01 June 2021

The Fed's minions worked overtime early last week to convince investors the surge of inflation confronting U.S. consumers won't cause them to prematurely take away their proverbial stimulus bond-buying punch bowl.

That was enough to prompt investors to bid up the value of the S&P 500 (Index: SPX) up toward the 4,200 level.

There was more stuff that happened in the past week, but as you'll read in the summary of market moving headlines below, that description that the Fed has started talking about talking about tapering its stimulus bond buys pretty much summarizes all the U.S. stock market's action ahead of the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
