  • 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.  [View news story]
    I can't wait for the inflation this all causes.

  • Market recap: Stocks moved broadly higher, propelling the Dow and S&P 500 to new record levels and capping the year's strongest three-day rally. Investors took comfort in the knowledge the Fed is still very much in the mix, and surprisingly strong data from China and Europe provided an early base for optimistic sentiment. Gold was the one major weak area, knocked back by Goldman's cautious outlook[View news story]
    I got raked over the coals already :(

  • The EU is preparing to take the apparent non-template that is the Cyprus bailout and incorporate some elements of it into a new law that would force haircuts on large deposits in banks that fail, economic affairs chief Olli Rehn has said. Bundesbank Jens Weidmann says that the Cyprus crisis shows that banks can be wound up. Along with Rehn's comments, it also shows that depositors' money is no longer safe in Europe.  [View news story]

  • Market recap: In a global version of "don't fight the Fed," aggressive new stimulus measures from Japan's central bank helped pull stocks higher in choppy trading. But gains were held back by a surprisingly large jump in U.S. jobless claims ahead of tomorrow's nonfarm payrolls report. Treasury prices hit their highest levels this year; crude oil ended below $94 for a two-day 4% loss.  [View news story]
    Haha I'm sorry but you guys are idiots.

  • President Obama is due to meet with Congressional leaders today to discuss the $85B of automatic spending cuts that are due to take effect at 11.59 pm tonight - on the by now fairly strong assumption the sides don't find a way to delay the reductions once more. While the White House has been issuing dark warnings about the effects of the cuts, there's much confusion about which programs will be hit.  [View news story]
    Complete manipulation.

    Market will rally to new high regardless. Sequester or not. Our market has detached itself from reality. It's a scary thought but our leaders in the fed and in our gov't are dancing with the devil.

  • Market recap: The S&P 500 broke below 1,500 and the Dow declined more than 200 points, shortly after hitting a new multi-year high, as the prospect of a hung parliament in Italy renewed scary scenarios of widening sovereign debt yields and another flare-up of the eurozone debt drama. The uncertainty also sank Treasury yields to one-month lows, and pushed gold and industrial commodities sharply higher.  [View news story]

  • Europe closes a wild day higher across the board, but sharply down from earlier levels. Stocks popped at the open following Friday afternoon's rally stateside and then soared after early polls showed Italians voting in a Brussels-friendly way. Later results, however, showed just the opposite. In the European tradition of making them vote until they get it right, another election could be in the offing. Stoxx 50 +0.8%, led by Germany +1.4%. After being up about 4% earlier, Italy +0.5%. Also up sharply early, the euro -0.2% to $1.3164.   [View news story]

  • More on FOMC minutes: Those expressing concern about the costs/risks from further asset purchases are upgraded to "many" from "several." A "number" said a close look at the data might well lead the FOMC to "taper or end" QE before a substantial improvement in the labor market occurred. "Several" argue the risks of ending too soon are also significant. Status quo for now, but the monetary law of the land can clearly no longer be called QE∞.  [View news story]
    Yea that is actually well said. QE isn't ending anytime this year.
