When this finally comes to its inevitable end, Main St. will be in complete wreckage and Wall St. will see the mother of all asset bubbles implode.
The FED is boxed in, either the Wall St. junkies collapse with no QE injections or they eventually remove the dollar as the world reserve currency and then it is really game over.
So far today, the DOW has been see-sawing in about a 90-point range—Basically trading sideways.

Yes, and then when it all tanks they will be screaming for a bailout!
