How the fear index's cousin can make or break a stock picker

Diversification is key to maintaining a balanced portfolio–or so the saying goes. Most investors maintain a mix of cash, stocks and bonds to minimize losses and maximize gains.

Wall Street rallies on gradual Fed tightening, improving economy

U.S. stocks rallied on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve announced it is raising its key policy rate for the first time in nearly a decade in a sign of confidence in the U.S. economy. Markets judged the Fed’s statement to be dovish, supportive of risk assets including equities. The Fed made clear that the 25-basis point rate hike was a tentative beginning to a “gradual” tightening cycle, and that in deciding its next move it would put a premium on monitoring inflation, which remains mired below target.

Volatility swept through world markets on Monday with China’s yuan hitting a fresh multi-year year low and oil’s continued travails adding to nervousness before an expected hike in U.S. interest rates later this week. Emerging markets struggled for direction, weighed down by the weakness in China’s currency, Asian stocks and oil, but buffeted by a surge in South African markets after Pravin Gordhan was re-appointed finance minister. The People’s Bank of China on Monday continued guiding its currency lower, setting the yuan/dollar official midpoint at its weakest since July 2011.

Wall Street veterans say rate-hike past is not prologue for markets

It has only been six years since the U.S. stock market rout brought on by the financial crisis, but as far as Deena Katz’s clients are concerned, that might as well be ancient history. “People have a thirty-second memory,” said Katz, 65, co-chairman at Evensky & Katz/Foldes Financial Wealth Management.
