New York Fed details QE3 bond purchase plan

By Steve Goldstein

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- The New York Fed said it will start buying agency mortgage-backed securities on Friday, at a rate that is expected to total $23 billion over the remainder of September. It will then purchase securities at a clip of $40 billion each month. The New York Fed said it will concentrate its purchases in newly-issued agency MBS in the to-be-announced market, although it may purchase other agency MBS if market conditions warrant.

Wait until the press conf in

Wait until the press conf in 1.5 hours. That sends it even higher. Markets are stupid like that.

The problem with this round of QE is there is no closing date, so every FOMC meeting gold and silver buyers will be waiting to see if they keep extending the purchases.

I'm thinking the next few minutes...

...are going to have the charts looking like someone on a defibrillator. 

He's dead... no, wait, he's alive! ...er, no, he's dead. Clear! bzzt. He's alive! No, wait...

Repeat as needed.

Re: Sit tight now

Turd-  what are the dynamics behind a delayed move up, if you have the time to explain? 

I ask because I am shocked this didn't even make yesterday's highs on the initial move... and it is now pulling back.  Are traders and managed money really that slow on the draw?  I would just expect that this would have been stronger, is all...

70 cent move

It's not every day you see a one-minute $0.70 move

@Pining, they have to analyze

@Pining, they have to analyze it. This is how it goes. Go back and look at the charts on the day QE1 and QE2 were announced. Same thing. Steady moves that continue over a period of days.

Also note that it gets a nice big second wind when Bernank actually speaks later this afternoon. That is the money shot in my book.
