When something falls by 2% one day and rallies by 2% the next, it’s still not completely back to where it was. A $100 stock that falls 2% is now worth $98. If that stock then rallies 2%, it’s worth $99.90. Yes, we can argue over 10 cents. But the fact is, it needs to rally slightly more than 2% to be back to $100.  With that said, look at the Industrials and what the Industrial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLI) just did, advises Kenny Polcari, chief market strategist at SlateStone Wealth.

But while I now think that the Fed will pause (not that that means I agree with that decision), I remain in the higher for longer camp with regards to interest rates, explains Kenny Polcari, chief market strategist at SlateStone Wealth.
So, after all the hype, all the analysis, and all the angst – what did the CPI do? Well, it was up. It was up on the top line and it was up when you take out all the volatile elements like food and energy. But the hotter CPI figure did little to rattle investors and they seem good with the notion that the Fed is holding rates steady in September, explains Kenny Polcari, Chief Market Strategist at SlateStone Wealth.
