    The major banks own them and they are not transferable. You can gain a claim on Fed shares indirectly via major bank common stock, preferred, and bonds.

    Fed Reserve trades on the pink sheets under the symbol PONZI.

     

    This is a case where profits are bad, very bad. It means the fed has printed more money. It means taxpayers have had to pay more in interest on debt. It means the Federal reserve is still screwing your grandmother out of her retirement funds.

    I thought the symbol was FEDUP but you're right, it is PONZI. Thanks.
