How to Profit When Yellen Raises Rates (Before Dec. 31)

interest rate hike

When Janet Yellen said there was "no fixed timetable" for raising interest rates last week, the markets actually dipped.

It's anyone's guess as to why a market that owes most of its gains to the central bank's low interest rates would dip on news that low interest rates would continue.

It doesn't really matter.

Because I think a rate hike of some kind will be in effect by Dec. 31. They've been under 1% since 2008, and at least three of the FOMC's voting members oppose the decision to hold rates steady.

It's likely to be another token 25 basis points, and the rates might even go up just so they can go back down again, but that doesn't matter, either - I think traders have to prepare for a "rate hike event" and some choppy markets before the end of the quarter.

So the best thing we can do now is get into position to protect our money... and make a ton more of it.
