    Default Fed is ready to save you by more asset purchases

    WASHINGTON: The Federal Reserve is mulling additional asset purchases next year to boost jobs amid a fragile economy, the minutes of a policy meeting released Wednesday showed.

    With the current $45 billion a month "Operation Twist" asset adjustment program scheduled to end in December, the minutes suggested that the Fed was ready to go ahead with more outright bond purchases, aimed at pushing long-term interest rates lower.

    "A number of participants indicated that additional asset purchases would likely be appropriate next year after the conclusion of the maturity extension program in order to achieve a substantial improvement in the labour market," the document said.

    A new program would overlap with the "QE3" open-ended $40 billion a month asset purchase program announced in September.

    can someone please highlight to USA FED's botak ben that he got the wrong strategy all the time lah... he dam bodoh 1....

    he keeps printing $$ does no use to the USA market/economy,... all the residential property holders there are under water,... the home owners are having negative equity,... so how they refinance to new lower interest rate mortgage ??... everything forever get stuck there lah !!....

    but hor.... if botak ben buys up just 10-20% of Singapore private residential properties, and make it big in CNN/CNBC media news,... then S'pore residential properties price sure will shoot up by at least 2x.... then home ownerd here can cash out and help purchase/re-invest into USA property,... then USA property saved and USA economy kicked start again.... then everybody happy !!... right ??...

    This area is really booming with Duo, Southbeach,etc. Shop till you drop. Duo is a nice design. More functional than sky habitat and interlace.

    Think these gov's bodies know next year is the HUAT HUAT HUAT year for pty..

    From now on, KBW dare not come out anymore CM.. if he do, he knows for sure kena butter till jialet jialet... that's why recently he act blur keep saying that the pty mkt is "stabilising" (meaning no more CM)

    And Tharman already said "wait abit longer".. actually he is hinting to us to wait.. to submit cheque to marketing agent once their (gov) upcoming project launching soon at Bugis
