Week Ahead Magazine: February 23, 2014

With the Sochi Winter Olympics coming to an end, sports enthusiasts can now begin to focus on college basketball's March Madness.  For investors though, last week's holiday shortened trading saw the S&P 500 Index close down fractionally. This felt like a win after January's market decline and subsequent rebound in February. All eyes continue to be on the Fed as they continue to taper QE activities. One article link in the magazine looks at the fact the Fed purchased over 70% of the net issuance of Treasury securities in 2013. One question that arises is who will become the new buyers of these Treasury securities as the Fed reduces its QE. Below is the link to this week's magazine with articles investors may find of interest in the week ahead.
