The Stock Market Is Getting It Wrong

Regardless of a December interest rate hike, the Federal Reserve is soon going to be reversing course and cutting interest rates and doing another round of quantitative easing (QE). In fact, long term interest rates are already spiking up on the potential that Yellen might raise interest rates and that is going to be enough to really prick the bubble in the housing market.

So far the stock market is remaining oblivious to the spike in bond yields because I think they believe the stimulus that might result from the tax cuts and spending increases will be enough to offset the drag of higher interest rates and I think they are very mistaken. There is no way to counteract the damage to this bubble that will result from a spike in long term interest rates.
