Beige Book Report: Current Conditions Do Not Support Dec/16 Rate Hike

This summary of today's release of the FOMC Beige Book Report (courtesy of Nasdaq.com) is hinting that current soft economic conditions may not be supportive of an FOMC rate hike in December.

We'll see what current (and any anticipatory) factors may have been considered that would warrant a rate hike, if one is, in fact, implemented...hopefully, they will be clearly spelled out in Ms. Yellen's 2:30 pm press conference that will follow the Fed's rate announcement on December 14th.
