In the US, Interest Rates have already started going up a bit


What will be the impact of interest rate hikes by the US Fed next year on markets?

Jim Rogers  : Most central banks follow the market, and the market dictates what has to happen. In the US, interest rates have already started going up a bit, and they will continue to go higher, in my view. The US central bank will be forced to cut back its bond purchases and probably they will, and that will lead to higher interest rates.
At some point, we are going to have interest rates that will affect markets though that may not happen for a while. But when it happens, central banks will panic, the US central bank will panic and then they all will again start buying bonds in order to calm down the markets. Then again, interest rates will come down for while, and there will be bubble in the markets.
