Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told the House of Financial Services Committe that he thinks “markets are beginning to understand our message”.
It isn’t a surprise that markets have been volatile since late May when the term “Tapering” took over the media.
Though tapering is on the way (slowing down of Fed stimulus efforts), Bernanke clearly stated that short-term interest rates will stay near zero “for the foreseeable future.”
Currently the Fed is spending $85 Billion/ month in their stimulus measures, that could change later this year, especially if unemployment rates somehow get to 7%.
