Wall Street jumped to an all-time high yesterday, after the Federal Reserve Bank announced that it would start a gradual reduction of its bond buying program.

Robert Johnson, director of economic analysis at the independent investment research firm Morningstar, joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss what this means for investors and interest rates, as well as homeowners and the housing market.
