Investors Speculate About Fed Meeting

Main content

U.S. stock markets posted their first weekly decline in six weeks, as investors fretted over the possibility that the Federal Reserve could adopt a more hawkish tone at its policy meeting September 16-17. Generally positive economic reports in the United States provided a little counterweight. The ten-year U.S. Treasury yield rose to 2.61% and the U.S. dollar gained against the euro and yen. Gold, oil and other commodities also fell for the week.
