    He is talking about bringing rates back to the 3.5-4.5% range, RIGHTTTT like that's going to happen anytime soon, bubble ben bernanke is going to wait as long as he can to keep rates low as possible, those 3.5% rates wont be seen for years. I have heard some estimates on raising rates going as far as the end of 2011. The banks are having too much fun now, why spoil it so soon, 0% rates are the best thing a bank could get, I mean they are posting profits in the billions while the economy still lags behind. No need to take away all this excitement, let it run its course and let these low interest rates create the next asset bubble because that's the only thing they know how to do.
  3. Hot air. Someone at the Fed will shut him up one way or the other because he's not on the "team".
  4. I recall better days when the very mentionnig of a rate hike would have meant a sharp sell off in stock markets. But nowadays imbecile morons are sitting in front of their Wall Street screens with IQ's not higher than a chimpanzee !

    Two of the world's largest central banks are calling for higher rates and not one single reaction either on the currency, Bond or stock market side!

    The day all these morons are running to the exits will be my FUN DAY !:mad: :mad: :mad:
  5. The reaction will come when and IF they ever follow through on all the jawboning and threats.
