  1. may be funny money just went to rebuild banks' decimated balance sheets
  2. Stoping QE does not mean reversing to-date "green shoots" - this is where the flaw in your understanding lies
  3. Too little of it - deflation abiss Too much - currency collapse The balancing act is to give the economy and the HM a floor - neither less, nor more If King is as prudent as he used to appear prior to 2007, when he was the only person critical of loose lending at City dinners and booed for that, it is what he will try to achieve - put the floor under - neither less, nor more
  4. They have the obligation to report their activities on a quarterly basis just as corporates do
  5. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...id=a.MmHhH0PtF0 Aug. 5 (Bloomberg) -- The Bank of England will end a five- month program of bond purchases as Europe’s second-largest economy shows signs of emerging from a recession, said a majority of the firms that bid at government debt auctions. Eight of 12 primary dealers surveyed by Bloomberg said the central bank will stop the program after announcing a pause at its monthly meeting tomorrow. Four -- BNP Paribas SA, RBC Capital Markets, Merrill Lynch & Co. and UBS AG -- predict policy makers will increase purchases. The Bank of England has spent 125 billion pounds ($212 billion) of the 150 billion pounds authorized by the Treasury in March, equivalent to almost 10 percent of Britain’s gross domestic product, to help contain borrowing costs and pull the economy out of the recession. Central bank Governor Mervyn King’s policy of so-called quantitative easing helped spur a 23 percent increase in loans to small companies, British Bankers’ Association data show. “The Bank of England may have done enough,†said Jamie Searle, a fixed-income strategist in London at Citigroup Inc. “They will probably announce a pause and reassure the market they can step in and resume the program quickly if need be. Our view is they won’t need to because the economy is beginning to recover.â€
  6. Banks have been known to manipuilate the stock exchange in the great depression to the point where they sucked in investors last cash and then let it drop like a brick But here is a more recent story http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/b05f60f2-7df3-11...144feabdc0.html "Investors would certainly be a little stupid to think that the FTSE rally has been measured on a normal sample of trades. Over the 11 days of gains, daily volumes on the Stock Exchange averaged less than 1bn, compared with 2.3bn-2.5bn a year ago. As market watcher David Buik, of BGC Partners, put it: “Volumes have been absolutely rubbish, 800m-900m – it just goes to show the brittleness of the rallyâ€. It’s insufficient data for Manoj Ladwa of ETX Capital, who this week warned: “A lot of the improvement in corporate performance has been down to cost cutting, stock market volumes are still low, confidence is fragile.†Homeowners would be even more stupid to believe those house price rises were based on anything like a meaningful sample size. Over the periods covered by the indices, sale volumes were down by around 75 per cent, compared with the 10-year average – and down by 50 per cent on last summer. As former statistics software vendor Nick Hopkinson, now of Property Portfolio Rescue, put it: “Such an illiquid housing market makes looking at monthly price trends statistically meaningless.†It’s not sufficient data for Paul Samter of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, who this week admitted: “The outlook is still sluggish.â€
  7. Maybe they have two decent incomes did not hang a mortgage/car HP/CC debt around their neck (as most idiots in this country do) and have a very low rental by making a good choice about the parts of the country to avoid living in You get what you deserve

  9. Normal trading volumes are 2-3 billion shares a day they currently stand at 800-900 million shares a day both FT and yahoo finance and also bank analyst point at this gains on low volumes there is also somewhere a trading theory that on exceptionally low volumes market moves exactly in the opposite direction of the trend (that is even if it is not being manipulated)
  10. trading volumes 800-900mln a day vs 2-3bln a day normal level 400mln a day will make you a market maker/manipulator rally of 100 days long will not require more than 40-50bln funding to manipulate FTSE
