Jones industrial average on November 14th finished at $ 18868.69, which was $ 21.03(0.1%)higher than that on November 11th. The momentum of the rise in Jones industrial average weakened a little due to selling adjustment. As expected, the decline of the crude oil price (WTI crude futures price) called for the selling adjustment.

Next investor’s attention is on interest rate hike in December.
In this week, I guess that Jones industrial average will slightly fluctuate, because news about the interest rate hike in December might be reported. Let’s check the weekly investment schedule frequently. Some lectures and a congressional testimony by FRB top officials are scheduled.
Nonetheless, the expectation that the interest rate hike will be determined at the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) on December 13 and 14 has been already included into the world market. Even if FRB top officials imply the interest rate hike in December, the impact to the world market is considered to be limited.
