September rate hike poll results

Market participants predicted the following result to the question:

The Fed decides on the US interest rate on Sept 17th. Which way will it go?

 

An overwhelmingly large number of our readers got it right. 70%+ of you voted the same way as Fed – no hike. So, will you now be bullish risk assets and position accordingly? The next meeting is in October, and I for one do not think too much will change between now and then. The corporate bond market still retains it’s lure; there’s little or no money leaving it.

There are some good opportunities to add risk given the recent weakness; time to go shopping.
