Will They Or Won't They?

The Federal Reserve will release their minutes from April's FOMC meetings on Wednesday at 2 p.m. The notes should shed some light on whether they are leaning towards raising interest rates or leaving them as is again.

Even though there hasn't been any recent public comments from Fed Chair, Janet Yellen, or Stanely Fischer, several regional Fed presidents have said as recently as last week that a move could be possible in June or July. Keep an eye out as Yellen speaks at Harvard University on May 27th and Fischer delivers remarks Thursday in New York.

What do you think?

  1. Low interest rates do nothing other than put more money in the pockets of the ones that already have it all. It does absolutely nothing for the masses. The last 7 years is documented proof of that unless of course you believe all that crap that the BLS prints each month and then corrects for the next six, unprinted of course.

  2. Raising interest rates at the present time would be insanity. It's true that inflation was rearing its head in April, but that was mostly due to the recovery in oil prices that anyone could see was coming. With zero help from the fiscal side for six years due to a treasonous and obstructionist Congress, the Fed needs to keep interest rates down to keep the economy from tanking.

    1. If the interest rate is raised, it will only be a little miniscul amount.
      Yellen will try to keep the opium in the economy until right after the election.
      Then we will see a change just before Trump takes over.
      This will be to make the economy tank. Then it will take the new administration longer to fix.

  3. What a wonder? not just common people, but even Analysts, Economists and all other related persons or market participants still believe that Fed's Move is significant or has some power or control left to impacts or any effects concerned markets or world economy.

    Is there anyone? who can confidently explain both situation, and all possible end outcome of, if Fed hike or not hike Rates.

    1. Econ 101. No serious economist would challenge the assertion that low interest rates stimulate the economy and high interest rates suppress it. The records shows this to be so.

      1. Dear Miserable,

        Thanks for feed back.

        Can you please explain me further about " If low interest rate can or is stimulate the Economy, then what about the history of Japan or alike countries? since long, wheres they kept Interest rate @ ZERO or around, then too, not just stimulation but even they just cant sustain their Economies, and as against that there are many countries, just like India, where the interest rates are quite High even though they have achieve growth, without any such so called suppression effects".
