    Fed Meetings Show .5% Hikes For Next Two Meetings

    Meeting minutes of the Fed released Wednesday showed a strong commitment to two .5% hikes in June and July. This will follow a May 4th hike of .5% to a target range between .75% and 1.00%, as the Fed struggles to contain rampant inflation. Higher rates are designed to contain inflation by increasing the cost to borrow money, which reduces the buying power of American consumers, and makes sellers reduce prices or contain price hikes, to maintain sales.

    ďMost participants judged that 50 basis point increases in the target range would likely be appropriate at the next couple of meetings,Ē read the minutes from the May meeting.

    After Friday’s inflation report, investor opinions on where the Fed would fall on interest rates rapidly shifted, as Fed funds futures, a measure of investor sentiment, rapidly began to show increased bets on a 0.75% hike. Presently investors appear to have priced in a 75% chance of a 0.5% rate hike, and a 25% chance of a 0.75% hike. last week, prior to the inflation report, investors were pricing in a 90% chance of a 0.5% rate hike.

    If we raised rates to 6% the interest on our debt would soon be 2 trillion.

    And then we could default.

    Every country in the world should default together.
