CNBC claims in a new report that investors are so focused on when the Federal Reserve will begin mortgage-backed securities tapering that they have missed the bigger picture. CNBC has more on how tapering will impact the financial markets as a whole:

"This taper thing is a ruse," said Kevin Ferry, president of Cronus Futures Management in Chicago. "If you really put the question to (investors of what tapering means), they don't have the answers."
