Wall Street pares revenues after Fed minutes
On Thursday, American equities pared profits a bit following the publication of minutes from the Fed’s June gathering, although they were still in positive territory.
Evidently, the minutes reflected confidence of the Fed’s policymakers in the strength of the American economy as well as its plans for future interest-rate lifts. In the June gathering, the key US financial institution had rates lifted for the second time in 2018, and it has clearly indicated that extra lifts are probable.
