QE 4: Folks, This Ain’t Normal – What You Need To Know About The Fed’s Latest Move

The markets are now well and truly broken.  Not because they don’t conform to my predictions, but because they are no longer sending useful price signals.  Instead, my hypothesis here is that the markets are now just a giant and rigged casino, where a relative handful of big firms and other tightly coupled players are gaming their orders to take advantage of this flood of money.

When your central bank badly misprices money and then bids up everything related to bonds, nothing can be reasonably priced.  Risk is mispriced; the few remaining investors (as distinct from speculators, which are now the majority) are forced to accept both poor yields and higher risk – so we know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.

What Conservatives don’t get is that Obama and the Dems have never had any intention of stopping spending, much less cutting it. They actually believe they can invent money out of thin air without consequence.

Stock up on gold, canned goods and ammo….
