they coming with this Frieght train.
They can't raise rates with margin debt at all time highs. It would trigger instant margin calls.
Remind me again... why do they have to raise rates?
Because that cant go much lower.
Fed can hike rates before stoping QE. Market does not account for that possibility. Nothing says they cannot raise rates before talks of tapering.
Yeah but it will do nothing to increase consumer spending. Welcome to blowback from the zirp conditioning. They made their own bed-now they must lay in it.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
NOTHING the Fed can do will increase consumer spending except for direct financing of home mortgages at 1.5% like Japan. Banks WILL NOT do it.
