30-Day vs 15-Year Farm Credit Bond

The Federal Funds rate has effectively been zero from early 2009 to late 2015. The Fed Funds rate is the short-term interest rate set by the Federal Reserve and upon which other short-term U.S. interest rates are based. However, interest rates are rising as the Federal Reserve adjusts monetary policy. The Federal Funds rate increased nine times since 2015. The chart below illustrates the effect of the Fed Funds rate increases as you see the gap between long-term and short-term rates continues to decrease. Now is a good time for borrowers to consider the potential effect of rising interest rates on their operations. Call your FCS Financial loan officer today to discuss interest rate risk and options available including fixed rates.
