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.
