The Fed and Treasury are in a box. The too long and low interest rate policies of Greenspan created the housing bubble and Wall Street [new product engineers, credit rating agencies and bond insurers] accommodated it with creative products no one understood or analyzed with any diligence. It’s all blown up in their faces. Letting Bear Stearns fail was an option but sometimes ego gets in the way of a painful and embarrassing event.

The previous stock rally now failing was suspect with hindsight due to the slack volume upon which it was built. We’re seeing Mr. Market take it apart.

Housekeeping notes: It appears my mailbox is full again and could be the result of a doubling of my inbox due to moving mail from my PC to laptop in advance of another trip. By the way, did I mention another trip? We’re heading from here to SF for an ETF conference and then LA for another. Should be fun and tiring but I’ll find some time to post.

Have a great day.
