EOT Position Update – March 18, 2015

| March 18, 2015

Market Snapshot

The S&P 500 was going nowhere fast over the last few weeks.

Investors had been fretting over the potential for the Fed to hike interest rates. But Fed Chair Janet Yellen put those fears to rest today.

She essentially said exactly what investors were hoping to hear.

The Fed dropped the word ‘patient’ from their statement. But an interest rate hike in April is still unlikely. And more importantly, Fed members have cut their forecast for where they think interest rates will be at the end of the year.

At the last meeting in December, the median estimate was 1.125%… now that estimate is 0.625%.

In other words, it appears that interest rates will stay lower for longer than expected and the rate of the interest rate hikes will be much more gradual.

Not surprisingly, the S&P responded by rocketing higher after the Fed statement was released.

We’ll look to enter a new trade later this week now that the Fed uncertainty is behind us. 

Let’s move onto the updates…
