Expect more choppiness ahead after a week of mixed market signals

The most important thing, perhaps, is the statement from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell at The Brookings Institute, in which he indicated that the pace of interest rate hikes could slow down as soon as December – although he expected the policy to remain limited for some time; the Fed “will stay the course until the job is done,” he said.
