A patiently impatient U.S. Federal Reserve

In this week’s market update:

  • What does U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Yellen’s latest statement mean for investors?
  • Why should investors keep a particularly close eye on the U.S. employment rate as a predictor of when the Fed may raise rates?
  • What are the economic factors behind European Central Bank President Draghi’s latest statement about economic recovery?

On this week’s Market Week in Review video, Managing Director Asset Allocation and Portfolio Strategy Adam Goff gives insight into the statement by U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen regarding the economy and interest rates, making particular note of the U.S. unemployment rate as a predictor of when the central bank could raise rates.

Mark Soupiset hosts this week’s market update, which also examines the strong U.S. dollar and its impact on both the Fed decision as well as Europe’s apparently strengthening economy, as noted by ECB President Draghi this week.
