April 25, 2011  Bloomberg article: Federal Reserve officials are staking their inflation-fighting credibility on an untested tool: the power to pay interest on bank reserves."Fed Officials Count on Untested Tool to Hold Off Inflation

April 25, 2011  Reuters Business article: Commodities crunch worsens for consumers and companies " The most important thing is pricing power," said Luke Rahbari, a partner with options trading firm Stutland Volatility Group. "Can they raise prices and still have the same number of sales, and if they raise prices, will they lose market share?" But with consumers also feeling the pressure of gasoline near $4 a gallon, investors will be watching earnings reports to see if those price increases are driving away customers. The avg US household will pay $825 more for gas this year than in 2010.
The biggest percentage drop in quarterly revenue in three years, driven by lower lending and reduced fees, is damping investor appetite for shares of the six largest U.S. banks.

April 27, 2:30 pm - Fed Chairman Bernanke recently began his press conference.

For 2012, GDP is now expected to grow between 3.5% and 4.2% after it had been forecasted to grow between 3.5% and 4.4%. For 2013, GDP is expected to grow between 3.5% and 4.3% after it had been forecasted to grow between 3.5% and 4.6%. Long-run growth is now expected to range from 2.5% to 2.8%, versus the range of 2.4% to 3.0% that had been issued previously.  While GDP growth is expected to moderate, the Fed now expects that unemployment in 2011 will be between 8.4% and 8.7%, which is down from the range of 8.8% to 9.0% that had been previously estimated.

More of the Same / 03-Oct-11 08:10 ET - Market is Closed
[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: -0.40. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -9.50. In the final session of September, stocks suffered another loss, which only added to their poor monthly performance and their worst quarterly showing in almost three years. Yet the same crucial themes that weighed on sentiment in recent months continue into the new quarter. More directly, underwhelming data from Europe and news that Greece will come short of its deficit target for 2011 have taken Europe's bourses down sharply and, by extension, put pressure on domestic stock futures. That said, premarket pressure hasn't been too intense. There are a couple of noteworthy releases on tap for today.
