Minneapolis Fed chief Kocherlakota repeats his call for the Fed to begin hiking rates as early as this year, saying the employment picture has improved and inflation is set to rise above the central bank's target. Kocherlakota's comments are in stark contrast to the dovish sentiments of Yellen and Dudley earlier. They have votes on the FOMC, he doesn't (this year).

    It is critical to distinguish between Fed Presidents and Governors. There is a world of difference. I don't listen to Presidents.

    Thank you Mr. Kocherlakota,
    thank you sir for having this nations best interests and more selfishly from a personal point of view, for supporting the U.S. dollar!
    The purchasing power of the average working man / woman is being destroyed by the failed policies of Bernanke and his minions(Yellen and Dudley, who by the way thinks you can eat IPADS), and the constant intrusion into the markets!


    The stock market is so fed obsessed that you can't get any small pullback (however healthy) without the specter of the god like hand of Bernanke and his standard of living killing QE!


    I want to know who the hell is buying?
    Its not the little guy / retail investor! Not this time folks!
    Burn me enough times and I don't want any part of your ponzi scheme called "Buy and Hold" mold pushed by the likes of Jeremy Segal!
    This is not going to end well folks, we are at the cliff and the waterfall is fast approaching.
    If you haven't buckled up your life preserver, time to get safe and in cash!
    There will be no coming back this time, 2009 lows will be retested and broken.
    Lord have mercy!
