How the Markets Look Post the Fed Announcement

Here we are at the end of the week, post a Fed Rate hike that has been 3 plus years in the making.

The markets traded the last couple of hours (Wed.) in a roller coaster fashion but closed near or at its highs for that day. The following day, Thursday saw continued bullishness with the markets closing again at or near their highs for that day.

Fed Chair Powell said there are more rate hikes to come and eventually we will get an announcement of when they start reducing their balance sheet. We are still down on the major averages for the year, but for now it seems things are at least making an upturn in pricing.

Here is the Money Calendar image for this week where we will look into patterns with a start date of today for the Money Calendar Friday trade(s).
