Helicopter Ben

ist auf dem Weg zum Hangar. Bitte anschnallen. Die FED macht jetzt Ernst mit "Quantitative Easing". Press release FOMC:

To provide greater support to mortgage lending and housing markets, the Committee decided today to increase the size of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet further by purchasing up to an additional $750 billion of agency mortgage-backed securities, bringing its total purchases of these securities to up to $1.25 trillion this year, and to increase its purchases of agency debt this year by up to $100 billion to a total of up to $200 billion. Moreover, to help improve conditions in private credit markets, the Committee decided to purchase up to $300 billion of longer-term Treasury securities over the next six months. The Federal Reserve has launched the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility to facilitate the extension of credit to households and small businesses and anticipates that the range of eligible collateral for this facility is likely to be expanded to include other financial assets. The Committee will continue to carefully monitor the size and composition of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet in light of evolving financial and economic developments.

Wenn ich richtig informiert bin, ist der EZB ein solches Vorgehen untersagt...

Der Euro ist daraufhin gegenüber USD um 4,5 Cent auf knapp 1,35 USD gestiegen.
