The Federal Reserve on Wednesday raised interest rates a quarter of a point to a range between 1 percent and 1.25 percent, citing the relatively steady growth of the economy and need to return to higher baselines.
The decision was expected after months of hinting. It is the second such hike by the central bank in 2017.


Fed officials said “realized and expected labor market conditions and inflation justified the hike, which was supported by all Federal Open Markets Committee (FOMC) members but Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari."
FOMC also hinted toward future hikes this year, saying it “expects that economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant gradual increases in the federal funds rate.”
The Fed has started bringing interest rates slowly back toward historic averages after years of record lows, held steady so the economy could recover from the Great Recession. Fed officials warned that keeping rates too low, for too long, could limit the bank’s ability to respond to a financial crisis.

After rate hikes in December 2015 and December 2016, the Fed raised rates again in March, as unemployment and inflation hovered around the bank’s target ranges.
“The federal funds rate is likely to remain, for some time, below levels that are expected to prevail in the longer run,” wrote Fed officials on Wednesday. “However, the actual path of the federal funds rate will depend on the economic outlook as informed by incoming data.” 
The Fed also detailed its plans to sell off trillions in securities purchased during the financial crisis to help stabilize the United States economy. The bank will sell $6 billion per month of Treasury bonds it holds, and $4 billion per month in agency debt and mortgage-backed securities.  
The Fed will increase those caps by $6 billion every three months, until the bank is selling off $30 billion in Treasury bonds and $20 billion in debt each month.

Federal Reserve issues FOMC statement June 14, 2017
https://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/pressreleases/monetary20170614a.htm



Quote
In view of realized and expected labor market conditions and inflation, the Committee decided to raise the target range for the federal funds rate to 1 to 1-1/4 percent. The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting some further strengthening in labor market conditions and a sustained return to 2 percent inflation.

When rates are increased the national debt increases ...  and the economy slows ...

...

#2 Overwhelming debt is the grease that keeps the wheels moving toward a declaration of martial law

The truth is that our overwhelming debt did not begin with Obama. But why has it gotten so unmanageable? That question is more incomprehensible when, back in 2006, then Senator Obama called President Bush “unpatriotic” for wanting to raise the federal debt. When was when the national debt was a fraction of $18 trillion we now face.

The federal debt stands at $19,269,318,074,242. That’s 19 trillion, 269 billion, 318 million, 74 thousand, 242 dollars. That amounts to $59,559 for every person living in the U.S. (and that has nothing to do with your personal debt for your mortgage, credit cards, etc.) That 105% of the U.S. gross domestic product and 550% of our annual federal revenues.

Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of  famine and war.

So, who is right? Senator Obama when he said that taking on more debt was “unpatriotic”? Or President Obama when he says, “There is no debt crisis”? Does it even matter? After all, every government owes money to someone somewhere.

Fact: When debts rise faster than economic output, higher debt implies more state control (including personal affairs), as well as higher taxes as has been imposed in recent years.

Fact: Government debts must be rolled over at regular intervals and amounts to a popularity test for individual governments. If a government fails a particular test (or vote), that government can be plunged into crisis
.

So, are we headed for unsustainable debt as a nation? Some respected economists say we are nearly there? If that occurs, the second part of Obama’s plan to implement martial law is nearly complete.

I was waiting to hear what they would do during this distraction they created.  Many other countries have gone through this and failed to get rid of the communism.  Taking down America is the ultimate because out of their own mouths, they cannot have communism (sadism, paedophilia, satan worship, killing, slavery, erradication of the human race) with America alive & well.

One thing is for sure.  With the far left fascists/communists --->psychopathy rules the day.

"It's A Perfect Storm Of Negativity" - Veteran Trader Rejoins The Dark Side

Look at the chart of the combined balance sheet for the Fed, BoJ and ECB closely. The acceleration is mind boggling. You don’t throw that sort of liquidity into the global financial system and not expect it to have an effect. It’s actually surprising that stocks didn’t run even farther.
,...
Stocks exploded higher. Even with some very accomplished hedge fund veterans preaching caution, the price just kept rallying in their face. The more bearish they got, the more it rallied.

But over the past few months, slowly the story broke down. The President, once revered by Wall Street, failed to pass his health reform legislation, which pushed the tax cuts further into the future. Shortly thereafter it became obvious the much salivated infrastructure stimulus would also be difficult to pass through Congress. Almost overnight, the President become more of a liability for US equities than an elixir.

Yet stocks kept rising. Even in the face of troubling political news from President Trump, US stocks pushed to new highs. Almost makes you think the rally had nothing to do with Trump in the first place.

And maybe it didn’t. Maybe it is as simple as the ECB and Bank of Japan’s batshit crazy money printing overwhelming the financial markets.

...
To top it all off, the Fed is not only braking, but they are also preparing the market for a balance sheet unwind. This is like QE in reverse.

It’s a perfect storm of negativity. An overly tight Fed that is determined to withdraw monetary stimulus even in the face of a declining economy.

TRUMP RALLY=> Stock Market Sets Seven New All-Time Records in June – Media Silent
Jim Hoft Jun 20th, 2017 7:38 am —176 Comments
Guest post by Joe Hoft

The main stream media (MSM) won’t report it but In the month of June the DOW reached either a new high, its second highest close or its third highest close ever in all days but one.  The Dow reached 21,528 on Monday.

Seven of the 13 days the market was open in June so far have resulted in new highs!

 The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 17% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – yesterday DOW closed at 21,528 for another all time record closing high).
 * Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW is up 9%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th.)
 * The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.
 * The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.
 * On February 28th President Trump matched President Reagan’s 1987 record for most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!
 * The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ have both set new all-time highs during this period.
 * The US Stock Market gained $2 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!
 * The S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.

Before the November 8th election, the prior high for the DOW under President Obama was on August 15th, 2016. This is why the ‘Trump Rally’ is such an anomaly and totally due to President Trump and his winning policies and the hope that he generates.

This Trump Rally is amazing and Yesterday was again history! Put it in the record books!

Who creates "money" in the first place, and how do they create it?

If you ask either a Hillary supporter or a Trump supporter that question, ninety-nine times out of a hundred you'll get the same Miss Teen South Carolina-type answer.

Great recession fears as bankers warn next global crash could arrive 'with a vengeance'
Next major recession could be brewing in countries like China, a new report warns
 Caroline Mortimer     @cjmortimer     33 mins ago

A new financial crisis is brewing in the emerging economies and it could hit “with a vengeance”, an influential group of central bankers has warned.

Emerging markets such as China are showing the same signs that their economies are overheating as the US and the UK demonstrated before the financial crisis of 2007-08, according to the annual report of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

Claudio Borio, the head of the BIS monetary and economic department, said a new recession could come “with a vengeance” and “the end may come to resemble more closely a financial boom gone wrong”.
