    i agree , dumb move

    Central planning would be doing nothing. If you did nothing you would be pursuing a deflationary policy. As is this is just getting policy to neutral. Still probably need to cut in couple weeks too.

Nor do I believe that a prudent libertarian case can be made for arguing that we'd be better off had the Fed stood pat.

    The rate cut today was a good start, but we need another 50 basis points at next week’s meeting. At a minimum, the Fed needs to un-invert the yield curve ASAP. A new communication strategy (say level targeting or average inflation targeting) would be even more helpful.
    Sometimes I worry that policymakers think in terms of being “done”. “Oh God, here’s the market asking for another rate cut again. OK, here you go—are we done now?”

    I said they should have had an emergency cut last week. But as is I would probably cut when markets are panicking not when they are rebounding hard to have a little bit of extra effect.

    ...
    You may be right. The very existence of the Fed is a market manipulation and attempt at central planning. They will never get it right.

    Thus, the only solution is to abolish the Federal Reserve.

    That we agree on.

    The thing is if we are going to have monetary policy I would prefer it to not create bubbles when things are good and not overly tight when the economy looks bad.

    The yield curve inverted last year. It seems like lowering rates at the short end would be a no-brainer. If you aren't going to ease now, then when? To me the Fed was way too loose after Iraq and fueled the housing bubble was way too tight in the financial crisis. Kept rates to low for much of the last decade which fueled a market bubble and is not getting too tight again. And I blame all of this on discretion. If you just followed the markets like the two year note policy would be much better.

    Wasn't widely reported last week, but ...

    ...
    Perhaps Friday’s Comex price fall had something to do with the CME Group on Thursday 27 February, where they raised maintenance margins on the Comex 100 oz gold future (GC) by 10% from 5000 to 5500, claiming it was a “normal review of market volatility to ensure adequate collateral coverage“. Those margin changes went into effect at close of business on Thursday 27 February (effective as of Friday 28 February). So the stress of higher margin requirements could be a contributing factor to the Comex selloff.
    ...

    We've seen this before. It really shouldn't be surprising.

    Gold had just broke through the $1,650 resistance before the selloff last week brought it back down to test the $1,580 line. It looks like $1,580 is now the bottom resistance zone and the upper bound of $1,650 will be tested again.
    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?

    Good catch. You're right, they did the exact same with margin requirements repeatedly during the big G/S run 10 years ago. Nothing is left up to market forces. It's all manipulated. That, along with the futures expiration at the end of month, was the reason for the large spot drop.

    Gold futures were headed higher on Thursday, supported by weakness stocks and a slide in government bond yields due to worries about the COVID-19 epidemic.

    Bullion is attracting haven bids as California declared a state of emergency, and more cases of the epidemic were cropping up globally, including in Australia and South Korea, making containment of the disease increasingly challenging.

    “Gold looks like one of the most attractive assets in this global environment, With US rates likely heading towards the zero lower bound.,” wrote Stephen Innes, chief market strategist at AxiCorp, in a Thursday research note.

    “This should mean that both retail and institutional investors, portfolio allocations in gold will rise exponentially,” he said.

    Gold for April delivery GCJ20, 0.572% on Comex were up $9.30, or 0.6%, at $1,652.30 an ounce, after settling off less than 0.1% on Wednesday. May silver 0.458% added 9 cents, or 0.6%, to trade at $17.350 an ounce.

    U.S. government bond yields remain mostly under pressure, with the 10-year Treasury TMUBMUSD10Y, 0.945% holding near a record nadir below 1% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +4.52% and the S&P 500 index SPX, +4.22% set to give back some of Wednesday’s sizable gains.

    Looks like gold surged past $1,650 but was quickly knocked back down. It's hovering right in the $1,650 range and likely won't close above the line today. Maybe tomorrow...

    On second glance, I may have underestimated gold's action for today... $1,670 at the moment....

    Gold has been really strong over the last 24 hours. Looks like @oyarde was right; it's going to take out $1690 either tomorrow or next week.

    At this point I would wait until the dow drops below 23,200 at least . The fed killed the market recovery . Best thing anyone could have done was buy a bunch of 14.00 silver and 1200 gold last summer.
