Regardless, QE3 clearly was a boon for financial markets. Since the Fed announced a third round of quantitative easing in September 2012, the Dow has risen 26% while suffering no declines of 10% or more. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note has risen to a modest 2.284% and the price of Nymex crude-oil futures has tumbled 17%.
The question now is what comes next. The Dow fell after previous stimulus rounds amid weak global growth. Signs that Europe is struggling with deflation could hit stocks around the world in coming months, analysts say.
For now, the Fed will continue buying bonds only to replace maturing debt. Officials have made clear they donít expect to resume full-scale stimulus soon. But they also have left the door open just in case.

"the volume of applications for home purchases is the lowest since August 1995".... so the lowest in a fairly long time.
QE has not 'helped' the economy. I remain of the view that the intent of QE was never to 'help' the economy but rather to ensure that the Government could roll over existing debt at extremely low levels of interest. That happened. Now bond yields are starting to creep higher (at the short end where it counts). The question is: now what?
I think we all know what the answer is to that and it's ugly.
