Unintentional Investment Advice from the Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve

A Case of Goldilocks' Fever?

Earlier this week the Chairwoman of the US Federal Reserve System spoke at The British Academy President's lecture.

She was asked about the possibility of a new financial crisis, according to Reuters.

"Would I say there will never, ever be another financial crisis?" Yellen said at a question-and-answer event in London.

"You know probably that would be going too far but I do think we're much safer and I hope that it will not be in our lifetimes and I don't believe it will be," she said.

It's either a case of inadvertent investment advice or perhaps an indirect disclosure of health problems.

More likely the former. 

So it's an appropriate time to adjust your investment criteria to the side of more caution, if you haven't already given the new Administration in Washington..
