After the most recent interest rate increase in June, the Federal Reserve has signaled that it is likely to continue raising interest rates this year, possibly even as often as once per quarter. In fact, fear that interest rates may rise faster than previously predicted has caused some volatility in the markets. Bond investors have been concerned about this for years, but this time it looks like its going to happen.
