    The Fed has ended QE. And it won’t be launching a new program anytime soon. So when this rally ends and stocks collapse, the Fed won’t be coming to the rescue.

The Biggest Fed Money Pump Since Lehman Went Under...

Lehman For the week ended June 27, the Fed flooded the financial system with $76 BILLION in liquidity. Bill King of the King Report puts that number into perspective noting that it’s BIGGEST increase since September 22, 2008 right after Lehman Brothers collapsed. That’s right, the Fed just juiced the system as much as it did when Lehman Brothers went under. While a shockingly large single money pump, the Fed’s generally been flooding the system with liquidity at a pace equal to that of 2008 since the beginning of the year.

Dispatches from Occupied Territory - Of Open Minds and Closed People

Our collective insanity will only provide us with answers that sustain and validate our insanity. To assume that we can apply the same thinking processes and so-called logical train of thought to unravel the insanity is to believe that the insanity itself has the capability to be sane, an obviously insane conclusion. So what do we do?

Unemployment: It's More Than A "Soft Patch"

Unemployment As long as unemployment remains high and economic activity remains no better than flat there will be pressure on the Fed to meet its full employment mandate. QE is the only trick left in their bag. That will lead to further price inflation, a shot in the arm for the financial markets, but it will not lead to a boom in industrial activity or the estimated 250,000 new jobs a month that must be created over the next five years to create "full employment."

If You Thought 2008 Was Bad...

Politicians who have all been bought out by the banks have fallen for this charade so far. But it won’t last much longer. Banks may get you elected… but they can’t keep you safe from a populace that is rioting outside your door. So the banks will all be taking a BIG hit in the future. This in turn will kick off another 2008 episode along with food shortages, civil unrest, outbreaks in crime, bank holidays, and the like. It will, in short, be like what’s going on in the Middle East today (though NATO won’t be bombing us).

Commentary From the Resident BoomBustBlog Trader: Focus on Currencies

Now it could be time to look at charts on the EUR again. the natural fundamental trade is not EUR against USD or JPY, but to find a currency in a country will little or no debt. despite their own real estate bubble, from what i read, CAD or much better AUD and NZD might be candidates. CHF despite UBS and CSFB should be as well. notice how the Swiss authorities have tightened the management of these 2 institutions, pressing them to recapitalize as much as possible and targetting higher capital ratios than Basel III.
