6:39 am

6:44 am
radio's financial reporter jason brooks. >> lrnd 11:30 our time you can possibly see the stock market make a sharp turn depending on what the federal reserve says. expectations are that the fed will raise rates for a fourth time in 2018 at this meeting. all of the odds of that have steadily dropped along with the stock market. the key for investors is what the fed says about its future path of rate hikes and many in the market are hoping that the fed cools that pace down as the stock market has been staggered into correction territory. again, that announcement comes down at 11:00 a.m. pacific. a lot of cautious training on wall street ahead of that announcement. facebook shares are also on its latest scandal, this time for fighting other tech firms. more access to user data than had been disclosed. right now not a big reaction.
