Central Bankers at Jackson Hole

Well, the much anticipated Jackson Hole Bernanke speech has come and gone. Everyone from bloggers to the big fund managers have taken drastically different interpretations of the speech. Some argue that the speech was even more bullish than announcing a definite QE3 right then and there. Others interpret this as definitely indicating that there will be no QE3 soon and definitely not before the election. On Twitter, PIMCO's Bill Gross claims

"#Bernanke to go out with his guns blazing. #QE3 a near certainty. It will be open-ended but increasingly impotent."
Most of the I-bank analysts interpret the speech as calling for more easing and on fairly quick order.
