Fed's Beige Book Is Out

Tyler Durden's picture

Everyone will be scouring for apocalyptic suggestions (need.moar.NEW Kew - EEE) in the following...

  • FED SAYS `HIRING WAS STEADY OR SHOWED A MODEST INCREASE'
  • FED SAYS ECONOMY EXPANDED AT `MODERATE PACE' LAST MONTH
  • FED SAYS `AUTOMOBILE SALES GENERALLY REMAINED STRONG'
  • FED: `CONTACTS WERE SLIGHTLY MORE GUARDED IN THEIR OPTIMISM'
  • FED SAYS `INFLATION REMAINED MODEST ACROSS DISTRICTS'
  • FED SAYS MANUFACTURING EXPANDED, CONSUMER SPENDING WAS STEADY
  • FED ECONOMIC SURVEY COVERS PERIOD FROM LATE APRIL UNTIL MAY 25
  • FED SAYS DEMAND WAS STRONGEST IN AUTO AND STEEL MANUFACTURING

...And won't find them. So: just what basis will the Fed have to do more QE again? Paging Jon Hilsenrath: Jon? Jon?

Looks a little brighter than most expected...

quite a few 'anti'-QE words - Strong, Sustained, Increased, Improved

not many end of world words...
