Recession Indicator: US interest rate cycles
- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD, Senior Financial Planner
Economic history tells us that every time the United States begins increasing interest rates a recession follows afterwards more than 50% of the time.
The market believes that Jerome Powell, Chair of Federal Reserve is going to continue to increase interest rates to slow down the rate of inflation but it is coming to an end.

Increasing interest rates should not be an investor’s focus.
Benjamin Graham taught that it is the buy price that matters when investing and now is a good time to buy beucase asset prices are discounted.
If a recession does follow in the United State then it will become an even better time for investors to buy more quality asset at a discounted price.
