Fed Speak comes and goes. Again, NOTHING they "do" or "don't" say changes anything.
"The Fed said we're not going anywhere," Larry Smith, chief investment officer at Third Wave Global Investors. "They're not saying inflation is going to the moon, they're not saying it's a huge problem right now, but they're concerned that inflation won't come down to their comfort range."
Like the Fed is ever going to tell us the truth. The truth hurts, and the peeps can't handle the truth.
Though some investors were hoping the Fed would raise the possibility of a future rate cut, they weren't surprised by the committee's stance. Moreover, they were relieved to hear the Fed is not more inclined than it has been to raise rates, a move that would make access to capital more expensive and potentially hurt the stock market.
Is that meant to imply that cheap and easy money is driving the stock indexes to historical highs? Shocking!
