They are stuck. They can't go forward and can't stand still.
They can't continue the QE or they crash the dollar. But they can't stop QE or the too big to fail banks go under.
I wouldn't want to be in Bernanke's shoes, right now.
No and no and no and no.
You don't get it. The math and manipulation is beyond you. That's why they're making plans to taper it off. The Bond market will no crash. Sure current investors will feel the pinch, but with raised rates, getting into the bond market will be good. Banks have been storing up cash and assets as well. The US is actually in good shape except for our debt, which is relative because just about everybody else is in debt too.
The outlook is good.
