Prayers Denied As Fed Disappoints - Full Statement Redline

Tyler Durden's picture


And not only did the Fed disappoint, but it didn't even extend ZIRP through 2015. Sorry Hilsenrath, better luck next time


And if markets are surprised by this goose-egg according to which the September FOMC will at best be the ZIRP extension that was supposed to take place today just so Congress can sort its own mess out with the Fed, wait until Draghi confirms what we said last week: that he was merely posturing and is totally impotent without the Buba's blessing. Then you will see pain in a market which is 5% higher than where it would be absent his headfaked posturing.

For those watching QSN today, note we are only about 1/2 way through convergence. There's still plenty more downside to go.

HAHA! It's inflation of easing action! Instead of giving us printing to prop up the market, now we are given only vague promises of printing. And when that starts getting ineffectual?


Also so funny to read in MSM about good news from these meetings. What good news could there possibly be? "We are so fucked we are going to counterfeit vast amounts" would be good news?

Obama doesn't care


He has a choice between being a masterful, Machiavellian politician like Bill Clinton (good for one's career) or a great transformative leader like Abraham Lincoln (good for the nation)




Obama #1 priority is to ensure the establishment



Obama is a puppet says black comedian

Obama inherited $500,000 from his grandmother who was Vice President of Bank of Hawaii


Obama's father alraedy had a family (wife + kids) in Kenya, when he married Obama's mother (onyl after he got her pregnant), then ditched her to study phD in economics at Harvard. Obama Sr.'s life fell into drinking and poverty, from which he never recovered.


Romney is son of American Motors Corp, CEO and 3 time governor of Michigan, who also ran for president in 1968. As a student never had to worry about money as he took flights to see his girlfriend on weekend, bought a home, etc. WITHOUT A JOB. On his missionary to france, he lived in one of richest neighborhood in Paris others call "palace", which eventually became the building for the embassy of the United Arab Emirates. worth as much as $12 million. His wife is typical gold digger as she never really had a job and had majored in useless French Lit in college.


Choose from one elite for another, these people never knew what it is to be like to be without money or parental financial support.

it will lose some more for a while because the market is going to tank bigtime.
maybe the algo was there to do something tomorrow to keep it from crashing,who knows.
but the worse it gets, the more gold might really pop up now because it will get really clear that the last big printjob will soon come which will knock down the dollar and the euro in a big way.

not me;  i'll only play in casinos for years now

but we can take solace that the FX tail has wagged the dog for another day, another week

re-test and repeat of last week?  buy time?  keep everything screwed down tight?

or is this the down-draft "like last year"?  that FX spike is pure "there are no markets--only interventions" so be careful

these guys have done pretty well painting the charts recently;  not that that means they won't lose control by 4PM eastern, of course...

...  ... ...  they coulda pushed this either way, imo, as i've said, with the FX;  i just guessed wrong maybe b/c it seems to be going to risk0ff rather than uncharacteristically staying on risk0n a bit longer

so this was the obvious guess after last friday's risk0n, but the dollar is blowing right thru 83 as i edit, so there is that deflationary "commodity price" brake being applied

but the 10 & 30 years are just starting to 'recover' from a significant price dip here today, so things seem a little schizoid about the whole dog & pony show, to me

i'm surprised equites seem as strong as they are right now

That idiot that declared that Hilsenrath is actually the Fed Chairman was just proven to be an idiot.

Hilsenrath is just the fool that dangles the QE carrot in front of the market to give the HFT algos something to levitate on.

Since 'Fed Day' is so important to The Global Economy, it should be a HOLIDAY!
Hmm, what to name it? 

How about:

1. "00000110 00000110 00000110", which is hard for carbon based units to pronounce so we'll call it 'Zerones Day' (which sounds like Zambonis).

2. or "SSDD-Day"

Fed is boxed in because of Biflation: can't ease more due to rising prices which will just accelerate deflationary trends in employment, wages and consumption (ie, off shoring, downsizing, layoffs and wage deflation)

Why do anything when you can use just the expectation to pump markets, they now know that any new QE will be viewed as the last, and quickly be faded, so just jawbone infinitum! They can now use the MSM to pump "September" headlines.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

However accurate that alleged quote may be in describing what Hitler and Goebbels practiced,

it is historically inaccurate to claim Goebbels actually said that. There is no source to reference that quote.

What can be properly attributed is that Goebbels accused NAZI Germany’s enemies of using a ‘big lie’ tactic.

“The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.”




Since we are on the topic of big lies, another more recent one repeated often by US politicians (including Obama and Romney) is that Ahmadinejad said “Israel should be wiped off the map.”


Actually, Ahmadinejad said nothing of the kind.

 “Wiped off the Map” Fabricated
