30/06/2011 - What Will Happen to the Stock Market When QE2 Ends?
The second round of the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing
program, better known as QE2, will expire this week.
The QE2 policy was officially announced on November 4, 2010,
and has been widely credited with subsequent stock market gains.
And now, according to rumors, the end of this "experimental" program
will kill the stock rally -- with potential impact across all
Let's think about that.
For starters, there is little "experimental" about
QE2. As EWI's November 2010 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast pointed

U.S. is applying today -- rate cuts followed by quantitative
easing -- finds its stock market still down more than 75% from
its December 1989 peak."
Also, this chart, from EWI president Robert Prechter's January
2011 Elliott Wave Theorist, shows "the effect" the
first round of quantitative easing (QE1) had on the market:
But investors have short memories. And even many of those who
remember how powerless the Fed was during the 2007-2009 crash
are convinced that "it's different this time."
