Will the Fed Raise Interest Rates AGAIN in 2023? #trending

February 20, 2023

In this highlight, we discuss if the Fed will raise interest rates again in 2023 and what you should expect.


Inflation is a term that has been thrown around a lot recently, and for good reason. With the recent release of data showing that inflation is a little bit higher than expected, there is speculation that the Federal Reserve might have to raise rates more than markets previously thought.

We have a question, they are asking about inflation and how financial individuals should think about it. While inflation has been up, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we are back to a wide-open economy. The reality is that everything has a lag, so don’t get caught up in the news cycle. Despite the inflation increase, there have been positive indicators that inflation is under control, and the Federal Reserve has acknowledged this. It is important to stay the course and not feel like you have to change your allocation, especially if you are still years away from retirement. Short-term financial decisions such as online savings accounts and brokerage accounts can easily earn you three and a half to four and a half percent on your cash reserves, which is impacted by inflation. Long-term financial decisions, on the other hand, will have minor impacts on your life changes and needs.

It is important to remember that inflation is just another moment in time that should not distract you from the why and what you are trying to build assets for. Short-term stuff like credit card rates, which are at all-time highs right now, should be given more attention. As always, stay the course and focus on the long-term. This is sound advice, and hopefully, with a good plan, you can feel okay even when things like this happen.

In conclusion, inflation is a natural part of the economy, and while it is important to pay attention to it, it shouldn’t be a distraction from long-term financial goals. Short-term financial decisions should be given more attention, but ultimately, it is essential to stay the course and focus on the long-term plan. By doing so, financial individuals can build assets that will provide them with the stability and security they need in the years to come.
