Is it sell the rumor and by the news?
We have the Federal Reserve meeting this week and are bouncing along the lower end of our trading range. The market is soft today as we head into the Federal Reserve meeting. We started higher this morning with lower oil prices, however, we sold off mid-day and have recovered to almost breakeven for the S&P.
This meandering for the market doesn’t surprise me. We are headed into the Federal Reserve meeting this week and unless there’s a surprise. The Federal Reserve should raise rates by 25 basis points for the federal funds rate. I believe it’s possible that the market will rally towards the end of the week as this becomes reality. The 10-year treasury has backed up above 2%.
I’ll keep you posted as I see things developing this week. Have a wonderful start to your week.
