I thought QE 2 was being used solely to purchase treasuries.

How come I read on the blogs that FED POMO actions are also taking place in the equity markets ?

Am I missing something ?

So how do you monetize this to your advantage? How does it effect the stocks you are buying?

Thank You. The second link explained it very well to me. Now I understand.

I guess since the FED would not sell Maiden Lane "toxic assets" back to AIG and thinks they will get a higher price in the coming weeks, we can be confident markets will have an UPWARDS bias at least in the short term

But what is the practical aspect of this? How does this relate to your stock picks?

But this forum is not about the Fed, it's about investing in the stock market. Maybe this thread belongs in The Economy, Banking, Markets and Global Stocks discussion group

Why get personal? Why not address the issues I asked about? Like:

Note: Not even the courtesy of an answer

IMO it must relate to the general stock market in some manner. Because, the stock market is exploding upward even though it shouldn't be.
