The odds of additional Fed stimulus have risen to 99%, according to indicators tracked by Citigroup. Fingers in the wind, bond strategists have reduced their end-of-year 10-year Treasury yield forecast to 1.65% from 1.9% a month ago, perhaps forgetting past bouts of QE have sent yields higher, not lower.

    To think that there will be stimulus with the market this high is absurd.
    Lip service has worked for so many previous occasions why not again?

    Why do we need a stimulus? Because the Dow isn't at 20,000?

    Well the theory goes that taking the Dow from 12,000 up to 20,000 will in and of itself create economic growth.

    Well, that's the theory. The reality is that taking $10 from one person to give to another so they can bid up the price of a stock, in the hopes that the company that represents that stock can sell its $10 item to the person from whom the $10 was just taken away is not a very well thought out theory.
