The whole purpose of all the printing and bailouts was to prevent a "great recession" or depression or whatever. If the Fed and Treasury stop now, allow the dolllar to shoot to the moon and interest rates rise like an elevator in the Burj Kalifa, then stocks will drop and the economy will tank and a lot of people will be pissed that the "bailouts" didn't work. Politicians will come under fire. I don't think this kind-of trend could continue without pressure to resume printing and piling up debt. I think .gov, treasury, and the FED would rather keep printing to give them more time. I am in the camp of "once the printing press starts, it cannot stop". Even though a collapse is still fairly certain, the charade can go on longer than if QE and all other unicorn economic stimulus stops in June.

Yes, the choice facing the Bernanke is "die today or die tomorrow," aka "death or death by Bongo."

When it all goes bust and the floor finally caves in, would you be able to take you pysical dollar bills and just burn them?

It seems easy enough to say "yes", but I was thinking that the psychological connection that we seem to have to the dollar would make it difficult, even when we know that it holds no worth.

When that time comes, see just how easy it would really be; it might surprise you.

I love denial. Damn you Tyler!

I don't think you guys get it. We must put more $$$'s into the system so that people can begin to appreciate them. Think of the euphoria as the bills drop from the sky.

Everybody wants some cause they are free!

That's my take on the bounce. Seems like obvious as fuck that daytraders like me are being mocked and fucked with. That's fine. Once I've covered my margin to the point that I just can't anymore?

I might suppose a bit of subversion would be in order.

That`s the equivalent of a pile of $1.00 bills 12.8 miles high.

There will be no hyperinflation of USD. Perhaps inflation 5-10%, but not hyper. Because USD itself is a commodity. And coming recession will take care of most prices except oil.

Oil prices 2011-2012 were charted in this Feb 6th graph. We are headed for another temporary relative minimum in the end of April, Brent around 105-110 USD.


After that, in July-September, its time for Sarah Palin to launch her bid officially.

The $1000 bill could be Bernanke, but the supreme homage should be to the man who started the end of civilization as we know it,  the $10,000 bill should have the likeness of:


Mayer Rothschild.

I suspect all of the interest only home loans going bad, and the mega banks not being able to foreclose probably has something to do with it.

Either way, the worst news is no news at all.  Whatever is going on, it would seem it is serious enough that they dont want to talk about it.  

If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would say that the FED/banks are trying to hold out and use the debt ceiling debate as an excuse for their "problems"... There is a 0% chance of getting any bank bailout this time, however...

As we have highlighted on many occasions, the surge in the AMB is primarily due to the SFP unwind. Every apples to apples comparison needs to eliminate $195 billion from this surge as it was artificially low to begin with.

$500 Billion a month by June 2011.  $1 Trillion a month by Jan 1, 2012.  $1 Quadrillion a month by April 1, 2012.  Infinity per month by Christmas 2012.  Clock me.  I bet you a cup of coffee I'm right - payable on Jan 1, 2013.

Why would they need to bail themselves out? They own the money, we just have it on loan. It would be nothing for them to simply pull the plug and end the charade.

Could it have something to do with a possible stealth bailout of the TBTF banking system? With precious metals on a tear recently, I'm sure that the 'highly capitalized' banks are encountering a renewed stress on their reserves as their depositors cash out from their fiat accounts and move into tangible assets.

But the dollar is still over 75... after 2 rounds of QE and we're 2 months away from june.

QE has clearly failed. I would suggest one should get HEDGED into cash, because after all these bailouts and stimulus efforts the dollar is too resilient.

Rates will only go up.

Some could argue this is the perfect storm of a huge dollar RALLY.
