Dow Jones jumps on rate cut!

Interesting to note that biggest winner today is Walt Disney!

Just about sums it up really.

Re: Dow Jones jumps on rate cut!

What do they do once the rate reaches zero? Can they make it negative?

They won't need to. They need foreign money to finance their deficits. They ain't going to get enough at 3% let alone 0%. Most US savings will be getting shipped out abroad. Industry will be starved of funds for new investment. And suddenly, everyone will wake up to the fact that Bernanke has got a clue what he is f*cking doing!

Re: Dow Jones jumps on rate cut!

The Feds got no choice but to lower rates all the way to zero to avoid a recession, regardless of what it does to the dollar or US assets.

Countries with high savings like china or japan can afford to go into a credit led recession, but not the US as a US recession may well end up in credit card crunch.

What will you do if you can't use your credit card anymore? This will be a nightmare scenario for everyone, the US, exporters and consumers alike.

Re: Dow Jones jumps on rate cut!

I don't buy this. Bubbles burst. That is what they do. Pumping more air in doesn't stop that happening.

Very low interest rates didn't really help Japan and they won't help the US. You cannot put off a recession for ever, and even attempting to probably only makes matters worse. What is require is an economic re-adjustment. Exiting recession requires new investment. That is a tough call when you want people's saving but aren't prepared to pay for them. Too much capital will be sucked out of the economy and invested abroad as with Japan. In the Japanese case this will actually start to help as the starvation of investment will soon come to an end.
