    Let's just put this to a vote and see what the average trader thinks of the fed recent decision to hike.

    For the record I think it was a huge mistake and if anything shows signs of instability, one minute they say no bail out then the next they "try" and give away $$$.

  3. Which country's fed hiked by 50bp? I missed that headline. I'd like to trade my $USD for their currency.
  4. Huge mistake.

    Everybody is raising rates while we lower. I look for Japan and ECB to raise soon for the next 10% correction.
  5. Only US has fed; other countries have the central bank.

    Look at the bond market crashed; I guess the mortgages rate can't lower; either stay high; or goes higher.

    Nice try Ben; he is going to hike the fed's rate in no time.
  6. I think you meant cut. About the only thing they hiked was the cost of food and gas.
