The stock market remains volatile this week, but the fluctuations are caused less by news from the Federal Reserve and more by concerns about U.S. actions in Syria. Jeffrey Gundlach, CEO and chief investment officer of DoubleLine Capital, says investors have less tolerance for volatility than last summer and that the Fed’s actions could push the yield on 10-year Treasury notes to 3% by this year’s end. The firm growth in the U.S. economy is contributing to a rise in demand worldwide. Reuters describes evidence that advanced economies are seeing expansion, as Eurozone businesses just had their best month in over two years.

Stocks Gyrate On Syria Suspense– Not too long ago, stocks traded up or down based on the answer to one question: Will the Fed taper or not?

Rising Demand Adds To Evidence World Growth Is Picking Up– Led by firm U.S. growth, the outlook is gradually improving for advanced economies and even crisis-weary Europe is at last joining the recovery, the OECD said on Tuesday. It warned, however, that a slowdown in many emerging economies meant global growth would remain sluggish. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/09/04/us-global-economy-idUSBRE9830FH20130904
