Treasury and Fed Inundating Markets With Cash This Week

The Fed and Treasury are injecting $115 billion in cash into the markets over this 10 day period with a combination of Fed MBS purchase settlements, and Treasury debt paydowns. That will make it tough for stock and bond bears to see their expectations met in the short run.

Over the intermediate term Treasury supply looks as though it will be unusually light in the third quarter as well, with huge paydowns of T-bills in the forecast. This report looks at the implications of that, including why it will make the Fed’s threat to raise interest rates all but impossible.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also provide analysis and charts for David Stockman's Contra Corner which I developed for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs in the past 44 years, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
