A September to Remember? More like a September that investors would like to forget! Stocks got rocked again yesterday, leaving the S&P 500 down almost 4% on the month now.
Stocks didn’t like the Federal Reserve news late yesterday, and they don’t like it again this morning. More on that in a minute. Gold and silver are also down notably, while crude oil has slipped back below $90 a barrel. Treasuries are lower, while the dollar is higher.
The early action on “Fed Days” like this one doesn’t matter much, since it’s likely to change once we get the news later. But for now, stocks and Treasuries are modestly higher while crude oil is giving back a bit of its recent gains. The dollar, gold, and silver are flattish.
Stocks finished flat yesterday...and they’re starting off flat today. Gold and silver are up just a tad, while the dollar and Treasuries are lower. Crude oil is the real show-stealer, however, rising in the early going (again).

Homer would have you believe there is no third way. That you can't navigate your way past them without sacrifice. But was he wrong? MoneyShow Editor-in-Chief Mike Larson will share his thoughts—and recommendations—for investors in this presentation.
