Calling QE a "large and dull hammer" distorting markets, BlackRock fixed income chief Rick Rieder - formerly bullish on long-dated Treasurys - is shortening the duration in his portfolio and calling on the Fed to wind it down. The economy is on "reasonably strong footing," says Rieder and unemployment faces "structural headwinds" only overcome with time - a view not at all shared by Bernanke.

  • Fight Bernanke and his leemings is like beating your head with a "large and dull hammer" but Rieder is correct. There will be HELL to pay sometime in the not too distant future

  • I agree that dull hammers make lousy ..um cattle prods? But until someone comes up with a clever way for us to talk past the very real and very intractable 'structural headwinds', Bernanke isn't going to put down his hammer.
