This may come as a surprise to you, but ‘fee’ is not a synonym for ‘tax'. There is both a grammatical and a legal difference. However, to the simple mind, they may appear to be identical.
It looks like it may be a push-pull market today. Push up by those who see the economic advantages of the budget deal vs. the pull down of those seeing the increased likelihood of taper this month.
The FED has been dealing in bonds for generations. Never before did the publicize their policy.
They didn't even publish the minutes of the meetings.
Yes, the negotiation committee reached a deal, but now it has to go through both houses of congress.
1) no budget deal has been reached yet
2) the budget deal will not stop the debt clock`
There is no deal yet. They will be meeting tonight and that has been known for some time. Nothing new yet.
I do not have a target. Neither do I have a prediction for the next move. I do not trade the market. I invest in individual stocks and occasionally trade around a core position. For the present time, I am doing nothing.
Where does it fail as a head and shoulders? If you can't tell me, please do not bother to answer. I tire of your ignorance.
