    To taper or not Taper, that's the question. Yeah, instead of 85bn it will go to 75bn. 75 bn is not QE?
    Few months ago the highlight was China's hard landing...now it looks like China is in a flight cruse. And remember that 7+% growth in a much larger Chinese economy, means much more consumption than 10+% growth rate 7 years ago.
    All analysts mentioned that Iron Ore would crash this year, it is still at the 130-140 ball park.
    Buy the low cost commodities producers, they will Always survive and pay you dividends and wait until the next wave, it will come and you can surf it.
    Or go to Facebook and Twitter, that's another option, but remember AOL, Groupon, Orkut and so on.

    The Fed will not taper. http://bit.ly/1hQLYcT

     

    But they could always do a $10 billion temporary move to quell the masses. But not with the 10 year north of 2.75.

    Fed will taper by mid 2014. Only the delusional believe in QE infinity.

    I thought they were suppose to taper in June? Now Dec...Then mid 2014 ? Keep guessing as that is the plan..

     

    Some just don't see that?

     

    It will end but when? I really don't think this can go on forever, can it?

    AIP, only your continued silly comments are delusional. Kind of tired of them as you bring no substance to the debate, only name calling.

    Fed cannot taper simply because if it does, the whole house of cards will fall apart. Rising interest rates will push to default in no time. This is no exit end game - better have a glass of good wine and enjoy the show, it is free...

    Remember now, gold is quite an emotional investment for those who are weak hands or worried about the 'today show'. Strong hands know when to buy and sell, and perhaps they only buy when able also. I don't know, but oil is not the big issue, again fear is the issue. Seems when all is calm in Willoughby, gold drops. I find gold prices very inviting. I am not buying now due to the fact my cash flow is low now but after a coupla of coin show I bet my stash grows more. I am not selling gold or silver. I am fine tuning my collection which is not a 'collection' it is a portfolio of numismatics.

    It's a shame when gold rises even slightly you fools are hibernating and don't have an f'in word to say but the moment there's the slightest change in course suddenly your fat mouths are yapping.

    LOL what silliness. Any tapering will send long term treasury rates through the roof due to lack of demand. That in turn will make bonds less attractive and ultimately weaken the dollar. there is almost no way to unwind this QE without major pain. AND keeping it? That means goodbye to any strong recovery until it is reversed. Just look at Japan.

    Do we not remember what happened a few months ago when Bernanke suggested a cutback and the DOW took a nose dive?

     

    The major mover of the market, in my opinion, is cheap money. Take it away, and the "recovery" hits a major stumbling block.
