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

  • FED SAYS IT `WILL PROVIDE ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION AS NEEDED'
  • FED REPEATS EXCEPTIONALLY LOW RATES AT LEAST THROUGH LATE 2014
  • FED SEES INFLATION OVER MEDIUM AT OR BELOW MANDATE LEVEL
  • FED TO KEEP REINVESTING HOUSING DEBT TO MORTGAGE SECURITIES
  • FED SAYS HOUSING SECTOR REMAINS DEPRESSED
  • LACKER DISSENTS FROM FOMC DECISION

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.

Full redline:

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 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.

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

“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.”

  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Lie 

 

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

Every team should challenge the outcome of these matches, and they should restructure the event in order that winners win and losers lose.

Looks like they watch gold & silver resistance at 1525/26 very closely. Don't fight the FED.

Good question. The speechwriting couldn't possibly take more than an hour, two at most, with interruptions. So what does that leave, besides food, debauchery, shorting the real economy, tinkering with smartphones and performing complex rituals?

Seriously, what the heck do they really do at those meetings?

Gold and Silver should have popped the top off the last resistant level and shoot up 45.00 and 5.00 and it didn't because it would reveal the whole scam. Did the opposite, they admitted, inflation will go up and Gold tanks, real nice.

I wouldn't count out the PMs.  The spot prices between gold and silver no longer appear perfectly ganged and their mutual attachment to the EURUSD seesaw has also lapsed lately, if only now and then.  I am a compulsive watcher of spot prices - actually it's my line of work - and those prices can indeed be meaningful if you watch them closely enough.  There are major paradigm shifts at play.

The Fed owns the gold market. Total control. Good luck to all. Actually, the Fed is in total control of the global economy and controls who should fail or win. Insolvent banks are still in business and broke bankers are still filth rich. That's all folks.

All Fed action has done lately is temporarily raise the prices of stocks and commodities. Hence, this lack of action is a blessing. Less monetized debt is better for everyone, even if you own a large stock portfolio.
