The article focuses on the arguments raised by U.S. Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell against investors' uncertainty on when the agency will start tapering its quantitative easing program during his speech at the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington in June 2013. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced that they might still taper its 85 billion dollar monthly asset buys in 2013, which resulted in the fall in the Standard & Poor (S&P) 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average.
