Meeting minutes from the U.S. Federal Reserve signaled stimulus tapering will most likely continue in measured steps, while the International Monetary Fund urged caution regarding risks to worldwide growth. As a result, the U.S. dollar rose today, and stocks and treasuries fell. ???So far tapering seems to be orderly and they [the Fed] seem to be committed to it,??? Erik Davidson, the San Francisco-based deputy chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank, said. ???While it is data-dependent, it is long-term data dependent, certainly not short-term, noise data-dependent. Investors should recognize that this is the beginning of a very very very long process.???
