Stocks Steady Ahead Of Fed Leadership Decision – Bitcoin Tumbles Toward $60,000

U.S. stock futures were steady on Tuesday as investors were relieved to see some positive news coming from retail sector earnings.

Walmart raised its forecast, saying it is prepared for the holiday season with fully stocked shelves. Home Depot, meanwhile, saw a 9.8% increase in sales as consumers continued improvement their homes.

Amid this stronger-than-expect retail environment, many investors are questioning whether there will be changes at the head of the Federal Reserve. Fed Governor Lael Brainard is viewed as the successor to Chairman Jay Powell.

Markets expect Brainard to continue the liquidity bonanza. In just one year, the M2 money supply increased by a whopping 26%, the largest increase since WW2.
