  • Wall Street traded lower into the Wednesday close, reversing initial strength as markets weighed Powell's inclusion of the option of a 50bps rate hike as part of the current tightening cycle. By acknowledging the stark difference between this economic expansion cycle and the last, markets were unsettled by the notion of a sharp beginning to rate rises, helping the e-mini S&P ease back below unchanged and drop around 150 points over the course of Powell's presser.
