Feds Raise Rates 75 Basis Point

The Federal Reserve mentions that they'll likely increase another 75 BPs in July. 

Largest rate increase since 1994

Federal officials release the largest increase in rates since 1994. No doubt that is the reason we are seeing wild volatility in the investing markets. One thing that the markets hate more than anything is uncertainty. These rate hikes spin markets into a vortex of chaos. In turn we see stocks, funds and crypto stumble and fall as the uncertainty washes over them. 

What is the latest rate increase?

75 basis points (.75%)

Are rate increases causing capitulation?

Yes, we are currently seeing investors fold their positions due to market volatility. 

When will next inflation report release?

July 13, 2022, at 8:30 A.M. Eastern Time. Mark your calendars!
