1 ETF to Buy Before the End of the Year and 1 to Sell

The Fed is expected to keep hiking rates till it achieves the target inflation rate of 2%. However, the pace of such hikes is scheduled to drop eventually. Fed Chair Jerome Powell recently stated that the central bank could start moderating the pace of rate increases as soon as the December meeting.

He added, “We don’t want to overtighten, so that’s why we are slowing down, and we are going to find our way to where the right level is.” Benchmark indices gained substantially over Powell’s assurance.
