A check back to QE2 found stocks rising on speculation of an announcement, and spiking on the day of the announcement - very similar to this time around. The next month, however, saw a sizable sell the news downturn before the effect of the Fed action kicked in, sending stocks on a big multi-month rally.

    Yah, and...

     

    Look,
    if you want to put your hopes on this sugar high while our Ambassadors are killed and we get the President more interested on his Letterman appearance,
    I guess a fool and his money are truly parted!

     

    All the metrics suggest risk / reward is to the downside.
    2007 was NOT that long ago!
    Sadly,
    we have learned nothing!

    relatively low volume = buyers (short covering?) not very convincing

    Don't fight the FED. They have the bigger printer. Metrics mean little in a manipulated market.

    All-in is the mantra for the survivor-investor. No idea where we are headed, but the man said his train is leaving the station.

     

    Have some in the market and don't overlook gold, its the concomitant to Fed action where the man does not mention sterilization.

    Better make your money playing the market because you sure are going to need it to pay for gas, food, and rent. Horde your gold and silver, as that might be worth 2x what it is today sooner than later.

    The dollar is headed for further weakness for sure. Ben said today inflation is under control and not a problem (what in hell is he drinking) but we all know we have very significant inflation. With the open-ended monetary policy announced today keep all gold and silver positions, and add to them as we move toward the catastrophic financial demise, as our currency is destroyed. John Maynard Obama appointed the Fed Chairman, and he is acting like a loyal servant.

    The market goes up and the market goes down then it goes up etc.
    We have had no real growth for well over a decade so is the cycle turning?

    Take a look at this for a possible explanation of why there has been no real growth for over a decade.
