Investors are going to want to hear what he has to say, and whether he's changing his tone.
It's just a psychological barrier. It'll create some excitement but... it doesn't mean that much. The market is high. We need a good earnings season. If that doesn't happen, you could see a pullback sooner rather than later.

The first couple of days of the year set the direction for the market. I don't see anything interfering here. I think enthusiasm is still there.
In spite of a strong dollar, today might just be the day we touch Dow 20,000. I think that'll be based on the fact that oil prices could make a stab toward $55.
We're looking at a higher opening today but the lack of any major economic news and the fact that market shrugged off Monday's events means stocks will drift in an upwards trend.
This market has gone up without taking a breather and will enter a cautious trading day as it awaits the Fed.

We got some pretty strong durable goods orders. I think this is an indication of corporations stepping up, and that's an indication of higher economic performance.
I think oil, and commodities in general, are leading the way for stocks.
This is a Trump rally. On Election Day, institutional investors got caught on the wrong side, and you've seen them make major portfolio switches. The industrials and financials have led the rally in the Dow, and that has been due to [the possibility of] higher-growth policies.
While there is no question that the market's fundamentals remain precarious, we see the latest decline as overdone and a reason to believe the market is forcing OPEC to strike a deal at the end of this month.
What's happening here is the Fed is still expected to move this year and yields and the dollar are moving higher.
If this race turns out to be closer than what the polls are indicating right now, the chances of a contested election are high. That means the saga of this election does not end tomorrow.

It's also a jittery market ahead of the elections and of course the prospects of a rate hike in December.

If we get a production cut, even if it's small, or even a production freeze, that's the best news we've gotten over the past two years.
The polls have both candidates neck-to-neck. The debates might increase the lead of one over the other and that's what the market is fearful of.
I think the real question over the next several weeks, as we get the next batch of data, will be whether December will be a rate hike of 50 basis points.

Japan sent a powerful message to the market. So, the rally continues.
I think what we're seeing is the successful election for [Shinzo] Abe ... is fueling the rally here. Basically, it's a post-labor report rally helped by the elections in Japan.
In terms of economic growth ahead, we're looking at a possible recession in Great Britain, stagnate growth in Europe and less growth in the States. The world is going to be in for a long period of low interest rates. If it gets too rough there's a possibility that the U.S. Fed may have to take us back down to zero interest rates.
The markets are the best judge of what is going to happen and they are saying that Britain will remain. The key is the strong jump in the pound.
This week's economic news was not all that bad but certainly it doesn't point to the economy exploding to the upside anytime soon.

Focus remains on the Fed's next move and as you take a look at all the economic indicators we got last week, it certainly suggests that the economy is improving.

I think the Fed (speakers) are basically just comforting to the market.
The central theme of the day will be the Fed and whether or not there's been an increase in the Fed members deviating from the Yellen team. I think the early part of the session we'll move up a little and follow the price of oil.
The real reason for the market coming down in the last couple of days is the Fed rhetoric. Certainly the comments out of Bullard and some of the others indicates we're getting closer to a rate hike.

I think it will be all about earnings and maybe this time earnings can trump oil if it's moving higher.

I don't think that the rest of the market is headed for a bear market, but certainly there's a bear grip that could take us down another 3-4 percent in the S&P 500.
The focus remains on oil and the impact of low oil prices, which points to slowing growth and possibly, even stagnant to negative growth here in the United States.
I think that an element of this is short covering and besides energy, some of the comments out of Fed speakers, especially Bullard, are saying (inflation could be pressured by low oil).
It's all about oil. (China) trade data negative but still better than expected. That's a relief for the market in general.
