Treasury Turmoil Returns As Fed-Flip-Flop Sends Stocks To Record Highs, VIX Below 10

Yellen's speaking again, give it all you've got!!


Stocks stalled early on (around 1010ET) thanks to inflation comments from Yellen, but that dip was bid back to the highs, then they took a little spill when Fed's Brainard admitted "asset valuations do look a bit stretched" around 1400ET. Once again the rally-monkeys came out, even as it became clear that GOP will not have the votes for the revised healthcare bill.
