"Interest rates are low until they're not..." Old Wall Street Proverb

The Federal Open Market Committee today raised interest rates an unexpected 50 bp to a 1% Fed funds rate, or short term rate. Stocks rallied on the news that the Fed made a strong first move to combat the coming Biden hyperinflation.

What investors, and the American public need to understand, is that the historical average of the U.S. 10 year bond is approximately 5%. Right now the 10 year is trading a 2.946%. The point being, the 10 year bond is still well below its historical average.

However, interest rates have been rising steadily, but we are no where near the peak. In fact, we are just getting started.

It is no secret that OBiden is purposefully destroying the American economy that Trump built. (Yes, Barack, he did build that)

Expect a large part of your future income to be taken up by debt service cost. In other words, refinance or pay down debt.
