Insiders Expect Increased Money Printing to Start in November

A Reuters poll of 16 primary dealers showed all expected the Federal Reserve to return to buying bonds.

All but one predicted the announcement would come at the Nov. 2-3 meeting.

Primary dealers are the dealers that have been specifically designated and cleared to trade directly with the Fed. They include the usual suspects: Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley. By buying bonds, the Fed will be creating money out of thin air and thus increase the money supply.

    Ben and Timmah to the rescue. Change we can believe in.
