Fed Folds: Will Do Open-Ended MBS Buying, Extends Operation Twist

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Bernanke has acquiesced and is now the 4th branch of the status quo- and all is well in the world:

  • *FED TO KEEP POLICY STIMULATIVE FOR `CONSIDERABLE TIME'
  • *FED WILL ADD TO PURCHASES IF LABOR MARKET DOESN'T IMPROVE
  • *FED DOES NOT SAY WHEN MBS PURCHASE PROGRAM TO END
  • *FED TO BUY $40B MBS MONTHLY, CONTINUE `OPERATION TWIST'
  • *FED TO BUY MBS, EXTENDS ZERO-RATE POLICY INTO 2015

To summarize:

  • The good news: The Fed's NEWER, OPEN-ENDED and NEVERENDING QE is bigger, longer, and has a Retina display (however its battery life is far shorter).
  • The bad news: The Fed has now confirmed it is merely a sad, political, self-frontrunning caricature of what a central bank should be.

Because this is my fucking Plan!

To have the Federal Reserve Corporation stuffed to its fucking rafters with mountains of stinking fecal toxic waste matter, that it destroys itself from within and blows itself up.

It's a very complicated plan. I've been working on this plan a very long time.

Now just go along with it and shut the fuck up about it.

And where does the toxicity go?  It can't just disappear.  Someone, somewhere, is on the hook.  And that somoene is you and I, which we will never pay, so the only avenue to resolve is inflate away the debt.  Default won't happen, and neither will repayment.

I guess I'll cut against the consensus here and just state that today's announcement, which focused on MBS, was an explicit admission that The Bernank & Gang are not committing to bridging the upcoming fiscal cliff (as of today, at least).

Unless the Fed turns Twist into steroid-injected Twister, the debt ceiling and deficit spending of unknown quantities going forward have not been addressed.

Let us see how this shakes out, but by focusing on MBS and not treasuries, this really could be a very big and tangible sell the news event, regardless of initial, kneejerk reaction.

And still the banks won't lend, Mr. Smith won't be employed with a real wage, and consumption will only be in apple products.  Kids will go into debt for college without employement on the other side (especially lawyers - until Congress, filled with them, creates enough new regs for lawyers to get back to full employment).

This all just takes us into more debt, as much as they may want to call sanitization.  Once i rates start to rise, watch out on servicing the debt with 50% GDP. Ugly bugly.  Lower mortgage rates won't move more houses if mortgages aren't leant.  Just saying.

No. Wrong.

 

40 billion times 9.  Every Hard dollar may be loaned out 9 times to credit facilities.

You live in a fractional reserve banking and lending system.  40 billion becomes 360 billion of credit per month to be vested FROM bonds to derivatives to pay 30 year old bonds with 12% payments coming due.

 

Over the next three years they will release, 12 trillion dollars worth of credit.

 

Get it straight.

Credit money creation is not as certain as raw high powered Federal balance sheet money expansion, but then again, the money multiplier/credit limit from QE1 and QE2 has not been utilized either.

I don't understand. Won't most of this "money" end up being held as foreign cash reserves? It will never really enter the US system - well at least until Romney gets annointed by TPTB and starts banging the drum of tax free cash repatriation for corporations.  As long as corporations continue to sit on record amounts of "cash" and all of that "cash" is in the hands of a very tiny group I am not sure how hyperinflation could ever happen. I just think that the evolvement of the country will continue into 2 distinct societies - One that holds the vast, vast, vast amount of the "cash" and the rest of us who are forced to work as wage slaves in order to pay off our "cash" debts or end up spending time in corporate run prisons.

While reports are preliminary it is said that the black hole, certain to siphon off the few productive resources and assets of an already staggering domestic economy, initially occurred when the self collapsing vortex that is comprised of Fed Chairman Bernake's titanic ego, hubris, and intellectual dishonesty imploded from the quantam fluctuations eminating from his irrepresable urge to "Ease".

Physical metals I understand, but REITs?  They are not even actual properties that you own, can live in or burn down as you see fit.  They are paper assets, like certain others I'd shudder to hold.

Pretty much.

And to think it was that (in)famous paper - with it's unfortunate helicopter reference - that dripped arrogance and oozed hubris (with a dash of thinly-disguised racism slopped in for good measure) while promising ... PROMISING that "It" could never ... ever in a gazillion years "Happen Here", due to the virtuosic wizardry of American policy know-how with "unconventional measures" around the "zero bound" that won good old Bennie the coveted post of FedHead to begin with.

So now ... what? ... retirement Bennie? No Plan B? Sure ... since Plan A is: hit it with a hammer, Plan B is: hit it with a BIGGER hammer. Sure ... that oughta do it.

Neo-Kenesian arse-bandits are a fucking fatal disease! Death by intellectual corruption.

Right!  An improved job market would eventually exert upward pressure on labor costs which would ultimately act as a headwind to profit growth which would weigh on stock prices... which is diametrically opposed to Bernanke's doctrine of paper asset reinflation.

Now what would make you think they have the desire, let alone the capacity, OR ability to help the labor market? That's merely their facade of integrity.

What they are doing (in a far from desperate manner) is inflicting a monetary "Chinese Water Torture," which, in essence is the act of maintaining the destruction in the form of a controlled collapse, in order that they benefit from it. Any benefits that may actually accrue to outsiders is merely the price they pay to maintain the facade, usually occurring in spite of their efforts, rather than due to them.

Sharky, You dont get it do you ? If employment is allowed to gain a foothold in this country the inflation created through investment, production and output would create so much inflation domestically that the system could not handle it; while they try and print the banks back to solvency. That is why we import everything we need so that we can export the freashly printed dollars to the rest of the world.

If they lose the Petrodollar/Reserve Currency status that the dollar has it will be the end of the dollar. Period !
