5 things to know before the stock market opens Wednesday

Here are the most important news, trends and analysis that investors need to start their trading day:. 1. Wall Street looks steady ahead of expected Fed pivot.

Dow industrials pop up and stock market tries to clamber higher, even as Fed projections point to 3 rate hikes in 2022

U.S. stock benchmarks on Wednesday afternoon were pivoting modestly higher as the Federal Reserve held interest rates steady, as expected, but quickened the pace of wind-down of its bond-buying program, opening the door to interest-rate increases in the first half of 2022. Projections from the Fed point to three rate increases next year, with the current fed-funds rate at a range between 0% and 0.25%. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will host a news conference at 2:30 p.m. ET to discuss the central bank's updated policy. The move to end the stimulus program sooner than officials planned at their meeting last...

Is Now Really the Time to Be Buying Stocks?

The market may keep rising for another year or more. There are always undervalued stocks. When the market crashes, bargains abound. The stock market, as measured by the S&P 500, has been on a tear in recent years, up 21.8% in 2017, 31.5% in 2019, 18.4% in 2020, and 27.2% as of this writing in 2021. (There was one down year, 2018, when the index slipped -- but only by 4.4%.) The S&P 500 averages about 10% annual growth over long periods, so these are clearly bullish years.
