Dan Norcini's commentary

There is no such thing as a jobless recovery, despite what the government spins. Either it's an economic recovery--or it's not.
Bonds are strangely higher today when one considers a yearly high in the S&P 500 and a general reflation trade. I have given up attempting to figure that market out as it is undoubtedly so heavily intervened in by the monetary authorities that the signals it gives off are dubious. One would think that with gold moving higher today and the Dollar lower that the last thing that would be moving higher is the bond market. After all, if the economy is so damned good that the equities can put in a yearly high leading one to believe the chatter that the Fed is moving towards draining excess liquidity because things are so peachy-keen, then why would money be flowing INTO and not OUT OF bonds.

In the meantime, don’t worry about a single thing – bankrupted states, financially impoverished towns, townships, counties and cities, falling tax revenues, chronically high underemployment rates and federal government spending that can only be described as a treacherous betrayal of the next generation of citizens – none of this is important – the only thing that matter is that the stock market is higher so all is well. Let the good times roll baby!
