Fed Doesn't Taper: Gold Surges

Click on Image to Enlarge
Ben Bernanke announced the Fed won't taper QE, which is what I've been predicting all along.  Despite continually overstating GDP growth, QE is in place to prop up a malignant banking system.  It does NOT promote economic growth, despite what the financial cheerleaders proclaim.  Remove or taper QE, and the house of cards collapses.

Even whispers of a taper produced a plunging equities market earlier this summer.  An actual unwinding of Treasury bond and mortgage-backed securities purchases would spike 10-year yields, which nobody wants, especially the housing industry.  Hence, a taper today would require additional debt monetization down the road, which would destroy whatever little credibility the Fed has left within capital markets.  QE to infinity, bitchez!

Meanwhile, gold surged.
