Fed set to buy $300B more Treasuries
by w1ld at 4:15 pm EDT, Jun 28, 2011

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- QE2 is just about done. But the Federal Reserve will still be buying massive amounts of long-term Treasuries. In fact, the Fed's purchases over the next year will likely be at least $300 billion. That's half the size of QE2 -- even if QE3 never takes place.

Think of it as QE2.5.
