Wall Street Rallies as Stocks Gain on Less Hawkish Yellen

Michael Teague |

Wall Street rallied early in Monday’s session, and maintained gains consistently throughout trading, with all indices once again approaching intraday highs to end the first quarter of 2014. Investors looking to make purchases found some support from Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s who sounded somewhat less hawkish on Treasury spending in comments to the effect that there was still room for the central bank to help bring the US economy up to a more durable form of recovery.
