Clarksville, TN – Fed tapering concerns continued to dominate the stock market action. The minutes of the July 30th-31st Federal Open Market Committee meeting provided little clarification.
Officials noted that the unemployment rate had fallen “considerably” since last fall (when QE3 began), with “solid” gains in nonfarm payrolls in recent months, but other measures of labor force utilization suggested “more modest” improvement.
From the minutes: “A few members emphasized the importance of being patient and evaluating additional information on the economy before deciding on any changes to the pace of asset purchases. At the same time, a few others pointed to the contingent plan that had been articulated on behalf of the Committee the previous month, and suggested that it might soon be time to slow somewhat the pace of purchases as outlined in that plan.”

The Tennessee offense started slow on their first two possessions before Jake Locker but together a 5 play scoring drive capped by a 7 yard pass to Nate Washington in the back of the end zone. This got the Titans going and they never let off the gas going on to beat the Falcons 27-16.
