QE ending or tapering or maybe not, is important but what counts is how the economy does. I would not pay much attention to this stuff and would certainly not rely on my opinion as to the end results of QE2 becoming a vague memory.
Remember all of the economist and talking heads who were predicting run away inflation in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and in 2013 due to QE1 and 2? Heh, heh.....I try not to listen to all of the people predicting the future, including myself.
QE may end sooner or later but what the outcome will be, none of knows.
Why not worry about the Chinese economy, or maybe the Euro zone, or maybe the EMs that seem to be doing not so well now? or better yet, worry about the unpredictable event that is going to drive the indexes down by 20% or more, sooner or maybe later.
I moved from OR to AR, and I am now back in the North West, 9 months later, so maybe like the Professor, I will just make better use of my time and go to the coast.
