Global Retaliation To QEternity Begin: BOJ Considers Additional Easing

Tyler Durden's picture


Last week it was the Fed crossing the Rubicon with infinite easing. We explained very clearly that the next steps would be everyone else joining the infinite easing party. Sure enough, here comes the first one:


Keep in mind that the BOJ already monetizes ETFs and REITs, the very instruments which the Fed will soon be forced to buy. And so it begins - because when it comes to pushing CTRL and P, over and over, it really doesn't take much skill.

It also means that the next round of purchases of precious metals will come from everywhere else, in addition to just the US.

Finally, those wondering why there was absolutely no response out of the market to news that previously would have sent stocks soaring, the answer, as we explained before, is simple: the Fed has literally shot itself in the foot... and the head. Because when you tell the market to price in QEternity, you just can't hope any more QE anywhere, anytime, out of anyone, will be a surprise.

I hear the Japanese have invented keyboards that have a dual CTRL-P key configurations. It'll be years before the FED gets their hands on one of these babies.

The Japanese are unmatched in their ability to deny reality.  They will buy JGB until the bitter end.  And it's going to be really fucking bitter.

Which is ironic considering how literal they can be when you do business with them.

I can sell them a panamax vessel full of corn and they throw a fit when they get the quality specs off, measured in parts per billion.

Their adult entertainment industry is also unmatched. The creativity that goes into those films are truly astounding. However, I think Bernanke wants to outdo the Japanese when it comes to the creativity of printing more money.

The Fed set off currency wars and maybe other Wars too


Dollar Index Headed for Rapid Collapse: Chart



Quantitative easing is really another word for currency wars. A weak U.S. currency puts continued pressure on the Japanese Yen, the Chinese Yuan, the South Korean Won, the Australian dollar and other currencies.

 Cheap money also fuels speculation and this money quickly drifts into commodity markets and the ETFs that help propel commodity market speculation. This is inflationary for food prices.

Money to the banks by the Fed buying MBS=

"Coordinated QE" has always been in the cards. The Fed is working with all the other CB, including probably China who really need a global recovery and they needed it yesterday.

You are entirely wrong, Kito, the dollar is NOT soaring today, nor has it done so on any other day.  The values of fiat currencies move in only ONE direction, and that is down.

What you are erroneously equating to "the dollar" is in fact the artificial and contrived US Dollar Index, which only "measures" the US dollar against several other, more or less equally depreciating fiat currencies (on an long outdated trade-weighted basis, no less).  You know as well as I do that the dollar, like any fiat currency, never GAINS value, only loses it.


(PS: I did not junk your comment, as it is one that is heard so often in financial circles, incorrect and misleading as it is.)

We may be wrong, but it is possible that Jim Rickards was still espousing TBTF and bailing out LTCM with the blessings of the Fed back in 2009, when it became all too clear that the only solution is a global currency race to the bottom and which others would rediscover as "Currency Wars".
