However, it appears that, these too have been factored in by savvy investors. Investors also appear to have made a decision that the risk from the pending decision by the FED to raise short term interest rates could be manageable.

In June 2014, the US Economy has added, according to the government, 288,000 jobs. This means that, since the beginning of the year, that is in the first 6 months of 2014,  the US Economy has added more than 1.4 million. And that uptake in jobs is by far the strongest  growth in the last decade. 

Unemployment has amazingly stayed at 6.1% over the last few months, the levels that would satisfy even the most pessimistic economists: 6.1% has long been considered the threshold for  the US Economy to be considered full employment.

AroniSmartInvest™ In Action Points to  Signs of Markets Recovery and Strengthening.
