Fed Minutes Released: "Some FOMC Members Think QE3 Would Be Appropriate"

Tyler Durden's picture


The only section that matters: "Some participants noted that if economic growth remained too slow to make satisfactory progress toward reducing the unemployment rate and if inflation returned to relatively low levels after the effects of recent transitory shocks dissipated, it would be appropriate to provide additional monetary policy accommodation....A few members noted that, depending on how economic conditions evolve, the Committee might have to consider providing additional monetary policy stimulus, especially if economic growth remained too slow to meaningfully reduce the unemployment rate in the medium run." Translation: QE3?

Should I trade my gold for silver today?  It is sitting at 42 to 1, my post from april is nagging in my ear 

Here is my previous post

by Zedge Hero
on Fri, 04/29/2011 - 15:59


  I traded some silver for gold yesterday at 33.5 to 1 at the local shop because lets face they are both great but silver is on a drunken sailor tear here and is due a little break. Either way the dollar is weak, but I do plan on trading my gold for silver if it goes back to 35-30 enviroment.

END POST-  gold was 1570 that day high and silver at 48. today as you know 1570 and 36.50

I could gain 50 ounces of silver if I get 42 to 1  for that same gold today. I think silver could go back up to 50 easily. Tell me what you think Zero Hedgers? Silver or Gold? Is there another silver train coming in or what?

balance.. have some of everything..


if you can gain ground in silver.. thru gold.. gain ground.. if you can gain ground in gold thru silver.. gain ground.. as long as you are trading metal for metal that you physically have in your possession.. you are going to be fine.


There is not as much silver sitting as there is gold sitting and silver can purify water.. I could go on and on about silver but I wont.. suffice to say you are a winner either way! beat the system! for all the free metal you can gain from it!

And BTW what I always said was QE3 wont be what you expect! Certainly wont be QE1 when everyone was giddy with 'Hope and Change' and 'Yes We Can!' and all that garbage, we're at the endgame some can see it and some cant.

At this point, the belief system for the person prevails, and you're either in one camp of beliefs or the other. If one does not come up with a similar conclusion from the same material, the person is unlikely to ever (until the event happens).

I'd hedge my bets accordingly. Belief that the system is going to right itself, and eventually we'll unteeter ourselves (and everyone else in the world) back off of the brink? What the would necessarily do that? I'd say you'd need an event that is going to shake absolutely everything up, and people will have to start over. The game is up clearly.

QE3 will collapse the market SheepDog so dont worry about the same old QE pump helping markets.

If i recall , lowering rates in 07 thru 08 didnt do alot of good. Well , QE isnt a panacea for nominal gains either. Thats the dynamic that will catch people out. One QE too many and too soon and the faith in the system collapses.

As seen in that one guest post the other day. I'm not so convinced that will be the end. The assumption that "well now they'll clearly see the logic if they say QE doesn't work, so more QE" is just not founded. They'll continue to take money away and devalue everybody's currency and they'll just blame the corporations and everyone else around.

There is no question in my mind, when the system collapses its not like everybody is going to wake up the next day and everybody will have the right people in mind to blame. They'll just blame who they have always thought were the culprits. ITS BECAUSE THE RICH DIDN"T PAY TAXESSSS RAR RAR RARRRR.

We are reaching an end game where they need various mutually exclusive events to be happening at the same time (low bond yields, high risk assets, low oil prices, low inflation, etc etc) that can only be achieved through constant manipulation of the markets and we are way beyond the limits of conventional monetary policy.

We've seen some seriously stupid market action in the last couple years...but tell it not the case that today's price action is literally the dumbest you've ever seen?

Oh, and to all mentally retarded people, I do extend sincere apologies for comparing you to bankers.  Of course, people with mental retardation are born to their compared to bankers who make up steaming piles of nonsense day by freakin' day.

True, its not very nice comparing mentally retarded people to these jackal parasites....Hedgeless Horseman just advised me I still have time to find religion and go long equities, I think I'll kindly decline, and just pick up some more ammo.

My apology is sincere.

Look...gasoline futures about to go parabolic.  Great!  I'm sure this will help the consumer discretionary group...which criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers are desperate to unload here at the top.  

Better to set up a giant gas tank and buy wholesale, dog.

I'm done trying to figure out the logic behind this shit.  I've heard of people talking out of both sides of their mouth, but to watch the markets do it is fucking boggling.  The dow goes even more batshit during a day that already looks like a sine wave drawn by Michael J Fox freehand and oil rockets up by +2.00$

Fucking rabbit hole gets stranger by the day.

Quantitative Easing Forever

With rates about to rise, due to the fact that demand is lackluster for Treasurie bonds, the Fed and its genius leader Ben Bernanke will have to continue along the road of quantitative easing.  The Fed, which was forced into a corner long ago by a failed economic, monetary, and fiscal policy, is the lender, and buyer, of last resort.  The world over has stated they are not comfortable propping up the US regime, and so the Fed will be forced to continue to do so....

Quantitative Easing Forever:

Even if so, nothing says equities or bonds will go UP much from here, I'd say the FED has a Herculean task just creating any kind of stability from here on. If they keep the QE debaucle going, theres NOTHING they can do about oil, food, PM's shooting up, and thats all there is to it.

Real gains in equities will be minimal- good luck guessing the NFLXs and LULUs, and gains will be nominal with an inverse relationship 1:1 to the dollar.  US equities will not beat out precious metals and oil.  But as the dollar loses value, it takes more dollars to invest in equities.

As for bonds, the US Treasurie is broke and their bonds are worthless.  So what type of bonds will be sought?  Corporate bonds.  As rates go up on Treasuries, corporate rates will go down, and corporate bonds will sell at premium.

What they don't tell you is that a QE3 will not work and as soon as that one ends then they will need another and another until the Federal Debt is $20 trillion plus or interest rates are zero across the curve which means nothing has any value including stocks......This is all bogus as it won't increase real wages and incomes on a permanent basis and therefore is just more of the Ponzi....even this announcement within the minutes is geard to fake you out and steal your savings.

We're facing near a $2T this year and most certainly that next year and they can't even get an agreement to cut $4T over 10 years..... over 10 years.   So why exactly are people shocked when they consider more printing???   If they can't even cut that pittance, there's no alternative but to print.   It's astounding so many can't see this as the only option left.  Everyone acknowledges they lack the political balls to cut what's needed, raise taxes, or both....yet refuse then to acknowledge that the only option left is to print.   Gold is going much, much higher before this is over.  Bank on it.
