It's like a drunk who orders and says he'll quit drinking and empties his glass on the floor while ordering a new bottle :)
I highly suspect that QE3 is coming. I think this says it all ..."Lockhart says QE3 is possible if the US faces another downturn".
So, what does this mean for Gold, Silver, and oil in the short term?
Any excuse to start QE3 beats none, I guess.
I guess that explains the (small) dip in PMs and oil.
Possibly related to Fisher's drivel, but it looks like the retail bloodbath in oil may have begun in earnst this morning. Weak hands are now being slain wholesale.
Fed Policy: If you can't dazzle them with brilliance...baffle them with bullshit.
3 card monty..
Watch this hand while this hand does something else over here..
+1. Just a lot of jawboning. Jawboning is all they have left. Frankly, it's all they ever had. Fiat is a faith-based initiative for money.
Praise the Lord and pass the fiat.
Here, sit down and have a nice cold cup of kool aid. Bullshit flavor. Now with 20% more lead.
He was saying QE3 wouldn't be needed less than a month ago...
Now it is...
Tomorrow, maybe it won't...
It appears that any changes that could negatively affect GDP to the negative these days....we'll just throw $500 billion at it.
No fundamentals are pointing to an end of the dollar collapse . Unless the FED decides to abruptly end QE2 and line the pockets of some friends out of nowhere that is no way a top .
The other fundie possibility is the euro starts to break apart publically . 1 % it is a top 99% it is not .Huge payoff if that bet hits though .
QE programs will not end. It is all they got left to give the appearance of normal.
They are doing 'management by trial balloon' to see what the market wants.
At every decision point, in order to predict what will happen, always ask yourself, 'What would most benefit the banks?'
Dow gapped up 33 points on the open... That is a strong signal that bs regarding an end to QE is ... well, bs...
duh......which way did he go doc....which way did he go?
Jawboning just to stop the dive in the dollar.
they have no choice but to monetize the debt. There are not enough buyers at the current interest rates.
Marc Faber was right....he said the fed will "print and print and print"
The won't know until Immelt and Dimon tell them what to do.
our PM covered QE2 in his morning meeting today: http://www.hedgefundlive.com/content/dm-in-the-am-3-7-11
You know, it's almost as if these self-proclaimed Masters Of The Universe (tm) have precisely zero idea what the hell is happenening and what, if anything, to do about it.
Of course, that could be precisely the sort of impression they want to give - distracting us while our pockets are continuing to be picked (h/t silvertrain).
But I think I'll stick with "they're clueless and we're doomed" until further revelations push me the other way.
I don't know why you got junked for that. I'll stick with "they're clueless as how to make it look like the system is working for everyone" or, "they're clueless about how to go back to hiding behind the curtain un-noticed" or something like that.
Probably the same guy/gal who junked silvertrain junked me. Who knows and who cares.
I know I'm going to sound like the stupid noob here, but can someone please explain how QEx is not the same as my credit card company TELLING me I have to borrow more money?
Don't worry - you will only be labeled a stupid noob if you post charts of stock XYZ that is up 4% today
That is the most astute noob question I've read in quite the while. Congrats!
Jon Hilsenrath of the WSJ is the Fed's straw man:
"Barring a surprising turn in the economy or inflation, it seems increasingly likely that the securities purchase program, known by some as quantitative easing, is likely to end in June as scheduled"
Ben said, "Consumers don't want to buy gold"... "They want to buy clothes, food, energy, etc".
Is the FED trying to tell us they are about to RIP system liquidity and take down the economy again for another harvest?
I am not a millionarie like the rest of you folks and cannot pay high power financial brokers to tell me the truth.
My family is in trouble!
I bought Gold thinking all my meger, yet hard earned dollars would be worthless.
My grandfather lived through the Great Depression. He is still alive and tells me some of the bad stories.
I bought 6 gold coins but am ready to sell them if we are headed for another Depression.
I am only 20. Worked all summer 2010 so I could buy GOLD in the fall!
LOL you sound like a shill - 20, bought gold, family in trouble?
A shill, eh? for whom exactly?
Perhaps you are disappointed America isn't collapsing quickly enough for your liking?
Junk for you. People like you make me sick!
Same thoughts uninterested observer , there was something slightly creepy about your post baby Blythe.
Perhaps you will have to work just a little bit harder on your PSYOPS routine baby.
Don't hold more than a small percentage of assets in PMs.
Don't listen to goldbugs.
That is all.
Oh, and your whole persona is creepy. :shudders:
your avatar is creepy. So there, I guess we are even ;)
"I am not a millionarie like the rest of you folks and cannot pay high power financial brokers to tell me the truth."
I don't know which part of this more incorrect; that we are all millionaires, or that we get the "truth" from high powered financial brokers. LOL at that.
So, you bought 6 gold coins (of course the lack of size infers 1 oz) by a summer job of 1 season...were you selling your 'man-hole' (also known as boypussy when in regards to 20 year olds)?
Yeah, you're just a little innocent hard working boy with a screen name that doesn't correspond to your lack of confidence and knowledge.
Please, go collect your .gov check and then actually invest in some PM's for real this time, O.K?
Your master will soon consume you as he only has allegiance so long as you are useful (not to mention the remaining time that he can remain anyone's master).
Maybe the higher demand for dollars if oil goes ballistic may reduce the Feds role in storing excess reserves.
The dollar needs higher oil prices as far as I can see it.
I remember a German farmer expressing as much in a few words as the whole subject requires; "money is money, and paper is paper." - Thomas Paine
Benjamin Franklin! A Modest Enquiry into the Nature and Necessity of a Paper Currency in 1729
Kind of the complete opposite of what Dr. Paul talks about.
Who is being truthful here, folks?
Little advice Baby , don't trust anyone - most of us have skin in the game including the various Tyler's and the somewhat strange quixotic character of Ron Paul
If you want to protect yourself diversify - if you want to make a killing you need to take some risks.
Wow. You are twenty. You scrimped and saved to buy physical gold you can't afford to keep, you disagree with Ron Paul, composed a naively written first post, and then followed it up citing three hundred year old text on fiat currency, and have an oh so clever monniker.
ZH, meet our newest Troll???
Why do you wish that on me? GO AHEAD AND DELETE ME! LIFE SUCKS anyways
I activley promote the work Tyler does and send links to everyone I know!
People scratch and shake, but don't know what they can do.
The government prints the money. All we can hope and strive to do is get some of our hands on the meger droppings.
Btw, Franklin is a hero of mine. His life story and work is absolutely fascinating!
An end to QE means end game for the treasury market and the dollar. I just don't see how they can get out of the corner they've painted themselves into.
Here's a great idea... realizing that your .gov check is losing 2-3% of purchasing power per month, it might work out quite nicely if you remove that same % from your alphabet letter sponsors 401k and invest it in silver or gold. This way, you could offset the reduction of your real income loss as you spout out dis-info.
You win both ways!
I am only 20 years old. 401k means nothing to me.
I never planned on living past 25... I am on record saying that.
I just want my Mom, Dad and baby sister to live on and stay protected
Prophylactics are a great way to stay protected, and a useful preventative measure, and there are many different brands to choose from. Several years ago, and after a huge amount of due diligence, I finally chose the variety pack for my very own non-existent baby sister.
In a SHTF scenario, being a sibling who is slated to die in 4 years, this is the most caring way to show your sis that you love her, especially after you're gone.
Warms my heart to pass along info like this to you. All the best in the afterlife to you.
A big, genuine, sincere hug from me.
If you were a guy I would advise you not to worry long term as there will probably be heavy duty manufacturing jobs coming back to the states withen 5 years or so if this devaluation continues - but there will also be various service / tertiary industries also so don't worry be happy and enjoy your twenties.
