That my Friend is the couple "trillions" dollar question, it seems that those printing presses will be working overnight for many nights.

Nothing more than paper been moved from the treasury to the Federal Reserve nothing more nohting less.

But they said Inflation will be kept at minimum

I don't think that China after this one will not be buying US debt in a long time, specially with the dollar plummeting right now.

But hey we are Green, green green.

Perhaps that was the whole conspiracy, to prop the emerging markets that has been losing since the US created economic crisis.

But hey, we are supposed to have the best of the best taking care of our nations economy right?

Good observation. Time to move on and rape and pillage the emerging markets and bring them into the fold.

Fits right into the whole Global World Order. Can't be global unless everyone is involved.

Stander, take your riddles someplace else. What do you mean by "heavy news."

Well, heavy news could announce the discovery of a magic wand, for example. Like this one:

Stocks Rally on Fed Plan to Buy U.S. Debt

The Federal Reserve fueled the rally on Wall Street Wednesday after the central bank announced a plan to buy U.S. debt.

Stander, are you talking to yourself again?

No, mom. I'm playing my violin.

I just knew it this morning when Gold dropped like $30 in a hour!!!

Crushed the price to push out on the cheap and up it goes!!!

KD has called the end!!!

Dollar is falling faster than a guy in a barrel from Niagria Falls...

Treasurys dropping like the WTC also...

Enjoy it while it lasts...

KD's exact words were: "**** us."


Sometimes, I wish that man would sugarcoat things.

Well, this sounds like a mighty fine time to suspend my job-seeking efforts, and go spend my last $1.50 on some high-alcohol malt liquor.

If Ben isn't bluffing, then in a few days I'll sell some blood and start stocking up on beans, rice, and ramen.

Looks like we aren't going to see a massive bond dislocation at one time it looks like it is going to be a steady process. As more people catch on to what is going on it will accelerate.

Not good. Gold is highly unstable. I guess so many people have bought gold that the people that could fluctuate the price aren't able to do it as easy because so many people are invested in it.

The endgame is starting to sound like a stalemate.

Cramer is currently extolling Big Ben's virtues as "brilliant"...he thinks his move will provoke a "housing bottom" by June and pump up the economy in a huge way.

I did miss it...y'all were busy and brilliant,God it's all getting SO exhausting!

I bought some gold a while back...hope I don't end up regreting it.
Ping-pong metal today.

Was at the gym most of the day:investing in my brain and body these days because they are something I CAN control,HAHAHA!

Still debating whether or not to dump T-bills...

Will things continue to jump up tomorrow and of course Fri after the Big O's stint on Leno?

Waiting to see what Kudlow and crew will have to say in a bit.

Forgot to add: I guess the AIG mess has been put to bed? It's been overshadowed by the latest news?

I prefer charts and graphs to people these days. Oh,and ATS.

Can't see T Bills doing much more after today. Lots of places to get a better return without much more risk. Owning any bank bonds is almost the same as owning trasuries at this juncture. They have made it clear they won't fail. The only thing is they don't expect to raise rates until the end of 2010.

I am liking my adjustable rate mortgage based on the MTA. Should mean rates below3% for a year or two.

It is not $300 Bn but 1.2 Tn...

U.S. stocks and Treasuries surged and the dollar tumbled after the Federal Reserve unexpectedly announced plans to buy $1 trillion of bonds in an effort to lower consumer borrowing costs and end the recession.
