The latest interventions are so extreme and over the top that they have sent a loud message around the world that the U.S. is in big trouble. Rather than reducing uncertainty and increasing stability in the markets as they had planned, these actions will only create more fear.
And fear begets selling. World class investors are extremely risk averse and will be more anxious to cash out of U.S. financial instruments than ever before. When the markets' celebration of the latest plan starts to fade, look for these world class investors to start selling with both hands. The precipitous drop in the market averages will continue, destroying the value of the assets in your retirement accounts you have worked all you life to accumulate.
