Jerome Powell and FOMC On Deck to Raise Rates … They Really want the Economy to Slow …

To a man with a Hammer, everything looks like a nail…. or something like that…

Insert Interest rates for the Hammer!

Today the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) led by Jerome Powell will in all likelihood use their Hammer, raising rates… a 20 year chart below, to a 20 year high!

While mentioned frequently, we ARE fans of higher rates, but this has been a very fast move over a very short period of time… and certain portions of the Capital Markets/Stocks are acting as if rates are being lowered, ignoring these increases…

The future expectations/rhetoric of rate increases will be watched closely…..

Let’s give this some time to sink in boys!

Have a Great “Fed Rate Increase” Day!
