  • Bernhamlet Commentary 0 comments

    Famous quote we are hearing today in the financial markets..."to taper or not...that is the question?"

    Bernhamlet (as we all know him Bernanke) has managed to provide the most elusive hype of the current century. Over the past 3 mths ...Bernhamlet has continued to keep the media, traders and analysts guessing as to the Fed's true plan. Either to end bond purchases, slice alittle or continue to "print to infinity". Yesterday's commentary, was not a shock for myself or others in the market..yet the media had seemed surprised. No TAPER...what??? After years of assessing technical and more so "macroeconomic" data...the Fed will continue provide these "menagerie tricks" as the U.S. economy cannot survive without continue more stimulus.

    I read an article yesterday from the Telegraph in the U.K...and the editor had mentioned a valid point. Stimulus can be a positive factor for any economy...the key is to direct it where it is needed most. In the U.S. we have seen...the path of stimulus into the "big banks" pockets or right into Wall St.

    Can the Fed continue this hype as "chatter" continues today...will "Octaper" be ready for next month? If Yellen is nominated or whomever the next candidate to replace Bernanke...will they correct the U.S. monetary policy and provide hope...or continue the "petal to the metal". Overall, next month's "Octaper"..if that transpires and U.S. debt limit will be heated discussion. Grab your popcorn as the end of 2013 will be the "highlight" in coming years.
