Stock Market Keeps It Up……

Last week there was tremendous anticipation coming in to this week about what Fed Yellen would say regarding interest rates. Wednesday of this week couldn’t come soon enough, so folks could finally, once and for all, fully understand the short-term, if not longer-term, intentions of the Ms. Yellen. What words would she remove? What words would she add, and so on? The market fell some ahead of the report on Wednesday, and it was not doing well on Wednesday, until two o’clock in the afternoon when she came out and told everyone exactly what I thought she’d say. That she’s putting off raising interest rates short term. She said that too many of the economic reports coming in just weren’t solid enough to allow for a rate hike cycle of any kind to begin, even if it was a super slow one.
