In the event of a federal rate hike, in mid-December, there will be many pros and cons. Some of the pros include higher interest rates for savers and more interest income for retirees. A rate hike could also help people who are on-the-fence about buying a house get off the fence. It could also help to strengthen the dollar bill and might lead to a slight jump in bank loans. The con that people are most worried about is a higher interest rates on loans. People are also worried about a rise in inflation.
