The big news this month is that the Federal Reserve decided to hold off on raising interest rates. With the stronger employment numbers and the economy picking up momentum, this decision came as a big surprise as a rate hike was widely anticipated by many analysts. The recent signs of a global economic slowdown and the decrease in energy prices added more reasons for the Fed to remain cautious. One of the questions going into 2016 will be the timing and strength of any rate hikes.
