IS THE FED PREPARING FOR QE4

... OR EVEN WORSE - "HELICOPTER MONEY"?

09-30-15

(See our Macro Analytics Video Explaining Helicopter Money)

IS "HELICOPTER MONEY" COMING?

Since the start of June, global equity markets have lost over $13 trillion. This might be thought of as lost "collateral" for the mountains of pyramided global debt. This is frightening the Central Bankers!

(The last time global market dropped this much - Bernanke unleashed QE2)

As Zero Hedge spells out:

"world market capitalization has fallen back below $60 trillion for the first time since February 2014 as it appears the world's central planners' "print-or-die" policy to create wealth (and in some magical thinking - economic growth) has failed - and failed dramatically".

Despite a steady diet of global rate cuts and balance sheet expansion around the world, the last 4 months have seen an 18% collapse - the largest since Lehman.

THE FED HAS BEEN BACKED INTO THE CORNER OF ONCE AGAIN INCREASING ITS BALANCE SHEET

HISTORICAL BEHAVIOR SUGGESTS THIS SHOULD SOON TO BE EXPECTED

WHAT ARE THE CENTRAL BANKERS' OPTIONS?

Of course you never know for sure, but the general thinking is there are three likely central bank initiatives in our future. They may be rolled out or unleashed in a coordinated fashion to stem a potential economic crisis.

 

IT WIIL ONLY TAKE THE PERCEPTION OF A CRISIS TO UNLEASH A TORRENT LARGER THAN WE CAN CURRENTLY IMAGINE!

Let me be perfectly clear, non of this will work in the longer term! But when you are trying to keep your job, the longer term is the least of your concerns.

IT WILL LIKELY RESULT IN AN 9 MONTH RALLY AND MARGINALLY NEW HIGHS (OUR PREDICTED"M" TOP)

GOLDMAN SUPPORTS OUR 'M" TOP - WITH BOGUS NUMBERS

POTENTIAL FED TRIGGER LEVELS

So how long will the Fed wait before acting? What might the FEd's trigger points be?

A- BULL MARKET TREND CHANNEL SUPPORT

CHANNEL SUPPORT = 1860

B- TRADITIONAL FIBONACCI SUPPORT LEVELS

FIBONACCI 38.2% = 1837

FIBONACCI 50.0% = 1743

C- REGRESSIONS & TRADE WEIGHTED DOLLARS

Our longer term analysis on both the basis of linear regression and trade weighted dollars for the S&P 500 suggest ~1800needs to be held or matters could get quickly out of control for central bank policy initiatives.

D- SOME SEE THE FED "PUT" TO BE MUCH LOWER

I find the views of Nomura's Bob Janjuah to very insightful and predictive. He sees the Fed "PUT" to be much lower than we do.

He writes:

"Where is the Fed “put”, and what would such a “put” look like? It is very early in the process and lots will depend on global policy responses and data outcomes, but I am happy to declare my view: the next Fed “put” is not likely until the S&P 500 is trading in the 1500s at least (so more likely to be a Q1 2016 item rather than Q4 2015); and in terms of what the Fed could do, clearly QE4 has to be in the Fed’s toolkit. However, considering the failure of global QE to generate sustainable global growth and inflation, and considering the Fed’s starting point, 2016 could be the year when we see negative Fed Funds as a way of getting money velocity moving up rather than down.

... while I think a US recession is merely possible rather than probable, the evidence is growing in my view that a global recession is more probable than possible. Certainly the global trade data are pointing to meaningful global growth weakness, backed by weak data from EM and large parts of DM too. And a quick look at credit markets, in particular the HY markets in the US and Europe as well as the EM credit space support my view of a global growth recession being probable and not just possible. So if a global growth recession is more probable than possible, then it seems clear to me that neither risk assets nor core rates markets are accurately reflecting this at this time – instead, they reflect the “more possible” scenario rather than “more probable”. In other words, financial markets are NOT yet pricing for a recession, rather they are merely flirting with the idea. I suspect this largely reflects faith/hope in policymakers within market participants. The events of the past few weeks, both going into and after the most recent BOJ and FOMC meetings, should give those heavily invested in policymaker faith/hope a lot of food for thought."

THE REVENUE RECESSION IS MOVING TOWARDS A ECONOMIC RECESSION SCARE

The Fed catalyst may not be a market level but rather the potential worry of an Economic Recession. A scare that may galvinize the Fed into action?

My research shows for the first time since 2009, all six major Fed regional activity surveys are in contraction territory.

WHAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT SHOWING - But the fed is acutely aware of!

EXPECT THE FED TO HIDE BEHIND THE COMING MARKET REALIZATION SCARE!

QE4, Helicopter Money (OMF), NIRP and Collateral Guarantees are coming soon!
