19 Jun Stocks are higher
Stocks are higher this morning with a move that appears to be on speculation of what the Fed might say tomorrow.

Unless there is some surprise announcement, price movement will likely be limited until tomorrow. Locking is hard to argue with at these levels, which we will suggest on short term transactions. We will be closely monitoring the Fed announcement tomorrow. Should QE3 be announced, look for the stock market to turn higher.
