  • FOMC Minutes: Everyone is clearly not on board. Fed officials are "evenly divided" between ending QE around mid-year or continuing until year's end. Several FOMC members thought it appropriate to slow or stop QE well before the end of 2013.  [View news story]
    Where exactly does it say the members are divided ?

    would excess reserves not help deleverage the banks balance sheets even further and thus result in investors putting more money into bank stocks ? Once that occurs the banks will take on more risk and increase lending. Would that not be a success story?

    One can argue that natural gas supplies have been increasing while oil supplies are always decreasing. However low interest rates and QE do facilitate rampant speculation as evident by record soaring margins. All these charts prove is that speculators prefer oil as a sure thing because of dwindling supplies and high geopolitical risks.

    I have never seen a naturally occurring oil slick 150 miles wide, or an naturally occurring oil coated seagull. Can't help but notice all the dead fish washing up on shore after being exposed to some dinosaur fat. I cant help but think this is going to be devastating to future availability of fresh water, clean fish,. and what ever other toxic effects we will find from all the chemicals we just spilled into the ocean.
