The Markets Are Going To Continue To Decline

Right now the markets are going to continue to decline as long as the fed stays on this taper timeline. And I think the Fed is going to be connaissance of that. If you remember, they are basing the taper on the recovery which is the result of the wealth effect of a rising stock market and a rising real estate market. That allows us to lever up and borrow more money to buy more stuff that we can`t afford. But as these bubbles deflate, because the Fed is threatening to remove the props, now all of a sudden the recovery disappears, we are heading right back into recession and the only way to stop the markets from falling and reverse the illusion of a recovery is to do more QE and that is what the Fed is going to do, unfortunately.
