With the Dow off 40, the QE4 calls begin. Morgan Stanley's Adam Parker expects the Fed could augment QE3 before year's end as $40B/month in MBS purchases just won't get it done. Parker has easily been the most bearish of the major sell-side strategists this year.

    QE4 will be open ended Treasury purchases at $40-50 bil per month with weighted average maturity of 3-5 years. However, there is no need to begin the program until Twist ends.

    We need a higher dose. The trips just aren't the same any more.

    One wonders if the "most bearish of major sell-side strategists" has succumbed to the needle.

    Perhaps muni purchases are next. (The Fed already has POMO for Treasurys.)

    chopchop, that's what Goldman Sachs asked for today. Goldie asked for QE4 for direct stock equity injection. They need another fix, it's a junkies market.
