For months, The Fed and the market have been demanding, anticipating, and pressuring Congress for moar… moar loans, moar handouts, moar bailouts, and moar promises of moar.

The outcome of the election, most specifically Democrats’ greatly disappointing results in the Senate and the House have crushed the hopes of a ‘blue wave’ and with it, trillions in free money.

Which leaves just one last hero, once again, to save the world…

And that is where we are – the market has flipped to anticipating more QE, as it is now the only stimulus option likely in the short- or even medium-term.

That anticipation has sparked a buying-panic in everything.
