posted 6/2/2011 in General

Market Commentary Highlights...
  • As the grand ocean liner the QE2 embarked on her final voyage, she ran aground on a sandbank near the Isle of Wight.
  • Might the markets run aground on unseen risks as the Fed's flagship QE2 program comes to its finish at the end of June?
  • We do not think so, the economy is much better equipped to handle unseen risks than after the end of QE1.
  • The real issue for the post-QE2 environment may be the financial position of the United States and the outlook for fiscal, rather than monetary, policy.
