What do you guys think? Will the start buying other index ETF's down the road too? Makes me worry about my early retirement...
No, they are not going to support shareholders. This is all about keeping credit markets functioning for corporations as certain ETFs hold short-term corporate debt and unless someone is willing to lend to corporations, companies will run out of money.

This is a bailout for debt holders, no different than the infamous Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) program.
