Today, the Fed’s favorite reporter, Jon Hilsenrath at the Wall Street Journal published an article completely refuting his own work from just two weeks ago.
If you’ll recall, two weeks ago, Hilsenrath wrote that the Fed was planning to taper its QE purchases before the end of the year.

These moves are happening on a day when the market is basically flat. It’s not an accident that they’re diving together.
The reason is: During the immediate post-crisis era, gold and Apple were huge outperformers, that were uncorrelated to the day-to-day “risk on, risk off” regime that was dominating financial markets.
Remember, investors are desperate to find uncorrelated assets that don’t just [...]
