Taper Talk Is Back – It’s Not Going Away This Time

Friday, November 22, 2013 - 8:22 AM
"There is no doubt in my mind that Yellen is going to push off the Taper for as long as she can. But even the Great Dove can’t push the Taper off for too long. I think that Yellen will be forced to initiate a Taper by March. That suggests that there is a four month window before the actual event, but I don’t think the Taper Talk is going to subside as it did in October/November."

If the fed has stated in the past that their policies would continue until unemployment reach 6.5% why would anyone think that their policy would change when the unemployment rate is 7.3%?

Yellon is more of a hawk on unemployment, so we shall see what if anything she can do.
