Reader Poll: Could Rate Cut Spark Sell-Off?


Here's our latest Reader Poll.

Paul H. writes, "Will the next rate cut from the FED cause a market bounce, or a market dip??"

"Here is why I am asking: Over the years, I have observed that when the FED gets into rate cutting mode, the first cut typically sets off a strong rally. The second cut - usually more of the same. The third cut - often not. In many cases, the market sells of when the FED has to cut a third or fourth time."

-- Paul H.

Readers - what do you think???? If the Fed cuts on December 11th could the move actually spark a sell-off?
