DUH. The squid wants a selloff so they can get QE. They always throw clients under the bus.

The wizards have QE already baked into the cake...but it's really only brownies with ex-lax.

It's so funny to me. People, usually people with some money, still seem to think that the ruling elite are interested in "fixing the economy". No, they don't give a shit about you mr. upper middle class/lower tier rich just like they don't give a shit about starving Africans. They care about power and control. They also have zero national loyalty. The only reason they are still in the US and Europe is because there is so much ossified capital there and it's more or less their fortress.

So they care about buildings and some of the infrastructure. The people, the "economy", they don't give two shits about an economy that benefits you. They care about their own personal wealth, power and privilege. The days of throwing down scraps of filet mingnon to the lower tier rich and upper middle class are over. The sooner folks get that through their head the sooner we actually have a shot at changing things for the better.

Still having loyalty to the powers that be means they will continue to treat you like a battered wife. They will slowly strip away your assets and then when you have no more power they will show you their true nature at the end of a truncheon or microwave tank. They think with technology and security forces they no longer need you as a buffer. That by the way was all you ever were to them, a buffer from the angry mob. They have a technological buffer now (or so they think) so you are obselete in your one function.

I saw you calling for Martial Law on your website, so clearly you embrace true fascism not the rule of mob anarchy you feared but real DYED IN THE WOOL Fascism. Support that shit and enjoy the late night knock on your door. Oh and quit pimping your pathetic website.

Wall Street can fuck off.

They got us in to this mess.

More QE may bring them bigger and better bonuses.

But can we quit pretending it is going to help the employment rate.

Obama staffed his economics team with all the Wall Street "friendly" people. How did that turn out?

If Bubbles&BananasBernank launches anything other than Fed balance sheet bond maturity date reshuffling, and he weakens the USD, he dooms the Federal Reserve (at least in current composition) and Obama's reelection odds (some would say Obama should be PRAYING for USD strengthening now).

Even people not formerly paying attention know who The Bernank is, if even in a roundabout way. Millions in Texas would lasso The Bernank and BBQ his ass if they got the chance.

Shit's getting real, as a wise man once said.

Praying wont do anything to strengthen the dollar. And no way is it politically viable to further trash the dollar over the next year. QE hugely unpopular with the people as well, everyone sees it as simply payoff to the ultra rich.

Yes, they can, but Wall Street didn't get us into this mess.

GOVERNMENT got us into this mess. 

Wall Street just fed on all the carcasses created by government.  Now, they are calling fo rmore carcasses to feed on ala Bernanke's hokus pokus.

Little surprise to the payroll report on Wall Street, which is now united in its call that the only option is for the Fed to do more QEn+1

Boy, that didn't take long. In fact it's right on schedule.

I can't wait until I have a port inserted into my chest. Mainlining crack fiat bitches.

The problem now is politics takes center stage, theyre all drooling over being the first to be seen as being 'tough on rich Wall St banksters'.

QE is wildly unpopular to everyone except the ass hat beggars up above in the article.

I was laid off from a cabinetshop because QE3 hiked material costs and rent for my boss.

There were four of us before QE3; now its just my boss and his illegal immigrant brother in-law. Trying to cover 3500 sq ft of overhead.

Abby Joseph Cohen just said there's lots of cash in the end zone.

Wasn't Jimmy Hoffa supposed to have been 'securely' placed in the end zone ? Of the Giants' Stadium ?

She' s been wrong (at least publicly) for so long, she's an ideal contrarian indicator. She was bullish as hell @ the peak in 2k. Anymore bullish and she would have had to wear GS a cheerleader outfit and pompoms. How did that work out? She all but disappeared for a looooooong time after that fabulous call.

Absolutely Alx.


Mr. President, you ran on a platform of creating jobs, and have spent trillions in that pursuit, however we have lost jobs during your presidency.  Is it your plan to spend trillions more pursuing the same policy?  What are you going to do differently this time and where is the money going to come from for you to even try?

Edit:  The truth is it was never about creating jobs, it was about preserving the banking system and creating votes.

Throwing $ @ a problem, w/o targeting it was not the answer. None of the programs had a back-stop, so the aid stayed here. Yes jobs were surely created. Just not here. Asia is not exactly suffering, Canada doing OK, Germany .... fine thank you, Brazil ... okee dokee. The US .... unless you worked @ the US Mint, running the printing presses ... punt.

Once the rates got to 4-5%, the politicians should have taken a good hard look at all those moronic deals signed & approved, whereby our markets can be, and are, wide open &  flooded with products made through subsidizing and sold in manipulated currencies, yet, our products exported to them are taxed and exposed to volumes of regulations and red-tape. we are pissing into the wind. While American intellectual properties are being bought on the open market for nickels & dimes in the form of dying corporations, Americans either are not allowed to touch shares of certain foreign countries, OR. must take on partners who own the majority. My bro-in-law tried to export a product into India .... yeah .... the tax was more than the item sold for. Good-fucking-luck, yet, they operate with impunity here and behave as if doing so is a God given right - many openly (now) even laughing at us.

Fat chance with oil @ 87.00 and silver @ 43.00

  They better surround Gadaffi again every morning next week pre-market. Maybe S&P 900 will get some breathing room for QE.

Oil too high, gold way too high, stocks ridiculously high, dollar far too low...100 other reasons why a diamond encrusted QE is not doable.

All true.

Obama really needs to press the jobs more, nothing else matters. No jobs and higher Dow and $5 gas won't get you reelected. Looks like qe3 is becoming less likely or a tease.
