Even though the Federal Reserve has been telegraphing a September start date for the unwinding of its massive $4.5 trillion balance sheet, one veteran market expert is buying this.
Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, said it's "impossible" for the Fed to unwind its balance sheet. "They're going to blow it up even bigger," he said in an interview with TheStreet. "The balance sheet is going to go to $10 trillion. There is no way that they can unload these treasuries and mortgage backed securities."
When asked about the Fed's recent specificity on its balance sheet unwinding plans, Schiff still wasn't buying it. "I don't care what they told us," he said. "They like to talk - let's see what they do. They were talking about raising interest rates for years before they did it."
