The Federal Reserve vs. Investors  Reply with quote  

As the Federal Reserve has back-stopped the market for six years with massive quantitative easing, the upswings have gotten more robust. On the other hand, the collapses have become more epic as well in the past few decades with Federal Reserve intervention. Just look at the tech collapse in 2000-01 and the financial collapse in 2008-09. Federal Reserve intervention was not as robust as it has been in the last six years but the markets still had epic collapses. As an investor and trader, the swings test the best in the business and ultimately mean the charts must be read constantly. While no investor or trader nails the exact bottoms or tops every time, the best traders will consistently pick close to those key points. In addition, the best traders and investors are the ones that do not let emotion take control EVER. Emotion is the one thing that will cause more losses than anything else when investing. While the average investors will chase markets up and down, the pros have that ability to hold back, waiting for the perfect technical setup.

The future promises to be wild as we all will see the results of the massive money printing done by the Japanese Central Bank, European Central Bank and Federal Reserve.

So, your post is saying, "The market is either going to go up or down, now that QE has stopped, and then it's going to reverse again after, going either down or up."

Your words mean nothing, if one looks deeply into the post's actual prognostication (or lack thereof).

The Fed has changed policy many times in the past and it's actions do affect markets for the short term. It's best to take a long term approach and not worry about the momentary ups and downs.
