John Taylor basically concurs with Byron Wien's talk of a summer swoon; with the weak economy and stimulus coming off, Taylor sees the stock market sinking in June and a recession following by year's end.

    Utterly amazing how it's overlooked that the Government has been sucking all the capital out of the private sector, QE or no QE, because ZIRP has just recycled the cash back to Treasuries or seen it sit idle on bank balance sheets because the rates at which it can be lent, now, in the private sector are too low to justify the risks, especially for anything but short-term lending. Ending this program -- especially if the banks can no longer recycle money to the Treasury profitably-- will capital begin to flow back to the productive private sector, as rates begin to rise.


    Government activities, at the expense of private investment always saps growth and private-sector jobs. The second this over-stayed QE/ZIRP program ends, the sooner we'll see more normal behavior by banks and businesses.

    Just more grist of the mill


    The three most important things in investing


    1. check your biases and prejudices. don't mix investing and politics
    2. know yourself and your risk tolerance. make sure you can take the heat that always comes
    3. block out the noise. 95% of what looks like information is garbage. Ignore.


    this element falls into bucket #3 Ignore.
