‘The too-big-to-fail banks are all a lot bigger now than they were in 2008, and none of them are any more stable or less prone’
If you think yesterday’s market action was something to worry about, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
President Barack Obama getting re-elected sets the stage for another credit crisis.
When the president came into office in 2008 he had a mandate to fix the banking system, which consisted of too-big-to-fail banks holding America and its economy hostage to their greedy schemes.
He swept that mandate under the door of Congress and the Federal Reserve.
The president has no position on the big banks, and it seems he likes it that way.
No matter how much money the Federal Reserve feeds banks via QE4-ever, enough so they could pay off their bailout loans, pay themselves big bonuses again, pay trumped-up dividends to entice equity investors, and continue buying Treasuries with no-interest financing, their balance sheets are still laden with derivatives, stale mortgages and sickeningly more government debt that’s about to get downgraded.
This president blew his first mandate and the result is that it’s like déjà vu all over again.
The too-big-to-fail banks are all a lot bigger now than they were in 2008, and none of them are any more stable or less prone to the massive correlation of similar asset mixes and counterparty exposure (namely themselves) that if pierced will trigger another crisis.
Jim Chanos, who oversees $6 billion as the founder & president at Kynikos Ltd., talks about China’s monetary policy & financial markets.
Thorsten Polleit, chief economist at Degussa Goldhandel GmbH, tells CNBC that credit supply to the private sector is contracting at a rate unseen since the early 1980s, the severest decline in decades.
8 reasons the selloff could get much worse
Moving averages offer average closing prices for a stock or index over a defined period of days, helping traders identify trends.
Among the 200-day moving averages to watch:
- 12,991 for the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.44% , which was broken Wednesday.
- 1,380 for the S&P 500 SPX -0.71% , which is still holding.
- 2,982 for the Nasdaq Composite NDAQ +0.04% , also broken Wednesday.
Sarhan said a key question for now is whether the current pullback — so far a relatively mild one — gets worse and enters correction territory, typically defined by a decline of more than 10% from a recent high.
He identifies dangers for the market that could trigger more selling:
- Continuing technical deterioration for heavy-hitting stocks like Apple Inc. AAPL -3.05% , which he said broke its 200-DMA last week ;
- A European debt-crisis flare up;
- Signs of U.S. economy or global economic slowdown;
- A new Chinese government that isn’t so friendly to the U.S. (Read: China’s leadership transition raises questions);
- And last but not least, the U.S. going over the fiscal cliff.
“Bottom line: Investors want to know what catalyst (s) will help the market rally from here,” Sarhan said.
