    Just changing things up a bit here. Instead of conducting these on a meeting-to-meeting basis, I figured to do an overall 2017 rate raising prediction.

    This is a pretty simple and straight forward poll here. You are simply voting for how many times you think the Fed will be hiking rates in 2017.

    Since there are up to 8 scheduled meetings per year, that is the maximum choice here.

    So, w/o further ado have at it with the 2017 Fed predictions in here! :p

    Don't forget to click in your vote on the poll and post your vote on this thread!

    I figured they wouldn't do all 3, so I went with one more.

    I agree, @T0rm3nted -- I feel as if the Fed has locked themselves into A hike at the very least...people might freak if they don't hike at all in 2017. But 3?! Nah...I say they hike once b/c they have to, but that's it.

    Put me in for a "Once." vote, please!

    Twice.

    But they will be at the end of 2017 after the big first quarter drawdown.

    Hmm, it's interesting to see that this poll isn't as decisive as some of our other polls.

    I'm gonna go ahead and say the Fed raises just ONCE in 2017.

    Believe it or not I was actually contemplating going with "None at all" here. :eek: But nah, I think one more hike would be it for the next 12 months is my thinking.

    I voted 2. Symbolically for not having any faith in what the Fed says. I think we only raise rates when other countries are okay with it.

    Confident we'll have 2 or fewer.
    One worry (for more hikes) was that Yellen would be anti-Trump, but I'm not seeing that right now.

    Well looks like 3 times would be the correct call unless we get some really bad economic data in the coming weeks :p
