- Summary: HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES (SEPTEMBER 17, 2021) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (English) MERCADIEN ASSET MANAGEMENT, PRESIDENT, KEN KAMEN, SAYING: "Actually, I'm surprised the market's been doing as well as it's been doing, even though the market's been coming off a little bit here with all the noise coming out of Washington. We're worried about what the Fed's going to do next week. I mean, all eyes have to be on Washington next week, and that tends to make very nervous investors jumpy with pulling the trigger on profit-taking. So, I think the market's actually doing pretty well here."
