wescobrk Posted May 21, 2020 Share Posted May 21, 2020 Anyone want to chime in about how long the Fed can continue expanding their balance sheet at this rate until the capital markets start to go south? The Fed says they don't have a limit. This is pretty fascinating stuff as far as how long their buying everything (including junk bonds even buying etfs) even talk of buying equities at some point. I think their balance sheet is up to about $7 trillion. So the Fed's balance sheet is about 1/3rd of GDP. I'm not sophisticated enough around macro economics as far as what point the capital markets will no longer be propped up. 50%? 100% 200%? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
