The Fed will decide on Wednesday whether, and by how much, it will increase the rate at which it pumps cash through Primary Dealer trading accounts. What it decides will have an impact on how fast stocks are likely to advance, and how soon that advance will end.

That could include a reversal in Treasuries (see Treasury update). Meanwhile stocks would probably resume their rally after some instability.
