Market Lab Report - Premarket Pulse 2/15/17

Published : February 15 2017 at 9:25 ET

Major averages finished yesterday at all-time highs once again on higher volume though financials led the way with the financials ETF XLF up 1.16%. Futures and European markets are slightly lower overnight. Some digestion of recent gains can be expected.

Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen testified yesterday that the US economy is expected to continue to expand at a moderate pace, which should allow the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates at a gradual pace. At upcoming meetings, Yellen said, the Fed would look at incoming data to see if the labor market continues to strengthen and inflation is moving up to the central bank’s 2% target. If so, “a further adjustment of the federal funds rate would likely be appropriate,” Yellen said.

Economic data out of Australia showed that businesses and consumers are anticipating a rate hike from the Reserve Bank of Australia in the near term. The overall trend toward tighter monetary policy, or at least a slowing of QE from central banks such as the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank seems to be taking hold. This suggests improving global economic conditions ahead.
