    Bernanke and the Fed

    This thing was running till there was wind of a fed meeting. Good news is the result isn't any worse. I feel like this is priced in, AGNC might have seen $40 had the fed not started buying MBS. In any case, Bernanke isn't on my favorite list. One little thought: You wanna spur housing? Come out and tell the world the rate isn't going any lower. Say it flat out with some conviction and stand behind it. Your the Fed chair. Then the whole world looks and says hmm, it isn't gonna get any better than this...

    That's when people who are on the sidelines start buying. That's how you spur housing. Just a thought.
