Markets Queasy After Sick Janet Yellen Ends Live Speech: “Initial Reaction Was A Dive in Stocks”

    It might be taken as a bad omen for the economy. Perhaps, it was the sign of a sick market.

    Then again, the Federal Reserve is not too obvious with its hints about future policy and its effects on policy.

    Nonetheless, during a speech where many were watching for news about a possible rate hike, Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen had a bizarre moment on stage where she stumbled over several words, then froze up as if she was having a stroke before appearing to nearly vomit and ending the speech abruptly. CNBC noted that she “appeared to pause and cough multiple times” and that “Yellen told officials at the event that she was light-headed.”

    It was really quite startling. CNN Money posted: People are freaking out about this Janet Yellen speech, while Twitter took notice as well.

    Yellen was escorted off stage and treated by a medic from the UMass campus where she was giving the live speech. Reports were quick to point out that Yellen was not hospitalized – lest further confidence be lost. “She’s fine…” was the quick response from officials, while she reportedly resumed her schedule.

    “Chair Yellen felt dehydrated at the end of a long speech under bright lights. As a precaution, she was seen by EMT staff on-site at U-Mass Amherst. She felt fine afterward and has continued with her schedule Thursday evening,” the Fed said in a statement.

    Zero Hedge reported on the strange occurrence, and posted the video of the final minutes of her speech, when she pauses, appears uneasy, and takes several moments to regain her composure, before ultimately deciding to “stop there” after burping or nearly vomiting twice.

    Although her health reportedly improved after leaving the stage, it was enough to rattle the markets who see any slips as bad news for investors.

    As Zero Hedge reported, the initial reaction was a dive in stocks (as the chart shows):

    Beyond this temporary decline on the stock market, which lasted only a few minutes, the markets are spooked and have been for some time.

    Already, stock futures dropped significantly ahead of her speech at University of Massachusetts Amherst and the market was down at closing.

    There was some indication of changing Fed policy, and lots of mention about China’s devalued currency. “Federal Reserve boss Janet Yellen said she expects a US interest rate hike by the year’s end,” the Business Times reported.

    However, there remains a great deal of nervousness:

    “Everybody right now has become a technical analyst because this market action is not predicated on economic news, earnings, or overseas action,” Pavlik said. “There’s just a general lack of confidence and people are confused and when that happens, they don’t buy stocks.” (source)

    The Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing policy has severely strained investors who are earning little to no return on their money, while many understand that any increase in the interest rate – currently at or near zero – could also be devastating to the market and investors.

    It is interesting that so many political faux pas and gaffes play into the news of the day.

    Online commenters offered speculation that Yellen could have been poisoned or electronically attacked by an adversary such as China, who might seek to threaten or silence her before raising rates.

    It left others speculating that she was having trouble holding it together under the weight of guilt about the negative impact that the Fed’s decisions have on the country. One commenter wrote: “She knows collapse of the bond/dollar bubble is right around the corner” while another said, “This woman knows damn well what is about to happen to the United States. The sh** is about to hit the fan very soon.”

    Rightly or wrongly, Yellen’s ‘falter’ on stage could trigger further rumblings about confidence in the United States’ private central banks, and in world markets generally, which are now falling and could collapse with the right piece of bad news.

    Things stand at a precipice, and the Fed is clearly not prepared to play chicken.

      1. The people in the markets probably took one look at this ugly bitch and the knee jerk reaction was to sell.

        • Lloyd Blankfein and Jamie Dimon announce they have cancer; Boehner is ousted from power; and Yellen strokes out at the podium. Maybe the righteous hand of God is finally being shown!

          • Cancer my ass. They are doing a fade so they can which away to their BOLs.

            • I’ve read similar sentiments on other websites, that the elitists are making excuses as they disappear to their bunker hidey holes. If anyone has info on this, please share it. As Director of Homeland Security Janet “The Bull” Napolitano used to say: If you see something, say something.

            • That was my first thought too.

          • Amen H Muller.

      2. If raising the rates from ZERO to 0.25% is going to cause a market crash, then the market is nothing but a fraud to begin with.

        In the late 1980s the rates for home mortgages was about 14%. Now they are 3% to 5%.

        How is our economy going to function if rates go back to the 1980s levels?

        We are screwed.

        • i was saying back since 04 how it must be sooo hard being the fed chair, every DAY, waking up and wondering how the hell you’re going to keep it all together for one more day. now THAT’S got to be the world’s most stressful job!…all explained in my next post/link. it’s a very good read, but looong.

            • Wonderfully written piece. Clear and concise. Hits like a hammer with unassailable facts, very little opinion throughout- just blatant evidentiary proof of the unsustainability of the greedy pricks who are bleeding our posterity into lifetimes of servitude to a bankster elite.

        • Exactly. Yellen gets queasy and suddenly the markets dive. Talk about fragile.

      3. Boehner is leaving. That’s good. Who are we going to get next? There is no savior in that party.

        • Yellen is spokesperson for the Axis of Evil…Banksters. All these evil workers are knowingly doing the work of satan.

          No wonder they feel sickly. They are sick to the core. They have sold their very souls to be a part of an evil empire that causes people pain, and suffering.

          article says,
          “…. in world markets generally, which are now falling and could collapse with the right piece of bad news.”

          That is a profound statement because that is all that it would take. Imagine if the headlines read “Hundreds of thousands Die in Earthquake”: that’s all it would take. Especially if it were Tokyo or the Gay Bay.

        • I predict we’ll see more rats jumping ship because they know what’s coming.

        • Boehner was the opposite of a savior. he was not a Conservative and he was complicit with Obama’s agenda.

          I am sure there will be a governmnet shut down coming, so double check your vacation plans if you are going to a National Park. They are the only things that actually get shut down.

      4. Holee cow, she was seizing up all over the place.
        Its painfully obvious she didn’t write that speech…

        • I had a similar thought except I thought perhaps her speech was sabotaged. Of course she could have just been choking on her own words.

      5. A seizure or stroke? Can’t imagine the inherent stress of that job.

      6. what u see is just exactly what u r getting….

      7. “Yellen faltered at end of her speech. Last page was agonizing. I don’t think she felt well but she seemed better when she left the stage.”

        Imagine my surprise! What I see is a cunt trying to contain her laughter!

      8. No one here should be surprised by any event that occurs in the markets or with key people.

        It is the reason why we prep.

        Imagine the knee jerk response of the market. Oh, how fragile the system is.


        • ZZZZZZzzzzzz

      10. The swindlers are going to play deathly ill and vanish. Because the jigs up!

        • I don’t know how these people live with themselves. I would fell terrible if i had to lie to someone.

          I would rather be cheated than to cheat someone else. The guilt would be too much for me, not to mention the wrath of God.

      11. Conscience got your tongue??

      12. I wish she would have passed away! Oh wait, that is too kind of a punishment for a Satanic tyrant like her. The people should be able to give her a swinging good time.

      13. Stocks seem to be up by the last time I took a look? All smoke and mirrors, lead the sheeple into believing that all is well in the neighbor-hood.
        I just wish that people would quit putting dates on when this is going to happen or that is going to happen.
        TPTB will continue this can kicking till they feel that complete control is theirs.
        Just when you think it can take no more? Everything keeps ticking along piece by piece, bit by bit…….

      14. I’m really not too worried about the stock market. But this put my radar on full alert.
        A government shutdown Oct. 1 could immediately suspend or delay food stamp payments to some of the 46 million Americans who receive the food aid.

        The Agriculture Department said Tuesday that it will stop providing benefits at the beginning of October if Congress does not pass legislation to keep government agencies open.

        “If Congress does not act to avert a lapse in appropriations, then USDA will not have the funding necessary for SNAP benefits in October and will be forced to stop providing benefits within the first several days of October,” said Catherine Cochran, a spokeswoman for USDA. “Once that occurs, families won’t be able to use these benefits at grocery stores to buy the food their families need.”

      15. She was coughing up a rat she ate. Lizard woman.

        • A scout from the planet Niburu no doubt.

      16. Something is happening to the tribe of Satan. First Lloyd Blankfein and now this midget bitch. God please don’t cause them natural death since many innocents blood have been shed by them on the planet and they must face a painful death by those remaining.

      17. Best case of stage fright that I have seen in awhile.

        • Sorry to hear that NB. Don’t know what’s going on here. All kinds of wild-ass shite. Soothsayers, ginned up tele-evangelists that can’t get a sponsor. Little being posted on here that could help some others. Wish your stuff was posted as I take stock in what you have to say(advice). Wish you well.

          • POP


        • Something strange going on with InfoWars site as well.
          Lots of comments deleted/under moderation.

      19. Most likely it was a minor stroke-the classic sign of that is light-headed, nausea, verbal motor skills gone to crap and then subside.
        Lack of hydration can trigger stroke of this type-especially since she’s getting up there in years. However, she knows that the system that she inherited is screwed, and to try and squeeze more bucks out of the *choke-gag-ack!!* middle class (or what’s left of it) will probably result in the biggest middle finger upraised since 1776.
        My $00.25 worth.

        • On the biggest middle finger ever raised,,,,
          I SURE HOPE SO!
          Cant be soon enough,
          Unfortunately too many are afraid to buck the system so it will take an extreme nooge,,,,

      20. That is one of our fearless leaders?

      21. Janet felt ill because she was ” lite headed”, I think she has been lite headed most of her life then.

        • She was choking on the spittle caused by the lies she was to spout.

        • No worries, she just went backstage and coughed up a fur ball.
          Dikes do it all the time.
          Business as usual.

      22. Maybe she was feeling sick, I don’t know but I’m suspicious of everything these days. Could she have been reading something she didn’t want to read out loud? Reminds me of Hillary when she so called fainted and hit her head when she was called to speak in Congress about Benghazi.

      23. Me thinks she needs to get a new set of love eggs… BZZZZZZZZ.

        • Ewwwwww.

      24. The only time a politician is telling the truth is when they are calling another politician a liar.

      25. Deals with the stress well, I see.

        Stress? WHAT STRESS? Is… something wrong??


      26. My favorite time of year, ” Hunting Season” and I’m hesitant to leave the majority of my prep’s. never felt this way before.

      27. October 1st, SNAP benefits could run out of funding. Let the games begin, I’M locked and loaded. Started inventoring my preps today. What I thought would take a few hours is going to take 2 or 3 days. Have been adding to them for years and have accumulated a lot more than I thought. I’m feeling better about where I’m at but there is ALWAYS more that needs to be done.
