Fed bond buying should end in October: Fisher

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Richard Fisher, the president of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, said Friday that he supports the central bank ending its bond- buying program in October with a final reduction of $15 billion. The Fed has been reducing the pace of its asset purchases by $10 billion per meeting this year, which would leave a balance of $15 billion by the policy meeting in late October. There is a debate among economists about whether the Fed would decide to end the program in October or extend it until December. It is not an arcane technicality because the central bank is not expected to even contemplate tightening until after the asset purchases have been completed. In a speech to community bankers in New Orleans, Fisher, a consistent critic of the program, said the central bank couldn't speed up the pace of the taper because markets are "somewhat addicted to our accommodation of their needs." Fisher made fun of the market's fixation on the "dot chart," the graphic that lays out forecasts of the Fed's benchmark interest rate by all members of the Fed's policy committee. "Some analysts practically worship the dots. They have become analytical idols around which a doxology of sorts has developed," he said. Fisher, who is a voting member of the Fed's policy committee this year, cautioned that the forecasts are little more than "best guesses" and that the composition of Fed voters has been in flux. "Surely economists of high repute are aware of the imperfections of this exercise...we, on the Fed policy committee, certainly are,"

Hi Arty, Thanks for the heads up. Many here would have an account I'm sure.


I changed mine this morning after hearing it on the ABC. It has been in there quite some time! Pretty poor security effort.

Thanks to Aunty ABC in that case.

Mrs A heard it on the News too and told me at breakfast.

... and yes - I've changed my password too; also the "Secret Question" because such a thing can aid identity theft.

Sending emails purporting to be a company insider is a tactic hackers use to get inside the systems of businesses and governments.


Mr Dell, founder of the multinational computer technology company Dell, said hackers were also using distraction techniques to attack big banks which Dell services.


"We are actually seeing very commonly with banks a massive 'denial of service' attack that is a distraction for a theft that is going on with wire transfers on the other side of the bank," Mr Dell said at a technology conference in California.


Dell SecureWorks, a subsidiary of Dell, counts an average of 29 trillion cyber attacks each year.
