September 20, 2017– September central bank meeting results in keeping rates unchanged and providing details and start date of the unwinding of Fed balance sheet.

“The announcement was pretty much as expected. Providing details of the specific amounts of asset sales was important. The transparency of this Fed and creating a “no surprises” environment gives market participants confidence in them. No surprises and a clear path forward are good for our capital markets” – Dan Moskowitz, President - Chatham Wealth Management
