The Federal Reserve surprised the markets yesterday by keeping its $85 billion asset purchase program in place and investors greeted the news, sending stocks to record highs and bond yields sharply lower.  

While the rally has paused today, most investors are confused about the future direction of the Fed’s policy.

Has the QE decision affected your short-term investment strategy?  What is your plan after the no-taper surprise?

A)   The stock market rally will be short-lived as no tapering apparently means that the economy is not strong enough. It is time to take advantage of the rally and book some profits.
 
B)   The stock market is back in “bad news is good news” mode with QE-infinity in place and stocks will continue to be the best game in town. Time to buy more stocks.
 
C)   There is too much uncertainty in the market. It is safer to stay sway till there is more visibility on the debt debate and the health of the economy.
