Just had to be the first to get that one in - ahead of all the obsessive stockmarket watchers on this forum who were probably sitting all day watching every up and down tick itching to be the first to say it! :D:D:D

I knew that this would happen as a guru predicted it.

I only see bad news here... INFLATION here we come!!! :(

Yep and yet interestingly some people think deflation is the big fear.

Stock market up, gold up, house prices up, oil up, food prices up, exports up, manufacturing output up..........etc etc etc.

Anybody backing the deflation horse is seriously onto a loser imho, seeing as the markets are in effect a reflection of the future then, well you can see what the 'clever' money is doing ditching cash and heading for assets.

Fill ya boots guys and get leveraged (on a fixed interest rate of course)................

I hear you, mate...

BUT what can you do? I do not think we as a consumerist society will ever be able to see the sense in tightening our belts. What do the average sheeple do in times like this? Shopping Therapy!!!

Meanwhile, back in the real world, in the UK's largest single trading partner:

Separately, Manpower Inc. said today in a statement that its index of U.S. companies’ hiring plans set a record low for the third straight quarter. The latest reading was based on the outlook for fourth-quarter jobs. Manpower, the world’s second- largest staffing firm, began compiling the gauge in 1962.

Bloomberg LINK.

This on top of yesterday's US Consumer Credit figures...something of a disconnect?

So, what does that make today - White Wednesday? :o

Actually it's Rose-tinted Wednesday or to continue your alliterative theme in the style of Jonathan Ross, Wose-tinted Wednesday.

Crap, so it is inflation.

Is interesting that seems to be the conclusion all of a sudden, not just you, but seems to be everywhere these last couple of days, with the exception of daily express front page today where "deflation" was mentioned in a largeish font.

You know what happens when markets reach a blindingly obvious consensus , its normally the opposite ;)

Why didn't they think of QE much earlier? We'd not have to put up with the recessions of the 70s, 80s and 90s doh.

We can all be rich, hurrah!
