Capital Market Review as of December 31, 2023

What a quarter to end the year!  The Fed gave the capital markets what they wanted to hear – not only did they hold the Fed funds rate steady at 5.25-5.50%, but they announced that the policy rate is projected to be 4.6% by the end of 2024.  Stocks and bonds staged impressive rallies.  The Q4 rally provided bonds with a good year and stocks with a great year.  The Fed still has work to do as it tries to engineer a soft landing.  We expect 2024, like every year, will provide its own unique challenges and opportunities.
