The following video is from Wednesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Bryan White and Matthew Argersinger take a sharp look at some of the biggest investing stories of the day.
At 2 this afternoon, the Federal Reserve announced that economic conditions were still too weak and that it would be continuing its quantitative easing program, buying $85 billion in bonds each month. Previous announcements this year that QE would be continuing saw the market rise, but today's announcement resulted in a market pullback on the news. In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Matt and Bryan discuss why the market might not have liked the news this time and when they would like to see quantitative easing come to an end.
