Since we have been positive on what the market is deeming to be “Trump Sectors” all year, we are growing increasingly worried about the “too much too soon phenomenon.”
Federal Reserve policymakers keep their key interest rate steady, putting the central bank on the sidelines until after Election Day.
The Federal Reserve isn’t expected to hike rates tomorrow, but Brett Ewing, Chief Market Strategist at First Franklin Financial Services says that he sees the Fed raising rates in December if Hillary Clinton wins the U.S. election.

After today’s ISM Manufacturing Index showed a surprise contraction in August, we feel this is just the thing the Fed needs to continue to explain the hold they will decide on in September

This is a smart tactic to push expectations on something most in that room don’t want to do until they are entirely sure of a stable world situation. Expect more of the same until after the election.
The September meeting rate hike has undoubtedly been put back on the table because of the impressive labor results, but we continue to feel that the Fed will postpone a rise in the funds rate,”
