it's always a treat ... the markets have been wringing their hands over the prospective rate increase, it comes, and the market goes up. go figure.

I think the main reason was the fed did something the market expected. Had they raised to .5 I dont think it would have been so pretty.

Which means the Fed can probably rinse and repeat another few times before the market tires of this dance.

there's something perverse going on.* as indicated by fed.funds.futures, the markets clearly expected today's move, and as such it should have had no discernable effect.* there might, however, be some "relief" being expressed that the fed did act as expected. (but had there been wide-held suspicions otherwise, the expected would not have been expected. )* we were previously told that today's move would depend on the data; we are told once again that future moves would depend on the data; we're all looking at the same data; where's the surprise?

I think the "market" is anxious for many reasons, but as it pertains to the FRB, it probably think rates will go too high, and stifle growth; i.e recession...

It's called short covering! There was too much (near term) pessimism out there.
