Federal Reserve is raising interest rates

New BY James Rickards POSTED 14 hours ago

You are well aware that the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates. This policy started in December 2015 with Janet Yellen’s ‘lift-off’ from zero and has continued through seven more rate hikes in 2016, 2017 and 2018, with another hike expected this December. The cumulative impact is to put the high end of the range for the fed funds rate at 2.5% by year-end. More of the same is widely anticipated for 2019.
