Pretty sure as QE3 is farther in the mirror the stock market will start to drop. Right now Japan is pushing it's own stimulus and that is causing the dollar value to rise against their currency.

A few weeks ago when the FED mentioned that they were thinking about dumping QE3 and maybe starting to think about raising the interest rates we had the biggest fall in the market in a year. And that was just talk.

I see the manipulators are pushing gold and silver down lower. Gold dropped over $50 and silver dropped $0.80 and was below $16 for a short while. This is all trying to present the dollar as being strong.

They lie.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion . . just not entitled to their own facts

So far, the FED has been mum on interest rates, staying with their position they have held for the last couple of years. The FED announced the end of QE3 yesterday . . the DOW jumped almost 200 points today . . Ignorance as to the role of the FED and lack of understanding the relationship of the FED to the economy feeds a lot of illogical conclusions. The market often plays the FED's position on rates and QE via the Futures Market, and the perception of what the market will be in the Future. Some here were predicting a disaster in the market if the FED tapered QE . . Since the start of the taper, the market is up 1,500 points

The historic relationship between Gold and the USD is that as demand for the Dollar goes up, the price of Gold goes down . . ( Same for Crude in some respects ) The USD is as strong as it has been in years. The big holders of gold could not give a flip about the perception of the strength of the dollar . . For the most part, Gold is a hedge

. . and none of that has the least relationship to the US Economy

Nobody Mourns Death of QE as Treasuries Prove Insatiable

Quote:
Even with the end of unprecedented bond purchases from the Federal Reserve, demand for U.S. Treasuries looks as strong as ever.

Investors submitted bids for $5.54 trillion of government debt at auctions this year, or 3 times the amount sold, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The bid-to-cover ratio is higher than the 2.87 last year, when the Fed purchased more Treasuries than at any time since the central bank began quantitative easing in 2008, and has been exceeded only twice on record.
Punish me . . punish me! !
