    Default Why the End of QE Doesn't Mean the End of the Bull Market in Gold & Silver

    The traditional thinking is that QE helps gold and silver and that stopping QE would strengthen the dollar and further weaken gold and silver.
    This post concludes the opposite:


    “The United States can pay any debt it has because it can always print money to do that.” Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan responding to a question as to whether United States Treasuries were safe to invest in.


    From a (kinda) Gold Standard to Petro Dollars to the Printing Press


    Since the end of World War II the United States dollar has traditionally been a strong currency in relation to other currencies. The Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944 established, among other things, that the United States dollar would be the world’s reserve currency. According to this agreement the dollar could be exchanged by other countries’ central banks into gold upon request. This “gold standard” coupled with the United States’ preeminent military and economic position, gave the world confidence that the dollar was as good as gold.


    By the late 1960′s after a decade of massive U.S. spending relating to: the space race (resulting in landing a man on the moon in 1969); the cold war with Russian; the Vietnam War and; new and expanding social welfare programs associated with Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society it became clear that the United States was spending far in excess of any gold reserves it might have to back the dollar.


    France’s President Charles DeGaulle recognized the potential and actual monetary abuse by the United States under the Bretton Woods agreement:

    It is possible the "gold bull market" may have already peaked in 2011. Despite the continuance of QE.

    the thesis of the post is that the fed is supporting treasuries AND the dollar via QE-why after all has the dollar help up even with successive and larger rounds of QE?

    Nope , just my guess , nothing this year, no need to have the markets dump before Christmas and lose the only economic steam left in 2013.

    I'll believe the Fed is going to end QE when I see it. Meanwhile, keep watching the 10Y (interest rates).
    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Tin Foil Hats, Economic Reality and the Total Perspective Vortex

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?
