Bernanke: We will not hesitate to use additional QE if deemed necessary. The markets like that, the DJIA immediately popping 45 points. Gold recovers its losses, back to nearly unchanged.

    I am not sure how markets are ever expected to stand on their own again, if even when easing is not needed, Bernanke has to literarlly say that easing stands at the ready?

    I think we could all do without the FOMC's "collective judgment"

    Before it was somebody at the FED played bad cop and another good cop. Now it has become Bernanke playing both good and bad cop at the same time! This is what I call an exciting role - what a theater. In any event, I think some sort of QE or whatever they call it in June or July. This is my best guess and it is likely to involve mortgages.

    He'd continue the role of getting a long line of complete morons into the position.

    So if we do need help, they will help.
    If we do not need any help, they wont.
    Thank God they are not giving us some forward guidance for the years ahead so businesses can plan for a change and how to adjust business accordingly.
