Financial Shares Move Higher Ahead of Fed Meeting Next Week -- Financials Roundup

06/11/2021 | 05:10pm EDT

Shares of banks and other lenders and money managers moved higher with investors looking ahead to next week's meeting of Federal Reserve policy makers.

"There's probably some chance, with the Fed meeting next week, of a bit more of a 'let's-see-what-they-have-to-say' type of approach," said Jim Baird, chief investment officer of Plante Moran Financial Advisors. The big question is whether policy makers will come forward with details about their thinking around an eventual tapering of the Fed's bond-buying program, offering investors "more of a peek behind the curtain," he said.

A multipronged bet on AMC Entertainment boomeranged this month on Mudrick Capital Management, the latest hedge fund to fall victim to swarming day traders. Mudrick's flagship fund lost 10% in just a few days as a jump in AMC's stock price unexpectedly triggered changes in the value of derivatives the fund held as part of a complex trading strategy, people familiar with the matter said.
