Crypto & Small Caps Surge, Dollar Shrugs Ahead Of Biden’s Budget Bonanza

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

When the headline hit last night – from a Biden aide – that Biden’s stimulus spendfest was $2 trillion (or some suggested $3 trillion), markets lurched – bond yields spiked, small caps surged, tech tumbled, the dollar rallied, gold dumped, and crypto rebounded further.

By the end of the day session, gold and the dollar had retraced their moves while stocks, bonds, and crypto extended their trend.

Then late on stocks took a brief dive after NYTimes dropped a headline outlining Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan…

One thing that markets may not like is that contrary to previous expectations that the “stimmy” check will be $2,000, Biden will instead propose additional $1,400 stimulus checks, “topping up the $600 checks that Congress approved in December.”

Which apparently disappointed stocks… Still, the US equity markets massively diverged with Small Caps exploding higher as Big-Tech and the Dow and S&P drifted down, accelerating late on…

Today was the biggest short-squeeze since April 2020!! … note that the most-shorted stocks have risen for 9 of the last 10 days.

Bitcoin pushed back up above $40,000 as perhaps the cleanest signal left of the inflationary impulse…

The dollar reversed hard and ended down…

And while gold ended lower it bounced hard off the spike lows overnight…

As, we suspect the world is coming to recognize that the Treasury/Fed axis is “meddling with the primary force of nature… money!!”

The Russell 2000 / Nasdaq 100 ratio soared to their highest since early March…

Small Caps are now up almost 10% YTD with Nasdaq barely above unch…

Energy stocks exploded higher once again today as Tech and Staples lagged…

Value was well bid as growth stocks were dumped…

VIX remains awkwardly high relative to stocks…

But with demand for calls so high (at 21 year highs relative to puts), this measure of ‘fear’ could have switched to a measure of ‘greed’ once again…

As we are seeing insane levels of call-buying in XLE and more idioyncratically XOM…

But vol of vol (VVIX) is notably decoupling…

Treasury yields also extended their overnight spike on the reflation theme after Jay Powell failed to calm the taper rhetoric…pushing 30Y back to unch on the week…

10Y yields pushed back above 1.10%…

USTs are at their highest to Bunds in over 10 months and at a critical technical level…

Oil surged back above $53…

Grains continue to soar…

Today’s rebound in Bitcoin combined with gold’s recent relative weakness has sent the cryptocurrency to a record 21.5x the price of the precious metal…

And finally as US economic data continues to serially disappoint…

It has never been more expensive for the ‘average joe’ to buy stocks…

And the last time the put-call ratio collapsed to these levels of complacency… it did not end well…
