Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 17th, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – As expected, the Fed raised short-term interest rates for the third time in 2017 (market participants were more focused on the progress of tax legislation).

The dots in the dot plot did not shift much from where they were in September and were all over the place for the end of 2018 and 2019 – meaning that there is no clear consensus on the pace of policy action (and bear in mind that personnel changes mean that many of these dots will be replaced in 2018).

Gen. Doug Gabram said the annual meeting is a one-of-a-kind event that other Army branches are trying to emulate.

“We are one team, one fight,” Gabram told the aviators, who travelled from units around the world to attend the two-day AMCOM 101 for Aviation at Redstone Arsenal. “No other branch has this kind of event. It’s something that benefits the aviation branch and the Army.”

AMCOM 101 for Aviation brings together aviators from across the Army aviation enterprise to learn about the sustainment capabilities of AMCOM, and to discuss aviation challenges and solutions.

Brig Gen. Todd Royar, deputy commander for support of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell, KY, encourages aviators attending the Aviation and Missile Command's AMCOM 101 for Aviation to ensure readiness of their units by providing concerns to their higher command. Royar served as AMCOM's chief of staff prior to his promotion and assignment to the 101st in the spring of 2017. (Traci Boutwell)
