When will the next recession hit?
The Federal Reserve’s key interest rate will remain at zero for years to come, according to a report by Moody’s Analytics, and economists are increasingly convinced that the next downturn will hit much sooner than later.
The Federal Reserve is expected to start raising interest rates next month, and analysts are expecting a big spike in the money supply and economic growth in coming years.
A strong economy is key to maintaining the Fed’s bond-buying program.
The Fed’s policy rate, the key interest-rate that can trigger the Fed to start buying bonds, is set at a level that can be maintained for a decade or more.
Since the end of last year, the Fed has held its key rate near zero, meaning it hasn’t increased it.
It will be at zero next month when the Fed will begin raising interest-bearing securities to buy the bonds it has bought to buy federal bonds from its bond buying program.
In March, the Federal Reserve raised its key interest rates again to a range of 0.25% to 0.50%.
A key concern for investors is that the Fed may decide to raise interest rates too soon and cause a recession, rather than wait to see how the economy develops.
“The market is already saying we’re going to see a big drop in GDP growth this year,” said Jim Cramer, president of Cramer Investments.
There are a number of other factors that could affect the economy, including the possibility that the economy slows down further.
If the economy shrinks faster than expected, investors could lose money.
If it slows down faster than anticipated, investors may have to pay higher interest rates, Cramer said.
With the U.S. economy growing at a slower rate than in the past, investors are more likely to take risks.
Cramer also said that the riskier riskier the risk, the more likely it is to happen.
Investors are taking a long-term view and will look at the economy for several more years.
But that doesn’t mean they should buy stocks, Crama said.
