Why Gold Why Now

Will December’s Fed Meeting Bring a Rate Hike?

A lot of discussion is taking place regarding the possibility of an interest rate hike in the near future. When the Fed increases rates, expect it will have an immediate impact on the price of gold, silver and equities, causing them to decline. A rate hike will also have a direct effect on the banks who borrow money from the Fed. Consumers will see increases in mortgage rates and credit card interest rates and banks will begin to charge consumers and corporations a higher rate to borrow money.

With a struggling economy, does raising rates sound like a good plan? What do you think the Fed is trying to accomplish by raising rates as they look out the window over the pond and see negative interest rates popping up all over the globe?

It seems that when banks make business loans more expensive, especially in an economic slowdown, companies will have to pay higher rates and they will in turn put off any expansion. This will further slow the economy. With higher rates, consumers will have less discretionary income which would also contribute to a slowing economy. For the equity investor, rising interest rates will put pressure on their individual stock holdings and have the potential to affect future earnings.

It seems many of the talking heads in the media along with a few hawkish Fed Presidents are putting pressure on Chairwoman Yellen to raise rates in December? What do they know that they are not telling us?

All a rate hike will do is lessen the amount of money in circulation, which in turn will keep inflation below their target rate. It also makes borrowing more expensive which effects how consumers and corporations spend money.

First quarter gross domestic product (GDP) came in at 0.8 percent and the second quarter was a little better at 1.4 percent. The next GDP release will be on October 28.

This will be a very important number, helping to decide what the Fed will do in December. No one sees any change taking place at the November Fed meeting according to the CME Watch tool which has the probably of a rate hike sitting at 7 percent. Whereas the probability of a Fed rate hike in December currently is at 69 percent.
