Somebody Email the Fed! The Rate Storm Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost

Bloomberg has on their front page: Bernanke Briefings May Offset Fed Hawks With Words as New Tool

When Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke convenes his first press conference next week, he may emphasize a point the markets seem to have forgotten: He’s serious about keeping interest rates low for an "extended period."

Shortly thereafter, CNBC runs at the top of their page: S&P Affirms US AAA Ratings While Revising Outlook to Negative (story developing), Futures Sink; S&P: U.S. Outlook to Negative

Broad market futures are currently down 15 points or so. You have heard me warn about the upcoming interest rate storm, potentially ad nauseum. Well, the chickens are coming home to roost.

    I doubt very seriously if the Fed is truly going to stop QE anytime soon. they have already announced that they are extending treasury purchases yet again. If you read this site, you all know why.

    So 3 days after S&P goes negative the DJIA is at a new 52 week high. Reggie, I'd be very interested to read your opinion regarding the Feds QE. You may have written about this topic previously and I missed it. Basically everyone knows that QE2 is ending but now are wondering about QE3...and id does seem that we have a close negative correlation with the DJIA and other stock prices and the $. So, what do you think will happen?

    This is Reggie. You are going to have to stop spamming the site. If you add value in terms of commentary, I have no problem with your throwing a link or two, but you are not.
