Either the FED ends QE or not, wont be a matter of a single day decision: "Ultimately, it is the prevailing economic conditions that will determine when the Fed halts or slows the pace of its asset purchases," Paul expands, adding: "We suspect that another year of lacklustre economic growth in 2013, coupled with only a modest improvement in the unemployment rate, will persuade the Fed to sustain QE into 2014," the analyst concludes.
