memo to MHFT or should that be from MHFT
NO? That means QE III is on the way!
QE3 yes, but under a new name LM1 (Liquidity Measures 1) followed by SEM (Special Economic Measures)...and on and on...
It will be called "Zim-Stim" - (short for Zimbabwe Stimulus).
The next series will be called 'Foreclosure Easing'...forcing the Banks to lend, agian, and again, and again. This is uberleverage for the banking uberspeculator...the creation of a Housing Derivative Market.
well that does assume that a total crash is not, in the end, the real goal.
Sure you've read all these truths before ...
Printers online. Check!
Analysts ready. Check!
Plausible deniability. Check!
...and lift-off of QE3, paving the way for further economic collapse and transfer of wealth never before seen.
It's not needed... good.
Then give back the $25bil, cover all your silver shorts and stop manipulating Ag you fucking bastards.
O and sorry for missing the last 7 mortgage payments assholes, this underwater squater wants you to produce the paperwork... as soon as Linda Green gets a chance to sign the docs.
Linda Green is bigger than Santa Claus.
I am convinced our gubmint masters will do anything to cover up any and all previous fuckups with even more outrageous fuckups as necessary.
How can anyone take what JPM or Goldman says seriously. They are the two most corrupt companies on the planet.
Yes, and by proxy own the government. No matter one party or the other, they have both by the financial "short" hairs!
Didn't you see "Too Big To Fail" on HBO???
Hank Paulson sold all his Goldman stock before moving to Treasury...no conflict of interest. Fed and Treasury care about the American People, not their buddies at Goldman and JP. No sir, no conflict at all..
Once graft starts, it's so, so, so very hard to stop....
Well, it would be rather a faux pas to start QE3 without a TEOTWAWKI event first. Ergo, it is impolite to 'see it coming' because that undermines the time-honored tradition of 'whocoodanew?'...
Diversion almost seems unnecessary with the public slumbering along.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking.
This diversion is targetting ZH readers.
Why does the Fed care about political backlash? They don't go through elections and Congress doesn't have the power to stop anything they want to do.
Congress if they had testes, could pass a law today,and do away with the Fed.
Get enough votes from both parties, and the Pres cannot even veto it.
Bye bye Bennie & the Jets.
You forget how the Fed deals with pesky elected officials?
They don't, but they don't like to get called in to testify. Then BB has to try to explain to our idiotic congressmen very basic economic facts and terms. Oh and he might run into Ron Paul in the restroom and have to flip him the bird.
The fact is that the Fed is independent of congress. They don't even have to tell them what they are doing (even after the fact). Nor do congress want to know what the Fed is doing. If they did, they'd have to try to understand economics, which they don't.
BB will do whatever he wants, and hide it. We'll find out many years later what was done, if ever.
when the only tools you have are cover ups and subsidies
There was great political opposition to TARP too, it even failed a House vote, until they crashed the stock market in threat.
Expect the same this time, just like after QE1. Should get a nice market correction in a few weeks. If there is no further printing it will turn into an all-out crash.
That was a beautiful day.
if they crash the market again I swear i will cover shorts and get long and play their game like a nice sheeple
I hope he's right, but expect he's wrong.
Re: Yellen's comments.
I don't think either "option" will work because if/as the "soft patch" (sounds strangely reminiscent of last summer, doesn't it?) gets any softer, the market will already be anticipating an extention of the dates of the first interest rate hike and the Fed's "contraction" of its balance sheet "assets" (if they can be called that). If the softness continues, they will already be baked into the cake.
QE3 is a done deal as far as I'm concerned. So is the resulting inflation!
JP Morgan lying through their silver plated teeth. But no QE3 till the public and CONgress screams for it.
Yes, it's all about fear and brainwashing at this point.
"Help me, I'm drowning" (Congress to the FED)
Then throw them the anchor (QE3).
Stealth QE3 at first. If the market drops, say, 5-10%, then the hounds will be screaming for QE3 outright - the hounds being Congress, who will demand that their insider trading deals remain in the green no matter what. Oh, and the banks too.
The only way to win trading is to copy bank prop desks or Congressional trades. Of course, infinite greed means Goldman will sell Congressmen shit wrapped in yellow foil and then short it... Until then, I doubt anyone in power will care enough to put them behind bars.
QE-lite 2 bitchez.
As long as there is something left to loot NO ONE will STOP PRINTING! LET'S RIDE THE WAVE AND MAKE SOME MONEY OFF THESE BASTARDS!
Ok fine so there will be no QE3. So the US will service and repay its debts in real terms instead of inflated dollars. I don't believe they can.
What a sack of horse manure.
They have NO options but to do so.
And they know it.
So do we.
If you don't know all of the details of the deal yourself then wager that JP Morgan is lying. It is probably an absolute.
This is french for "Please don't buy anymore PM's -- because the dollar will be stronger with no QE" sorry Morgue - lets see your shorts!
JP Morgan is the oracle of lies.
"Oft before I swore but was I sober when I swore."
Deflationary depression = Riots in the streets
INflation = Higher prices and a few complaints
QE3 in some form is coming....100% guaranteed imho
Ferolli didn't really say there would be no QE3, he just thinks it is politically dead until there is enough deterioration to foment an excuse.
Secret Off Book 0.01% Loans for everyone except "We the People"!
Do you need money?
Are you are a known terrorist?
No Worries!! the FED has you covered! with a special, off book Loan! Look we gave Gaddafi $100's of Millions of U.S. Dollars while the U.S. Citizen was forced from their homes by illegal seizure!
The Politicians are owned by us.. so don’t worry.. the courts are owned by us.. so dont worry..
Come on down today for you backdoor, off book loan(s)! You won’t be disappointed! Just ask Gaddafi!
This special will last for a really long time so no rush, successfully operating now for over the last year!!
SHHHHHHH.. don’t tell “We the Sheepeople!” LOL!!!
Technically our loans don’t count as U.S. debt proper!
So there is no need to raise the debt ceiling!
Time to make those scumbag, working class, out of work free loaders squirm!!!
Forced Austerity! Let’s see what we can push out of these sheep!!!
Thats all thats ahead for america, more impoverishing and 3rd worlding.
This further supports my call back on March 30th that QE3 will be delayed ... but it will come (http://bit.ly/ehcdGc)
In a nutshell, there is little political support / economic basis for further QE ... until the floor starts to fall out again and QE3 does find political / economic support.
In the meantime, we are heading into potentially volatile times with the potential to damage / create wealth .... and I don't think the powers that be mind this scenario at all.
George ... The Greek ... From Canada
Oh no...no more QE? Who will buy the XRT then?
BTW...what a masterful arbitrage trade on that ETF today. Simply magical. You have to tip your hat, really, at the scheme which works...until it doesn't.
I've never seen an entire group of stocks trade so obviously into hurricane like headwinds...even as one after another of the individual names contained within have taken massive hits. The trade now has narrowed to a few key names. Nothing like a thin and narrow bid to create wealth.
Thank you for this wasteland, Ben Bernanke. Thank you too, Hank Paulson [even as HBO romanticises your epic heist]. Thank you Mary Schapiro for being so patient with criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers, giving them so much time to unwind their crimes by looking the other way and keeping your staff so busy meeting relentlessly with bankers in order to best determine which SEC laws can just be forgotten about.
HA HA great post as usual Cdad!
Since they are overleveraged anyway they just don't want anybody to get a jump on them...fuck JPMorgue...!
0.04% is over leveraged?
what do you mean sir? how dare you lead people to think that more leverage than before the crash is a bad thing! shame on you.. Shame! On!! You!!!
Everyone go back to grazing.. it all good! no worries! everything is under control and going to plan!
the economist confirms the fed is a political animal. and to think to see inside (audit) the fed would compromise their independence. looks like the fed can be cowed afterall with pushback according to the economist.
i think it's spin. they'll find a way to do qe3 in one form or the other.
