Thread: G Fund Going Up?

    Post imported post

    Hi Coolhand. TheFed rateis the driver of the bank prime lending rate and the Fed wants to raise the rate in a progressive manner as a combatant against inflation that is growing around us per their market basket. Otherwise they will be completely behind the power curve on"being able" to influence or contain it. So "play things" will get more expensive if we buy on credit. Now on the other hand, you underscore a very valid point, plausible stalling employment if they act too harshly. Raising rates while the employment sags is just as damagingas it puts us into recession. This is a difficult hand the Fed has to play so I see at least 4 1/4 point increases as a minimum next year or a ceiling of 3% which isn't very much.

    Think MT is on vacation. I know he would like to weigh in on this one as he sees much higher interest rates on the horizon.

    Good morning all! Still think we have a great 6 weeks ahead of us after the FOMC or maybe concurrent with announcement.

    My personal feeling is they won't raise rates next week but will raise them .5% at the next meeting. Not that it matters to me, credit free here............:^

    Good luck,

    I believe the fed is locked into a .25 rate hike at the next meeting. However the wording on the next fed report should be extremely interesting. Dr Greenspan will be playing theI told you so gamehe has started to play this year.

    The yield curve is getting a little crazy. Why get a 10year at 4.12 when you can get a 5 year for 3.52? For the additional five years you only gain .6%. IS THAT WORTH THE RISK??? The closer they get together the more concerned I will get. 2000 we saw this pattern.

    Good luck!

    We are both wrong smed, Friday WAS the 7th day, but I mistakenly thought the G went up every 5 to 6 days, it's actually every 6-7 days. Cost me a penny to learn this lesson. I'll pay a penny to learn something new.

    Oh, you were wrong twice.........:P

    Time to go win my penny back playing poker, have a good day..........

    I like this type of damage. The market can inflict this on me anytime it wants. EAFE up 0.7%, dollar down 0.5% against the euro. :^
