Markets Go Manic Thanks To Money-Printing, Moderna, & Merkel

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

"I mean, that really got out of hand fast…"

Futures show the mania started early (Powell), was extended before the open (Moderna's vaccine headlines), and extended around the EU close (Merkel & Macron)…Small Caps were the biggest gainers (futs were limit up just ahead of open) with Nasdaq the laggard on the day…a weak close was notable however…

But all major US indices (ex-Transports) are now green for May…

In fact, Powell's promise to do "whatever it takes" sparked the greatest opening buying pressure in history at today's open…(Who the hell was seriously surprised by anything Powell said?)

But the Moderna meltup really took it to '11':

  • *TRUMP SAYS TODAY WAS VERY BIG DAY THERAPEUTICALLY

  • *TRUMP SAYS TODAY WAS BIG DAY FOR CURES, VACCINES

  • *TRUMP SAYS THERAPEUTICS, CURES MORE IMPORTANT THAN VACCINES NOW

So, to clarify the day's early action – we soared on the back of Fed fears and promises to print more due to bad news and we soared on positive vaccine headlines which would end the bad news.

Macron and Merkel made some promises they can't keep alone (i.e. the Dutch among others have to agree to the joint debt malarkey) but that didn't matter today. The euro soared and peripheral debt yields crashed…

Crude oil exploded higher into tomorrow's June contract expiration, further reassuring stock market buyers that… well demand must be back, right? June WTI topped $33 intraday (the highs from before the crash) before fading into settlement…

Just feel sorry for all the muppetry who was buying USO and utterly failed to gain anything…

Gold and Silver were clubbed like baby seals on the Moderna vaccine news – after ramping higher after Powell's promise to do more money printing…

Gold was down on the day…

But silver held on to its gains… even with the clubbing

And, aside from a brief spike, the gold/silver ratio continued to slide…

And this made us wonder a little… after Dr.Scott Gottlieb came on CNBC and offered a sense of reality about just how modest this Moderna data is, the broad market didn't even blink…

Remember Remdesivir…
