Will the Fed announce QE3 on Friday?
The market has already figured in QE3 of $500 billion, but do you think the Fed is actually going to announce it on Friday? If they don't, will the market fall hard?
I can look where you're looking, but I can't see what you're seeing.

Re: Will the Fed announce QE3 on Friday?
I was also wondering if, once they do announce it, will the markets rally?

I freaking couldn't believe that we have half the US dealing with an earthquake and stocks were rallying today. And CNN has the east coast earthquake buried under the Colorado quake, and the Quadaffi news, until just recently,

The asian market is mixed right now, but still, not down much, not up much. Weirdness afoot all over the place.

No QE3 announced Friday.They are already doing QE3 via currency swaps.

That said,the market will still take it badly.Good thing the markets will be closed Monday because of the hurricane,other wise they would probably be limit down.

Makes one wonder does it not lol?

More speculation about the announcement:

"Indeed, it seems the worse the economic numbers are, the more likely the Fed is thought to be inclined to launch QE3. That helps explain the sharp, 3% jump in stocks Tuesday, albeit from a technically oversold position."

[link to online.barrons.com]

and

"We know that Bernanke & Co. have been actively trying to downplay any talk of QE3 and today's WaPo article "Ben Bernanke unlikely to announce big new plans at Jackson Hole is a fine example of this "leaking" process."

[link to www.cnbc.com]


and

"Marc Chandler, global head of currency strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman, looks for a convergence of indicators to figure out the odds of QE3. Right now, he told me, surveys of things like sentiment and consumer confidence are quite negative, but "real data like retail sales - those data are holding up better."

For Chandler to view QE3 as likely, he says, "I would want to see that survey data as lead indicators for the real sector data. I would want to see the real sector data break down. We're not seeing that yet.""

It isn't looking good for QE3. My bet is, no, it will not be announced on Friday.
