The Fed Has Officially Launched its Next QE Program

As I’ve been warning for several weeks, World War III has begun.

The difference between this World War and the last two is that this one will be financial in nature – rather than bullets and bombs, it’s going to be fought with central banks and currencies.

The European Central Bank (ECB) officially “fired the first shot” of this war two weeks ago when it launched several aggressive massive monetary policies, cutting its interest rates even deeper into negative territory while simultaneously launching a new Quantitative Easing (QE) program.

At that time, I noted that it was only a matter of time before the U.S. and Europe’s other major trading partners “returned fire” by launching their own monetary programs.

You see, in a world completely saturated with debt, no major country can afford to have its currency strengthen too much. The stronger the currency, the more expensive it is to service your debt (each unit of currency is worth more).

Which is why, as soon as Europe chose to devalue the Euro by printing money and cutting interest rates, I knew it was only a matter of time before the U.S. responded.

Last week it did.

The Fed Just Launched “Stealth QE”

Unbeknownst to most investors, last week, the Fed launched another Quantitative Easing (QE) program.

QE is a monetary policy through which a central bank prints new money and uses it to buy debt from financial institutions.

When the Fed launches QE, it does two things:

  1. It gives those financial firms access to capital.
  2. It begins to expand its balance sheet.

Since 2018, the Fed’s balance sheet was in a downtrend as it shrank via the Fed’s Quantitative TIGHTENING (QT) program.

QT is QE in reverse: The Fed allows its balance sheet to shrink, withdrawing capital from the financial system.

But last week this all changed. The Fed’s balance sheet began to grow… and not by a little, but by a whopping $75 BILLION in a single week.

To put that number into perspective, at its most aggressive QE program back in 2013, the Fed was doing $80 billion worth of QE per month.

It just did that in the span of five days.

As I outlined in my bestselling book The Everything Bubble: the Endgame For Central Bank Policy, at some the Fed would be forced to go NUCLEAR with its monetary programs to maintain the Everything Bubble.

That point is NOW.

And it’s opened the door to the single greatest profit-making opportunity of the last 15 years.

“Get In, Profit, and Get Out”

When a central bank goes nuclear with monetary policy, it opens the door to extreme volatility in its currency.

The last time the Fed was engaged in these kinds of policies from 2010-2012, the U.S. dollar was a trader’s paradise, whipsawing this way and that. If you were able to “get in, profit, and get out” of the U.S. dollar during this time period, you could have generated a literal fortune.

With the Fed now engaged in NUCLEAR rounds of monetary policy, the gains will be even bigger.

That’s why I specifically designed my Alpha Currency trading strategy to use currency ETFs – I wanted the massive returns without the risk.

Since its launch, Alpha Currency Profits has shown traders returns of:

  • 52% in two days 
  • 63% in five days
  • 75% in five days 
  • 79% in four days 
  • Even 100% in just four days.

We’re showing traders a win rate of 85%, meaning we’re making money on OVER eight out of every 10 trades we make.

In the trading world, a win rate like this – with every single winner in the double digits – is UNHEARD OF.

If you’re interested in seeing these kinds of returns, you can find out more about this unique trading system below… and the best part is, we’re trading currencies without touching the dangerous FOREX market!
