Markets on Wednesday March 20 were led lower by financial stocks that pulled back after Fed Chair Powell announced no interest rate hike and indicated there would be no further rate hikes in 2019. Treasury yields fell which prompted investors to sell out of bank stocks. Utility stocks rose which included the Utilities Select Sector SPDR® ETF (XLU) which back on March 14 had hit a new 52 week high.
Stocks initially rallied strongly on the news of no Fed rate increases and turned positive, but then gave back the rally and closed negative on the day.
