FOMC Hints No Taper Despite More Optimistic Forecast, Bullard Is Second Dissenter - Redline Comparison

Tyler Durden's picture


The much-anticipated statement of the most powerful body in the world is upon us -


Ding Ding: we now have a new dissenter in addition to Esther George: James Bullard. And - as usual - there's a little in there for everyone aside from the fact that the rose-colored glasses view on the economy suggests that they will be, in factm, tapering at some point soon, which the market is not very happy with right now...

Pre-FOMC: S&P 500 Futs 1645, 10Y 2.21%, USDJPY 95.25, Gold $1375, Oil $98.50

May-to-June Redline comparison

Fucking way to go, Ben!

So what's the message?
The economy is falling apart, crisis mode maintained, fucking dismal crapola all around.

Let's have a panic.  Hows about a good olde fashioned panic?
Sounds good to me!
Hows about nobody has a fucking clue?
Hows about we're still in a Liquidity Trap?
Hows about there is no final demand, the world is weakening, monetary stimulus is gonna stay strong....
What the fuck else is new?

You'd just be validating him.  If he gets attacked by unstable people who read Zero Hedge, he'd figure he must have been doing something right.

A much better and more fitting approach?  Forget him.  Leave him to join Greenspan, wandering around the back corridors of Washington as a has-been, desperately hoping - in vain - to get invited back onto a television show so he can explain how misunderstood he was, and how everything that went wrong wasn't really his fault.

The Fed is neither clueless nor incompetent - this is going exactly per plan. This is about the desctuction of the dollar, and the US itself. That is the end game, and there can't be much doubt about it. Nobody is this stupid or incompetent - everything that is going on now have been planned for many years. It's show time now, and you can almost see The Bernank relishing every mkinute of that announcement.

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson

Cue the individual Fed-Heads to hit the airwaves and jawbone about tapering the next couple weeks.  They'll talk about it to keep the "speculators" from going hog-wild (as if they haven't already) but they won't actually do it.

That's been my position on this and I'm sticking by it.

A tapir (/?te?p?r/ TAY-p?r or /t??p??r/ t?-PEER) is a large browsing mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout. Tapirs inhabit jungle and forest regions of South America, Central America, and Southeast Asia. The four species of tapirs are: the Brazilian tapir, the Malayan tapir, Baird's tapir and the mountain tapir. All four are classified as endangered or vulnerable. Their closest relatives are the other odd-toed ungulates, including horses and rhinoceroses.
