https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/fed-will-restart-qe-november-how-it-will-do-it

"However, and the reason why stocks shot up just before 3pm ET, is that that's when Powell added that “it’s possible that we’ll need to resume the organic growth of the balance sheet, earlier than we thought. ... We’ll be looking at this carefully in coming days and taking it up at the next meeting” in late October. Said otherwise, the Fed may not have announcer QE4 yesterday, but it will likely announce it in the very near future.

Sure enough, as Goldman wrote in its FOMC post-mortem, "we took this as a fairly strong hint and now expect the Fed to resume trend growth of its balance sheet in November with permanent OMOs. It is possible that the FOMC will take that opportunity to also reach a final decision on possibly shortening the maturity composition of its purchases, which it discussed at its May meeting."

So what will the Fed's restart of QE POMO (some analysts, such as Morgan Stanley's Matt Hornbach are very sensitive not to call the return of POMO as QE even though both are effectively the monetization of US Treasurys and the US budget deficit) look like?"

"And so, in just two months QE... pardon the Fed's open market purchases of Treasurys, will return after a 5 years hiatus. Just don't call it QE, whatever you do."



Money printers are going to be very busy helping us get to 100k.  Its almost as if they are our employees or personal servants Cool

Yeah so I read that article and have no fucking clue what the hell he was saying ("organic growth" right after they printed that button of cash) so would you ELI5 this shit for us that don't speak "Insider lingo" and know what all those abbreviations mean.



The Fed has a "balance sheet." This is all the securities they own bought with money USD Shitcoins
printed out of thin air. The Fed uses complex jargon that most people dont truly understand like POMO, OMO, SOMA, and QE to obfuscate the fact they are just printing money, which even 5 year olds understand.

The Fed wont let Congress audit them and the American public and most of the American politicians have no idea what assets the Fed is buying and hodling with its printed shitcoins or how many shitcoins they are really printing. We do know that the Fed is Americas largest landlord as they own trillions of dollars worth of residential mortgages.

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/economy/making-sense/how-the-feds-balance-sheet-works-and-why-investors-care
"The Fed’s assets are made up mostly of government-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities that are issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."

They are the primary reason housing is unaffordable for most and cities like San Fran have streets covered in poop from hoards of homeless.

If I was a powerful wizard with a magic scepter that could enslave mortal Central Bankers and put them under my spell, I would use this scepter to make the Fed print lots of money and call it POMO, OMO, QE, and lower interest rates to near zero. This would inevitably send my Bitcoin to 1 million usd each and beyond and make me a fabulously wealthy Wizard. Unfortunately I dont have this scepter, but bc Im a lucky SOB the Fed is fulfilling my fantasies by doing this of their own free will.

Now that is an ELI5 even I can follow! Grin

It’s the BAKKT day:

Quote

Bakkt Bitcoin Futures are now actively trading on ICE Futures U.S., while the Bakkt Warehouse continues to onboard bitcoin

We take our customers’ trust seriously, and are excited to serve this market


https://twitter.com/bakkt/status/1175945114671337472?s=21

I doubt BAKKT is more excited to serve the market than the market to use BAKKT!

12 trades on bakkt in 6 hours ... assuming this represents current genuine institutional demand (no spoofing, specs, etc) then 1 Mbyte blocks is just fine for the foreseeable future.

Bakkt futures monthly, in real time, in the red circle number of Bitcoins...



Judging by the amount of Bitcoin traded, there is the same interest as in the wohats blog. Roll Eyes

I know they are not targeting plebs with signatures but what'll happen when BTC hits 100k? They'll be losing customers because there will be less and less people around with 1 btc and I am quite sure they won't be fucking around.

BTT still asks 50btc for a VIP membership. It used to be as low as $260 How many VIP's is Theymos getting lately?

This looks like self destruction to me. It was all air.

The only thing matters now is the charts and the game and whatever happened in WO... joke, its the charts and the halvening.

Berkshire Hathaway Class A is trading at over $313k per each share. It's a different league with institutional investors.
Ha BTC50 for "VIP" membership on a forum. Unless it comes with it's own yacht and island full of models i think i'll pass

you will find all relevant info here:

https://fortune.com/2019/09/20/bitcoin-futures-bakkt-launch/


for example:

Quote
The venture behind this effort to wed tradition and disruption, to bring blue-chip asset managers off the sidelines to embrace crypto-currencies, is Bakkt, so-called because it's "backed" by majority owner Intercontinental Exchange. ICE is the $52 billion-market-cap trading colossus that owns the NYSE; NYSE Arca, the world's largest platform for ETFs; ICE Futures U.S., one of the world's dominant players in agricultural commodities; and ICE Futures Europe, home of the Brent crude contract that's the leading benchmark for world oil prices. Bakkt is the brainchild of ICE's founder and CEO, Jeff Sprecher, long the leading figure in the transformation of major exchanges from open-outcry venues dominated by rowdy floor brokers to today's electronic marketplaces.

Bitcoin is priced to perfection where the market somehow assumes it scales to infinity.  Once everyone finds out Lightning Network is a complete garbage, exact recreation of the already existing banking system, permissioned ledger scam that nobody will ever use, and on-chain scaling is also garbage, the price in any reality based world should completely implode.  With 'efficient market hypothesis', it already even should have done so.  So you can tell what I say about this entire thing being one big fucking scam propped up by a single entity using Bitfinex and Tethers to rig the price being true.

Bitcoin is now part of the macro landscape. There should be no more debate about this fact. Top 30 largest world currencies by market cap and growing at the fastest rate of them all. Great chart. I will retweet every time btc moves up a notch in the rankings.
