  • Anyone,

    Can anyone explain how interest rates at 0%, the FED buying $1Trillion/year can justify a healthy economy worthy of the growth of the market? I still don't get how the FED needs to keep helping a market that is rising the way it is.....I am serious because it just seems that no matter what the news the market goes up.

    Good news, goes crazy, bad news goes down for a day or two then bang, up again. I am just in cash in my 401k, not shorting ,but just don't trust the market because of 2007-2009. What changed to say "Do over"?

    thanks in advance

    I ain't buying, or selling but I will say that I am amazed that the volume is less than 1/2 of what it was a year ago. There are no buyers and even less sellers......The market doesn't make sense anymore....I'm sure that's what the FED wanted...

    I really have no opinion any more as I think it will go up, only because there is no one selling... Kind of different when the market went down there had to be something to blame, so why when it just goes up there isn't something to blame? What happens when interest rates go up and unemployment drops below 6.5% as Bernanke said was the key? Oh yeah that is already been fixed, right?

    Just getting started? Unemployment lowest since 2006, but interest rates are at basically ZERO %. How is this good? So the FED lied and stated that 6.5% was the target, but they know they can't lower interest rates or the train jumps the tracks? If this is SO GOOD, then why so tentative on raising rates? I am amazed that no one calls the FED on this.....
