What's she going to say tomorrow guys?
Should I hop out of my short positions until it's over?
>thinking she won't order the FED into a new round of QE because God forbid we have a bear market.
Most likely? Some new god-forsaken program to rob us and subsidize the banks an stock market. The public is beginning to figure out that they got the short end of the QE stick already, so they have to do something else.
Or they could go full madman and annouce QE infinity.
usa needs and will absolutely keep raising rates. otherwise all your pension funds are gone. they simple vanish with these rates. so yellen is pretty much the only one with a reasoning. europe is completely fucked with negative rates.
They will do absolutely nothing.
Or... They'll raise rates. After all, they're data dependent, and everythings awesome according to their data (muh 4.9% unemployment) so either way, its probably going to be great for your shorts
>QE is essentially welfare for niggers.
Yeh because noggers are the ones holding onto the equities that qere artificially inflated , not old money and banksters
Damn /biz/ youre on a roll today
Ugh... That's now how it works.
Corporations don't hold a lot of government debt, so how would a fractional increase in the cost of that debt influence anything?
Nigger, you best have some sound argument when you plant a one-liner shitpost like that with no further supporting details.
Not provable since their market is closed all week.
But when that shit opens it will look bad and be closed down everyday for going over their 10% drop in a day rate.
Can they default in the next two weeks?
Federal funds rate is currently 0.25-0.50%
What will she do? There is no chance of a raise in February or March. The stock market is shitting those gains too quickly. She does not have the fortitude raise rates quickly.
What should she do? Rip the bandaid off. Raise rates to 1%. Let many of the loser companies fail. No bailouts. 1-2 years of pain in the USA (i.e. world). Then, hopefully we handle this economy better the next time around.
Nigger it's not the rate on government bond, it's the rate at which banks can lend money from the central banks. Higher rates means less money available to fool around at the stock market for the banks. Less money in the market means lower price of the goods, in this case stocks, traded on this market.
Moneysupply to the stock markets has ballooned over the last years, whit this qe and zero percent rates. They are shitting themselves, because a gigantic bubble is going to pop, if the central banks withdraw moneysupply.
