Markets: Ben and Glenn, market buoys

It looks like Ben Bernanke and Glenn Stevens will be able to hold on to investors' love for a little bit longer.

Australian investors could be forgiven for sending Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke and the nine members of the Federal Open Market Committee that sided with him in a meeting last month a dozen roses. The Fed's minutes for the meeting, released overnight, showed the central bank's bond-buying would continue, alleviating the worst of market fears. Investors may also want to start preparing a suitable bouquet of waratah for Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens and his monetary policy committee if they decide next month to trim the cash rate further.
