What Is The Fed Going To Do Next?

Recommended Posts

They only raised them to keep some credibility and wriggle room in case cuts are needed when the junk bond market finished imploding in 6 months time.

The only group that should be worried are the UK government and it's financial recipients.

Bear in mind that the effect of a base rate rise normally only starts to show through in the economy's statistics some months after it's announced. So the next moves could be gradually increasing interest rates until the point that the effect of the first rise shows through and then they might have to suddenly back track.

On that basis it would be one - followed in a few months by three. They could have nearly 0.75% wriggle room to reduce the rate by the time they decide to back track.

None of it will work as they haven't the faintest clue what they're doing - apart from lining their own pockets.
