FED POMO Purchase

The FED has the printing press in hyperdrive now.  The Fed executed another POMO (Permanent Open Market Operation) Purchase today worth $8.154 billion dollars, bringing the total since August 17th 2010 to $104.210 billion dollars.  You can see in the charts below that the Fed has stepped up purchases.
