Bond prices (TLT -0.7%) slip following the more upbeat assessment of the economy from the FOMC. Higher growth and lower unemployment projections spell maybe a quicker schedule for tapering and eventual tightening, but materially lower inflation expectations say the opposite. Stocks give up a bit of ground as well, the S&P 500 (SPY -0.3%). The dollar (UUP +0.3%) pops higher across the board.

    More upbeat assessment of the economy? For the Fed, that means big busn takes more money from Americans.
    Watch out!! Do not trust the Fed.

    Bond prices fall, bond yields rise and mortgage interest rates drop. Still want to re-finance. Not too worried that I missed the boat.
