The US Treasury will bomb the markets with $288 billion in new supply over the next 7 days.
This supply hits a market where structures are still collapsing and burning despite the Fed’s rescue programs. Those programs only exacerbate and prolong the causes of this disaster: Endless free credit, excessive leverage, complicated financial engineering, and infinite moral hazard.

The Fed has been sending up $110 billion a day or so in anti-aircraft fire, but so far, the bombs are inflicting more damage than the Fed is preventing. The S&P has lost 45 points since last Wednesday.
That’s not all. The 13 week bill rate rose 12 basis points today. Other bills were stable, but the increase in the rate on this bill is a warning sign that the market will not be able to digest this barrage of paper without more dislocation, even with the Fed buying all of it and then some.
11 years of free money and QE built too much leverage into the system. As the bubble expanded it became increasingly fragile and brittle. It is still in the process of disintegration and collapse.

The Fed injected around $600 billion into the markets and the banking system last week. That’s about $2,000 for every American, and it was just one weekly installment. All in the valley of Death rode the 600. We are the 600 and the Fed is leading us into the valley of Death.
Meanwhile banking indicators suggest that the sickness is getting worse, not better.
