Morning Coffee: FOMC Announcement and Stocks Near 52-Week Lows
The FOMC meeting resulted in an announcement of a $10 billion reduction in the committee’s asset purchases. They will add to its holdings of agency mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $25 billion per month rather $30 billion per month, and will add to its holdings of longer-term Treasury securities at a pace of $30 billion per month rather than $35 billion per month. The bond tapering was expected, but the expectation of rates rising sooner was not. Thirteen of the 16 Fed officials see rates rising by the end of 2015 with an average prediction of a 1% rate. They further predicted that rates will be at 2.25% a year later. Read more...
