The important things include: Earnings, gross domestic product and interest rates, adding that he expects Fed Chairman Powell to make clear in his testimony that the “central bankers aren’t inclined to cut rates any time soon, surely not in December.”
Solid advice to investors listening for news from the impeachment hearings is to “filter out the noise, which will be deafening,” and this “spoiler alert: The Senate will acquit.”
