At the closing bell, here is how the major indices ended the session: the DOW (Dow Jones Industrial Average) moved lower by 2.93 points to end the session at 13,539.95; the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) gained 3.50 points to end at 9,900.96; the NASDAQ posted a gain of 9.23 points today for a close at 2,588.02; the S&P 500 moved lower by 0.98 points to end at 1,524.12 and the RUSSELL 2000 moved higher by 6.27 points to close at 839.92.

President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Jeffrey Lacker commented today: Worried Inflation Expectations Will Rise; Economy Can Handle Higher Gas Prices; Not Clear If Housing Demand Bottomed; Strong Liquidity Lowered Market Rates; Core U.S. inflation is still too high and holding interest rates steady for a prolonged period may not be enough to get it down; “The current funds rate has us on track, What it needs to do later this year is a tougher question. So, if you ask me if holding this funds rate constant for the next two years (is) going to get us there, my guess is not.”; "Core inflation has been fluctuating between 2 and 2-1/2 percent for two years since April 2004. From 1996 until 2003, core inflation went between 1 and 2 percent. We need to get back to containing core inflation between 1 and 2 percent."; “Core inflation strips out volatile food and energy prices to yield a more reliable measure underlying price pressures." and “The fact that inflation expectations seem to have risen as inflation has risen and seem to be lodged around 2 percent, gives me a lot of concern."

FOMC Board Member, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago Michael H.
