Two More Fed Rate Hikes Likely in 2017

Quote:
We think the yield on the 10-year Treasury note will hit 3% by the end of 2017, up from 2.5% currently.


Quote:
the FOMC expects three quarter-point increases in 2018 and three more in 2019, bringing the federal funds rate to 3%, the Fedís preferred level.


Quote:
If Trump gets the tax cuts and spending increases he wants, then rates might move up faster in anticipation of higher inflation.
