Markets: Is The Bottom In? Depends On The Fed.

This is all about the Federal Reserve. Wether or not we hit bottom depends on wether the Fed capitulates.

I heard a Fed governor talk about how great the economy is and how it is going to continue on improving. It was Bullard. And Bullard was saying that this year economic growth is going to be a lot faster than it was last year. Last year we were at 1.8 percent and he is saying it will be about 2.5 percent this year.  I do not know where he is getting that number from because this year off to a much worse start than last year.

So, I do not know why he is so optimistic. So, as long as the Federal Reserve has this type of rhetoric it is going to be hard for the market to bottom. (Select Sector Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF), SPDR S&P 500 Index ETF (SPY), Nasdaq 100 Index ETF (QQQ))
