How interest rates played a big part in the market swoon

8 hours ago

(U.S. Edition) The Dow’s roughly 1400-point drop this week seemed to have a ripple effect across the global markets as well, but now things appear to have settled down as of Friday morning. We talk to Barry Ritholtz of Ritholtz Wealth Management on how to deal with this kind of activity day-to-day. Then we check in with columnist and ProPublica editor Allan Sloan about the role of interest rates in the ongoing tale of President Trump and his blaming of the Federal Reserve for the market issues this week. Today’s show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group, (gaincapital.com), LinkedIn (linkedin.com) and Selligent (selligent.com). (10/12/2018)
