Do you think Quantitative Easing of US $500 billion if announced by the Fed will trigger a sell off in the stock market? What about US $1 trillion... if announced by the Fed will it trigger a rally?
Well, QE is being done to prop up asset prices by increasing liquidity, so it is, among other things, intended to prevent the stock market from falling. What will actually happen is anyone's guess. It's not a strategy that will put people to work, however, so long-term it is probably useless. And last, increasing the money supply will hurt the dollar, create inflation and boost commodity prices, especially oil, gold, silver and other metals.
I believe it was actually $600 billion. And I agree with JR White's response.
