   Well now we can all stop wondering. Wonder if it will be sell the news now that we have clarity. Looks to me like Bears have been on the sidelines simply waiting for a decision.

As I said in the other thread:

 

The 2/10 yield curve would flatten.

 

Da bitch has flattened like Senator Robert Byrd's EKG.

 

Now we're going to see compression in the markets where the 2 sticks around 0.50% and the 10 dives down to test 2.25-2.5% yield levels.

Fed just jumped the shark. All credibility gone. Gold blue sky this month. >1500 by year end. And im not even a gold bug , im just stating how this is going to go down. JPM are going to have to short the output of South Africa and China combined to keep a lid on this.

It's too late to become flexible.

Question is, can one remain flexible?

Any news that borrowing costs (bonds) are going to remain low is beneficial to the S&P companies who are waist-deep (and soon to be neck-deep) in debt.

I think the quote you are looking for is "4 out of 5 dentists surveyed recommended sugarless gum for their patients who chew gum".  I think that would make Hoenig (in your analogy) dentist #5 (who apparently recommended taffy).  I don't think the analogy holds.  It's Bernanke giving out the candy.  Consequences be damned

I mean, let's really think about this:

1) Government is financed via a "bank" that prints it little pieces of paper (or digits) that it can use to "pay" for its shit. Government issues IOU's to said "bank"

2) Millions all over the world get their asses out of bed every day to slave for said paper/digits. In this case, the slaves trade labor for said "paper" that said "bank" prints and gives to said Government

3) What happens when said slaves become aware of said scam?

4)  Guillotines appear.  Federal Reserve employees surreptitiously burn their IDs in fireplace and bury the ashes.  Tell neighbors they worked for Federal Employee Credit Union.

) Chinese General Says U.S. Provocation Risks Economic Response

"Aug. 10 (Bloomberg) -- A Chinese general said U.S. plans to send a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to the Yellow Sea may lead to retaliation from China, the biggest foreign holder of Treasuries.

"Imagine what the consequence will be if China’s biggest debtor nation challenges its creditor nation," Major General Luo Yuan, deputy secretary general of the People’s Liberation Army Academy of Military Sciences, wrote in an editorial today in the state-controlled English-language Global Times

The Federal Reserve is like a numbing agent, so that when you burn you hand you don't feel the pain -- until it's too late.

The war won't be middle class against ruling class/Federal Reserve employees.  That'll come after.

I'm guessing, when Obama has to pick an enemy to distract Americans from their emptied out 401-Ks, Venezuela will get the nod.  They have oil, after all.

Someone once said: " The Fed will NOT monetize the federal debt". Who was that guy that said it?

Tue, 08/10/2010 - 14:36 | 513114 NotApplicable

Maybe he meant he won't monetize it with real money, because they are instead using that extra $1.5T in proceeds from earlier auctions to fund the current "demand?"

I might just hit my home refi target rate sooner than expected.

You know, if one pays heed to the advice produced by ZH, one will lose out on many, many opportunities to make money in the market.

Why do you guys so fight the fed.  It seems everyone here knows the fed is going to inflate asset prices; why doesn't this site play up the earnings potential afforded by this reality?
