The Fed is walking a tightrope between inflation and a recession, hoping to find its way to neutral. Bill Gross, of PIMCO, shares their insight.
"There’s a lot of stress in the
financial markets. Let’s face it, this economy, the US economy and
even the global economy is delevering, and when an economy delevers there are
substantial problems and substantial risks.
"We’ve seen a lot of that. We’ve
seen writeoffs in the hundreds of billions of dollars with more to come. But
yeah, there’s a lot of tenuous action in the financial markets these days and I
expect more of it."

Very interesting video from SquawkBox Wednesday morning — I thought Doug Dachille of First Principles Capital Management did a nice job and Gary Kaminsky Neuberger Berman is always solid.
This was not Joe Kernan’s finest interview . . . especially later in the interview.
Part II is here:

Also, this weekend, NBC will be running the very first ever 1975 Saturday Night Live, hosted by none other than George Carlin. Its a must TiVo show.
Those of you who may not be all that familiar with Carlin’s earlier
works should especially catch the 1970′s and 80′s work. Its probably
tame compared to what you are used to today, but Carlin was groundbreaking. Most modern comics owe a huge debt to Carlin.
For those of you without HBO, there’s always the complete set: All My Stuff

U.S. stocks retreated, sending financial shares to their lowest level in five years, on a deteriorating outlook for bank earnings. Rising oil prices pushed crude producers higher, leaving the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average little changed.
Merrill Lynch & Co., Morgan Stanley and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. helped lead the drop after Bank of America Corp. cut income estimates for brokerages and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. advised selling bank shares as credit losses linger into 2009. Oil’s second day of gains pushed down Home Depot Inc., General Motors Corp. and United Airlines parent UAL Corp., while sending energy shares to their first advance in four days. American International Group Inc., the largest insurer, tumbled to the lowest since 1997 on Barron’s recommendation to sell the shares.
Almost two stocks fell for each that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. The S&P 500 rose 0.07 point to 1,318. The Dow decreased 0.33, or less than 0.1 percent, to 11,842.36. The Nasdaq Composite Index slipped 20.35, or 0.9 percent, to 2,385.74.
