About our interview he says, "Since 2008, the Federal Reserve has embarked upon several rounds of 'Quantitative Easing'. In December 2015, the Fed began to reverse those moves with the first rate hike of 25 basis points. The Fed is now adding 'Quantitative Tightening' by selling bonds and mortgage backed securities into the market.  Investor must know what to expect out of this new program and how to take proactive steps to protect their wealth."
