1. Interest rates are beginning to rise. Need new funds to continue rate suppression (keep rates near 0)
2. The dollar index is near 80. It is the dollars "turn" to be devalued:
3. Gold was suspiciously knocked down last week to 1650:
4. Its an election year, and Obama will likely win the election based on 2 items:
-- Conflict with Iran this summer
-- New nominal highs in the stock market
My timeframe for the QE Announcement is this spring or summer. That is the timeframe that would work out best for the Status Quo.
Also, who is going to buy all this paper? China has been selling some lately, Russia is selling their last amounts, Europe is broke, ect.
So we have sellers and we also have billions of new bonds coming into market every week.
We also have tax revenues down slightly from last year, so this "the economy is improving and no need for QE" is pure BS.
IF CNBS would just spent 2-3 minutes explaining the reality of the numbers, most would understand that QE 3 is not choice, it is a must.
This is looking like it might come true:
Cmon Bernake just push the button. You gonna let the stocks fall below 12,300 for the remainder of the summer?
