What I know if that everyone is buying bonds and no one (to exaggerate a little) is buying stocks.It's the bigger fool theory at work. The bigger fool is the Fed - and the Fed can afford to be the bigger fool because they're able to create money from thin air (unlike everyone else) - and the Fed has promised to keep buying bonds and driving up the price with their conjured money.Why should people take a chance on stocks, hoping a bigger fool will drive up the value of their stocks using earned money - when the Fed has already promised to keep being the bigger fool in the bond market using conjured money.Contrarian investing only really works when the other participants in a market are using earned money. Once a participant with unlimited conjured money enters a market, it is no longer a market.
