Quantitive Easing

Now that the "recovery" has stalled what is the likelihood that the US Fed will print more money?

If it is highly likely that they will, will it cause share markets to surge and how long will it take before they fall again?

Re: Quantitive Easing

They HAVE to use QE to cover the difference between what "we" borrow and what we take in. We take in, in taxes/revenues about 2 trillion, we borrow about another 2 trillion and the debt service is at least 1/2 a trillion. We owe out 1.6+++trillion above what we take in.

If they don't use QE for this interest rates would be MASSIVE.

What it sounds like you are asking is when will they do another stimulus. Who knows? Probably after the election so they don't have to own it during the election.

I'm not touching the market question.
