The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of October 30th, 2012

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

The economic data reports were mixed. Real GDP rose at a 2.0% annual rate in 3Q12 (+2.3% y/y), boosted partly by an increase in government spending (the first since 2Q10). The report showed a moderate pace of consumer spending and weakness in business fixed investment. Durable goods rose 9.9%, reflecting a rebound in aircraft orders. However, orders and shipments of nondefense capital goods weakened and unfilled orders (ex-transportation) continued to weaken.

The Federal Open Market Committee left short-term interest rates unchanged, did not alter its forward guidance (on the federal funds target rate), and kept its Large-Scale Asset Purchase program (QE3) in place. At the December 12-13 FOMC meeting, officials are likely to decide whether to extend Operation Twist or up its asset purchase plans. «Read the rest of this article»
