  • FOMC Minutes: Several on the committee saw tapering as likely and warranted soon, but many want to see further improvement in the labor market first. Several want to see faster economic growth in addition to improvement in employment. [View news story]

  • Bernanke press conference: Should projections hold, Bernanke sees QE ending "around mid-year" 2014 and the unemployment rate being about 7% at that time. Responding to a question, he says the FOMC stands ready to quickly adjust - i.e. fire purchases back up - should it prove to have made a mistaken forecast. Stocks (SPY -0.5%) and Treasurys (TLT -1.2%) are at session lows. [View news story]

  • This is the first time after any of the QE, Twist, and LTRO announcements that the stock market is lower 13 trading sessions later, writes David Rosenberg. The Fed may have established a floor for prices, but the global economy has created a ceiling. Another obstacle is bullish sentiment, just the opposite of this time last year when investors were hunkered down for more pain. [View news story]
    great observation but there is huge collusion amongst the FED and a number of hedge funds. No way in hell SHW should trade where it is or LULU,UA,TSCO and many other retailers. Greater fool theory at work.

  • The U.S. saw the birth rate fall to its lowest level since the depths of World War II, cutting into consumption numbers and spending totals. The population only increased by 0.92% over the most recent tracking period from the Census Bureau and the number of births actually declined last year. Though a growing percentage of career-focused working women factors in, a sluggish U.S. economy has been the biggest influence on the nation's birth rate.

    It doesn't help matters that the FED is there to backstop every drop of over 10 points in the market. When markets are artificially inflated and never allowed to have any volatility without Yellen or some other FEDhead on TV it doesn't help matters either
