THE US FEDERAL RESERVE BRINGS AN END TO A SEVEN-YEAR PERIOD OF VIRTUALLY ZERO INTEREST RATES


The Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike and subsequent increases will be a serious test for


financial markets. Higher interest rates are expected to put pressure on emerging markets through a rising dollar and increased borrowing costs. How markets perform with the specter of higher interest rates will likely be the most important factor to watch in 2016. The extended duration of the Fed’s zero interest rate policy will likely make the transition to a more “normal” interest rate environment a bit more difficult. Other central banks around the world are actually becoming more accommodative while the Fed is tightening financial conditions. Going forward, how these divergent central bank policies will play out is a distinct variable in the global economic outlook.
