It took the world a few months to totally buy into the fact that all that matters is the flow from the Fed’s POMO but, as the chart below so humbly suggests, with a 0.95 correlation (if its not causation, we’re at least on the right path) in proclaiming that for every $3.25 billion printed by the Fed the S&P 500 index will rise by 1 point.
