Despite Yellen’s hawkish tone, market participants clung to dovish hopes in her words… but Stan Fischer just clarified “Yellen’s comments are consistent with a possible September hike” and that has spoiled th eparty in stocks, bonds, gold, and the dollar…

Fischer explains…

*FISCHER: I DON’T THINK FED IS BEHIND THE CURVE
*FISCHER: ECONOMIC PICTURE IS VERY COMPLEX
*FISCHER: YELLEN’S COMMENTS CONSISTENT WITH POSSIBLE SEPT. HIKE
*FISCHER: BIG ISSUES IN GROWTH ARE INVESTMENT, PRODUCTIVITY
*FISCHER: ON EMPLOYMENT, WE’RE DOING WELL
*FISCHER: FED IS RESOLUTELY NOT A POLITICAL BODY

*FISCHER: WE AREN’T ELECTION FORECASTERS; LOOK AT ECO. SIGNALS
*FISCHER: IN FOMC MEETINGS WE DO DISCUSS SUBGROUPS OF EMPLOYMENT
*FISCHER: NOT TOO CONCERNED ABOUT ASSET BUBBLES NOW

And the market reacts…
