FOMC Disappoints, Evans Dissents Wants More Easing: Full September-November Comparison Redline

Tyler Durden's picture


While expectations were for massive LSAPs and ZIRP to the moon, headlines from the FOMC statement so far appear to be disappointing:


Just as JPM "predicted", we now have our first dovish dissent courtesy of Charles Evans:

  • Voting against the action was Charles L. Evans, who supported additional policy accommodation at this time.

And here is the market coma as every vacuum tube is hoping Bernanke is holding out the surprise for the 2:15pm press conference.

Full redline:

i'm actually surprised that markets had rallied on the 2.5 percent gdp print, and other non-catastrophic data since they clearly added up to the fed having to delay qe3, especially after the inflation data came out. then again the market has to wait for earnings season to end before economic and fiscal reality hit hard. corporate reality may seem quite cheery, but thats about it.

I have to agree with Evans in this instance. This sluggish recovery is at risk of developing into a double dip recession without vigilant fiscal and monetary policy. Sure things look good now, but the future remains uncertain and Fed officials need to remain cautious.

Ben is like a goddamned spoiled slut.  Everyone knows Ben wants to put (print) out but he's upset because people have been calling him a slut.  So he won't put out until they start begging him to.  In the meanwhile, I can see Ben printing out thousands and thousands of useless documents in the privacy of his home for the sake of running his printer and letting out a huge sigh.

MDB is honeypot counter reverse troll. Robo is a straight up troll. But you are right, we are just starting on the Japaneese path, and yes it was brought to us by central planners. Community Re-Investment Act, repeal of Glass Stegal, NAFTA, The 70,000 page tax code that basically tells people the only things the economy needs, even though there is crap in there like taxes implemented as part of the spanish american war.

If I agreed with you and Evans....then we'd all be wrong.  There cannot be additional LSAP without driving commodity prices and, resultingly, inflation significantly higher.  The Fed's already printed overall inflation up to a 4% annual rate, with the average family's food bill going up over 6% and energy costs up over 19%.  The last I checked it's not part of the Fed mandate to keep the stock market freshly painted.

As a libertarian, not only do I disagree, I think you're a cock-sucking-statist asshole who should rot in hell with your Keynsian buddies.  Lemme tell ya something, you spout that nonsense down here in Texas, and it'd get real ugly real fast for ya.  Best stay in San Franscisco with your other progressive fags.  

The only viable solution is to crash the entire system.  It may prove to be difficult for the "sheep" who are too busy living life to pay attention, but that's their fault.  We need to have 25-30 years of extreme survival-of the-fittest hardship, but, in the end, it'd be worth it.  Sometimes civilization needs to burn to the ground to sow new seeds of growth.   

As for me.... guns, gold, and cans.  Fuck 'N A, I'm ready.  Bring it.

Sheeple losing everything?

I don't think so. 

Ok granted, any stupid sheeple with their wealth in bank accounts / bank safe deposit boxes / bank stocks / dollars / treasuries / etc would lose it all.  Like you perhaps?

Economic collapse of the banking system?

It wouldn't be economic collapse of the banking system.  It would just be collapse of the banking system.  The economy is a separate thing.

But don't worry, your beloved banking system won't be allowed to collapse.  Ben will print and print and print to keep bailing it out.

...which incidentally will steadily debase the currency, steadily steal more wealth from the sheeple, steadily push more of those sheeple toward poverty, which might have downward effect on the economy.

In fact it already has.  The depression (not recession) we're in now was caused by bailing out your beloved banking system.

This is total BS.  No new easing but they will continue to stockpile MBS like rednecks their spam, and they are holding rates near zero at the same time.  Inflation is down because deflation is massive.  Look at the housing market, Americans biggest investment; it is down huge over the summer, when housing is at its peak.

If deflation is massive, and deflation>inflation, even by a little, inflation is massive.  They are easing ad infinitum.

Lies and more lies from the one and only Fiat Ponzi frontmen of the Federal Reserve.

Housing, GDP, spending, etc are all down dramatically.  Lets say deflation is at 25%.  With nominal inflation at 10% (modest figure) that would mean real inflation is pushing 35%.  This makes since when one considers the only real gains in the market have come from real assets, ie precious metals/oil.  What have PMs gained YoY for the last decade (approximately)?

    waiting for the usual slowmo market decline to begin once todays latest rounds of bad news are "digested".

    tho, as always, lately, EUR/$ is reacting a little more rapidly...

    bafflingly slowmo market decline barely "accelerates" as EUR/$ legs down again.  

    who on earth is propping up stocks at these levels tho?  

    or we bracing for a relief rally in response to less horrible news than usual?

    Infinity just announced a new car called the Infinity-QE.

    It's incredibly expensive but with a specially arranged Federal Reserve Bank loan at 0.1% and no money down you can now drive the car of your dreams, regardless of whether you can afford it or not.

    Special clauses in the loan allow you to take out subsequent low interest long term loans that will provide you with enough cash to make the monthly payments so there's no risk - it's practically free money.

    After you have it paid off and the long term loans start to come due the Fed' will allow you to borrow even more and low rates for longer terms.

    It's a WIN WIN WIN, now get out there and drive away in your new Infinity-QE today!!!!!!!!!!!

    $1.50 is a great move...think about the fact that 20 years ago 1oz gold cost less than 1oz silver does today.

    20 years ago it was 1991. I didn't see any gold for sale at that price back then. Wasn't $250 (or thereabouts) the low point in the late 1990s? You should have said 78 years ago.  When Roosevelt confiscated gold, holders got paid $20.67 per ounce. Gold was then revalued to $35/ounce.

    Bad facts make for bad decisions, even if they make good stories.

    Shorting the living shit out of silver is one of their 'tools' for the recovery, IE, to keep the dim bulbs out of PMs. It would be cool to know what the balanced, real price of silver would be by now without all these patriotic interventions.. I'd suspect about 50 right now.

    Paper gold has been trying to create the "safe haven" illusion all week.

    Good luck maintaining that illusion when Greece defaults and Italy starts neglecting their payment schedule.

    What's the real price of gold these days?

    Could be $500 /oz or $5000 /oz and depends solely how motivated a seller is to part with his/her stash and how eager a buyer is to own phys.

    @ " downside risk.." yea, that's right.
    the risk is that the money system is like a
    blood sucking proboscis from the cold heart of
    a sea monster that sucks the life out of all
    life forms, including its own squid species, with
    no concern for anything. the beast feeds on
    its own freakin' offspring for christ sake.
    yea, i see a down side risk too,
    and it is disappointing. killer clowns from hell!!
    throw in the towel before you start wwIII and become
    forever associated with the destruction of all life on
    earth. Klowns !!! think of your offspring and the hell
    you are perpetuating.

    We Are On the Edge of World War III - Lyndon LaRouche
    A Warning by Lyndon LaRouche : we Are On the Edge of World War III - A speech by Lyndon
    LaRouche about the British Empire (Wallstreet and Lombardstreet) and a soon coming WW
    III! mixed with own Impressions. A serious charge against the banksters and their
    "evil Empire"! unfortunately this means that more than likely, humanity is
    about to learn once again some very harsh lessons that only suffering immensely
    illustrate. WW in this age will mean Billions die and suffer unimaginable horrors. On
    Saturday morning Lyndon LaRouche discussed the threat of a British-sponsored World War
    III, stating that the Middle East is the new Balkans; the trigger point has been
    carefully set up, and as the fuse is burning down on the financial resources to carry out
    that operation, the time for that operation to be launched, or defeated, is now.This is
    bad, bad stuff; I pray that cooler heads and that God prevail. ? As a 2nd front, like the
    invasion of Sicily which took Germany's attention off of Kursk; Pakistan can easily cut
    the US supply lines and perform a pincer movement to cut-off 200K US troops up in that
    hellhole Afghanistan, a modern day Stalingrad, the grave of the German 6th Army, possibly
    the grave of the USA.
    now back to your regular programming.

    Exactly how can the 10y be at 2% if no printing has been taking place? The Ben Bernanke has been printing the whole time. And exactly how can the national debt be inflated away with low inflation? It's all smoke in mirrors. The official announcement will come when he damn well feels like it.
