Fed Chair Janet Yellen and Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer used the Federal Reserve’s conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo., to prepare the world for at least one interest rate hike by year’s end. “They feel the data is strong enough that they are on their way for the next rate hike,” said Ben Emons, chief economist and head of credit portfolio management at Intellectus Partners. The world is a bit different now than in December 2015 when the Fed last raised rates, Emons postulated.

Stocks rose today as markets adjusted to the Fed's hawkish comments on Friday thanks to a muted PCE deflator. The S&P 500 rose 0.5% to 2,180.38 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 107.59 points, or 0.6%, to 18,502.99. The folks at Bespoke Investment Group say beware September: Market bulls never like when our September seasonality report comes around, because it has historically been the worst month of the year for stocks...over the last 100 years, the Dow has averaged a decline of 0.96% in September with positive returns just 42% of the time. No other month of the year has even averaged a decline over the last 100 years, and September has averaged a decline of nearly 1%...If it’s any consolation, September has not been the worst month of the year over the last 20 years.
