More from the minutes on the March FOMC meeting: Several members say if labor market conditions improve as anticipated, it would probably be appropriate to slow purchases later in the year and to stop them by the end of the year. The consensus projection is that inflation will be subdued through 2015.

    Additional correction."We hope and pray that inflation will be subdued through 2015 - of course after that all bets are off"

    I don't understand. If they are signaling an end date very soon, as opposed to the prior belief that there was NO END until UE gets down to 5%--why is the market rallying?

    I think the market believes that support from the Fed is not anymore necessary to keep the economy going.

    What you witnessed today was classic top selling by the smart money. A collapse is imminient, and those that realize it are getting out at any cost. Bitcoin was no accident. The markets aren't far behind and the next few days, if we have that long, is all we have to get liquid. See you at the bottom folks.

    The acid test of increase in money supply is the higher inflation. The negative effect of increase in money supply is decrease in velocity. So there is no such negative impact seen so far.

    Since the FOMC meeting minutes were produced before last Friday's (4/5) job numbers, it would seem that the Fed will continue it's easing. There is no clear indication that the economy is strong. Until that is obvious, count on Ben B to push continued QEII

    Yes there is no positive impact also. The banks and corporations have huge amount and are not invested. So what advantage to more pumping of money in the economy. It can do good if this money is channeled to Government for use in productive works - meaning that would result in savings or may bring revenue and so do employment.
