FED No Change: Market Down 1% as Less Monetary Accommodation Likely in Future

Downside Risk to Economy Diminished So Less “Extreme Monetary Policy” In the Future?

Market Stable with downward bias :S&P flat to down 18 pts-10 Year Bond Yield At 2.28% up 3.9%

FED Is Optimistic  about the economy: housing, consumer sentiment, financial backdrop but with fiscal drag. Bond purchases are tied to the economy.

The FED will continue to buy bonds at the $85M monthly pace so scaling back on money printing unlikely. The FED sees the jobless rate falling as low as 6.5% by the end of 2014.

Bond mavens such as Bill Gross and Jeff Gundlach see “tapering” as a slow process so 10 Year TSY likely to stay in range above 2% and below 2.5% and are bullish in short term for long term treasuries.
