NASDAQ Weekly Market Pulse

ADVISORY, Dec. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Last week's report on November's U.S. Non-farm Payrolls beat expectations, giving U.S. stocks a short-term boost during the first week of December; however, stocks have given back most of their gains this week. The November unemployment rate dropped to its lowest level since 2008 at 7.0%. The ongoing debate about Fed tapering expectations continues to dominate conversations, but does not appear to be driving stocks in any particular direction.

"Investors are no longer wondering if the Fed will taper, it's now a matter of when," said David Gedeon, Managing Director of NASDAQ OMX Global Information Services. "The recent upbeat jobs report might give Fed officials more confidence that the markets are ready for tapering to begin."
