The Fed is out of ideas, and Bernanke knows it. Whenever he needs to talk the market off a ledge, he leaks information to Hilsenrath who writes a story about it.
All the Fed is doing now is postponing the inevitable by continuing to throw good money at the problem. All the first two rounds of QE did was raise the stock market. When the caffeine wore off, the market went back down.
I have an idea. Instead of manipulating the markets, stand back and let nature take its course. My loss is your buying opportunity.
