    hey guys,
    im new to wall street and i got a question...

    with my inexperience of rate cuts and rate hike i was wondering how it affects the market, is there a sell off in an event of a hike, and is there a rally when it is cut?

    what are the stocks that are affected? is it only U.S based companies? Are all stocks affected by the cut on the day of the annoucement?

    basically wondering the initial reaction that wall street has to a rate hike or rate cut! and what companies are affected? dji? or all stocks?

    rate hike it is, the fools praying for a rate cut can keep hoping for one because its not happening.
