The Big Picture:
Janet Yellen has spoken and the Fed has decided. Rates were not raised. I n Janet Yellen´s following press conference the most „perfect“ financial scenario was described. On one hand the US economy is strong, on the other hand not strong enough for a rate increase. These were the words which investors wanted to hear and markets rose strongly. The decision by the open market committee to not raise rates, was not unilateral. This is unusual for the Fed, three members voted for a raise and 7 against. The fact that economic growth is supported by the consumer is of interest. Corporate investment is still too low, which spoils the picture.
