What you said in chart form – Fed's balance sheet vs Nasdaq. The only time the Fed attempted to return its balance sheet to pre-2008 levels led to the huge DEC 2018 sell-off. Even before Corona, it was clear; the Fed can't reduce the size of its balance sheet. pic.twitter.com/g5vTozEgnZ

During recessions, the stock market capitalization has generally fallen down to the level of the broad money supply. 2003 was an exception; didn't get that far down.
This time it looks like the broad money supply is catching up as much as the market is falling. pic.twitter.com/8yGS95GGsJ
