CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “There appears to be a rising concern that the Federal Reserve may well be on the verge of making a serious policy error, in terms of its keenness to normalise monetary policy in order to be better prepared for the next crisis, when it comes. The only problem with this is that their eagerness to do this is causing problems in other parts of the global economy, and in so doing is starting to cause a chain reaction, which looks set to rebound back at them.”
