The Fed "IS" The Problem! - By Bill Holter (23/10/14) PDF Print E-mail

As I wrote yesterday, markets have become schizophrenic and volatility has exploded.  It is obvious the uncertainty regarding "QE" (monetization) is at the heart of this renewed volatility. I do want to mention and remind you of past crashes and vicious bear markets, they ALL have seen big volatility (in both directions) prior to the collapse. 1929, 1987, 2000, 2008 they all experienced big swings in the market prior to the big declines, this is what I believe we are experiencing now.

Before getting to my topic "the Fed IS the problem", I want to remind you how we have gotten here. Back in 2008, we had both fiscal and monetary stimulus as the policy response to dysfunctional markets and a shrinking economy. You might remember Hank Paulson talking about his "bazooka" TARP plan while the Fed was lowering rates furiously and even lending $16 trillion secretly. They threw the proverbial kitchen sink at the problems. The problems did not go away nor were they fixed, they were only postponed. The postponement date now seems to be upon us as the end of another QE nears or another round must begin. Can the U.S. Treasury pump more fiscal stimulus without spooking the bond market and exposing insolvency?  Who will buy another "1 off" stimulus plan?  If the answer is "no one" then it will fall solely on the shoulders of the Fed.  Do you see where this goes?
