FED obeyed.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday reiterated that the U.S. Federal Reserve was raising interest rates too quickly.

Supposed to be an independent agency.

What is the rush to bring the rates up and ruin the market (and eventually the economy) just so we can stay course on some dogmatic mindset? If they start cutting for no reason, then sure it may be problematic. There have been plenty of rate increases. Let the economy digest it.

They blinked and the cycle continues. They continue to have no credibility, because who wants to be preside over a collapse?

Think how fragile we are that the markets tumbled as they both raised and jawboned rates and included a tapering of their Mortgage Backed Security holdings.

The funniest part that Feds would be blamed anyway

If they said they will go as planned: They're fools, not listening to the xxx
If not: They're fools who listening to the xxx

The fools actually are those who think they could to outsmart with "simple guaranteed scheme" or by bying gold lol
