Media Advisory/Interview Opportunity: Bernanke Speaks-BMO Experts Provide Insights for Fed Speech

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2011) - Investors will be tuned into a speech today by Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board. The speech is entitled "Near- and Long-Term Prospects for the U.S. Economy."

Investors have been waiting to hear what the Fed Chairman will say about the global economic situation and if he signals there is still room for more economic stimulus in the U.S.

In the past few days leading up to the speech, financial markets have been unsteady - the price of gold plunged, but has since climbed back.
