Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Synaptics and salesforce.com
U.S. stocks retreated on Thursday after the Fed left interest rates unchanged and signaled that it would continue to tighten monetary policy at a gradual pace. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.04 percent to close at 26,191.22, while the S&P 500 Index shed 0.25 percent to close at 2,806.83. The Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 0.53 percent higher to close at 7,530.89.
Charlie Ripley, senior investment strategist at Allianz Investment Management said that, “With no press conference or expectation for policy change, most market participants viewed the November FOMC meeting as more of a non-event. Despite the headwinds of increased market volatility and tightening financial condition, the Fed appears committed to continuing the gradual process of lifting rates and removing accommodation.”
“With only minimal changes to the statement the Fed is remaining vague about policy changes going forward and likely giving the committee more optionality in a changing market environment,” he added.
