FED Raises Interest Rates

16165619661_60ac1a71eb_oThe Federal Reserve announced at 2pm CST today, December 16th 2015, that they are going to raise interest rates by one quarter of one percent (0.25%) in a unanimous vote by the Federal Open Market Committee. This is not a large surprise as much of the market anticipated this move based on comments from Federal Reserve chairwoman, Janet Yellen, in previous press conferences and other published meeting minutes. It is important to note that this fed rate hike is small and only the beginning of a gradual plan to increase rates in 0.25% increments. This steady approach is aimed at bringing rates to normal levels without jolting economic health and markets.
