Axel Merk: The Fed May Raise Rates, But It Will Remain Behind the Curve

  • Print

Will the Federal Reserve raise rates this fall, and if so, will the increase make any difference? Jim welcomes Axel Merk, President and Chief Investment Officer of Merk Investments LLC. Axel discusses the implications for the Fed raising interest rates, and why they will still remain behind the curve going forward. He also notes that that Fed policy has bred complacency, taking risk and volatility out of the market, and why we may see that change with rising rates. Axel and Jim also look at the situation in Greece, and how the proposed deal will affect the value of the Euro. Axel also discusses the potential for contagion spreading to other debt-laden countries in the Euro zone. He also covers gold, stocks, and the most attractive currencies in which to invest.
