Financial Markets Analysis - Fed Adopts Quantitative Inflation

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009 Mar 21, 2009 - 04:04 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big story of the week was the U.S. Fed's head long fling over the cliff into Quantitative Easing by printing more than $1 trillion (electronically) , this is on top of the $800 billion already printed on the sly as the Fed buys toxic junk such as the weeks announcement of buying $1.25 trillion of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage backed securities, as well as other junk bonds, on top of $300 billion of US Government bonds to help finance the ever growing budget deficit. The implications of this extra supply of dollars is inflationary that devalues the value of all dollars. I have already warned indepth of the consequences of Quantitative Inflation so won't repeat it here.


Meanwhile the stealth bull markets spike higher left many analysts scrambling to cover their backs early week with analysis that typically suggested both that the Low 'could be in' and then again it 'could not be in'. Though the sell off late week again started to see a reversion towards the bearish mean.

Robert Pretcher made an in depth video and chart presentation freely available that illustrated his own views on the financial crisis and the prospects for the stocks and the housing markets in terms of a imminent bottom or not.

In the UK the mainstream press still continued to run with a ridiculous house price forecast for ANOTHER 55% drop on top of the 21% to date, my earlier analysis explained why this is extremely improbable. Though there was some further long-term bad news for the housing market as the FSA sought to regulate UK house prices.

Tomorrows analysis / newsletter will seek to update indepth either the trend for Gold or the US Dollar following the Feds decision to print (electronic) money that saw Gold and Commodities leap whilst the Dollar slumped which saw the hibernating dollar collapse proponents re-emerge in force to spell out the dollars imminent collapse, though the actual dollar trend so far is inline with my forecast / road map as of 20th Jan 2009 -

US Dollar Bull Market 2009 Update 4 - US Dollar to trade sideways with an upward bias for at least the first half of 2009, as the graph illustrates.

Gold Price Forecast 2009 - The picture being painted by the above analysis is that of gold strength going into March that looks set to see gold break above resistance of $936, to target $960, however this strength will soon evaporate with gold again targeting a decline back below the breakout point to trade back below $850 by mid 2009.

1. Stealth Bull Market Follows Stocks Bear Market Bottom at Dow 6,470

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As stated in last weekends analysis and newsletter , following the Dow's Friday close at 6626 that the Dow Jones Index had now fulfilled its bear market target of 6,600 as per the analysis of 20th Jan 2009 and illustrated by the chart below. The primary focus hence forth was to "position for a bullish spike higher" that would CONFIRM the bear market low, and negate the secondary far less probable overshoot target of 5,700 to 6000.

3. United States Economic Collapse Facing Its Weimar Moment

By: Robert Freeman

In early 1919, Germany put in place a new government to begin rebuilding the country after its crushing defeat in World War I. But the right-wing forces that had led the country into the War and lost the War conspired even before it was over to destroy the new government, the "Weimar Republic." They succeeded.

6. Gold Buying Opportunity Of A Lifetime

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Opportunity and crisis are uneasy handmaidens in times of danger; and, while crises may increase, opportunities are always rare.

The world is in the grip of an unprecedented crisis. Unlimited credit has now turned into its deadly nemesis, unlimited defaulting debt; and whereas only some of us were its beneficiaries, all of us will be its victims—all of us, except the very few.

9. Gold and U.S. Dollar Trends Set to Diverge

By: Merv_Burak

Both the US $ and the price of gold have been in a rally mode for the past few months. Both are now taking a rest. However, the big difference is that the momentum for gold is still quite positive while that for the US $ is most definitely weakening. Something's gotta give and my money is on the US $ continuing to slide from here and gold to turn around back to the up side.
