The Fed & the Future
Posted on December 16, 2015 by Martin Armstrong
While everyone seems to place a huge question of will the Fed raise rates or not, the markets have factored in the rate rise already for sometime. The Fed was scheduled to raise rates in June, but the IMF turned to the press to criticize them to prevent rate hike. Then in September, the IMF, ECB and other governments all pleaded with the Fed not to raise rates.. The trend will change. The Fed has no choice and that seems to be what the pundits do not get.
Looking ahead, there is absolutely no question that rates will go nuts. It appears that the Fed pressure will rise sharply in March. Do not forget, that as capital flows into the USA, we will see asset inflation (stock market rise) and the gap between the non-investing and those who invest (“rich”) will widen. This will increase the pressure on the Fed to raise rates to stop the bubble, which will be cause from external sources and not some socialistic agenda.
We will be putting together a special report on the Yield Curve which will go nuts and really create tremendous problems for central banks, hedge funds, and be the real harbinger of chaos. This will be announced when ready after the 1st of the Year. So for now, sit back and enjoy the show. The longer the Fed has appeased the rest of the world, the worse the future has become. Money has a value and it is not ZERO.
PS: Inside Socrates we have the Fed Discount rate, VIX, and Fed Funds.
