But they also have been conditioned over the past several years to expect whenever the market enters into any sustained period of volatility that the Fed will come rushing back in with more stimulus. This leads to the following conflict for some investors, which is that they may be inclined to lighten up on their stock allocation but are reluctant to do so amid the worry that the Fed will begin talking up a new stimulus program that will propel stocks to new heights.
