Can't help but feel that the quiver going through the markets is the FED beginning to feel that without help from the politicians there's a limit what the QE's can accomplish. Add in healthcare,and next year's elections should be a real battle. I'm sure that the White House fully expected the Bernanke Team to keep printing boatloads of money until the 2014 elections were over. Good opportunity think I to pick up MWE and selected MLPs at attractive prices. As energy inflation cuts in, MLP assets should do nicely IMO.
The rise in interest rates has began and the earthquake scale is 6.9 Mlp's are caught in a vise. Oil prices are declining-home sales slowed and therefore economy has no stimulus-federal interest rates are rising and the Cramer effect of buying mlp's for yield has ended. This was expected to be a slower process lasting a few months not 2 days. NOBODY knows what each mlp is worth in a sliding lower market. Those who follow my thinking are also caught as to what each mlp is worth. It will be time enter or punt. I am dollar cost averaging down. my 2 cents
