  • Bullard gets even more hawkish [View news story]
    What matters is that the FED is using 'their' debt to buy U.S. debt...that circle jerk can only go on for so long just like the European banks buying all the sovereign debt from their countries...which those countries immediately guarantee. There is more to it then that but FED debt absolutely matters - especially since they will have massive losses (against thin capitalization) on their own bond portfolio as interest rates rise.

  • Bullard gets even more hawkish [View news story]
    The stock market rising due to low interest rates is incidental. The real gorilla is the U.S. can't afford to pay any higher interest on the debt or everything will immediately go south. The FED will probably be revealed to be the 'Belgium' buyer at some point in the future. No matter what stock market gains or debt illusions they manage to pull off in the short term, there is no way back from the debt overload the world faces w/o a complete reset.

    Of course, anyone who proposes a return to anything near normal gets the idiot treatment around here.

    C'mon Shark, Anyone who can pretend to be solvent when they are a quadrillion yen in the hole deserves at least a little credit.

  • ISM corrects May report to 56, ahead of expectations [View news story]
    It means that the huge fudge they added in April, to make up for weather and the crappy Q1 numbers, is smaller then the extra large feel-good numbers they are going to add for may. Both are on their way to massive, just pretend numbers they will add in June for the quarter close print. The FED didn't print 5 Trill to allow any stinkin reality to mess w/the indexes.

  • More on the Barclays gold-fixing fine [View news story]
    Easy there Joker. You just got us all put on the NSA watch list (and our relatives and 3rd cousins).

    What gets me is say they are afraid of prosecuting the banks or head bankers as it may affect their underlings. It seems they are letting the 90% go to avoid harming the 10%.

  • Barclays escapes with small fine for gold manipulation [View news story]
    And they were so concerned about a decade of fraud that they fined them a huge 26 opposed to several billion for their other, lessor crimes. They also had to agree not to name names and to resume manipulating as soon as this column is taken down.

  • Dudley: FOMC to give wide berth to stocks as it hikes [View news story]
    And if their banker bosses really throw a hissy fit and tank the market, the taper will be off altogether, and purchase will be back at $100 bill. Of course, that's coming anyway since they can only pretend that Belgium is buying more T-bills then their GDP for a few weeks....The game will be totally up if China decides to throw a few hundred billion on the pile to protest the hacking charges.

    Of course Lloyd forgets to mention he can continue breaking the commodity laws w/impunity because GS is too big to jail and the bastard father of central bankers everywhere. He won't give it up until the masses pry control from his slimy hands.

    Here in Ct.we get ads for them all the time. Get any gov't assistance through one of the 900 programs and you can get a free phone and 200 minutes a case you need to call 911 or accept that job offer. It's federally funded so I'm sure it's available in every blue state.

  • U-turn on GSE mortgage policy [View news story]
    Since the no verification products are working so well for school loans and autos, why not roll them out to housing? We can save on the Section 8 costs.
