I gotta hand it to Uncle Ben and his Fedster gang! As the financial media has been harping about the Bond Bubble bursting and the GREAT ROTATION out of bonds and into stocks; they are quietely doing EVRYTHING they can to continue to prop bonds up and hold interest rates down so they can finance the rising federal deficts off the backs of senior citizens and others that need fixed income. And it is working! Stocks and metals are dropping!
It is kinda interesting to see the market's reaction to what was said. If they are true to their words and rethink wording/action one would think it bullish for both gold and palladium. No one believes them though!
