5 Things To Ponder: To QE Or Not To QE

streettalklive.com / Lance Roberts / 23 October 2014

Over the last few weeks, the markets have seen wild vacillations as stocks plunged and then surged on a massive short-squeeze in the most beaten up sectors of energy and small-mid capitalization companies. While “Ebola” fears filled mainstream headlines the other driver behind the sell-off, and then [...]

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts – V Bottom From Fed/ECB Jawboning Back To 50 DMA

jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com / 24 OCTOBER 2014

The Fed and the ECB were able to reverse last week’s market plunge to key support through the generous application of jawboning about stimulus.

Markets and reality disconnected

goldmoney.com / By Alasdair Macleod / 24 October 2014

The behaviour of financial markets these days is frankly divorced from reality, with value-investing banished.

By Richard Leong Reuters Thursday, October 23, 2014

Foreign central banks slashed their holdings of U.S. Treasuries at the Federal Reserve to their lowest level since May, Fed data released on Thursday showed.

Forget “Lower For Longer”, The Fed’s New Message Is “Sooner But Slower”

zerohedge.com / Guy Haselmann / 10/24/2014 08:19 -0400

If I had to simplistically decipher the Fed’s (often mutating) communication, I suspect that the FOMC is trying to convince markets that it is looking at a multitude of factors and will act accordingly when they deem it necessary. I suspect its efforts to discuss various [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/23/2014 19:21

Albert Edwards is angry, and understandably so: almost exactly two weeks after warning readers to “sell everything and run for your lives” and the market was on the verge of its first correction in years, several powerful verbal interventions by central banks from the Fed, to [...]

Are sovereign bonds the last rampart before the collapse?

goldbroker.com / Philippe Herlin / Oct 23, 2014

Last week was a rocky one on the stock markets, with London, Frankfurt, Paris and New York sliding heavily. Sort of a mini-crash, but not too serious… a simple warning showing some nervousness among investors: has the time of disillusion come? In Europe and Japan, stock market [...]

“Warning Signs” & The Fed’s Grand Illusion

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/23/2014 11:02

Via Scotiabank’s Guy Haselmann,

Ever since Bullard’s agoraphobic performance last week on Bloomberg TV, it should be crystal clear to the FOMC and investors just how powerfully markets will react to any shifts in Fed policy or attempts at policy normalization. An equity market freefall abruptly took [...]

Initial Jobless Claims Rise Most In 3 Months, 4-Week Average Lowest Since 2000

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/23/2014 08:39 -0400

Having reached multi-year lows last week, this week’s 17k rise to 283k (albeit noise), missing expectations for the first time in 6 weeks, is the biggest weekly rise in initial jobless claims since early August. Of course that’s irrelevant as all the time there is no [...]

Low Inflation? The Price Of Ground Beef Has Risen 17 Percent Over The Past Year

theeconomiccollapseblog.com / By Michael Snyder / October 22nd, 2014

Thanks to the Federal Reserve, the middle class is slowly being suffocated by rising food prices. Every single dollar in your wallet is constantly becoming less valuable because of the inflation the Fed systematically creates. And if you try to build wealth by saving money [...]

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / By Howard R. Gold at MarketWatch / October 22, 2014

Things were looking grim last week, especially on Wednesday, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at one point down by 460.

The inevitability of QE

news.goldseek.com / By Clif Droke, Gold Strategies Review / 22 October 2014

A swan dive in commodity prices followed by the latest stock market correction has investors talking about the “D word” once again. References to deflation abound in the news while economists seriously discuss the possibility of a global economic recession. What, they [...]

“In the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, traitors, heady, high-minded having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/22/2014 13:27

Harley Bassman: “The Fed Is Trying To Land A Jumbo Jet On A Football Field”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/22/2014 13:02

Once upon a time, one of the best sell-side analysts in the MBS space was Merrill Lynch’s “Convexity Maven” Harley Bassman: he was so good, in fact, he was quickly soaked up to the buyside, or at least the prop-trading side, when several years ago he [...]

Schizophrenic Silver Slammed On Surging Volume

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/22/2014 09:58

What a difference 24 hours makes. Yesterday, ECB rumors sparked precious metal buying on heavy volume. Today, more denials of ECB corporate bond buying combined with a slightly-hotter-than-expected inflation print (i.e. lower odds of Fed unleashing QE4) has sent silver (and gold) tumbling… on very heavy volume…
