Here Comes QE3: Hoenig Says "More Quantitatve Easing May Be Discussed"

Tyler Durden's picture

We thought Jon Hilsenrath would break the news of QE3. To our shock, it comes from the only sensible man at the Fed, Kansas Fed's Tom Hoenig. Per Reuters: "The Federal Reserve could
debate extending its bond-buying program beyond June if U.S.
economic data prove weaker than policymakers expect
, Kansas
City Fed President Thomas Hoenig said. Another round of bond buying "may get discussed" if the
numbers look "disappointing," Hoenig told Market News
International in an interview published on Tuesday." May we suggest in that case that Joe LaVorgna stop blaming every herpes outbreak in the US on snow and instead indicate that shit is once again hitting the fan. Obviously, this is merely a scheme to keep the market well bid no matter how violent the revolutionary images on TV, brought upon precisely by this genocidal policy. Even more obviously, it means that oil is going to $200 on short notice.

Time to buy stocks. Again, I'm proven right.

I've claimed numerous times that Bernanke will print forever and never raise rates. His strategy is working, and we're already witnessing a fantastic economic recovery.

Heh - if by "working" you mean "bankrupting billions of people so that a bunch of banksters can get their bonus" then yeah, it's working like a charm.

Screw it.

Whether you like it or not, we'll see DOW 14,000 before August. Prepare your Kleenex.

But Jane King told us this morning we're in a strong recovery. Hmmm....


Trust your eyes, not your ears.

If the economy is on "fire" why would the fed continue QE? What are they looking at?


whatz that smell's picture

sanity is dead. praise be the hoenig. may he ease for ever.

If the economy is on fire, why has the FED surpassed China in US Treasury holdings?

@William the bastard - If you or anyone with three particles of grey matter in their Sculls can explain that to me, I will walk Naked as a new born baby down Wall street and suck on the first appendage that presents itself.

Its like excepting that you have a fire and yelling for more Fuel. WTF is going on. It is destructive, insane and feels like the World has gone to Hell in a hand basket.

F the fascist overlords. I'll buy hard assets instead of stocks.

docj's picture

You're assuming, of course, that I care if the DOW goes to 48,000 or 48.

Hamy, At this point, I dont think anyone is going to short stocks. If they do, Vaseline would be a better tool.

Sure, we´ll also see $200 oil before August. I mean, do you understand the difference between real and nominal rise? Just askin ....

Nominal Wanger.  I like it. 

Can I use that as my next ID?

tickhound's picture

Wanger - "proven right again" LMAO! QE infinty has been "called" by just about everyone here... and it will go until they get the desired effect. And that effect isn't artificial / nominal "recoveries" you blind apologist for corruption and manipulation... the desired effect will be destabilization and the resulting controls. Two words - Ray Charles

Can someone explain to me how people are still falling for this?

Yeah, like I've never said that before...

Great, what does DOW 14,000 taste like? How many can it feed?

Buy all the paper you want.  In the end it's only utility will be to wipe your arse.

Hamy, we all realize pumping the markets makes stocks go higher.  What you don't seem to realize is there will be a nasty downside to this BS the Bernank is pulling.  And you'll need more than kleenex when that downside is realized.

Caviar Emptor's picture

Errr excuse me, 16,000. Has to reach and top the 2007 high or else risk looking like a double top (like during 2008, remember?). Unless we get a convincing breakout through the old high there will still be technical reasons for people to stay on the sidelines, in addition to those who don't trust 200% rallies on bad fundamentals.

gorillaonyourback's picture

we will see if inflation really takes root and unemployment rises(in real calcs not bls).  lets see if hamys trickle down economics works( i hope for the me and my fellow americans)  but my mind tells me it will trickle to higher commodity prices and as in my business increase in the cost of goods and the only way to compete is to lower my labor rate.  my mind is usually right and my hopes have a bad track record

unwashedmass's picture


we are so fucked. so where are we all going to gather to depose Bernanke? In front of the Fed? If I could afford the gas, I'd be there with my tent.

No doubt it is the same nominal dollar in your pocket, but the melt-up of the market is not the actual purpose of QE-nth.  TD has pointed out accurately numerous times that the real purpose is to provide a secondary market for otherwise unmarketable govt. debt, meaning the U.S. Treasury cannot issue debt to a real market at interest rates it can afford unless the shell game continues through POMO buys.  The U.S. cannot afford to look as if can't sell its debt when it needs $2 trillion in loans a year; thus, enter the Dragon, the Fed, to make it look as if there is an organic market for American debt, when the Fed is simply hallucinating a large fraction of the "money" finding its way into the Treasury auctions.  This fraction will continue to increase as long as interest rates are held low. When and if they're allowed to move up, the U.S. govt is bust. But the Dow is a nice palliative while we wait for this inevitable process to take place. Take it to the hoop, Hamish.

Rasna's picture

His strategy is working, and we're already witnessing a fantastic economic recovery.

This is an idiotic statement. To wit:

The conditions that caused the 2008 melt down have not been addressed.

  • Let's see how that Dow 14,000 looks when massive inflation  is really recognized.
  • The Dollar take the huge plunge after a brief rally.
  • Real unemployment stays at 17%.
  • The next leg down in housing continues.
  • Commercial real estate collapses.
  • Inflation adjusted Dow is less than 10K.
  • Gas at $5.00 per gallon.
  • We have our own version of food riots.

So, HamyWanger, the Dow is really a false metric as to overall economic health.  It is a creation of the Fed that has no true value that allows us to gage how we are doing... It is full of hopium.  It's something that the masses can see on the network news that tells them that "things are going well". 

But at a fundamental level, on the inside, people are confused because they are either out of work or underemployed and it costs more to feed their families and more to fuel up the car and after that there is less to spread around.  Forget about discretionary money.

Being right about what Bernanke has done and will do leads to the false argument that if the Dow reaches 14,000, the we are well on the road to recovery.  Wrong!  It just means that we have effectively exported most of the inflation which is causing big problems abroad that our leaders - and HamyWanger - look the other way on.  I shudder to think that there are people in America that think that Obama, who I voted for, and Bernanke and Jeethner are charting a good course for our nation.  I have neighbors who think like HamyWanger and it scares me.  Also, let's not even discuss the HUGE bubble that the Criminal Fed is blowing as a result of all of the money it is printing, and I agree with Jim Rickards here.  Quantative Easing is just a BS euphamism for printing money, so let's stop the nice talk about what the Fed is doing.  THEY ARE PRINTING MONEY OUT OF NOWHERE, FROM NOTHING, BACKED BY NOTHING.  So, HamyWanger, Dow 14,000 has little meaning for me.  BTW I finally got on the "right side" of this market, but I'll have to make 30% just to stay even, accounting for the destruction of the dollar and inflation.

It will be a pyrrhic victory for Bernanke and Obama if the Dow reaches 14,000 on the Bloomberg screens, but our country teeters on the brink or ruin.

This is not an economic recovery, this is a constructed manipulation. I agree that the stock market is going to go higher, that does not mean the economy has recovered.

I think 36,000 is a cool-headed conservative estimate. We've been up 9 out the last 10 weeks. Stocks have only retraced more than 100 points once in 6 months.

Thank you Tyler. I was debating on wheather to buy some more APPL and Goog. You are a great help. Please change name of website to Infinity long. I get 30% finders fee for the idea.

Only if the S&P is below 1500 at the time! Otherwise they will let the free market dominate for at least 60 days.  You remember what happened last time they allowed that to happen right? (May June 2010)  Oops nevermind, QE3 it is.


p.s. Moneyball author Micheal Lewis on CNBC today - looks like he has a good article on how the investment banks and stoopid commercial banks helped bring down Ireland.  Video here

The question is, are they expecting the data to be weaker than expected? I'm thinking "yes".

Can we NOW follow Egypt's example? PLEASE?????? Or must Americans wait until they are paying $2500 for a loaf of bread and selling their children off into prostitution to fill the tank?

This is getting more than a bit ridiculous and the apathy and servility being displayed by the American people regarding these policies is more than a little alarming.

Hey Egypt's people won! Now it's our turn!
