My Top ETF as the Market Rallies off Wednesday’s Fed Meeting

by | Dec 16, 2021 | Market Updates

All major indices are up as the markets turn bullish following Wednesday’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.

The Federal Reserve revealed its plan to raise interest rates three times next year in an effort to tackle rising inflation.

Wall Street seemed pleased with the news because the S&P 500, Nasdaq and Dow all closed higher on Wednesday following the announcement.

The Fed also increased its outlook on inflation, reduced its forecast for economic growth and called for an improved jobs market.

However, it did note that COVID-19 still poses a risk to its future outlook, especially as new variants emerge.

On that note, Regeneron is working on a new COVID-19 treatment designed specifically to combat all known variants, including delta and omicron.  

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn the likely scenario for volatility levels… whether put buyers are overpowering call buyers… the probable direction for the major indices … two sectors I’m warning everyone about… which ETF is set to roar in 2022… an update on the global economy and new COVID-19 hotspots… and the top option pick complete with strike price.
