Yellen Nomination Rally Half-Life 90 Minutes

When Larry Summers stepped away from the nomination for Fed Chair, S&P 500 futures ramped vertically by over 20 points. The reaction to the nomination of Janet Yellen managed a limp 6 point surge in S&P futures. Worse still, it took 24 hours for the Summers-Out ramp to be cut in half... Yellen's 'ramp' has already given back half of her gains in 90 minutes. It seems The White House needs change of narrative - or just another bargaining chip to piss the Republicans off - and judging by the "sudden" rip higher in AUDJPY, 'someone' is trying desperately to spark some momentum ignition... but for now - it's not working. Timing is everything we guess.


Well that's not very impressive is it?


Especially when compared to Summers-Out news...

It seems the market priced in the Queen of Doves in the run-up to the un-Taper.


But that's not stopping the machines from trying their best to spark a rally...


Someone wants this Yellen nomination to be a big deal - they just chose a bad time to do it...
