  1. any ideas?
  2. It does not need to rise too much before the economy of US soften. Then the fed will lower the rates again :)

    Don't forget the impact of interest rate change takes some time to get into the system, even for, say, a critical rate level that can cause slow down in economy. And it takes even more time before the effects are measured in economic reports :)
  3. If your relying on past data to tell you the future, think about becoming an economist or a historian.
  4. Kind off reminds me of that old saying:

    Why do we have economic forecasts?


    To make astrology respectable.

  5. Is future data available?
  6. ^ witty.

    If a mod wishes, they can add a poll to this thread. Someone suggested it to me, and I think it would be a great idea but alas we normal forum members lack the ability.
