"Markets have done a lot of waiting as the Fed continues to release tidbits of information on the future of the bond purchasing program," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director of U.S. Global Indexes. "After the Fed meets and if it declares a path forward on QE, the market will get to turn to earnings and economic estimates to guide the market forward for the first time in years."
