Fed beening hinting that we'll taper next year, David Tepper said this to cnbc on 10-15; "They're not tapering for a long time now," Tepper said today (Oct 15) in an interview on CNBC. "They have no choice. The government is still shut, things are going to obviously slow down and now it looks like they may have a relatively short-term deal, which is not going to create the confidence you would quite like." Pause here and let's try to go over this again. They're not tapering for a long time now also, they don't have an choice. Yes They do have a choice to say "OPPS!" Fed said "Let's buy bonds" I don't trade bonds but ETFS. No one should be Buyer of a bond by the FED.
