Stocks have completely erased their early gains.

Currently, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is testifying before the Senate banking committee.  According to his prepared remarks, is looks like he’s maintaining his dovish slant.  But during the Q& A, Fed-watchers will be looking for any clues on how the Fed plans to unwind easy monetary policy and allow interest rates to rise again.

Here’s TD Securities Eric Green on Bernanke’s remarks:

Bernanke is staying on message. He mentions that the Fed has the tools for exit and that distortions may arise from QE, but that is merely stating the obvious within a policy that few, including Bernanke, fully understand.
