Anyone else excited about the Alibaba IPO? - BennyAndTheInkJets
I usually don't care about IPOs other than ones like Facebook where I know some mid 20's trader is having the worst day of his/her life defending the stock with their boss over their shoulder threatening their job (and probably life for the FB IPO).

I think its time we talk about the next Fed policy tool - BennyAndTheInkJets
[b]Historical Context[/b] Before 1990, the Fed's biggest tool for influencing monetary policy was commercial bank's required reserves. From 1990 to 2008, it was the Federal Funds target rate. Since 2008, it's been quantitative easing and forward guidance. Going forward, I believe its going to be th...

Yellen's Testimony to Congress - BennyAndTheInkJets

Since self-reflection and humility are qualities present in all ranters, tell me, what did you expect in the preseason that didn't happen?
