EXPANSION OF FED'S BAL. SHEET IS BEING RIGHTSIZED, NOT TAPERED..T OR F?
Expansion of fed's bal. Sheet is being rightsized, not tapered..t or f? who ever named this fed right sizing of their balance sheet a tapering is a quack. it's simply right sizing the bal sheet and has nothing to do with pulling out from quantitative easing. it's fascinating to watch all those mom's and pop's out there selling their bonds off of the fed headlines in newspapers. pretty much, the fed is scaring everyone out of their bonds so the fed can simply benefit from this too. from a taxation basis on taxable investments vs bond investments, and from a standpoint that they can reduce the amount of interest they have to pay on bond investments to their holders.
