No sooner had the tape begun to show signs of exhaustion after a few rough days than the Fed leaks its latest hug-n-kiss combo to buyers of risk assets via the anointed high priest of Fed Whispering, Jon Hilsenrath:

 

Fed Likely to Push Back on Market Expectations of Rate Increase

the Fed is talking about pulling back on its $85 billion-per-month bond-buying program. The chatter about pulling back the bond program has pushed up a wide range of interest rates and appears to have investors second-guessing the Fed’s broader commitment to keeping rates low.This is exactly what the Fed doesn’t want. Officials see bond buying as added fuel they are providing to a limp economy. Once the economy is strong enough to live without the added fuel, they still expect to keep rates low to ensure the economy keeps moving forward.

The lesson here, by the way, is that the Fed is watching the stock market like I watch my wife on the “baby monitors” from my cellphone while I’m at work – incessantly.

Game back on?
