Fed to Discuss Keeping ZIRP Until Late 2015

"Given this baseline, one can then employ the dynamics of one of the Federal Reserve's economic models, the FRB/US model, to solve for the optimal funds rate path subject to a particular loss function.11 Such a policy involves keeping the funds rate close to zero until late 2015."


This is just peachy. Fed is one of the (if not THE) major culprit of the current speculative markets around the world as well as inflation on the essentials (i.e. gas, food, etc) and now they want to keep the damn rate near 0% until '15?

Why not just follow Japan and keep it low FOREVER :fume: :bluemad:

If it bothers you so much, why not hedge yourself against the inflation and the stupidity of the world's central bankers?
Possible hedges for inflation:
1. Oil stocks / ETFs
2. Physical precious metals (Gold, silver)
3. Precious metals ETFs
4. Agricultural ETFs (link: http://seekingalpha.com/article/466271- ... takes-root)

You're funny, Silly. Perhaps you didn't read my OP carefully.

...current speculative markets...

Do you honestly think those 4 examples are not speculative?

Yeah, and you thought Apple was a Buy too when it bought NeXT, right?

Hedge all you want, buddy. I remember several folks who were hedging against inflation by buying homes back in '06 :loco: :loco: :loco:

Speaking of hedging, I remembered more folks who were shit scared of $150 oil price back in summer 2008 (including our famous CPC) that they actually hedge against the rise in oil prices buy buying (GASP!!) oil futures during that time......during that time :loco: :loco: :loco: :loco:

Yeah buddy...keep hedging.

Inflation rates don't include oil prices (gas) or food at least in the US it isn't counted. So the Fed doesn't consider the average mans needs like getting to work or feeding their family as part of inflation. It can only consider the aspects that effect the highest level of investors thereby insuring that everyone wins. Even if that means everyone including your baby needs to work to provide interest to their investments: YOUR LABOR.
