Why Bernanke's clearer message landed with a thud

Mixed signals from the Federal Reserve have rattled investors for weeks. So Bernanke tried to set the record straight Wednesday about the Fed’s plans to shrink its bond-buying program later this year if the economy continues to improve. While investors didn’t necessarily like the content of Bernanke's message, there was little grumbling that he wasn't clear. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
