Federal Interest Rates

Interest Rates Continute to Trend Upward

A January 4, 2019 article posted on www.marketwatch.com indicates that an interest rate hike is likely forthcoming. Economists believe that the robust December 2018 jobs report will cause the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates in 2019.

A total of 300,000+ jobs were added in December, far exceeding economists’ forecasts of a 182,000 gain.

Prior to this jobs report economists were of the mind that rates would not change in the short term, but now many are expecting another hike in June.
