The following question asked that suppose you have $5,000 to invest. At a restaurant, youoverhear someone saying that the Fed is almost certain to increase the discount rate dramatically. If this rumor is correct, do you think that you should invest now or wait until after the increase in the discount rate? Or doesn't it matter? Be sure to explain the reasons for your preference (or lack of it) in this regard.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 5:35 pm ad1c9bdddf
