The end of QE3 does not imply the abandon of the expansionary market policy, but rather a change of its tools. However, it does not mean that stopping the purchasing program is irrelevant for the economy and, thus, for the gold market. What are the effects connected with the halt of buying assets by the Fed?

What does the end of QE3 really mean? We show that it neither implies the real abandon of purchasing assets (due to reinvesting interest and principal payments and rolling over retiring Treasuries) nor the permanent exclusion bond-buying programs from the tools of monetary policy. Investors should also be aware that the end of QE3 does not rule out loose monetary policy. Why?
