’Twas The Night Before The Fed Meeting


Since we now live in an entirely different world in which stock prices are manipulated every minute of every day by central bankers, we should put our efforts into updating our literature to reflect the new ‘nanny-state’ of our existence. I have begun updating nursery rhymes. In keeping with Christmas spirit, I have now updated the poem commonly known as ‘The Night Before Christmas’ to more accurately reflect the true Santa Claus - the Federal Reserve Bank. 

’Twas the hours before the Fed announcement
and throughout the NYSE
Not a trader was trading
Not even the propagandist, shill, cheerleaders on CNBC

With hope in our hearts 
And ‘buy’ orders in hand
Investors waited anxiously
For Janet to announce that the bubble would indeed expand!

With me and my data
So different from government lies
I knew stocks should fall
But I knew Janet felt otherwise

Our hearts beat faster
As the two o’clock hour neared
What would Janet say?
Would there be anything to fear?

And suddenly there she was
Lift off was here
Higher rates were coming
Wall Street let out a cheer!

They knew as I did
Janet would not fail
She has a printing press
And no reluctance to tell a tall tale

At first the Dow staggered
Realizing the end could be near
The bull market rally
Zoomed higher as a wall of money suddenly appeared

Up Amazon, up Google
Up banking, utilities, nothing could fall
Every sector was in the green
The PPT bought it all

With price fixing in
the bubble could grow and grow
The Fed won’t let us down
All stocks are green no matter what we sow

So twenty trillion is debt 
is nothing to fret
Neither is a bubble in stocks
Against the fed we don’t want to bet.

Enjoy the Fed’s bubble and Merry Christmas to all!
