Welcome to this week’s Market Drama!

  • The S&P 500 was up roughly 2% by mid-day Friday March, 17th.
  • The bond market has been very volatile. 
  • Bond move index hit an over five-year high that includes COVID.
  • The Fed needs to decide if it’s going to lower interest rates to adjust for the banking sector’s woes, or if it should stay focused on inflation.
  • Leading Economic Index (LEI) fell for its 11th straight month. 
  • Data is not very bullish all in all. 

What to look out for this week: 

  • This Wednesday, the Fed will announce if they are going to hike interest rates 25 basis points, 50 basis points, or not at all. 

Stay tuned for next week.
