FederalReserve.gov is a website brought to you by none other than, of course, the Federal Reserve. Although it’s an organization that we’re all familiar with, many overlook the resources that are offered on their website. Having a reliable source on financial topics is essential, especially in a time where the market is so concerned about the Fed’s asset-purchasing program. The website tells you about the Federal Reserve and introduces the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
A tab titled News & Events includes features accompanied by speeches and testimonies. This is an important resource because there are often articles on market websites mentioning the Federal Reserve’s activity and their recent speeches, and the market reacts accordingly. By having access to the speeches given by the Board of Governors, investors can make their own informed judgments about what the speech entails.
