The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 17th, 2012

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

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

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesAs expected, the Federal Open Market Committee decided to fold purchases of $45 billion per month in long-term Treasuries into QE3 when Operation Twist ends later this year (in Operation twist, the Fed is buying $45 billion per month in long-term Treasuries and selling a similar amount of shorter-term Treasuries out of its portfolio). Thus, the Fed will continue buying $85 billion in long-term assets in 2013 ($45 billion in Treasuries, $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities), with no specified ending date, until there is “substantial improvement” in labor market conditions.

The Fed also shifted the language in its forward guidance on the overnight lending rate from dates to economic thresholds. Specifically, the Fed “currently anticipates that the exceptionally low range for the federal funds rate will be appropriate at least as long as the unemployment rate remains above 6.5%, inflation between one and two years ahead is projected to be no more than a half percentage point above the Committee’s 2% longer-run goal, and longer-term inflation expectations continue to be well anchored.” «Read the rest of this article»

Wreaths Across AmericaArlington National Cemetery, VA – As thousands of volunteers fanned out here this weekend, placing holiday wreaths at the white headstones as part of the “Wreaths Across America” tribute, Sheila Patton kept vigil at one particular grave site.

Patton and her daughter stationed themselves at the grave of their son and brother, Army Staff Sgt. James R. Patton. Twenty-three-year-old “Jimmy” was serving his seventh overseas deployment since 9/11 with the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, when he was killed in a helicopter crash in Tikrit, Iraq, on April 18th, 2010.

Patton said she travels here from Fort Campbell, KY, as often as possible. Patton felt a special calling, she said, to participate in the largest single venue of the nationwide “Wreaths Across America” tribute.

“This was something very important to me,” she said. “I really wanted to be here, to be a part of all this, and to be able to honor Jimmy and all the others who are buried here.” «Read the rest of this article»
