The last time U.S. interest rates were on a sustained upward trend was just over 10 years ago, in summer 2006. George W Bush was president, ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ by Shakira was at the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, and no one had heard of Justin Bieber.
It was just after 8:00 pm on Friday August 5th. Most Americans were well on their way to enjoying a summer weekend, one of the last before schools reopen. Wall Street averages had rebounded that day for a modest gain, and investors had tucked away their concerns for the time being to enjoy the weekend.
