New POMO Schedule Released: Fed To Monetize $102 Billion In Next Month

Tyler Durden's picture


After the Fed "purchased" just over $97 billion in bonds in the last POMO schedule, according to the just released POMO schedule, Sack-Frost will monetize $102 billion in bonds between March 14 and April 11. From the release: "Across all operations in the schedule listed below, the Desk plans to purchase approximately $102 billion.
This represents $80 billion in purchases of the announced $600 billion
purchase program and $22 billion in purchases associated with principal
payments from agency debt and agency MBS expected to be received
between mid-March and mid-April" What should be disturbing for stock market bulls is that tomorrow, on the critical Day of Rage in Saudi, there will be no POMO, and thus stocks will be on their own...

It just don't matter if there will be QE 3 or QE 300.

Debtman will soon retire.

After that, Robbin takes over.

QE3 is 100% coming!!  But they could delay the announcement or state that QE will be ending sending the markets where they want them to go. 

The movement in the markets will again give them an easy sell of QE3. 

I am trying to say there could be a big dip in the prices of commodities before QE3 is announced or some kind of back door QE resumes.

My growing idea is that we will go to QE2 lite in June, i.e., no new QE but the Fed will not allow its balance sheet to shrink.  It's what they did before.  If oil and other commodities keep soaring, and with the Ron Pauls getting more traction, I don't think QE3 will be politically viable come June.  Maybe later in 2011 or 2012.  Thoughts?

QE3 will be a really hard sell with oil over 100.   I think they will do more of a QE lite or some kind of back door QE.

You never know. I remember this conference where an old timer recalled the story of the early 80s with Volcker cranking the rates up to what, 18% ? Nobody expected that to happen ever, and people though the world was going to end as well.

In the 1980s there was no housing bubble the FED is trying to prop up and banks that were insolvent.  If the FED raised rates, as they should, the banks would fail again.

As extreme as it may seem, I'm afraid it's needed for the global economic recovery to sustain.

A little inflation never harmed anyone. According to Dr. Paul Krugman PhD and Dr. Barack H. Obama, a high inflation (>20%) could even make Americans wealthier.

There is no difference between real and nominal. 

Some people say that inflation is a bad thing, but they're often lunatic, bigot, nerdy libertarians. 

Actually, inflation is what makes people richer. The Weimar Germany experience was not a failure. This is a libertarian lie. 

Most Germans got wealthier during the 1922-1923 period, and it was also very good for equities.

Needless to say, I have been a fan and avid reader for about 2 years. Just didn't feel like making my own account.

I love the fact ZH respects free speech. Use it or lose it.

On the weekends I like to go to shows with people about my age. Lots of anger, hate and disgust. Yet, the people respect the hell out of each other!

In addition to handing out flyers for local shows, I would very much like to handout promos for ZH. Perhaps William Banzai can come out with something in the future :)

I don't know what it is about Erin, but I just don't like it. She comes off very dry and usually looks uninterested in what she is discussing.

Both Trish and Becky are smarter than her, IMO.

If they stop the QE, global deleveraging (private and public) and the subsequent flight to safety will hold rates down.  Long-term you are right.  The ponzi scheme will ultimately fail.  But if the USA can float as much debt (relative to GDP) as the Japanese then we have some time before all faith is lost in the credit worthiness of the US government.  We are still the reserve currency you know ... and its not like we don't have any competition in the race to the currency debasement bottom!

The following is reproduced as an alleged copy that was sent to Republican Senators in Wisconsin:

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me have decided that we've had enough. We feel that you and the people that support the dictator have to die. We have tried many other ways of dealing with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand for it any longer. So, this is how it's going to happen: I as well as many others know where you and your family live, it's a matter of public records. We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a nice little bullet in your head. However, we decided that we wouldn't leave it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the message to you since you are so "high" on Koch and have decided that you are now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a demorcratic process. So we have also built several bombs that we have placed in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent. This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I won't tell you all of them because that's just no fun. Since we know that you are not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided to make it perfectly clear to you. If you and your goonies feel that it's necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families and themselves then We Will "get rid of" (in which I mean kill) you. Please understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel that it's worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!

I have been doing independent research on 9/11 for sometime. Just like I have been reading economics especially the free library at

BTW what makes you all think that the Fed/PPT is only using POMO to manipulate the market?

well, i suppose if you discount 'illegally funding the U.S. deficit' as a legitimate use of POMO, then i guess i see your point... :/

The White House should consider sending disaster relief teams into itself.

No fucking way, Copper chart showed it was time to go and time to go it is. If you are not short already you are too late.

+1 - once some of these commodities and other large etf's broke down - it was time to go short - Copper broke down, retailers RTH, and financials XLF.

That was my sign...  2 days ago threw me off.  But even the nasdaq stayed below the 10 dma...

Could get nasty within the next several sessions.

It is not so much a guess of whether their will be a QE 3-4-5 etc as it is a matter of when the orchastrated current events are well enough in place to allow the implementation of their NWO. When the current world financial system can be brought to into chaotic submission in the way that allows for their elite new order to survive, that is when they take their final Q.

My growing idea is that we will go to QE2 lite in June, i.e., no new QE but the Fed will not allow its balance sheet to shrink.  It's what they did before.  If oil and other commodities keep soaring, and with the Ron Pauls getting more traction, I don't think QE3 will be politically viable come June.  Maybe later in 2011 or 2012.  Thoughts?

I agree and apparently so does the world's biggest private bond trader.  The FED is walking a very thin line.  Its credibility gap is starting to draw too much attention to itself.  The public is starting to question what is going on behind the curtain of Oz.

"What should be disturbing for stock market bulls is that tomorrow, on the critical Day of Rage in Saudi, there will be no POMO, and thus stocks will be on their own..."


...there will be no scheduled POMO, but there might be a special "air lift" of bills showered over NYC...just in case....not a golden shower but a green one, in keeping with our new found environmental awareness...and in honor of St. Patrick's day.

ya, Tyler is the man.

I posted some videos of Marc Faber earlier...

He has a great way of studying information and storing things into the mind easily. REALLY HELPS WITH SCHOOL!


What to read and how to read it

"Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense." Gertrude Stein

For intelligent investors to read, watch, listen to and surf all the business news that is now available is simply impossible. We must be extremely selective in the allocation of our information-gathering time. In addition, it is not only important what we see but how and when and what we do with the information we collect. My memory looks like a filter with large holes; I take notes and file articles; I always read with a pair of scissors in my hand. I have files on a very wide range of subjects, such as capitalism, globalization, poverty, economic history, psychology, sports, smuggling, economic geography, fraud, the Wall Street industry, dubious practices, mutual funds, art, collectibles, countries, industries, forecasts by market gurus, plagues, commodities, economists, prostitution, brokerage reports, big lies, the IMF, business failures, the World Bank, economic sophistry and literally hundreds more.

I also think that, given my poor memory, it is important for me to file the collected information myself. First of all, it forces me to really read everything in order to know which file something belongs in, and if I file it myself, I may actually manage to find it again. I photocopy articles that I find particularly informative and put a copy of each in many different files, which increases the odds of finding the desired information again.

In general it is quite useless to read something without taking notes or filing it. Ninety-five percent of what we read in today's paper will be forgotten tomorrow morning. (Do you remember what you read in yesterday's paper?)

How should you read? If you have an important meeting at 10 a.m., I doubt that you can or should do serious reading just before rushing to that meeting. Also, if you are continually interrupted by telephone calls and colleagues barging into your office, your ability to concentrate will be significantly curtailed. Demanding articles and reports ought to be taken home or read in peace on a train or plane. I read with a glass of whiskey to boost my spirit, usually between midnight and 4 in the morning, after dinner and a nap.

I read just about anything that comes across my desk, but most of it very superficially. In the morning I focus on the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times and the International Herald Tribune. I think that the three are fabulous papers, each for different reasons. The Wall Street Journal I read for its coverage of the U.S. economy, its outstanding editorials and articles about the lives and economic conditions of ordinary people in America. Personally, I don't know any other country in the world with such a great paper on domestic economic issues.

The mental digestion and interpretation of what we read is the most important part of acquiring knowledge. That is why I suggested earlier that you read demanding articles and reports only when your mind is completely at peace and best of all with some nice wine or whiskey.

Remember this, too: Don't read only for the sake of acquiring money and knowledge; read also for the beauty of the language and for the pleasure that a well-written report or book can give you.
