Ben Bernanke: My Work is Done Here

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 19th, 2013 4:29 PM |

I just listened to the release of the FOMC’s statement and juxtaposed that with the Q/A with Big Ben.

I detected some not so subtle differences in these deliveries, and clearly the market did as well.

The markets were remarkably stable after the initial release as the Fed stated that its policy remains unchanged and there was no hint of tapering asset purchases as has been the concern since that term was used by the Fed a month ago.

The statement had a mildly positive spin on the economy but nothing overly exuberant as to serve as a warning sign that the Fed might begin to pull in on the reins so to speak.

Our Sense on Cents Economic All-Star John Mauldin highlights an interview that David Galland, Casey Research partner and managing editor of The Casey Report, gave to the International Speculator, in which he provides immediate and long term projections resulting from the end of QE2. This interview is lengthy but riveting. For those interested in the markets, our economy, and our future, it is a MUST READ!!¬† (more…)

Do Not Wait to Refinance

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 1st, 2010 11:30 AM |

If you are in a position to refinance your mortgage, I would not wait. Why?

The largest buy program in the history of the U.S. mortgage market just ended yesterday. That program, part of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, purchased $1.25 trillion in mortgage-backed securities. In the process, the Fed brought mortgage rates down somewhere in the vicinity of .50% to a full 1% from where they would likely otherwise be. (more…)
