Market Outlook For Tomorrow

Market Outlook For Tomorrow


December 11, 2013, Wednesday, 3:50p ET.:


  Guess it had to happen sooner or later.  Taper talk is building especially now that there is a budget deal.  Models still don't see tapering in December because of the fact that no one knows how bad a stock market sell off could be when tapering begins.


Models expect stronger language next week but still no tapering.  Don't think the Fed wants to step out and taper during this part of the holiday spending period as it is unclear what the markets will do once tapering begins.


A major sell off is possible and models don't see the Fed FOMC taking a big risk on a major stock market sell off that could halt the recovery or at least could damage it if consumers get freaked out on a major downturn in stocks.


Models will trigger the short term forecast to caution prior to the close today.

Indicates short-term U.S. equity market (S&P 500) forecast.
