real problem with the euro area monetary and economic aggregates has nothing to do with liquidity supply (the favourite excuse for doing all sorts of things that […]

On January 9, 2015 I posted Another Run on Greek Banks Begins; Get Out While You Still Can; Buy Gold.
On the same day, Greek finance minister Gikas Hardouvelis said “Probability of a Bank Run is Small and Deposits are Safe“.

Before we first exposed proof of the conspiracy fact that global Central Banks are indeed trading US equity futures, it was dismissed as tin-foil-hat-wearing, pajama-wearing, basement-living conspiracy theory. So it is, perhaps, quite notable that Congress itself has now admitted that Central Banks are trading futures and […]

As yields across the Treasury complex continue to rise this week – amid desks complaining of no liquidity at all (and following yesterday’s weak auction) – the yield curve (5s30s) has collapsed to 108bps, its flattest since June 2008. 2s30s continues to slide also (at 212bps) […]

A central tenet of my view of the markets is that there’s just one worldwide pool of liquidity, and it is ruled by the same Killer Whales operating out of a few world financial capitals. We call those whales (or sharks if you prefer) Primary […]

Golf-clap, Janet… you really screwed this one up…
With RBS exiting the “dead” Japanese bond market, is the US Treasury market next for the death of liquidity?

Curious how over the past 6 years we got to a point where the market is now so irreparably broken, even the BIS couldn’t take it anymore and threw up all over the the world’s central bankers? Then look no further than the following chart summarizing 6 […]

Something appears to be happening to gold. That something is either China finally revealing its true gold inventory, which is unlikely, or, more likely, the biggest fat finger in the history of gold, as a liquidity testing algo goes absolutely insane in the pre-open period (and loses […]

It has always fascinated me to hear the mainstream’s interpretation of the gold standard. The great majority – including many who are part and parcel to the financial elite – elicit a knee-jerk response to its mere utterance.
Many see the return to the most […]
