EMPOWER EXCELLENCE: Pay Attention to the Fed!

PAY ATTENTION TO THE FED!

REALLY?  WHY?

IT’S EASY TO TELL YOU THAT YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO THE FED (THE FEDERAL OPEN MARKET COMMITTEE), BUT IT IS TOUGH TO STAY FOCUSED WHEN THEY SPEAK IN A LANGUAGE THAT IS FOREIGN TO MOST OF US.  THEY DO NOT GIVE US SPECIFIC INFORMATION.  THEY ARE NOT A GOVERNMENT BODY KNOWN FOR TRANSPARENCY.  SINCE THE MID-90’S THE FED ISSUES PARAGRAPHS COMMUNICATING WHAT IT DID AT ITS MOST RECENT MEETING.  IT IS NOT AN OPEN BODY WHEN IT COMES TO SHARING WHAT IT DID!  THEY JUST MET ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18TH, BUT I AM WILLING TO BET THAT NO ONE CAN REALLY TELL YOU WHAT THEY DID!    RIGHT NOW THEY ARE NOT LOOKING TO RAISE INTEREST RATES AS JOB GROWTH HAS CONTINUED.  IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 6 YEARS THAT THE INTEREST RATE HAS BEEN AT 0%.  AFTER THAT MEETING THE DOLLAR IS SAID TO BE STRONGER AND U.S. STOCKS HAVE INCREASED IN VOLATILITY.  WHILE WE ARE BEING TOLD THAT THE ECONOMY IS GROWING STRONGER, THE FED DOES NOT SEEM TO AGREE.  IF THEY DID, THEY WOULD BE LOOKING AT RAISING THE RATES, OR AT LEAST PREPARING EVERYONE THAT THE RATES WILL BE RISING.

could it be that no one, not even the Fed knows what will happen when they do raise rates?

in the words of Sara Bareilles, be “BRAVE”!  and

  • talk in plain English and tell us what is really happening to the U.S. economy!
  • begin to educate everyone what will happen when rates start rising!
  • be BRAVE!
