Fed's Fisher says would dissent from any new QE

Fed's Fisher says would dissent from any new QE (by Greg Robb)

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Richard Fisher, the president of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank vowed on Tuesday to vote against any additional bond-buying program once the current $600 billion purchase plan expires in June. "It is hard for me to envision a scenario where I would not use my voting position this year to formally dissent should the FOMC recommend another tranche of monetary accommodation," Fisher said in a speech in Dallas. Fisher said he also expects to be at the forefront of the effort to push the Fed to trim back its Treasury holdings and tighten policy at the "earliest sign" that inflation pressures are moving out of the commodity markets and into the general price stream.
