Federal Reserve is raising interest rates
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.
